Episode 3: Haunted

Summary

Brooks is forced to reopen a 14-year-old case when a dying crack addict confesses to the murder of teenager Amanda Bennet, a crime for which her father Simon (guest star Tim McInnerny) was originally convicted. Brooks becomes torn between the belief of his former partner Bernie Rawlins and mounting doubts over the ability of current colleague Casey, and the case unearths the possibility that more ghosts from his drinking days will come back to haunt him. Starring Bradley Walsh and Paul Nicholls.

Review

A robber on the run is hit by a car and, dying in hospital, makes a whispered confession to Ronnie. He says he murdered a teenage girl 14 years ago, a case where Ronnie secured the conviction of the girl’s father. The fact that the latter is played by Tim McInnerny is good news; he adds gravitas to the tale, in a hard role to play.

He’s not the only good guest star: Tom Georgeson plays Ronnie’s old partner, from back when Ronnie was an alcoholic. And memory lane is never a happy place, where Ronnie’s concerned. “The more we look into this,” he sighs, “the more I’m certain we got the wrong bloke.” So who is the right one?
