Episode 1: Survivor's Guilt

Summary

DS Sam Casey, a young officer with a strong sense of justice, is brought in to investigate the shooting of Devlin outside the Old Bailey, and is surprised to learn the gunman was specifically targeting police officers. The case sees the whole team emotionally spent, with the trial itself at risk of being derailed by a politically driven defence lawyer (Colin Salmon) with an axe to grind. Crime drama, starring Bradley Walsh, Freema Agyeman and Paul Nicholls, who joins the cast.

Review

Bad news for Jamie Bamber fans: his character DS Devlin hasn’t survived the bullets in the chest he took at the end of last series. His replacement, DS Sam Casey, is played by similarly bland-but-handsome Paul Nicholls, so the dynamic of the series looks safe. Sam is brought in to investigate Matt’s death, which has left a tormented Ronnie teetering on the edge of a whisky glass, after years as a reformed alcoholic.

It’s a typically clockwork procedural but Ronnie’s anguish adds a new dimension. As for newcomer Sam, the jury’s still out.
