    The last in the series brings all participants from the previous 5 episodes and places them in a room. A big sign on the wall points to the cash in the sealed off next room and asks them to score 100 points in 30 minutes to win it. They move something random onto one of the coloured spots on the floor and the points counter goes up. Only thing is unbeknownst to them they could win a larger sum of money if they just look up and read the other message! Oh, yeah and the score is actually controlled by a man watching a fish pass the centre line in it's tank. In other words it's completely unconnected to anything the participants are doing. Meanwhile Derren does two more experiments - one to do with lottery numbers and one to do with a very superstitious woman.



    Being the last of the series they had to give us something different and this does the trick not only by making monkeys of the participants and not letting fully on but by giving variety. The other shows just concentrated on the trick or the treat at hand, this reached out for a little more scope and therefore made it more entertaining. It's always fun to see a actor (this time David Tennant) make a fool of themselves as well. Although what he initially does to the superstitious woman can be considered slightly cruel I was happy that he gave a positive end to her experience. So a good end of series and I can't wait to see what he does next.moreless
