A real change up in pace and tone.
5 December 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The Killer makes their move, coming out of the shadows, meanwhile those investigating learn some nasty truths about their foe.

This was slow to start, and a little pedestrian, but finally it springs to life, with some real action, and a vibe which genuinely makes me think of classic Doctor Who. The tone and atmosphere darkened as the do progressed, with us witnessing first hand the power and ferocity of the being.

The one thing that makes me laugh, James Cosmo looks no different in 2019 to here in 1981.

We even get a dramatic cliffhanger, this part was great. 8/10
