Storyline

Human rights lawyer Richard Warner is burned to death in his living room and on his charred corpse Eve finds the DNA of Joseph Marial,his former client,deported back to Sudan after being found guilty of robbery,who has illegally reentered Britain. Rosa believes Mariel was innocent,convicted because the court disliked Warner's cavalier style,but Warner's cash-strapped son Nick,who also visited his father before he died,accuses the Sudanese of murder. Eve discovers that the dead man was suffering from the onset of dementia and has cause to wonder if his death was not an act of revenge but a mercy killing inspired by love.

Flawed but entertaining enough
12 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In this week's instalment it looks as if the team are dealing with an open and shut case when a prominent human rights lawyer is found burnt to a cinder and there is DNA evidence proving that a former client who had been deported after serving a prison term had recently visited his house. Of course nothing is quite as simple as it first appears; other suspects appear, it becomes clear that the original case against the deported man was flimsy to say the least and the post mortem reveals a few surprises.

This wasn't a bad episode although it did have a few glaring faults; when Rosa started investigating the original case it looked as if the creators had decided that if a black person is convicted of a crime another black person will automatically think something is wrong… although in fairness she did later report his location even though she thought he was innocent; a second flaw was the final scene where Eve and Rosa tell a man what is going to happen to him; surely this would be done by lawyers not by a couple of scientists! Overlooking these faults the story was enjoyable enough and had plenty of twists and turns… enough to make sure this viewer didn't work out who did it too soon!
