Sorry, this episode is not currently available to watch on Demand 5.

Find out why

Anne Henderson comes into Jack´s local pub and asks him to find her missing daughter.

Before long, Jack is submerged in the grimy secret lives of Galway’s outwardly respectable middleclass citizens. The plot thickens when the bodies of four girls turn up in the river and Jack´s old paratrooper friend Sutton arrives in Galway, luring Jack back into trouble.

When Jack´s favourite barman then dies under mysterious circumstances, everything Jack believes in begins to unravel, making him question even those closest to him.

    what is the point of advertising these programmes to watch via iplayer when so many of them freeze. It's absurd!

    First time on the system. Bloody useless. Runs adverts I don't want to see and then freezes on the last frame on the advert. The advert was for the Wales Tourist Board. I bloody live in Wales. I'm here anyway.

    What happened to the end of this programme - it stopped before the end - most annoying. More annoying was the fact that I had to watch duplicated commercials while waiting to see if the programme would continue. Rubbish system.

    watched Pikemen on my TiVo - thought it was good so came here to watch this - i won't be back if i can help it - trying to watch something that doesn't work is worse than nothing to watch at all...

    oh no - it's started on its own but I have to go back to the very beginning - with TWO minutes of adverts. What a rubbish system

    Why aren't the ads included in the running time? They should be fast-forwardable if they're not included. And why an ad break right before the credits? Good programme ruined by unavoidable ads and constant freezing.

    Why doesn't the running time include the adverts? If we can't fast forward through the ads, then they should be included in the running time. Very annoying as won't have time to watch it all now - especially as it keeps freezing. What a rubbish online video experience.

    The ads were terrific. Would it be too much to ask if we could watch the programme they're attached to as well?

    Amazing how the adverts never freeze, isn't it? So difficult to watch the prog when it falls out every 15 seconds or so!!

    Terri Only way I got to watch this programme successfully was to keep it on the small screen instead of maximising it.

    Looking forward to watching this but so many freezes it's a pity the adverts don't ever seem to freeze. 30 minutes and 10 stop and go moments haven't the patience.

    Two speeds - dead slow and stop - I think it would be quicker to go to Galway and ask Jack what happened......... Can someone please kick this system and get it to work properly

    What's the point of a TV web page like this which gives no information (not even names) about the writer, director or cast or even a link to the production company.
