For a few moments it appears the writers have taken a break from the personal lives of the two detectives of the title and gone back to some old fashioned murder drama for the third series.
It starts with a shock attack on one of the main characters and then moves to the case of an elderly woman found dead while her ill husband was upstairs. But all too quickly the relationship dramas kick in.
