STRIKE – THE CUCKOO’S CALLING | BBC1 9PM
The scheduling of this series has struck us as a little odd – we know it was a bank holiday last week, which can throw things off a bit, but airing two episodes in one week and then making us wait for the third and final part? That’s some strange pacing.
Anyway, Strike and Robin are closing in on Lula’s killer, and Robin retraces Lula’s last known movements by visiting one of her favourite boutiques. There, she learns that a staff member overheard a conversation hinting at who Lula was due to meet that evening – and it was even recorded for posterity.
Meanwhile, Strike is quite sensibly wondering what impact Lula’s search for her biological family was having on her adoptive one – and Robin finds herself at a career crossroads.
