Storyline

When the body of a worker at a nuclear research centre disappears from the morgue, it smacks of conspiracy to Alex. Was Martin Kennedy killed because he had proof the government was testing neutron bombs? Gene is adamant that murder has simpler motives, and a link to Alex's mother gives him at least one suspect in an investigation that leads them onto dangerous territory. Written by Mark Greig

Quotes

DCI Gene Hunt: Oh dear Lord, if this is a test I fear I may fail. And I thought it'd be the booze or the fags but oh no, I'm going to die in an underground vault in the company of a posh mouthy tart with a head full of brains and the common sense of a grain weevil.
DI Alex Drake: You're not going to die. I can't die. Can I.
[pause, then almost imploringly]
DI Alex Drake: Can I?
DCI Gene Hunt: [looks at her for a long moment] Come here.
[he puts his arm around Alex and she rests her head against his chest]

Into the vault
21 August 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

Slowly but surely 'Ashes to Ashes' is starting to feel less like a spin-off of 'Life on Mars' and more of a show in its own right, which is what every spin-off aims for.

This is another good episode, with some nice moments. It's got quite a complex plot which you have to keep up with, but it's held together by a great performance from Keeley Hawes, and I don't understand the negative comments about her in this role at the time because she's great.

I enjoyed this episode.
