Last week we were left with a cliff hanger when a late night visitor pays a visit to rape victim, Trish Winterman’s home. However, as Ellie and Hardy are on high alert, it doesn’t take long to discover what was taken, and having seized it for examination, what they find could change everything.
After such a captivating first series, series three is following in a very similar fashion. Throwing as many shady and suspicious characters into the mix, the writers are keeping us guessing before – I can only speculate – revealing the attacker to be the character kept right under our noses the whole time.
This week, unsurprisingly, Ellie and Hardy are following a new trail and bring another suspect in for questioning. In a search of this suspect’s premises, Ellie finds devastating new evidence linking him to the crime.
Back at the station, DC Katie Harford confronts Ellie and Hardy with an uncomfortable truth about her role in the investigation and finally, the detective duo’s new suspect gives them his detailed version of events, but when they dig deeper they begin to doubt his story.
