Dead, dispossessed Jimmy, murdered 40 years ago, might be a ghostly presence in this superior crime drama, but his shadow looms large.
Lives he touched, however briefly, are falling apart as lies are exposed and secrets are brought into the light by Detective Chief Inspector Cassie Stuart. Shifty businessman and thug Sir Phillip Cross (Trevor Eve) has much to feel anxious about, but he puts up a bullish front that fails to convince Cassie’s sidekick Sunny (the excellent Sanjeev Bhaskar): “I sense we’re getting closer [to the truth], don’t you?” asks Sunny.
It’s a fantastic cast, full of big names, including Tom Courtenay as a seemingly bluff old man, and a heart-rending Gemma Jones as his terrified wife.
As the investigation into the cold-case murder continues, the forensic team discovers that the marks on the victim's body are consistent with known gangland torture methods. With this in mind, Cassie and Sunny question Sir Phillip about his involvement with a prominent East End crime family 40 years ago. Did the businessman or any of the shady associates of his youth have anything to do with Jimmy's disappearance or murder? Meanwhile, Eric and Claire's anniversary gets under way. Crime drama, starring Nicola Walker, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Trevor Eve and Tom Courtenay.
