Storyline

Fresh from her successful SWAT raid on a group of Russian gangsters DCI Sasha Miller arrives at UCOS to replace Sandra. She is friendly and informal but initially fails to win over Gerry, who misses Sandra. Her first case involves the twenty-five year old murder of Italian Allesandro Manzini, reopened when a knife is found at the allotment he once tended. Massimo, whose son married Allesandro's daughter Giulietta, tells the team that there was anti- Italian feeling on the allotment, especially from two World War Two veterans, whilst lorry driver and druid Ray Barlow is also suspect, having disappeared after the murder. This suspicion is heightened when Giulietta and Ray admit to an affair but Dan's research into wartime Italy changes everything, leading to a confession. Sasha's private life, however, does not run so successfully. Written by don @ minifie-1

Good solid episode
2 March 2019 | by rpleunisSee all my reviews

Whilst the plot summary tells the headlines, the story evolves about mostly not knowing about eachother and make assumptions. This goes for the killer, victim and the UCOS team. This is perfectly shown by Tamzin in the end scene.
