Storyline

Whilst Brian faces disciplinary action for a death in custody from his past the rest of the team discover the gun that killed drug-trafficker Christian Highsmith in 1998. The same gun killed a young boy, Danny Bossano, in 1982 in Gibraltar, a port of call for the ships on which Christian allegedly hid the drugs. The UCOS team go to Gibraltar to meet Superintendent Cruz, the local cold case chief, who believes Danny was part of the dope-smuggling gang. The fact that the gun was army issue also leads to the evasive commander Adam Sinclair whilst Sandra quizzes casino owner Harry Truman, who had been a friend of Christian. Gerry and Steve visit Truman's casino but accidentally get locked in a shipping container whilst shipping agent Gordon Fletcher, an associate of Truman, is found dead. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

The shot of of Sandra in the car yelling at Gerry and Steve, from the boys' point of view, may not have been staged: the runway for Gibraltar Airport really does cross the main road into town. When a plane comes through, arms come down to block the road (similar to a railroad crossing) to stop the pedestrians, bicyclists, and cars from crossing the runway. This arrangement places GIB on many "world's most dangerous airports" lists. See more »

The Commander spent the entire interview in his office with his left rank slide upside down with the loop facing outwards and not next to his neck. See more »

Very disappointing
31 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

1. They miss Jack dreadfully. McAndrew is OK, but they miss the fourth leg of the table that Jack provided, and in particular his experience and cold eye, as well as his crucial support for Sandra. 2. The "naughty boys" angle with Gerry and McAndrew is clichéd and overdone. 3. Brian's "oddities" are similarly overplayed. So many scenes in this episode we have seen before. 4. This storyline can't possibly justify a double episode. There were many longeurs in this. It often seemed like a travelogue for Gibraltar. Was the travel industry involved, as in the recent Woody Allen films?

In conclusion, very little joy for two fans who've loved the series from the start - until recently. I suppose we all have to accept the sell-by date is long gone! Great telly in the good years.
