  • Eager to justify Commissioner Miller?s (James Nesbitt) faith in her, Liz (Brit Marling) presents her vision for Metwork: the force?s very own digital news channel that will rival established outlets and tell it like it is, for better or worse. It could be a game-changer but to Finn (Bertie Carvel) Metwork is a vanity project and he is determined to kill it. His opportunity comes on the eve of the Mayor?s Conference on Policing. With another clash with Deputy Mayor Grant Delgado (Ralph Brown) on the cards, a youth arrested for possession of drugs turns out to be Delgado?s son. Finn leaks the news to trump Liz?s big idea and ruin Delgado in the process. An indignant Liz (Brit Marling) helps Delgado save face unaware that she has rescued Miller?s most powerful enemy. Warwick?s psychological state reaches crisis point after the high-risk pursuit of a gang of armed robbers and firearms trainee Robbie (Adam Deacon) realises he must sharpen up if he is to make the cut?.

  • After sex and drugs with former boyfriend Granger Liz pitches to Miller the idea of Metwork, the force's own TV news channel, but it is ultimately sabotaged by Finn, leading Liz to threaten a walk-out. However her suggestion of a Taser demonstration is approved. The TSG arrest a boy for drug possession and he turns out to be Jason, son of deputy mayor Grant Delgado. Miller is somewhat reluctantly persuaded by his staff to go to town on the story, discrediting Delgado's planned speech in support of the emergency services handing responsibilities to the private sector. However Liz - after avoiding a brush with a sniffer dog - inadvertently advises Delgado on how to turn the situation to his advantage, appearing a victim. Robbie is duped by Matt Coward into appearing to hit a female colleague on film whilst Warwick's reluctance to use fire power comes in handy when he socks an armed robber and TSG's Davina and Clarkey's nervous affair is observed by tactless colleague Nobbo. Miller has his own worries. Years ago he was proclaimed a hero for saving three people. Now it is claimed that there were only two.
