    After last episode's promising signs we are now treated to the mandatory silly episode where all sorts of unlikely things happen.The only thing saving this episode is the return to Portwenn of Al Large & some modest progress in Martin & Louisa's relationship.Even the laughs are few & far between!



    However,the Joan Norton/Edward Melville storyline,as fanciful as it might appear,does address the Oedipus Complex & the feeling of redunancy older folk sometimes feel when their health starts to get in the way of living a full & meaningful life.



    The unsubtle overtures of the recently divorced Carrie Wilson was painful to watch & she was treated with the contempt her performance warranted but in the Martin/Louisa story arc scheme of things it did serve to give our reluctant lovebirds the motivation they needed.



    It was good to see Al again & it will be interesting to see if anything finally manifests itself between him & Pauline.Time will tell.moreless
