Feature-length episode. A Sudanese politician vows to go on hunger strike until the UK returns the skull of an important 19th-century ruler to his country. While searching for the article, Boyd is asked to re-open the case of an Iraqi shopkeeper murdered in front of his daughter 20 years ago. A tip-off from a Foreign Office official gives the team a lead - and as it probes further, it seems the two investigations could be connected. Trevor Eve stars.
