Great news! I've just started the fifth book. I believe this series covers book five and half of book six.

Looks like the toads (already glimpsed briefly) will be having their moment in this week's episode :D

It was a great episode last night, got very Gothic at times. I can't believe it's nearly the end of the series :(

Yes, an excellent episode. Osborne Whitworth is quite revolting, isn't he? :o The actor who plays him is doing a brilliant job at being slimey. He had to put on loads of weight for the part, apparently. He's quite a pleasant looking man normally!
