You have to feel for Rachel – she’s spent her whole working life trying to escape a damaged upbringing, but her liability of a mum keeps resurfacing to create fresh problems. The fact that the seedy Sharon is played by the glorious Tracie Bennett means that we, as viewers, always look forward to her reappearances. But our enjoyment isn’t shared by her long-suffering daughter.
Rachel is, of course, trying to get to grips with her new role as sergeant. But concerns about Sharon’s new boyfriend result in her making a mess of the daily briefing. Cue an imperious look from Gill and a subsequent ticking-off that leaves Rachel trying to pinpoint her boss’s retirement date.
Janet is also trying to put distance between herself and her own mother. The thought of ending her days in quiet contentment with Dorothy is certainly spurring her on to give dating another go.
Rachel promised the chaos of her personal life was all in the past, but she is conflicted upon discovering her mother's new boyfriend is a violent domestic abuser. Meanwhile, Janet gets cold feet when she goes on her first date, terrified at the idea of having to impress a stranger. The crimebusters are united in the search for the killer of Rich Hutchings, who is found murdered in the flat he shares with his husband Adam. Barry, their outspoken and violent homophobic neighbour, is the prime suspect. However, as Adam's friend Tim struggles to recall the events of their night out, it seems Barry may be in the clear. Meanwhile, Rachel is horrified when her mum Sharon turns up asking for help. Crime drama, starring Suranne Jones, Lesley Sharp and Danny Miller.
