Waking the Dead (2000–…): Season 5, Episode 7 - Straw Dog: Part 1 - full transcript

In 1979, Grace Foley (Sue Johnston), at the start of her career as a Forensic Profiler, assists in the arrest and conviction of Tony Greene for murder and mutilation of young men. Nearly thirty years later, Grace is called to give evidence at Tony Greene's Appeal. At the same time someone appears to be copying Greene's actions by sending a jar of pickled severed fingers to Grace. The team are sent current footage of a new victim having his finger cut off. The torturer promises that he will be murdered unless Grace admits that she was wrong about Tony Greene...




Oh. Sorry. Hi.

Good morning. OK?

You all right? Just got up too fast.

Why do you need a bag that big?

I'm in the Appeal Courts today.
Do you remember?

If you had a smaller bag, then
you'd get rid of that deformity.
Yep. You're probably right.

Oh, look I'll be out all day. I'll
see you later.
You're not hungover are you?

Do I look as if I'm hungover?
Don't answer that. See you later.


Appeal Case Number 19035.

Tony Greene versus the
Crown Prosecution Service.

Counsel for the Appellant,
please state your case to the court.

My Lords, on October the 16th 1980,

my client Tony Greene received
multiple life sentences.

His conviction was secured
by a witness statement.

This witness has,
some 25 years later, recanted his
statement in a suicide note.

It will be my intent to prove
that the conviction
of Mr Tony Greene was unsafe.

One day, I'll get out. . .

and do one. . .just for you.

The first witness I will be calling
is Dr Grace Foley.


Dr Foley.

Can you tell the court how you
became involved in my client's case?

Yes. I was requested by the Home
Office to give a psychological

evaluation of the kidnapper, what
we now call an offender profile.

Working with whom?
The investigation team.

But who was the police officer
that you were working with?
What was his name?

Detective Sergeant Harry Taylor.

Excuse me, could you tell me
where CID is, please?

Oh, yes, first on the left.
OK, thank-you.

There's always one
more thing you can do,
and right now we're not doing it.

All right, so let's go
back over everything.

I want
everyone traced and interviewed.

I want all statements
cross referenced.

Yes, love? Dr Foley.

Oh, right, he's here. Pardon me.

Where is he? Who? Dr Foley!

I'm Dr Foley. Dr Grace Foley.


All right, get on with it.

Right, so you're here to do this. . .
Behavioural Analysis.

You better come into my office.

Doesn't look like work, Colin!

So, what do you know about
the case, then? Nothing.

Great(! )

Have a listen to this.



'No! No! No!

'NO! NO! NO!'


What do you want to know about it?

Is it real? It's real.

So, er, why send it to us?
It's a dialogue. Meaning?

The killer is talking to you.
He's telling you things.

Things. What things?

He has a victim.
He's torturing the victim.

He's in control.

What did he ask for? No, nothing.

No note with the tape?

No. So, er, what does that mean?

Let me hear the rest of the tape.





The music is important to him.

Did you check it out?
Yeah, it's a bootleg of one of the
acts at the last Reading concert.

So it can only be a week old.
Yeah. What's that about?

It's a mental
watermark of the event.

Because? It's probably where
the magic happened. Magic?

The killing chemistry.

When the killer and his victim meet,
the chemistry between them is as
strong as the love chemistry.

It's a very perfect
psychological fit -

the victimology fitting
exactly with his psychopathy.

You know, when someone you've never
seen before looks at you
and suddenly you feel. . .

Alive? Yes.

The song reminds him of
the first time they met.

The song. . . On the tape.

Yeah, oh, right.

The music and the victim for
him, they are, interdependent.

So what are you saying,
he's a musician?

Or wants to be, more like.

The heart moves inexorably to
that which it desires, good or bad.

We find his desire and he
won't be too far from it.

Orbiting it, or able to attain it,

that's how we'll get him.

We? Yes! I thought you were just
here for a consultation?
But you need me now.

Right, you got me
all figured out then?

Well, you're my first one, so
I'll have to see if I am right.

First? First case!

Right. . .

He sent you this to
introduce himself,

to start the game. Game?

