In 1996 a gunman opened fire from the top of a multistory carpark killing passersby on Whitewater High Street. Since known as the Whitewater massacre, one of the victims was a tactical squad police officer, Sgt. Nick Patterson, Supt. Peter Boyd's best friend. Patterson's police-issued Glock pistol disappeared and was the weapon used to kill him. The Glock disappeared that day but is found seven years later by two boys some 10 miles from Whitewater. Boyd and his team are assigned to solve the mystery of the vanishing gun as the convicted sniper's solicitor is calling his client's conviction into question. As the investigation continues, the team begin to discover anomalies that may in fact mean the convicted killer, Carl Mackenzie - who always maintained his innocence - may have been wrongly convicted.Written by
It's difficult for Boyd not to get personally involved as he's asked to long I to the case of a gunman, who killed many innocent victims at a Shopping Centre, including an old friend.
There is a very different feel to this episode, compared to those from the first two series, this is more blunt, less jovial, and more antagonistic. Boyd is becoming more unreasonable, there is even. Skittle mistrust for the first time.
I really liked the story, I'm confused as to whether they have the right man, or if the guilty party is still at large.
Fine performances, Sean Pertwee was particularly good, Jason Hughes and Robert Pugh were also very good.
A very strong start to Series 3. 8/10
