Life Expectancy (#1209H) Duration: 54:15 STEREO

A blood-stained bust is uncovered during some reconstruction work in a cemetery, pointing UCOS to the murder of an alternative medicine practitioner, bludgeoned to death seven years ago. The evidence leads to the pioneering but controversial world of cryopreservation - the practice of keeping "clinically dead" patients frozen in time to extend their life cycle. In a sensitive case, with the watchful eye of their bosses upon them, Sasha is determined that her team won't put a foot wrong. But with suspects constantly running rings around them and the sobering possibility that two perpetrators are still at large, UCOS must go out on a limb if they are to unlock their most difficult cold case yet. Fiona is offered a job too good to be true in Aberdeen, leaving Danny bereft at the thought of losing her. Ted is devastated when he realizes he's lost his lucky cigarette case, and Sasha has an interesting offer from the notoriously cut-throat Assistant Commissioner Cynthia Kline.

The Crazy Gang (#1210H) Duration: 54:05 STEREO

UCOS is threatened with closure following their perceived mishandling of the Henway case. Their final case begins with the bloody murder of a political activist 15 years ago at The Madhouse - a hub for those suffering from mental health issues. Just as the team is getting somewhere, the order comes from above for Ted, Danny and Steve to cease the investigation. But in true UCOS spirit, the boys throw away the rulebook and uncover something much bigger than just a straight forward murder, involving some top officials, a multinational drugs company and signs of a massive cover up. Danny and Fiona's relationship hangs in the balance as she must give an answer to the job offer in Aberdeen and Sasha is pulled into a game of political cat and mouse as she realizes UCOS are merely puppets in Cynthia's game.
