So, if David was at primary school
in the mid-'50s,

we'd be looking at a possible abuser
who's what?

In their early '80s now?

Which obviously rules out any of the
people we're currently talking to.

Unless the murder was committed
on behalf of the abuser.

What, a primary school teacher
ordered a hit?

Walker allegedly confronted him
25 years later,

the teacher could have been
anything by then.

With everything to lose
if David had gone to the police.

Okay, well look,
let's keep an open mind about that.

Okay, so Colin Osborne,

he worked at Klein Egerton
in the late '80s, but then leaves.

Very suddenly. It's only about

a month or so, erm, before David died.

Now, it's probably
a complete coincidence, but

- can you speak to them please?
- Yeah.

And then Sara Alazi,

so she says that she was living in Rome

between, erm, March and December 1990.

Can you speak to the Border Agency,
see if...

How we can confirm that.

- Yeah.
- Well, I think...

Yeah, that's it.

Thanks everyone.

Go home now and sleep.

Okay, listen, I tell you what.

You put your pyjamas on,
brush your teeth,

I'll be back upstairs in two minutes.
Show me what a grown-up girl you are.

Okay? Good girl.

One other option.

You let him go to the police.

And then you just deny it.

You're a lawyer, he's a drug addict,
who's just had his stepdaughter

taken away from him?

Why on Earth would the police
believe a word he says?

And what if there was CCTV
in the supermarket car park

or another witness?

- We could easily check the CC...
- No.


But, this, this is the simplest way.

I love you.

And have you told me everything, Col?

- What do you mean?
- That thing you do,

that you've always done...

That part of you, you keep from me.

I've told you everything, I promise.

Coming, ready or not.

Tess, I think we should
postpone the holiday.

- Why?
- I just think

we're none of us
in the right frame of mind,

you won't be able to relax and...

Why, why would I not be able to relax?

Well, because of what's
happening at your work and...

Work's fine, why would I
not be able to relax?

Do you know what he said to her
before we arrived?

About wanting to hurt someone?

Listen, Jason is angry and confused...

And I get that, of course I do,

and you also have to get how that might
spook a 15-year-old.

Well, yeah, maybe, until her dad
very quickly reassured her that

Jason is simply trying to process
an incredibly traumatic event,

and that, actually, he is the
gentlest, kindest man in the world,

which obviously you did. Yeah?




And are you okay?

I'm as fine as a woman who's

just learned her late husband
was murdered is ever gonna be.

Paul, you don't seem to be
really understanding that.

Well, no.

No, I have to admit I am finding
certain things a little surprising.

Oh, oh, right, okay.
What things are those?

Well, this all happened
nearly 30 years ago.

It's another lifetime ago.

But it seems to be really affecting you.

Oh, right, okay.

And there's a manual, is there?

On how to deal with something like this?
Am I not following the manual, Paul?

I don't know.

But I have to admit, you are

beginning to ever so slightly scare me.

Scare you?

And I'm wondering

if there's anything you need to tell me.


There's nothing I need to tell you.

Sara, how nice to see you.

Is everything okay?



I'll come down.

Thank you.


- Hi.
- Hi.

I'm DCI Cassie Stuart.

I'm leading the investigation
into your father's death.

Can I just say how sorry
I am for your loss.

Thank you.

Would... Would you like to, um,

go and find somewhere
a bit more private?

No, I just...

I just wanted to know
when I could visit him?


Are you really sure that's a good idea?

He's my dad.

No, I understand.

Better surely, to

remember him how he was.

Except, I don't.

Hardly, remember him how he was.

I mean my, my mum made me
a memory box after he went.

Lots of stuff of his in it.

And there's a jumper in it that
I used to smell, to remind me of him.

Except, it's gone now, the smell.

Used it all up, I guess.

And I actually need to see him.

I just... I just wanna be with him.

I want... I want to say goodbye.

Will you leave this with me?

Have you got a number
I can call you back on?

