For the past eight weeks the UK has been captivated by The Missing which has given the public a reason to stop politely ignoring one another and partake in water cooler talk, and the last time that happened was years ago with Lost. I was one of those many individuals that was hooked from the first episode and although the show faltered along the way I still hoped that it would pay off. That hope was elevated when I logged onto twitter as I always do when watching the show and saw the BBC promoting the use of #TheTruth, which made me believe that we might get closure for both the storyline and the characters. I’d had a nagging feeling that we wouldn’t, this is a British drama and they tend to leave too many things ambiguous to my liking but I was hoping that The Missing would actually give us #TheTruth, unfortunately I was incorrect. If they had cut the last first and last moments of the last episode the show would have been semi decent but I think the writers decided to be too intelligent, they wanted to keep the mystery alive, they wanted to drive us crazy.
