Danny finds a dead body in the woods around the house of Lord Croxley, who happens to be an old friend of Brett's. When he takes Brett to that spot the body is gone, and Croxley immediately dismisses the whole incident. But when the same dead body - which belonged to a top-level political journalist - turns up again, Danny and Brett begin their investigation by trying to find out what case the journalist had been working on for the past three months. It's an intriguing setup for a mystery - the same dead body turns up twice in different locations, a mysterious woman flees the scene of the first incident and then invites Brett to a meeting where she tells him that it's a matter of national importance that he should drop the case, etc. - and the script is knowing and exceptionally timely from a political point-of-view as well (I don't want to spoil it by saying more). However, Roger Moore's (!) direction is a little awkward at times, for example his frequent use of zooms and some weird camera angles. On the other hand, he does makes terrific use of authentic London locations, but I think a more experienced director could have made this episode even better. **1/2 out of 4.
