Storyline

When a decomposed body is found hidden in the wall of an old factory building, Sam Ryan concludes he was murdered. He is eventually identified by his ex-girlfriend Selina Thomson as Marcus Saul, who had simply disappeared one day some seven years earlier. There has also been a break-in on campus and drugs have been stolen. The Dean asks Leo Dalton to speak to some of the students on the issue, but he's not quite sure what he can do.

The Body in the wall.
20 December 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Workmen discover a body buried in an old factory, Sam concludes from the PM that the man was murdered. The former girlfriend of the dead man seeks help from Sam.

Quite a good episode, but as with the previous, it somehow lacked a little bit of sparkle. A plot that somehow would have fitted better on Waking the Dead, but it's still a good watch.

Sam has been made a somewhat more prickly character, didn't she used to have a bit of a sense of humour?

I'd say Harry is developing more so than Leo. They didn't give Leo the best start.

Dramatic, just lacking a bit of something. 7/10
