Lots of fun
1 July 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Angel hair is wonderfully amusing, it has a great cast, lots of wit, with arguably a bit of a thin mystery. Jonathan has to investigate a crime, one of kidnap and ransom, or one of blackmail, he must answer how a woman's hair can grow long in a matter of days. Assisting him is Carla, played beautifully by Julia Sawalha, he also has a love interest in the form of the wonderful Tamsin Greig.

Jack Dee is great, as is Trevor Peacock who played his father. I think Renwick focused more on laughs then mystery in this one, and while it's not a patch on the Tailor's Dummy, it's still one of the best episodes in this series.

Great fun. 8/10
