Waking the Dead (2000–…): Season 5, Episode 3 - Black Run: Part 1 - full transcript
Ex-cop Eddie Vine summons Boyd to prison, where he is serving life for murdering his partner and best friend, Tom Pallisser. Boyd accepts the invitation expecting a confession. Instead he gets forgiveness and learns that Vine is terminally ill. Boyd is tormented by the possibility that he got it wrong, and sets out to prove to himself once and for all that the right man is behind bars. Boyd is suspended following a hit and run offense whilst under the influence - only he can't remember anything. The remaining team members must find out who framed Boyd and whether Eddie Vine is innocent. Their investigations are interrupted when the Commissioner gives them a new team member to help in Boyd's absence - but the team are convinced she's a plant designed to find incriminating evidence against Boyd.
I'm heading home now. Oh great.
I'll keep the bed warm for you.
I love you to.
And what do you want?
I've spent eight years in here,
eaten up with anger
The things I've done to you in my dreams
Is that why you've brought me here,
to tell me that?
Why did you come?
I thought I might hear something new
Well I'm dying
Started in my lungs now it's even
in my brain
I'm not going to give you any sympathy
Huff.. I'm not looking for sympathy Boyd
I'm doing this for me
Not for you
I want you to know that I forgive you.
I forgive you
I don't need your forgiveness
I'm an innocent man.
I'll die with my conscience clear.
I'll pray for you
So you still think it's the same knife?
Well at least an identical one.
Do you see how the
middle flanges are
deformed here, here & here
It's called Dupuytren's Contracture
Where the ligatures in
the palm of the hand
contract and the fingers
become twisted over time
So our victim has a claw hand?
Yes, it's believed to be a Viking
I'm blown away. How's this going
to help us ID him
Well it's a rare condition, it's
heredity,be on his medical records
I'll just get onto missing persons for
a missing Viking, should I?
Well Surrey CID had this four
years ago and didn't get
an ID. I think we have a
good chance here with this.
Don't you think so Boyd?
Uh uh yep
Well is there anything that you want to
add. No, no.
Barry, come in
What's going on?
Thanks very much
This is just something that I want
all of us to look at
We'll get back to the case soon.
I'm really sorry
I just want to look at this
Ah....IC3 male Tom Palliser
ran Arrow Investigations
Corporate Security and Insurance
fraud, missing persons.
OK you might want to look at that
Eight years ago he left
work on October 8 and was
shot 3 times when he made
a call from a phone box
Hang on, hang on... this
is one of your old cases
Yes, yes it is
Well it says here you got the killer
I did. So why are we looking into it
Eddie Vine quit West Bromwich CID
to run Arrow Investigations
with Tom Pallister now in
prison serving a life sentence
You may want to look at that as well
So this guy was an ex cop
Yes, ex cop and all we had
was circumstantial evidence
and he still claims that he is innocent
any new evidence? No.
So again, how are we looking into it?
Because. Because Eddie Vine is dying.
He's an ex copper that killed his partner,
you got a conviction, there is no evidence
Why are you wasting my time on this?
Spence, you just said "ex copper".
Vine claims he's innocent
I just want to confirm that
it's an open and shut case
But it is an open and shut case
because you got a conviction
Excuse me... I'm looking for
Detective Superintendent Boyd
DC Goodman...I'm here for the interview
Oh DC Goodman, would you mind
just going into the office there, please
I've just want you to look at the case.
Just... have a look... yeah?
Hurrh.... Do you understand this?
Spence, I have never
professed to understand the
maser nations of Boyd's mind.
Not going to start now
These are for you. Thank you
Stella... you're French
I moved back to England when I was 18.
My father's English
This is very impressive,
you've come a long way fast
Why do you think that is
I'm good at my job
Hurrh....I'm going to
be straight with you
you know we could spend
the next hour having
a probing discussing about your career
and our expectations for you but
or I can just be frank and
save us both the time
Is that a multiple choice question?
