# Sun is shining The weather is sweet, yeah

# Makes you want to move Those dancing feet

0:00:200:00:25

# To the rescue, here I am... #

0:00:250:00:29

Oh, man.

0:00:310:00:34

# As the morning gathers a rainbow... #

0:00:340:00:37

I'm sorry sir, time's up.

0:00:410:00:42

If she was your goat, she would have gone to you.

0:00:420:00:45

This goat remains unclaimed.

0:00:450:00:47

Fidel?

0:00:480:00:50

Yes, sir.

0:00:500:00:52

Goats aren't obedient.

0:00:520:00:54

They don't come when called. You do know that, don't you?

0:00:540:00:58

Got him chief.

0:01:300:01:32

Ah, Dwayne, well done!

0:01:320:01:34

Oh, you can't put me in here!

0:01:370:01:39

Why, you want to go in there?

0:01:390:01:42

Maybe you should stop stealing yachts.

0:01:430:01:46

Lily, I'm going to knock off early if that's OK?

0:01:500:01:54

Sure thing, sir. Have a nice evening.

0:01:540:01:58

Night, Chief.

0:01:580:02:00

MUSIC AND CHATTER

GUNSHOT

0:03:000:03:02

ALARM WAILS

0:03:030:03:05

PHONE RINGS

0:03:080:03:11

Honore Police Station.

0:03:110:03:13

OK and what time was this?

0:03:160:03:17

PHONE RINGTONE: "I Shot The Sheriff"

0:03:170:03:19

-OK. We'll send someone over right away.

-Hello?

0:03:190:03:22

Erm...Dwayne?

0:03:220:03:26

-You know Lord Salcombe's place?

-Mmm-hm.

0:03:260:03:29

Well, his panic room's gone into lock down.

0:03:290:03:31

Apparently, we've got the codes to open it in our safe.

0:03:310:03:34

-Shall I go and...

-'That's a very good shot.

0:03:340:03:36

-'Beautiful cover drive...'

-Dwayne?

0:03:360:03:39

-Oh, for heaven's sake. I'll do it!

-Uh?

0:03:390:03:42

We've got a problem.

0:03:580:03:59

We were having a party. Then from nowhere the alarm started blaring.

0:04:030:04:07

Someone is locked in the panic room.

0:04:070:04:08

-Where are Lord and Lady Salcombe?

-No-one's seen them since the alarm went off.

0:04:080:04:13

I think you should know. Just before the alarm, there was a gunshot. Everybody heard it.

0:04:140:04:20

Everybody out and don't touch anything.

0:04:250:04:28

Sortez la! Allez!

0:04:280:04:30

What's going on?

0:04:300:04:31

There was a gunshot and the panic room has been locked down.

0:04:310:04:36

Who's in there?

0:04:360:04:37

No!

0:04:400:04:42

-Is it James?

-No!

0:04:420:04:43

Is my husband in there?

0:04:430:04:45

What on earth would I be doing in there?

0:04:450:04:47

Lawrence, call an ambulance. Now!

0:04:470:04:49

-Allez la!

-Pas de probleme.

0:04:490:04:52

It's Charlie Hulme.

0:04:550:04:57

I've just been informed the airline have lost my luggage.

0:05:370:05:40

I'm sorry to hear that, Sir.

0:05:400:05:42

If you could just point me in the direction of the lost luggage desk?

0:05:420:05:45

Ah. Thank you.

0:05:450:05:46

We don't need outside help.

0:05:530:05:55

Charlie Hulme was a British cop.

0:05:550:05:58

They want a British cop to lead the case.

0:05:580:06:00

What time do you open in the morning?

0:06:000:06:02

0600 hours, Sir.

0:06:020:06:04

Then I'll call you at 06.01.

0:06:040:06:07

Thank you very much... Daphne.

0:06:070:06:09

Oh, Christ.

0:06:220:06:24

Ah! Hey, my monitor's playing up.

0:06:310:06:33

The crime scene's been cleared and all the evidence bagged and sent to the lab.

0:06:330:06:37

So when will we get an autopsy report?

0:06:370:06:41

OK, thanks. Report's on its way.

0:06:410:06:44

This guy they're sending from London.

0:06:460:06:49

He'll be good, won't he?

0:06:490:06:52

-Who knows?

-They won't just send any old...

0:06:520:06:54

GOAT BLEETS

0:06:540:06:55

I better feed the goat.

0:06:570:06:59

The chief's monitor still works though, doesn't it?

