Monday 15 August
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE

The UCOS team reinvestigate the disappearance of a leading scientist when his wife receives a number of anonymous emails from someone claiming to know what happened to him, as the drama continues.

UCL physics professor Phillip Mackenna disappeared on a train when travelling to a conference in Paris in 2004. CCTV shows him leaving his seat to go to the buffet car but he was never seen again. Mackenna was working on a revolutionary cold fusion project when he went missing. Gerry Standing reveals that such a project, if successful, could be worth millions.

Mackenna's wife, Bea, insists her husband would never have sold out on the project, despite being approached many times by large organisations.

As the team digs deeper, shadowy Whitehall figure Stephen Fisher warns DAC Strickland off the case.

Amanda Redman plays Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman, Dennis Waterman plays Gerry Standing, Alun Armstrong plays Brian Lane, James Bolam plays Jack Halford, Rebecca Front plays Bea Mackenna, Anthony Calf plays DAC Strickland and Tim McInnerny plays Stephen Fisher.
