McDonald & Dodds: The War of Rose (S3EP3 ITV Sunday 3 July 2022)



The War of Rose: The worst that lifestyle influencer Rose Boleyn anticipates when she visits Bath’s prestigious Ford & Flynn clinic for a nose job is some backlash from her followers. Al and Mariel, the clinic’s quarrelling owners, are about to get divorced when the routine procedure goes horribly wrong and Rose dies on the operating table.

McDonald and Dodds must distinguish between fact and fiction in a case involving social media and reality. Was Rose’s life truly as opulent as it appeared? Or was everything just a dream?

Season 3 Episode 3

McDonald & Dodds is set in Bath and follows the wildly ambitious DCI McDonald, who is partnered with the shy, modest DS Dodds. While McDonald has transferred from the mean streets of South London to leap up the career ladder, Dodds has happily languished on the shelf for most of his working life.

McDonald is a tough, driven, battering ram of a cop who cracks cases through sheer force of will; Dodds – the tortoise to her hare – is quiet, unassuming and enigmatic. But thrust back into frontline action for the first time in a decade, he discovers a hidden talent for deciphering puzzles. Two contemporary Britons, seemingly with nothing in common, thrown together, boss McDonald and loyal sidekick Dodds forge a rumbustious, entertaining and ultimately – give or take a few setbacks – effective partnership.
