    Shaz is not her usual cheerful self and the team wonder what's wrong with her. Turns out she wants to leave the Police force. Meanwhile the gang are investigating a series of murders of single women found with scars that resemble the logo of the dating agency called Crescent Moon. Alex decides to use a modern invention, speed dating to catch the killer.

    Philip Glenister's wife pops up as the owner of the Agency who is agast at the idea.

    Loved the scene at the start with Ashes doing own version of Uptown girl, very funny and not to be missed.moreless
