In the Flesh Series 2 Episode 5 Review

Even if next week’s finale of In the Flesh turns out to be terrible, this fifth instalment in the second series pretty much justifies the extended episode order all by itself. Packed full of everything that makes this show so special in the first place, episode five gives us backstory, character development, plenty of near-deaths and a great lead-in to next week’s final episode.

Maxine might be the designated villain of series two, but the best new addition by far has been Simon, who this week finally gets a storyline of his own, albeit in flashback. Sometimes this approach can backfire for shows but here, with the reveal of his importance to the public PDS approach and subsequent rejection from his family nicely paralleling with Kieron’s own journey, it works brilliantly.
