I miss Caroline Quentin. Did she leave under a cloud or something? Creek's line last night about "Carla and the other one" seemed distinctly ungenerous. She and Davies were a great Holmes and Watson act.
I miss Anthony Head too. The guy who took over as the oily magician is- well- just too oily.
Two hours was too long. I mean, that's half an hour longer than a regular, old-style, feature film. The subplot- about Mr Oily and the pneumatic porn actress was very broad-brush- and it was hard to see why it was there except as padding. Creek is fluff- and you don't need fluff to last two hours.
Sheridan Smith is fun. I'd be very happy if Renwick were to write more episodes- and she stayed on board.
