Another gem!
27 January 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Series 9 thus far has been terrific, and Cold River is another brilliant episode, three in a row, let's how The Seagull is a fitting send off to the series.

I loved the story, I loved the dramatic opening scenes, really got me hooked immediately. The story was compelling and deep, I really had no idea what was going to happen, until the end.

Very well produced, slick direction, the scenes aboard the ship looked really good, some terrific characters, Vera's scenes with new mortician Malcolm Donahue were awesome, he has been a fabulous addition, and I hope he stays on. Vera's scenes with the eventual killer were terrific, she has so much gravitas in the role. Elizabeth Berrington and Patrick Baladi were terrific, the show seems to be opting for more high profile actors, possibly.

I would have to question why everyone's solicitors are so quiet, never in the real world would they sit in sheer silence, they do need to address that in the future.