0:06:590:07:02

Sure, why?

0:07:020:07:03

Saint-Marie was colonised by the French,

0:07:060:07:09

who lost it to the British, who lost it to the Dutch.

0:07:090:07:13

The Dutch lost it back to the French.

0:07:130:07:17

The French then handed it back to the British in the mid-'70s.

0:07:170:07:21

So, about 30 per cent of the population is still French.

0:07:210:07:25

French. Great.

0:07:250:07:27

Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse.

0:07:270:07:29

LOUD CHATTER

0:07:490:07:53

Welcome to Honore Station!

0:08:110:08:13

I got to go, the Commissioner's here.

0:08:130:08:16

Sir.

0:08:170:08:20

So, team, Dwayne, Fidel,

0:08:200:08:22

this is Detective Inspector Richard Poole from the Met in London.

0:08:220:08:27

Thank you, I'll take over from here.

0:08:270:08:31

Right then, I want everything you've got

0:08:310:08:33

on DI Hulme's death on my desk immediately.

0:08:330:08:36

And if you could get on to IT

0:08:360:08:39

to sort out the log in details for my PC.

0:08:390:08:41

It's imperative I get on the network ASAP.

0:08:410:08:43

(Pen-pusher.)

0:08:430:08:46

(This is not going to go well.)

0:08:460:08:50

Sorry my monitor won't turn on.

0:08:500:08:51

-Ah, this heat!

-Then take your jacket off.

0:08:560:09:00

DI Hulme's been dead 48 hours, is this all you've got?

0:09:000:09:04

Where's the Forensics Report. Ballistics? DNA?

0:09:040:09:08

-We'll have them soon.

-Who's this?

0:09:080:09:10

Everybody in that photograph was on the guest list for the party, apart from that woman.

0:09:100:09:14

And neither Lord or Lady Salcombe

0:09:140:09:17

or any of their guests knew who she was or what she was doing there.

0:09:170:09:20

-Statements?

-In the file.

0:09:200:09:22

Is it always this hot?

0:09:220:09:23

No.

0:09:230:09:25

Sometimes it's a lot hotter.

0:09:250:09:27

Look, I'll be honest with you.

0:09:340:09:36

This, whole Caribbean thing, I mean I'm sure it's very nice, but erm...

0:09:360:09:40

Well it's not really my idea of, er...

0:09:400:09:42

So, as soon as I've solved this case and I've got my luggage, I'm on the next plane home.

0:09:440:09:49

I can't think why they sent me.

0:09:490:09:51

-Sorry, where is here?

-I thought you might like to see where you're staying before we go up to the house.

0:09:510:09:56

This is where we put the foreign officers. Like you and Charlie Hulme.

0:09:560:10:02

This is Charlie's old house?

0:10:020:10:04

You can freshen up and I'll pick you up in an hour.

0:10:040:10:07

Christ!

0:11:120:11:15

No, no, it's terrible, the airline have lost my luggage,

0:11:330:11:37

it's about 400 degrees in the shade, and they've put me up in some kind of shack.

0:11:370:11:43

Oh, right, yes, of course, er...

0:11:430:11:46

I think I've got three case files in my in tray that should be in my pending tray

0:11:460:11:50

and, erm, there's a case file in my pending tray I should have swept to my out tray, or my in tray?

0:11:500:11:55

It's no longer pending, is the point, sir. Thank you.

0:11:550:11:59

Sorry it's in such a mess, you know.

0:11:590:12:02

It seemed like quite a rush to get me out here.

0:12:020:12:05

Yep, yep, that's everything.

0:12:050:12:08

Oh, although I did leave a tangerine in the top left0hand drawer of my desk, if you, er...

0:12:080:12:14

That's very kind, yeah, top left-hand... Thank you.

0:12:140:12:17

-CAR HORN BEEPS

-Oh, er, yeah, here's my car.

0:12:170:12:21

Yeah, no, er, I think they're very pleased to have me here, if I'm honest.

0:12:220:12:27

The welcome's been very, er...

0:12:270:12:30

Yeah, you know, and the accommodation is very... Ah!

0:12:300:12:34

A bloody splinter!

0:12:340:12:35

Oh, God! Yeah, no, no, it's fine, it's fine.

0:12:350:12:39

Yeah, it does, it does a little bit. Yeah, yeah. Well, thank you for sending me, sir.

0:12:390:12:44

Yeah OK, yeah, er, sorry, gotta go. Yeah, bye.

