Bermondsey Boy (#1101H) Duration: 54:27 STEREO

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.

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.

Romans Ruined (#1106H) Duration: 1:00:06 STEREO

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.
