Storyline

With Mel Silver finally getting her long-awaited promotion to Detective Sergeant, Supt. Boyd and his team investigate a mysterious death when mummified remains are found in dust bins. The body is traced to a house that has been much in the news lately over the eviction of the final tenant by a new owner who wants to renovate the building into a series of new flats. As they explore the premises, they begin to find other bodies in the walls and under the floorboards eventually identifying a total of four victims. The remains all seem to date back a number of years and through a public appeal, the first of the remains found is finally identified. DS Spencer Jordan finally admits to Boyd that he knows this house all too well as he lived there in the top floor flat as a young child. Spencer is conflicted by his father's abandonment when he was only 6 years old and now wonders what may have really happened. Written by garykmcd

A dark and sinister property, with a body in the bin
6 August 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This starts in an unusually happy tone, all the main cast share some laughs and jokes, and enjoy the promotion to Sergeant of Mel Silver. Her promotion seems to cast a dark shadow over Spencer. It all turns dark when a body is found thrown out with the rubbish, the team are drawn to a house, which is particularly dark and nasty, the comparisons ring true between Franky's quote 'it's like 10 Rillington Place,'Property developer Mr Meerman, is a particularly unpleasant character, played very well by Richard McCabe. It is again a very dark story, with elements of old West Indian culture, not only is the story dark, but the filming and picture are overly dark, don't adjust your sets. It does take a little while for this story to develop, it is very good, not excellent. Definitely a strong story for Spencer, where we see his mum, learn more about his family history, relationship with his dad etc. It takes almost the full hour for us to see the brilliant Maurice Roeves. 7/10