Oh, sorry, I don't understand.

He's a nobody and
wants to be a somebody.

If he does this right, it will
put him up there with Ted Bundy.

A multiple killer.
So he'll kill again? Definitely.

And there'll be a pattern.

Focus on the music.

You're looking for a young man,
a loner who works behind the scenes,

maybe a sound engineer,
a lighting operator, something that
gets him close to the action.

Jim. Send a bulletin to all locals,
tell them to stop and search anybody

going in and out of
live music venues.

Welcome on board. Harry, by the way.

Dr Foley?

Yes. . . Sorry? Would it be fair to
say that you had a lot invested
in the arrest of Tony Greene?

Since it was your input that
led the police to his arrest?

Yes, I had invested a
lot of time and expertise.

But, surely, it meant
more than that to you?

This is your first case,
your big break?

A successful prosecution was
paramount for closure?

Well, on the contrary, it's
just as helpful to an investigation

team to rule somebody out
as to rule somebody in. Accepted.

But let us establish for the record.

The police would not have been
looking for someone with his profile

had you not told them to do so?
That is correct.

No further questions at this time,
my Lord.

Give the bag. . . Get off! Get off!


Are you all right?
Yes, I think so. Did you see him?

No, no he's gone. Are you OK?
Yeah, I'm OK, but he's
got my bag and my files.

Doesn't matter, as long as you're
not hurt. My phone and my purse. . .

Look, I'm sure once he's emptied
that bag, you'll get it all back.
OK, but I need a cab.

Let me call you a taxi. Taxi!

Dave, have you got that report?

What's this?

Your desk. It's a bit. . .

What? Close quarters?

Don't worry, won't bite.

Suppose I don't
have any choice then.

Problem with the lads?
No, just the office prats.

Ignore them.

Is this a present?
Yes, it's a typewriter,
do you know how to use one?

Bit cheeky.

Unscrew the pressure cap
by turning it anti-clockwise. . .

That's the pressure cap.
That's hot.

Hi, how are you? I've had my
bag stolen. . . Yeah, we know.

You know? It was handed in.
I put it in your office.

That's the advantage of having a
handbag the size of a suitcase.

The poor guy couldn't carry it for
long! So, what happened?
He ran up the outside. . .

What is it? Oh, my God.

Gherkins? Wait a minute. . . What?

Fingers. . .

Fingers? Let's get it to the lab.

OK, in total. . .
Five fingers and one thumb. . .

Six different victims. Gender?

Without DNA results,

I'd say young males.

My God. . .
It gets worse. It usually does.

These four and the thumb
are between 20 and 30 years old
and have been preserved. . . But?

But, this one
was removed from a living hand no
longer than a few hours ago.

Hours? Yeah, it's still bleeding.
OK, so we know that Tony Greene
sent fingers in a jar 30 years ago

to the investigating team Grace
worked with. How many jars were

The one he sent to the team and
three we found in his van. Each jar
containing how many fingers? Five.

Five fingers from five different
victims. So, there was one jar with
five fingers always been missing.

Yes. Check the old fingers against
the ones from Greene's victims

and see if we get
a match. Right, that's that.

The immediate problem is the new
finger, OK. No notes. No demands.
A hostage without demands?

That's not an impossible situation,
that's not impossible Spence. OK.

One thing we do know? Someone out
there's re-enacting Greene's MO.
Yeah. Or. . . Or what?

Greene is. . .


Greene is innocent?

What Spence is trying to say is
that I might have made a mistake.

And the real killer has come
out because of the media
attention of the appeal case.

That might be the case, but it
doesn't alter the fact that
there's a kid out there. . .

and that kid might be alive
and we could save that kid's life.

Does anyone have an alternative
interpretation? Stella, do you wanna
say something or throw up?

No. No. Good OK.

Felix would you carry on, please?

OK, the victim is white,
probably male in his teens.

There's plenty of meat on the
bone and the nail and its housing
are in very good condition

which would suggest he was
well-fed and nourished. The
nail is also well cut and groomed.

Unless the guy who chopped it
off gave him a manicure. . .

And he could have taken off his
nail polish as well( !) OK. Right
now, that's all I have for you.

