Part one : The team is fearful when Buchan is kidnapped. With Miles taunted by an unknown force in the station, Riley’s infected hand worsening, and Mansell teetering on the edge of self-destruction, Chandler takes the lead in an investigation into the discovery of a runner’s disembowelled body in the sewers. The incident has led some to suspect the return of the Black Swine – a mythical sow that was said to have spawned a litter of mutated feral creatures beneath Victorian London – and others to believe that a subterranean gang of cannibals is running wild.
Part two : The hunt is on to find a gang of suspected cannibalistic killers lurking in the sewers before a missing girl becomes the next victim. The station is under attack and the forces of evil are moving against the team on all sides, and as the case takes a dangerously personal twist for Chandler, he must resort to desperate measures.
Crime thriller, starring Rupert Penry-Jones, Phil Davis and Steve Pemberton.
Well, this is the most gruesome case of this series and I’m not sure I’ll watch the fifth series if there is one ! Yuck !
