The Salcombe Selkie (Episode #107H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 30, 2017 -- 3:35 AM

On a misty morning at the beach, a teenage girl emerges from the sea. Peter and Molly return home from visiting the grave of their daughter Leah and are stunned to find her standing alive and well in their driveway. At the cemetery, Jane and Clint discuss Leah's remarkable return; though they now have unanswered questions about the identity of the person buried in her grave. Jane talks to pathologist George, who blames the mistaken identification on the stress of his wife's IVF treatment at the time. Later Jane learns from Davey that Leah is suffering from a form of amnesia and from the marks on her wrists he thinks someone held her against her will. At her welcome home party Leah has a heated row with her godfather Tim, and then tells Jane and Davey that she recognises a painting on the wall - similar to one she saw when she was held captive. Suddenly, they have a lead...

Capsized (Episode #106H)

Jane, Judith and Beth wake to the news that a cargo ship has washed up ashore and that locals are pilfering the goods. Jane views this as theft but Judith, Mick and Beth believe that this bounty belongs to the community by ancient law and tradition. Detective Sergeant Davey has a hard time keeping order. In the midst of this, a man, Ian Igby, is found dead in one of the containers, apparently looting jewellery. His girlfriend Abby is devastated but her father, Grantham is not surprised. Ian, an ex-con, was a bad lot in his opinion. Jane wants to find answers for Abby. Was Ian the good man that she saw? And what surprising cargo has Mick found?

Gilt (Episode #105H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 30, 2017 -- 2:00 AM

A small group of treasure hunters scour the fields by the clifftops. As the weather worsens Ray suggests they stop, but Errol refuses. The rest are about to leave when Errol's detector beeps - he reaches into the soil and pulls out a gold coin. In The Black Dog, Debs and Anthony suggest sharing the loot equally but Errol insists on keeping the coins with him and reporting it properly as he dials the Coroner's Office. That night, a fearful Errol thinks someone is outside his house. In the morning the police arrive to find him in a locked house, dead in his armchair, still clutching the box of coins. Davey thinks he died of natural causes but Jane's not so sure and takes the box of coins for analysis to Professor Tal Greening who tells Jane that the coins are fakes, before asking her to lunch. Later Jane wonders if Errol was actually 'dead' before he arrived home and her suspicions are confirmed at the mortuary; Errol had been poisoned...

The Fisherman's Tale (Episode #104H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 23, 2017 -- 2:47 AM

Judith and Mick are among the crowds to see local business man PB Bradsaw, and his glamorous wife, Joy, re-open their flagship restaurant. There is great shock when PB is shot dead, by a sniper, in the middle of the event. Davey takes an early lead on the case, suspecting a connection with PB's international business, but Detective Inspector Ben Marshall from the Metropolitan Police is swift to take over the case, undermining Davey in the process. Ben takes a shine to Jane and invites her out for dinner. Jane tends to agree with Mick that the motive lies in PB's personal life, especially when she sees video footage of an interview between PB and a student and notes strong sexual chemistry. Is this flirtation at the root of his murder?

That's The Way to Do It (Episode #103H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 23, 2017 -- 2:00 AM

Local Mayor, Una Drake, has launched an initiative to clean up Lighthaven and Mick and Davey call her a killjoy, especially when she forcibly closes the Punch and Judy stall. That night the Punch and Judy man is found dead on the beach. Jane meets with Una, her daughter and her estranged husband and finds the Mayor rude and abrupt. That evening, Una refuses to meet to talk with her daughter and stands up her husband claiming to have an important meeting but instead we see her in a passionate embrace with Danny, a handsome, second-rate lounge singer. In the small hours Davey and Jane are called to the scene of a second death. Una has been beaten with a bottle of champagne in her hotel room. Will Jane and Davey be able to find the link between these two deaths?

How to Catch A Lobster (Episode #102H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 16, 2017 -- 2:48 AM

Somewhere off the south Devon coast, funeral director Joseph performs a sea burial, watching as the coffin is lowered into the water. Nearer to shore, Coroner's Officer Clint is surfing when he spots an unrecognisable bloated body on the beach. Coroner Jane Kennedy calls an emergency meeting with the local undertakers' association as this is the third body to wash up in a month. Meanwhile Davey takes a statement from Dora who hasn't seen her boyfriend, local petty criminal Kevin Burton, in over a week since he went sailing. Jane and Davey head to the casino where Burton worked and meet the owner, Harvey, who inadvertently reveals that Burton stole some money before he disappeared. Davey is left convinced that the washed up body is Burton's, while Jane's instinct says it's another botched sea burial. Keen to make it interesting, Davey makes a wager with Jane over who buys dinner. With a steak at stake, both are determined to prove each other wrong.

First Love (Episode #101H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 16, 2017 -- 2:00 AM

Jane is woken by a call from Clint telling her that a boy, Steve Kernan, has been found dead at the base of a lighthouse. Jane then finds that her daughter Beth has snuck out of the house and is at a sunrise beach party. At the scene, Davey tells Jane that a text message to Steve's mother, May, suggests suicide but a devastated teenage girl turns up at the Coroner's Office telling Jane that Steve would never have killed himself. Jane talks to Steve's parents and feels that his mother is holding something back. Meanwhile, Davey discovers that Steve's best friend, Matt, is Beth's new boyfriend. Jane tries her best to befriend Matt while investigating Steve's death and searching for the mysterious girl who visited her. The question on everyone's minds is - did Steve jump or was he pushed?