I've sent off the DNA samples to the
labs but it could take up to 24 hours
for a hit, if he's in the data bank.

Come on, we don't need to go there.
How long have we got on this victim?

There's a number of possibilities.
The victim has bled to death.

He's in shock and will
be dead within 14 hours.

Or, he survives the shock but
develops blood poisoning and will

be dead within three to five days.
What is the most likely scenario?

Well, if the victim is still
alive he's not in good shape.


Grace, do you want to contribute?
It might be his own finger!

Well, go on I'm listening. . .

It might be a nutter who knows about
the Greene case, dug some graves,

nicked a few fingers and then
cut his own and put it in the jar.

A freak looking for attention.

OK. I was just suggesting. . .
No, no that's interesting.

So to rule that out, we need
to keep pushing the DNA cross
reference on the Greene fingers.

The Greene fingers,
can't believe I said that!

OK, Grace, you're bursting. . .

Was there anything written on the lid
of the jar? Yeah, I was just about
to get to that.

Oh, God. "If it wasn't for
your stiff little fingers. . .

". . No-one would know you were dead. "

Well, that was written
under Greene's jars too. . .

It was never in the public domain.

So only the real killer
would have known that.

Yeah, or someone close to him.
One of Tony Greene's ex cell-mates.
I'm on it. Felix would you like. . .

Investigate me too.

Well, the jar was found in my bag.

I'm the first link in the chain
of evidence, that makes me the
first point of investigation.

Treat me like a suspect.


I want the name and addresses of all
the prisoners who shared with Tony
Greene, Prisoner number 1042034P,

ASAP, please. Cheers. Thank you.

Are you sure you want us to do this?

There's a young lad
out there somewhere.

How else are we gonna to get to him?
Somehow the kidnapper is
connected to me.

I've ordered all the CCTV for
the streets around the courts.

I'll get a list of all court cases
where your testimony helped to
get a successful conviction.

Yeah, then cross reference
it with recent releases.

I'll cross reference the names of
Greene's ex-cellmates and we'll
get him. Good.

OK that's my password Spence, to my
computer. You'll find everything
you'll need on there. OK.

Let's get it done.

You sure you're OK with this?
No. . . But. . .


Oh, please!

Oh, God please!

Please let me go!

Let me go. . . please. . .


Please. . . Please. . .

Dr Foley, in Tony Greene's original
trial you gave an Offender Profile

to the Court illuminating
reasons for his alleged crimes.

Could you remind us of that profile?

Tony Greene is an outcast in the
middle of a world to which he
desperately wants to belong.

More than. . .anything
he longed to be in a band,
but he didn't have any talent.

So he become a roadie.

This brought him close
to it, but not into it.

At least, not into the part of
it where he wanted to be, the stage.

The fame.

He eventually hated it.
He hated it for rejecting him

and he hated himself for not
having the strength to walk away.

But he knew how to get
that attention he craves.

Be another Ted Bundy,
a serial killer.

His victims?

Forms of himself,
other pathetic wannabes.

Or what's known as 'Meat-Puppets'.

And so he stepped over
that line into his fantasy.

And enacted it in the music world.

Leading to the second part,
finding a suitable victim.

He didn't need to look far.

Wow. . . Hey. . . Is that his guitar?

As so often is the case, the victim
unwittingly came to find his killer.

You wanna hold it? Wow. . . Yeah. . .

Presenting himself with
an unconscious behaviour

that met perfectly with the
killing needs of the accused.

Because ultimately Tony Greene
knew that that's all he would ever
amount to being - a 'Meat Puppet'.

We tracked him down when we
identified the first part of his MO.

So you wanna come to the party
to meet the band? Yeah! Great!

You better not show me up.

Hope you're
cool with the blow and that, yeah?

Yeah, I'm down, man.


Light up on that. . .
If any part of his plan falls apart,
then so does he.

The victim had never used
heroin before and took a
severe reaction to the drug,

which caused him to collapse.


Get up!

Greene can't think on the move.

He panicked and made the mistake
that would lead to him being found
in possession of his victim.

