I'm sitting here to find out
where you're up to

so I can assess the best
approach for this investigation.

I want to arrest Evie Pritchard.

- On suspicion of?
- I think she's keeping slaves.

We can't prove it yet.

We can prove false imprisonment.
Arrest her.

Are you sure you want to do that?

- Her husband died today.
- Separate thing.

We're under investigation for it.

The Pritchards had three
men locked in a shed

in appalling conditions.
They were living like animals.

If I was Evie I'd say none of
that had anything to do with me.

I'd say my nasty husband,

who's now conveniently dead,
kept them in there.

We've got what Sandy said to us.

Could you tell us a bit
more about Mike and Dez?

- Are they in trouble?
- No.

- I'm not, am I?
- Not at all, no.

- I don't like being in trouble.
- No.

Well... well... well,

Mike and Dez live in the caravan.
We live in the shed.

Mike did.

Mike didn't mind the shed.

Dez come and he said
I'm not living in this.

Went on and on till they
put him in the caravan.

Mike said he should
be in the caravan,

he was the first.

So they both went in there.

Mike was the first?

Been at Evie's longest.

- How long?
- Long time.

I've been living at
Evie's a long time.

Mike was there before me.

- Do you work at Evie's?
- Work at Evie's, yeah.

- Who burnt the caravan?
- We don't know.

I smelt it last night.
Burning smell.

Tell me about the work
that you do at Evie's.

All sorts.

What do you get paid?

Never talk about
money or politics.

You can tell us.

Well... well... well,

£30 on a Friday.

Then I buy my drinks
and smokes and that.

- Where do you buy them?
- Off of Evie.

Can he leave?
Is he free to leave that farm?

He says he doesn't want to.

She's like a mum to me is Evie.

Don't tell but
I'm her favourite.

So why aren't you
in the caravan then?

Well... well... well,

squeaky wheel gets the oil.

- Dez.
- Yeah.

You smelt the caravan burn.

You didn't see anything
cos you were in the shed.

Did you hear anything?


You heard a bang.

Cal's got a gun.
I've seen it.

- When have you seen it?
- If he's annoyed at us...

he waves it about.
Says he'll bang it.

He's not a bad man,
Cal, not bad.

How reliable do
you think Sandy is?

I don't know.

Is he aware Mike's
dead and Cal's dead?

Our policy with getting his first
account was not to tell him.

- We will, obviously.
- Have you found a gun?

- No.
- - A gun didn't show up

- when you did a background?
- No gun license, no.

What about the other two
in the shed with Sandy?

They also have
learning difficulties.

They're less lucid,
more vulnerable.

All the man alcohol-dependent.

Social services are
looking after them,

- want them to have more time.
- Do we know who they are?

First names, according to Sandy.
Not confirmed.

- How long they've been there?
- Sandy's very hazy on dates.

It's possible Greenholme's
been at the Pritchards

since he left his
family 15 years ago,

half an hour up the road.

Is that possible?

- What about Dez?
- So far no idea.

OK. My assessment is
it's two investigations.

Forced labour,
which is what this looks like.

Five victims at least,
by the sound of it.

Murder investigation into
the death of Mike Greenholme.

- Nothing conclusively links the two.
- I disagree.

Sandy says Dez wasn't
happy with the living arrangements,

which is why he ended
up in the caravan.

The living arrangements are tied
up with the working conditions.

Forced labour.

Dez shared the
caravan with Mike.

Mike is dead. Murdered.

Dez is missing,
possibly because he's dead.

Possibly cos he whacked Mike and
legged it, which still links the two.

The caravan's been destroyed.

Cal Pritchard,
who's in charge of the men,

owns them or whatever,
did a run for it

when we turned up
asking about Mike,

possibly to ditch
a murder weapon.

- Baseball bat's at the lab.
- It's one investigation.

Let's get results on the bat
before talking to Evie.

If we don't arrest her, she won't
talk to us. She'll walk out.

- She's up to her eyes.
- She's the only person

who could've cleaned the blood
off the ground at the farm is Evie.

The others were locked
in the shed.

Why do that

unless she thought
it was incriminating?

There's so much we don't know.

We don't even know Mike
sustained his injury at the farm.

