Scott & Bailey

Episode #114

Rachel finds herself on the wrong side of a murder investigation and is suspended from work. [47 minutes] TV-PG Closed Captioning

PBS Video

Series Description: Detective Constable Rachel Bailey is 30, down-to-earth, noisy, argumentative and single. She's a hardworking, committed detective. She had been in a relationship with a barrister, Nick, until he left her for the wife she didn't know he had. Meanwhile Detective Constable Janet Scott is 40, a diplomat and a thinker, as well as being a wife and mother to two teenage girls. She had very strong reasons for wanting to be a detective - her friend was murdered when they were children and the crime has never been solved. They both work for Manchester Metropolitan Police's prestigious Murder Investigation Team and, despite the obvious differences between them, the fact that they are often thrown together in difficult situations means they have developed a robust friendship. Each episode sees Rachel and Janet face a serious crime that is both challenging and emotionally difficult as well as cope with their own complex personal lives. Is Cathy really over her split with Nick? And will Janet find the answers she's looking for when she investigates her friend's murder? Co-created by Sally Wainwright and ex-Detective Inspector Diane Taylor, formerly of the Major Incident Team at Greater Manchester Police, Scott & Bailey is an honest, powerful and funny crime drama series.
