Does he live or die? Lives! Like I said, he's a smallish - though entirely key - character in this, and though the poor lad is scarred by his apalling parents (you'll find out in a minute), he does survive. Which is more than you could say if Jamie were playing Valmont, anyway.
Title: The Last Detective, "Dangerous Liaisons"
Original Airdate: 10 May 2007
Availability: Series 4, as well as the Complete Collection are available on DVD
Synopsis: The Last Detective is based on the Dangerous Davies series of novels; Peter Davison plays Davies, a detective busted back to constable who has to fight to be taken seriously by his department (though he does manage to be pretty damn good at detecting). In this episode, the body of a reclusive amateur pornographer leads to an even more gruesome discovery that dredges up horrific family secrets. And no, it has nothing to do with the book or play Dangerous Liaisons (aka Les Liaisons Dangereuses - though I'll just leave the image of Jamie as Valmont riiiight here for ya. Thank me later. ;) )
Worth Watching? At least once, certainly. Jamie only features in a few scenes but his character is one of the few entirely sympathetic ones in the whole murder mystery. Not to mention he doesn't photograph too shabby, either. ;) (The show itself isn't bad, and actually surprisingly dark in content for what is for the most part your bog standard ITV mystery series. And of course, I love Peter Davison - Five, along with Four, were my Doctors - and it's nice to see the first time he and Jamie worked together. Though they haven't actually had a scene together on LOUK yet, have they?!)
