Wasn't that the guy who offered the large reward the same one who 'arranged' some witnesses?
I did raise an eyebrow, I must say!

Episode 3 - notice the deliberate and awkward hand-holding bit when someone knocks on the door? titter

I feel in this episode the story seems to have slowed right down, which is disappointing given the pace of the first two. Good cliff-hanger to finish it, though - sent shivers down my spine!

Would tend to agree with you Brian, re the pacing of episode 3.

I think we'll 'see' a number of similarities between actual and fiction, as I'm sure the principle production staff, the producers, writers and director, have analysed footage from a number of cases.

The (inevitable) scene which stuck out for me, was the wife telling hubby they wouldn't be in this situation had he looked after their son. My first thought was... has this conversation been aired? If so who was present? And who was on the receiving end? For if we are to believe the abduction theory, a direct consequence of nine adults leaving their charges to their own devices, someone must have come up with the bright idea. Someone who must be carrying quite a heavy burden... or maybe not.

There are 8 episodes in the series, and if not utilised properly, you'll get the same problem we've seen with the last two series of 'Homeland'. The first series was just (sorry to sound American here) awesome! It was gripping! It is the best thing I've seen since the early seasons of 24. The 3rd series and the present one just drag and drag and drag. They've got 12 hour-long slots to fill and about 2 hours-worth of interesting story so there is so much filler it spoils the drama. I hope 'Missing' isn't going to go down that route!

Madeleine Obrien she was the little girl in a pose very similar to maddy in her jersey with the strange hand/arm pose.I saw it posted on another thread about the similarities in looks. I found the pose to be quiet similar...just an opinion. Im not sure if it was intentional but seemed like it

Last two episodes out soon

Post by PeterMac on 07.12.14 8:00

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2863741/As-TV-thriller-s-gripped-nation-reaches-climax-s-MISSING-kidnapper.html

It's the smash-hit TV whodunit of the year: the gripping tale of a young boy’s abduction during a family holiday in France and his father’s desperate struggle to find him.
For the past six weeks, eight million fans have been perched on the edge of their seats, glued to the plot twists in BBC1’s The Missing.
The tense action in the series switches between 2006, when five-year-old Olly vanished, and the present day as his father Tony Hughes, played by James Nesbitt, tirelessly searches for clues.
Initially, the boy’s disappearance seemed an open-and-shut case when police in the sleepy French town of Chalons du Bois arrested prime suspect and known paedophile Vincent Bourg.
But as the complex storyline has developed, the finger of suspicion has been pointed at an ever-increasing number of characters – including the father himself.
As the series draws to an end, with just two more episodes to go, we run the rule over the possible suspects – and give odds, compiled by bookmaker Ladbrokes, on them being the killer.

Hope Carter-Ruck have seen them.

Actually, the cynic in me is saying that the whole thing is just another attempt to drum the idea into the national (global?) psyche that Mr and Mrs are innocent, a psychological ruse along the lines of: the fictional parents in 'The Missing' are innocent so the McCanns are innocent too, by association. Look at the timing. Swan & Summers and now this. Good grief! When did I start to think this way?

In my opinion.

I agree.

So many "coincidences".

Yes i thought it was him, i find it odd about his son, but he never mentions his wife? I know i have missed 2 episodes, but i really do think he is implicit some how.....

I think it's a classic case of detective fiction, that the one you least suspect ends up being the perpetrator. But it won't be the parents because you know who would find a way to make a lucrative court case out of it, I shouldn't wonder.

In my opinion.

By the way it's on iPlayer if you want to catch up.

I haven't watched any of it and don't wont to, but from what I have read I think you may be right that it wont be the parents BrianG.

If it's the parents, I'll eat my hat, my shoes, my underpants and - for good measure - my subscription form to Masons' Monthly :)

Regardless of which character in the program committed the crime - the resemblance between the parents and the McCann couple is startlingly clear.

I saw the photo from the TV whilst scanning a website and had a double take, thinking initially it was K+G.

So whatever the outcome of the TV show, there is a clear intention to draw comparisons with K+G - whether to put them in a positive or negative light.

There's a fold on a neck there that needs investigating.

Well spotted, BG - the image of Madeleine does appear to have been added to an obviously kosher photo of her parents. yes
