Storyline

Grace and Boyd interview Stanley Heath's son Jason,who tells them that his father and two other policeman were murdered for beating to death a suspect in custody some years earlier. It seems likely that that prisoner was Nicholson's father and Boyd becomes convinced that Nicholson knew the boys' murderer and shielded him,deliberately losing his reports. The team's concern for Sarah grows as Nicholson brings in two sinister detectives to spy on them. Gradually Boyd works out that crooked property developer George Barlow took the orphaned Nicholson under his wing and that Nicholson,out of loyalty,protected the murderer,who was close to Barlow. Boyd is able to use this to effect belated justice but is he too late to save Sarah? Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

We are told that Sgt Heath was 35 in 1961 so would have been only 19 when WW2 ended, yet he wears 4 WW2 medal ribbons, extremely unlikely at best; one of the medals is the Defence Medal, which required 3 years' service; award of it to Heath is impossible. PC Edgerton, clearly even younger than Sgt Heath, has 5 WW2 medal ribbons which he could not possibly have earned. See more »

Brilliant episode of a brilliant series.
4 May 2011 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

I really hope the high ratings will bring this show back, although producers wish to end it at its prime. First of all, please read the wonderful review of the Telegraph, listed in external reviews on this site, but beware of spoilers. What can I say since I cannot add spoilers? Acting is great, especially of Trevor Eve, who gets as his final case one similar to the disappearance of his son to solve. This final episode he shows once more the whole spectrum of his complex character: haunted by the disappearance of his son, his almost impossible dedication to the work. But it all comes full circle in the end, also with his team. You will sit on the edge of your seat, since the plot keeps on thickening until it seems to explode - and then there is a really good twist at the end. I also loved the meaningful atmosphere in the end, and the soundtrack played. So is this really the final episode? Looking at the quality, it is understandable producers consider now would be the best time to cut the series since, after Waterloo, where do you go from there? Well, what about another season, and another? English actors and TV makers are always able to astonish viewers with ease, so I have faith ITV can do it. Even if it would be half as good, it would still be ten times better compared to the quality you get from US productions - the only exception Miami Vice, which set the standard for TV, and who's final episode Freefall, especially the last 5 minutes, I consider to be the best TV has ever seen. But that was then and this is now - and what now, after Waking The Dead? Silent Witness? Too corny for me, and acting is not half as good as Boyd and his team. So I hope the producers and writers will have the guts to try and do even better in a next season! I even have some title ideas: The Boyd Ultimatum?
