Father Thomas Martin is found brutally stabbed in his church. He used
boxing to reform local thugs and bring calm to the community which
rioted years before. Police was not welcomed in the estates back then.
Commander Clare Blake leads the investigation. Denny Wade is an early
suspect after serving ten years for killing his wife. Jack Bannerman is
a local leader and a thug during the riots. Jimmy Bannerman is his son
following his boxing father. DCI Doug James reveals that he was
involved in a deadly riot incident.
After turning the show into a procedural, it continues to be somewhat
slow. The police team doesn't have the earlier personalities. It's only
Blake and Doug James that really stands out with their own identities.
Jack Bannerman seems a little fake as the reformed thug. It would be
more interesting for him to be in a suit and tie. Jimmy is kind of
interesting. There is maybe enough material for 2/3 of the running