Here, um, use the mobile.

Right. I'll come back to you
as soon as I can.

Thank you, DCI Stuart.

Cassie, please, and really
there's no need for thanks.

All right, see you.

What year would
that have been, Mr Gregory?

Uh, from when he was about seven,

till when the teacher left,

about a year later.

- So that would be, what, 1958? 1959?
- Roughly.

Did Mr Walker give you
the teacher's name?


Or if he did tell me,
I don't remember it.

Sorry to ask this, but

did he ever give you any specific
details about the abuse?

It was bad.


Rape and stuff.

Did he ever report it,
or is there any record of it?

As far as I know, he told no one.

I mean,

kids just didn't then, did they?

Just kept it all in.

Now you said to a
colleague of mine, that you,

"Often thought that it was why he lived
his life the way he did."

What did you mean by that?

The women,

the drink and drugs,

to blot it all out, all that...

Shame and guilt.

So he had drug issues?

Yeah, you could say that.

And did he have relationships
outside his marriage?

Yes, he... He did have affairs.

But, mainly, I was talking
about prostitutes.


In fact, that's kind of why
we stopped seeing each other.

I wasn't remotely interested
in that sort of thing

and we just kind of drifted apart.

And this was when?

Mid-'80s, I guess?

But then, in about '87,

he rang me, out of the blue,
and we hooked up again.

We went out for a beer a few times,

which was when he told me about Firdown,

the school where it all happened.

Do you happen to know if he ever told
his wife about

the things that happened to him there?

He told me he'd never been able to.

For whatever reason,

the only people he
ever spoke to about it, were me,

and when he tracked him down,

the teacher himself.

So, you know, for a fact,
that he actually spoke to him?

He found out where he lived,

went to his house.

What did the teacher say?

Denied it all, of course.

Then got abusive,

then threatened him.

My PA was meant to have called you.

I'm so sorry, total cock up.

My hands are tied, Tess.

If you have access to any intelligence

relating to the investigation,
and it turned out that you were...

In some way...

So you can take a back office role.

HR, training,

or take some time off, take some leave.

I'll stay.

This was him
about a year before he died.

No, I don't recognise him, I'm afraid.


So, can you think of any reason

why this address

might have been
written on a travel card

found in his office desk?

Absolutely no idea.

When did you say he died?

We think sometime about early May, 1990.

Well, maybe the person that wrote this

just wrote down the wrong address.

Well, that's certainly
a very real possibility.

So, can I just check if anyone else
was living here

in 1990?

Oh, it would have been just
me and my husband.

He's passed away now.

Hang on, when was that time

Daddy and I were in America,
and Marion broke in?

Mum was winding me up, and I knew
it would annoy the arse off her

to tell her that you meant
more to me than her.

So I did.

Which is very sweet of you Zoe,

and you mean an awful lot to me too, but

all I'm saying, all anyone is saying,

is we just need to keep
that relationship professional,

and within the
boundaries of the hospital.


I owe you an apology.

What for?

It was Zoe who told her parents
about the phone conversation.

Oh, right, not a problem.
Listen, that's not why I'm calling.

A police officer's just been round here.


Yeah, she'd already
been 'round to your mum's,

and then Elise gave her our address.

What did she want?

She said she was investigating
an historic crime and

that she wanted to ask you
a couple of questions.

She didn't tell me anything more
than that, so I rang Elise.

She said she'd been
trying to get hold of you,

but your mobile
went straight to voicemail.

I was on the ward.

But Elise said she'd told her
that it was about a murder,

dating back to 1990.

They've only just
found the body, apparently.

So her married name is Kelsey,

but she was single in 1990.

So run a check under her maiden name,

which is Marion Dunphy?

- Okay.
- And how did it go with James Gregory?


According to him,
David definitely did use prostitutes,

and on a fairly industrial level.

Oh, Jesus. Do you know,
I just met his son this morning,

what a nightmare
this is going to be for him.

