DCI Banks: To Burn In Every Drop of Blood (ITV 31 Aug – 7 Sep 2016)

Published

on

The critically acclaimed crime drama, based on the novels by Peter Robinson and starring Stephen Tompkinson as Banks, returns for a fifth series with a new two-part story, To Burn in Every Drop of Blood. When a victim of a frenzied attack is found in the woods with his head caved in, at first Banks and the team – DI Helen Morton (Caroline Catz), DS Annie Cabbot (Andrea Lowe) and DC Ken Blackstone (Jack Deam) – wonder if it is a random attack or related to the location, a shrine to a local girl who recently committed suicide there.

When the victim is identified as small-time drug dealer Damon Horsley (Darragh Mortell) and Banks uncovers a link to local crime boss Steve Richards (Shaun Dooley), Banks is convinced that the hitherto untouchable Richards had a part in the murder. As the rest of the team learn more about Damon and more suspects come under the spotlight they begin to wonder if the infallible Banks has got it wrong this time. While Richards is safely in custody, however, events take a tragic turn for the worse when another body is discovered in the woods.

Part 2 (7 September): While the team investigate the death of Damon Horsley, the post mortem of the daughter of crime boss Steve Richards reveals that her death was not a simple suicide – could someone else have been involved? While the violent Richards conducts his own unique brand of investigation, the focus shifts once again when the team discover that despite Kat’s confession, she cannot have murdered Horsley.

The breakthrough comes when evidence is uncovered that puts Kyle Finn, who found Horsley’s body, in the spotlight, and under questioning he reveals something shocking. However, Banks already knows that he is lying – the real murderer has been hiding in plain sight all along.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
