Shadow Play: A street-sweeper and a lowlife, Lycett makes many court appearances, often charged with lewd acts but acquitted for lack of evidence. Out of court, he obsesses about his missing daughter-the only reason, he claims, he's so interested in children. Back in the offices of the Crime Prosecution Service, files keep disappearing, and Helen's clerk, Rose, is sleeping her way through the young police recruits. Helen's romance with Bailey falters when he comes close to exploring other options.

Starring: Amanda Burton, Martin Freeman, Conor Mullen.
