McDonald and Dodds: A Billion Beats Storyline
In the second episode of season 3, there was surely a lot of action. With our detectives present on the race course of Formula 1. A death, or potentially a murder had taken place of a new driver. This happened during the 3.5-second pit stop of the sport. The news was reported to them through the Addington’s. These guys are the most famous dynasty of Bath in the race track for Formula 1. Now we come to know that McDonald is a fan of this sport herself. It is her expertise in the area that allows her to understand things quicker than Dodds.
Coach Archie Addington is generally seen playing her around just for the fact that she is a woman. Although, McDonald does not give him the satisfaction of being overruled and performs her duties despite whether he liked them or not. Later through the episode, the story got a bit tedious. As we saw the detectives doing their part, a person who belongs to the past McDonald come to the light and might have some connection to this case.
This hinders her from getting to the bottom of this mystery and thus, she drops out. Meanwhile, Dodds is doing his work perfectly well and does not stop the investigation. The two, by the end of the episode, finally understand what happened to the upcoming player. This also made them understand the darker side of success. The case finally closes and the episode comes to an end.
