A bit of a tame send off.
10 October 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

It seems an unusual way to end a series, an origins episode, but that was the decision made. It's probably my least favourite episode of the show, but it's still watchable enough. The first question I asked when I watched this, was now on Earth did Alcock and Gander come to work together, two incredibly different characters, this does at least answer that question. Marigold is the ultimate crooked business woman, she could clearly swindle her way out of anything. She's got her fingers in more pies then she can handle, she's like a female Del Boy, ten years ahead of time.

Such a shame this was the last episode, despite not being a great send off, the series overall is lots of fun, more would have been great.
