sexy david tennant 'blonde drools' plays a police officer who investigate a childs body found on the beach sad

I think it was the police woman's husband, I think the boys found child porn on the father's computer, that is why they argued. I decided this when the police woman said to Pauline Quirks character that you must know what goes on in your own house.

Nothing to add on the whodunnit theme, but can I say how great OC was this week (again!). She started out as a lovely, fluffy and these-are-my people bobby. She has evolved into a hard-nosed, don't-shit-me detective. Great character development.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 16-Apr-13 09:55:52

And why did DT want it sent to his personal email account eh?!?

givemeaclue Tue 16-Apr-13 09:57:53

Cos he didnt want ellie to know if wks investigatingher son

Ujjayi Tue 16-Apr-13 10:02:25

Olivia - perhaps he is fearing being kicked off the case and wanted to ensure he doesn't miss out on any vital evidence? He is being assessed by the police doctor to see if he can continue working.

senua agree OC is flippin' fabulous!

sydlexic quite possibly hmm. The husband has generally been a background character whereas most of the other characters have been more central to the entire story.

MadBusLady Tue 16-Apr-13 10:03:10

I also think DT just asked Ellie for Tom's laptop to shit-stir. He's already got it, he knows she won't find it at home, he wants her to work that out and the implications for herself.

givemeaclue Tue 16-Apr-13 10:05:20

Anyone else got brainache trying to fathom it out? Gah we need Monday to come quick

Yeah definitely picked up on the 'in your own home' stuff. It must be Tom and his Dad.

LadyClariceCannockMonty Tue 16-Apr-13 10:07:25

I think it was Ellie's husband too, and psychic guy is the Sandbrook killer.

However, the vicar looks shifty, twitchy and generally guilty as sin in every scene/exchange. Is that just his manner or some bad acting or is he implicated as well?

I don't think Nige and Joe look all that similar actually; both bald, yes, but Nige is much bigger. Joe is not that tall and quite slight. If it turns out to be mistaken identity and it was Joe I'll be cross. grin

I think DT's character will die but I hope he doesn't.

Woah Lady - Pyschic is the Sandbrook killer 'twist' - very clever.

I agree that Hardy asked for the data from hard drive to be sent to his personal email so that Miller would work things out for herself and also to prove she is unaware of everything going on? Joe hadn't told her about the boys falling out/ the paint balling - what else is he hiding?, so something in her must of clicked and she is now suspicious.

I still think the power cut on the night of Danny's murder is crucial somewhere.

Couldn't pushy female journo be surviving daughter? Hence why she so keen to get on te case with her boss in London?

I think Ellie carcrash sister (male journos mum?) must have something to do with it as they have mentioned her a couple of times. DP thinks male journo did it to get a story and get out to a big London paper. Surely Ellie husband is getting a bit obvious now?

I reckon something to do with the farm and the daughters boyfriend ...

asuwere Tue 16-Apr-13 10:15:00

Don't think WM could be Sandbrook killer - did DT not say that the important pendant was found in a car the 'killer' had sold? So if they knew who sold it, then they had a suspect, DT would know who that was.

Also, Tom had a conversation with his dad a few weeks ago, can't remember exactly but it was something about how long someone would go to jail for - it was like he wanted to confess to something. His dad reassured him that the killer would be caught. So they can't be in it together. Skateboard kinda rules Tom out though but he definitely knows something.

AND, how do they know that call about break in at hut was from Danny's phone? His parents identified the other phone (found by Jack) as his so how did the police get the other number from his 'secret' phone? Hmm...
Like someone else has said, they can trace calls/texts sent/received from the network, don't need the actual phone so surely they can find out who he had been in touch with that night?

Next week is a long time to wait but at the same time, what will I do with Monday nights after it's finished?!

I forgot that Ellie's sister said she knew something! I think she is too much of a fringe characters to be the murderer.

Bugger asuwere, I don't have many theories but you've shot them down grin I think the Vicar is shifty... what was that bit at the end of last night, showing them stirring in their sleep. Mark was included...was that the list of people involved?

Can't wait for next week!!!

