A very impressive episode.
21 January 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Vera and Aiden are called to a domestic, Alison Glen is found dead by her young son Elliot, prime suspect is her husband Michael, who lied about his whereabouts on the night of her death. Alison's estranged father Robert is also in the picture, as is Michael's wayward brother Jason.

Black Ice last week had been a bit slow and confusing, Home had put the series firmly back on track, it was gripping, intriguing and easy to follow. A great set of characters, ultimately a good list of suspects. The script was first rate, some great dialogue between Vera and Aiden. This was an ultimately satisfying Episode.

It is no wonder millions tune in to watch Blethyn, she is an outstanding actress, and showcased her skills once again, her scenes with the young lad Elliot were so good. Vincent Regan and Christopher Fairbank were both particularly good, Rita Tushingham was a joy to watch, she is fabulous.
