Buried - Part Two

Series 4 - Episode 4 Buried - Part Two



The conclusion of the two-parter is one for devotees only. There’s a surprising shortage of surprises and a tense-making lack of tension. “That’s another hour of my life I’ll never see again,” says the balding copper on a stakeout at one point, and we know how he feels.

The fisherman who witnessed last episode's murders has gone into police protection. But because witness protection can’t “get their act together”, Banks and co are responsible for keeping him and his daughter safe from the ex-Army hitman who is on the loose – a situation we sense might possibly backfire.

Meanwhile, the family of the dead woman aren’t out of the spotlight either: that lawyer husband has something to hide.


Part two of two. With Geoff now a marked man, he and daughter Evie are put under watch at a hotel while the search for Mullen is widened. However, when the suspect follows Evie's boyfriend to the location and sets off the fire alarm, he draws Geoff and Evie outside. Meanwhile, Banks believes loan shark Hargreaves is behind the hit on Marcus, and manages to extend his stay in the cell, despite having very little evidence against him. The conclusion of the two-part case, starring Stephen Tompkinson.
