Storyline

Reunited with Spike and her dying husband Rhonda, along with Leanne, Gaines and Scotty, is flown to England and the bunker, where she lets fly at her mother, Sutton, for faking her death, leading her children to be fostered. Paula and Dave, just married with Celine in attendance, rescue Jamie, thanks to Frankie's psychic powers, and save Layla, the whole group also arriving at the bunker. However a rock has jammed the door and somebody must drive a truck at it to free it. The trouble is that they will be sacrificing themselves to save the others. And Ariel may not be far behind...

The End of the World
29 January 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

It is the end of the world and everyone is on their way to the bunker to join the loony matriarch who is more interested in their blood than having a family reunion. Even General Gaines changes his mind and persuades Scotty that it is better to live.

However the path to the bunker in Slough while the comet is about to strike is not a smooth one. Ariel is still the fly in the ointment, out to get Jamie. There are obstacles in the path and with bridges collapsed the River Thames. As Jamie's birth mother said, he is the son of god and pretty soon Jamie manages to part the river Thames.

The ending might be a cheat with the vault door being jammed and Ariel hovering about. The big mistake was really the series should had conveniently been wrapped up. This black comedy is very British despite the international cast but it never really soared.
