The Mill: Series 2, Episode 5 – Review

In episode 5 of the amazingly talented TV show, The Mill, we learn of the news that the recession is having a devastating impact in the UK and in turn Quarry Bank. Daniel’s trying to get everyone together to make a protest, but everyone else thinks working in the bank is better than nothing and so choose to carry on with their lives as normal. Meanwhile, William appoints John Howlett to lead a new team of constables and Hannah Greg’s health seems to have taken a turn for the worst. Will she survive?

Episode 5 was a wake up call for me because sadly the next episode will be the last one of this series. As with my previous episode reviews I’ve done of The Mill, this one is going to be a good a positive one.

There’s tons of changes coming to the Mill, with the new constables, the recession hitting across the UK, and the riot towards the end of this episode. The mini riot towards the end was brilliant because we finally see the workers not being afraid to make a stand and this could reflect to people in this day and age who want to be heard. What I like about The Mill is, even though this set a very long time ago in the past, all these little problems that the workers are facing, workers in 2014 are facing the same problem. What I would love to see in the next episode is Miriam making a comeback for Peter so they can make another go at things, simply because they are the best couple in the programme; both of their characters are made for each other. We can see his world is slowly falling apart and if she was here, then she’d be able to help him out and stand by him.

I am looking forward to the next episode, but apart of me is sad, because as we all know, it’s the last episode of the series. But deep down I know that the last episode will go out with a bang! Hopefully there is an open door for series 3?!
