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.

Just as she's having a nice conversation with a stranger she met at a bar, DCI Janine Lewis is called in to investigate the murder of a sergeant at a local army base. And guess who happens to be the commanding officer of that base: the very same stranger! As if that doesn't complicate matters enough, the murder is soon followed by another attack, so the base is locked down and Janine's team are forced to stay in - which they are not too happy about.
Yet another intricate episode of "Blue Murder", which does an excellent job of completely misdirecting the viewer about what really happened, and also benefits from a fresh (for this series) setting and typically fine acting in nearly every role, major or minor. *** out 4.
