Meanwhile, there is also action at the school, with a new headmaster that's not what she seems and a separate alien threat that wouldn't look out of place in Doctor Who. This dramatic subplot is overshadowed by the main plot, but the seeds are sewn nicely for it to develop in the next episode. The team are split even more for most of the episode, leaving Tanya especially with not much to do.
Co-Owner of a Lonely Heart is again quite slowly paced, with most of the drama coming towards the end of the episode. It feels like it's more of a two-parter with next week's episode rather than a stand alone episode. Overall the episode is a good story with a lot going on - including a few very odd moments - and two cliffhangers that got me very excited for next week's episode, Brave-ish Heart.
