The End  

So. Last episode of Ashes to Ashes tonight. I have basically let the whole of series 3 wash over me because I was getting more confused by the week, but I did enjoy reading other people's whacky theories. I must say I was pretty amazed at how much of it turned out to be correct.

I wasn't sure about how it started off tonight, but then it picked up and turned into a great finale. The only thing I didn't like was that after all the carrot-dangling of the past weeks we didn't even get a glimpse of Sam. So in order to right that wrong, here is a lovely piccy:

The truth will be revealed? I found it clear as mud.

Considering the total weirdness that was series 3, I am actually surprised at how neatly they tied it up. Not everything is explained, but enough to be satisfying for me.

Have you been following the theories? They really helped me with understanding and appreciating the finale.

I didn't follow any theories in advance but have just read this, which pretty much confirms my thoughts. You have to agree about the density of it. And Yay! In episode 7 when Ray hears music I said to myself, 'I knew right from the start that Jamaican barman was something special.' 10/10 for continuity between the series, there. I'm glad you decided to watch the first two series!

Thanks for the link!

I take it you mean Life on Mars? Because early into the second series of Ashes I quickly watched series 1 to get up to speed.

I am SO happy that series 3 more or less forced me to buy Life on Mars. I'm in the middle of my third viewing in three weeks and I just can't get over its wonderfulness (is that even a word). Best British drama series since The Singing Detective, IMO. Yes, I know you don't care for TSD, but I can actually see a lot of similarities between the two (subject for another post). Not in the least the fact that I didn't want to watch either of them at first, due to perceived sexism/machismo. How wrong I was to let my principles get in the way of a great television experience! :D

10/10 for continuity between the series, there.

After finishing LoM I am looking forward to going through the whole of A2A again. I've only seen it once and my recollection of series 1 and 2 is a bit fuzzy. I am sure the writers have done a brilliant job!