It's not a question. The truth is
I'm not hiring anybody at the moment
So this interview...The Deputy
Commissioner has got this thing
Hurrh...He keeps sending me people
every week to interview and ah
Sorry. Not to worry
Maybe you should tell the Deputy
Commissioner not to send anyone any more
Ha Ha yes , I think that's a good idea
Thank you for seeing me
Oh God no uurrr. I'm
really very busy, Grace
We all are. We're understaffed
And now Andy's gone back to Kent CID
You're really getting the
hang of this interview thing
it must have lasted all of a minute
Well you know, time just flies by
Do you want to talk about it?
About what? Why
you're finding it so
hard to find a new DC
I'm not finding it hard, I just haven't
come across a suitable candidate
I thought you were busy?
We'll be fine you know
If you say so. Could you
shut the ....door Gra....
Would you shut the door!!
You weren't kidding when you said
we don't have much to go on
3 bullets 9mm Eastern
European easily accessed
And we don?t have a weapon.
No, we never found it
Well maybe if it happened today they
would have had more to work with
Not much difference.. you'd be surprised..
OK 8 years on... yer new toys. Good luck.
See what I can do
Its always his way. His case.
Look at the lists
Up to speed yet?
Could you give me a chance... please!
Thank you. Right. Vine said he was on a job
in Coventry on the night of the murder
You tracked his mobile and
it placed him at the scene
Yes, Vine's defense claimed that the mobile
was stolen the day before the murder
In fact there was a police
report confirming the fact
And what was your take on it?
Well it reappeared, having being
mislaid at the police station
where Vine worked... so work it out
So Vine had help from his police buddies
They closed ranks
Vine said he was being set up.
That the shooter was shadowing
him before Palliser was killed
yes, even asked the
police for protection
saying he was next
on the hit list
And you're sure he wasn't?
Well, it's for you to find out, Spence.
Well when he joined Pallister and
Arrow Investigation shows he
uses police contacts to run
black mail and extortion scams
proved too much for Pallister so he called
someone in Internal Affairs
Got that far. You got it?
saying that he was going to shock Vine
Yes, there it is... the next day
Pallister was dead
And so they conducted an
inquiry and concluded that
there was no association
between Vine and his officers
and yet they all have alibis. Yeah
You want a witness
Hazel Adam didn't see the
shooting but saw Vine leave the crime, yes
I'll deal with him. She knows
So what do you expect us to do?
I would like your usual..cooperation and
input, Spence if that's all right. You can
start with Martin Doyle private
investigator worked along
side Vine and Pallister on our
investigations. OK got it?
OK happiness? Yep peaches & cream. Good
If these convictions is unsound...that
means you screwed up buddy
What is it with him? Ah?
Has Vine ever requested
a lie detector test?
Not that I'm aware of, no
unusual, amongst people
who are adamant that they are innocent
I see Pallister had a wife
Ah, Sheryl. She also had an alibi, she was
in a restaurant with two female friends
He also had a very large
life insurance policy
He was on the phone to him when he was shot
, I was the one that took the statement
She heard her husband die, Grace
Mr Boyd. Sheryl.
How are you
Ah, I'm sure you're not
here to find out how I am
I wanted to tell you that we are
taking another look; at the case.
I'm sorry, would you just
give me a second? Thank you
What for, why
Ah....Vine is dying
Good, I hope it's agonizing
I know you're not going
to want to do this but
I need to go through
your original statement
Well my statement hasn't
changed, I dream it every night.
I'm in a restaurant with
friends, I'm happy. My mobile
rings. it's Tom, he says he'll
keep the bed warm & he loves me.
And I then hear two shots
and I'm screaming in a full restaurant
And then another shot. .. Silence
The man I love is bleeding to
death and I don't know where he is
This is a formality when the assessor came
If I had known that Vine had
murdered Tom before I'd
made my statement don't
you think I'd have lied?
What do you mean?
I'd have said that
Toms dying words were
Vine's killed me...anything
that would have put that
monster away for life
I don't want you to have
to go through this again
He isn't going to walk free again, is he?
Ah, don't worry. Everything will be fine.
It is usual that the heat
generated by firing a
gun, destroys any trace
of DNA on the bullet
It's always worth while
looking at the casings. And?
Nothing. Right, that's
disappointing isn't it? Ha.
