Spoilerless Ashes

May 21st, 2010 (10:10 pm)

An extremely accomplished ending to Ashes to Ashes, which also impressed my family who hadn't seen an episode. Predictable in the sense that most of the elements had crossed my mind during this series, but there were lots of others too which turned out not to make themselves manifest. We've come a long way from a 1973 rooftop, and further than the authors at first intended, but we and they have been the better for it.

Agreed - I was very gratified that I was thinking along the right lines, though I didn't think they'd have the guts to actually pull it off! I still want to know whether the shadowy figure with the suspiciously Sam-Tyler-shaped head was John Simm or someone else.

He was a good Simmalike, whoever he was.

I'd wondered since the first episode of Ashes whether the other regulars were in the same boat as Alex/Sam, and now we know that they were, or rather Alex has been in the same boat since she returned to Gene's world at the start of this series.