But at this point,

could we not be looking at a
situation where my Client's
version of events stand true?

He was getting the boy stoned
in order to have sex with him?

It went wrong and he panicked.

Well, at that point in time, yes.
But later we discovered. . .

And in 1980, behavioural science,
not to mention offender profiling,
was practically unheard of!

It was an emerging science! No
further questions at this time,
My Lord.

I can't believe the Prison
Record Service is still 20 years
behind the rest of the world?

How much is it going to cost to load
all this stuff onto a computer, eh?

Well, maybe it's safer that way,
because then this doesn't happen.

What's that?

Every detail of Tony Greene's
case for all to see on the web.

"Welcome to Blind Justice, we record
and post all details of corruption
within the British Judicial System. "

And there's over 100
case files posted here.

Greene's is right at the top.
Can you trace the IP? We can try.

But they will more than likely
have a dead end IP in the Ukraine.
What about the quote from the lid?

Not here. . . Anything else?

Yep. . . Lots of stuff about the
original Greene investigation

and a reference to a drink-driving
charge against, DS Harry Taylor?

That's Greene's Arresting Officer. . .

Grace was called as witness because
she was. . . A passenger in the car.

Sorry Grace. . . No, Spence, it's OK,

I'll leave you to it.

Boyd? I had Missing
Persons send me over all
known IC one males in the age group.

I just couldn't believe
there are so many.

Delegate. No I want to do it.

What can you hope to achieve? Well,
he's got to be in here somewhere,
hasn't he?

Yes. Well?

There's so many of them.

I'm having them all printed out
and put on my desk over there.

OK, well I'll start with these.


OK. We've got four of Greene's
ex-cellmates out in the world.

I've got two names of ex-prisoners
who lodged a complaint
against Grace. Name yours?

Malcolm Sinclair? No. Robert Harley?

No. Angus McHale?

Yes. Terry Healy? No.

OK. Angus McHale.

Killed his wife and three kids
in 1979. What's his complaint?

Dear me. . . What's that? He claimed
that Grace entered his cell and
forced him to have sex with her. OK.

How far did they go with that one?

They logged it. Then five years
later, after treatment - no wonder -
he admitted it was hallucination.

When did he get out of prison?
Two years ago.

Maybe he's having
more hallucinations? Angus McHale. . .

What's the other name on the list?

Derek Carling. What prison?

Broadmoor, 1984.

It's a dead end - deceased.
Yeah. But what's the complaint?

A breach of patient confidentiality.

He told her in confidence where
he had hidden a newborn he'd
abducted from a maternity ward.

Grace told the police,
the infant was found unharmed.

OK. Let's get McHale under
investigation and bring in
the others for questioning.

I've requested the case files from
the original Greene investigation.

I'm going through her personal files
so we can cross reference, yeah?
OK. Good.

Victim profile? An abduction
that's not by force, is by deception.

If he was taken from the street,
they'd have needed to be discreet.

So. . . Deception. Yep.

Which points to someone
lacking in street sense.

So a kid from the country?

Yeah. Or a very sheltered background.

Middle class kid from the country.


Of course, to know all this for sure
we'd have to know their personal
histories. Which we don't have. So?

I once heard a very cruel way of
segregating the kids who could be

saved from the streets and those
who couldn't. I'm listening.

OK, look at them
with a parent's eyes.

Look for the ones who
are still children.

The ones who listen to you
and trust you.

They're the ones that
the predator will pick.

The kids that can be saved
are the ones that can be taken.

Ah, please mister.
Please, I'm begging ya. . .

Just let me. . .


So, if we're right,
our victim is one of these. Yes.

So, if we could locate each
one of them and rule them out.

McHale is being brought in. That's
great. Have you searched his house?

Made a full search of the farm
and they're still going through
the outlying buildings.

Why is it they always have
outlying buildings? They need them .
To put the bodies in?

Cattle? Yeah, OK. So what happened
to the rest of his cell mates?

They're on their way in, they'll
be interviewed and DNA'd by this
afternoon. Great, thanks, Spence.

Your victim. Really? Yeah. What,
you got a match on the DNA? Yeah.

