    Good Lord! Lovejoy is at the top of his form here. Swimming in Venetian canals, bedding wenches, battling wits and dodging bullets, such a lovable rogue indeed! But it's not what happens, per se, it's HOW it happens... and the lingering gaze of the camera over the sweet scenery intoxicates one. Shot in what appears to be 100% natural light, the darkness envelopes the viewer and transports her/him to the location by some mystic means. The acting may be uneven, however, where it counts - it kills! This is a rich, deep, and lovely episode that deserves it's rightful place near the top of a great series! All that to say, cracking good stuff: Ian(s)!!
