A stunning finale
9 August 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Episode 7 has brilliant set up the finale, Part 8 is a superb episode, capping what I believe to have been an excellent series. The series naturally is not Life on Mars, but it was an update, a progression. It seems that D-day is fast approaching for Alex's parents. Will the red balloon finally be explained. Can she save them, will she get home? Is the gorgeous Evan all he makes out to be? Lots of questions we need answers to. It's always a treat to have Sean Harris in a piece of TV, he's an outstanding actor, Alex tries to get answers out of his character, is he responsible for her parents murder as well as shooting her? Alex driving a bright pink tank is possibly the most insane scene in the whole series. Lord Scarman is brilliantly played by Geoffrey Hutchings. This truly was a stunning finale, Keeley Hawes putting in her best performance, some questions were answered, others were to continue into the next series.
