Less than two weeks after 3 year old Sammy Wray goes missing from a children's playground, a child's body is found in a sewer. DCI Lewis is leading the inquiry and the pathologist's report cites the cause of death as a blow to the skull. The investigation soon reveals that the boy's father, Clive Wray, is lying to them about his whereabouts the day the boy went missing. His ex-wife is known to have made threats against his new family and she becomes a suspect as well. The case is thrown into chaos however when DNA testing reveals that the dead boy isn't Sammy Wray. The police now have two cases to solve and it's back to square one interviewing Sammy parents, neighbors, workmen and any others who might have be in the area when Sammy disappeared. They're convinced his disappearance and the death of another child of the same age have to be connected but there is no apparent link. Written by garykmcd

The grieving suffering of losing a child
14 June 2008 | by (Olliergues, France) – See all my reviews

This second episode of the third series is amazingly psychological and it approaches the psychology of several offenders but also the coppers themselves and some people in the public with a ton of causticity, the causticity it deserves. We have a case involving the death of a young child and the abduction of another, of course connected. That's the pattern of this series, so we know they are from the very start. It is interesting to approach the psychology of all the people concerned and directly or indirectly involved in the case. The coppers themselves have their problems with the Detective Chief Inspector who might have been in love and might have had an affair with or at least a crush on her direct subordinate is getting jealous because this subordinate dares have a liaison with the public relation officer that is attached to the team because of the very sensitive case they are on. It's funny to see middle aged adults behaving like children. Once again the episode does all it can to entangle the threads so that we cannot guess the end before the end. So go enjoy that episode to discover that end.
