It's bloody brilliant!! A dark comedy thriller that kept me guessing til the end - loved it!! Quite fancied "Ledge" too. Decent quirky drama on tv at last!!

I've just finished the last episode tonight. Brilliant ending!!

YABU for fancying Ledge. Otherwise, YANBU. It was great tv. 😀

It was really good. Dark, humour, well acted.

Loved it

MrsOlaf78 Sat 19-Mar-16 22:49:17

Bearing in mind Cheby the only men I tend to watch are Mr Bloom and the bloke off the Cillit Bang advert!

Finished watching it today as well I had to google to understand the twist!

Excellent programme

I loved this show too! Ledge was definitely attractive. It reminded me of a British Tucker and Dale Vs Evil.

It was very good. I did figure some of it in episode 2 but not all of it.

Thanks - I've been tempted to watch but haven't so far. I'll give it a go.
Hoping Ledge is attractive, but if you like the Cillet bang guy it doesn't bode well. grin

Hey I didn't say I liked the Cillit Bang guy - that's just who I normally see in tv when Nick Junior is on so I've been starved of eye candy!!

I have questions but don't want to spoil it for anyone who has yet to see it hmm

MrsOlaf78 Sat 19-Mar-16 23:18:46

Oh go on ask!

Patapouf Sat 19-Mar-16 23:20:32

I didn't find it funny at all confused

ButterIsAngelSpunk Sat 19-Mar-16 23:23:19

Well... What was with the Reece Shearsmith character, Wendy? Was he in on it all along? Or was he actually the mastermind all along with the lady (was it Penny?) and Ledge was only led to believe he was going to benefit?

MrsOlaf78 Sat 19-Mar-16 23:34:59

He was the accountant for the financial scheme they were all mixed up in. He and the girl plotted to get rid of them all so he would be the sole beneficiary of the scheme.

Loved it! Definitely recommend.

Re: Wendy there's a shot half way through the last episode where you see the bodies dumped in a hole below ground. The upper body with no legs (who should have been Wendy) was actually a guy from the pub in first episode showing he didn't die and was in it all along.

Yes I did actually spot the guy from the pub with no legs but it didn't click!! Thank you

On the back of this thread I downloaded it. I had seen trailers and, despite really liking Jim Howick, I wasnt that fussed about watching it.

What a revelation! It was fantastic. I thought I had worked it out, then I really DID work it out...and then I got to the end and thought "Eh?!" We got that Wendy wasnt dead, but couldnt work out what was happening when he turned up at the end. I suspected there were 2 or even 3 plots going on, but that took me a second to work it all out grin

Had to put my fingers in my ears when Johnners was finished off though!

Bogeyface Sun 20-Mar-16 20:45:11

One thing that has confused me though, I assume that part of their plot was to implicate Johnners, so why kill him?

If they had left him alive then even he would think it was all down to him, and Wendy and Sophie would get away with it. Wendy would turn up saying he had legged it after the first murder, give Sophie an alibi and job done. By killing Johnners (and leaving a witness in Ian), they cant hope to get away with it surely?

Bogeyface Sun 20-Mar-16 20:50:37

I'm just thinking that by killing Johnners they are flagging up the fact that it wasnt him who masterminded the whole thing, and will implicate Wendy, the only person left alive who will collect on the investment.

And they should have killed Ian as the only witness who knew the whole story. Seems like a gaping hole to me!
