Tremendous from start to finish - deserves to go down as a classic.
Witless has been the best BBC comedy of the past 5 years - superlative writing, acting and characterization, grounded in a strong sense of place. It's been a joy to follow, and never jumped the shark - it was always ambitious and kept growing and changing, expanding the canvas each series. I will genuinely miss Rhona and Leanne. The finale wrapped everything up in a clever, warm and incredibly satisfying way; I was in tears of happiness by the final scene. I've rarely seen a straightforward crime/detective series wrapped up with such intelligent writing and attention to character, let alone a comic one. Thanks in no small part to this outstanding finale, the series stands up tremendously as a whole - a thrilling, funny, moving televisual comic novel told that tells a complete story from start to finish. The conclusion left me elated, wistful, contemplative and feeling like I've "witnessed" something special. Thanks to the writers and cast for their stellar work. Hope there'll be a DVD!
