Episode 2: Tremors

Summary

Part two of two. Sam is suspended from duty and decides to spend some time with his son, while Brooks and Leyton make a breakthrough when they discover who was responsible for the train crash and put the culprit under surveillance. Jake and Kate argue over whether it was right to prosecute Finn Tyler in his fragile mental state. Drama, starring Paul Nicholls and Bradley Walsh.

Review

We’re used to episodes moving at a clip and seeing screen time divided 50/50 between police and the CPS. But this is something different: it’s a more reflective day-in-the-life story about the regular characters, which comes as a shock seeing as this is a series that rarely delves into the private affairs of its main players.

So, here we have Jake opening up to new colleague Kate, Sam spending the day with his son and Ronnie trying to get to know his estranged daughter. Last week’s case continues (a train-crash drama that resulted in a man found hanging in his cell), but it very much takes second place to the personal angst. As an experiment, it works well but the usual tried-and-trusted formula works better.