His body was on the moors.

We need background
on Evie Pritchard,

Cal Pritchard,
the farm finances, these men.

- If this is one investigation...
- It is.

.. it's a massive one.
Sprawling. Multi-agency.

We need to talk to Serious
and Organised Crime,

Human Trafficking Centre,

- social services.
- Totally agree. Bring it on.

We need to gather ourselves.

We don't want Evie to gather
herself. She's a suspect.

I want to arrest her and talk
to her now while it's hot.

OK, Mrs. Pritchard,
if you'd like to follow us.

Scrawny cow.

Look at you,
you're a bag of bones.

Are you not getting it?

Is that why you're so miserable,

Bet you haven't had a jump
in years.

Who'd want it?

Be like shagging a ladder.

Who ate all the pies, eh?

Fat, baldy, slaphead.

I bet you can't see your dick.
It's lost in all that flab, innit?

Would you do her?

No. You're not getting it either,
are you?

You want to be treated
with respect? Yeah?

So do I.

You told my colleagues

you didn't know Mike Greenholme
and you said the same to me.

I don't.

We've been told he not only worked
but also lived at your farm

by another man who says he
works and lives at your farm.

Would you like to tell
us anything about that?


The man who told us that
was one of the three men

we found locked in
a shed at your farm.

- Do you know anything about that?
- No.

those three men

all wore overalls
and had shaved heads.

Same as Mike Greenholme.

Who's watching?

The senior
investigating officer.

Likes to watch, does he?


Mike Greenholme's
been found dead.

Would you like to tell
us anything about that?

You've been talking to Sandy,
haven't you?

Anything Sandy said is rubbish.
He's a fantasy man.

- What's your relationship with Sandy?
- Shit off.

Is he employed by you,
Mrs Pritchard?

Cheeky bitch.

The fire services were
called to the farm last night

because a caravan was on fire.

Could you tell me
about last night?

Last night I had a husband.

I have nothing else to say
to these people.

No comment.

Evie says no.

If you charge her you won't be able
to ask her those questions again.

Let's charge her with
false imprisonment,

stick her in a cell tonight,

put her before the magistrates

get a technical bail
on the forced labour

but get her remanded in
custody for false imprisonment.

Otherwise she's out
causing trouble.

Do you mean trouble
to you and your team?

- Because that's not a sound reason -
- I mean

I don't want to bail a
woman who's possibly looking

at a life sentence cos
I think she'll abscond.

Forget that.
We've got enough to charge her

so we charge her.
Pro facie.

Are you sure it's a good idea
for you to be doing this?

We are doing it.
We've begun.

Passing it on to another
syndicate will delay things.

If you were me
you'd do the same.

I'm not drinking at work.

It was a one-off.
I'm fine.

You'd better be.

Follow your nose.
Pursue it as one investigation.

Keep me in the loop.

She was shouting her head off in
her cell and singing Bonnie Tyler.

Have you got to organise
your mum's funeral?

No, our Alison's doing it.

I'd said I'd clear her
things out of her flat.

- I'll come with you if you like.
- Ta.

I thought you'd be asleep.

Every time I shut my eyes

I'm trying to resuscitate
him again.

Try putting the radio on
almost a bit too quiet.

- Good one. Well, night-night.
- 'Night.

I got a message
Internal Affairs

want to know when's a
convenient time to interview me.

Of course.
They have to look at what we did.

Who told Janet and Chris
to go to the farm?

What checks had been made?

We are the supervisors,
the buck stops with us.

Me in the end but
you're in it as well.

That's what being sergeant means.

The sniffer dog
handler's traced Mike

from the farm to the moors.

Looks like he wandered off
bleeding to where he died.

- That's a leap forward.
- Big leap.


We can put Mike's
murder at the farm

- even though he didn't die there.
- Mitch said.

- So Rachel's thinking...
- Let's see if the sniffer dogs can trace Dez.

If Dez also left the farm
that night, where did he go?

How will you find
something with his scent?

His stuff was in the caravan,
presumably, burnt.

Don't know. I'll talk to the CSM,
get the search team on to it.

both of you are being looked at.

