As Laura recounts the details of her two year old ordeal Ellie and Hardy suspect her attacker also raped Trish and Mayfield, who has tenuous links to both women, is arrested. His alibi does not check out but Beth's supervisor Sahana tells the police of another, historic rape, which clears him and Leo's girlfriend Danielle gives him an alibi - at a price. Trish feels the need to tell as unsurprised Cath that she had sex with Jim, ending the friendship and the marriage whilst Ian's partner Sarah also throws him out and he breaks into Trish's house. Hardy has a domestic problem of his own but a new piece of evidence comes to light whilst Mark traces Joe Miller to Liverpool. Written by don @ minifie-1

Town Without Pity
18 January 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Focuses on Mark and Ed. There is so much going on in this episode. We find out the connection between Ed and Trish. Even if Trish was never a willing participant. Ed is a man full of pain and unresolved anger. Ellie continues to deal with her son's obsessions with pornography. The taxi driver again becomes an issue. The most poignant is that Mark finally has his meeting. It is dealt with in such a painful, distressful way and is so sad. There seems to be so much venom in this town. The partygoers have their own plans. Ed seems almost too obvious a choice in this investigation.