I'll leave you in peace and I'll go
and vent my frustration out here
We could have done this over the phone.
The case notes say you were far in
to the investigations. What was the
Vine and Pallister right
up to the run up before
Well if you read the notes, I said
that they weren't getting along
Why weren't they getting along?
We're all done
Well Vine was an ex cop, he's
used to getting his own way
tended to bully....Pallister
was quieter, more patient
All partners have different work methods
doesn't mean that they kill each other
Was there anyone else other than Vine
who would have wanted Pallister dead
You saying toy got the wrong bloke
No...we're um...reviewing the case.
Its a new procedure
I thought you all had enough to do
The guys dead, I don't want
to start slagging him off
No, no. no slag off all you want to
it's nothing that we haven't heard
Well Pellister was the nicer of the two
I afraid there's a lot of nasty
secrets in this business
you know it's tempting,
especially if they deserve it
You saying Pallister was a blackmailer
No........I'm saying it's a nasty business
Vine had a bit of reputation
when he was in the Met
Don't tell me that Pallister didn't know
that when he took him in as a partner
Hello, I don't know if you remember me...
Mr Boyd how are we. I'm well thank you
How are you? I'm very well thank you
I was wondering if I might
have a word with Hazel, please
You'd better come in
It was a relief in the end...for both
of us. She'd had enough of the chemo.
I'm sorry, I'm really sorry
I thought about ringing you
Well perhaps you should have done
She always said she would
have never have been able
to go on that witness stand
if it hadn't been for you
How long ago did all this happen
Oh it must have been 9 months
after Vine went to prison
She never complained, she was very brave
Yeah, yes she was
Hi, its me again, sorry Felix. I
need to track down an evidence box
I'm saying that even though
Pallister was the acceptable
face for Arion Investigations
he wasn't no saint
Oh that justifies it, does it.
Its OK to kill this man
Oh of course not, that's not it,
I'm saying that he & Vine weren't
exactly choosy about about the
type of cases they took on
Now I went through that
client list and it's
possible that Vine & Pallister
upset a lot of people
Your team only talked to a few of them
Yeah he was our main suspect,
we concentrated on him
Tell me about Parks
They caught him on camera
doing the business, gave the
footage to his wife, who used
it in divorce proceedings
You didn't even interview him. Didn't
interview him but investigated him
He was a business man
from North London. Wait a
minute...he had a motive,
yes but he's not a hit man
Mandy Dawson......... Man...
who is Mandy Dawson?
Our investigations worked for her husband.
10 grammes of coke was found in her handbag
and as a result she lost
custody of her children
You went to interview her once.
We had limited resources, Spence
Kevin Fisher.. if these people good
to you Spence, you talk to them
that's what reopening a care means
OK, OK let's just....
How did it go with Hazel Adams. She's dead
She died from cancer two years ago
Huh, great....we've lost
our only witness. Yes
So how did it go with Sheryl Pallister?
What's she done with the insurance money?
There's no need to go into it.
Are you absolutely certain
she had nothing to
do with her husband's death. Yes
I'm absolutely certain
May I interrupt? Oh yes please do
I ran the bullets through
the ballistics data base
trying to see if they matched any
weapon recovered a crime scene.
And? I got a result.
This Luger 9mm automatic
You found the gun that
killed Pallister. Yup.
That's your murder weapon
So how come it wasn't spotted before?
Forensics were only set the
data base up a two years ago
and besides Pallister's
investigation was closed.
they only check open cases.
Do we know who the owner is?
No...it was found 7 months ago
during a raid on a warehouse.
No arrests were made, wasn't
linked to any unsolved
There weren't any.
so it was boxed
So you're going to check
it for DNA now, right?
If that's your decision,
I thought it was my
decision, but I'm happy to
go with that decision, Sir
I can't think of anybody
that I'd rather work with.
Ah I look forward to the day. Thank you.
and good bye Sir. Yes thank you.
So we got a murder weapon, that?s a break
We got that French girl to.
Oh great she can help us on the Vine case
Why did you go and see
Vine in the first place?
