Although the cases worked on by DI Reid and his col­leagues are grip­ping, it’s their re­la­tion­ships away from the blood and gore that form the core of the drama, so it’s some­what dis­ap­point­ing that Sgt Drake’s sweet-na­tured at­tempts to woo Rose have to be put on a back­burner this week when he re­ceives a blast from the past – his old boss Colonel Madoc Faulkner (guest star Iain Glen) is in Lon­don and he needs Drake’s help to shake up the es­tab­lish­ment who, he be­lieves, have treated the Em­pire’s sol­diers abom­inably. But Drake is em­broiled in a rob­bery case with Reid, and finds his loy­al­ties tested.

Put to the test: The trio re­turn for a new se­ries.
