Killing off and retiring half the cast was rather disturbing. I rather liked the characters and some of the new ones will take time to grow on me. That said it was good to see the nutty Helen hoist by her own petard and I imagine the new line up appeals to a younger audience. It is really good that a fourth season is in the offing given that at least two of the characters are stuck in time and there are a number loose ends to tie up.
The ARC is still under threat from MI5 but Helen sees to that in her own inimitable way, before deciding that the existence of man on earth is a bad thing. As the plot unwinds so does her mind. The "romance" between Hanah Spearitt's character and her would-be suitor does develop but one way adn onother other relationships split up. Not quite a Dr Who beater but well worth watching and far less predictable.