Rachel for failing to
risk-assess the Pritchard Farm,

you for this crash.

I don't want you anywhere near
Evie, Janet, for obvious reasons

or anywhere near
the evidence chain,

so I'm putting you
to work on background.

- OK.
- Slavery,

forced labour -
get clever about all that

so you can produce
a briefing paper.

Keep on at social services

to get IDs on these men,
timings, the lot.

- Work with Chris.
- Fine.

I'm happy for you to continue
to work with Evie.

We need to go.

How long will these
investigations into us take?

Months. This is what I want
to say to you, both of you,

don't dwell on it,
just get on with the work.

How are you doing today?

I am trying to decide to be OK.

- You?
- Fine.

Police college came up trumps.

Contact details for
three independent experts

on slavery and forced labour

and a phone number
for the national expert.

- Don't know how he got the prize.
- Ask him.

- Rache, how did you get on?
- The magistrates bailed her.


The solicitor said
she's got no previous.

She's got surety.
She's staying with her cousin,
he's putting up bail.

They said she needed
time to grieve.

No justification for keeping
her in custody.

- She's not a threat to the community.
- .. to check she's done it.

- If she hasn't send a car...
- Oi!

to her cousin's and arrest her.

No respect! You think that
you can lock me up, do you?

- Calm down.
- I'm the victim here!

- Calm down.
- Get your hands off my officer!

What's going on?

Total pain in the neck.

Anyway, Mitch will watch
Evie Pritchard

like a hawk
to make sure she complies

with these reporting restrictions
and doesn't do a bunk.

Update on the
search of the farm.

It's a five-acre plot.
It's a massive task.

for now on the house,

the shed and this burnt-out
caravan. Lee.

We were hoping for evidence

to put Mike and Dez
at the caravan.

Nothing. It's ash, basically.

They're saying we can rule out a
body having been burnt in there

cos they'd have found teeth.

There's a heap of wellies in the
shed and a pair could be Dez's.

There's a D scratched on. We've
given that to the sniffer dogs.

If they can't get a scent
off a welly, sack 'em.

If it's Dez's.
Given that we're nowhere close

to even knowing who Dez is,
I'm not laughing.

- Carry on.
- In the kitchen -

- Is that the baseball bat results?
- Yeah.

The blood and tissue
on it is Greenholme's.

Looks like it is
our murder weapon.

- Brilliant.
- Two sets of prints on it,

in Mike's blood,

Cal Pritchard's and another.

We checked the second set on
the system. Desmond McLynn. Dez.

- Possibly.
- Desmond McLynn.

29 years of age. Oldham lad.
Plenty of previous.

GBH. He glassed
someone in a club.

So he won't be shy about braining
someone with a baseball bat.

the patterning's interesting.

Cal's prints are gripping the
handle of the bat, like that.

Dez's are gripping the
body of the bat, like that.

Either grip could do it.

You could swing to someone's head

or you could ram it.

You'd have a better grip
holding it Cal's way.

Find out where McLynn's been,

when he was last
released from prison.

Where was he before he
went to the Pritchards'?

- Has he gone back there?
- Yeah.

the search team found

a notebook at the back
of a kitchen drawer.

A ledger.

Evie's scribbled down when
the men buy things from her

- and what they owe her.
- That's gold dust.

Yeah, it might tell us
when Dez joined them.

- We know from Sandy -
- Even without that it's gold dust.

One of the key indicators
of forced labour

is the worker being dependent
on one person for all of his needs.

Work, home, food, clothing,
alcohol, whatever.

We've had Sandy say it.
This proves it.

It might even prove
wage manipulation.

There's the underwork scam.
You recruit too many workers

and give them enough work

to meet their debt
to you but no more.

The two other men
who were in the shed

are starting to open
up to social services.

They are called Furquan and Zain,
as Sandy said.

Furquan Badini and Zain Dasti.

Did either of them hear a gun?

We need to be
talking to them now.

Let's inform all three
slaves that Cal is dead,

that Mike is dead.
See what that does.

Chris and Janet to
look over this ledger.

If it's incriminating,
if it's sound,

I want to rearrest Evie on
suspicion of forced labour today,

- see what she says.
- Today?

Today. I want to keep
up the pressure on her.