0:12:440:12:49

-CAR HORN BEEPS

-All right! I'm coming.

0:12:560:12:58

So how did a British policeman get mixed up with an aristocrat?

0:13:360:13:39

-I don't know.

-Then what was he like?

0:13:390:13:42

Who, Charlie? Fun. Not your typical Englishman.

0:13:420:13:47

-Charismatic, you know?

-What do you mean by a typical Englishman?

0:13:470:13:51

-Detective Inspector Richard Poole, Metropolitan Police.

-Oh, yes, come in.

0:13:510:13:55

-Thank you.

-Well, I was out here serving drinks to the guests.

0:13:580:14:01

It had just gone eight o'clock.

0:14:010:14:03

Then there was a gunshot from the study.

0:14:050:14:08

-And the alarms went off.

-So what did you do then?

0:14:100:14:13

Well, I waited for the police to arrive.

0:14:130:14:17

Did you see this woman that night?

0:14:180:14:21

No.

0:14:230:14:25

Come on, Darleen, you've got to have something on him.

0:14:290:14:34

Because you've read his file!

0:14:340:14:36

There's got to be some dirt.

0:14:360:14:38

I'll take you to the Bay Cove.

0:14:390:14:43

So that's it?! OK, bye.

0:14:430:14:45

-His department threw a party for him when he left.

-Oh, so he's popular.

0:14:480:14:51

No, they threw the party after he'd gone.

0:14:510:14:56

-What's that?

-It's a laser tape measure.

0:15:040:15:08

Accurate to a millimetre, over 150 metres.

0:15:080:15:11

We do have tape measures on Saint-Marie, you know.

0:15:110:15:13

Not like this you don't, Sergeant Thomson.

0:15:130:15:17

Now, when DI Hulme's body was found, he was holding a book.

0:15:170:15:20

A travel guide to Europe. Why?

0:15:200:15:24

-And this is the vase, then, that was found smashed on the night?

-Mm-hmm.

0:15:240:15:29

-When the room was locked down, could anyone else have got in?

-No.

0:15:290:15:32

Not until I entered the code, and it can only be opened from the outside.

0:15:320:15:38

-Death was instantaneous?

-He was killed by a .22 bullet.

0:15:400:15:43

Shot up through the throat and straight into his skull.

0:15:430:15:46

It could almost be suicide, couldn't it, but for two things.

0:15:460:15:49

One, gunshot and then alarm. How did Charlie shoot himself and then shut down a heavy steel door?

0:15:490:15:54

And secondly, if it was suicide, why didn't we find a pistol?

0:15:540:15:58

Then, if it was murder...

0:15:580:16:00

How did the murderer kill DI Hulme and then escape from a locked steel room?

0:16:000:16:03

James Lavender. How do you do?

0:16:030:16:05

Can you tell me exactly where you were standing when the gun went off?

0:16:050:16:09

-Fortunately for me, when the gun went off, I was down here on my beach.

-Oh, I see.

0:16:090:16:13

Your beach? Little proprietorial, aren't we?

0:16:130:16:16

Well, I do own it.

0:16:160:16:18

Right, and what were you doing down here?

0:16:180:16:21

I was down here for a touch of privacy with a special friend.

0:16:210:16:27

-A special friend who wasn't necessarily your wife?

-Which was rather the problem.

0:16:270:16:32

James?

0:16:320:16:35

My wife Sarah spotted us.

0:16:350:16:37

The argument was quick, wordless. Ended with a large glass of wine all over her dress.

0:16:390:16:44

That means you were at the party when the gun went off?

0:16:440:16:47

No, I came back down here. But my friend had gone.

0:16:470:16:50

And how well do you know the deceased?

0:16:500:16:53

Not at all. Maybe Sarah invited her.

0:16:530:16:56

Sorry do we have to, er...

0:16:570:16:59

-And do you own a .22 pistol?

-No, I don't know the first thing about guns.

0:16:590:17:03

Wouldn't know one end from another.

0:17:030:17:05

But you've really dressed for the Caribbean, haven't you?

0:17:050:17:08

Yeah. Having heard the gunshot, what did you do next?

0:17:080:17:11

Well, then the alarms went off. I didn't know what was going on, so I hid.

0:17:110:17:17

Until I saw the police arrive.

0:17:170:17:19

I see the safe was open. How many people know the combination to open it?

0:17:240:17:28

Well, I do, of course. And my wife.

