Storyline

Hal is now manager at the Grand,Hatch having scared off his predecessor. When disgruntled TV weatherman Larry Chrysler comes to make a personal appearance Tom,recognizing him as a fellow werewolf,is impressed and invites him to stay at the house and school him in the ways of success. Hal however sees that Larry is a has-been and a free-loader,exploiting Tom,and needs to be got rid of. Alex is befriended by Lady Mary,a mischievous eighteenth century ghost who can read people's minds by feeling their heads. She believes she was Hal's last victim and has successfully prevented him from killing for over two centuries. Alex knows better and gets Hal to confess the truth,leading to another situation where the house-mates must pull together to help one of their own. Dominic Rook,distraught at his department's closure,contemplates suicide but is saved by a phone call from Hal. Written by don @ minifie-1

Tom gets a mentor and Alex meets an old friend of Hal's
21 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the disappearance of the hotel's manageress Hal is promoted to acting manager which naturally irritates Tom. Tom has always felt that he was a bit of a failure so when TV presenter and self-help guru Larry Crysler turns up and Tom realises he is a fellow werewolf he naturally seeks his guidance. Larry is happy to volunteer his help; the problem is he is far from being the success Tom believes him to be. Alex meanwhile follows Hal to a meeting with his two hundred year old, oh so proper, friend Lady Mary… Hal is horrified feeling Alex may corrupt her; what he doesn't know is that when he isn't around she is as far from proper as it is possible to be! She also believes that she was his last victim and that her presence is all that is keeping him on the straight and narrow; Alex believes that she deserves to know the truth; that could be dangerous though.

This episode was considerably less violent than the previous two although that doesn't mean it wasn't entertaining. The stories involving Larry and Mary were fairly self-contained although I have a feeling they may have an effect on the characters that lasts a bit longer. Julian Barratt put in a suitably smarmy performance as Larry and Amanda Drew was fun as Mary; it was quite a surprise when her true personality was shown! If this episode did have a major weakness it was the absence of the evil Captain Hatch; without him there wasn't the sense of genuine unpleasantness.