"Dinner tonight?"

- Is that a no?
- It is a no.

- Why?
- We're colleagues.

- Colleagues can have dinner.
- You're on the rebound.

- Still need to eat.
- You're being disingenuous.

Dinner is not just dinner.
You know that as well as I do.

Anyway. And your timing is off,
seriously off.


I need to show you something.


Course it's mine.

I wrote it.

It's got the names of five men in there
- Mike, Furquan, Zain, Sandy, Dez.

- I can read, you know.
- Five men

you kept at your farm,
working for next to no money.

I looked after them.

- They weren't free to leave.
- Course they were.

- Three were locked in a shed.
- They were living on the streets before.

Furquan said you picked him up at
a soup kitchen eight years ago.

That's right.
Gave him a job.

That's trafficking.

He got in the car.

Still it's trafficking

because you gained
his consent through deception.

You told him he'd be earning
£300 a week

- and living in a flat.
- He got paid.

He told us he worked up to 50
hours a week for up to £30

from which you deducted everything
he supposedly owed you.

He did owe me. They all did. I
kept them in alcohol and tobacco.

- They were housed, clothed, fed.
- They had to shit in a bucket.

What do you do when you see a
homeless person on the street?

Walk by?
I've done nothing wrong.

You've admitted, now we've put
this notebook in front of you,

that you do know who
Mike Greenholme is.

Mrs. Pritchard,
we're conducting a murder enquiry

into Mike's death.

We have proof that he received
his fatal injury at your farm.

Is there anything
you'd like to say?

I haven't got a clue what
you're talking about.

Do you have any idea
where Dez might be, Mrs Pritchard?


We know he was at your farm
two days ago - Friday -

because you sold him six cigarettes
and you wrote it down there.

Do you or your
husband own a gun?



We've got a problem.

- What?
- Not here.

My name's Evie Pritchard.
And the way I've been treated

by Manchester
Metropolitan Police is absolutely disgusting.

I've been intimidated.
I've been treated with contempt.

I've got no criminal record
and I've done nothing wrong.

And they've locked me up,
arrested me.

On the day... on the day
they killed my husband

in a car chase.
One of them did that.

The other
one locked me in a police van.

And the woman in charge,

the senior
investigating officer,

stinks of booze.

- These are the people...
- Did she stink of booze?

I didn't notice.
Has she seen this?

Not yet.

The sniffer dog
trail drew a blank.

Dez never left the farm.

He's not alive,
we'd have found him,

so where's the body?

You'd stick it somewhere
nasty people wouldn't look.

I don't want to let
Evie Pritchard go.

Keep her talking after
the meal break.

Let's ask her -

What's wrong?

.. senior investigating officer,

stinks of booze.

When's she done that?

- Today, after the magistrates'.
- Who's seen it?

- A few people.
- Has everyone seen it?

- As I said, a few people -
- I want the ground to swallow me up.

- Look, it's an over-the-top rant.
- From a raging madwoman.

You were involved in
a crash that killed Cal -

not like she's telling it but you were.

Rachel did send her in a
van to the hospital -

for good reason but she did.

Why would anyone
think what she says

about me is the only
lie in the bunch?

Well, is it?

I asked the clerk
which magistrate was on.

He said Framington.

I thought Framington'll bail
Evie, he bails everyone.

I felt...


I took myself off to the loo.

I had a drink.


What if she makes
a formal complaint?

She won't.

She will.
She'll want the drama.

She'll want to punish.
Evie knows she won't walk free.

She'll do maximum
damage as she goes down.


She's grieving but...

I met her before Cal died
and she was screwy.

She's a manipulator.
She needs to dominate.

That's why she got a kick out of
lording it over a band of misfits.

they did it for the money.

Cal was mean as sin.

Started with cattle,
switched to chickens

but wouldn't pay
to improve his sheds.

EU thing two years ago.

If you didn't keep battery hens
in bigger cages you got shut down.

They got shut down.
Then that when they started

sending the men out
to clear rubbish,

felling trees.
Making money any old way.

Why did no-one think something
was wrong and report it?

Because they're tight too.

Wanted a job done cheap,
no questions asked.

