Here at Philip Glenister Fans we have taken full advantage of Sky's decision to show the first episode of Mad Dogs Series 3 a week early via their On Demand service and we now bring you our review of episode one. It is (mostly) spoiler free, but we will put it under a cut for those who don't wish to read. Suffice to say, it's a very good episode.
Mad Dogs returns to Sky 1 on Tuesday 4th June at 9pm. Sky’s On Demand users can get it from now via their Sky boxes.
Here at PhilipGlenisterFans, we have today been lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of episode 5 of the 'Minister of Chance', entitled, ‘In a Bark on the River Hex’. The story begins shortly after the reveal at the end of episode 4 and sees the main characters prepare for battle.
Philip certainly gives his all to his character of ‘The Summer King’ and his enthusiasm for the project shines through in his all too brief appearance, as well as his gruff northern accent (Not quite Gene Hunt, but not far off!). He and Julian Wadham play off each other brilliantly in their scene, no doubt building on the working relationship they formed when starring opposite one another in 'This House'. You can really feel the characters’ emotion seeping out of your speakers/headphones (depending on how you choose to listen). And, although we may be slightly biased, we think that Philip steals the show!
The episode itself builds to a nail-biting conclusion as to who and what the character of the Minister might be, (which we shan’t give away), but is still leaves us with a few questions which, as this is the final episode, sadly may not actually be answered. But there is some hope for the future as creator Dan Freeman recently hinted at a movie in an interview with Starburst Magazine. Whether they’ll be able to keep the cast… who knows?
What is remarkable about this project is the fact that it is completely funded by public money. Those responsible have done a fantastic job in creating and telling this story AND making it free to download. The calibre of actors and actresses that have joined this project is testament to the hard work and professionalism of the production team. To you we say ‘well done’. It’s certainly one of the best audio dramas we’ve listened to in recent times.
Watch this space (and the Minster of Chance facebook and twitter accounts) for news of when the episode will be on general release and for something equally exciting from the Minister of Chance team.
