Life of Crime is a hugely intriguing three part crime drama that follows policewoman Denise Woods across three decades as she makes progress through the Met.

The big catalyst at the beginning of her career is when she has to investigate the murder of a young teenage girl whom she had met whilst in hospital. Her decision to investigate and bring the girls killer to justice will have major repercussions right across her career.

Each episode picks up at a different point in Denise’s career, first in 1985 then in 1997 and finally in 2013 when she is a senior officer.

It is now 1997, 12 years after last week’s opener. Denise Woods is now a Detective Inspector and married to Ray Deans. Trouble rears it’s head when Mike Holland, who was convicted of the murder of Amy Reid, comes up with new evidence that could mean he is released. Denise has to come clean about planting evidence during the original investigation putting her whole career on the line.
