Synopsis

Official BBC Synopsis
When a teenager is caught throwing a brick from a motorway bridge, his DNA provides a partial match with the murderer of an interpreter called Agnes Bradley from 2010. Is the murderer one of the teenager's male relatives or could Agnes's love of chess have something to do with her death? Steve is faced with the chance to lay some ghosts to rest when his terminally ill father comes to stay.
