review by
Mike Haberfelner

With the Linen Man (Clarke Peters) having torn the Rip wide open with the help of Sherlock (Henry Lloyd-Hughes), chaos erupts all over London, but fortunately, Watson (Royce Pierreson) and the Irregulars - Bea (Thaddea Graham), Spike (McKell David), Billy (Jojo Macari), Leopold (Harrison Osterfield) and empath Jessie (Darci Shaw) - are in hot pursuit. But then while trying to track the Linen Man through some tunnles, a cave-in cuts the boys off from the girls and Watson, and while the former have to return home having achieved little, Jessie soon catches up with the Linen Man, and in a battle of wits manages to enter his mind and confront him with every death that he has caused, who are quite a few, which ultimately scares him enough to fall into a pit to his death. However, the Rip is still opening, and it seems Sherlock is very much in favour of this - as eventually the Rip reveals Sherlock's true love Alice (Eileen O'Higgins), Bea and Jessie's long dead mother, who sees this as a great opportunity to be reunited with her love and daughters - even if our world will be destroyed by the world on the other side of the Rip, Purgatory. And Alice even convinces Bea of her cause, only Jessie sees that it will bring only death and destruction, so she goes into Bea's mind and convinces her that this world, despite having treated them poorly, deserves a chance - and Alice fades, the Rip closes, and Sherlock leaps into it pretty much the last moment to be with Alice ...


An ok finale to a rather uneven series that strains the theme of the lost mother a bit too much and also apart from that isn't at all free of clichés, but seems more coherent and less random than earlier episodes, and it really ties up most loose ends, too. Nothing great, but a sort of satisfying conclusion at least.
