Soft Touch, Part 1 of 2 (#161Z) Duration: 50:04 STEREO TVPG

The autopsy of a Russian national who is found dead face down in a lake reveals that someone tried to murder him two years previously - with an AK-47 bullet which became lodged in his spine. Meanwhile, the owner of local factory firm Matty's Shoes is found bludgeoned to death in his office. Dalziel initially suspects Stevie Earle, a man who suffered severe acid burns during an accident at the factory four years ago, for which he never received any compensation. And then there's the man's youngest son, who appears to have disappeared from the face of the planet, even relinquishing control of his nightclub after racking up a massive debt. As the list of suspects continues to grow, the man's estranged wife makes a confession, saying she was responsible for his murder - but which one of her sons is she protecting? The involvement of a Russian businesswoman only complicates matters.

Secrets of the Dead Part 1 of 2 (#143) Duration: 47:59 STEREO TVPG

Dalziel is in the small Yorkshire village of Stenby, attending the funeral of Fran Lock, the district nurse. Fran was married to Sergeant Ted Lock, a highly respected and long-serving police officer at Dalziel's police station. Their son, Mark, is also has followed in his footsteps and is a detective sergeant on Dalziel's team. Dalziel has his own private grief: unknown to anyone else, he and Fran were once lovers.
When the local solicitor is found murdered, Dalziel investigates (without the help of Pascoe, who is off to Florida to visit his wife and daughter). However, a letter addressed to him, written by Fran on her deathbed, gives him something else to think about. According to the letter, Mark is his son. A stunned Dalziel is suddenly fascinated by his young officer and promotes him to the role of Acting Detective Inspector.
What Dalziel doesn't know is that Mark is already deeply compromised: for years he has known something scandalous about his mother and the local GP, Dr. Silwood, and has been concealing his knowledge to protect his mother's name. But Mark's secret proves fatal, and Dalziel is devastated. He'd drink himself into oblivion - if Pascoe hadn't returned unexpectedly from America to persuade him to stick with it.
Dalziel homes in on Dr Silwood, and soon discovers the truth. It also seems clear that Silwood will stop at nothing to protect his reputation, but he is a slippery customer and Dalziel cannot prove anything - until Ted Lock decides to take his own revenge. The result is another tragedy.

Truth & Consequences Part 1 of 2 (#145) Duration: 49:19 STEREO TVPG

A skeleton is unearthed in the former mining town of Thirksby. The discovery revives unwelcome memories for Dalziel, who was stationed there during the miners' strike of 1984-85.The conflict was bitter and even now policemen are not welcome. Dalziel does not seem surprised when the skeleton is identified as that of George Brierly, a police officer who worked undercover during the strike. Dalziel tells his team that Brierly was bent and disappeared after the theft of the local miners' strike funds. But if Brierly was murdered - and didn't take the money, who did? If he can find the money, Dalziel will probably find the killer.
Pascoe is sent back to Wetherton to research police records of the strike, while Dalziel takes lodgings in Thirksby and investigates the strike leaders. Most now seem broken men, including Ron Harvey, the former miners' treasurer. Only Tom Bennet, who has built a successful construction company, and Sheila Harvey, Ron's estranged wife, seem to have done well for themselves. Dalziel meets silence and hostility wherever he goes, but begins a promising relationship with the attractive editor of the local newspaper, Susan Murray.
Meanwhile, Pascoe stumbles across what looks like evidence of shady dealings by the police - including, it seems, signs that Dalziel himself may have been involved in a cover-up. When Pascoe makes his suspicions known, he provokes a row with a furious and defensive Dalziel. Relations between them are still soured when another corpse turns up - Tom Bennet. And there's still the question of the skeleton and the missing funds. And whether Dalziel himself has something to hide.

The Unwanted, Part 1 of 2 (#147Z) Duration: 49:21 STEREO TVPG

Martin Wilkie, a soldier with the local army regiment, is found dead in a pig shed on the wedding day of one of his closest colleagues. Pascoe is immediately taken off the case, as with it being his home town, and also having known most of the witnesses - and even the prime suspect - Dalziel is forced to play it by the book. Meanwhile, a hospital appointment has Dalziel running scared, so much he can't even admit to Wieldy that there's something wrong. As the murders continue to rack up, including the bride and groom, and a local immigrant who escaped capture from immigration control, Dalziel uses the clues to work out just who is responsible for the deaths of four people. And Pascoe is forced to choose between his childhood crush and his father, when she turns out to be the killer - and his father the next possible victim. And then, things get worse when Dalziel has a heart attack.

73-year-old Mrs. Vannstone is found dead in a seaweed bath at a local spa. With Dalziel on a month's sick leave following his heart attack, it's left to Pascoe to deal with the case. Things look pretty straight forward, until the nurse who found the body supposedly commits suicide. Deciding it is time to return to work, Dalziel books himself a week at the spa in an attempt to find out the real goings on. And when another grisly murder occurs, he realizes that certain people claim to be somebody they aren't - and the truth begins to unravel in more than one horrific way for Pascoe, as his latest floozy turns out to the prime suspect. And when all of the events are connected to the death of a man at the spa two years ago, Dalziel is forced to step in and take charge of the situation. Is Pascoe naive enough to let the prime suspect get away just to have a little bit of fun, or will his head rule his heart?

The Dig, Part 1 of 2 (#167Z) Duration: 53:31 STEREO TVPG

An archaeological dig on the proposed site of a motorway bypass reveals the remains of a 6-month-old body buried beneath the surface. While Dalziel sets his eyes firmly on the forensic pathologist investigating the case, Pascoe decides to do a little digging, and uncovers an entangled web involving a crooked councillor, bent surveyor and a highly dangerous team of workmen, who after a spat in the local pub, go crazy and decide to completely destroy the dig site, setting fire to archaeological equipment, attacking the volunteers and using a JCB to crush their vehicle into a pulp. But surveying the carnage the next morning, the body of one of the workmen, Tarzan, is found in his caravan bludgeoned to death. And DNA puts recently released convicted murder Clive Jacobs right at the scene, although he insists he is innocent. Meanwhile, Lateef makes a breakthrough on the unidentified body.
