Episode five, for Christmas is almost upon us. Sadly this does mean the necessity of the bit with all the cardboard, but hey, 1980s BBC budgets only get you so far. As a bonus we do also get a nice build up of plot in anticipation for the big finale on Christmas Eve. It's just a shame about all the cardboard...

You have to wonder a bit about someone who's that enthusiastic about dungeons...

If you have dungeons, I challenge you not to be enthusiastic about them. ;)

I think the 'if' is key here. I admit nothing!

Nobody admits to dungeons anymore... Maybe it should be a feature, get Sarah Beeny on it! "Add 20k to the value of your home with a bijou little torture chamber! Check out these zazzy sex swings and manacles - all in tasteful magnolia!"

Locked away in a kitschy dungeon. Truly a cruel and unusual punishment!

I get the impression all the cardboard is actually deliberate: I think they're trying to make The Past look two-dimensional and not entirely real, to go with Herne talking about The Past as being a great book with many pages.

I don't say it entirely works, mind you, but I think it was a considered creative decision, and not just the budget suddenly running out.

Yes, I agree with you. I've just never been sure about it as an artistic choice. The sea that he crosses as well - it doesn't fit (for me) with the realisation of the other fantastical things that occur. It all gives the impression that Arnold has been living all these years in some sort of hallucination, rather than a real place. Of course, it's perfectly possible that that is the case.
