Storyline

Young David Lomax is crushed by equipment at the recycling plant where he was working and ends up in a wheel-chair with physical and mental damage. Whilst the employers have always claimed it was David's own fault for not observing procedure, his devoted and dogged mother pushes for compensation and ultimately Kavanagh is able to impress upon an honest employee, whose recent bereavement made him a prey to suggestion, to tell the truth in David's favour.

If slow to start with, and some of the secondary characters are underwritten it is a brave episode, dealing with injury at work and what have you. That said though, visually I can't fault the episode, the drama is constantly very well made and this episode is no exception, the writing is decent if not entirely exceptional and the music as always is superb.

The acting help to move the somewhat harrowing story along, with John Thaw, Oliver Ford Davies and Nicolas Jones all doing great work, while Kevin McKidd is very convincing as David Lomax and Frances Tomelty gives a moving performance as his mother. Overall, not the best, but worth watching. 8/10 Bethany Cox
