A bit silly, but I enjoyed it.
30 January 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Sebastian is perturbed when his Japanese tourists are pinched by Harold Hamworthy, an out of work actor, his tour gets serious when a mysterious hand turns up.

Very light and funny, with some amusing lines, don't expect any depth of rounded characters, it's just good fun. It's very over the top, but easy going and fun to watch. Joyner and Benton continue to be a joy to watch. Some of the Russian accents are very funny, arrived clearly from Moscow via Stoke on Trent. If two Russians were to meet, they would not address each other in English!

David Calder is the best thing about the episode, he's a wonderful actor, a little wasted in the part if truth be told, but he's excellent.