Err, it's gonna gets worse.

Walker was into some really weird stuff.


Violent kind of weird.

Tying up, S and M stuff.

And did Gregory think
his wife knew about it?

No, he thinks not.

So, the other possibility is that

he went too far with
Sara Mahmoud, and she...

She attacked him back, and then he...

He died as she tried to defend
herself in somehow.

Er, okay.

Okay. Can we just be very careful
how we share this information, for now?

Yeah, of course.

And, obviously, we'll need to speak to
Sara Mahmoud again, and Tessa Nixon.

Yeah, I'll set both up.

And what about Firdown, David's school?

- I spoke to the current head.
- And?

She was suitably appalled.

I mean, without a name,
she wasn't sure how she could help us.

This is abuse that is
alleged to have occurred

ten years before pretty much the
oldest current teacher, was even born.


I mean even identifying
a possible suspect

is going to be as good as impossible.

On top of that,
there's a really good chance that

whoever David Walker was talking about,
is already dead.

Mmm. Right, okay. I'll see you later.

Colin Osborne and I both started
on the same day,

and we were kids, really.

I'd come straight from Cambridge,
Colin from Kingston.

They recruited from a poly?

- Oh, they took Colin.
- Because?

He got the highest marks in the
aptitude test anyone had ever scored.

And then he went on to do well here?

He did extremely well.

He worked ridiculously hard,
but, more importantly,

he had serious nuts.

If he'd stayed, he'd have
ended up running the place.

Did you get any sense of
why he did leave so suddenly?

No, I mean, I worked
with him and I liked him,

but I didn't really know him well,

he was quite a reserved man.

One day he was here,
the next he was just gone?

Have you spoken to Colin about this?

Mr Osborne's helping
us with our enquiries.

I'd need to take advice
before answering any more questions.

I'm not sure of our position
on discussing Colin's departure.

What's the best number
for me to contact you on?

Why don't I call you
when you've spoken to who you need to?

What's the best number to get you on?

So if you could call us back

when you pick this up, please,
Mrs Mahmoud,

it'd be good to talk further.

Thank you.

So if you could call us back

when you pick this up, please,
Mrs Mahmoud,

it'd be good to talk further.


Sorry, drifted off for a minute,
what were you saying?

Janet was just asking
if there are any issues,

any difficulties, anything at all that

we feel it would be useful
for her to know about.

No, no difficulties at all.

And how we doing at bedtimes?

Us or Flo?


Yeah, no, good as gold, really.

She sleeps really well, and
is full of beans in the morning.

And how are her nightmares?

Hasn't had any.

I think everything really changed
when we got her here full-time.

Hi, there, Marion Kelsey?


DCI Cassie Stuart.

Have you got five minutes
for a quick chat?

Oh, yes, yeah, sure.

No. Sorry. Who is he?

His name was David Walker.

He ran a small chain of
clubs in the '80s.

Never been a clubber, myself.

No, me neither.

Music's always too loud for me.

Well, obviously, as you know,

we've spoken to your mum and sister,

and she seemed to think that you might

have been living in her house
at some point in early 1990.

Did she say I broke in?

Well, she did, yes, actually.

My father was on a lecture tour
of America for three months and

I was temporarily homeless, so,

I had a key, let myself in,
stayed there for a few days.

- If that's breaking in...
- Sure.

Well, as you say,

it couldn't have been her
that gave that address out,

because she was abroad,
so could it have been you?


Oh, okay.

But you don't have any recollection
of doing so.

From some time in 1990? No, sorry.

Okay, no problem.

So your mum said that you left home
in about 1985?


- And you stayed in London?
- Yup.


Various places.

And was 32 Smoke Lane, one of them?

I was there for a while, yeah.

This was the address, in fact,
that you gave after you were arrested

in 1988

for assaulting a police officer...

I never assaulted anyone.

At a demonstration in North London.

A policeman attacked me,
I was defending myself.

