Storyline

Having heard television puppet Orville claim that she 'has made it to hospital' Alex attends at a burglary of her future in-laws and 14-year-old spouse-to-be who obviously fail to recognize her. The thief's fingerprints are those of a crook who faked his death years earlier but has had a sex change, re-emerging as home beautician Gaynor who uses her work to locate victims like the Drakes. Alex is visited by ex-cop Summers,who is also from the 2000s, and who offers her a path home by subscribing to the dodgy Operation Rose, but she is wary,knowing that it implies the corruption Hunt is anxious to kill following adverse press reports of police behaviour in the wake of the death of Mackintosh and his equally dishonest buddy.

Dean Andrews gets a chance to shine
17 September 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The mystery continues as Alex meets the person who claims he can help her get home, while also meeting the 14 year old version of Molly's Dad.

What's great about this episode is that it gives Dean Andrews a chance to flesh out the character of Ray, who is clearly still reeling from the death of Mac in the previous episode, and the corruption story that has run throughout this second series.

With lots of funny moments along the way too, this is a good episode of what has been a much more consistent second series of the 'Life on Mars' spin-off.
