Department S Episode 15: Dead Men Die Twice

Department S_Dead Men Die Twice Title Shot

A mysterious reappearance of a known criminal has stirred up the pot in the crime world, but he’s been dead for years. It may be that he had a twin or a doppelgänger but when the reappeared mystery man is killed, Department S is called in. A crime boss and the dead criminals wife are in the sights of Department S, suspicious and with motive. They find a trail of deceit and prove that Dead Men Dont Die Twice.

Personal Synopsis

A very nice addition to the series. I particularly love Kieron Moore, he has a unique look and has always pulled off the creepy crime lord type. This tale is a fairly familiar format, Dead Man not really Dead to push away unwanted attention. At times the story is hard to follow but there are plenty of scenes with beautiful women for those who are shallow 😉 I actually enjoy this episode more for the fact that Annabelle has a more substantial role in this episode. Up to this point in the series, she would not have had such a prominent role.
