    The team are tasked with investigating the murder of 18- year-old Emel Yilmaz, a pregnant girl from Turkey whose murder has been made out to resemble all the hallmarks of a suicide. The team initially suspect her husband, but after the discovery of a long-term affair with a jealous co-worker, Rachel's intuition and memory provides the final clue to nailing Emel's killer. Meanwhile, Rachel is angry at being dumped by married lover Nick, and Janet is approached by an old school friend, Geoff, to reopen a cold case - the murder of his six-year-old sister more than twenty years ago.

    The team are tasked with investigating the murder of housewife Susan Metcalfe, who was followed home from the theatre, brutally raped and then dumped in the boot of her own car in the middle of nowhere. House to house enquiries throw up a possible lead when one of Rachel's interviewees tries to run from her questioning.

Many of the team were certain that Stelikos would be found guilty on a sole murder charge, but doubt DCI Murray's actions to throw a rape charge into the mix. When Nick is revealed to be the defending barrister, he uses unofficial information given to him by Rachel, and Rachel is horrified when he escapes conviction. Stelikos is later found dead, and it's up to the team to find his killer. Meanwhile, Rachel suffers a miscarriage.

    The team investigate the disappearance and possible murder of Gary Birkinshaw, after one of his work colleagues reports him missing. His wife, well known porn star Vicky Birkinshaw, is arrested on suspicion of her husband's murder - but the evidence fails to implicate her in any way, and instead points towards her shady new boyfriend and a paedophile who has been having a relationship with her daughter. Meanwhile, Rachel's professional life hangs in the balance when DCI Murray finds out that her relationship with Nick Savage could have put the Stelikos case at risk.

As Rachel investigates a possible lead, she is narrowly missed by a fast-moving car, which veers past her, knocking down an innocent girl and crashing into a parked vehicle on the side of the road. She discovers that the driver was an associate of Carl Norris, and that the incident was unquestionably linked to the discovery of Nick's affair with a member of the jury.

As the team make an arrest, it becomes clear their investigation has just scratched the surface. Meanwhile, Janet throws her husband, Ade, out of the house following a row with her mother, and Rachel's estranged brother Dominic turns up on her doorstep.

    Secrets (Part 2)

At the time of the original investigation, Gill helped catch the perpetrator, Jeremy Leach. Leach was convicted for the rape and murder of four women, but now he is claiming that he is innocent.

Meanwhile, Rachel catches her brother Dom in a compromising position with another man and advises him to go for an HIV test.

    Sacred Trust
    The team investigate when the body of eight-year-old Dylan Nichols is discovered in a wheelie bin, four days after his initial disappearance. But, as they search for the paedophile killer, they are unaware that the culprit has placed himself at the heart of the child's grieving family. Meanwhile, Dom's HIV test result is negative, but in his relief, he does something stupid which results in Rachel missing her sergeant's exam. Sean thinks that he and Rachel are destined to be together, while Janet is persuaded to give things a go with Andy, but finds herself having doubts over their future.

    The team investigate the brutal, racially motivated murder of a 21-year-old taxi driver, who was killed after picking up fare outside a nearby public house. The trail leads to Darren Walcott, whose mobile phone records show that he telephoned several taxi companies before choosing his victim. Meanwhile, in an interview with Geoff Hastings, Janet learns much more than she bargained for, leaving Rachel to believe that the diaries containing information of his victims are buried in his mother's grave. Meanwhile, Sean pre-books his and Rachel's wedding without her consent.

    The team investigate the murder of teaching assistant Susan Bishop, whose body is found clothed in a policewoman's fancy dress outfit, and her face completely covered in green mould, indicating that she has been dead for some time - despite the fact that the pathologist gives a time of death only two to three days previously. Gill suspects that Susan's lover may be responsible for her death, but there is no shortage of suspects. Meanwhile, Janet confides in Gill about Andy's behaviour after a public outburst in front of the team, and Rachel struggles with Sean's latest surprise.

    The team investigate the murder of 18-year-old student Leon Foster, whose death looks like a typical gang killing at first glance - but the discovery that he was sexually mutilated raises suspicions that his murder could be domestic. Investigating a tight-knit group of friends from his estate, the team discover that the motive behind the murder may be a 'Line- Up' involving a twelve-year-old boy. Meanwhile, Sean surprises Rachel when he tells her that he has been in contact with her estranged mother, and Andy punishes Janet by sidelining her on the investigation into Leon's death.
