What happened in the Christmas special?
The macabre Christmas special featured Chambers and Keating struggling to solve a difficult case, when a groom was found murdered with the wedding rings in his throat on his wedding day. The festive episode wasn’t all so grim, however, with a birth and moments of comic relief ensuring the right balance of intrigue and laughs.
What can we expect to see in episode one?
Sidney receives a series of anonymous phone calls, which he realises may be linked to a series of murders in which the victims were all important community figures killed by someone who leaves dead birds as a grisly calling card.
The threat forces Sidney to question whether he can reconcile his relationship with Amanda and his calling as a vicar. Leonard bonds with Hilary as she cares for her dying father, while Geordie’s investigation of the killings leads him to a mysterious home for people with disabilities.
