Actually, I must say, despite all the 'shipping, whateverhisnameis doesn't incite the same indignant getawayfromher-itis that Andrew and Milner did; I quite like him. Although not so much that I can remember his name, obviously.
Talking of Milner - wot no Milner? Was quite surprised by that, especially given that new!lackey was asked to contact Brighton police at one point, I sort of assumed that would bring him in. Also quite like the new lackey, despite his vague resemblance to Jimmy Carr.
And Sam and Foyle conspiring at the end? *loves*
