By the way, this is yet another one of those episodes where Banks is sort of pushing the envelope, wanting revenge. And a tragedy occurs that is even closer to home. Find us on and , or. Sian's father Brendan had also visited the murder site and when Richards' alibi is blown apart Banks, desperate to nail him after an earlier failed conviction, triumphantly arrests him. I found them at the library and took a chance. Once again, three children die. Executive Producer: , , ,.
If you like British crime series, I recommend this one. Although I did warn you that this sort of thing never turns out well. The crime stories in these episodes are excellent, but I found the love longed Banks annoying with his relationship with Annie, appearing like a love sick teenager that, in my opinion, detracted from the overall stories. Banks wonders if the motives could be connected to his past. Cabbot took maternity leave at the start of Season Two.
Banks and crew find a connection to a guy that Banks try to get years earlier. Written by A young guy gets a call and goes to the impromptu shrine of a girl who hanged herself. I won't give away the ending, but I'll say this--wish it would have ended on a happier note. But, at least it had a definite ending with most of the major issues resolved, unlike some series that end with a non ending. There are also young people being manipulated or directed by evil parents. Nobody knows who the father is, and there is a great deal of speculation among her fellow officers. At the same time Helen discovers that Kat could not have murdered Horsley since, at the time of death, she was with Kyle - though it is Alice who provides Banks with the means to solve the case.
My only real complaint is the lack of Blu-Ray. Although the tension between Banks and Cabbot is palpable, they continue to inch closer to the identity of the killer. All three are back for Season Five. Set in the industrial North of England. I saw it coming, but was still emotionally torn by the storyline and Bank's reaction to the loss of one of his team rang true to me.

His personal life is also in shambles having been divorced from his wife -- who is remarried and pregnant -- and his estrangement from his children, with whom he barely has a relationship. . My major problem with the show is that there was entirely too much fraternization between the ranks, especially in Season Three. Without giving everything away, one of Banks' coppers doesn't last through the end of the season.
Sorry to see it end. I have watched the complete series. I would have thought the lower ranks were off-limits to Detective Chief Inspectors. My apologies to the Chamber of Commerce, but this is really dreary real estate. However, all is not what it seems when the post mortem suggests Kat's death isn't a simple suicide - could someone else have been involved? Banks' prior brief sexual history with Cabbot is a great source of friction between the two. Kat is found dead after admitting to Horsley's murder but Banks is not convinced she died by her own hand though her former therapist, Kyle's mother Alice, claims that had lately been depressed.
Instinctive police-work ensures the victim is rescued and it appears the case is closed — until an unexpected turn of events escalates into a full on murder investigation. As a final insult, the writers chose to end the series with brutalization of the most interesting character. Filmed in and around the city of Leeds in Yorkshire. Cabbot came back as a single mother for Season Three, but D. While his old team struggle, Banks operates for the first time on the other side of the law, using his years of experience, wits and wisdom to secure the all-important break-through.

The case is further complicated by the fact the victim, a wealthy businessman, came to Leeds after fleeing persecution from his birth country of China. Then he hears that Kat has become the next victim at the shrine.
