Starts next week grin - I loved the first series, and this time round Peter Capaldi is in it too - now all I have to do is make sure my family and friends know not to phone me on Wednesday nights grin

etoiles, only if freddy didn't die! He looked in a bad way to me, and Gilenti had gone out of control at the end.

And is Freddie dead? Coz he kind of looked dying, but I'm really hoping not. Do we get a series 3? [hopeful]

Oooops... x-post smile

Also - why did Fred go with them? Why didn't he just say 'you won't find her, she's half way to Liverpool St station by now', and send them off on a wild goose chase?

Also - sorry, plot flaw spotting again - if they'd both gone in the cab to the BBC the henchmen still wouldn't have found her, so why did Fred have to go off with them anyway? maybe he panicked when he saw them, I suppose that is a plausible real life explanation.

So they didn't even snog?

For a minute, in her office, they did!
Excuse me, what about camille though?

Brilliant brilliant last episode. Freddy must not die - please. I could spend the whole hour just watching him.

Loved the way they brought all the story lines together with so much tension.

Virtuallyarts he looked like he was dumped outside the front of the BBC, not sure how and who by... was hard to watch the finale I agree, spent half of it with my hands over my eyes.

I really hope there is a third series, I have loved this series, I enjoyed the first but this series really took it up a notch!

I thought the second series was even better than the first. I hope they make another.

Camille and her invisible string of onions et bicyclette vanished - bof! - very conveniently once she realised that Freddie was still in love with Bel. The best thing about Camille was that she didn't turn out to be Lix's long lost French baby.

I wish Bel could be more like Lix. Maybe, if Ben Wishaw gets a better offer from Hollywood Freddie dies, this'll be the life experience that toughens her up, as the Spanish Civil War/the actual war did for Randall and Hector.

Ah, it hadn't even occurred to me that Camille might have been the long lost baby wildfig - I did think after last week that Miss Ramirez might be (I know the nationalities didn't really work out).

I'd missed that it was outside the BBC that Freddy was dumped Tweedle, that would make sense as the gang warning off journalists, though a bit late by then!

I don't know why I'm nitpicking, actually - I really enjoyed this series. Apart from the beating bit. I couldn't watch any of that, which is probably a better indication of how much I'd started to believe in the characters by that point.

I just adore the costumes in this show. I want belles wardrobe and her bottom

I thought Bel and Freddie did get it together? We saw them getting out of the same cab at work the morning after they'd all been at the Paradis, and at one point that day Bel says 'We haven't talked about last night.'

I love Bel's orange midi skirt and blue silk blouse combo.

I quite fancied Tom Burke too.

Just caught up - Freddy was outside the bbc studio they must have dumped him there as a warning.

Loved this series thought it was much better than the first. The whole storyline the vice, crime, racial problems in London - are they going to make another? Hopefully with Freddie.
