I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it, so let's just say part three concludes this mini-series brilliantly.
I watched part 1 and sat there going "Eh... not that funny, sorry guys." Then I watched part 2 and was like "OK... OK... So, uh, you're going with movie references, Family Guy style?" There were some excellent quotes in both episodes, though. Then part 3 completely redeemed it.
Acting's good, plot's interesting and it feels much more mature. I'd definitely say it's better than a lot of what Series 8 had to offer.
As for breaking the whole affair into three episodes, it probably wasn't the best idea, but it's being released on DVD so we'll all be able to watch it as intended.
Oh, one last thing: SO glad they ditched the laugh track! There just aren't enough jokes in the show for that to be a good idea; lots of serious moments.