For which you were found guilty at

Horseferry Road Magistrates Court
and fined

one hundred pounds.

You look like a smart woman, to me.

I'm sure you couldn't be so

spectacularly dim,
as to suggest that a police officer

from the '80s...

Fuck it, from any point in the last
50 years, actually, couldn't have lied?

I'm not sure why you're
being so defensive, Marion.

I'm being defensive because
I was on a perfectly legal march,

exercising my right to protest,
and I was assaulted by a police officer.

And you're now trying to imply that

I have some kind of violent past.

And that, therefore I must be connected

in some way to this
unfortunate man's tragic death.

And I find that annoying. I'm sorry.

Are we done, 'cause I have
a very busy ward.

- Sure.
- Great. Nice to meet you.

And you. And if we need
to speak to you again...

We'll get in touch.

So there are
no records that can confirm whether

Sara Mahmoud-Alazi was or wasn't
in the UK.

We're checking with all the main
airlines for flights to Rome

in March, 1990, but I've been told
not to hold my breath.

Okay, keep pushing them, we do need

to be able to confirm where she was

- at the time of David Walker's death.
- Absolutely.

I've left her a message to call us back.

Jake, where are we with the photos?

I went through to Tessa Nixon's.

Unfortunately, she said she chucked out

most of the ones of her husband
about 15 years ago.

- Why?
- Trying to lay ghosts to rest, she said.

Or bury them.

And I'm still waiting to hear back from

the Tory Party offices
about their photo archive.

Okay. Murray?

I spoke to a senior guy at
Klein Egerton today and

there's definitely something odd about

Colin Osborne's departure.

I don't know what it is yet, but

my guess is that they're gonna
close ranks. I'm on it.

Right, good stuff.

Okay, following my rather

prickly chat with Marion Kelsey earlier,

we ran a tenancy check

on the Smoke Lane address and

we've found, yes, one rather

interesting result.

So this is Sinead Mary Quinn.

She lived at Smoke Lane from 1988

to 1991.

And then in 1992,

Miss Quinn was in prison for ten years,

for her role in suspected
IRA activities.

So we then went back to Marion Kelsey's
arrest sheet, and

discovered that the march she was on,

was actually a protest march

campaigning for the release
of the Guildford Four.

So we have one IRA activist,

we have the murder of
a Tory Party fundraiser and

linking them both,

we have Marion Kelsey.

What did you tell them,
what did you fucking tell them?


So, since when did Monster Truck
Mayhem become

part of the Maths syllabus?

- It's problem-solving, innit?
- Oh.

Confiscated, mate.


He's addicted to this, we're gonna
have to send him to the Priory.

Omar rang this morning,

said thank you for not sticking
the petition back up.

I apologised on your behalf,

and told him that it must have
been an oversight and

that it would straight back up
first thing tomorrow.


Yeah. Sorry. Back to normal tomorrow.

It was a joke.

Sorry, I'm tired.

Do you want help
with the interview later?

Yeah, thanks.

Are you all right?

Yeah, fine.

- Hass?
- Yeah?

I do love you.

Well, luckily, I do love you, too.



What you doing here?

Nice to see you, too.

It's our local.

Our local?

The other kids on the ward.

Just trying to work out

how many things are
wrong with that sentence.

They don't serve anyone under 16,

they don't let us get twatted,

and they make us sit out
the back so no-one can see us.

We tell 'em, what's the worst
than can happen?

We've all got cancer.

Have you forgotten what we discussed
this afternoon?

This is hospital grounds.

Near as, anyway.

Malibu and orange, please.

She sounded out of control, Tony.

I mean, Mum was
completely petrified, as was I.

I'm so sorry.

We never thought about why she
came back, when she did.

We were just so grateful that she did.

But, I mean, you know,
you don't think that she could...

No, no, I don't.

She could never have...


Look I'll... I'll call you as soon as
she gets in. Okay?




Hi, this is Marion, I can't take your
call right now, please leave a message.

