  • Death stalks a TV cookery show, but the investigation sparks a new interest in cooking for Georgina.

    7.5
    The balance between tasteless jokes and good fun has ever been a very difficult one for this show to maintain, and an even keel is not quite kept in this episode, either - there really ought to be more sympathy for the poor, grieving husband, of whom we see very little. But this segment does represent an improvement on earlier shows, partly because of sprightly scripting - the writers have clearly seen the 1978 comedy movie "Who Is Killing The Great Chefs Of Europe?" - but more especially because of the acting. Toby Stephens is outrageously funny as the uncouth, incompetent Jack, whether frantically bluffing about his culinary skills to a pretty girl or attempting idiotically to alarm an unimpressed suspect with a sort of English Inspector Clouseau routine - "You were making a souffle; and you were a sous-chef; and your name is...Sue? [pregnant pause} ...No, forget it..." Miranda Raison is still hampered in her characterization by the show's inability to decide whether she's playing a tough, smart cookie or a head-case, but her coffee-fuelled baking jags, where cookery enthusiasm takes over from workaholic devotion to duty, match Stephens's bogus-tough-guy act in being absurdly entertaining.moreless
