As a result of a staff shortage, DI Lewis returns to the force temporarily. Newly promoted DI James Hathaway and DS Lizzie Maddox investigate a case of arson on a private hunting ground owned by Tom Marsten and neurosurgeon Alistair Stokes. They had purchased the grounds from Gillian Fernsby who still lives there in a small house. She is only one of several suspects however when Stokes is subsequently found shot. Junior surgeon Simon Eastwood had a difficult relationship with Stokes after he complained that Stokes had consumed alcohol before he performed an operation on Rizwan Nooran leaving the lad a vegetable. It's rumored that Eastwood may have been having an affair with Stokes' wife Erica. Nooran's parents now care for him. Both Marsten and Stokes had also been receiving threats from animal rights activists. Marsten is arrested after the police learn he had recently increased the partners' life insurance and ballistics confirms it was Marsten's rifle that fired the fatal bullet. ... Written by garykmcd

[first lines]
Alistair Stoke: I will not tell you that it gets better. It doesn't. Thirty years in and I see that...
Lorraine Fernsby: Started already!
Alistair Stoke: What?
Lorraine Fernsby: "You will always feel afraid. You should always feel afraid."
Alistair Stoke: Well, they haven't heard it before. My point is that surgery is violent, and the day that stops frightening you is the day you should give up your job.

The Wood and the Medical Community
24 March 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

After all of the obituaries in the previous season, Lewis has left the grave and gone back to work. It didn't take much to talking to convince him. Hathaway has been promoted and is now his boss (as if that made any difference). The younger man is a workaholic and refuses to delegate authority, but Lewis is determined to straighten him out. Lewis walks in on a young woman who has been doing the backup job and who is not allowed to think for herself. The case that is first dealt them is an arson, but it is not long before a renowned surgeon is found dead. Of course, we knew it had to be a murder case to be interesting. We meet several people, primarily those living within a four hundred acre plot of land. Guns start being the issue.
