For Love Nor Money, Part 1 of 2 (#153Z) Duration: 48:09 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.

A Game of Soldiers, Part 1 of 2 (#155Z) Duration: 47:01 STEREO TVPG

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.

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.

The Price of Fame, Part 1 of 2 (#157Z) Duration: 45:18 STEREO TVPG

Pascoe and Milligan are forced to investigate the suspicious death of a holiday village entertainer after Dalziel is suspended for his conduct during an interview with a kidnapping suspect. Pascoe manages to persuade the ACC to take Dalziel back as the SIO on the case, instead of DCI Derek Hores, who Pascoe believes is not up to the job. As two bodies are found relating to the first killing, Dalziel realises that an intimate web of a fraudulent agent, perverted manager and a diamond heist worth A?2 million are the three key pieces in solving the case. Meanwhile, as he's still stewing over the kidnapping of student Penny Wilson, he manages to persuade the ACC to let him continue with the case on the basis that he manages to achieve a result with 48 hours.

Great Escapes, Part 1 of 2 (#159Z) Duration: 49:43 STEREO TVPG

On a stormy night out on the Yorkshire moors, Dalziel's car breaks down on the way back from a charity do, leaving him stranded for the evening. As he finds the comfort of a local B&B, his peace is shattered by the discovery of the body of local barmaid Sally, having been murdered and dumped. Meanwhile, category A prisoner Charlie Walker has managed to escape from police custody, and is determined to prove he wasn't responsible for the murder of his wife, Kate, which he was convicted of - although no body has ever been found. As the pieces begin to fit together of the night of Sally's death, Dalziel uncovers a ring of dirty Yorkshire businessmen tied up in the dangerous world of dogfighting, and the 7-year-old frozen body of Kate turns up at the same crime scene. As the final piece of evidence slowly falls into place, Dalziel heads to a showdown.

Home Truths Part 1 of 2 (#141) Duration: 49:25 STEREO TVPG

A young Sikh woman, Simran Ghataura, is shot dead in a deprived inner-city area, where tensions between the Asian and white communities are running high. The murder sparks riots, with coverage from an unusually aggressive media. Called in to investigate, Dalziel's job is made no easier by the obstruction of local Detective Superintendent Devon, whose reference to Dalziel and his team as "ignorant country plods" doesn't endear her to him.
Although the shooting was apparently motiveless, local politics appears to be the key. Simran was the daughter of Bobby Ghataura, a wealthy businessman keen to win a place on the local council. He and Conservative councillor Tommy Collingwood had been in open conflict, with allegations of racism flying on all sides. Collingwood's son, Paul, is a known racist. A witness comes forward and Tommy's other son, Matthew, is suddenly a prime suspect in the murder hunt. But Matthew, politically opposed to his father, astonishes everyone with a surprising revelation.
Meanwhile relations between Dalziel and Pascoe are at an all-time low. Pascoe has been having a secret affair with a young Asian pathologist, Sally Shetra. He also hasn't told his boss/housemate that he is expecting a visit from his daughter, Rosie. No longer able to trust Pascoe, Dalziel sends him home, transferring much of his attention to PC Surjit, the local community Sikh constable who has been helping him on the case. Could this be the end of a beautiful partnership?
