So, 12 hugely entertaining if frustrating weeks (please, editors, we don't always need black and white) and we finally have a winner.
Some truly disgraceful antics (Jenny), backstabbing (Alex), outright lying (Michael and, er, pretty much everyone) and many hilarious moments and we learned who was to be Sirallan's apprentice.
4 made it to the final, then 2, and I feared the moment that Claire would be handed the role for her 'transformation'. But you'd need a very large transformation to come back from stabbing a good man in the back, as she did to the thoroughly decent Simon.
And after it all, when all the shenanigans are over...
the best human being won.
