Episode 7: In Vino Veritas

Summary

The arrest of a Turkish girl who has been working illegally leads Ucos to reopen the case of Richard Gibson, a pub landlord who died in a fire in 2009. The original investigation concluded Gibson's death was probably suicide due to his dire financial situation, but the detectives have some questions about the pub's live-in barmaid, who disappeared on the night of the blaze. Could widowed landlady Joanne, pub regular Jason, or the dead man's best friend David, who happens to have a sideline in passing off his British-produced sparkling wine as French champagne, supply them with any answers? While the case tests the team's brain power, Sasha is also keen to raise their fitness levels as she signs them up for a five-a-side football competition. Phil Davis, Niamh Cusack and Tom Georgeson guest star.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The case in this episode isn’t what you’d call tightly wound. In fact it’s as rambling as Gerry after a few too many glasses of bubbly, trying to make excuses to Sasha about why he and Steve are still stuck at a vineyard.

Gerry’s never terribly convincing and neither is this mystery – the murder of a pub landlord – but there are incidental pleasures along the way. There’s Tom Georgeson pretending to play the pub piano, there’s Niamh Cusack as the classiest pub landlady you’ve ever seen and there’s Danny’s unexpected keepy-uppy skills. Yes, unbelievably, Sasha has entered Ucos for a five-a-side tournament. Surely they’re a bit beyond that?
