The English Defence (Episode #1108H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Nov 22, 2017 -- 8:40 PM

While investigating the murder of 55 year-old interpreter Agnes Bradley, the UCOS team gets a partial DNA match from a teenage boy who once threw a brick onto a motorway as a dare. They interview the boy to see if one of his male relations could be the murderer, only to discover that his mother was raped and they could be looking for a rapist-turned-murderer. Agnes was a chess enthusiast so Gerry Standing and Steve McAndrew interview members of her local club while Sasha Miller and Strickland investigate leads from Agnes's working life, where they meet a Chilean diplomat with a possible axe to grind. Steve McAndrew's elderly father is dying, so he brings him to a London hospice for his last days.

In Vino Veritas (Episode #1107H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Nov 15, 2017 -- 8:40 PM

When a Turkish girl working illegally in Dalston is arrested, UCOS want to talk to her about the unsolved murder of pub landlord Richard Gibson, who died in a fire at his pub The Gladstone in 2009. Richard's dire financial situation led the police at the time to mark the fire down as suspected arson and his death as suicide. What UCOS want to know is why Ayse, his live-in barmaid, disappeared without a trace on the same night.

Romans Ruined (Episode #1106H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Nov 8, 2017 -- 8:40 PM

When a Roman sword is discovered with traces of blood on it, the DNA is linked to an unidentified, headless corpse found near Heathrow in March 2008. The team search a lock-up belonging to the owner of the sword, a body builder called Mark Rix who died of a suspected heart attack, also in 2008. When they find the missing head they start looking for connections between the original murder and Rix's death. Dan Griffin is told his wife Sarah might be discharged from a secure hospital, following a break down several years earlier. This seems like a cruel irony when he's starting to develop feelings for colleague Fiona Kennedy - the forensic anthropologist working with them on their current case.

London Underground (Episode #1105H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Nov 1, 2017 -- 8:40 PM

When the body of film critic Oliver Houghton is found in the Thames (at the point where the Fleet flows into it) Sasha Miller is forced to work alongside her ex-husband Ned Hancock again. UCOS delves into the victim's past and explores his link to the murder of a conceptual artist 20 years previously, while Hancock's knowledge of London's hidden past proves invaluable when a piece of occult footage from the 1970s plunges the investigators into the macabre world of human sacrifice.
