    I quite liked this episode, there were lots of plot twists and turns, and we got to see some Flack/Angell, which is always good in my book. Loved the end scene with the translator.
    I felt bad for the Chief though, it was the first time I really felt sorry for a victim. he was trying so hard to protect his people and his culture, and he did the right thing in the end only to be murdered for it. Sad.

    On the flipside, I did not love the Oirish theme. Maybe it was in homage to St Patrick's Day or something, but it was pretty terrible. The guy playing Finn Wexford (oh dear, what a name) was Scottish I think, certainly not an Irish accent I've ever heard anyway! And then the chattering in Irish, and Flack knowing the lingo??? Not convinced!
