Episode 2: Tuesday's Child

Summary

The detective investigates the discovery of a young man's body in an area notorious for illicit teenage gatherings, the corpse wrapped in plastic sheeting and having received a blow to the head. Vera follows the trail to a funfair where the victim used to work and a church where he sought refuge, having recently been made homeless. She delves into his family history to discover why he was on the streets when his parents lived nearby, while forensic evidence implicates the son of the vicar, who has a criminal past

Review

Det Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope is particularly thoughtful after a grievous loss. But life, and death, go on – the body of a young man is found at a remote beauty spot, trussed up in bin bags.

The discovery takes Vera (Brenda Blethyn) and her little team to a fair, where they must try to pierce the clannish silence of the fairground folk. Everyone she talks to is shifty, including the victim’s estranged mum and stepfather. Meanwhile, news and photos of the murder have leaked on the internet. “Bloody social media,” says Vera, a devout Luddite.

It’s another chewy mystery that probes damaged lives and guilty, rotting, secrets.
