Season 6

Chief Inspector Boyd and his team are back to reopen the file of more cold cases, with the help of new recruit Tara FitzGerald.

Season Six sees Boyd and his team delve deep into the culture and traditions of Irish Travellers to investigate the mysterious death of a young boy drowned in a concrete pit.

As they investigate they uncover a gruesome secret buried in the City of London around the time of Black Wednesday and re-visit three unsolved murders once thought to be the work of a notorious serial killer.

With pressure from all sides, not least MI6, can the team shed new light on past cases to ensure that justice is done in the present?
