Review

Newcomers may not be aware of some essential back story that hangs over this episode like a stormcloud. Crown prosecutor Alesha (Freema Agyeman) was raped at the end of the first series, under strange and awful circumstances. Since then, any case involving rape causes her colleagues to shoot nervous glances at her, though she generally carries on regardless — as tonight, when she takes the lead against three teenage boys who had sex with a 14-year-old girl. They filmed it and circulated it on the net (the plot is best avoided if you’re of a delicate disposition). With evidence like that, a conviction seems a formality, but that’s reckoning without the ugliness of a rape trial.

Summary

A murder inquiry is launched when the police are alerted to shocking internet footage showing a teenage girl being attacked and shot. The investigation is hindered by the lack of a body, but the video provides enough clues to eventually put a name to the victim and track down her killers. However, a vow of silence between the defendants means Jake and Alesha face one of their toughest court battles yet.
