Scott & Bailey

Series 3 - Episode 6



I know I am not obliged to say anything, unless I wish to do so, but I’m starting to feel I should ask for some tension in Scott & Bailey. Yes, I love all the procedural stuff, but I need a bit of peril. In episode one we were teased that Something Significant would happen to a member of the Murder Investigation Team, but it’s a long time coming.

Tonight’s crime-of-the-week is another chance for the squad to show off their grasp of detail and investigative technique when a woman complains that her father was abused and killed in his care home. It’s a typically deliberate Scott & Bailey inquiry, as the team carefully interviews staff and residents. Meanwhile, Scott and Bailey’s home lives are always in the background as Rachel (Suranne Jones) once more ponders her pointless marriage.


Dorothy becomes concerned her grand-daughter Taisie is being influenced by Rachel, while Janet is mortified when Gill berates her for inappropriate behaviour toward young sergeant Rob. The detective duo are sent to investigate the death of a man in a nursing home after his daughter complains about the level of care he had been receiving. Will they find any evidence of foul play? Detective drama, starring Lesley Sharp, Suranne Jones and Danny Miller.
