Things look up a little when Free’s magnificent Wishing Well bursts on to the soundtrack, but it doesn’t last long before we are plunged back into this workaday cop show.
Probationary WPC Jane Tennison (Stefanie Martini) is leaned on by her colleagues to lie to internal investigators about what she witnessed during the raid last week. Her conscience nibbles at her a little bit, but it’s up to the dull DI to flatter Jane into doing what’s best for the team by gazing meaningfully into her calf-eyes.
Jane’s mum, who’s routinely thin-lipped with barely concealed disapproval at her daughter’s career choice, is disturbed that Jane might be “having relations” with her boss after he pays a late night call.
The mysterious Oz is brought into the station for questioning - but the suspect has been badly beaten, and hot-headed detective Gibbs is on the hook for the attack. The case takes an unexpected turn when another body is found in the canal, leaving Bradfield wondering whether they are looking at a double murder, while Tennison's integrity is tested when the DI asks her to make a decision that could have huge consequences for her career. Clifford Bentley and his sons start digging from the cafe to the bank, but they risk getting caught when David fails to notice the police outside.
