Series 1 - Episode 6

Review

After tonight’s thrilling instalment you may be left wondering which of the major protagonists are NOT actually related to each other. And while the web of coincidences could leave you gasping at times, there seems, with 18 days until the comet lands, a more plausible sense of a world facing imminent destruction than hitherto as we witness greater panic and ennui to go with all the abandoned streets, schools and banks.

And despite being introduced to a fabulously deranged Diana Rigg, this is also perhaps the most emotional and moving episode in a very strong series. Pauline Quirke in particular comes into her own as the wonderful Paula, who defends her son Jamie (Mat Baynton) like a cornered tigress.

Summary

Scotty tries to make amends for his recent decisions, while Jamie's life receives another shake-up, following a sudden tragedy. Diana Rigg guest stars.