Research had said that Vine would say
something that I might not like to hear
I don't want to work on the Vine case,
I ....hoped a confession. I don't it
coming from the Deputy Commissioner
So what did he say? Um..what
What is it about this case, did
Vine ask you to reopen it?
No, it was my decision. Why, why, because
he's dying. Do you feel sorry for him?
No. Do you feel guilty? About what?
His illness. Of course not
Oh..so why are you so desperate
to prove that you have it right
I'm not. So OK do you want to prove
that you didn't get it wrong
Oh now that's just semantics Grace.
I am not desperate
OK come on, let's get it over with.
I don't want all
this Psycho bubble shit let's
get it out of the way
I do not feel guilty about
putting him away. I do not
feel that is my fault that
he is riddled with cancer
I do not have any misgivings about
conducting a witch hunt against him
Hold it right there, witch hunt,
that's interesting. Was there one?
No...no. which any it goes
your not to blame, are you
It's the jury that found him guilty.
Your not my therapist. Shit
Can I... Can I. OK? Yes...yes.
Nice work with the gun. Thanks
Spence. Yes? Why did Boyd reopen this case?
You know as much as I do
Still, I suppose it took some guts
It wasn't guts, it was ego
He hates to be proved wrong
Sorry. Every time I open my
mouth I'm...I'm moaning
We're overworked under staffed
Boyd doesn't want to know us
because I'm constantly nagging him
Sometimes he can be so sel....Self centered
Yeah. And a touch angry
He was sent to anger management sessions
Really? Didn't work
Still, I suppose it couldn't be easy
for him loosing a member of his team
He's not the only one whose grieving
She was my partner
You would have liked her
Look, do you fancy going for a drink?
Ah Mr Vine. Doctor...Foley. I
saw your name on the forms.
Would you like to sit down?
Isn't Boyd coming? No. Yeah I understand
And you are? Donald McNeil... Dr McNeil.
I'm the prisons chief medical officer.
Grace Foley. I just wanted to check if you
were going to give Mr Vine any medication
He's due to start palliative
No, no, nothing invasive, just a few
carefully placed sensors, that?s all
Good. Right then I'll...leave you to it
This shouldn't take long Mr Vine
I haven't got long Dr Foley
Very strange even after all these years
Still feel I should be the
one asking the questions
Are you an honest man.....No
Do you tell lies?.... Yes
You were lying when you said you
didn't kill Tom Pallister.....No
Did you and Palliser agree on
everything your agency was involved in?
No....Your mobile phone wasn't stolen the
day Pallister was murdered... It was.
Was it stolen, yes or no.......Yes
Did you kill Tom Palliser?.....No
Do you hold Peter Boyd responsible
for your imprisonment?
me.....bring her down.
Are you alright? Yes. Here, have a seat
Ah, I didn't think when you came to
see me I've remembered someone. Ah ha
There's someone who knew
everything that Vine
was up to. His name
was Timmo ..something
He's a photographer. Well
Timmo something who's
a photographer doesn't
give me much to go on does it?
Vine used him for all
those...sleazy jobs of his
Did your husband ever
say anything about him?
No....why would he?
Because he worked with Vine
in our investigations
They would have both known what
Timmo was up to. wouldn't they?
Didn't they ever mention him?
Right....so....this is what
reopening the case means.
What? You're going to take
the reputation of man
who was brutally murdered
and tear it to shreds?
Well not for me!..Now look Cheryl. Go and
talk to this Timmo. No look...it's OK
But why didn't you say anything
about Timmo 8 years ago?
I did...I tried....but you
were so convinced you had
all you needed on Vine...you
wouldn?t have listened
Spence, have you come across a man called
Timmo in our investigations case histories?
No, but there is 6 to 7 people that I
would like to bring.....But no Timmo. No
Timmo...a dodgy photographer involved with
entrapment scams for Arrow Investigations
That's the man we need to trace.
Just Timmo? Probably
short for Timothy...would
you get the phone!
Grace. what? Spence please yep, yep, yep.
Hold on a sec..Well?....I'm
don't forget the polygraph
is only 90-95% accurate.
What does that mean exactly
Well above chance but
well below the faction.
