Series 23 - Episode 7 Lifeline



A seemingly straightforward suicide case is turned on its head when the team learns the dead man worked at a local phone helpline counselling distraught callers. Revelations about the tangled personal lives of his fellow volunteers at the centre give the investigators plenty to work with, but they struggle to piece together a motive for murder. Meanwhile, Jackie worries that she could be a victim of identity theft. Glasgow-set detective drama, with Blythe Duff.
