A Touch Of Cloth III: Too Cloth For Comfort, Episode 1 - Part One
It took DCI Jack Cloth a while to come to terms with his wife's murder - he barely remembers her name these days - and now he's hit with the news that his brother, Terry, has been killed. The pair weren't close, in fact, they were estranged, but, you know, it still hurts.
At least the troubled detective can count on his formidable team to help catch the mystery killer, including number two DI Anne Oldman, who, nursing a Cloth-inflicted broken heart, has suddenly developed a savage drinking problem. Then there's stats man DC Asap Qureshi; DC Des Hairihan, he of the hirsute hands; sex-obsessed forensic expert Natasha; and new recruit Kerry Newblood.
Clues lead Cloth and co to a small English town called Funtcuck and a weird rehab/spa retreat where Terry was receiving treatment for anger issues against a certain sibling.
Owner Damien Vull is fast-tracked to the top of the prime suspect list - the man does love a sacrificial ceremony, albeit without the sacrifice bit - but, when the body count starts to rise, Cloth realises that the culprit is closer to home.

Sleuthing collides with spoofing when John Hannah stars as maverick, booze-addled DCI Jack Cloth in Charlie Brooker's original comedy that tickles and twists crime drama cliches, now approaching its third series.
Detective Kerry Newblood has found something of note at the murder scene. Warning: this scene contains a mild spoiler.
