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.

Mens Sana, Part 1 of 2 (#149Z) Duration: 47:03 STEREO TVPG

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?

Sins of the Father, Part 1 of 2 (#151Z) Duration: 46:26 STEREO TVPG

The paralyzed daughter of local farmers Sue and Jamie Blackstone finds she is able to walk again after being taken to a tree known as 'the healer' in Wetherton woods. However, the joy is short lived when an excavation to determine the tree's integrity yields the remains of a young girl who disappeared more than forty years ago from a children's home. As Dalziel and Pascoe track down the manager of the home, a local church priest - Father Leonard Tibbings - they discover a systematic chain of abuse by Tibbings and the church, which involved splitting up siblings, including identical twins, and making youngsters work for no pay on farmland belonging to the church. As Pascoe attempts to locate the whereabouts of another missing girl, Dalziel is tied up when he bumps into his sister in the nearby village, only to discover that she is dying of cancer - and that his own family has secrets.

For Love Nor Money, Part 1 of 2 (#153Z) Duration: 48:31 STEREO TVPG

Dalziel and Pascoe investigate the death of retired police officer Donald Fitzgerald, who is found bludgeoned to death on a local golf course, in similar circumstances to that of Ted Barnes, a snout who was killed by local rich kid Danny Macer, who was subsequently acquitted of all charges on the same day. Dalziel is determined to prove that his old foe is responsible, but with his deteriorating health, and being knocked down by a hit and run driver, Pascoe is forced to inform the ACC, who takes him off the case and sends him back on sick leave. As a second witness connected with the case is also found dead, and an unsuspecting local is burgled after picking up a vital piece of evidence, Pascoe realizes that the trail to leads to junior DC Dean Sheldon, who had been having a secret tryst with Fitzgerald's daughter, Christine, on the night of his death.

Dalziel and Pascoe investigate the murder of American tourist Nancy D'Amato, whose body is found by squaddies out on a training exercise. As her overbearing husband Gus, a homicide detective from Boston, arrives on the scene, Dalziel is forced to try and keep him in the dark whilst discovering who is responsible for Nancy's death. Meanwhile, an old flame of Dalziel's, DS Jenny Etric, is assigned to help out on the case. As Dalziel tries to rekindle old romances, Spike discovers that Jenny has been less than truthful - her ex-husband is Charlie Stubbs who, in fact, turns out to be one of the prime suspects. As the case begins to unravel, Dalziel is also forced to deal with a sergeant who has been accused of bullying members of his regiment - and suspects he may be responsible for the murder of two soldiers. However, a bigger twist arises when the body turns out not to be Nancy's.
