Another excellent episode from this exceptional series.
21 October 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Thw Legacy continues series sixteen's run of quality episodes. Stephen Gallagher penned a truly brilliant script, there is so much going on, it's loaded with intrigue, suspense, it asks real questions, raising the issue of masts and power lines, real life issues. The start is dramatic, it draws you in and keeps your attention. The show somehow feels reinvigorated, I loved Tom Ward in it, but Jack and Clarissa have added a new dynamic. Series sixteen has proved a real purple patch for the show, and Legacy is no exception to the rule. Nikki is a little more involved, falling for an MP, who will obviously turn out to be crooked as they always do.
