Tony is prime suspect in a murder case involving an old colleague of his, Rachel, with whom he had come close to spending the night and also the murder of a fellow clinical psychologist. Alex meanwhile is finding all her time taken up with a serial killer stalking prostitutes with two victims already to his name.
Trying to find a link between the killings that would also clear his name Tony puts himself in very real danger from the killer and even as he begins to unravel the clues that could crack the case it may be just too late for him to do so.
Again a hugely unsettling atmosphere hangs over the drama at times and the writers definitely need to get out of the habit of having Tony being either a potential victim or suspect. Robson Green is great though and the show would no doubt have folded long since if he wasn’t in it.
