Waking the Dead: Towers Of Silence (1)

A mummified body is discovered in a disused airliner that has been parked in the desert for 6 years.
There are indications of a link to an armed robbery at Heathrow Airport six years earlier, and a murder at around the same time. Our team gains two new members. DS Andrea Stephenson takes over for DS Mel Silver, and the new mad scientist is Dr Felix Gibson.

Episode Quotes
Grace: (regarding the corpse) It'd give him a bit more dignity, wouldn't it, to have a name?
Boyd: What, like... Crispy Duck? Or Ice Box? Ice Cube?
Grace: You always go too far.
Boyd: Mr. Freeze?

Boyd: What if I told you between one percent and five percent of your population was under threat, that's two hundred thousand to a million people - does that work? Or have you got so many damn people in your country, you don't give a shit?

Episode Goofs
Boyd visits the freight terminal, apparently at London Heathrow Airport. In the background, a Ryanair plane can be seen on the tarmac - Ryanair do not fly into or out of London Heathrow Airport.

Factual errors: DS Stephenson Tells the 'Collector' that on February 2nd 1998 approx $2Million of Pentium 4 Processors were stolen. Intel didn't introduce the Pentium 4 until November 20th 2000.

Continuity: The date on the CCTV camera shows "12 Sept 2005", while as the CCTV shots from episode 2 show "15 Jan 2005", even though the plot leads us to believe the two episodes are chronological.
