| Series highlight.
I thought this would stand head and shoulders above the other episodes in terms of rating and reviews, but it doesn't. What Big Eyes is by far and away the best episode in the series. A great storyline, which combines some genuine folk law with the quirky format of the show. The writing is really good, it's less brash then some of the others, the way the RSPCA Officer finds the pet shop and the way the story develops from there is great. I really liked the performances, Michael Kitchen is great of course, Patrick Magee and Madge Ryan both excellent also.

Despite being the obvious choice of story, when I picked up the DVD I knew there'd be a lycanthropy story, but despite that it is the best of the lot. Some great moments, including the fantastic conclusion, which features some fantastic, tense moments.

Really enjoyed it, 9/10
