In the third episode of this sixth series, DCI Vera Stanhope (Brenda Blethyn) and her team, including new recruit DC Hicham Cherradi (Noof McEwan), travel to a remote country house when the woman looking after it is killed.
No sooner have they arrived, than a second body is discovered.
Vera discovers the two victims met the night before their deaths, and goes in search of a connection between them.
Forensics evidence reveals that one was definitely present when the other died – but when no murder weapon or motive can be found, Vera begins to suspect a third party was involved.
