The varying degrees of right and wrong quite often bleed in to each other like a sauce splitting in the pan, you can see where the line is drawn, the thin blue marker but quite often we all over step it and find only the act of redemption comes to save us when we do one good thing despite of deep we have gone.

No matter where you put a man, in a cell or out of harm’s way, the Victorian thinking was they would all eventually revert to a type, that each person could not escape their basic human trait. Good or evil, eventually your character would show and for those caught between the two, being in your guard was not enough.

Ripper Street: A Brittle Thread. Television Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10

Cast: Matthew Macfadyen, Adam Rothenberg, MyAnna Buring, Killian Scott, Benjamin O’ Mahony, Joseph Mawle, Jonas Armstrong, Lydia Wilson, Anna Burnett, Matthew Lewis, Ian Pirie, Ellie Haddington.

Society hangs by A Brittle Thread and when it is pulled the whole fabric that has been built up, cherished by some, loathed by others, indifferent to many to whose lives are just about the right side of desperate, when that thread is pulled, it can come crashing down. Since the days that Queen Victoria first sat on her throne, many have tried to pull that strand, some have been part of the so called elite or the institution themselves but somehow it remains, for now, intact; threadbare, wearing thin and scraggy but nonetheless still intact.

To understand the present, you have to know what happened before, you have to know the story of how a person got to the position in life they inhabit on the day you met them, after that their life makes sense, it has significance.

The Musketeers: Amilie, Series Two: Episode Four. Television Review.

Religion and politics, never easy bed fellows at the best of times, when the delicate balance hangs on the word of a young woman, that strange set of bed fellows becomes a dicey, almost inflammatory affair, which if left unchecked; could spell disaster for French-Spanish relations and have long consequences for the whole of Europe.

Foyle’s War, Elise. Television Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Michael Kitchen, Honeysuckle Weeks, Ellie Haddington, Rupert Vansittart, Tim McMullan, Daniel Weyman, Leo Gregory, Jesse Fox, Colin Connor, Simon Hepworth, Conleth Hill, David Ericsson, Julian Lewis Jones, Ronnie Fox, Henry Garrett.

All good things come to an end, some with a blast and some with an understated whimper. For Foyle’s War to contain both is quite possibly the single most maddening reason for this very successful police drama to finally come to its closure.

Christopher Foyle’s war is never ending and post war Britain must be thankful that there was at least one honest man around who was willing to go up against so called authority in which to get to the absolute truth.

Despite being a policeman of the highest impeccable order there are some things that do irritate and upset Christopher Foyle, having to deal with a high ranking Nazi in the care of MI5 would probably rank near the top of his list, just one below being made to look like an aged dinosaur who doesn’t embrace the new world by being lied to by his superiors.
