It is not available on iPlayer on the BBC Web site?

WTF?

Does this mean that even the BBC agree that the episode was as crap as many posters on here think?

The fact that he has no need to.

I'd like to be able to check the books that Derren has "memorised".

That is what I mean when I bang on about Derren including "misdirection" at the start of every show.

Disagree entirely.

People can detect falseness at 100 paces.

Carefully watch Sandy in the next few episodes.

No. I'm suggesting that he is using a combination of basic standard margician's tricks.
