The show stars Capaldi and Jumbo as two detectives in London who are brought together after receiving an anonymous phone call for an old murder case.

Capaldi plays seasoned Detective Chief Inspector Daniel Hegarty, while Jumbo stars as DS June Lenker, a younger detective sergeant whose work in the police force is made difficult by a combination of race, gender and age discrimination.

The pair's working relationship becomes strained after the phone call leads Lenker to discover that Hegarty locked up an innocent man after mishandling the case, with her discoveries leaving Hegarty's legacy hanging in the balance.
