Down Among the Fearful (2/2): 
 
LEWIS (Kevin Whately) and HOBSON (Clare Holman) are examining the body of murdered VICKI WALMSLEY (Tuppence Middleton) when a theft of etorphine is reported by the Garsington Equine Centre. The drug was last used a year earlier on a horse that injured its teenage rider, JOSHUA GRACE (Adam Wadsworth) – the brother-in-law of Reuben Beatty, the first murder victim. 
 
Another familiar name is on the list of Garsington volunteers – psychic JUSTINE SKINNER (Beatie Edney). Despite her connection, Justine was in custody when Vicki was killed. The other major suspect, ANDREW CRANE (Neil Stuke), also has an alibi for the time of her death. 
 
Joshua’s mother JANE GRACE (Emily Joyce) admits she saw Reuben on the day of his murder, but denies any wrongdoing. POLLY BEATTY (Catherine Steadman), Reuben’s wife, surrenders her husband’s appointment book, which reveals an unknown client who went by the initials of ‘K.D.’ 
 
Lewis and Hathaway search through Crane’s files and find a vital clue that leads them towards the killer, and an arrest. Following the case the relieved detectives take some time out to contemplate life, death and the higher powers.