No. . . no. . .

no. . . That's possible.

That is possible.

Yeah, his jaw's much heavier.
The eyes are very good.

Not like an innocent
there then, is he?

He was arrested. Six weeks ago
for pick-pocketing in Kings Cross.

The locals said he was new to the
area and involved in prostitution.

No fixed address. Thank you
very much Felix. Brian Dunne?

That's probably a false name.

We've got him down as Kevin Keogh.

Brown, hair blue eyes,
speaks with an Irish accent.

OK, get the DNA in this file
over to the PSNI and the Garda
Sionchana. The who? The what?

The Irish Police forces.
OK, I'll do it now.
He's not using Greene's MO, is he?

No. How do you spell Sean O'Conner. . .
With an 's'. . . Is he?

No, Greene lured particular boys
who were connected to the music.

This guy's obviously been picked
for money. This is a rent boy.

So, why can't he pull it off
as an exact copy?

Well, maybe he just lacks the social
skills to seduce, or maybe he hasn't

got the physical power
to abduct by force.

All of Greene's ex-cell mates
have got the physical capability of

abducting anybody by force, but this
guy's a rent boy, he's paid for.

This is different, isn't it?

Yes, it's different. Yeah.

Yet, he desperately wants to
appear to be using Greene's MO.


To get to me. But why you?

I don't know. Harley. . .

Stand in front of the wall
please and remove your top half.

Sinclair. . .

McHale. . .

Healy. . .

Stand in front of the wall and
remove your top half please.


Because we have to photograph all
distinguishing marks, that's why.

OK. Turn around please.

Wow, that's impressive.

OK. That's me done.

Your turn, Spence. Come, out.

Your cell mate, Tony Greene. Yeah?

Did he talk to you
much about his crimes?

We lived in the same
twelve by eight room for six years.

So that's a yes?
Why do you want to know about Greene?

I'll ask the questions.
I'm not under arrest. No, you're not.

I'm here helping with inquiries.
I can walk out any time I like.

So I'd like to know
why I am here, please?

He spoke to you about the
details of his crimes, yes?
His collection of fingers?

I think I need to say,
"I want a solicitor. "

Whoa, whoa. Why go there
if there's nothing to hide?

I've got nothing to hide, but
I've got everything to protect.

Protect from what? From you.

Me? Well, not you, but the
system that you represent.

We can do this the hard way. . .

Dear me.

I know every detail of his crimes.

Sometimes he would whisper them
in my ears when we were, er. . .

Well, you don't want to know
about all that, I'm sure.
So you're both gay?

Intellectual concepts like gay
and straight don't exist in prison.

You go in there and you're raped
until it doesn't matter any more.

You lose your
"self", you know, you become nothing.

And then from that nothing
something emerges, something else.

The Phoenix.

You go beyond the physical into. . .

I suppose you could call it a
spiritual state. A kind of love.

You love him, then? I love him.
I hate him. It's the same thing.

Why do you hate him?
Because he destroyed me,

made me what I am now. You know, his.
I'll always belong to him.

OK, so why do you love him, then?

Well, the same reasons.
Look, I don't think you want
to have a conversation about love.

OK, let's get back
to the fingers, then.

There's been a copy cat hasn't there?

Why d'you say that? It's obvious
the missing fingers have turned up,
or you wouldn't ask me about them.

Only someone who knows Greene
would know where they are, and
that's why you pulled me in.

Look don't take this as an insult -
it's a very blunt route
one equation. No insult taken.

And there is one important piece
of truth missing from your sums.

And what's that?

I'm not one of them.

Them? A killer.

So, can I have my clothes back,
please? Soon. Yesterday.

Lunchtime, where were you? I live in
a halfway house, we have a routine.

Yesterday, I was cleaning the
kitchen. Can anyone verify that?
It's not a prison.

There's no guards.

That's convenient.

You know. . .

there's something very beautiful
inside you.

Interview terminated.

All human beings have
the right to bloom.

What's that supposed to mean?

To become the best we can be.

Boyd. Yeah.


They've made contact.

My name is. . . My name is Kevin. . .

Kevin Keogh from Newry

and I wanna go home.

