D.C.I. Janine Lewis returns after her maternity leave only to be plunged into a murder investigation - and then witness to a hit-and-run incident at her son Tom's school. The murder investigation leads them to a strip club run by James Harper - the owner of the vehicle involved in the hit-and-run. Written by
Two crimes, two deaths, two lines come together in the course of the inquiry. The tricky intricacies of the two lines and how they get together is the core of the film. So you'll have to watch it to know. The first line is a hit and run with an officially reported stolen car But the hit and run was caused by the stress of the mission the driver was on. The second line is that of illegal immigration from Eastern Europe: girls who come to England to be nothing but whores and eventually barmaids, to cover up the deal. And then you add to that a fictitious pimp who looks and sounds like Bizet's famous invisible Arlésienne. What appears clearly in this episode is that the author cooled down the DCS and insisted on the social and political problem treated here. Quite a good job.
