She acts fast to prevent him confronting his nemesis, but it results in a crash that jeopardises the future of the entire team. With Jack, Gerry and Brian hospitalised, Sandra's forced to accept temporary help at UCOS from the super-efficient DCI Karen Hardwick, a woman who irritates Pullman on every level.

Sandra goes to a farm and finds the man she wants to interview, a vet, with his arm up a cow's rectum. She goes outside and then needs to wipe manure off her shoes. The vet comes out and Sandra says, "Not exactly Herriot country," referring to "All Creatures Great and Small." Det. Supt. Karen Hardwick, filling in for the injured members of the team, is portrayed by Lynda Bellingham, who played Helen Herriot on "All Creatures Great and Small." See more »

Exceptionally high standard production - one error
19 May 2008 | by bobparrywa-1See all my reviews

The show is an excellent beginning to Series 4 and has the same high quality of story line, production, characters, and locations. The writers have a gift for maintaining the main actors in character as well as the inter-relationships which is so much part of the attraction of the series. I NOTICE THAT the credits at the end of the show were incorrect. They show Karen Hardwick as a Detective Superintendent, which would have made her the same rank as Det Supt Sandra Pullman. In the show she was introduced by D A C Strickland as DCI Karen Hardwick, that is, Detective Chief Inspector. This is how she's correctly described on the cast list on this website! Bob Parry
