7:30pm – Saturday, April 7 on ABC1
When Peter Offord (Richard Graham) is arrested in connection with a warehouse robbery, DNA tests prove his innocence, but link him directly to an unnamed vagrant who was strangled on a tube train 15 years earlier. This prompts UCOS (Unsolved Crimes Open Squad) to reopen the case.
Having never known the identity of his father, Peter Offord is left confused and angry when Pullman confronts him with the revelation. His mother, Iris, died in 1995, the year before the vagrant was killed, and while she had never named the young man she fell pregnant by at 18, she had also never given up hope of being reunited with him.
Offord reluctantly admits that he hired Roger McHugh (Keith Allen), a notoriously dodgy private investigator known to UCOS, to find his father, but to no avail. While Pullman, Standing and Halford pursue Iris’s snooty sister Janice (Sylvestra Le Touzel), and the man they believe to be the victim’s brother, Charles Allenforth (Peter Davison), Lane questions the homeless community – with disastrous consequences.