0:17:280:17:31

-That's it? Just the two of you?

-Yeah.

0:17:310:17:33

-Well, did you open it that night?

-No.

0:17:330:17:35

-Or give DI Hulme the combination?

-No.

0:17:350:17:38

Then your wife must have opened it.

0:17:380:17:41

You'll have to ask her yourself, won't you?

0:17:410:17:43

My, my dress was ruined. I was humiliated.

0:17:430:17:46

I came back to the house.

0:17:460:17:48

So this is where I was when the alarm went off.

0:17:480:17:52

-And what did you do next?

-I came in here to get dressed.

0:17:520:17:57

-Did you invite DI Hulme to the party?

-No. Didn't my husband?

0:17:570:18:01

He says he didn't.

0:18:010:18:03

-On the day of the party, did you open the safe?

-No.

0:18:040:18:08

-Or give DI Hulme the combination so he could open it?

-No.

0:18:080:18:12

She's lying, isn't she?

0:18:160:18:18

One of them must have opened the safe, but why?

0:18:180:18:21

We've got a British policeman murdered in a rich man's panic room

0:18:210:18:24

with an old book clutched in his hands.

0:18:240:18:26

A safe that's open and a vase that's smashed.

0:18:260:18:30

As for suspects, there are only two people without an alibi.

0:18:300:18:35

James, because he was down on his beach alone, and Sarah, because she was taking a shower.

0:18:350:18:39

Not that any of this matters.

0:18:390:18:41

It doesn't get us any closer to understanding the how.

0:18:410:18:44

How did the murderer kill Hulme and escape from a locked room? It's impossible.

0:18:440:18:48

Right, I need to see the pieces from the vase

0:18:480:18:51

-and the book Charlie was holding, but first I need to see the body.

-That won't be possible.

0:18:510:18:56

-What won't? Seeing the body?

-No, none of it.

0:18:560:18:59

The book, the body, the vase - none of it is here.

0:18:590:19:02

-What are you saying?

-It's in Basse-Terre.

-Fine, we'll get sandwiches on the way.

0:19:020:19:05

-Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe.

-Fine.

0:19:050:19:09

Which is a completely different island.

0:19:090:19:12

-What?

-We don't have forensic labs and DNA analysis and ballistics here.

0:19:140:19:19

We are just a small island, so I bag the evidence from the murder

0:19:190:19:23

-and it all gets flown to Guadeloupe.

-Then how are we supposed to solve this case?

0:19:230:19:27

-We'll get their reports.

-When?

0:19:270:19:30

Arrange for the vase and the book to be sent here by tomorrow.

0:19:300:19:33

-Can you manage that?

-Of course, sir.

0:19:330:19:36

-How do you get anything done on this island?

-Beats me.

0:19:510:19:55

It's a wonder how we get out of bed in the morning.

0:19:550:19:58

How are we supposed to find this mystery woman,

0:19:580:20:02

when all we've got is a photograph of the back of her head?

0:20:020:20:07

I remember when Charlie Hulme first got here,

0:20:070:20:10

trying to reorganise the whole filing system.

0:20:100:20:12

-Yes, I remember that.

-He had that whole alphabetical thing going on,

0:20:120:20:16

would have taken us months if I hadn't talked him out of it.

0:20:160:20:19

-I'll try in there.

-OK.

0:20:190:20:21

Lily, how are you getting on with the...

0:20:210:20:25

But why does he want us to do...

0:20:250:20:26

But that's just a waste of our time.

0:20:280:20:30

I'll get Fidel on it. OK?

0:20:320:20:33

No luck.

0:20:330:20:35

He wants the smashed vase and the book brought back from Guadeloupe.

0:20:350:20:38

But why? They'll have only just got there.

0:20:380:20:40

Maybe he wants to colour-code them!

0:20:400:20:43

Hello?

0:21:240:21:26

Who are you?

0:21:260:21:28

I'm Detective Inspector Richard Pool of the Metropolitan Police.

0:21:280:21:33

Who are you?

0:21:330:21:34

I, erm... I am Mr Hulme's cleaner.

0:21:340:21:38

You're his cleaner?

0:21:390:21:41

Well, I won't get in your way. You've got your work cut out.

0:21:420:21:46

Thank you, sir.

0:21:480:21:49

-So, are you a friend of Charlie's?

-Something like that.

0:21:510:21:58

You're from England, right?

0:21:580:22:00

-Ah, you can tell, can you?

