I've just rewatched Slush Fund, which is one of my favourite episodes. Doyle looks absolutely gorgeous throughout (although your mileage may vary on the pullover, I like it). Bodie's Scouse, van Niekerk's skin *g*.

On the question of van Neikerk, I decided to take a good look at the ending. Conventional fannish wisdom has it that Bodie kills him with a shot to the head, something which is often lamented because he's an excellent villain. I decided to find out for myself. Screencaps below the cut, but first a poll. Answer before peeking *g*.

Poll #1522012 Is Piet van Neikerk dead?

Well, is he?

100% dead. He died when Bodie shot him
He didn't die immediately but with his injuries he probably died soon afterwards
He didn't die immediately and if they got him to a hospital in time he probably survived
He didn't die immediately, he survived and will come looking for revenge at some time in the future
