  • Superb series of episodes.

    The four part series of episodes for Christmas are the best I have seen from The Bill for a long time. Everything was first rate, a tight, fast moving story, superb characterisation, intriguing insights into characters that you thought you knew well. The casting was perfect, using Stuart and Stevie as the central characters was inspired, for everything you thought you knew about them both was turned on its head in the undercover episodes. The tension was perfect, the villain suitably slimy, the bad boy suitably appealing and the locations apt. My only gripe was that it wasn't quite long enough, would have liked to have seen a closing scene between Stuart and Stevie after everything that both of them had been put through.



    I've been watching The Bill for a very long time, since "Woodentop" and over the years, especially the years where every other police officer seemed to be a loopy fruitcake or a deranged psychopath and serial killer, I had come to the conclusion that TB had finally jumped the shark. However, under new top brass, it turned the corner, and over these four episodes proved conclusively that TB has got its mojo back. We know that these four eps will be quite a tough act to follow, but more of the same would be great. Even if flashback is a slightly cheesy device, if you can do it to this quality, more of the same please!moreless
