SEASON 8: EPISODE 16

So that's that then for another six months or so. And after two seasons of watching Rick and the gang fight it out with Negan and the saviours, my overriding feeling after the finale is one of relief. It's no secret that the viewing figures for The Walking Dead have been falling away on a gradual but constant basis for a few series now – and whilst I have my issues with the show (who hasn't), I'm not about to throw the towel in just yet.
