| Who wrote this tripe?
For a down-to-earth show that has always been based (more or less) in the reality of the late Victorian age, this was an absolutely preposterous episode, that took the show close to "jumping the shark". The absurd plot defies belief.

And it also features a particularly sick/sadistic ending that seems more appropriate to a gruesome horror movie than to a family TV show, a revenge fantasy which, in my opinion, lessens the honor of both of the two main characters.

The only good thing about it was that they finally got rid of the Gillies character once and for all, who was always nothing more than a blatant attempt to mimic the Sherlock Holmes nemesis Moriarty. We had seen far too much of that "evil mastermind" nonsense.

Beyond that, this episode is a blemish on an otherwise admirable show. The writers should be ashamed of themselves.