-Yeah.

0:22:000:22:04

Erm, what are you doing here? Is it a holiday, sir?

0:22:040:22:08

You haven't heard, have you?

0:22:100:22:11

Heard what?

0:22:120:22:14

SHE SOBS

0:22:150:22:17

And he was such a nice man.

0:22:270:22:30

-So full of life, not your typical...

-Yes, I've heard, yeah.

0:22:300:22:34

But who would kill him?

0:22:340:22:37

We're pursuing a number of lines of inquiries.

0:22:370:22:40

-Are you, are you staying here, sir?

-Er, yes, apparently so.

0:22:430:22:48

-And will you be here long?

-I hope not.

0:22:480:22:52

Oh, do you need a cleaner?

0:22:520:22:54

Or laundry? I could always send any of your suits...

0:22:550:22:59

No, it's fine, really, don't worry.

0:22:590:23:01

I'll just, erm, borrow the odd item from Mr Hulme.

0:23:010:23:05

-They're not all clean.

-Oh, please!

0:23:050:23:07

You know I never thought I'd get fed up going from bar to bar talking to women.

0:23:140:23:18

-Know what I'm wondering?

-What?

0:23:180:23:20

-Maybe he'll stay.

-Who?

0:23:200:23:23

-The new chief.

-Hey, hey.

0:23:230:23:27

Our new boss, he's many things. And I could probably draw up a long list, but he's no chief, OK?

0:23:270:23:34

No! You lost my suitcase, so you can find my suitcase.

0:24:000:24:06

What do you mean you've got no record of it? I filled in the form and gave it to Daphne.

0:24:060:24:10

Daphne! She was standing by the lost luggage counter when I lost my...

0:24:100:24:15

I'll ring you back.

0:24:150:24:17

Shoo!

0:24:200:24:21

HE SNIFFS

0:24:450:24:47

Where can I get a .22 calibre gun and some blank rounds?

0:25:070:25:10

-Best if I don't ask?

-It's always best if you don't ask.

0:25:130:25:18

So the book and vase have arrived from Guadeloupe.

0:25:180:25:21

-Hey, Smithy!

-Well, done, Lily. Good work.

0:25:210:25:24

-So this is it? The book Charlie was holding when he was shot.

-Mm-hmm.

0:25:240:25:28

What's so special about it?

0:25:280:25:30

Ah! And now the pieces from the smashed vase.

0:25:310:25:35

-Yeah, yes, this is all good. I should be able to...

-There are still two more bags, sir.

0:25:350:25:39

-Even so, a bit of glue and, er...

-OK, the gun is sorted.

0:25:390:25:44

Well, when you get it, bring it straight to James Lavender's house.

0:25:440:25:49

-Lily and I are going there now.

-We are? Why?

0:25:490:25:51

Because it turns out Lady Salcombe's been lying to us.

0:25:510:25:54

Good morning, Lady Salcombe.

0:26:130:26:15

Please, call me Sarah.

0:26:150:26:17

Then tell me, Sarah, why did you lie to me?

0:26:170:26:20

-I'm sorry?

-You knew Charlie Hulme.

0:26:200:26:22

-No, I didn't!

-You'd been to his house before, hadn't you?

0:26:220:26:25

I smelled a perfume on one of his towels, a perfume I'd only smelled once before in your dressing room.

0:26:250:26:30

You shot Charlie Hulme.

0:26:320:26:33

-What? No!

-In the Panic Room that night...

-No I didn't.

-Then you went for a shower,

0:26:330:26:37

-washing off evidence.

-I didn't kill Charlie!

-You did, Sarah, in cold blood!

0:26:370:26:41

-You put a gun to his throat and pulled the trigger.

-No, I didn't kill him, I loved him!

0:26:410:26:46

I'd always worried that James would find out about Charlie and me,

0:26:460:26:51

but when I saw him shot dead...

0:26:510:26:53

You think James killed him?

0:26:530:26:57

-Charlie was investigating my husband.

-Why?

0:26:570:26:59

-He said he didn't dare tell me, my life would be in danger.

-It was you.

0:26:590:27:04

You gave Charlie the combination to the safe, didn't you?

0:27:040:27:08

Charlie said, there was a book in the safe

0:27:080:27:12

and that if he could just get a hold of it,

0:27:120:27:14

he would be able to put my husband in prison.

0:27:140:27:16

We've seen it, it's just a guidebook. What's so special about it?

