Ashes to Ashes – Season 3 Episode 7 (of 8)

First UK transmission on Friday May 14th, 2010

The official details…

DCI Jim Keats has almost finished his report on DCI Gene Hunt and his team but he’s still pushing DI Alex Drake to find out what really happened to Sam Tyler, as the timeslip police drama set in the Eighties reaches its penultimate episode.

When reports come in of a disturbance at an African National Congress (ANC) illegal drinking den, Gene goes in, all guns blazing.

The men at the club dismiss the disturbance as nothing, but DI Ray Carling spots blood on the floor and discovers a dead body, leading Gene into a murder investigation.

With the ANC members sticking together and claiming that none of them saw a thing, Gene interrogates a young girl, Tsitsi. It soon seems he’s found his killer but the ANC group leader, Tobias, can’t stand by and watch the terrified youngster be deported and confesses to the killing himself.

Gene and Alex see through Tobias’s lies but attempting to discover the truth leads them into a world of illegal immigration and terrorism.

DCI Jim Keats is played by Daniel Mays, DCI Gene Hunt by Philip Glenister, DI Alex Drake by Keeley Hawes, DI Ray Carling by Dean Andrews, Tsitsi by Estella Daniels and Tobias by Lucian Msamati.
