About this programme

2/8. The team is asked to reinvestigate the 1975 death of a union leader, whose body was found in the Thames. As the detectives delve deeper into the case, a financial scandal involving misappropriated funds is uncovered and a Labour peer points the finger of suspicion at the victim's deputy, but Brian's increasingly erratic behaviour threatens to hamper the inquiry. Frances Barber, Kenneth Cranham and Dave Hill guest star.
