A Sun Hill copper, a teenage girl entombed in concrete, a small child's torso (and practically accompanying limbs), etc. It's not pretty stuff, but the Murder Investigation Team - led by DC Rosie McManus (Lindsey Coulsen) and DI Vivien Friend (Samantha Spiro) have only one objective - to find the killer and prove without a shadow of doubt who did it and how it was done. The first episode airs on Saturday 3rd May on ITV1 at 9.15pm.

The website says of Steven's character - Detective Chief Inspector Malcolm Savage - `Malcolm has been with the Met all his working life. Not just a good detective, he's also a damn nice bloke. Being such a soft touch the others do play up to him. As DCI, he's the boss; all major decisions are his, but with so many cases on the go he's a busy man. Ironically his wife works for the Police Complaints Authority. He thinks her rebellious, passionate side has rubbed off on him. But really, he couldn't be further from the truth!' Steven said there were 2 episodes out of the series in which his character featured more prominently than in the others. For more info, check out the website.

Steven Pacey reprises his role in 'Celebration' as part of the 'Pinter on the BBC' series. BBC4 is televising a portion of The Almeida Theatre Company's production of this Harold Pinter comedy set in a restaurant. As a group of friends celebrate over a meal, details of their private lives are very publicly revealed. It is directed by Harold Pinter and the full cast is Keith Allen, Lindsay Duncan, Steven Pacey, Andy de la Tour, Lia Williams and Susan Wooldridge. Pinter at the BBC: Celebration is on BBC4 Friday 08 November 10:00pm to 10:45pm. Stephen will be playing Scott Ginsburg in Michael Rudman's 'Benchmark' alongside Jerry Hall from 11th September to 20th October at the New End Theatre, New End, Hampstead, London NW3 - Box Office 020 7794 0022.

Harriet Monkhouse: Unfortunately, all three of the reviews I have seen so far say the play is appallingly bad, though two of them think Ms Hall does quite well in the circumstances.

Michael Billington of the Guardian says "Stephen Greif also lends her hippy lover a certain rugged, ponytailed grandeur." The others mention him without assessing his performance.

So probably not one to rush out for unless you really want to see Travis with long grey hair and sandals, claiming to have discovered inner serenity in a Tibetan monastery.

Play: On a park bench in Los Angeles, California, two men who once knew each other well meet by chance. One of them has just returned from a Tibetan monastery, the other is operating his business from a laptop. Is this really a chance encounter? Enter a mute young woman, a sandwich salesman and 'Sugar', an ex-wife to them both.
