Law & out of order – Sam gets a bit too close to victim Lucy. Pics: ITV
The last series ended with the shooting of Matt Devlin (Jamie Bamber). This Friday series six of Law & Order: UK concludes with another highly charged story (again written by Emila di Girolamo) in which Devlin's replacement, DS Sam Casey (Paul Nicholls) gets a little too involved with the victim of what could be a serial attacker. A police forensics technician is stabbed to death in her home. When the same attacker appears to strike again, the victim survives and is able to identify the man, a taxi driver. Rest assured – Sam's concern for Lucy (Lydia Leonard) involves plenty of fireworks with the prosecution team (Dominic Rowan and Freema Agyeman) and his boss, detective inspector Chandler (Harriet Walter). And despite some of the cops – Ronnie (Bradley Walsh) excepted – acting with a shocking lack of professionalism, there's a fittingly dramatic courtroom face-off to wrap up the series.
