Effortlessly blending the return of much-loved characters with startling new ones, and beautifully setting up a new intrigue, this episode of Psychoville was everything a fan could have hoped for. The creativity and dark, twisted humour of the writing was never in doubt, but special mention here needs to go to the actors. Who knew that Dawn French was going to manage to make Joyce even MORE creepy? And Stacy Liu, the actress who plays Jennifer, was just amazing. To convey so much through the very tiniest of movements of just a hand, and the stillness of her face... There's some skill there, especially in a show where most of the characters are so gloriously over the top.
There were several laugh out loud moments too - "perforated..." "no, it's just mellow birds, do you want some?" was my favourite - but they did not detract from the drama or intrigue.
Not NOW, Silent Singer indeed...
