Stonebridge and Scott are back in Strike Back and making everyone else look rubbish

Strike Back returns

It’s almost enough to make me want to watch the latest episode… but not quite, since the new cast and characters are quite rubbish.

It does make me wonder, though: given that the writers can clearly still write decent bantz for Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Scott (Sullivan Stapleton), are they deliberately writing the new characters as a bit dull and rubbish?

I do hope our former dynamic duo aren’t dead by the end of the season, though – that would be pretty predictable for Strike Back, which kills off characters with even greater regularity than Blake’s 7.

Might be nice to have it work out differently for a change…
