Storyline

The dead girl is Emily. The stress causes her parents to separate, her mother Rosalind telling Banks that Ruth, who was Emily's flatmate in London, is the illegitimate daughter that she gave up for adoption before she met Rydell. Banks is suspicious of Tony, the lad whose van was supposedly stolen by Charlie McKay and the team shadows him, saving him from being shot by Niall Gilbert. Banks gets Tony to confess that he and McKay were couriers for Clough, whom they robbed, Charlie paying with his life. Banks, noting the recent decline in drug arrests, also wonders whether Rydell was on Clough's payroll, the answer to his question coming after a further visit to Rosalind which solves everything.

The daughter of a senior policeman running amok
22 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This review relates to parts 1 and 2 of Cold is the Grave. Cold is the Grace is also the final episode(s) of series 1 of DCI Banks, which is a fine British drama series from the UK, set in Yorkshire.

DCI Alan Banks is played by Stephen Tompkinson, and he has definitely shed his image as the comedic reporter from Drop the Dead Donkey back in the 90s. I really like this drama series, and it's sort of an antidote to Lewis if you know what I mean. There are some wickedly funny moments in this rather grim and sad episode, where Chief Superintendent Rydell and his wife beg DCI Banks to search for their wayward daughter who has run away somewhere in London, caught up in the wrong, bag crowd. Banks has to be very discrete about this and not do it on police time.

Incidentally, Rydell and wife live in a fancy place (in the Yorkshire dales perhaps?) so kudos to the location scouts.

The ending seemed to crumble for DCI Banks, but he recovered and got the respect back of DS Annie Cabbot.
