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.

Prodigal Sons (#1205H) Duration: 54:26 STEREO

With Sasha back in fighting form, UCOS investigate the death of a talented cricket prodigy, a star of the pitch and apple of his father's eye, yet loathed by his teammates. The death was recorded as misadventure but with new evidence pointing to infighting, over-zealous autograph hunters and extramarital affairs, UCOS are soon bowled over by the list of potential murder suspects. Meanwhile, wise to Steve's monetary problems, Danny appoints himself as his personal financial adviser.

The Fame Game (#1206H) Duration: 54:26 STEREO

While Sasha is occupied with an intensive training course, the boys' investigations take them to a lookalike agency, where their top two acts were found dead in an apparent double suicide 13 years ago. In an industry reliant on the art of the illusion and their suspects intent on giving them the run-around, Ted, Steve and Danny are convinced there's more to this case than first meets the eye. Steve can't contain his excitement when their enquiries take them to the door of one of his football heroes - but his glee is short-lived when he remembers an expensive promised birthday gift. Sasha tries to instill discipline in her son Alex, and Danny and Fiona end up in a stalemate over their living situation.

The Russian Cousin (#1207H) Duration: 54:14 STEREO

UCOS investigate the murder of a private investigator, who is stabbed through the heart in a suspected robbery gone wrong. The answers may well lie with the victim's last three cases, but it'll take the whole team's expertise to crack the codes within his mysterious notebook. The movements of a rare collectable stamp 'Russian Cousin' could hold the key to the whole investigation - if only UCOS could track it down. Steve rents out his flat to a pair of demanding and hot-tempered Italians while Ted is determined to avoid a trip to the doctor for fear of coming face to face with his own mortality.

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.
