A strength of this absorbing Morecambe-set whodunit has been that the family lives of all involved have been as crucial as the police investigation.

In particular, there’s been the prospect of chickens coming home to roost for family liaison officer Lisa (Morven Christie, pictured above), whose neglected teens have been going off the rails.

There have also been secrets and lies within the bereaved Meredith family, notably the connection between Lisa and stepdad Sean (Jonas Armstrong) that could torpedo her career.

In this satisfying and well-executed finale, we finally discover what happened on the night the twins went missing, how Dylan died and the identity of the mystery man in the distinctive trainers.

A second series, please.
