Policewoman Marcella Backland wakes in a bath, her head cut and bruised, seemingly unaware of what happened to her. Ten years earlier Marcella had failed to solve the triple Grove Park murders but now it seems that the murderer has struck again and Marcella is keen to close the case. Prime suspect Peter Cullen would appear to have an alibi - he was in prison along with convicted killer Clive Bonn but Cullen, even behind bars, can show his violent side. At the same time hard as nails property developer Sylvie Gibson aims to push through a deal along with partner Stephen Holmes, despite opposition from her children Henry and Grace, the latter having an affair with Jason, Marcella's estranged lawyer husband.

Did You Know?
When DI Rav Sangha arrives at Marcella's home to ask her about her old case, he mispronounces her first name "Marsella" instead of "Marchella" (the Italian pronunciation). But as Marcella's former partner, Laura Porter, is now Sangha's boss, Laura presumably would have spoken to him about Marcella and likely was the one who instructed him to ask her about the case in the first place, and thus he would have known how her name is pronounced.

Why do we even have a department for environmental issues if we're going to completely ignore them?
Because you needed a job, and unlike my daughter, you can't actually do anything.
