UPDATE: The missing words have been filled in. Enjoy the episode, let us know what you think of it in the poll that will be up at 9pm :)

This show is really starting to find its feet, the last few episodes have really impressed me and this one is outstanding, I enjoyed it a lot. I do wonder if Overman wasn't able to give his full attention at the start of the series due to his other show, Misfits, needing so much work in its final season, but I think his eye is firmly on Atlantis now and he has addressed fans concerns about it from its first few episodes. The characterisation of the main three has been worked on, their banter has improved so that it’s less bitchy which in turn makes it much easier to believe that they are solid friends working towards a common goal.

Jason’s past, and future, are also touched upon this week briefly, and the Greek mythology and characters we meet are used in a more traditional way which I feel grounds the show more in the audiences eyes. One more thing that I think has improved is the fighting choreography and stunts, each character has a unique style, including some funny fighting skills from Hercules and a confrontation from Pythagoras as he protects Jason that will surely please Jagoras fans!

It was awesome to see Jason Watkins turn up in the episode, as a fan of his I wish he had a larger role but his performance is very satisfying as the ignoble Crios who imparts untrustworthy information to our heroes. Another marvellous piece of casting is Robert Lindsay as Daedalus the inventor, whose workshop is like a Di Vinci inspired Aladdin’s cave. He and Emms played very well off each other and it was great to see Pythagoras working with an equal in order to try and understand the riddle of Pandora’s Box.

My favourite scene has to be one between Hercules and Medusa, the raw emotion from both Addy and Rooper gave me goose bumps and I really felt for them both. Rooper has been seriously under used this season; I have no idea how her predicament is going to pan out but I hope that she becomes a more formidable foe than Pasiphae is. On the subject of the royals, I'm rather liking not having the family in these last few episodes as it seems to have made for a more substantial show in many ways.

The Price of Hope airs at 8.15pm on Saturday 7th December on BBC 1 and BBC 1 HD. Below are some teasers to see you through until then, the missing words and any correct guesses on who says what will be filled in later this week.


“If I tell Hercules what I know he will give his life in an instant”

“I won’t forget what you've done for me”

“I do not like him, not one little bit. The brains of a monkey and the face of a goat”

“I even have hope for my foolish son Icarus, there’s no shortage of hope in this world”

“My spies travelled all the known lands, they returned with many interesting stories”

“Most men dream about women, you dream about triangles

“Two chances, flee or die!”

“Knowing we could never be together, I would rather stay cursed

“It’s not knowledge I seek, I need Pandors's Box

“They've been turned to stone”

“Your injury is grave, you are not saved yet”
