Review by:
Alison Graham

Detective Robbie Lewis and pathologist Laura Hobson are so deeply in lurrrrrve that they have taken to flirting across corpses at crime scenes and in the lab.

They are so lost in each other’s eyes that it’s surely only a matter of time before Lewis (Kevin Whately) retires, though his boss, Chief Supt Innocent, doesn’t think he will go through with it: “You’re going to miss this when you’re growing carrots and watching Countdown,” she observes shrewdly when he’s up to his neck in the death of a professor. Another body has been found, and a student goes missing. Meanwhile, Hathaway (Laurence Fox) has a crisis of conscience. It’s so serious, he prays for guidance.
