Twelve years earlier,after her car tyre blew on a lonely road in Kent one night, Gemma Morrison was raped, and her young brother killed, by two passing motorists - one of whom was called Jason as she recalls. Following her suicide attempt at her thirtieth birthday party the team - with Katrina replacing Stella, to Spence's bewilderment - reopen the case and get Gemma to re-live the events of the night, unaware that she is in an affair with brother-in-law Andrew. Eve proves that the blow-out was no accident and the trail leads to care-taker Jason Bloch. He eludes the team's stakeout and calls on a married man called James. Written by don @ minifie-1

User Reviews

MTV-style rapid cut style awful
11 March 2020 | by Sandalls_51See all my reviews

I like these types of shows normally. Unfortunately the directors and videographers style of 1/10 second long shots and deliberately confusing actor dialog succeeded in an extraordinarily unpleasant impression. Turned this off 10 min in, and will not watch this program again. Very poor direction - felt sorry for the actors in this.
