Storyline

Thanks to a Chief Superintendent who is obsessed with damage-limitation, Janet is charged with manslaughter though Annie makes sure that she gets off. A friend of the missing Leanne leads Alan to believe that Payne had a female accomplice to lure the girls into his car and Lucy is the obvious suspect, though she denies it, at the same time admitting she knew her husband was a killer. She also blackmails Maggie into paying for a lawyer for her though Maggie counters by ringing the press to explode the 'accomplice' story. Investigations show Lucy to have been the victim in a famous abuse case as a child and she is diagnosed as mentally ill and incapable of having a mind to murder. Alan must discover to what extent she really was involved in the killings and if she knows where to find Leanne, alive or dead. Written by don @ minifie-1

Police brutality?
14 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am re-watching the first episodes of DCI Banks, and still do not understand why the police investigator gave the female police officer such a hard time about hitting the rapist/murderer. I know that police brutality is taken seriously, as well it should be. But this officer's partner was horrifically killed by a man who, it is discovered, has abducted, raped and murdered several young women. The only surprise to me is that the officer didn't kill him in turn.

Enters another female officer (Annie) to investigate the "brutality" charges of a rapist/murderer; the investigator seems not to have the slightest bit of sympathy or understanding for the situation in which the subject of the investigation finds herself - her partner is murdered in front of her, and she , filled with anxiety and adrenalin, hits the perpetrator over the head while he is handcuffed.

There are so many reasons why anyone may have reacted in exactly the same manner. None of those reasons seem to have been considered. Instead, in an effort to her further her ambitions and make a good impression, the investigator really goes after the officer. The investigator eventually relents on the threats to put the officer in prison, but her job is still threatened. That was her thanks for single-handedly subduing a very dangerous felon.
