God's Waiting Room (Episode #402)

KQED Plus: Fri, Oct 17, 2014 -- 7:00 PM

Sandra Pullman's private and professional worlds clash when her mother Grace suffers a fall and needs care. Mother and daughter do not share a close relationship, so when Grace temporarily moves in with Sandra, sparks fly. However, the two do agree that Grace can no longer live on her own and they set about finding a suitable nursing home for her. On the surface, Whitemead seems perfect, until one of the residents, Leonard, confides that the death of another elderly resident, his fiancee Maggie Newley, a year previously, was covered up and passed off as suicide. Despite hearing this and to Sandra's dismay, Grace sets her heart on moving into Whitemead's. Since the alleged murder doesn't fall under her department's remit, but wanting to act in the best interests of her mother, Pullman is forced to turn a blind eye to her team's suggestion of an unofficial undercover investigation. Jack Halford reluctantly agrees to play the role of elderly relative and manages to secure a place for himself at the home. Like a thorn in Halford's side, Gerry Standing takes great delight in playing the concerned son visiting his old dad and in an ironic twist, neurotic Brian Lane, gets to play his doctor. But it soon becomes clear that the calm facade of the home belies jealousies and petty crimes. With Maggie's family and Leonard insisting the she would not have taken her own life, the team discovers a link to her prescribed medication and that she had a love rival at the home, Pru Saunders. But would a dotty old woman really commit murder for love?

Casualty (Episode #401)

KQED Plus: Fri, Oct 10, 2014 -- 7:00 PM

Hell-bent on avenging his wife's death, Jack Halford is prepared to risk everything to kill the man responsible, Ricky Hanson. As Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman becomes aware of the dangerous situation Halford has put himself in, she has to act fast to prevent him confronting his nemesis, resulting in a crash that jeopardizes the future of the entire team. With Gerry Standing, Brian Lane and Halford hospitalized, Pullman is forced to accept temporary help at UCOS from the super efficient DCI Karen Hardwick, a woman who irritates Pullman on every level. Threatened by a new face in the office and desperate to prove that they are still a crack team, even from a hospital bed, the boys need a case. So when their consultant Dr Finlay McKenzie mentions the suspicious death of a patient on their ward ten years ago, they seize the opportunity to reinvestigate, hoping it will hold the team together.
