ASHES TO ASHES
★★★ This series is complete tosh. But tonight, at least, it’s action-packed tosh. Alex Drake’s agony continues as she seeks answers to questions she does not understand. What’s real, what’s not? Gene Hunt is real enough: he shows his softer side by beating the stuffing out of a prisoner. A central character comes to a sticky end, which is a convenient way of covering up his misdeeds.
