Legacy - Part One

Series 16 - Episode 7 Legacy - Part One



Professor Leo Dalton must be some kind of superhero because he’s always in the right place at exactly the right time. At the start of tonight’s episode he’s at the opening of a new ward at a hospital. Upstairs a blankly despairing dad, brandishing a shot gun, sits by his dying son’s bedside and switches off the boy’s life support machine before demanding Dalton comes to see him.

Thus begins another thickly bleak mystery involving suggestions of a conspiracy between shadowy establishment figures and a burglar, trapped in an attic, who starves to death. As ever, the pathologists become involved in ways that should not concern them.


Part one of two. The discovery of a teenager's remains halts an eco-housing project, putting Nikki and Jack under pressure to help solve the mystery so construction can continue - and leading to an unexpected romance for Nikki. Meanwhile, Leo is caught up in a dangerous hospital siege when distraught father Tom Hancock holds a ward at gunpoint, insisting his terminally ill son's life-support is switched off. Emilia Fox, William Gaminara and David Caves star, with Mark Womack and Ed Stoppard.