That's why it's not
admissible in court
I took the photos but Arrow
Investigations for time
to time. Can't say I knew
them that well though
That?s not strictly accurate is it Timmo?
Vine was running stings, honey traps,
blackmail. You did all his camera work,
not something he would
entrust with a stranger
so I will ask you again,
were you and Vine mates?
Are you mates with
everyone you've arrested?
Vine arrested you when
he was a policeman? Yes
Did it ever go to court?..
Course it didn't because after
that you worked for them on
a regular basis, didn't you
Vine would call, tell me where to
go, I'd take some shots, maybe some
video, hand it over & he'd pay me
& that would be the end of it.
That would be the end of it?
I had nothing to do with Pallister's death
Oh come on, I know you didn't
kill him but those photographs
meant...a lot of other
people would have liked to.
I've never given it much thought
Did you ever meet any of Vine's
colleague the other policeman?
No. Vine wasn't that stupid. Tom
wasn't even part of that team.
Did you keep copies of the
photographs for yourself?
No of course not.
Are your accounts in order?
What? Every job accounted for?
VAT books up to date...maybe I
should give Inland Revenue a
call, what do you reckon, eh?
OK, I made copies
Thanks Timmo....Thanks Tim
These are DNA traces by the trigger
chamber. Great. It's classic base
work. So how long will it be before you
can run it through the data base?
It's in the oven, I'll have
it bu midday tomorrow.
I'll let you know as soon as I have it.
What have you got? Dominic
Parks, a name I checked
earlier connected with Arrow
He was a big player in the city was
married to Katcha. Katcha. She moved to
LA with her 2 year old daughter
plus a massive divorce settlement
What age are they? Don't know.
I appreciate it is always
sad when a marriage breaks
up Mr Parks, it must
have been especially
humiliating for you with
your wife hanging around
with footballers & rappers and all that.
It couldn't be easy
It wasn't, no. What I don't
understand is why you gave her such a
large divorce settlement? She's the
mother of my child. I loved her.
That's very noble of you. Couldn't
be anything to do with the
fact that she had a little help
from Arrow Investigations? Uh?
Have you seen these? They're
well worth looking at.
Did you ever meet Mr Pallister?
No. Do you remember
what you were doing on the
night of October 25, 1997?
Well I'm sure one of my
assistants can find out for you.
You must have been very angry
when you received these
photographs Mr Parks, but you
must have also felt very stupid.
Do you ever read the business section of
your newspaper Detective Superintendent?
I can't see that we would
have much cause to do that.
Well if you had you
would have read that
last year my bonus was
over 6 million pounds
Look the city isn't
comfortable with a scandal
especially one of it's major
bankers......you don't have...
Er, I think he does, if you don't mind.
I made a mistake. I was stupid.
I have to live with that
I wasn't breaking up my marriage, my wife
cad already done that. She destroyed us.
So when Vine & Pallister gave these
photographs to my wife's lawyer..
You wanted to kill them.
What, do you think I'm crazy?
With copies of these still in their safe?
I thy told me that these
girls were underage
Banker slips drugs to underage
girls, sordid sex romp...
Nobody forced you to have sex
with these girls Mr Parks
Well I can't say I remember
much about.....I was drunk
That's a shame because you look like
you're having a really good time.
Have you seen these?
Look, if you're trying to frame
me....I didn't kill Pallister, OK
They cost me my daughter.
Yes, one of them is dead
and another one is......in
jail...and yes, knowing that
makes me feel a little better.
Right Dominic, you've
been more than helpful
I assume we're done here?
Yeah, I assume we are. Are we?
For now. For now
Thank you for your
What do you think? Well he's very confident
despite everything that has happened
He thinks he loves his daughter very
much, but his main priority is himself
He gave his daughter up
for his career which
gives you a good
idea what he's about
What I will say is that his bonus
and his profile and what he lives
for and I can't imagine him giving
up status and money for revenge.
Every clown on that list
could be a blackmail victim
So why kill Pallister, why not Vine?
Maybe Vine was next on the hit list
It's not Vine's DNA on the gun
Are you sure? Yes, sorry.
say that he didn't
pull the trigger
No, I understand, I understand that.