Dr Grace Foley, you are
wrong about Tony Greene,

he's innocent.

I'm with the real killer.

If you. . .
you must admit that you are wrong,

otherwise there'll be consequences.

Is that it now, mister?



Good news.

What's happened?
What's your good news, Stella?

Brian or Kevin or whatever, he's. . .

I think we can establish that
his name is Kevin. How come?

Doesn't matter, what is it?

When he was arrested, he wasn't
alone. He was with a friend,

Marius. . .

Luddick alias Redser. Alias?
Also known as.

AKA. Bit of French there, was it?
Just find him and bring him in.

Right, I have to go. Where? Court.

You're not in a fit
state to go anywhere.

If I don't go, then Greene walks.

And if that happens
that lad is disposable.

See you later.

What I don't like about this Mpeg
is that it's called Number One. I'm
not looking forward to Number Two.

I've got them searching for a sender
I P. . . That's a waste of time.

We can't even trace the address
of the Blind Justice website.

Our kidnapper is not as
clever as he thinks he is. No?

No, this Mpeg is full of stuff.

I can see that, but is it good
stuff? Well, I'll let you know.

Yeah I'd appreciate it, if
you would. Thank you, Felix.

Dr Foley, can you take us back to
the night of January the 15th 1980

and the circumstances that
lead to the arrest of Mr Greene?

Yes. We knew by now that our killer
was connected to music,

so we alerted all units
to check vehicles
coming and going to music venues.

Greene was stopped.
When the police became suspicious,
they searched the van.

Is all this stuff yours, Sir? Did
you load it yourself?

Are you OK?

We were lucky enough to find Mr
Greene's last victim alive, but we
never found the bodies of the others.

Although we did find remains.

Mr Greene liked to collect
trophies from his victims
in the form of fingers.

Forensic examinations of the remains
revealed there to be five
other victims.

But that's not how you first
came into contact with Mr Greene.

I don't understand. Sorry.

That's how the police
came into contact with him.

Everything you're telling us here is
based on third hand information
from some traffic police.

I asked how YOU came
into contact with my client.

It's not a difficult question,
Dr Foley. Miss Lloyd.

In your original statement,
you said you were working late

in the police station when
they brought in the prisoner.

That's correct.

That was three in the morning?

I don't recall,
but I know it was late.

I can tell you exactly
what time it was.

It was 3am and you weren't alone.

Can you tell us who you
were with at the time. . .

working with?

Listen, this isn't the time
or the place.

It's a simple question. Yes, or no?

We're in the middle of a case.

And when it's over?

Listen Grace, you know. . .

all right. You know how I. . .

feel about you, it's just. . .
Say it, then.

Say it.


DS Harry Taylor.

Right, we'll come down.

What is it? We've got him. Come on.

Listen Grace, I think
you should go home. Why?

The Docs said, they're not hopeful,
which is medical speak for the
kid isn't going to make it.

If we want to keep our
man we need to nail him tonight.

Then let me help you.
How are you going to do that Grace?

Let me talk to him.
Sometimes giving people other
options can open things up.

We don't have to do the same old
routine, day in day out, do we?

Let's be different.

Give me ten minutes alone with him.

Five. Then if he's not signed on
the dotted line, then you go home.
agreed? Agreed.


Aren't you gonna caution me? No.

This is just an informal chat.

Can't believe I finally get to
meet you. I feel I know you already.

So tell me, does it feel
good, now it's all over?

I'm not stupid, do I look stupid?

Not at all.

I'm actually flattered
that they let me have you.

I usually just get to deal with
domestic abuse cases, you know,

namby pamby stuff.

You're my big career break.

I didn't know the kid was in there.

That's fine until the kid
wakes up and gives evidence.

But he's not gonna wake up, is he?
His whole head haemorrhaged.

he probably wouldn't have woken up,
had he not received medical help.

But he will. You hope.

What a boring end to it all.

This should've been front page. My
first feather in my cap and now. . .

Well, it's like some sort
of embarrassing, sexual,
dysfunctional thing. What?

Well, you know,
abducting and raping. . . I don't. . .

. . rape them.

I know that.

