Natural Lies (BBC-1 1992, Bob Peck, Denis Lawson)

Thriller serial Natural Lies sees advertising executive Andrew Fell gets caught up in a sinister conspiracy when he investigates the death of his ex-girlfriend who had discovered the first human case of BSE. The more Fell digs into the case the deeper he finds the conspiracy goes.  When a woman he meets is found murdered it appears he is the prime suspect.

Another fabulous central performance from Bob Peck but the casting overall is superb.
