Some fans clearly hoped for a humdinger final season - Dexter pitted against a serial killer spectacularly to eclipse all those encountered before.

Instead all is far more subdued, far more personal. Sister Debra is alarmingly in free fall after recent events, Dexter desperately striving to bring her back to normality. Now, more than ever, he wishes to settle, to be a good father to little Harrison (who hopefully has not inherited certain tendencies).

Newcomer Dr. Evelyn Vogel (Charlotte Rampling) has an important part to play. She had been close to Dexter's father Harry and helped him to perfect the growing lad's homicidal leanings (she surely thus not an asset to her profession). Psychopaths are her specialty - she now seemingly targeted by a former patient, she sent part of his victims' brains. Here is one Dexter badly needs to destroy, before he himself can embark on conventional family life.

Throughout its eight seasons, Michael C. Hall has been instrumental in causing so much to work well. Viewers could warm to his Dexter, he surely doing the world a favour dispatching major villains who had escaped justice. He, though, becomes his greatest critic - such a lifestyle bringing nothing but grief for those he holds most dear. Out of regard for them, should he not now head for a final kill - himself?

Early seasons were great, but the series wobbled - arguably its lowest spot Season 6 where so much was ludicrous. Adverse reviews caused me for long to steer clear of the final season, but temptation proved too great. Thank goodness I succumbed, this comparatively low key finale refreshing after certain earlier excesses.

(Twelve episodes. Modest bonuses include short features on how siblings Dexter and Debra evolved, we reminded of flamboyant serial killers dealt with en route.)

Okay, but falls very short of the excellent early seasons. The Debra Morgan off the rails storyline drags on for way too many episodes. I guess Jennifer Carpenter doing her drunken/remorseful/angry act was her last ditch attempt at winning herself an Emmy. I'm not denigrating her acting ability as she is a very fine performer. I just found it a bit draining and then boring after about two episodes.

Not close to the best of this series and not always totally logical. But Dexter has been one of the great series and Michael C Hall gives an outstanding central performance. So you have to watch it to the ending which has caused controversy. I quite liked it.

I have watched dexter from the begining and love this show. The reason for 3 stars? They could have done so much better with the ending, and gave the dark defender the send off that he fully deserved. A disappointing ending to a great show, still worth a watch though

A fitting end to a consistently excellent series and ending while the quality is still so high.
