Storyline

Inspector Pascoe's grandmother dies, and he sets out to discover the truth about his grandfather: why he disappeared during WWI. Pascoe is falsely told that his grandfather was a deserter but continues his quest. An animal rights group, in a seemingly unrelated incident, attacks a pharmaceutical firm's labs. The leader (Amanda Marvell) escapes to the woods nearby and falls over a skeleton. Dalziel is attracted to Marvell but relentlessly sets out to solve the murder of her disciple, though her Jeep is involved. Flashbacks are used to show the threads linking the two cases. The skeleton is found to have arsenic in the bones; Marvell's brother's death in Africa is suspected not to be accidental; Dalziel discovers the theft of experimental data from the lab, showing it not to have a purely beneficent medical mission in Africa; and Pascoe proves his grandfather was innocent.

arsenic, medicine, murders and other murders
25 October 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

The episode is played both under the WWI and present. Inspector Peter Pascoe's grandmother is buried, and he discovers material saying that a doctor murdered soldiers and even his grandfather by arsenic poisoning. The doctor is making experiments of a medicine, Metodine, who is going to help patients with lung problems. This is played in the sight of Robert Pascoe. Pascoe also finds that the hospital he is sent to is isolated as the letters from outside is burned. Meanwhile in 1998, a environment group splits and Dalziel falls in love with the leader as her friend is being killed by the doctor's grandson. The leader's brother is killed in Africa and she finds that tests show that it is given too high arsenic doses to the population.
