    This episode was so schmaltzy, I couldn't help but think the unthinkable midway, "Oh, just hurry up and die already!" It all just seemed like a 'will they, won't they renew their contracts' subtext throughout. Then again, maybe I was just in a bad mood because the video kept freezing--and no my broadband and computer are performing well, so it's just another Demand 5 technical problem. And yes, I clicked the 'Report a problem with this video' link.

    What a load of sentimental rubbish, I thought this was crime scene investigation not a soap opera. This series has gone really downhill since Stella left.

    I can't see why it would make you cry. It wasn't that sad. It was a bit odd really. Made me think that there weren't sure if there was another series or not - like the end of the last series. Preferred the one based on Hitchcock a couple of seasons back to be honest.
