DCI Banks Previous Broadcasts

Undertow (Episode #116H)

KQED Plus: Fri, May 19, 2017 -- 8:00 PM

Banks and the team begin the painful job of finding out exactly who was responsible for co-worker's death, an incident that has affected all their lives. Following dogged police work, they locate and close in on a suspect, only to be thwarted when it's proven there's no way they are to blame. While Chief Superintendent Anderson puts pressure on Helen to rein in Banks and close the case, Banks becomes increasingly certain that this is all down to one man - crime boss Steve Richards. Banks' obsession with nailing Richards sends him over the edge.
