In the second episode of the fifth and final series, after the public humiliation of Frank Thatcher, Shine re-doubles his efforts to capture Reid and Jackson.
Our fugitive policemen (for now) still unable to locate the killer Nathaniel, set about a new plan to draw out and unsettle his brother Augustus Dove. The press, so often the enemy of the police, must now be put to good use.
Meanwhile, Long Susan, never a woman to wait for men to complete their business, engages an old friend to help her penetrate Augustus Dove’s Hackney home, and get one step closer to reclaiming her son.
Pictured are Captain Homer Jackson (Adam Rothenberg), Detective Inspector Edmund Reid (Matthew MacFadyen), Long Susan (Myanna Buring)
