Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 068
AIRED:
DS Debbie McAllister's post-natal depression clouds her judgement when a father tries to protect his schizophrenic son. Her attitude alarms DCI Jack Meadows who enlists Eva Sharpe to help him convince Debbie to keep her baby. PC Nick Klein, recently released from hospital, and PC Ruby Buxton are asked by a local shopkeeper to get a drug dealer away from his corner. But while Ruby talks to the shop owner, Nick takes the chance to swap his hospital medication for cocaine. Convinced their chief suspect Shane Pellow is the serial killer, DCs Duncan Lennox and Danny Glaze decide to check the victims' phone records to see if there is any connection. They discover that at least two of the victims had placed "Lonely Hearts" ads in the local paper. Meanwhile Pellow's girlfriend, having found a bracelet belonging to one of the murdered girls, tells Cass Rickman she also thinks Shane is the killer. Little does TDC Brandon Kane know that while his seemingly sympathetic partner PC Cathy Bradford gives him a shoulder to cry on, she is actually the one who put his ex-wife's vindictive actions in motion. Simon Kitson loses his temper when front desk Robbie refuses to tell Cass Rickman he is waiting, but when he does corner Cass, she tells him it's all over. Meanwhile Cass's concern for Nick Klein's increasingly worrying drug habit turns to jealousy when Ruby Buxton lets slip that he has asked her out for drink. But Cass's worst fears are realised when she finds him doing a line of coke in the station car park.moreless
