Storyline

A police convoy escorting a civilian under a witness protection scheme is attacked, the witness hospitalized and all the police officers killed, except Inspector Lindsay Denton, who organized the operation at very short notice and who only informed DCC Dryden of the route. Ted Hastings asks Steve and Kate to interview her but Kate pulls out, claiming one of the dead officers, Jayne Akers, was a friend - though she has been having an affair with Jayne's husband Rich. Her place is taken by Georgia Trotman, who is troubled that the men are savage with their interrogation, treating Lindsay as a suspect and delving into her finances. Lindsay herself is moved to a missing persons unit but is shown to have a violent streak, attacking a noisy neighbour. Kate follows her to the retirement home where her mother lives and finds she has rung the hospital from a payphone. Georgia and Steve attend at the hospital where somebody is trying to kill the witness and who kills Georgia. Written by don @ minifie-1

Superb and complex
10 May 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I missed the first series and am I sorry now! A superb and thrilling crime series as complex as anything I have seen in recent years. Keeley Hawes is standout in a great convincing cast. How anyone can write stuff as intricate as this is amazing - either they were a copper in a previous career or they did a serious amount of research. The premise is a cliché but the treatment is anything but. Wrongly accused good cop (Hawes) needs to clear her name as she is railroaded into prison. How this plays out is masterly and never less than gripping. There are so many twists and turns that the viewer never knows who are villains or good guys. I enjoyed every minute of this piece. Jed Mercurio is a talent to be harboured and nurtured.
