  • Cudos for dealing with the subject of women's abuse, but the silly ending brought the episode down a bit.

    The show started out well with Hetty getting an award as Woman of the Year. When Hetty took a tumble down the stairs, it gave Hetty the excuse to be able to fit in with the other women at a women's safe house who have been abused. While on the one hand I really like that "Hetty Wainthropp Investigates" tackled the subject of women's abuse, the program toward the end got kind of silly. A gang of motorcycle riders attacked the women's safe house. The women threw all kinds of material, like coal, garbage, and dirty diapers, out the window to get rid of the men who are trying to ram the door in. Up until that point the subject was dealt with well. The main characters as always gave a good performance.moreless
