Vicious Special final now coming for the UK also. Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi and Frances de la Tour returned to reprise their roles about a elderly gay couple for one final episode.

It is always great to see such great actors and although the series had a rather stilted start you could always see what the writers where aiming for. As everyone became more relaxed so the audience became more fond of the characters.

The final episode has already aired on PBS but the UK, where of course the series is made, gets it this coming week.
