Storyline

The police surround the flat but David hands the gun over to Greg, explaining that it was his father's gun, which he had found and wanted to get rid of. Nikki is verbally abused by Charlie's father and DI Klein wants her suspended but Clarissa and Jack discover that the gun found by David did not kill Charlie and nor could he have killed Byron Lee. The pathologists work out that the real serial killer had an alarming insight into David Bennetto's background and their motive was not sexual but obsessed with having power over others. Circumstances also end Nikki's involvement with Greg Walker. Written by don @ minifie-1

Rather cliché but still enjoyable
10 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This story opens with Nikki giving evidence in an appeal case involving a former soldier who had been gaoled for murdering his boyfriend and another gay man. Her evidence help get the man released, much to the annoyance of DI Rachel Klein, the police officer responsible for the case. Not long afterwards there is another killing that bears all the hallmarks of the original case and Klein is more certain than ever that Nikki helped a guilty man walk free. Nikki is taken off the case but she gets involved with the man's solicitor which indirectly leads her into danger.

This was a decent enough story although it was fairly cliché with a member of the team having professional difficulties with an obstinate police officer and getting into a dangerous situation. That said there were still some pretty tense moments. I suspect a fair proportion of viewers will guess the real killer before he is identified… both from clues and the cliché that anybody who shows a romantic interest in a protagonist in a crime drama is going to end up dead or being the killer much of the time! The cast put in a fairly solid performance and as always everything looked good. Overall fans of the series are likely to enjoy it as clichés do at least mean the makers are delivering what is expected!
