This series follows the antics of an eccentric group of ex-police officers brought out of retirement to reinvestigate unsolved crimes. They each had a variety of reasons for handing over their badges and accepting premature retirement. But their hunger to right the wrongs of the past is still strong, and they're willing to resort to the most unconventional methods if it means they can close a case.
Lottery Curse (#1208H) Duration: 54:14 STEREO
A skeleton uncovered in the foundations of a swimming pool is identified as Cheryl - a young, pretty lottery winner reported missing 17 years ago. UCOS's prime suspects are her fellow quiz team mates, who won their lucky windfall as part of a syndicate. But while some have put their money to good use, the victim's boyfriend has fallen on hard times and the media remain convinced he is the prime suspect in her murder. As allegations of affairs, fights and betrayal begin to surface, the team is left to ponder whether money really is the root of all evil. Sasha is set for a night in studying, but the boys have different plans and plot to set her up with Fiona's colleague Adam.
Life Expectancy (#1209H) Duration: 54:05 STEREO
A blood-stained bust is uncovered during some reconstruction work in a cemetery, pointing UCOS to the murder of an alternative medicine practitioner, bludgeoned to death seven years ago. The evidence leads to the pioneering but controversial world of cryopreservation - the practice of keeping "clinically dead" patients frozen in time to extend their life cycle. In a sensitive case, with the watchful eye of their bosses upon them, Sasha is determined that her team won't put a foot wrong. But with suspects constantly running rings around them and the sobering possibility that two perpetrators are still at large, UCOS must go out on a limb if they are to unlock their most difficult cold case yet. Fiona is offered a job too good to be true in Aberdeen, leaving Danny bereft at the thought of losing her. Ted is devastated when he realizes he's lost his lucky cigarette case, and Sasha has an interesting offer from the notoriously cut-throat Assistant Commissioner Cynthia Kline.
The Crazy Gang (#1210H) Duration: 54:05 STEREO
UCOS is threatened with closure following their perceived mishandling of the Henway case. Their final case begins with the bloody murder of a political activist 15 years ago at The Madhouse - a hub for those suffering from mental health issues. Just as the team is getting somewhere, the order comes from above for Ted, Danny and Steve to cease the investigation. But in true UCOS spirit, the boys throw away the rulebook and uncover something much bigger than just a straight forward murder, involving some top officials, a multinational drugs company and signs of a massive cover up. Danny and Fiona's relationship hangs in the balance as she must give an answer to the job offer in Aberdeen and Sasha is pulled into a game of political cat and mouse as she realizes UCOS are merely puppets in Cynthia's game.
(Note: this is the series finale.)
Last Man Standing Part 1 (#1201H) Duration: 1:09:15 STEREO
Gerry is spooked by the discovery of UCOS's latest victim: his old DCI, whose body has lain untouched under a basement for 30 years. As deep-rooted accusations of police corruption and underhand dealings begin to surface, Gerry has to face up to some skeletons in his own closet, and it's a race against time for the team to help before his murky past catches up with him. While he's supposed to be babysitting his grandson, Gerry is convinced only he holds the key to the investigation and leaves the team quite literally holding the baby as he goes AWOL in a bid to uncover the truth.
Last Man Standing Part 2 (#1202H) Duration: 1:09:47 STEREO
With UCOS coming under fire and Strickland in a difficult position, Gerry is forced to go on the run with Danny's help, whilst Steve, Sasha and Fiona search for the proof they need to prove his innocence - despite Gerry remaining tight-lipped about his involvement with dodgy dealings in his old unit. The stakes are higher than ever as the team goes after a big crime family, and it's those closest to Gerry who face the consequences of his actions. (first Appearance of Larry Lamb as Ted Case.)
The Curate's Egg (#1203H) Duration: 54:14 STEREO
Danny and Steve "welcome" new boss Ted Case into the UCOS office in Sasha's absence, but for all his wealth of experience, keen eye for detail and a killer instinct for detecting liars, they aren't quite as sold on his superstitious quirks. While busy trying to work one another out, the team must tread carefully in the case of a brutally murdered vicar who received racist hate mail in the lead up to his death. With emotions running high it's up to Ted to pull together his new unit and keep the peace within a dangerously fractured family in one of UCOS' most sensitive cases yet. Elsewhere, a nervous Danny ends up bloodier than Fiona's Beef Wellington when her parents come for dinner - while Steve sharpens up for his new boss.
The Wolf of Wallbrook (#1204H) Duration: 54:23 STEREO
Ted leads an investigation into the apparent suicide of a city trader, embroiled in the cut throat world of London's financial district back in the eighties. With Ted capitalizing on his acting talents, the team delve deeper into the macho fraternity of "the wolfpack" and soon find a darker side to the debauchery, secret hand signals and all-nighters that bonded the traders together - including a strict hierarchy that might just be worth killing for. Sasha's nose is put out of joint when she returns to a different kind of boy's club and Steve tries to learn some trade secrets on the job, amid his own financial crisis.
