Good fun - some sexual tension
22 June 2012 | by (Glasgow) – See all my reviews

Thought this was fun, but not the most intriguing episode.

A hayseed entry to a poker tournament disappears and the tournament holder calls in the Lightman Foundation.

Turns out he has been banned from Vegas because he took down some high rollers.

There is a fun gambling sub-plot which is amusing and also some purposely stereotyped poker players.

The chemistry between the Dr and Poppy is palpable, and that has a twist to it later which is quite amusing also. Don't trust anyone in Poker.

Some of the game-play tactics the players adopt against each other are fun and it's quite a quick fire episode, so hence the rating 7 out of 10.

Bit confused about the relationship between Tim Roth and Kelli Williams after the 2 previous episodes given what happens here. It may well be explained in series 1 which I missed.
