  • Elderly dementia sufferer Nancy leaves her care home to report that her policeman husband Jimmy, who disappeared in 1956 was actually murdered. Harry Page, an old friend of the couple, reports that Jimmy had gambling debts and got into a fight the night that he died. Sasha takes Nancy back to her old house where she recalls Jimmy's violence and jealousy. A grim secret is discovered in the bedroom wall, in turn leading to the solution of the murder. Meanwhile Steve is called to the police station when his son Stewie is cautioned for minor drug possession, which brings him into conflict with his ex-wife Tricia. They do not part on good terms.

  • UCOS reopens the case of police constable Jimmy Hargreaves who, in 1956, was believed to have fallen into the river and drowned. A body was never recovered but he had last been seen at the pub and his usual route home brought him by the river. All that changes when his now elderly wife Nancy, who is also suffering from dementia, leaves her care home going to the nearest police station to report that a murder took place in her old house. By the time DCI Sasha Miller gets to meet her, she has no recollection whatsoever of ever having been to the station. Her son Terry is quite angry that the police would even question his mother given her condition. When they search her old home, they do find evidence of death - but it's not quite what they were expecting even if it does lead to solving Jimmy's death.
