Georgia Wright


In 2003 17 year old Georgia Wright vanished after a university disco in Scotland. Now traces of her blood are found following a garage raid in London,bringing dogged retired police inspector Steve McAndrew to UCOS to ask them to investigate. CCTV proves that Georgia was not one of the robbers but worked at the garage as a cleaner,disappearing soon afterwards. They then get a lead in that Shane Morrison,one of the last people to see Georgia alive,is a fantasist,who persuaded another girl Sophie that he was a secret agent,forcing her to live life on the run with him. The team believes that Morrison is still about and has Georgia in his power. Though the others initially find Steve irritating and his accent incomprehensible Gerry warms to him over a few whiskeys and,the case over,Sandra has a proposition for him.

Did You Know?


[first lines]
Gerry Standing: Why has Strickland called us in so bleedin' early?
Brian Lane: I know. Esther didn't even have time to do me a proper breakfast.
Gerry Standing: You don't think he's leaving as well, do you?
Brian Lane: I reckon he's found somebody; somebody to replace Jack. Yeah, I knew it. They've got some nobody that we've never heard of and they're just going to parachute him in. Or her.

New Blood
18 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a robbery at a local petrol station blood is found; this wouldn't usually be anything for UCOS to interest themselves with but it matched that of Georgia Wright, a girl who went missing and was assumed to have been murdered in Scotland nine years previously. Former Strathclyde detective Steve McAndrew comes down to assist the team with the investigation as it was originally his case and he never believed that she was really dead. One might think that if she is alive then it is just another runaway and as she is an adult now there is no case to investigate but McAndrew believes there is more to it than that… and he is right; she was last seen with 'Dave the Roadie' and when he is investigated they find a trail of false identities tied to a number of women; all of whom he told lies to get them to believe he was actually working for MI6 and they were in danger. He is very persuasive and unless they can find Georgia they won't be able to prove anything.

After losing Jack in the first episode of the series it looks as if they may have found a replacement in McAndrew; I think he'd make a decent addition to the team as he is quite different to the others and most importantly he is nothing like Jack so won't just be Jack Mk II. Denis Lawson does a good job as McAndrew. While this case might not involve a murder case the villain of the story is particularly unpleasant; Daniel Ryan does a great job as Barry Flint; a truly despicable character who lies to women to get what he wants and can't see that there is anything wrong with it.
