Storyline

Richard Peters is found bludgeoned to death outside his flat, Leo, the baby he adopted with his partner Gareth Wilks is missing. Ruth Pendle, Leo's mother and a former drug addict, is seen on CCTV leaving the murder scene with a man who proves to be Neil Jenkins, the baby's father - at whose home Leo is found. Jenkins admits to pushing Richard though he and Ruth both deny murder and the police charge them jointly. They have separate barristers, each accusing the other, but Kate believes Ruth should not be prosecuted and gets into trouble with Jake for colluding with Ruth's barrister Lydia Smythson by providing information to help her. Ronnie discovers that Kate's bias is due to her missing sister Beth's situation, similar to Ruth's. Ultimately Kate lets her head rule her heart in identifying the real killer, after which Ronnie has good news for her regarding her sister. Written by don @ minifie-1

I call her mobile all the time just to hear her voice on the answerphone.
31 October 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A young couple was arguing over a text message sent by the boy to another girl. In their way outside the block of flats, they noticed a man dead on the ground. He was killed by a blow to the head, probably a hard kick, and an empty buggy lied upside down next to him. A boy went missing, a toddler who had just been adopted by a gay couple. This is a race against the clock for the detectives, because the infant suffers from epilepsy and without the proper medication he could have seizures leading to permanent damages (lost sight, paralysis and so on). CCTV shows his biological parents had crossed the block's gate just before the kidnapping took place. The mother (a drug addicted girl) and the father (a guy with temper and priors for assault) wanted the baby back, but it's not clear who committed the murder, because they put the blame on each other.

Barker has troubles in prosecuting, because the case reminds her something inside her family. But at the trial she is very professional, managing to get over it; Brooks (a fatherly figure for anyone apart from his daughters) plays a crucial role in this.
