I'm not saying it wasn't good at the end, but it just seemed the acting wasn't quite as good as it had been - Delia, Dan, Steve, Rodney, Lurch, Mervin, Joyce etc. Even Rita had her moments. Compared to the earlier episodes the supporting actors really weren't up to much.

As for characters, they'd also started to wear the archetypes a bit thin by the end - Lexie was just a screeching bitch, and Brumby was almost a carbon copy (both from the excruciating Maxine Daniels template).

The stuff at Blackmoor was good though, although they flunked it with the dodgy top dog and not showing us Cynthia.
Oh, I agree then. The hey day of PCBH was undoubtedly the Bea/Lzzie and Doreen era for me. Not to mention Vinegar Tits.
