    I was really enjoying this excellent drama, but didn't realise there was a 'third' part (30 mins) after the news on the BBC last night (Thanks beeb!) so I missed recording it! Thanks for splitting the program beeb!!!! :mad:

    Does anyone have this last 30 mins I can get hold of??? WMV, DIVX, tape?? Any format would be considered, and somewhere I can download it from.

    Anyone know if the BBC plan to repeat this sometime soon?

    Cheers

    I was utterly peeved with the BBC last night. The night before they showed the first part without the news cutting it in 2.
    Yet last nights dramatic ending they had to cut it in 2 and what’s more they showed what was to come in the last half hour spoiling the suspense of who was to be killed of next. :mad:

    tman if you want to know what happened I will post it for you.

    As for repeats look out on BBC3 and 4.

    You're obviously as p****d off as I am Garrett. To 'break' for the news at such a critical point really breaks the suspense built up over the previous hour. Why not move the news to 10:30 for one night!

    I may get back to you on what happened if I can't get a copy of the last 30 mins.

    You didn't miss much.
    It was an absolutely dreadful, unimaginative, ludicrous ending which spoiled the whole program.
    Saying that, the fact that so many people were murdered right under the nose of so many experienced 'detectives' kind of made the whole story a bit silly...

    If it wasn't bad enough breaking for the news at the end of episode 2, the 'what happens next' bit gave it all away for me so that the third part was a complete let down. The first episode was superb though.

    'what happens next' seems to have replaced 'previously on...' . Catch a couple of trailers though and you don't need to watch the actual programme! - perhaps this is the idea.... Trailer TV for the soundbite generation.

    The Monday night they gave away who was going to be killed last night and they were a suspect.

    Mind you once saw ITV having a picture up with the film name before and after the adverts showing the heroine dieing in the hero’s arms which happened right at the end of the film. The Muppets. :mad:

    I have it on Sky+ but unfortunately have no way of transferring it off. Have you checked suprnova for a torrent?

    I recorded all 3 "splits" on my nebula. This might be a good excuse to get to grips with the new dvd burner I bought!

    Anyone notice the mistake when the solicitor gets stabbed with the poker in the prison riot. The poker is on the left hand side, then when he is in hospital on the trolley the poker has moved to his right hand side.

    Bloody good stuff though!

    Damo :)

    Cheers everyone. I've now managed to get hold of a copy on VHS from someone where I work.

    I'll watch it this evening to see if the ending is a bit of a letdown as others have suggested.