But you want to.

What sort of a cop are you?

I'm not a cop, I'm a doctor.

I'm your ticket to a section, if
you play your cards right. You see,

I know you can't penetrate sexually.

So, you penetrate
with weapons instead.

Am I right? What's it going to
be like in prison being the gay
rapist who can't get it up?

I hope you have a child. . .

and it dies.

A word?

Excuse me one moment.

And that was the last
I saw of Tony Greene.

Well, until he came to trial.

How convenient. I would like to
point out to the court

that this is the moment that
Mr Greene claims
that Dr Foley swapped places

with Detective Sergeant Harry
Taylor, who then proceeded to beat
him into signing a confession.

A confession which
he later withdrew.

I would remind the court that it
actually was the testimony of
his victim that put him away.

A testimony that has
since been recanted.
Do you think he was beaten?

Dr Foley, you will not have
to answer that question.

Thank you. My Lord. . .

Ms Lloyd,
this calls for Dr Foley to speculate

on the actions of a colleague who
sadly is no longer with us and
therefore cannot defend himself.

Yes, My Lord.

Are there any further
questions for Dr Foley?

No, My Lord. You may step down.

Thank you.
Oh, there is one more thing.

Were you and Harry Taylor in love
during this time? And is that why
you're protecting his memory?

Ms Lloyd remove yourself from my
court, otherwise I'll have a Sheriff
take you to the cells for contempt!

Court adjourned.

So, you and Kevin? Who?


Ah, Irish.

What about him?
We're trying to find him. Why?

That's got nothing to do with you.

OK. End of conversation.

I'm trying to save his life. So
I should give you a medal for that?

Do you want me to send you back
to where you came from? You don't
know where I come from. You asshole!

Sir, maybe I could. . .

Yeah, maybe you should.

What's his problem?
Tell me about Irish.

Excuse me.

Excuse me.

How dare you drag my private
life into this hearing.

Look, either you don't know the
truth, or you're covering up a lie.
You just listen to me.

I sat in a room on my own with
that man and there is no doubt
in my mind that he is a monster.

If he is released from prison,
he will kill again.

But I'm not arguing that.

Fine, he's guilty. He's a monster.

That's not my problem.
It's my job to get him out.

And if you didn't do your job right,
then that makes my job very easy.

It's just something
you'll have to live with.

I warn him. . . Warn him?

Not to go with that weirdo.

What weirdo? In the white van.

A van? Yeah.

I have the number. The registration?

We take numbers of all the cars.

Do you have it with you -
the registration?


Well, can I have it? Give it to me.
What are you laughing at?

Do you think that I stand there
taking down numbers? !
You little shit!

Your friend's been kidnapped and
someone is cutting off his fingers.

We want to get him back
before he dies. You get it?

You little shit!

OK, Stella?



The bit about the white van
was true. Yeah?


I didn't know about the finger thing.

I thought he went back to Ireland.

I'll check the CCTV
for King's Cross. Good idea.

She's sexy, yeah?



Grace. Oh hi, Charles.

Are you all right?

What is she like? She's young.

Remember what that was like?
Just about. How are you Charles?
Oh, I'm all right.

How's everything at New Grange?

Don't you mean how is
my patient, Tony Greene?


Who do you debrief with? Good
gosh, I haven't done that in years.

Maybe you should. It's an
important survival tool for us.

Yeah, I know. I'll think about it.

Well, if you want to talk at any
time in a professional capacity,
I would be privileged.

You're very kind. Thank you.

Not really, I have
the very worst of intentions.

Do you nick many Marlon Brando
quotes? Only the best ones.

Oh, better go in case they
think you're fraternizing.

OK. I've got you some
emergency accommodation.

Don't you want it?

Yeah right,

maybe I go straight
and be a cop like you.

Don't you want to get off
the streets? Can I go now?

Yeah, sure.

Felix has got something for us in
the lab. OK.

See this guy out.


What have you got?

OK. The bed's a medical bed.

Yeah. I blew up an image of
something that caught my eye. It's a
Hospice insignia. Saint Martin's.

Can you ask them. . . ? I've asked for
a list of beds that have been loaned
out. So when?

