Some of the best acting in one series episode i have ever seen
30 March 2019 | by phil-136See all my reviews

I have been enjoying this fabulous series but this episode I feel from the 2 children dealing with the news of there mothers murder to the old man and his misunderstood son, This episode has some of the best acting in one series episode I have ever seen on any Tv episode in my life and i am 64. Just wonderful natural performances all around.

The episode is also so full of twists and turns that it should keep most mystery viewers thinking throughout. congratulations to all the production involved in this TV masterpiece. well done.

I would of given it a 10 but for the couple of continuity and editing errors. so please try to sync reverse shots of people talking when you can clearly see the jaw movement is not the dialogue we are hearing and Vera arriving in her jeep at the school when her fellow officer took the jeep as she was about to drive there. so she was driving a vehicle that was impossible for her to be driving.
