Patrick Kennedy and Tamzin Merchant star in this two-part wartime crime drama set during the Blitz. Loosely based on the diaries of Molly Lefebure, secretary to the Home Office pathologist and modern forensics pioneer, Keith Simpson, the story follows young, up-and-coming pathologist Dr Lennox Collins (Kennedy) as he investigates the dark deeds committed under cover of the wartime devastation. At odds with his superiors and the bobbies on the beat over his adoption of the latest cutting edge developments in forensics, Collins, aided by his bright young reporter-turned-assistant, Molly Cooper (Merchant), soon begins to suspect the police have the wrong suspect when they investigate the ritualised murder of several young women.
