Dr. Brennan says that the presence of mercury fulminate is consistent with the existence of a tannery from 17th century. Mercury fulminate is an extremely unstable compound (much like nitroglycerin) commonly used in percussion caps or cartridge strikers and way too dangerous to be used in any large-scale industrial process. Furthermore, mercury salts, although common in felt production until 20th century, were not used in leather tanning. Last but not least, mercury fulminate has been first produced in the end of 18th century (first described in 1799), at least a hundred years after its alleged use. See more »

Serious disappointment
12 November 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This was a very lazy, very disappointing episode. It was also incredibly old fashioned. Surely we left the whole "going off to Blighty to watch them drive on the wrong side with their stiff upper lips" garbage behind thirty years ago! But no, obviously Hart Hanson still thinks it's funny. It wasn't clever, it wasn't amusing and it added nothing to the show. I'm just glad it's only a two-parter. For a while I was worried they were going to spend the whole series there, which would mean I would have to skip the series, because I won't waste any more time on this. Get back to the US and back to the lab.

How about spending some time to tell us who Gormegon was. That little story arc fizzled out like a wet firework. All tidied up in a matter of minutes. I hope this show hasn't jumped the shark.
