  • A tower block demolition is the highlight in this Sally centred story.

    Well, this episode was well advertised on The Bill website, YouTube and the TV listings magazines for the footage of the tower block demolition.

    A woman disrupts and halts and demolition claiming her son is still in the building. When nothing is found, she later claims a diary containing details of her abue at the hands of an Uncle from years before is still hidden in one of the flats. The only problem being that she doesn't know which one. The episode works well for the most part as you don't know whether the accusations are true of a figment of her imagination - she has already lied, is she now?

    The highlight of the episode is when the tower block comes down. Excellantly filmed with P.C. Ben Gayle taking a couple of youths away, with the building falling down in the background, the scene only suffers when they try to recreate it close up with P.C. Sally Armstrong and Sian under the rubble - for me, it didn't seem quite right. Also i was surprised by the fact the demolition provided the cliffhanger for an advert break instead of the episode, after the adverts, we return to the station and Sally and Sian are right as rain with no indication of them being traumatised from having a tower block fall on them.

    Also, Insp. Gina Gold's lack of ability to formally reprimand Sally is also annoying, she's done something similar before, surely she should be punished?

    Nitpicking aside, the episode reachs is conclusion well and leads us into the cliffhanger for the next episode, that while is good, is not in the same league as the demolition.moreless
