Of course, and by now who would have thought any different, this Series 3 contains en masse of familiar musical approaches. Avenues not really explored, moreover re-entered from a different angle. Interestingly rather knowable in certain areas, it's edges are, well, edgier, that's for sure!
So using these known quirks from earlier episodes here on Series 3 of the now-cult TV show allows us to shut our eyes, put our head back and instantly know who we have in mind for the music that dances around our ears. And trust me, that's a really good, comforting thing.
