Storyline

Inspector Pascoe's grandmother dies, and he sets out to discover the truth about his grandfather: why he disappeared during WWI. Pascoe is falsely told that his grandfather was a deserter but continues his quest. An animal rights group, in a seemingly unrelated incident, attacks a pharmaceutical firm's labs. The leader (Amanda Marvell) escapes to the woods nearby and falls over a skeleton. Dalziel is attracted to Marvell but relentlessly sets out to solve the murder of her disciple, though her Jeep is involved. Flashbacks are used to show the threads linking the two cases. The skeleton is found to have arsenic in the bones; Marvell's brother's death in Africa is suspected not to be accidental; Dalziel discovers the theft of experimental data from the lab, showing it not to have a purely beneficent medical mission in Africa; and Pascoe proves his grandfather was innocent.

a suspenseful episode
10 July 2003 | by lenoSee all my reviews

I have seen three episodes so far (Child's Play, Under World and this one) and I must say that this one was the best episode I've seen. It is unlike those other episodes suspenseful and exciting (in stead of dramatic and weepy) and it really got me guessing what happened, although you could see the ending coming a bit to early.. All in all a good detective with very good acting by the always nagging Dalziel and a good supporting cast.
