The first story was the most well rounded, offering us a bit of everything. The second was more comedy tinged. The third was action filled. Being set in a courtroom this one is obviously more dialogue driven for the most part. As usual Jago's disguise and impersonation of a lawyer is a great source of humour, a more diverse cast than the previous offerings, with a more relaxed pace that eventually builds up to something more exciting. Ellie and Sergeant Quick are given more to do in this than they have had all series, which is nice. This is a fine conclusion to a very consistent series, and I look forward to hearing the next.

Litefoot is arrested for the murder of Jago. The idea for the plot was an intriguing one, but in the first half they strained credulity far too much. It seemed like they were concerned about laying the groundwork for the premise of Series 7 (which is very intriguing) that they cut a lot of corners to get there. At 53 minutes, the story could have benefited from being a bit longer to fill in the gaps of logic.

However, the last twenty minutes has the story back on track with our heroes having a thrilling climatic battle with the Colonel, who has an utterly insane plan to bring down the empire. Overall a decent conclusion to Series 6, which did a good job re-establishing Jago & Litefoot in the Victorian era.

This episode takes place as a direct consequences of the previous part, so you have to have listened to the third part of box set 6 for this to work. It takes the premises of Litefoot on trial and Jago in full theatrical make-up taking on the responsibility of his defence this is somewhat a wonderful set-up. Needless to say Jago with incomparable disregard for his own self worth tries his utmost for Litefoot. There are some classic lines in the episode, however the twist at the end with what the Colonel as set, is something that catches out the two at the last turn.

This was a superb ending to this box set, I think the strongest episode of all 4. We shall see what happens in Series 6 as to whether Jago and Litefoot get back on the right side of the law.

Corks! This is a triumph! Even an excellent episode of estimable entertainment!

The trial of George Litefoot rounds out the series brilliantly. I found I was missing Ellie and Quick in the first two parts, but once again they have risen up to be major characters here. Jago has some brilliant moments while Litefoot goes from insightful scientist to deadpan depressed and back again. Once again it is a triumph for Jago as he puts his theatre skills to use.

Well written, well directed, well acted, great end of the series, great cliff hanger for next season.

One might say I actually quite enjoyed this one. Very well done. Congratulations are in order.
