  • 1957: Christmas nears, but Kiki Delaine has disappeared, Freddie makes an alarming discovery about Stern and Cilenti gets threatening.

    7.0
    One's hopes that people had taken to heart the rather strong criticisms voiced about Season One's errors of period detail are dashed in this episode - Commander Stern (whose first name is Laurence!) uses the word "invite" as a noun, something not common in Britain until the 1990s, whilst Hector talks about "the permissive society", a phrase coined a decade later than 1957. Also, Bel listens to a news broadcast that sounds like Bob Danvers-Walker narrating a Pathe newsreel rather than the clear received pronunciation of a BBC newsreader. However, the plot is undeniably hotting up, and the revelations concerning the mysterious relationship between Lix and Randall Brown (who's clearly not as cold-blooded as we supposed, to put it mildly) seems likely to get even more interesting soon.moreless
