Storyline

When the body of a worker at a nuclear research centre disappears from the morgue, it smacks of conspiracy to Alex. Was Martin Kennedy killed because he had proof the government was testing neutron bombs? Gene is adamant that murder has simpler motives, and a link to Alex's mother gives him at least one suspect in an investigation that leads them onto dangerous territory. Written by Mark Greig

The research facility corridors feature the very distinctive "running man" fire exit signs that didn't start appearing until after the UK adopted EU-wide standards in 1996. See more »

Quotes

DCI Gene Hunt: Oh dear Lord, if this is a test I fear I may fail. And I thought it'd be the booze or the fags but oh no, I'm going to die in an underground vault in the company of a posh mouthy tart with a head full of brains and the common sense of a grain weevil.
DI Alex Drake: You're not going to die. I can't die. Can I.
[pause, then almost imploringly]
DI Alex Drake: Can I?
DCI Gene Hunt: [looks at her for a long moment] Come here.
[he puts his arm around Alex and she rests her head against his chest]

a fairly good episode
8 August 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Episode 3 was such a high point, the forth offering was a little bit average, the team investigate the death of a worker at a Nuclear Research Centre, and the bizarre way in which the corpse was hastily removed. We meet a bunch of feminists and see more of Alex's parents. The best scene being Ray and Chris following Alex and Hunt, very funny. That apart it's missing some of the vibrancy of the last few episodes. Interesting scenes though when Alex visits her childhood home, sees her childhood possessions, knew the toilet leaked etc, very clever. Montserrat Lombard could have stood in for Cadfael with that haircut. The feminists are somewhat reminiscent of the French Resistance in Allo allo. The vault scenes were good fun, overall pretty good.
