Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) is visited by a former adversary from his old stomping ground of Manchester. Journalist Jackie Queen (Ruth Millar) had several run-ins with Gene in the past and this time she has a surprise in store – she’s pregnant with his baby. Not one to miss out on a story, she’s also investigating the disappearance of northern teenagers that have arrived in London. She wants help to find one in particular – her niece Rachel (Kirsty-Leigh Porter) has run away and Jackie fears she’s been lured into the seedy underbelly of the capital. Alex (Keeley Hawes) is suspicious of Jackie. Also, with the threat of a transfer haunting Gene, Alex is desperate they get to the bottom of the corruption she believes is in the police force. But as the investigation progresses, evidence leads them to a man named Jarvis (John Bowe). On the surface he’s a legitimate business man, but they’re convinced he’s responsible for the murders of young girls. With an expensive lawyer and his smug demeanour, Jarvis appears untouchable and, worse, seems to have protection from within the Met itself. As the pressure mounts to find Rachel, the team is forced to acknowledge the force is being poisoned from the inside. Gene’s loyalty is tested as he and Alex are forced to put a stop to it, however messy the consequences. Episode Four airs Tuesday, June 1st @ 10:00 p.m. EST/PST on BBC America.