0:27:160:27:20

Apologies for interrupting. Your colleagues say they're ready.

0:27:200:27:24

-Dwayne. Psst! Dwayne. So, who is your prime suspect?

-Sorry?

0:27:240:27:30

Well, we're having a little sweepstake, so, you know, a nod in the right direction?

0:27:300:27:35

It's a bit of a mystery so far.

0:27:350:27:38

We're thinking of fitting up one of the staff.

0:27:380:27:41

Listen, when I'm dressed like this, don't mess with me, OK?

0:27:430:27:46

-OK, Dwayne and Fidel, are you in position.

-Yep.

0:27:530:27:56

-Are you sure these are blanks?

-Yes.

0:27:590:28:02

-Did either of you hear that?

-You fired that gun yet?

0:28:080:28:11

The Detective Inspector's going to fire again.

0:28:130:28:16

-You hear that?

-No, nothing.

0:28:200:28:24

This is a .22 pistol. The same calibre as the gun that killed Charlie Hulme,

0:28:260:28:31

so if Dwayne and Fidel can't hear me firing on a day like today,

0:28:310:28:34

-what did the guests hear on the night of the party?

-The gunshot that killed Charlie Hulme.

-No.

0:28:340:28:39

Any gunshot they heard must have come from a larger calibre gun. A louder gun.

0:28:390:28:44

Ah! Well, if it's a louder gun you're looking for?

0:28:440:28:46

-You said you didn't own a gun.

-No, I said I didn't own a .22 pistol.

0:28:460:28:50

But if it's a large gun you're after... Darling?

0:28:500:28:53

What large gun?

0:28:530:28:54

It was my father's, his service revolver. It's been here for years.

0:28:540:28:59

It's gone.

0:29:080:29:11

There's a box of bullets, but the gun's disappeared.

0:29:110:29:15

.38 calibre, Smith Wesson rounds.

0:29:150:29:18

Yup, it's a loud gun. And now it's missing.

0:29:180:29:23

-Who knew it was kept there?

-Me, of course. And...and James.

0:29:230:29:28

-Anyone else?

-No.

0:29:280:29:31

So once again, it's either James or Sarah,

0:29:310:29:35

and I don't peg Sarah as a murderer.

0:29:350:29:37

Are you saying women don't kill people?

0:29:370:29:40

Sir, she doesn't have an alibi for the time of the murder.

0:29:400:29:44

She was having an affair with the deceased.

0:29:440:29:46

She owns a gun she didn't tell us about, which now has gone missing.

0:29:460:29:50

Oh, and she turns up at the scene of the murder having showered and washed her hair?!

0:29:500:29:54

-Well, that at least is understandable.

-What?

0:29:540:29:57

The shower, this unremitting heat. I mean, how many showers do you have a day?

0:29:570:30:00

What's in this book worth dying for?

0:30:070:30:10

If we could just prove the service revolver was fired that night...

0:30:120:30:17

All right, sir?

0:30:200:30:22

Yeah. It'd mean that Charlie could have been killed

0:30:220:30:25

before 8pm with a quiet .22 pistol,

0:30:250:30:27

and the service revolver was only fired at 8pm to establish an apparent time of death.

0:30:270:30:32

You need a break.

0:30:320:30:33

Let's go for a walk.

0:30:340:30:36

Where?

0:30:360:30:38

So, tell me, what's London like?

0:30:410:30:45

Oh, er...

0:30:470:30:48

Noisy, a mess.

0:30:480:30:50

Like being in a bar fight mostly, but, er...

0:30:500:30:53

You love it.

0:30:530:30:54

The only place I'd live.

0:30:540:30:56

What's a typical London experience?

0:30:580:31:00

Hmm? Something that fills you with joy.

0:31:000:31:02

Tell me...

0:31:040:31:06

Er, so...

0:31:080:31:09

Walking into my local, the White Hart.

0:31:110:31:14

It's snowing, bitterly cold outside,

0:31:140:31:18

but there's a fire roaring in the grate,

0:31:180:31:20

the windows misty with condensation.

0:31:200:31:23

And I've got a beer in my hand, sitting in the snug,

0:31:230:31:27

in the chair that I sit in...

0:31:270:31:31

And that first sip.

0:31:310:31:32

Alone?

0:31:320:31:33

Yes, but that feeling.

0:31:360:31:38

You know of, er...belonging, knowing who you are.

0:31:380:31:41

Whatever this is, it's not that.

