Series 2 - Episode 2



Prison officer David Murdoch is handcuffed to sulky prisoner Jules, but sadly this is no 39 Steps-style romantic adventure and the fugitives aren’t Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll.

Luckily for them their pursuer is DS Susan Reinhardt, who’s always one step behind. Her useless sidekick is no help. “ You should have waited for back up!” she yells when he makes a foolish error. You must know by now, Susan, NO ONE ever waits for “back up” in crime dramas.

As everyone chases around unprepossessing Manchester estates, Susan’s partner pops by to beg her not to move to London to take a new job training police officers. Stop laughing at the back.


After a shocking revelation, Murdoch and Jules are left feeling uncertain of who is holding Lucy. As the pair continue to search for her, the hunt takes them to Jules's hometown of Blackpool. However, DI Reinhardt is one step ahead of them, and has already set up a trap in the hope of ensnaring her prey. Thriller, following the story of a prison officer who is forced on the run with a young female prisoner when his daughter is kidnapped. Starring Philip Glenister, Rosie Cavaliero and MyAnna Buring.
