In The Sleeper Under The Hill we say hello to new pathologist Kate Crawford (this means of course that with the departure of Barry Jackson who played pathologist Bullard that there no longer any original cast members left on the show).
The mystery begins when the body of farmer Alex Preston is found in the middle of a stone circle and suspicion immediately falls on a group of druids. Local policeman Sgt Gibson brings Jones up to speed with the case and reveals that the dead man had threatened to make Crowcall Circle inaccessible to the druids, who are led by Ezra Canning and Leticia Clifford.
The dead man’s widow Eleanor is nowhere to be found, but she returns later, claiming to have been staying with friends. However, her phone calls link her to fencing coach Aidan Hardy. Meanwhile, Evan Jago (Richard Leaf, pictured), a poacher and petty thief, attacks Sgt Gibson and disappears after a charity box is stolen from the village pub.
