Very good
5 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Racial tension dominates this very strong episode as Jack and D.C. Carl Tanner investigate a series of burglaries.

An informant of Frost's is killed after revealing too much information, and Jack wants revenge. But will he simply believe that a black person is involved?

A thrilling car chase sequence awaits the final conclusion to the case, while credible performances from Lennie James and David Jason probably lets the viewer think about the aspects of racism that are still rife worldwide today.

It certainly brings home the truth of racial discrimination in the police force as well as the outside world, and is told to great effect.