0:31:450:31:47

OK, so I'll see you tomorrow, shall I?

0:31:560:31:59

Yes, yes. Good idea. Yeah.

0:32:010:32:03

And, thanks again.

0:32:060:32:07

Good night.

0:32:070:32:09

Yeah, good work.

0:32:090:32:11

Er, you've been fantastic.

0:32:130:32:15

Oh, right! Yes, of course. Er...

0:32:300:32:33

It's the bins.

0:32:330:32:36

Have the bin men been yet?

0:32:360:32:37

I wondered if you could go next door

0:32:370:32:39

and just push my bins back onto the driveway,

0:32:390:32:42

you know, where they normally live.

0:32:420:32:44

Oh! Oh, well, if you're at work then, yeah...

0:32:440:32:47

No, no, no, no, I quite understand.

0:32:470:32:49

Although if your wife's at home, maybe she could...

0:32:490:32:52

No, no. Yeah, of course. Yeah, that would be...

0:32:520:32:54

No, no, the bins can just stay there, on the street, until you get home.

0:32:540:32:58

Well, that's very kind of you, Jeremy. Thank you.

0:32:580:33:00

Give my regards to Eileen... Elaine!

0:33:000:33:02

Yeah. Er...

0:33:020:33:04

And, um, the girls.

0:33:040:33:06

Yeah, and don't worry about my bins next week.

0:33:060:33:09

Yeah, fingers crossed, I'll be home by then. Thank you.

0:33:090:33:12

Oh, come on!

0:35:000:35:01

So, that's a date.

0:35:120:35:14

See you in the pool at my friend's mansion in the hills.

0:35:140:35:18

OK, then.

0:35:180:35:20

Bye.

0:35:200:35:21

Bye-bye.

0:35:210:35:24

Who was that?

0:35:260:35:29

A friend.

0:35:290:35:30

I've never seen her before.

0:35:300:35:32

She's a tourist.

0:35:320:35:33

I've been showing her around the island.

0:35:330:35:35

Is the inspector in yet?

0:35:350:35:37

No, he found a key.

0:35:370:35:39

Looks like it's for a safety deposit box.

0:35:390:35:41

Him and Lily have gone to the bank to check it out.

0:35:410:35:44

Just knock on the door when you want to be let out.

0:35:450:35:48

So, Charlie's a policeman abroad.

0:35:510:35:53

It's not necessarily suspicious for him to have a safety deposit box.

0:35:530:35:56

On the other hand...

0:35:560:35:59

Blank.

0:36:060:36:09

Cash, forged passports.

0:36:120:36:15

Human trafficking - it's got to be.

0:36:150:36:17

Up through the Caribbean, and into the States.

0:36:170:36:20

It's a multi-million dollar trade

0:36:200:36:22

and it absolutely relies on corrupt officials.

0:36:220:36:24

But how does all this tie in with James Lavender?

0:36:240:36:28

Oh, well. That, sir, is easy.

0:36:280:36:29

How come?

0:36:290:36:31

Because that is James Lavender's boat.

0:36:310:36:34

We found these in Charlie Hulme's safety deposit box.

0:36:360:36:39

I want them logged and fingerprinted ASAP.

0:36:390:36:41

-Yes. The airport - they've found your luggage.

-Not now.

0:36:410:36:44

Dwayne - Lily's getting a warrant to search James's house and yacht.

0:36:440:36:48

I need you to give me a lift to the harbour, if you would.

0:36:480:36:51

You do have another car, don't you?

0:36:510:36:54

It's not just...

0:36:540:36:55

It's just the one car, isn't it?

0:36:560:36:59

What do you do in emergencies?

0:36:590:37:01

I thought you'd never ask.

0:37:010:37:03

There she is, over there.

0:37:300:37:32

How are we going to get to it?

0:37:320:37:35

No, no. Um...

0:37:380:37:39

We haven't got a search warrant.

0:37:390:37:41

We have now.

0:37:510:37:52

Locked.

0:38:010:38:02

Hey, look what I've found!

0:38:130:38:15

You all right there, sir?

0:38:310:38:33

-People smuggling.

-Told you.

0:38:380:38:40

-Hang on! You're Charlie's cleaner!

-He didn't have a cleaner.

0:38:420:38:46

She was in my house!

0:38:460:38:47

-Dressed like that?

-No, dressed as a cleaner!

0:38:470:38:50

Now what?!

0:38:540:38:55

There you are!

