Ahh, that was sweet. And it’d be churlish for me to pick holes in the Christmas episode, so I won’t. Much. Let’s hope Nicholas turns up some more, and that he won’t have to suffer more health issues. I’d even thought about model Mallard trains a couple of days before.
There’s one good thing about it being Christmas. We know it has to end well for most, but a token corpse or two. Although Bishop’s marital problems don’t seem to be going the way I’d have expected. Perhaps they feel her being married is a burden, so Jake has to be got rid of?
It was nice of them to give Ducky an outing of his own, despite the improbability of so much happening to the team members. I suppose they realise they have officially made their ME over 70 now? Less than David McCallum’s age, but don’t they have to retire?
And I’m feeling so Christmassy I will let the state of Ducky’s father’s home alone, as I will the London streets, the double decker bus and the luxurious looking hospital corridor.
Was intrigued about seeing Angus Clarke again. I do understand them wanting to have him and the young Ducky, because they are just so Napoleon Solo and Ilya Kuryakin. But last time we were told they never saw each other again. (Which is no worse than the discrepancies between Gibbs and Fornell then and now.)
Let’s hope this was a Christmas episode of goodwill that will last longer than just Christmas. A bit like the new puppy that is for life.
