In this epic final season, Catherine discovers the body of a gangland murder victim, setting off a chain of events that brings her right back to her old nemesis, rapist and murderer Tommy Lee Royce (James Norton, Grantchester). At the same time, her grandson is now 16 and beginning to form his own opinions about the relationship he'll have with Tommy (his biological father).
