Episodes 1 and 2

When Jack and Nikki enter a high-security prison to investigate the suspicious death of an inmate, the case brings up disturbing memories for Nikki.

The victim’s cellmate is Scott Weston, the student responsible for a mass shooting she witnessed ten years earlier.

Nikki becomes increasingly convinced that Scott is their prime suspect, but Jack worries she is not following the evidence.

Two former prisons were used in the opening episodes – HMP Gloucester, Barrack Square, Gloucester and HMP Holloway, Parkhurst Road, London.

Episodes 3 and 4

When a swimming instructor is found murdered in her flat, trace evidence from the scene identifies two suspects, including the victim’s ex-boyfriend, a former police officer. It’s the first case for new recruit Adam, and his eagerness to impress causes friction in the team. As the investigation uncovers a tragic story about the need for love and family, Jack is confronted with secrets from his own hidden past.

The National Trust Birling Gap and the Seven Sisters, as well as Charing Cross Sports Club were used for filming.

Episodes 5 and 6

Nikki, Jack and Adam are brought in to investigate the murder of a surgeon in a hospital.

Filming took place at Hemel Hempstead General Hospital and Mistral Building, Thames Valley Park Drive.
