Eddie is profoundly deaf, and working with an interpreter prompts Detective Superintendent Standing to start learning sign language himself in the hope of reconnecting with his deaf cousin Danny. Meanwhile, Pullman clashes with Annabel's old boss Peter Hammond, and starts to wonder if Minnie's conspiracy theory could be right after all.

The Curate's Egg (#1203H) Duration: 50:00 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: 50:00 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.
