A young woman is found dead in the rockery of an Oxford college, which is an occupational hazard in
territory, of course, as the city appears to be routinely littered with corpses.
She’d been taking part in the trials of a psychotropic drug run by an aloof and punch-able psychiatrist (Douglas Henshall) who does what all academics do in TV murder mysteries — everything to make himself look like the prime suspect by behaving as a caricature of police-despising superciliousness.
DI Lewis (Kevin Whately) and Hathaway (Laurence Fox) stroll around lovely gardens in this 2011 episode as they puzzle over the killer’s identity.
Hathaway and Lewis struggle to determine whether a death during a college-based clinical trial for a new antidepressant was murder or suicide, and receive little assistance from the institution's evasive psychiatric professor. A second student's demise then leads to the revelation that the trial's participants are all operating under the influence of a mind-altering drug, and that the lines between love, obsession and madness have become dangerously blurred. Guest starring Douglas Henshall (Primeval), Lucy Liemann (Rev) and Thomas Brodie Sangster (Love Actually).
