S20E3 Discovery: Part 1
It's a sunny May bank holiday and the newspapers are abuzz with the news of the disappearance of a young schoolteacher. Investigating
officer DCI Andy Steemson asks Nikki and Jack to examine the small
blood traces, bike tracks and a charred cake in the oven in the house.
This was no planned disappearance.Meanwhile, Thomas is called to the site of the murder of an ex-junkie
and a petty criminal with the opposite circumstances. The body has been
thrown from the top of a flyover and DS Maureen Steele, a police
officer with a drink problem, has been given the case. Bumping up
against Steele's dismissive attitude, Thomas becomes determined to win
justice for the victim - and ultimately forms an unlikely alliance.However when a body is found in a pond off the M25, Nikki and Jack
make the discovery that the deaths are linked. But what is the link
between these two disparate cases?
