For all the 'marchlands' fans - this looks similar. Looking forward to it.

Teeny bit? I thought the ending was a bit naff.

I thought it was sad. I am clearly overthinking this but poor Lucy - her life taken and then unable to rest until they all know the truth.

I really enjoyed it, but the ending was sloppy hmm

Lucy was a touch vengeful at getting Pips attention wasnt she. Her appearances prior dudnt really rally with "getting the truth across"

The ending was awful....what a waste of time watching for past few weeks sad

I liked it that Lucy was looking out for them - stopping Luke going off with his drunk dad for example. That was much better than the idea of her being out for revenge. But did find the end a bit of an anticlimax. And most of the series wasn't spooky enough.

I liked the ending ... but what was the significance of the note Pip wrote to Viv saying "don't tell them even if they torture us?".
Also, I didn't get that Tom would have just lobbed that lighter into the barn like that? Would have been better if he'd just dropped his cigarette while he was drunk. He didn't seem at all malicious until that point!
And I wish they had told us what happened to Eve.
Other than that it was good though!

I thought it was very sad that for all that time Pip thought he was responsible.

Agree Flurp, someone involved in farming wouldn't just through a lighter into a barn full of hay.

I also thought it was sad that Pip had to live with a guilty conscience for 68 years, the scene where both old and young Pip were crying to sleep (episode 3 or 4) as they remember playing hide and seek with Lucy was very touching.

He was the only one who was kind to Lucy after the Dwight fiasco. Poor Lucy lost everything that day, her boyfriend, her best friend, her heart, her virginity, her family but Pip went to get her food and light because he saw that she was so upset. I am glad that Lucy contacted Pip to reveal the truth and I guess that he would have just kept denying her existence if she hadn't used Luke.

It's a shame that we didn't hear more about Eve other than she died in the 70s. I think there was a hint that she and Harry may have ahem spent quality time together before he went to war.

Did Lucy's ghost kill the American airman, then?

And what was happening when little Vivienne saw Lucy in the barn when the fire was getting going, Lucy asked her for help, and she just walked away trilling 'All things bright and beautiful'. Little brat! maybe she deserved to be haunted after all. Or did that not really happen? confused

But I agree, ending was a let down. Not a patch on 'Marchlands'.

It did appear that Lucy killed the airman.

Yes, I wondered if that actually happened with Viv or if she was trying to remember and she was just presuming she walked off until the memory came back correctly. Evil brat if she did.

I thought that the airman was so busy thinking about Lucy that he wasn't really concentrating & then the sun momentarily blinded him.

Sad that it was Tom-& I thought that it was going to be an accidentally dropped cigarette.

And Viv-just walking away?

I didn't really get that tbh-surely that made her as much to blame as Tom?

But perhaps as she was only a child, Lucy didn't blame her?

Maybe a point was also that they would stop argiung about Luke and that that rift would be healed & the family wouldn't be torn apart by the death of Luke's mum as it had by Lucy's death?

When Barry and Lorna got a copy of the book about lightfields, which was written by Vivien's daughter Clare, I thought it said it was written in memory of her mum?

NadiaWadia Fri 29-Mar-13 01:11:30

No I think it said something like "for my mother Vivienne and for Lucy Felwood'. IIRC? Of course, we were meant to presume she was dead.

Did Lukes granny in the modern section play Stella the barmy bride who married Phil Mitchell then chucked herself off the roof?
