Life of Crime: 1997 (S1EP2 ITV 17 May 2013, Ruth McCabe)



1997: It’s 1997 and Denise Woods is now a successful Detective Inspector at Brixton. In an era of ‘cool Britannia’ and ‘Blair’s babes’ she’s ideally placed to climb the ranks, but is struggling to find time for husband Ray Deans and their young daughter. Denise is investigating another rape-murder, this time of a young girl called Lauren Hinds, whose body is found on an estate.
