Storyline

A voice from the future tells Alex she must fight post-op infection, which she interprets as Summers. Hunt's grass 'Rock Salmon' Doyle is murdered after divulging an upcoming heist, which Alex realizes is Operation Rose, in which corrupt cops will rob a bullion van. She even pinpoints where the crime will take place, correctly leading to successful arrests and several deaths, including Summers. And so she wakes up in hospital in her own time, free at last... except for an annoying face which crops up on her television screen. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

When Ray Carling is observing the blue van driving out of the yard and saying, "The bricks are in the van," the camera turns and follows the van up the street. As it does this, there is a dark green Rover 600 series car in the corner of the screen. These were made from 1993-1999 and this particular car is an 'N' registration, registered 1995-1996.

A great 2nd series finale
22 September 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's been a great second series of 'Ashes' and it comes to a head in this gripping finale.

I think Keeley Hawes gets a bit of stick for her role here, but for me I believe she does a great job, capturing all the sides to Alex's personality brilliantly.

There are lots of great moments here, with the dark humour helping to balance out the drama. I agree with the previous reviewer - Shaz's big moment was great.

We are left on a huge cliff-hanger. Lets see what happens next!
