^That comment about about Gatehouse is even more amusing given Gatehouse's comment that "People don't become villains to stroke a white cat."

I agree with everything you say. However


Nevertheless we've been utterly spoiled by the BBC the past couple of months. Long may it continue.

That being said, it's a very minor gripe for me.

Oh absolutely. The line was very shadowy indeed especially with Joseph out of place on one side and a whole division out of place on the other. Rafe Spall was utterly brilliant. Hugo Blick gave him some of the best lines I've heard in a long time in that last episode.

We thought that it was so obvious that it might have been a double bluff.

Like I said, minor gripe though.

Review

The moral we’re left with at the end of the programme - such as it is - is that we don’t live in a world of black and white where things are either good or evil. We all teeter along the line between the two as best we can and only hope we can maintain our balance. Acts of virtue can be punished as easily as bad deeds can be rewarded; love is only as important as loyalty; and neither - indeed nothing - matters as much as being in control.

I agree with all of this, though I didn't see that final twist coming at all. Then again, I relied on the Guardian's excellent liveblog to keep up with a lot of it some weeks!

I demand a Gatehouse spin-off. Rea was simply fantastic, though I agree Eccleston made a late grab for best actor in this. I was sad to see him give up like that. Didn't really care what happened to Gabriel

Perhaps a sequel set twenty years later where Gabriel's son goes all Gatehouse on Gatehouse and co. I'd watch!

Re: BBC Original British Drama

Just caught finale. At times felt series very arch and almost gave up but glad persisted. Somewhere I imagine there's a media studies student feverishly writing essay on white/black, light/dark, surface/depth and religious metaphors. As for final shooting, ballistics anyone? But I'll give that a pass.

Now on to fun that is Luther and looking forward to more of Alice...(I can happily skip over serial killer/kook-of-the-week)

Not quite the level of the beginning of the summer trail but not bad either. Spooks should be taken out back and put out of its misery but the rest is almost exciting!

Re: BBC Original British Drama

Yeah Page 8 looks interesting, and I'll probably watch the Waking the Dead spin-off.

I still adore Spooks so can't wait for that (am I right in thinking this will be the last series?) and of course it goes without saying that I'll be watching Merlin and Who!

Re: BBC Original British Drama

I think this is the last series of Spooks, yeah, but I think that has been said before, too. I'll probably check most out, probably not Spooks though, as I check that out every year and give up a few episodes in anyway.
