About this programme

3/8. Feature-length episode. Sam and Harry investigate when a gruesome, partly mummified corpse is found after a lorry crashes into an old factory building. The forensic experts attempt to identify the remains by reconstructing the skull, while DCI Telford and DS Linden track down a woman who claims the body is that of a former boyfriend who disappeared seven years previously. It soon transpires that the deceased had unsavoury connections. Benedict Cumberbatch makes an early screen appearance, alongside stars Amanda Burton, William Gaminara and Tom Ward.
