The remaining original cast members were as wonderful as always, but the loss of Brendan Coyle to Downtown Abbey really took its toll. As with many series that have to wrap up story lines well before hoped, the pace of the final two episodes were out of sync with the previous seasons. I do have to say that the cricket episode with Margaret was poignant and delightfully resolved. Definitely my favourite of all four seasons. Thank goodness for Claudie Blakely, Karl Johnson, and Linda Bassett whose consistently superb performances carried the show.
