Life of Crime (ITV 2013, Hayley Atwell, Richard Coyle)

Published

on

Life of Crime was a three-part crime drama starring Hayley Atwell, Richard Coyle and Con O’Neill and was about a policewoman who battles against sexism and prejudice as she rises through the ranks of an ever-changing force. Denise Woods (Atwell) is an impulsive rookie who becomes obsessed with tracking down the killer of a 15- year-old-girl. She accompanies DS Ray Deans (Coyle) to a crime scene to discover the bruised, battered and strangled body of teenager Amy Reid in a narrow lane behind a Brixton nightclub. Having had a previous encounter with the teenager, Denise is determined to bring Amy’s killer to justice.

In 1997, Denise is a successful DI but struggles to find time for her husband Ray and their daughter. Then forensic evidence from a new case is cross- checked on the DNA database and is found to match samples of Amy Reid’s from 1985. The suspect’s original conviction is rendered unsafe and he is released after 12 years in jail. In 2013, things are looking up again for Denise as she is interviewed for the position of superintendent. To her surprise, the case of a recent murder victim flags up the same ‘unknown’ DNA from 1997 and 1985. Denise throws caution to the wind, turning the clock back as she once again focuses on finding Amy Reid’s killer. Only when the case is finally resolved can she heal the rift in her family.
