Gerry (Dennis Waterman), the
woolly mammoth, gives us his considered views on vegans, feminism, hippies and students. He doesn’t hold with any of them, and sexual discrimination in particular is a “load of b******s.”
His ire is stoked when the Ucos team reopens the investigation into the death of a homegrown terrorist, a man who detonated a bomb during an anti-capitalist march in the 1980s. He blew himself up by mistake, but the man’s daughter receives an enigmatic note, insisting that he was murdered.
It’s an unexpectedly involving and accidentally highly topical story, benefitting from a terrific array of actresses of a certain age (hurrah!) – Clare Higgins, Charlotte Cornwell and Kika Markham – all playing former Greenham Common protestors.
There’s a nice meshing of the new line-up, too, as Sasha (Tamzin Outhwaite) and Danny (Nicholas Lyndhurst), both bereft in their own way, find an understanding.
The team looks into the death of a terrorist 30 years previously after his daughter receives an anonymous note claiming he was murdered - an investigation that takes them right back to the Greenham Common anti-nuclear protests. Meanwhile, Sasha agrees to go for dinner with her ex-husband Ned, which he is hoping will lead to a reconciliation. Tamzin Outhwaite and Dennis Waterman star, with guest appearances from Barnaby Kay, Charlotte Cornwell and Patricia Potter.
