Galvin (Philip Glenister) lets his emotions get the better of him when his wife’s murderer, Mr Tibbs (Kevin Mcnally), arrives in town. Hell bent on revenge and with no regard for his own safety, Galvin arms himself to the hilt and embarks on what amounts to little more than a suicide mission, attempting to break into the hideous rat mans lair alone to exact his much dreamt of retribution.
Once inside, Mr Tibbs is nowhere to be found but evidence of his presence is all around. Jars of laboratory bottles line the shelves containing terrifying specimens and in the corner, a young woman (Grace) is locked in a cage. With a gaggle of nasty type fours hot on his tail, Galvin makes a desperate bid to escape but with the woman in tow it’s increasingly difficult. Luke (Christian Cooke), Mina (Zoe Tapper) and Ruby (Holliday Grainger) arrive just in time to save the couple. They speed off, leaving the baying half-lives in their wake.
He might have saved the girl, but Galvin isn’t satisfied, thirsty for vengeance, he won’t rest until Mr Tibbs is dead. He and Luke head off to the sewers to find the rat man leaving Mina and Grace safe in the Stacks.
But Galvin, blinded by his emotions has played straight into Mr Tibbs’ hands. Before long, Grace lies dead in the stacks, with Mina unconscious next to her, a bomb ticking at her feet.
Meanwhile Luke and Galvin reach a dead end in the sewer and it slowly dawns on them, the water levels are rising and that they’ve walked into a trap.
Help for Mina comes in an unlikely form – Ruby, who is stunned to discover the scene that confronts her. With the timer reading one minute and Mina out for the count, there’s only one thing for it; Ruby must take a wild guess at which wire to cut…
Meanwhile Galvin and Luke are up to their eyeballs in sewage water. With only seconds left to live they begin saying their last goodbyes.
