Review

The Ucos team don’t do fresh bodies, but they will consider refrigerated ones. They’re called in when the remains of a missing police computer expert are found to have been smuggled in to the morgue of a teaching hospital. He died of natural causes, so why has his body been hidden? Brian may know how to sharpen up a photo taken on a mobile phone, but some technology is beyond him. So a young, hairy e-crime expert is called in, and sharing the office with him as well as new boy Steve is too much for some. Perhaps it’s the spontaneous Rod Stewart-singing that puts people off.

Summary

The body of a missing computer expert turns up in a hospital morgue under a false name, so the team reopens the investigation into his disappearance. The dead man worked for the Metropolitan Police, giving him access to a great deal of sensitive information - added to which, he was in contact with a group of online hackers. But he died of natural causes - so why was his body hidden, and by who? As the seasoned detectives unravel the mystery, Brian struggles to accept Steve as the new Ucos member, forcing Esther to intervene. Guest starring Sarah Smart and Alex Jennings.
