Series 27 - 20. Broken Heart Syndrome

Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Rackham

Yvonne may be dead and buried but Nick Jordan is not being allowed to forget her. Everywhere he turns, he sees someone who was involved in her death.

His first reminder is when the shopkeeper who, unknown to Nick, accidentally stabbed her, is brought in with chest pains along with his pregnant wife who suddenly goes
into labour.

Then a stroppy lad just released from the young offenders unit where Neil “Nylon” Johns is serving time for killing Yvonne deliberately gets himself into a fight so he can be taken to hospital and give a message to Nick. Meanwhile, a man wearing only underpants is found lying unconscious in a country lane.

About this programme

20/44. Jordan is overcome with grief as the day of Yvonne's funeral dawns, so the last thing he needs is a message from the young offender institution asking him to visit Nylon, the teenager awaiting trial for her attack. But can he ignore the chance to come face to face with the person he blames for her death? Meanwhile, Yvonne's real assailant Mehmet and his wife Yasmin begin to crack under the pressure of their guilty secret, while the ED team must work out the identity of a mystery man and locate his missing son. Michael French and Reece Douglas star.