People are despicable, Janet.

You're not quite getting
the hang of this.

No, I am.

The Pritchards recruited men
who'd fallen through the cracks.

Who wouldn't run because
they had nowhere to go.

They couldn't go back to where they
were from because it had gone wrong.


I've got a bit of
a situation with Chris.

Go on.

He left a flapjack on
my desk this morning.

- Right.
- And, well, I haven't said anything.

- Why?
- Well, I feel a bit...

I don't know.
I feel a bit embarrassed.

Are you sure it was him?

Who else in the office would know
how to make a flapjack?

- It was very nice.
- So you've said nothing?

- Neither has he.
- You've really thrown me off here, Janet.

If a man put a
flapjack on my desk

I'd run a mile,

You're meant to be
the well-adjusted one.

Thing is I was going to say
something but then he asked me out.

Yeah, and I just thought that -

Is there anything in the
cupboard for indigestion?

Let's have a look.

I was ever so sorry to hear
about your mum, Rachel.

- So sad.
- Thanks.

Really sad.

I don't feel anything really.

Perhaps it's just delayed.

No, the thing is, Dorothy,
I didn't like her.

In your own way you did.

You will have deep down.

You will.

Here, Mum, try these.

They're both good.


- Is Gill in?
- I don't think she is in, no.

- I take it you've seen Evie's rant?
- Yes.

- Has Gill seen it?
- Yes.

She's not answering her phone.

If a drinking
allegation against Gill

turns up in the shape of a
formal complaint from that woman,

I will be compelled to come
clean about the concerns

you expressed last week, OK?

- OK.
- We bloody well

should have done
something about it at the time.

Is this investigation
falling apart

- or does it just feel like it?
- I don't think so, no.

Tell Gill to ring me
as soon as she can.

Will do.

Gill's phoned in sick.
Food poisoning.

Have you ever known
her take a day off sick?

- No.
- No,

No, I didn't share that with Dodson
when she came prowling around

saying she thinks the
investigation's falling apart.

She's seen Evie's rant.
Everyone has.

The gossip machine's
gone into overdrive.

I'll try and talk to Gill.

I'll be in in... 40 minutes.

- OK.
- Bye.

Hiya, love.
How are you getting on?

Nearly done.

Found anything
nice for yourself?

I wasn't expecting to.

She was my sunshine.


Would you mind if I asked
you a favour, sweetheart?

- I'm not giving you money.
- It's only fair.

I looked after her.

She wasn't easy.

I looked after your mummy
so you wouldn't have to.

No, what you did was you got her
to the lowest point she ever got in the life.

She shouldn't have ended up
like this. She could sing.

She could've sung.

What have you ever done?

Inherited a house
and drank in it.

Forget money cos I wouldn't
give you the shit off my shoe.

That's for every woman
you've ever put in hospital.


Don't you dare show your
face at the funeral.

I feel different. I feel freed.

- Did you break any bones?
- I don't know. Possibly.

You can take the
Rachel out the Bailey

but you can't take the
Bailey out of the Rachel.

Who's seen Evie
Pritchard's little film?

I'm assuming everyone.

Some of you are probably going,

"I had no idea the boss
had a drink problem"

and some of you are probably going,

"I did spot some tell-tale signs,

"actually, in hindsight."

Just forget that.

The reason we all wanted
to work on this syndicate

is because of Gill's reputation.

You don't get a reputation
like that for nothing.

It's slogged for. It's 30
years of being good at the job.

It's up to us to protect
it because we know her.

So if anyone asks you about
DCI Murray stinking of booze,

don't play.

Just say, 'No,
it's rubbish' and shut it down.

Do we know who's going to replace
her when her 30 days are up?

- No.
- There's a rumour going round

that a few candidates
from Cheshire have applied but...

So, has she got food poisoning?

If that's what she says,
that's what she's got.

Right. Evie Pritchard
remains in custody.

We've got her till
3pm on the PACE clock.

We've got very
little solid evidence

and she's giving nothing away.

CSIs are scouring
the Pritchard farm

for the concealed body
of Desmond McLynn.

I think that body is
potentially our key to Evie.

