Did You Know?


It wouldn't be necessary for the Commissioner to "call in a favour" with the newspaper to place a photo of the boat. Local papers are always looking for items for publication, and would be happy to place an article and/or photograph for the police. See more »

Farewell Ardal.
31 January 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

A man goes missing, his body is later discovered floating in the sea, Jack investigates, but his mind is focussed elsewhere, on home.

I'm not sure if it's in any way linked to his leaving, but Ardal has been awesome in this series, and particularly in this, his final episode. I've always been a fan of his time, but recently there has been a conviction and presence about him. I'm glad he didn't have an identical send off to Humphrey. Thanks Ardal, it's been great.

The story was excellent, they have definitely taken the slapstick out of the show, this was a serious story, with a pretty dark theme and emotional conclusion.

Best scene was the chat between Jack and The Commissioner, a fantastic scene, with both men on top form.

As before, it's all change, it was quite funny that Ralf Little was hidden in the trailer, then a minute later the BBC showed Little in all his glory.

Brilliant. 9/10
