The only downside is that Caroline Quentin doesn't seem to have the same gusto and enthusiasm as Maddie that she showed in the first two series. She was replaced for season 4 (by Julia Sawalha of Ab Fab), so perhaps she'd just found that she had no more to bring to the part. She's professional enough, but the outrageous chutzpah is missing.
Never mind, the show is still well worth watching. I'm not sure whether a new series is planned, but there have been several one-off specials, including one this past Christmas, and hopefully the BBC will release those in due course.
In the meantime, there are reports that the title character is being resurrected for a new series in 2009, without Maggie. If that's a success, maybe the BBC will get Season 4 out sooner!
A dinner party goes completely south in "The Curious Tale of Mr Spearfish" when a man claims to have signed a pact with the devil, which he credits for his newfound fame and luck. But even after a man trying to shoot him drops dead, Maddie and Jonathan suspect there's a more mundane explanation for what's happening.
And in "The Eyes of Tiresias," an old lady is having dreams of future murders that have a nasty habit of coming true. In "The Omega Man," Maddy is contacted by an extraterrestrial expert to take a look at an alien skeleton... only to have the US army (wha?) charge in and take it. The problem is, as soon as they unload it again, it's vanished into thin air. So guess who they drag in to help.
"Ghosts Forge" becomes a problem when an ex-coworker of Maddy's wants them to investigate a very old murder at a creaky old manor house. Then there's a "Miracle in Crooked Lane," when an ex-glamour model is almost killed in an explosion... and is seen several hours later on her way to church. Is it a true miracle, or does Jonathan have a more earthly answer?
And it all ends on a gruesome note with "The Three Gamblers," in which the police find a drug dealer who was bludgeoned and shot to death has somehow crawled up a flight of stairs... AFTER he died. His killer is literally going insane with fear, and a drug cartel is causing trouble.Read more ›
