Catherine Cawood is defiant. In one small yet mighty act she demonstrates to Tommy Lee Royce, malevolence made flesh, that he has no power over her. Not any more.
It's a brilliant scene in another startling, hugely eventful episode from Sally Wainwright (where does it all come from? The woman is amazing). And Royce - James Norton so remarkable as a man whose whole body seems about to burst with violent pent-up fury - is definitely back.
There are many big things going on in Cawood's life, yet Wainwright doesn't forget the small stuff: the minor victories over the “routine” criminals, the laughs over takeaways with her officers, all the things that make Cawood (magnificent Sarah Lancashire) so very human.
As the hunt for the serial killer goes on, there could be links to a busted sex-trafficking ring, while luckless John Wadsworth (Kevin Doyle) tries to solve his mistress problem.
Catherine arrives home with Ilinka, an emaciated Croatian woman who has been rescued after being trafficked and enslaved for four years, and later arrests a lad at a high school who has been caught dealing drugs. Meanwhile John's panic over Vicky's threat spills out into his home life. Crime drama, starring Sarah Lancashire and Siobhan Finneran.
