Trouble with nanotechnology
2 December 2018 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

This episode sees Stark test Fargo's latest invention; a device that lets the user connect directly with a computer. Before it can properly operate it has to analyse Stark's emotional responses. At the same time as this is being done Lowjack, the town's stray dog that has been hit by a car, is taken to Taggart for treatment. He uses nonobots but then fails secure the container and the remaining nanobots escape into the computer system where they attack a maintenance worker. Carter is called in to find him but soon discovers there is much more of a problem after they interact with Stark with surprising results.

I thought this episode was rather fun as it provided tension, humour and even an element of romance. I doubt anybody will be surprised when the two stories end up linked but what happens when they do connect was nothing like I suspected. The scenes where Carter and Taggart enter the shafts around the computer are pretty tense, especially for anybody with a degree of claustrophobia. There are a few decent laughs; Taggart is always pretty funny. The special effects are impressive; particularly towards the end as the nanobots are dealt with. Overall a fun episode which had a good story and provided character development.
