This stunning sixth series of Jed Mercurio’s police thriller is starting to feel like the TV crime drama equivalent of Avengers: Endgame, in the way that he’s bringing back characters from past seasons – and in this episode, myriad plot strands resurface from pretty much every stage of the entire saga. Most excitingly of all, the superb Anna Maxwell Martin (Motherland) returns this week in the role of Detective Chief Superinten­dent Patricia Carmichael, previously seen in series five, when she challenged the integrity of the god-like Superinten­dent Ted Hastings. Her impact is instant and spectacula­r, while the final scene is one of TV’S all-time great cliffhange­rs.
