Ernest Manby, a 60-year-old toy maker, is beaten to death for a mysterious brass box and the coins in his pocket. The Whitechapel Vigilance Committee presents a culprit in the form of 14-year-old Thomas Gower, who refuses to deny the charge. Reid - his conscience challenged by a radical lawyer called Eagles and orphanage Governess Deborah Goren - tests the security of the case. Meanwhile, Jackson's drinking and gambling have led to the loss of the pendant that ties him to his American past - a past that he and Long Susan fear will now be exposed. Joseph Gilgun off Misfits guest stars, with Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg, Lucy Cohu and Myanna Buring.
