Threats, bribery, murder, kidnappings, fake news, and political take-over! How can such high level corruption be overcome?Peter Mitchell's thoughts at the end of Season 10: "I think it’s a big enough mess that it will take more than one episode to clean it up. I’ve been studiously avoiding the hard work of making it all make sense. I think what I’ll probably do is use a couple of the early episodes to deal with the repercussions of last year and then bounce the show ahead three months in time because I don’t think we’re purpose built to go dark, dark, dark. We’re allowed to go dark on the show but I don’t think we can stay there."
