(Sourced from BBC website)
In the second part of an explosive double episode, Gerry fights to clear his name before his enemies catch up with him. Sasha and Steve enlist Fiona to help examine the evidence against the clock, while Danny takes Gerry on the run as they search frantically for the evidence they desperately need to prove his innocence - despite Gerry remaining tight-lipped about his involvement with dodgy dealings in his old unit. The stakes are high as the team go after one of the biggest crime families in London, and it's those closest to Gerry who are put dangerously in the firing line.

  • There is a continuity error concerning who the mother of Caitlin Standing is. In all her appearances where she is portrayed by Jodie Kelly it is stated that Jayne Standing is her mother however, when she portrayed by Amy Nuttall, in this episode it is explicitly stated that her mother is Alison Standing. For the purposes of this wiki it shall remain as the former until more concrete evidence comes to light.


  • The name of this episode refers to to Gerry Standing's nickname, "Last Man Standing". It originated when he was in the CID and was the only person in his old squad to not be bought out. It is also a reference to the fact that he was last remaining member of the original UCOS team.
  • This was the second, and last, story to pick up straight from the previous episode.
  • This was the tenth episode to be both written and directed by the same person, Julian Simpson.
  • This episode served as the final appearance of Dennis Waterman as Gerry Standing.
