What Remains Episode 1 of 4

When Michael and his heavily pregnant partner Vidya move into a flat in Coulthard Street, they are shocked to discover the decomposed body of a woman in the loft.

With a week left until retirement, Detective Len Harper begins to question her neighbours. He discovers that even though she had not been seen for over two years, nobody had raised an alarm or even noticed that she was gone.

Len must work hard to uncover the secrets of the residents and give the deceased the attention in death she so sorely missed in life.