Why aren't you at home,
talking to your husband about it?

Talking to my husband about what?

Whatever it is that's
making you unhappy.

Who says I'm unhappy.

You're a 48-year-old woman,
necking vodkas on your own,

ninety minutes after your shift
has ended.

Do you think you know me, Zoe?

- No.
- Do you really think you have

the first idea of who I really am?


But I know fear.

Trust me, I can spot fear a mile away.


Hey, it's gonna be okay.

You have no idea...

Marion, please... Please don't cry.

I gotta go.

- You can talk to me.
- Really? Can I?

Please, I want to help you.

You're not my friend, Zoe.

You're not my daughter.

You're just another patient, who I'll
forget about as soon as you've gone.

Grow up.

And what did Tessa say?

That she had absolutely no idea.

And did you believe her?

Well, it's hard to tell
on the phone, but

well, she seemed pretty stunned.

And my guess is that
James Gregory was right.

David Walker never told her
anything about the abuse.

And did she give a reason for why she

never gave us his
best friend's name and number?

Well, she said she didn't consider
Gregory to be a close friend.

Which is fair enough, I suppose,

given the little contact
that he and Walker had had.

Or she just didn't want us
to speak to him because

what he told us gives her a motive.


Ugh, listen, boss, I've gotta go.

I need to shout at my children.

We also need to find Sinead Quinn.

Yeah. First thing.

Night, Sunny.

Night, boss.

- Hiya.
- Oh.

You scared me.

Ditto. I've been calling you.

Yeah, sorry, my phone was out of juice.

How'd it go with the policewoman?

Oh, yeah. No. It was fine.

I didn't know the guy, so...

Short and sweet.


So, where... Where you been?

Your shift finishes at six, doesn't it?

I went out with the girls.
We had a few bevvies.

Right, gonna have a bath.


I... I've never pressed you, have I?

To talk about the past.

All those years
you never saw your family.

I've always just accepted that

it was a part of you
that you didn't wanna re-visit.

But your sister rang and she said
you were so unpleasant today,

to her and to your mum.

And I need to ask you,

is there anything you wanna talk about?

You make the past sound so much more
interesting than it really is, Tony.

Yeah, right. My parents liked
my sister more than me.

They got her in a way they didn't get me
and that makes me angry and so we row.

And that's it, I'm afraid.
It's all rather boring.

- Please don't walk away...
- No, I'm tired and I want a bath.

No, Maz. Every time.

All our life, whenever the conversation
gets difficult,

- you just walk away.
- Don't be tedious, love.

Or get nasty. Or both.

You know one day you're gonna
come back...

And find me gone.


Hi, love. Sorry,
I thought you'd gone to bed already.

Good day?


- You?
- Yeah. Yeah. You're late tonight?

You said when I was 70
I could stay out until 11.


What were you doing in Winchester, Dad?

I accidentally opened
one of your bank statements,

I saw a debit card payment
to South West Trains.

For a copper, you're a shit liar.

Yeah, I got it from you.

All right, I'll tell you. But

I'd prefer not to
talk about it afterwards,

because I know what you're gonna say.


I was looking for the bloke.

What bloke?

The one your mum was seeing.

Are you serious?




You see, that's why
I didn't wanna tell you,

because I knew you wouldn't understand.

I'm just asking why.

I'm not, I'm not saying
I don't understand.

Well, yes? The fact that
you need to ask "why",

you are saying exactly that.

So did you find him?

I'm gonna go to bed. Night, love.


Dad, don't be like that.

Dad. Dad!

This is it.

There's no more coming.

We don't want anymore.

Thank you.

I will be a good father, Tyler,

and I am a good man.

But if you ever do anything
to jeopardise our adoption of Flo,

if you ever threaten my family's
future happiness again,

I will hurt you.

I will hurt you very. Fucking. Badly.

What is going on, Col?

But why didn't you tell me before?

