Oxford professor Miranda Thornton is found dead in her bedroom, clutching a newspaper article about a wealthy businessman who is proposing to buy up much of her college’s land for housing development. It’s all a bit odd, but as she was desperately lonely and deeply embarrassed that her revealing online dating video had been put onto a subversive media blog, it’s initially assumed that she committed suicide.
Fresh from an uncharacteristic action-man arrest that has dramatically raised their profile in the press,
and Hathaway politely investigate the death anyway. They discover that not only are there a lot of rude, arrogant people in Oxford who have no respect for the law, but also that – shock, horror – the media can be disrespectful, too.
With luck, learning about the deceased professor’s empty life will encourage Lewis to approach pathologist Dr Hobson before new-cop-on-the-block DI Peterson (Jason Durr) beats him to it.
A professor feels humiliated when her internet dating video is leaked onto a website and watched by her students. The next morning she is found dead, the victim of what appears to be a straightforward suicide. However, Lewis is not convinced and digs deeper, identifying several suspects including the site's founder - but as he and Hathaway get closer to the truth amid a rising death toll, they find their personal and professional lives dredged up online for all to see. Guest starring Roxanne McKee (Game of Thrones) and Toby Stephens (Die Another Day), with Kevin Whately and Laurence Fox.
