  • Two Manchester cops and former colleagues of Genes come down to London to capture a comic accused of stealing from the Police Widows Fund but Gene and Alex are not buying their explanation and know they must find the comic before their colleagues do.moreless

    8.0
    A very funny episode showing Gene's rivalry with an ex colleague from Manchester, DCI Litton which has him using unscrupulous methods to apprehend a comic played by Roy Hudd before Litton does. Camille Coduri who played Rose Tyler's mother in Doctor Who pops up to help Gene get his man.

    When they do find him, it soon becomes apparent that he is scared for his life.

    Alex uses the opportunity to quiz D.I. Bevan about Sam Tyler's death, will she get closer to uncovering what really happened. There is also a show to put on where we see Chris body popping and Ray singing Danny Boy.moreless
