Review

Cholera breaks out in the refugee camp — which seems to require lingering shots of medic Georgie Laine putting a surgical mask over her perfectly made-up face and lovingly disinfecting her equally pristine boots to some heartstring-twanging soundtrack.

But while she and fellow medic Ruby tend to the sick and dying, corrupt cop Chowdhrey is being encouraged to dish the dirt on the drug traffickers. They in turn go to some pretty gruesome lengths to intimidate him resulting, eventually, in what’s actually a quite exciting ambush and car chase. Maisie’s quick-thinking certainly puts the rest of 2-Section to shame. They are painfully slow to provide back up.

Summary

As the camp is hit by a cholera epidemic, 2 Section are tasked with protecting Inspector Chowdhrey who is now a key witness in bringing down the leaders of the drug gang. Horrified when a gruesome message is sent demanding his silence, the Inspector fears for his family's safety and refuses to cooperate. When Georgie suspects that Barsha knows more than she previously let on, she hatches a plan to persuade Inspector Chowdhrey to make a full statement. However, it's not long before disaster strikes.
