  • Deakin's under pressure to get results and Smithy continues to befriend Tim.

    Part 2 begins covering similar ground that was covered in Part 1 as CID investigate the Tze's disappearance and Smithy is called in to the soft interview suite when Tim refuses to talk to Deakin.



    The beginning does suffer from being a bit repetitive until Tim's mum is found (bizarrely laying face down on the roof of a building) and the revelations of an affair start to give some answers to the investigation.



    The episode then starts to tread familiar 'Bill' ground by the end as Smithy and Tim are abducted by masked men in the family home and are bundled off in a van. How many times have we seen this happen?



    Despite these issues, the episode holds up fairly well, the side plot of Deakin being put under pressure by Meadows to resolve the case or pass it on is good and you can feel for Deakin especially when Meadows takes over the case from him.



    It's also interesting to note that despite being a mainly Smithy storyline, Shaun Scott receives top billing for this episode for his appearance as Deakin.



    Maybe the weak link in an otherwise strong storyline, the episode still leaves you wanting to watch the last part to find out the resolution.moreless
