Storyline

Thousands of pounds collected for charity have been stolen, and the only lead is Gil Hollis, the man who raised it. Alex is sure that Gil knows more than he realises and that she can coax it out of him. But when Gene is humiliated on a TV appeal, he resorts to his 'fists first, questions later' method. Can Alex prevent Gene going off the rails just at the point when she needs to stay in control, and if she can't, will someone die? Written by Matthew Graham

Finding the fun again
4 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

There have been some distinctly average episodes in this first series of the 'Life on Mars' spin-off, but in the second half of its run it seems to have regained a sense of fun, and this episode is a good example.

Yes it tells quite a dark story, but there are lots of fun and funny moments along the way to lighten some of the tone.

I thought this episode and the last were a vast improvement.
