DCI Jeanine Turner and her team investigate the murder of a senior NCO at an army base. They're getting some cooperation from the military, but they're worried about bad publicity and aren't being entirely truthful about what they know about their personnel. From the beginning, she finds the case has all of the hallmarks of a family dispute but a second and then a third death points to illegal drug use, affairs and the challenges of having to face an impending relocation to a war zone. Jeanine has to deal with her own feelings for Major Tim Fairhead who she had only recently met and who feels the same about her. That relationship also elicits a sharp reaction from DI Richard Mayne.

Police Force versus Armed Forces
24 June 2008 | by (Olliergues, France) – See all my reviews

End of life crisis. The series is coming to a close. This last episode is supposed to go grandiose, to go eternal. So let's take the armed forces into the picture. That's spectacular with all the uniforms, with the barracks in ancient castles, with the discipline and the language, and of course with the conflict of interests and of methods between the good old police and the not so good but just as old armed forces. But don't expect anything transnational and patriotically ethical. Nothing but sordid family business, and Officer Lewis says it just right, most crime are family affairs. Maybe that's slightly limited as for profiling, but that is true if we are only dealing with isolated crimes. And the episode is there to prove it and prove it it does. Sordid. The worst part of it is that the armed forces of any country produce the two elements necessary for such a nasty crime. First the belief that anything that happens in the armed forces will remain there and the armed forces will do all they can to cover it up. And the second element is that those who are attached to the armed forces without being members of them, like the children and the spouses have a tendency to believe there is no one to help them when there is a problem in the armed forces since the armed forces are going to do all they can to cover it up, and they would never think of the police, of course, except of course the Military Police, which is no police at all.
