    I think this episode has to be rated as among the best of the Waking the Dead series. It has definitely pulled this whole season up to a high. Interestingly, we haven't really got into any shocking revelations about Mel yet, I guess we'll have to wait for part 2 for her involvement (family connections?) to become really clear. However, this story alone is just amazing - a refugee Jewish Polish family collide with escaped German Nazis. They are murdered by the said Nazis. Seemingly, the Nazis then adopt the Jewish family's identities, only if so, the Cold Case team still haven't worked this out. That's my guess anyway - stolen identities. However, the alleged incest is now confusing me even more. And who oh who is the grandfather in the nursing home - at what part did he enter the story? He seems to be a German scientist, someone who worked in one of the camps...he's not the father of the family, is he?

    The history and culture of the story makes it an extremely interesting one, and it's been very well written. The Mossad member, Sarah, isn't that gripping, she inteferes less than other tag-along characters in the past. Some insight into her motivation could be more interesting in part two. And it's nice to have left Boyd-Grace tension in the background so we can concentrate on the plot this episode. In fact, most of the Cold Case team seem to take background positions. The actual story seems to have taken over the episode, rather than the connected detective work.moreless