Desmond McLynn, Dez, was released
from Strangeways in November -

DS Bailey's phone.
This is DC Janet Scott.

- Yeah.
- Dez started showing up

at a homeless hostel in Oldham
just before Christmas.

They never saw him after
the 5th of January.

January 19th is when he
crops up for the first time

on Evie's ledger and he's
in there regularly up until...

last Friday.

Evie manages to
keep him in debt

even though, as you can see,
he buys less and less from her.

She always comes up with
something he owes her for.

- He never gets paid.
- Let's bring Sandy back in.

- Chris, you speak to him with Janet.
- OK.

They've found a
body at the farm.

They've got the body
out of the septic tank.

I've just seen it.

It's a man.
Can't really see much else.

Boss, can you ring me?

I need you.

The last time you came in

you said Dez was a squeaky wheel,
do you remember?

Nothing's ever good
enough for him.

I don't think things were good enough.

You were all treated very badly.

I think the way that you were
treated is against the law.

If someone works for you,
you have to pay them properly
with a contract.

- Evie looked after us.
- Did you ever go to the dentist

in all the time you lived at
the Pritchards? Or a doctor?

- Evie sorted it.
- Well, Evie had to.

If she'd taken you to a doctor,

the doctor would have said
"Where does Sandy live?"

and she couldn't
tell anyone that

because you weren't living and
working for her and Cal legally.

She keeps me out of trouble.

She was keeping
herself out of trouble.

Is Evie in trouble now?

She is.

Evie didn't kill Mike.
I did.

That's a very serious
thing to admit to, Sandy.

Well... well...
well, I admit to it.

Could you tell us a bit more?

I shot Mike with Evie's gun.

Sandy, Mike wasn't shot.

Buckshot. I don't see
what else that could be.

Is it possible it's just one
cartridge load of pellets?

- Yep.
- The patterning's wide

so it can't have
been at close range.

That's the one that
did for poor old Dez.

Gill doesn't get ill.

Sandy was a bit crestfallen
we wouldn't arrest him

but he did let
slip that it's Evie

who owns and uses a shotgun,
not Cal.

CSIs are prioritising
the search for that gun.

We need to focus on

exactly what happened
the night of the murder.

- What do we know?
- The fire services

arrived just after 1am.

The fire was burnt-out
when they got there.

The Pritchards didn't call them,
a motorist did.

They wouldn't have
wanted anyone turning up.

No, because presumably it all
kicked off before that.

I reckon it was a
big boozy brawl.

The fire officers said
Cal was intoxicated.

The postmortem on Mike Greenholme
showed high levels of alcohol.

Let's see what the PM on Dez
shows when it's complete.

What about the
postmortem on Cal?

- As in alcohol levels?
- Yeah.

Far too high to drive safely.

A baseball bat is something you
keep to defend yourself with.

I reckon Cal ran out
the house with the bat.

- Why?
- Dez and Mike were fighting?

Cal told the fire
lads he dropped a fag

in the caravan which
started the fire

but I reckon that's
what Mike and Dez did.

I think the fire got Cal out
of the house with his bat.

There was a scuffle between
Cal and Dez with the bat.

One of them lamps Mike.

- I would say Cal.
- Mike stumbles off.

Someone - Evie or Cal -
shoots Dez.

Mike could have shot Dez
before he wandered off.

Did we take Evie's clothes when
she first came in after the crash?


Need a word.


Evie Pritchard's made an
official complaint against Gill.

Evie wants it resolving formally

so Gill's off the case and
you're going to head it up.

- As SIO?
- Yeah.

No-one else can do it.

I know it's huge

which is why I suggested treating
it as two separate investigations.

With hindsight, I possibly
should've insisted but...

I didn't.

you're the only one
who knows it inside out.

I'll be the SIO in name,
but you'll be running it.

I'll come to the briefings,
look at the HOLMES.

I won't do the day-to-day stuff.

You're capable.

What's your take
on Evie Pritchard?

- I think we should let her go.
- Why?

She's extremely clever.
Very strong.

Every time we slip up,
she gets stronger.

She thrives on it.

We suspect Evie murdered Dez.

She knows that but she doesn't
know we found his body.

