Scott & Bailey

Series 4 - Episode 7



Gill Murray has 30 days to go until retirement, but will she make it to the finish line? Well, her final days on the force look set to be jeopardised after Janet puts in a call to Supt Julie Dodson (the always excellent Pippa Haywood) about her boss’s growing dependency on the bottle. Gill finds out about what’s been going on (she’s still a brilliant detective, regardless of the booze) and isn’t best pleased.

The case of the episode involves some strange goings-on at a farm, while Rachel’s tendency to charge in without following proper procedure has far-reaching consequences for the rest of the team.


Janet voices her concerns to Dodson about Gill's drinking, hoping it can be dealt with amicably, so she's unnerved when her observations are taken more seriously than she intended. Meanwhile, just as Rachel feels like she's getting to grips with the sergeant's job, she makes a fatal error that puts Janet and Chris in danger. The body of a man who disappeared 15 years previously is found on the moors. Inquiries lead to a nearby farm, where the detectives encounter something much more sinister than they could have anticipated.
