This series follows the antics of an eccentric group of ex-police officers brought out of retirement to reinvestigate unsolved crimes. They each had a variety of reasons for handing over their badges and accepting premature retirement. But their hunger to right the wrongs of the past is still strong, and they're willing to resort to the most unconventional methods if it means they can close a case.

The UCOS team has some fresh new faces, with feisty Sasha Miller and unorthodox Dan Griffin now established as permanent squad members. Previously a member of the Kidnap Unit, new boss DCI Miller is firm but fair; her warm, inclusive style brings a new dynamic to the group. The second new addition, Dan, has now earned his colleagues' trust with his fierce intelligence and unassuming manner. This season sees the team tackle ten individual cases, while a variety of personal stories weave throughout each episode. Sasha tries to reconcile her relationship with her ex-husband; Dan learns to deal with empty nest syndrome when his daughter leaves for university; and old hands Steve and Gerry both have personal struggles of their own to overcome.
This episode: As Sasha is forced to work alongside her ex-husband when he fills in for Strickland, Gerry returns to his roots in Bermondsey for his youngest daughter's wedding. As a consequence, he is thrown into a case involving the possible murder of an architecture student who is also the grandson of an old friend who has just been released from prison. Back at UCOS, Dan puts the body language skills he has learnt on an FBI course to the test.
