D.C.I. Vera Stanhope (Brenda Blethyn, below) delves into the tangled past of an extreme sports fanatic, Gideon Frane, when he plunges from a Northumberland cliff top in a ball of flames. An anonymous letter spelling 'Burn in Hell' and a scan of files reveal a litany of stalking complaints and intimidation against an ex-girlfriend, Izzy Rawlins (Jodie Comer). Forensics are quick to link her hairdresser friend, Kit (Kevin Trainor), to the letter. He admits to confronting Gideon days before his death but denies murdering him. As witness to the crime, Vera is convinced she holds the key but her memory is drawing blanks.
