The LGBTQ aspect allows the story to explore the role of sexuality, masculinity and femininity in society. These are explored via the other central characters, which include two DCs, Simone and Aleski. While they provide comic relief they also act as foil characters to the protagonist Jamie. Jamie’s relationship with his girlfriend Emma and the friend of the victim Lucy is also explored. As his relationship with Lucy strengthens his relationship with his girlfriend disintegrates. The role of relationships, and the different forms they come here are looked at.
