DCI Turner and her team have multiple, but inter-related , murders to investigate. It all starts when three men who have just robbed a jewelry store of a recent delivery of valuable watches. While making their escape in a stolen car, they strike a pedestrian crossing the street, 14 year old. Two of the thieves make their escape on foot but the driver, Tony, is taken into custody. When Tony is being transferred to jail, both he and the police constable escorting him, Eddie Carter, are shot by someone who rode by on a motorcycle. The police try to find out who masterminded the theft, assuming Tony was killed to keep him quiet. The only problem is that it isn't Tony who was the target. Written by
It takes so little for a copper to become unethical.
This episode starts the third series of Blue Murder. First the old grouchy DCS has retired or been retired and replaced by a woman who is a lot more dynamic and really gets involved in some high-profile cases. This case does not deal with a real social problem but with a real personal problem involving a very well regarded copper, his wife and his son who is a copper too, plus the commanding officer of this son. We get two lines of investigation about two cases but they are connected of course and it is your mission to go discover how and why. It is well done and well constructed. The reputation of a copper and of the police is at stake and is properly defended, though the unethical conduct cost the life of several innocent people, including an unborn baby. The outcome is definitely not what we were expecting and that's good.