MadBusLady Tue 16-Apr-13 10:20:35

My vague theory is that the power cut messed with a plan somehow. Somebody set an alarm on a plug-in device which then didn't go off, and they couldn't go somewhere/meet someone/do something at the time they meant to. But if you'd set an alarm on a mobile, it wouldn't be affected by the power cut. I thought of it when we saw the CCTV of Danny skateboarding up the High St in the middle of the night - he must have woken up and left at a particular time, and logical way to do that is on your phone.

If it WAS a power cut of course. We only know it happened in the Latimer household - could someone have switched everything off and on on purpose to mess with the time??

TomArchersSausage Tue 16-Apr-13 10:23:26

Sydlexic'I decided this when the police woman said to Pauline Quirks character that you must know what goes on in your own house.'

Well observed! I think you may have something there.

yellowhousewithareddoor Tue 16-Apr-13 10:25:50

I still think there's a bit more to the story with ozzy woman and 'providing ' for guests and her insistence that she makes her own fun. And asking children to store drugs is just odd.. Perhaps linked back to dead boys father. Maybe not central to the murder but another little bit of story.

I'm curious as to what sister knows. Presumably something about who was in her boat tied in with another bit of olly story. Looking forwards to it!

MadBusLady Tue 16-Apr-13 10:25:55

Like someone else has said, they can trace calls/texts sent/received from the network, don't need the actual phone so surely they can find out who he had been in touch with that night?

Yes, I keep shouting "Basic procedural work!" at the screen. The Killing was like this, they kept hairing off after somebody new on the basis of a hunch and a couple of troubled expressions every week rather than reconstructing movements and checking out alibis.

I suppose it would be very boring if they did it properly. grin

yellowhousewithareddoor Tue 16-Apr-13 10:27:50

Powercut - growing drugs somewhere??? Straws and grasping.

Definitely ellie's family heavily involved somehow.

Chippychop Tue 16-Apr-13 10:30:56

Just collating some loose bits so ican look out for them in the excitement of the final episode forgive me...

-OC sisters story has yet to come out
-the poaching story who was involved etc
-toms involvement did he hate Danny if so why?
- the vicar has a dodgy secret we don't know
- the computer/phone history has to be revealed
-DTs health issues/daughter/ ex wife Story needs to come out.
-the close resemblance of some characters eg Nige and OC's Dh
- Aussie chick and her money issues
-where is PQ's other daughter

Anything else???

DuelingFanjo Tue 16-Apr-13 10:33:25

Has Ellie's husband even been asked where he was on the night in question? perhaps Ellie knows he wasn't in the house and because DT has now stirred up suspicions RE the lap-top the pieces are falling into place and she's realised her husband and son may be involved?

I'm trying to remember what the conversation was like between Ellie and her sister the day she turned up at the house asking for money, wasn't there something about her asking before? maybe something happened when they got back from holiday the sister got in some trouble that night which involved Ellie's husband, Danny, Tom etc.

lisbapalea Tue 16-Apr-13 10:42:10

When Ellie's sister turned up to ask for cash didn't Ellie say "i don't even know you". Could have been a turn of phrase to describe their different moral stance. Or maybe Ellie really doesn't know her properly as she's not her real sister - ie PQs other daughter?

flatmum Tue 16-Apr-13 10:42:45

Female journo must be more involved. She was so desperate to get down to cover a provincial story.

DuelingFanjo Tue 16-Apr-13 11:11:00

OK - Ollie's dad is still alive somewhere. Just watched ep. 5 (bits) and Ellie says he's been gone a while, left her sister a couple of years ago.

FreedomOfTheTess Tue 16-Apr-13 11:14:07

Psychic isn't the Sandbrook killer, they KNOW who the Sandbrook killer is, but the person got off due to evidence being compromising by DT's ex-wife.

I'm still wondering about the postman, who Jack Marshall said he saw Danny rowing with, because he appeared in the flashback at the start of last night's episode. I'm convinced there's a reason he appeared in the flashback last night. When DT and OC spoke to him, he laughed off the "row", but as soon as DT and OC left he made a suspicious phone call.
What's his involvement, if any?!

I cannot wait to find out next week.

NB: I hope DT doesn't die, this has been a huge hit, so I demand another series.

flakjacket Tue 16-Apr-13 11:17:23

I think DT asked for Tom's laptop so that Elllie cannot claim that he didn't have her permission (cos Tom is a minor) to search it.
