The plot thickens
19 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

The plot thickens for Sam Tyler as he learns more about both how life works for the police in the 70's, and also about himself as he tries to get back to 2006.

It's another fast paced, funny in places/gritty in places episode of this well made show, with Glenister and Simm again giving great performances.

My only negative point is that for an episode rated 12 it was quite overly sexual.

Apart from that, a fun hour of entertainment.