DNA belongs to to one Jimmy Baxter.
This guy started young, car theft,
assault, dealing in recreationals.
He's been in and out of prison a
couple of times during the year
And was he in prison
when Pallister was shot?
So he could have done it?
Arresting officer DI Gully
West Brompton Station
I'm looking for DI Gully. Over there.
DI Gulley...Yes... Detective
Boyd....I would like to ask
you a few questions if I may?
Are you re-investigating one of my cases?
I want to find out about
one of your arrests
And you want my help. Yes, if
it not too much of a problem.
You're not very popular in this nick,
Boyd...we still remember Eddie Vine
Some of the lads still find
it difficult that he did it.
The case I'm investigating
in is Vine, so if you think
you'd like to help me
All right. Gully doesn't where
Baxter is, last known address
is out of date but they are going
to keep an eye out for him
I've had a closer look at Baxter's
CV and around the time Pallister's
murder he was on the roster
for Porchester Executive Cars
Now they provide cars and drivers
to companies like banks.
not just any bank.
The bank that pays Dominik
Parks' his bonuses
Have I got this right? Dominic Parks
who is being blackmailed by Vine and
Pallister is linked to the man who's
DNA is on the gun that shot Pallister.
Yes Baxter, yes Baxter
Yep. Baxter drives Parks.
Parks needed someone to confide in.
They get talking..who knows maybe
it starts off as one of those..not
me but a friend or someone.
And instead of being outraged...He
says if your friend wants it
sorted he can do it for you for you.
That's right blah blah...
And Baxter ends up with
a part of Parks' bonus
You know, it's an interesting theory.
So what are we going to do
about the DNA on the gun?
We are going to have to inform the
DPP and also Vine's defense council
We've got a lead on Baxter.
Hello guys. Looking for a
gentleman called Jimmy Baxter,
do you know him? Don't
know...never heard of him.
Pick it up, pick it up.
Don?t touch it. Come let
me have a look. What
are you a doctor, leave me alone.
No no no
I can't see any fractures, some
swelling we need to watch.
Can you get me my coat, please?
You could be
concussed....I'd like to keep you
in after night for observation
I'm fine thank you....Dont' even bother.
All right Mr Boyd, I haven't
got time to argue, I can
give you some pain killers,
something for the swelling.
Avoid alcohol, and call us if you suffer
any dissiness or have trouble focusing.
Thank you very much. Thanks
As a result of fresh evidence that has
come to light, a new ballistics report,
DNA material not presented
in the original trial
and evidence linking a possible new
suspect to the murder victim Pallister
The Defense admits, Your Honor,
that there are reasonable grounds
to support our client Edward Vine being
granted leave to appeal his conviction.
Don't touch. God you look awful Boyd.
Thank you Grace.
Are you OK?.. Great...He discharged
himself....Oh right, very sensible.
Thanks... There's been
leave to appeal.
That was quick wasn't it?...Yes, well he's
terminal, I suppose they pushed it through.
Cheryl Pallister's been informed, she
called you, she seemed a little upset
I can imagine. I'd better go and see her
You?re not fit enough. Oh well I
brought this all upon myself, Didn't I?
I'm sorry, I don't
understand this, he did it
Vine did it....Yes but there is
such a thing as reasonable doubt
Yes OK but don't go after this other
suspect, you can just drop the case,
refuse to testify...people do...No
it's not the way it works.....Lie.
I don't want to I don't
want to lie.....Works
perfectly for Vine...Yes
but it's not about lying
It's ..it's about justice, it's
about the process, of justice.
I need a drink. How
Robbie, two whiskeys eh....no
actually I'll get them myself
I still love him. 8
years, I'm in love with a
ghost. It's sad, isn't
it?...No, it's not.
My friends, they are
bored, want me to move on.
Yes but they only want what's
best for you, they just want you
to be happy, they care about
Yeah, but it's hard....you know?
Love makes you vulnerable. Yes
but that's not a bad place
to be in, I mean it not a bad
state vulnerability, is it?
If you think of the opposite
edge of the bridge
You have hard and vulnerable. If you
stay hard, just a hard person,