The Matron's doing it now. You
don't really need me, do you? No,
not really. Next, listen to this.

'I'm with the real killer. ' I think
he spoke. . . The kidnapper?

I'm trying to isolate it. What, you
haven't done that, yet? No, not yet.
Ah, I caught you out there!

Did you get anything from Redser?
Not really. I think we should
move on to plan B. You sure? Yeah.

Lets bring him in. OK.


Oh, Jesus mister, please.

Please! I'm begging you.
I haven't done anything wrong.

All I want to do is to go home.
Will you please just
leave me and let me go home?

He's naming you at
every turn, Grace.

What's that supposed to mean exactly?

That there's a personal connection.

You must know this man. I don't.
I have searched my mind!

OK, tell me again. I need to know
exactly what went on with Greene.

Oh, come on Grace - details,
just give me some details!


I hope you have a child. . .

and it dies.


A word? Excuse me one moment.

Well? He did it all right.

But there's no way he'll
put his hand up for it.
Wants to play the long game.

Are you sure it's him? I'm positive.


Go home. Not now?

We agreed. But. . .

You heard me, Grace. Go home!
You can't dismiss me like that.

What the hell. . . ?

Go, Grace.
I don't want to argue. Just go.

So he was beaten?

I don't know.

But you suspect it.

I honestly don't know.

When I look at myself back then,
I don't recognise myself.

I was young, I was naive. . .
Were you in love with Harry?

What's that got to do with anything?
Everything, if you compromise
your professional integrity.

Are you calling me a liar? I've known
you a long time, Grace, and I've
been doing this job even longer.

I know this much - you're
holding something back.

Oh Grace, please. Come on.

Grace, Grace, Grace. . .

Grace, come on.

What? Come with me.

I want you to talk to him.

You're not serious. I am.

I can't.
Yes you can, Grace. Yes, you can.

Now get in there and do it.

OK, Stella, wait outside.

Thank you. Spence.

You know why I'm here.

Grace, get out of there!

What's the matter with you?

Get out. Get out.

What's the matter with you?

Grace, when I put you in there,
I had every good intention. . . I
understand. . .

psychologically why you put
me in there, but as a friend. . . .

As a friend, I wish you'd come clean
with me and tell me what's going on!

I mean, why does that
man hate you so much?

That's a bit obvious! Because my
evidence helped put him away.

Don't deal with that now.
Talk to me! Sorry. Great. I'm sorry.

I just don't want
to talk about it, OK?


Oh, God.

"This has gone to every
newspaper in the country. "

Put it on.

What? What is it, mister?

Did I do it wrong?



Oh, Jesus no.



So now we're in the
middle of a media storm.

I've got the DNA results on the
fingers that were sent to Grace.

I confirm they did belong to
Greene's victims. Why's no-one
answering the phones?

We've just had another Mpeg.


I'll call this up in the lab.

We're going to have
to make a statement.

No. I'm going to have
to make a statement.

We've got a bed list.
There's over 100 names on the list.

Could you deal with it, please?

Yeah, right, a DA's really
supposed to be. . . Deal with it!

You're not going to tell them
you've made a mistake? Even if
you do admit you made a mistake. . .

. . it doesn't mean that the
boy isn't going to be killed.

No, but it might buy him some time.



Do you believe Tony Greene. . . ?


I'd like to make a statement.

I'm speaking directly
to the kidnapper of Kevin Keogh.

You want me to say Tony Greene
was beaten in custody.

I will say this -

in my conscience, I do not know
whether he was beaten or not.

I'm removing myself
from this investigation.

So stop it. . .

Stop hurting him.

That's all.


I don't understand you, Grace.
Don't you want to help save the
boy's life? No! Yes.

Where is he?

You told me to investigate you.
Why hadn't you spoken to Harry?

Was this him? I don't know!
What do you mean! Is this him? !

Do you recognise this signature?

It's Harry's. He blames you, Grace,
for telling Harry his secrets.

But I've never met him. Kevin, if you
can you hear me, stay where you are!

What has he done with the boy?

Kevin. . . If you can hear this. . .

. . hold on.
