After four years, the dastardly divine odd couple of angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and demon Crowley (David Tennant) return to earth with an epic adventure. But their mission is far more sinister than they realised, as they are now being hunted down by supernatural terrorists who want to turn the world into an epic fantasy game.
TV3’s red-hot Irish series has suffered a rocky start to its run but it looks like it might have turned the corner. It was originally commissioned to fill the void left by the departure of Coronation Street to UTV Ireland but it has grown into something far more than that. It’s fast-paced, sometimes tense and, yes, there are soap elements to it too but it really is one of the most entertaining series you will see this year.
When Garda Sharon Cleere scans CCTV footage of Darren Kiely’s death she discovers Brian McGonigle kissing an underage girl. She reveals the discovery to her partner Paudge Brennan but he tells her to forget it. Despite this, she continues to investigate, aided by the fact that the killers are still at large.
Meanwhile, Brian returns to town with a plan that includes blackmailing Rachel, persuading her to retract her witness statement and besmirching Sharon’s name. His scheme begins to unravel when his wife Jules works out she’s being lied to and kicks him out the day before his trial starts. Also, Conor continues to wean himself off heroin and is struggling with the withdrawal symptoms.
