Episode 5.3

It is Detective Sgt Catherine Halliday who is left to investigate the Lakes. Vivien Lake has not only been protecting her husband but might have been involved in some of the abductions and murders.

Halliday finds out about Jeremy Lake's mental condition and there is an abducted woman in peril.

Luther is busy with Alice in dealing with George Cornelius and saving Benny. Cornelius is distraught that his son is dead and he wants vengeance.

Poor old Mark North. All he ever did was have an affair with Luther's wife, now he always seems to get involved in Luther's plans.

There was a nice scene between Schenk and Cornelius, the calm before the storm.

The episode ends with a cracking last scene. That hitman, he was so nice in Inspector Foyle now Paul McGann might have to regenerate!
