The team at Ashfordly Police Station are still reeling from Steve Crane's death and not everyone is going to be happy at the arrival of new recruit, PC Rob Walker (Jonathan Kerrigan - Casualty; The Knock; Merseybeat), thanks to his father's activities on the wrong side of the law. Sergeant Merton is faced by some of the toughest cases of his career on his return to work, PC Phil Bellamy comes unstuck with a new romance, and marriage is in the air at the doctor's surgery. There's also a fresh new face at the garage, and Vernon gets particularly creative with his moneymaking ventures, with mixed results. Meanwhile, Ventress and Blaketon have had enough of retirement and set out to recreate past glories by teaming up as private detectives