If we charge her without
strong enough evidence,

CPS'll say we indictive
that we've fitted her up

because we didn't want the
anticlimax of having a dead person,

Mike or Cal,
responsible for Dez's murder.

What about the forced
labour side of things?

Slow progress
but progress.

I think we should hold out.

She's about to retire.

She's being investigated.

While she's subject
to a complaint

she needs permission to retire

from the assistant chief

and while the complaint looks
like it may be substantiated...

.. they might not let her.

It shouldn't take long
to investigate me.

It's not sub judice.

Evie's offences aren't
tied up with her complaint.

Well, they are.
Because she committed offences

so she's doing
all she can to divert attention.

There's no legal correlation.
You know what I'm saying.

If it was sub judice,

the complaint wouldn't be pursued

till after her court case.

Why the hell did
you send her home?

We'll get a result. We will.

Anyway, I'm owed some leave so
I won't be coming in for a bit.

What are you going to say, Gill,
when they question you?

If I lie...
that lie won't go away.

Evie'll get to court and the defence will
ask about the complaint,

had I been drinking.
And I'll lie in court.

And every time the question
crops up, I'll lie.

It's not just my lie.

You know I had a drink in the
toilets at the magistrates'.

I told you.
Both of you.

But we won't breathe
a word about it.

That's three people lying.

That's you launching your brilliant
career as a sergeant on a lie.

Say you don't lie.
Say you say,

"Hands up, I had a drink.
I was nervous.

"I wasn't drunk by any
stretch but I had a drink."

Say you tell them you've been...
off kilter.

What's that supposed to mean?
Off kilter?

- Will you swear something to me?
- Depends.

I'm asking you as friends.

- Yeah.
- Yeah.

When you're interviewed
about me and this complaint,

which you will be, swear to me
you'll say exactly what you know.

- You lied for me.
- Completely different.

- We want to help you.
- It would be helping me.

I will not make a conspiracy,
Rachel. I'm not going out on a lie.

I stopped smoking overnight,

So don't worry about me
ending up a lush. I won't.

It'll stop when the job does.

I was fine when I first came
back after Helen Bartlett.

- I know you were.
- I was fine for months

and then I couldn't
get it out of my head.

- Flashbacks?
- No.

If I'd locked my car

when I took my trolley back,
like any normal person

with their head screwed on,
none of it would've happened.

She wouldn't have died.
I wouldn't have nearly died.

Thousands of pounds
of tax payers' money

wouldn't have been squandered.

And if I could make
such a basic mistake,

how many other
mistakes could I make?

- I lost my nerve.
- Is that when you decided to retire?

Yeah, but I strung it out cos I
was waiting for the right time

which is cretinous because...

- There is no right time.
- Yeah.

- There's just now.
- Exactly.

That really is rich
coming from you,

that little pearl of wisdom.


What are you waiting for, Janet?

- In what way?
- Every way.

We can get Evie right
now with this lot.

Only partially
and I don't think Rachel's
in the mood for partially.

- I do fancy you.
- OK, good.

It is good, actually, because the
thing is generally I go for tall men.

- I like redheads.
- There you go.

- Can't have it all.
- No.

- So is that a yes for dinner?
- It is.

- Why are we waiting?
- I don't know.

What a shame they wouldn't let
your brother come out for the day.

It is his fault, Dorothy,
he assaulted a prison officer.

Oh, dear.

- Gill coming?
- She's got a work thing.

I see we offered you counselling

after you were abducted.

I see you stopped going.

- Is that right?
- Yes.

Can you run through where you're
up to in your welfare programme?

- I'm not.
- Are you going to your GP?

- No.
- How are you coping?

I cope.

- When you stopped going to counselling
were you offered an alternative?


Did someone from
welfare get in touch?


We've questioned DS Dodson

and a few of your colleagues
to get some background.

Drinking on duty, as you know,
is a sackable offence.

Hiya, love. The one before
us is still going off

cos the door to the
cremator got stuck.

You should get your money back.

They're meant to provide
a dignified ceremony.

My mother was an attention-seeking
car crash so this is perfect.

Hi, Mitch.

So pick her up.
Yes, now.

I'm on my way back.
So's Janet. Bye.

We can arrest Evie Pritchard
for murder.

