Ashes to Ashes Update- Episode 6


On A2A this week on BBC America Alex Drake (Keeley Hawes) has a dream in which she feels herself dying, and falling into an abyss, then into a bed, with someone else on the otherside of the bed (she figures this is Evan). There is the return of The Clown, and references to a Rubik's Cube , which she tried to solve as a child....the Rubik's Cube was a gift from Evan when she was a kid.

On the job Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) recognizes the MO of a thief he "nicked" in Manchester, Chas Cale, in a robbery of a post office in London. The investigation leads to a dead end when Gene and Alex question Chas and his wife about the crime, and he apparently has a rock solid alibi.

But then again....did Chas have a proxy or an accomplice, and was Chas the mastermind behind the theft?

A suspect is brought in, along with the guy's 8 year old nephew...and he's given a Rubik's Cube to play with while the uncle is interrogated.

(Hmmmmm!)

Meanwhile, Alex feels that she is about to die....and wants desperately to tell Caroline that she, Alex, is actually Caroline's daughter.

Also the love-hate relationship between Gene and Alex takes another step forward, in a manner of speaking....but as hot as they were a few episodes ago (trapped in the vault), this episode may have left one of the main characters just a bit cold.

(Hmmmmm again!)

And that's all I'm going to say....look for the rerun, or ON DEMAND, or crank up your DVR's.

Check out the BBC America website for more info, and for this week's ITunes playlist ( Michael Jackson, Roxy Music, Soft Cell, Smokey Robinson, John Lennon and more).

Below, a BBC interview of Keeley Hawes, Philip Glenister, Dean Andrews (Ray Carling), and Marshall Lancaster (Chris Skelton) on the A2A set.
