Storyline

Isaac is arrested but club bosses deny knowledge of the sex tape whilst Rachel's widower Adam tells the police that Eva Liron had been Nathan's nanny but had left suddenly. With Mousa shot by the same gun as Rachel ambitious Inspector Leighton assumes that he was delivering the blackmail hush money and was killed by Isaac, whom he wants to nail, though the pathologists will not assist in any stitch-up. Then Clarissa discovers that Adam and Isaac both donated money to Israel and the motive appears to be that they were targeted by anti-Zionist terrorists after Eva had picked them out. But who is the mystery woman posing as Rachel's sister and who perpetrated the murders? The pathologists assist the police in finding out. Written by don @ minifie-1

Introducing Leo's replacement
3 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This two part story opens with a man returning home after a business trip and discovering the bodies of his wife and autistic son. The police seem to think that woman poisoned her son before committing suicide… despite the fact that there is no sign of a gun she apparently shot herself with. In an apparently unrelated case a woman's disfigured body is found on a rubbish barge; it is clear that somebody wanted to prevent her identification but they didn't count one her identification from the ID codes on her breast implants.

While all this is going on we see footballer Isaac Dreyfus whose career appears to be in trouble after he offended Muslims on Twitter. His manager is trying to find a new team for him but things get tougher when a DVD is sent in showing Dreyfus having sex with a woman who is not his wife… the sender demands a large sum of money saying s/he has further footage that show Dreyfus beating the woman. He denies ever hitting her but things don't look good when it turns out that the dead woman on the barge was Dreyfus's au pair/lover and he denies knowing her.

Away from the investigation the team at The Lyle Centre have to deal with the arrival of new boss Thomas Chamberlain; he manages to antagonise everybody almost as soon as he meets them… Leo Dalton he is not.

I deliberately wrote the above précis after only watching the first episode to avoid giving any definite hints as to who really did it. Dreyfus was clearly being set as the 'suspect so obvious he couldn't have done it'… the character; a French Jew named Dreyfus seemed an obvious reference to the famous 'Dreyfus Affair'. For the most part this story was fairly gripping; both cases were intriguing although the inevitable linking came as no surprise; it would have been a bigger surprise if they had no connection. There were plenty of suspects for the viewer to guess from (in my case incorrectly!) and even possible involvement from Mossad agents… all in all a good mystery. The introduction of Chamberlain was rather fun Richard Lintern's performance was good and I look forward to seeing more of the character in future stories.
