The possibility that her unborn child's father may be Adam Perrin, a colleague with whom she had a brief fling, adds to Helen's concerns. There is some good news though when pathologist Phil Hendricks arrives from Manchester with new theories about Abigail's murder, giving a possible lead that implicates Gavin Sweeney, though it proves to be a dead end. Then teenager Aurora "Rory" Harcross comes forward to give Stephen an alibi for the murder. This also gives Helen unpleasant memories from the past when she and Linda were sexually abused by Rory's grandfather and leads her to admit her affair with Adam to Paul. From her talk with Rory, Helen works out who abducted the two girls and is able to save Poppy and unmask the killer. However, her private life is now less easily resolved. Written by don @ minifie-1

Episode 2
18 July 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

After a promising start, Helen and Paul are joined by a pathologist friend Phil who speculates why the body might had been partially burned to allow the bugs to get inside.

Helen is not popular in her hometown, she gets spat on and memories of the past are making her volatile especially with Paul. She confesses to past sexual abuse from a friend of her father's and how her friend Linda was also targeted. She also tells Paul of an affair she has been having which leaves him angry.

Doubts are also raised about the guilt of the accused, Stephen Bates. A young woman comes forward giving him an alibi. However the woman is also the granddaughter of Helen's abuser that pushes Helen over the edge a bit.

I did not know this story was just a two parter as the story got quickly wrapped up. The other abducted girl was discovered but I am rather wary how rapidly the real culprit was found out.

Still Helen decides to come to terms with her own past abuse and decides to talk to her superiors about it.
