DC Anna Travis joins a team on the hunt for a particularly gruesome serial killer. When the latest victim is found and doesn't fit the usual profile of the killer's victims, Travis sets out to prove herself.
Deputy Chief Constable Stephen Blackton is called into the Met to investigate two possible scandals. Known as Blackdog, he has a well-deserved reputation at pursuing corrupt police officers. The first case is the Cripps shooting where an unarmed man was shot by an armed police squad. Although a coroner's enquiry found no fault, Commander Blake has raised doubt as to DCI Mike Hedges' role. The case takes a particular turn when one of the armed officers, Graham Warner, is found dead. Blake also finds herself under investigation by Blackton over her sexual relationship with accused serial killer James Lampton. With the trial approaching, there is great concern as to the adverse publicity that will result. Written by
David Patrick O'Hara starring in Blackdog -Commander III is an excellent series. The acting is excellent but I am disappointed with the ending of the story. I would like to see the series further continued in story content with O'Hara as leading actor. The story is very true to life and the acting within is excellent. Both Amanda Burton and O'Hara compliment each other. La Plante should continue on her episodes with these great actors/actress in this series especially with O'Hara, who is very complimentary with his acting abilities. He is an actor who is not appreciated by many. David O'Hara is an actor that can achieve many La Plante writings and should be therefore, taken into account by the author. O'Hara is definitely overlooked on the big screen. As a talented and handsome person, it makes one wonder why he is not a candidate for larger parts and acting in a Oscar type motion picture.
