    Have really enjoyed your podcasts, many thanks. Have loved the whole tv series, so many little pleasures which outweigh any expectations not quite met. Love the fact that Jackson drives a Yellow Car! That’s an ongoing in-joke by Mick Herron thru the books, referring to a BBC radio comedy show called Cabin Pressure, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Also, anyone noticed Spider Webb’s jacket when he’s with Nick Duffy to collect Catherine? Leather, belted, for all the world like a Nazi Officer! And with that blond teutonic hairstyle… Louisa isn’t MY Louisa, though she’s excellent and has a great voice. In fact, from the teaser at the end of the finale, the person who seems to be playing Shirley Dander is much more my Louisa. Can’t quite get a handle on who should play Shirley, but the series is so good I don’t want to nit-pick. And the small additions to the plot enhance it, give it a more dramatic twist for a tv audience. We’ll done everybody!
