London Kills Plot: What is it about?
With one of the most famous cities in the world as its backdrop, London Kills offers us drama in style. The main lead of the show is Detective David Bradford whose experience and brains make him the right choice for leader of the elite murder solving group. David suddenly returns to work to take over a new murder case of an MP’s son. The body of the deceased is found hanging from a tree with multiple stab wounds. DS Vivienne Cole is not very thrilled to hand over the case to DI Bradford, and we can see the dynamic between the two as she questions him about his sudden return. She knows more than she is letting on and the relationship between the two seems more than just professional.
Each episode has a new murder, but the central plot of the show is the mysterious disappearance of David Bradford’s Wife. She has been missing for almost three months, and the brilliant detective is unable to solve this one case. He seems to think that she has simply gone away and is not ready to contact him, which gives us the idea that all was not well between them. Adding some fuel to this fire is Vivienne’s insistence that his wife must be dead. As each murder takes them into a deeper and bigger conspiracy, the disappearance of David’ wife seems to connect to the crimes.
