The beauty of an ensemble police drama is that it spreads the jeopardy; hence another member of A Unit goes down this week, soon after Viggo returns from his uncomfortably personal brush with Christian iconography. But they can’t hunt down this particular killer alone: a tramp, a dodgy barman and a jazz buff provide critical breakthroughs as the clock ticks and another fat cat’s life is endangered.
The assassin’s motives prove disappointingly prosaic, and each member of the team is only lightly sketched out. Yet the touching conclusion packs a surprisingly hefty punch and, if tonight doesn’t quite deliver on the promise of last week’s opener, it’s still an above average crime thriller with a pleasingly wry sense of humour. It’ll be worth sticking with over the next eight episodes, if only to see what the deal is with that office cleaner…
One of London's many escape games on offer, following the same sort of vibe: there's a theme, you form a team and use your mind to get out of a locked room. At this east London game a group (minimum two, max five) of you are invited into the mind of a 'white collar criminal' to search his thoughts for a secret code. It sounds a little 'Black Mirror' esque, but hopefully you'll do better than John Ham and won't get trapped. Within 60 minutes participants will be faced with puzzles, challenges and mysteries, which all need to be solved in order to escape in time.
