Roller-coaster of Classic and Clever Horror

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Episode 4 builds on the foundation of the 3 previous episodes, with twists, turns, double cross and a subtle reality check for those expecting just another Buffy clone. The acting was at times just breathtaking. If you want to see British TV at its very best. Fades is quickly becoming a UK TV classic before your very eyes. I just hope they don't stuff it up at the end. The plot moves forward at a pace in this episode, with sides being drawn and the sign of the battle to come, but equally showing the humanist side with the horror of war, through the medium of good verse evil but without the usual moralistic patter. No side. can take the moral high ground here. Who's to say the future is not the fades, as humanity dwindles. Who's to say that the rebirths are not the next step in the search for what we are. The religious overtones can be seen but also adapted to attempt to quantify what reality is itself, flesh ,spirit or just a re-jig of energy, here once before and here once again. In some ways it re- enforces all views with equal measure.
