This episode seemed a little weaker than the previous instalment; perhaps because the mystery doesn't involve murder rather surprising given that the villagers seem the sort that wouldn't be out of place in 'Midsomer Murders. There are a reasonable number of laughs to be had although some of the humour may be little crude for some viewers although others may find the misunderstandings about how Jonathon injured his hand 'bashing the sauce bottle' rather funny. Over all this wasn't great but it was still enjoyable enough.
I remember this series coming in for a fair bit of flack at the time of its transmission, and I don't remember being bowled over, but upon revisiting, I rather enjoyed it, some good use of humour, well delivered lines, and some good performances, notably the one from Selina Griffiths. Renwick always manages to mix humour and sadness incredibly well, we get the funny opening, which sees Jonathan release the tied up criminals, then we get Polly's recollection of the death of her rabbit as a child, and her creating of the Sandman.
It feels a wee bit padded in the middle I guess, but overall I really enjoyed it. 7/10
