A Sweeter Lazurus Part 1 of 2 (#131) Duration: 46:55 STEREO TVPG

After receiving a bullet wound at the end of last series, Dalziel has been on sick leave. But months of inactivity are driving him up the wall, so he's relieved when the new Assistant Chief Constable allows him to cut short his convalescence and return to work - even though he mistakes her for a strippergram at their first meeting. It almost makes up for the doctor's ban on booze, an order he finds particularly trying when his first case leads to a brewery.
Dalziel and Pascoe are investigating a double murder at a women's refuge when they come across a young woman who says she is Abbie Hollingsworth. Impossible, says Dalziel, as Abbie, the heiress to a local brewery, was murdered 19 years ago when she was 13. Her body was never found, but Dalziel jailed Gus Mullavey for the killing. Ever the sceptic, Dalziel assumes that "Abbie" is an imposter, but when he discovers bad blood between the two Hollingsworth brothers who now run the brewery - and Abbie increasingly appears to be the real thing - he starts to believe he's jailed an innocent man.

Cunning Old Fox Part 1 of 2 (#133) Duration: 47:18 STEREO TVPG

Oscar Wilde's famous comment on the hunting fraternity ("the unspeakable in pursuit of the uneatable") sums up Dalziel's opinion as he and Pascoe are called in to investigate the death of a young woman thrown from her horse during a meet of the exclusive Harlesdon Hunt. The victim is Georgina, the popular fiancee of Henry Crayford, who runs an equestrian center with another hunt member, Amanda.
At first, it looks to be just a tragic accident. But when the Master of the Hunt, James Marsham receives an anonymous letter saying that the death is a welcome indictment of fox hunting, Dalziel scents foul play. Were the local hunt saboteurs responsible, or was it one of the members of the close-knit hunt?
DC Shirley Novello - an accomplished rider - is sent undercover to investigate and unearths a disturbing atmosphere of jealousy and resentment within the hunting set. There are soon a number of suspects: Darringer, Georgina's spurned admirer, eccentric hunt follower Birdyce, Amanda who was having an affair with Crayford, or perhaps even hunt saboteur Susie Hobbs, Marsham's rebellious daughter. However it takes another murder and an explosion at the stables before Dalziel discovers that the answer lies in the past.

Foreign Bodies Part 1 of 2 (#135) Duration: 46:06 STEREO TVPG

Dalziel receives an enticing postcard from an old flame, Florence Stockton, who is staying in Scarborough. The seaside resort is bracing at the best of times and especially in winter, but Dalziel decides to take a break and visit her. The reunion is going well until news of an embalmed body washed up on the beach at nearby Whitby cuts short all thoughts of love.
The man turns out to be Florence's first husband. But what has the body on the beach to do with the Head of War Studies at Wetherton University, Professor Winkler; former East German Stasi member, Jurgen Habichte; Japanese tourist Mr Kawabata and Dracula's black dog? As a spate of equally puzzling and bizarre deaths follow, Dalziel and Pascoe are drawn into an intriguing murder mystery and Florence has more confessions to make.

Above The Law Part 1 of 2 (#137) Duration: 48:11 STEREO TVPG

Judge Jerry Chance is in the middle of a high-profile drugs trial and under 24-hour police protection when he is brutally shot down near his home. It looks like a professional job and the accused man in the trial - Ken Barbour - is immediately the police's prime suspect. However, Barbour tells them that Chance was about to make a ruling which would invalidate the case against him. The last thing he wanted was the judge's death.
Euro-Parliamentary candidate Christina Chance is distraught at her husband's murder, even though Dalziel discovers that she has a lover, Peter Deller, and that Chance had homosexual liaisons. But as Dalziel and Pascoe start to dig deeper, they enter a complex world of political intrigue and financial wheeler-dealing and discover dubious connections between Christina Chance and millionaire businessman David Ransom.
With Special Branch snapping at their heels and keen to take over the investigation, the detective duo are under pressure to get a result. Meanwhile, Pascoe's estranged wife, Ellie, is in Wetherton to try to persuade him to make a fresh start with the family in London.

Walls of Silence Part 1 of 2 (#139) Duration: 48:14 STEREO TVPG

Alec Jordan, a 17-year-old schoolboy (a gifted cellist and the pride of his school) is found drowned in suspicious circumstances. He took a blow to the head, and his bloodstream reveals a heavy dose of 'Roofies', the date rape drug.
For Dalziel, this case is an emotional minefield. Ten years ago, he was involved in a road accident in which he knocked down and killed a young woman in front of her husband and son. The woman was the dead boy's mother. Now he has to deal with Alec's father, whose grief is overwhelming and whose bitterness toward Dalziel is stronger than ever.
Feeling a special sense of responsibility, Dalziel digs deep into Alec's school, determined to find the source of the drug which seems to have sent him to his death. In the process he ruffles many feathers, particularly those of the headmaster, Ken Crowley, who is battling against the odds to pilot the school through a crucial OFSTED inspection. Increasing evidence also suggests that Alec was obsessed with the accident which had killed his mother. While Pascoe and the team probe the school - exposing a hotbed of vice and guilty secrets, Dalziel himself becomes obsessed with Alec, knowing that the boy's mind holds the key to his death.
