It wasn’t anything like what we expected, and even less what we predicted, but with Series 12 now behind us we reflect on the wild ten-week ride we just experienced.
Diving in with more unanswered questions than we thought was physically safe to carry, we throw caution to the wind and absorb the finale of the twelfth modern season.
Bracing ourselves for a tumbling, screeching, the-brakes-are-out ride into the final story arc of the season, we’re given even more questions to add to the existing pile, with little time left for answers.
Hot on the heels of a wild series opening salvo, we knew we’d have a change of pace going into the third episode. The building blocks of a great story are there, but we’re not sold on the execution.
Chris Chibnall doubles down on the intensity for the conclusion of his Series 12 opening story, and it definitely takes its toll on us as viewers. Some things thrill, others shock, and if we’re being completely honest, some things outright offend.
