Been looking in vain since the final version went out on Monday for a
review that explains the scene with the apparently boobytrapped car.

The whole series was a waste of time, and full of plot holes. It's 6
hours of my life, I'll never get back


You can waste another 12 hours or so on "I Know Who You Are" (BBC4,
Saturday nights). At least you won't have to turn the subtitles on to
understand what they are saying.


Is that bad as well?

I am recoding it to watch in one block as I am on holiday when the final
eps are shown


Needlessly complicated and implausible plot with too many characters.
We're supposed to care whether the main character has lost his memory.
Oh, and one of the main characters has a secret twin in a clinic.

I give up, give me a series where things happen that one does not have to
assume.
I'm glad I never started to watch it. If it was broadcast with AD, maybe
there were some clues for you in that?


Meanwhile bring back the Avengers.

the bomb squad moved in to defuse it (god knows how they did that
unseen)


Perhaps the bomb had been planted unseen earlier, and the guy who
came across the road from a parked car was the one who defused it?

(If so, how did the Banville/police gang know about the bomb?)


they *knew* that she was going to be targeted in a way that could easily
be blamed on the Arab terrorist group

Seems the most obvious conclusion that they would plant a bomb, it is the
Arab's weapon of choice

You can't mean series 2 and 3?

That jumped all over the place with loads of gaps in the storyline that you
had to guess what had happened.

It could have been that they had been edited out bits to fit in the adverts,
but as it was originally an ITV series it already had some space for that.

It seems to me that they flow quite well. I loved the thinly veiled poking
fun at the establishment peopled by weird eccentrics. Wonderfully daft.


I'm not a great fan of the ones they are showing as they seem to have
restored the sound so it actually sounds worse than it was.
They have used some kind of noise gate.
