Storyline

Alex and DCI Hunt lead a raid on a construction site where a drug deal is being finalized. They also discover a partially buried body in a bed of freshly poured cement. For Hunt, making the drug bust and finding the the body is just a bit too convenient. He suspects the building site foreman of being up to something but can't quite put his finger on it. He soon realizes however that someone on the team is leaking information and he sets an elaborate trap to learn who it is. Alex meanwhile knows she's about to come out of surgery in her waking life and Summers, the rogue copper from her own time, warns her that her time is running short. She is shocked however when she meets the young PC Summers who approaches Hunt with a story about crooked cops and requesting his assistance. Written by garykmcd

The most surreal episode to date, Ashes to Ashes or Dr Who? Slightly muddled
10 August 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A very dramatic start, a raid and a brawl at a construction site unearths a body part buried in cement. Alex continues her 'going home' outbursts and her moving on speeches again, she seems more confident as the bullet was seemingly removed in the last episode. Viv's birthday celebrations unearth some really dodgy 80s fashions, Alex's gold lame dress, Viv's garish shirt and Shaz's crimped hair, class!! PC Summers (Operation Rose) appears in the young guise of Midsomer Murders very own Gwilym Lee. Is he as bad as his older self (Adrian Dunbar) only time will tell. A fairly good, but confusing episode, that asks more questions then it answers. Half way through it turns into Doctor Who, watch it and you'll see what I mean. It does go a little bit surreal, her mum makes a very random cameo appearance. Things start to go wrong, evidence is tampered with, and Gene believes a member of his team is responsible, but which one? Infighting starts to happen, with the team all at each other. I don't think the ending fits in with the series, to me it goes a bit off the boil, the direction that is, not the acting which (by all) is superb. Possibly the weakest episode to date?
