Episode Summary

EDIT
In Wetherton, Dalziel and company are dealing with a series of robberies perpetrated by a robber they've dubbed "the Micturater"--after he urinated in one victim's kettle. However, Peter Pascoe has nabbed some time off so that he and his very pregnant wife Ellie can visit some old college friends in the Cotswolds. The occasion: to celebrate Colin Hopkins' new book, which, as it turns out, dishes the dirt on the village of Thornton Lacey. When Peter and Ellie arrive, however, they find that Colin's wife and their two other guests have been murdered, and Colin is nowhere to be found. Who is responsible? In the process, Pascoe steps on the toes of the local Superintendent, Derek Backhouse--not exactly a slouch in the detection department himself--and finds out some ugly truths lurking beneath Thornton Lacey's pretty exterior... as well as the solution to the case of the mysterious micturater.moreless
