Tommy is saved for the moment when Whittington wrongly assumes that he is Brown's money man, Clement Drennan, and he also briefly locates the incarcerated Jane Finn. Meanwhile Tuppence confides in barrister James Peel, a visitor to Rita's flat, her suspicions regarding the singer's involvement with Brown and an overheard plot to kill a high-flying American. Both Beresfords' cover is blown though Tuppence manages to escape from Rita and her sinister caller, bookie Lucky, bringing Carter to the flat to find Rita has been murdered. Tommy, on the other hand, is far from safe as the real Drennan turns up. Written by don @ minifie-1

A pretty good continuation.
14 August 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a very good continuation, it maintained the quality of the opening part. Jessica Raine continues to impress as Tuppence. Alice Krige is wonderfully over the top as Opera Singer Rita Vandemeyer, her apartment is incredibly decorated, great production values.

Walliams is wonderfully uncomfortable masquerading as Drennan, it's either brilliantly or dreadfully done. When McKeown discovers he's a fraud they play out a really good scene, McKeown played by the strikingly handsome Samuel Oatley.

Raine is hilarious snooping about Rita's apartment, she did not look happy holding that cat. Vanemeyer is such a deplorable character, surely her imminent demise will be welcomed.

Walliams manages to inject some humour without sending it up, his drunken scenes and hangover are brilliantly played out.

Overall it's pretty good.