Forensics are back.

Alison, we've got to go.

- You're joking.
- Will you be OK?

- I'll get Dorothy home.
- Thank you.


What I'd like to focus on today

is the specific complaint
made against you
by Mrs. Pritchard.

The specific complaint is that

when you spoke to her
at the magistrates'

you were drunk.

Were you drunk?

No, I was not drunk.

I don't think we've
supported you enough.

I'd like to offer
you more welfare.

I don't want welfare.
I want to be allowed to retire.

What time did you go to
bed on the Friday night?

- Ten o'clock.
- What time did you wake up?

Eight o'clock.

- Did you wake up during the night?
- No.

A fire engine came to the
farm at just after 1am.

I slept through.

Your bedroom is on the side
of the house nearest the caravan.

Did you hear any noises
from the caravan or nearby?

Can you hear noises when
you're asleep? I can't.

A witness reported
hearing a gun being fired.

- Did you hear a gun?
- I heard nothing and saw nothing

until eight o'clock
the following morning.

And what did you
hear and see then?

Cal, passed out on a chair.

- What time did Cal wake up?
- I don't remember.

When he woke up can you
remember what you talked about?

We didn't.

If I'd known he was
going to be dead

by lunchtime I'd have
made the effort.

Have you got anything on me?

Cos I'm sick of looking
at your fucking face!

And yours.

Challenge her,
challenge her now.

We found the body of Desmond
McLynn in septic tank of your farm.

He was shot at a
range of ten metres

with 00 gauge buckshot
from a shotgun.

When we drain the septic tank.
we recovered that gun

Lab results show your
fingerprints are on it.

- It's my gun.
- Yes.

- Now she's got a gun.
- Your fingerprints are

on the manhole cover to the septic tank.

We found a wheelbarrow
with Dez's blood on it,

presumably from when the body
was pushed to the septic tank.

Your fingerprints are
on that wheelbarrow.

It's my wheelbarrow.

Your prints were in his blood.

And traces of his blood
were found on the trousers

we took off you when we
first questioned you.

Presumably from when you
cleaned up his blood.

You can't get fingerprints off
a gun that's covered in shit.

Fingerprints are grease.

Rinse off what's on top
and there they are.

That gun is covered in prints

and they're all yours.

Eve Pritchard,
you are charged as follows:

That you at Rochdale in the
county of Greater Manchester

on 19th September 2014

did murder Desmond McLynn
contrary to common law.

That you at Rochdale in the
county of Greater Manchester

between 1st January 2007
and 19th September 2014

did falsely imprison Zain Dasti
contrary to common law.

That you at Rochdale in the
county of Greater Manchester

between 1st January 2003
and 19th September 2014

did hold Sandy Thewliss
in slavery or servitude...

or you did require Sandy to
perform forced or compulsory labour

and the circumstances are such that
you knew or ought to have known

that Sandy was being required
to perform such labour,

contrary to Section 71
Coroners and Justice Act 2009.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!

I first met Gill

at Bruche in 1993.

She was dressed head
to toe in leather

with hair down to her bum.

- I was not!
- It must have been someone else.

she was telling someone

how they
could do what they were doing much better

if they'd only do
it just like her.

And I thought
"She's a bit scary".

22 years later and I'm
still a bit scared of Gill

but I've cottoned on to the fact
that that's how she likes it.

- I am so proud of you.
- We've all been Murrayed.

We've all had our
eyebrows singed

if we haven't managed to achieve

her stratospherically
high standards.

And now she's retired.

Let loose on the world

with time on her hands.

God help any weeds
in her garden.

God help anything young and
male in a 50-mile radius.

- Doesn't have to be young!
- Doesn't have to be male!

That is totally unacceptable.

Julie Dodson, the stories
I could tell about you!

You look deep and meaningful.

Just thinking about change.

Yeah, well, I applied for an
interview development role today.

It's what I'm best at and I'm
going take it as far as I can.


You should come back inside.

Dodson's doing shots,
Gill's dancing.

I think that's what it is.

And Will Pemberton's
just turned up

and he's sort of casting about
like he's looking for somebody.

- Are you joking?
- No.

I'll just finish this.
