Inspector Martha Bellamy, Sergeant Jack Weston and DC Charlie Steele investigate when two-year old Hope Wilkins goes missing after an apparent break-in, which proves to be false. Hope's father Laurie, lives with his cowed young son Toby, having sole access of the children after their mother Rachel was deemed unfit following a breakdown. Nor does Laurie get on with Rachel's religious mother Fiona. Prints on the back window belong to Robbie Hyland, a youngster who ten years earlier had been sentenced for killing his three year old sister. Laurie had argued in the off licence where Robbie worked and soon after Toby, who was friends with Robbie, rang him to say something bad had happened to Hope. Laurie clearly abuses Toby physically and Fiona admits that she took Hope to spare her ill-treatment from her father and that she accidentally died in her care. But Martha and Jack believe she is covering for somebody else. Written by don @ minifie-1

U.K. crime drama- original and effective!
13 February 2014 | by (sea side uk) – See all my reviews

This is a new crime drama with Fay Ripley along with two new comers acting along side as police detectives. The style of the programme is some what modern and the use of hand hold cameras and natural acting is quite effective. In this, The first of the episodes, A toddler goes missing. Her parents are interviewed along with her brother. As with all child disappearances every one is a suspect and time is running short! Other suspects are in the frame, including the grandmother and a local shop worker, who was a convicted child killer as a teenager. Is it an open and shut case of kidnap or is something darker a foot?

I give this first episode and 8 out 10. Found it interesting and was thoroughly engrossed in the story!
