Another three two-part episodes from the ITV drama series based on the crime novels by Peter Robinson. Stephen Tompkinson stars as the tenacious and stubborn Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks, who unravels a string of disturbing murder mysteries aided by his feisty and ambitious young assistant, DS Annie Cabbot (Andrea Lowe) and DI Helen Morton (Caroline Catz). In this instalment the trio investigate the murder of a drug dealer who died near a shrine to a teenager's suicide. The episodes are: 'to Burn in Every Drop of Blood: Part 1', 'to Burn in Every Drop of Blood: Part 2', 'A Little Bit of Heart: Part 1', 'A Little Bit of Heart: Part 2', 'Undertow: Part 1' and 'Undertow: Part 2'. Synopsis DCI Banks returns for its grittiest season yet with an explosive serial crime story that weaves through three feature length episodes. To Burn in Every Drop of Blood: When the victim of a frenzied attack is found in woodland, the team wonder if it's a random killing or related to the location - a shrine to a local girl who recently committed suicide there. But when Banks uncovers a link to local crime boss Steve Richards, he becomes convinced that this is his chance to finally nail the hitherto untouchable criminal. A Little Bit of Heart: What starts out as a missing person case in Leeds' Chinese community soon escalates into a kidnap and ransom and then finally murder. Banks and his team are plunged into a world of protection gangs and the exploitation of immigrants before the discovery of a dark family secret reveals the true motive behind the crimes. Undertow: Banks and his team struggle to put personal feelings aside as they investigate the stabbing of a fellow officer. As they attempt to nail the culprit, Banks' actions become increasingly reckless, forcing Chief Superintendent Anderson to put him on gardening leave. With Helen made Acting DCI, Banks finds himself operating on the other side of the law, using his years of experience to crack this most harrowing case.
