After last week's episode, which was probably the best piece of TV we have seen all year, we have finally reached the finale of series two of Ashes to Ashes. Was it worth the wait? Oh yes, indeed, but before I rush headlong into just how good the episode was, it's worth a little recap as to how we got here.
With Alex on the verge of returning to the ‘real world' and the future (or present version, depending on how you look at it) Summers goading her to become part of ‘Operation Rose', she is in a dilemma. If she wants to return home and see her daughter Molly again she must become the thing she hates, a corrupt police officer. With this thought we find that she has been recording her issues down on tape, and while this is incriminating (and a bit of a bolt-on plot device) it all seems very much in character with somebody who has to analyse everything.
