Storyline

The discrediting of DI Hennessy as corrupt throws into a new light some of his more high profile arrests, including that of crooked businessman Edward Monroe, jailed for killing oncologist Dr Caldwell, whom he blames for the death of his daughter. For Sasha, now alone after discovering her husband's infidelity, the case is painful as she has always believed Monroe murdered her former colleague DC Tyler. As fresh interviews are conducted, it turns out that Caldwell was not a pleasant man and had made enemies of his colleague, Dr Hallerman, passed over for honours; Daniella Yates, director of a cancer charity who was having an affair with Caldwell; and Caldwell's duped wife. However a statement from Grace, a hotel employee of Monroe, throws a more humane light upon the convicted killer, as well as giving Sasha some closure for Tyler's death. Steve, meanwhile finds himself billeting his son Stewie, who has run away from home. Written by don @ minifie-1

More drama than laughter in this season finale
1 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

UCOS usually investigate unsolved cold cases; it is there remit after; all but this episode sees them re-investigating a case that was apparently solved by one of the Met's most successful detectives. Several years previously a leasing oncologist was murdered and gangster Edward Monroe, whose daughter he had failed to cure, had been convicted of his murder. As the investigation begins it becomes apparent that the actual evidence against Monroe is the fact that some of his blood was found on the dead man; something he explained as having got there in an argument earlier in the evening. Then further suspects arise; a jilted lover, a jealous wife and a senior doctor who claims to have been overlooked for a CBE while the victim, his junior, received one. As more doubts arise Sasha is left conflicted; she is certain that Monroe was involved in the murder of her partner so doesn't want him released from prison but at the same time doesn't want to be involved in a cover-up. Meanwhile Steve gets a visit from his estranged son; he wants to get back in touch but the investigation is up against the clock and Steve needs to get back to work.

This series is usually an enjoyably blend of drama and laughs but here the concentration is definitely on the drama. As the case developed some fairly disturbing facts emerge about the dead man and ultimately a character one can't help but sympathise with is arrested for his murder. Thankfully this drama was handled well and I was gripped throughout. Tamzin Outhwaite is settling in nicely as UCOS's new boss; I wouldn't be surprised if the series continues with her in the roll for some time. The rest of the regulars put in the expected good performances and Ralph Brown was suitably malevolent as Monroe. This was a fine conclusion to the tenth series; I look forward to the eleventh!
