DCI Banks

BBC First Image

DCI Banks returns for its grittiest season yet, with an explosive serial crime story that weaves through all six episodes.

When the victim of a frenzied attack is found in woodland, the team wonder if it’s a random killing or related to the location – a shrine to a local girl who recently committed suicide there. But when Banks uncovers a link to local crime boss Steve Richards, he formulates a theory of his own.

Elsewhere, what starts out as a missing person’s case soon escalates into a kidnap and ransom. And Banks and the team have a painful job finding out how a recent tragedy occurred. While Chief Superintendent Anderson puts pressure on DI Helen Morton to close the case, Banks becomes increasingly certain this is all down to one man – crime boss Steve Richards.
