The dedicated police officers doing the dirty work are recovering alcoholic DS Ronnie Brooks (Bradley Walsh), who substitutes booze with food, and the younger, smoother DS Matt Devlin (Jamie Bamber), who can come on strong. Backing them both to the hilt is DI Natalie Chandler (Harriet Walter). Once the crooks are caught and the evidence has been gathered, the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) takes over. Fighting furiously for justice week in week out is Senior Crown Prosecutor James Steel (Ben Daniels), who is supported by the younger but equally committed Alesha Phillips (Freema Agyeman). They're kept in check by CPS director George Castle (Bill Paterson), who steers his office with a steady hand. (imdb.com)

05: Buried - The remains of a small boy discovered in a wall by workmen are identified as those of Tommy Keegan, who disappeared twenty-five years earlier. A neighbour, Edward Connor, a suspected paedophile, was arrested then but released for lack of evidence. Brooks and Devlin believe that Julia Mortimer, who used to play with Tommy when they were children, is subconsciously suppressing her memories of the events of the time, and, under regression hypnosis, names her estranged father Vernon not only as the killer but as a paedophile himself who molested her too. The court trial leads to angry exchanges between Julia and her father. Which one is telling the truth?

06: Paradise - An arson attack on a Turkish social club kills seventeen people. The perpetrator, Nazim Kazaba, is caught as part of the device he used went off in the blast and got embedded in his leg. He claims that Ediz Kilic, a respected Turkish businessman, is also a people smuggler who forced him to silence the clubbers, illegal immigrants ready to expose his activities. Amid charges of racism Steel jeopardises his friendship with a Turk from his student days to get information to bring Kilic down.

07: Alesha - Brooks and Devlin investigate when prosecutor Alesha Phillips claims that gynaecologist Alec Merrick has got frisky with her but conflicting reports from previous clients make arrest impossible. She returns to see Merrick, who drugs and rapes her, which she captures on spy camera, but at his trial his barrister claims entrapment and the jury take his side. But it is not over yet.

08 (S201): Samaritan - A police officer is killed in a shoot out with a drug dealer. Based on the testimony of another dealer, Brooks and Devlin must determine whether back up was slow to arrive and left the officer to die because he was gay.

09 (S202): Hidden - A young girl goes missing on the way to her guitar lesson. A week later, she is found murdered, and CCTV footage leads detectives to a viable suspect for the kidnapping. (imdb.com)
