  • Rachel and Tommy investigate a burning boat...

    This episode had a bit of a twist. Rachel feels sorry for a boy she thinks may have been involved in the burning of a boat - where somebody was killed. Jamie Croft is excellent as Danny Banks - a boy who seems to have lived a tough life and was apparently molested by a man (who owned the boat). But as Rachel and Tommy investigate further, they find that Danny may not be that innocent. When Rachel questions Danny for the last time and finds that he burnt the boat for a trivial matter and he knew that the boy was on the boat at the time - it becomes obvious that Danny Banks has a black heart and Rachel has been fooled by him all along. A good episode displaying the softer side of Rachel.
