Storyline

Convinced that Kelvin and Ben are the murderers, Sam Ryan pursues her own investigation. She is also concerned that one of the boys may do himself harm after a third boy, who was only peripherally involved, hangs himself. The police are concerned that her involvement may actually taint some of the evidence they have and an angry DCI Peter Ross informs her that he has filed a formal complaint with the Coroner and the Chief Constable over her conduct. This obviously affects their professional and personal relationship. Written by garykmcd

Sam is like a dog with a bone.
10 December 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Sam had seen enough to convince her of the identity of the perpetrators, despite the disbelief and failings of the complacent and near incompetent Police. This feels like the episode where Sam becomes the crime solving Pathologist, she would take on a whole new role from here on, some argued she did too much Police work, others loved her crime solving skills.

It's an intensely sad story, with some horrific Revelations, and a dramatic conclusion. I always thought this was one of the most memorable storylines. I always wanted Sam to tell Peter where to go.

Burton was at her very best here, she was terrific, charismatic and possessing a huge command of the screen.

This was a class act. 9/10
