Five Days, Series 2 Episode 2 of 5

Duration: 1 hour

While Laurie is determined that the abandoned baby and the body on the train tracks must be connected, her new boss, DI Mal Craig remains sceptical. Evidence surfaces which surprises them both and sends the investigation in an unexpected direction. Meanwhile, baby Michael faces an uncertain future. With his real identity still a mystery, different parties vie to decide his fate.

  • Writer Gwyneth Hughes tells us more about day two.

    Early in an investigation, everyone involved has to use their training and their instincts to work out what are the right questions to ask. That includes the police, the doctors... and me, as the writer! Because as I began to write this second day, I was a long way from knowing all the answers. So DC Laurie Franklin and I are starting work on the mystery together.
