Series one: Episode 4: When the body of missing Police Sergeant Debbie Britton (Joanne Farrel)is recovered from Lambeth River on his birthday, Boyd (Trevor Eve)and his team must attempt to discover who would want to kill the pretty and heroic young Sergeant who saved two children during a gun raid and was catapulted to instant fame. Deciphering through a delusional stalker, a publicity seeking fake, and married lover.

Things take a different turn however when the body of Debbies stalker is recovered hanging from Lambeth Bridge shot and with a copy of his expose shoved in his mouth and Boyd, Grace (Sue Johnston), Spencer (Will Jonson), Frankie(Holly Aird), and Mel (Claire Goose) must find the killer before someone else is murdered.
