Passes the time but is hardly must see TV

The series continues much as it started with lone policeman DI Hale bringing a case to Dr Lockhart before the two of them along with Lockhart's team solve a suspected murder with no other police involved. This week Hale brings a hand, which has been brought into the police station by a member of the public. The fact that it was found near the estate of a very wealthy recluse who had previously been accused of a sexual assault gives Hale the excuse he needs to expect his prejudices about the rich… not to say that the man wasn't suspicious though. A search of the grounds makes him even more of a suspect when a body is found. The body belongs to a heroin addicted rent boy who went missing from a drop in centre that was funded by the Reclusive Penton so perhaps Hale was right to suspect him from the start… or perhaps there is another suspect who has yet to be considered?

This episode passed the time well enough Keith Allen continues to entertain as the obnoxious Hale and Tara Fitzgerald puts in a good performance as Eve. The rest of the regular cast are okay even if their characters are annoyingly cliché. Unless things pick up drastically I can't see this series lasting anywhere near as long as 'Waking the Dead'; it is hard to believe that this is a spin off of that excellent show.
