Episode 3: The Curate's Egg

Summary

Danny and Steve `welcome' new boss Ted Case into the UCOS office in Sasha's absence, but for all his experience, keen eye for detail and a killer instinct for detecting liars, they aren't as sold on his superstitious quirks. While trying to work one another out, the team treads carefully in the case of a murdered vicar who received racist hate mail in the lead up to his death. With emotions running high, it's up to Ted to pull together his new unit and keep the peace in one of UCOS's most sensitive cases. Starring Larry Lamb, Denis Lawson and Nicholas Lyndhurst.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

So farewell then, Gerry... Though in one sense, of course, Dennis Waterman is always with us, singing that hellishly jaunty “It’s all right, It’s OK/Doesn’t really matter if I’m old and grey” song over the titles. And talking of the titles, they’re all new here, with pride of place for Larry Lamb as the latest addition to Ucos, Ted Case.

Ted is brought in to cover for Sasha (Tamzin Outhwaite) while she recovers from the injuries sustained last week, but the chemistry between Ted and comparative old-timers Steve and Danny is not exactly bubbling, especially when a chance remark from the newcomer makes Steve super-conscious of his appearance.

Plus, there’s a murder to solve: a vicar stabbed through the heart with a letter opener. It could be a hate crime of some sort or the consequence of a family at war with itself. The Tricksters work through the suspects while competing over cakes.
