I'm not afforded time for a proper review, alas, I haven't had time to watch again, so this will probably only make sense to me. *cackle*

• Alex's look is now more of a 'proper' 1982 look as opposed to the 80s parody as per the first series. And a few of my cousins did actually have a flicked up haircut like Shaz back in the day! Mind you, we'll say nothing about the fact that I had a top just like Alex's (that purple/blue knitted thing), albeit not in 1982. :-D

• Mrs McClusky, references to Tucker Jenkins and the ending of classic Grange Hill FTW!

• 'Supermac' is certainly not all that he seems. I do believe it was him in the abduction/coma scene...shades of Harry Woolf in Life On Mars only darker.

• Gene with the dying girl was so sweet. The fact that she was from Hyde-anything to read into that? Possible link to Sam Tyler? Or perhaps I'm over-analysing.

• The Diana references and 'Pont de L'Alma'. And even the references to Princess Margaret and her being in Soho at that particular time?! *cackle* What's that all about? Although, no doubt, all will be revealed!

• Chris's 'full monty' was hilarious. 'Refreshingly postmodern' indeed! :-D

• However, the fact that Dean Andrews is hinting that the ending is going to be a shocker (and based on a few articles I've skimmed through this morning)...is it actually Gene that's going to be in the coma and not Alex?!

Tune in again next week...I can't wait!

Maybe, but even if this was in Soho, Gene is still the Manc Lion.

Also, I did notice mention of "the former Mrs Hunt" this week...

Hmmm...will we get to see her? I can't find any spoilers. I can just envisage comedic slanging matches, and a flicker of jealousy on Alex's part!
