Marcella Backland left the Metropolitan Police for the sake of her family, only to have her husband leave her. She returns to her job on the murder squad, investigating a case that seems disturbingly familiar to her.
When the body of a young man is discovered in a derelict building, Detective Chief Inspector (DCI) Cassie Stuart is called in to investigate with her partner, Detective Sergeant (DS) Sunil "Sunny" Khan (Sanjeev Bhaskar). Jimmy Sullivan was a homeless boy, murdered in 1976 when the building was a hostel. His diary implicates four suspects; a clergyman, an eminent entrepreneur, a community worker, and a wheelchair-bound husband caring for his wife. Each has a secret to hide. As their lies unravel, the people they love most begin to wonder what else they might be capable of. Nothing in this case is black and white. Can you ever really know the people closest to you? What secrets have they buried?

Since the car was stolen, the car key, which was original, should still have been in the possession of the first owner. It couldn't have been found underneath the body.
Except if the key was stolen first, or the key was left in the car, either in the ignition or above the windshield shade, under the mat, etc., and since that was never established, not a plot hole. See more »
Spoilt by moralising and self righteous preaching!
This was a good idea for a series but unfortunately it was just a vehicle to preach a patronising and opinionated and of course, deluded message which suggests that 99.9% of all British people in the 1970's hated gays and blacks, oh and all priests lie of course according to the wisdom of the Indian detective's character.
Don't be deceived by the high ratings!
It's preachy PC rubbish.
