Department S Episode 11: The Man Who Got a New Face

Department S_The Man Who Got a New Face Title Shot

A man wakes up and sees his reflection in the mirror and dies! Sir Curtis Seretse’s friend is dead by a heart attack and he is not exactly happy with the circumstances surrounding his death. Was it a joke gone bad or an intent on malice? There were some rumblings of a feud between an actress and Mr. Kolliatis. Jason went to speak with the actress while Stuart meets with an atrractive “houseguest” of Kolliatis. The actress may not have been the quarreller but the subject of the quarrel. Someone is playing around with Department S with threatening messages and the threats become more serious but less obvious where or who its coming from. When the actress is killed in a mysterious car crash, the investigation blows open until the last moment.

Personal Synopsis

This particular episode is strange, I believe the story is hard to follow and the names sometimes are difficult to recall. The crash scene at the end has got to be one of the finest TV crashes EVER!! Frankly its cheesy but very interesting camera work. All in all the episode has nice views f the french coast and the story can keep many interesting.
