One Guilty Deed, by Mark Greig

Thursday 9 August 2007, 8pm, BBC One

Lynley (Nathaniel Parker), Havers (Sharon Small) and DC Winston Nkata (Shaun Parkes) are close to bringing down organised crime boss Michael Shand (Tom Georgeson). But then their informant Roger Pollard is shot dead. His body is found on the south coast and it looks like a contract killing - a single bullet to the forehead. However, they soon discover there's more to the shooting than meets the eye. Why was Pollard on the south coast when he was supposed to be under police protection in Manchester? And what leads can Carly Baker, who works on a local caravan site provide?

Guest stars include Shaun Parkes as DC Winston Nkata, Tom Georgeson as Michael Shand, and Esther Hall as Carly Baker.

Natural Causes, by Peter Jukes

Thursday 20 July 2006, 8pm, BBC One

Since Lynley's (Nathaniel Parker) arrest and suspension for threatening a suspect, Havers (Sharon Small) has been without a partner. She begins a new case in Kent alongside the heavily pregnant, no-nonsense Detective Inspector Fiona Knight. Together, they investigate the murder of Edie Covington, whose body has been discovered in a local lake. Back in London, Lynley attends a disciplinary hearing to determine whether he can return to work. Following the hearing, Lynley begins to help Havers and Knight with their investigations. But, as the case unfolds with the discovery of another body and a kidnap, will Lynley's unofficial involvement jeopardise his efforts to be reinstated?

Guest stars include Liza Tarbuck as DI Fiona Knight, Adrian Rawlins as Tim Sumner, George Costigan as Owen Harcourt Baines, Saskia Reeves as Eileen Humbolt, and Nicholas Gleaves as Dr Simon Wilson.

Chinese Walls, by Ed Whitmore

Thursday 3 August 2006, 8pm, BBC One

When aspiring lawyer Emily Proctor is found axed to death in Hyde Park, Lynley and Havers are drawn to the chambers of human rights lawyer Tony Wainwright and his clerk Hester Reed.
Wainwright's passionate temper and a concealed affair with the victim seem to place him as the main suspect, but when Emily's double life is exposed, Lynley and Havers enter a world of internet porn and a family haunted by secrets.

Guest stars include Samuel West as Tony Wainwright and Lindsey Coulson as Hester Reed.
