As you prepare yourselves to see The Responder season 2 episode 3 on BBC One next week, let’s go ahead and say the following: Chris has another challenge on his hands. In particular, he is going to be taking on a job that will require him to test his skills of persuasion.

Is there a central objective for Martin Freeman’s character at the heart of this story? That certainly appears to be the case and yet, at the same time, this will be character-focused more so than about a progression of events. Freeman should get a chance to shine in here, and the power of the series will be found in dialogue more so than any particular action sequence.

For some more discussion, go ahead and check out the full The Responder season 2 episode 3 synopsis below:

Chris needs Franny to get him a day job, so he agrees to pick up a guy Franny is looking for called Vernon Hartley. But can he convince Vernon’s mother and grandmother to give him up?

Now, the craziest thing that we really should say at the moment is the simple fact that this episode represents the halfway point of season 2! There is obviously a lot of good stuff still coming, but you may have to wait a long time in order to see some of it. We just hope that you are patient, given that you are certainly going to need to be while you wait for whatever is coming to eventually arrive near the end of the season. If nothing else, BBC One projects tend to be rather exceptional when it comes to slow builds.

Is this going to be the last season?

We’ll be able to share more on this when we come to the finale, but for now it certainly appears that the door will be left open — and with that, it will be based mostly on if Freeman wants to come back and the story is there.