That I was also being interviewed
in connection with a murder?

I was terrified, Simon.

And if Tyler had have gone to the police

and told them about me keying the car

and some sharp-eyed copper had
cross-referenced the two cases,

Janet and her department would be
about to finalise an adoption

by a man being interviewed in connection
with two violent crimes,

and we would have lost her Simon.

But I swear I know nothing
about this body.

On Flo's life,

I have never heard of David Walker,

and I have absolutely no idea
how he died.

- Boss?
- Mmm, yeah?

I've just got these from
the Fulham Party Headquarters.

They had these in old scrapbooks,

from the publicity of various magazines
and newspapers.

Their society sections.

This one is from
Hello! Magazine diary section.

Look at the caption below.

"Nightlife Supremo David Walker

"and party donor Colin Osborne

"at the CP Valentine's Day Ball."

The plot thickens, boss.

The plot bloody well thickens.

So tell us, Ms Mahmoud,

the recent Ofsted report identified

Highbrook as having a serious
truancy problem,

particularly for boys
in the 13 to 15 age range.

What measures would you put in place

to help motivate these boys to attend?

Sara, what's the matter?

You've been acting
really weird the last couple of days.

What is it? Talk to me.

Not here.

I honestly have no recollection of
ever having met this man.

Okay, no problem.

Can we go back then,
to when you left Klein Egerton?

When we spoke to you before,
you implied that

- you'd just had a change of heart?
- I had.

We then spoke to

a Hugh Moray, who was a colleague
of yours at the bank?

We sensed from him that

actually there was more
to your departure than that.

You sensed?

He seemed reluctant to talk about it.

Well, he always was a decent guy.

Because he covered your back?

Because he respected my privacy.

So, when did you start
training to become a lawyer?

Later that year.

That's October, 1990.

That's according
to your company website.

That sounds about right.

So what did you do
in the seven months off?

Where were you living?

Why does it matter?

Okay. It matters Colin,
because I want to know

where you were and what you were doing,

when David Walker was murdered.

You won't know this, but

my partner and I...

My husband, are in the final stages
of adopting a child.

And whilst I've...

I've never been dishonest
with the adoption authorities,

there is one fact that I
haven't told them about,

and I truly believe that it has
no bearing whatsoever

on my capabilities
as a potential father.

I left Klein Egerton because
I had a breakdown and

from early May until September 1990,

I was sectioned in the
Maudsley Hospital in South London.

I'm sorry to hear that.

And there would be medical records
to confirm this, would there?


And you were sectioned because you were

considered to be a
danger to yourself or...

Danger to myself, yes. No one else.

And this...

This breakdown was caused by what?

I had a history of
anxiety and stress and

it just came to a head.

Can you remember exactly when this was,
when you went in?

Well, the date you're sectioned
is not a date you easily forget.

Sixth of May, 1990.

A pretty solid alibi.

Fancy a quick coffee,
pick the bones out of that?

Yeah. Er, actually,
I've got a date down here.

So you head back, I'll get the train,
and maybe we can discuss later?

Mmm. Yeah, no, right, well, fine.

I'm sorry. I didn't know
she'd respond in...

No. No. No. I have got to
meet Walker's son, so...

Yeah, we'll talk later.

I can give you a call about nine?

Yeah, only if that suits you.

Yeah. No. I'm sure it does.

Good luck.


Everything's absolutely fine, I promise.

But do the police think
she did anything?

Absolutely not, they just have
to ask difficult questions

of everyone who ever knew him,
it's just procedure.

You want a snack?

- No, thanks.
- Okay.

Well, crack on with your revision.

The police came to see me
at the school the other day.

They're investigating the murder
of a man in 1990,

who they believed
I had a connection with.

And I know nothing about
how he died, but

I probably did know him.

And I knew him...


many years before I met you,

and at a very low point in my life,

I'd had sex with him

for money.

You all right?


You want me to come in?

No. Thank you.

Take as long as you need.