0:39:250:39:26

Remind me to tell you the story of the tortoise and the hare sometime.

0:39:300:39:35

What were you doing on James Lavender's boat?

0:39:550:39:58

OK. What's your relationship with James Lavender?

0:39:590:40:02

What were you doing at Charlie's pretending to be a cleaner?

0:40:020:40:05

Hang on!

0:40:070:40:08

This is you.

0:40:140:40:16

You were at the party that night. Why?

0:40:160:40:20

Is this a formal interview?

0:40:200:40:21

-No, of course not.

-Then why are you talking to me?

0:40:230:40:26

No. Of course.

0:40:280:40:30

I'll arrange for a duty solicitor to visit you immediately.

0:40:300:40:33

SHE LAUGHS

0:40:330:40:35

What's so funny?

0:40:360:40:39

Oh, no... It's just...

0:40:390:40:41

It's 100 degrees in here and you're standing there in a suit and tie

0:40:410:40:45

talking about duty solicitors!

0:40:450:40:48

I'm a British policeman.

0:40:480:40:49

No?! You're kidding me!

0:40:490:40:51

You're there because I found you on a boat that's been used for people smuggling.

0:40:510:40:56

Give me my phone call.

0:40:590:41:03

Fidel, our friend wants her one phone call.

0:41:030:41:05

Yes, sir!

0:41:050:41:06

-Right, Lily, I think it's time to put the squeeze on James Lavender.

-Yes, sir!

0:41:060:41:11

I'm not leaving until we've got it all.

0:41:150:41:17

How the people smuggling works, who that woman is in the cells...

0:41:170:41:21

Oh, and what Charlie was doing in the Panic Room when he was killed.

0:41:210:41:25

Why he was killed, why he was holding the book,

0:41:250:41:27

and how, finally, how Charlie was murdered.

0:41:270:41:33

Oh, no!

0:41:360:41:37

Dead. He must have shot himself.

0:41:450:41:48

It's a .22 pistol, isn't it?

0:41:480:41:50

Just like the one that killed Charlie Hulme.

0:41:500:41:53

This isn't a suicide, sir.

0:41:530:41:56

This is a confession.

0:41:560:41:58

James killed Charlie.

0:41:580:41:59

But someone warned him, didn't they?

0:41:590:42:02

Her one phone call.

0:42:040:42:05

OK, so who did you phone?

0:42:060:42:09

You are in so much trouble.

0:42:110:42:13

Sir, there's been a breakout.

0:42:210:42:23

I'm ringing the coastguard and Interpol.

0:42:230:42:25

We need to alert the airport.

0:42:250:42:27

How did she escape from a cell?!

0:42:270:42:28

Detective Inspector.

0:42:280:42:31

Can I introduce you to Detective Sergeant Camille Bordey?

0:42:310:42:34

Born in Sainte-Marie, trained in Paris,

0:42:340:42:37

but for the last two years has been working undercover on Guadeloupe.

0:42:370:42:41

Making the case against James Lavender.

0:42:410:42:43

And she's back on the island.

0:42:430:42:44

I'm days away from an arrest, so I'd appreciate if you'd...

0:42:440:42:47

There's an undercover officer working on the same case, and you didn't tell me?

0:42:470:42:51

We couldn't. Camille thinks a corrupt officer is helping Lavender. We couldn't take the risk.

0:42:510:42:56

It won't be me, will it?! I've been in Croydon for the last 13 years!

0:42:560:43:00

And if you're looking for your corrupt copper,

0:43:010:43:04

it was Charlie Hulme.

0:43:040:43:06

How do you know that?

0:43:060:43:07

I've got evidence linking him to trafficking and James's yacht.

0:43:070:43:10

Charlie was clearly James's right-hand man.

0:43:100:43:14

-We need to arrest James Lavender right now.

-Small problem.

0:43:140:43:17

Don't tell me, there is some form we have to fill in first in triplicate?

0:43:170:43:21

James Lavender's dead.

0:43:230:43:24

Looks like suicide. Either way, as far as this case goes,

0:43:240:43:29

Charlie Hulme's a dead end, and now so too is James Lavender.

0:43:290:43:33

This place!

0:43:420:43:44

Sir, look, if James killed Charlie and then killed himself,

0:43:440:43:47

I can take over from here and finish the paperwork.

0:43:470:43:50

You could be on the next plane out of here.

0:43:500:43:52

Don't, I'm imagining it now.

0:43:520:43:54

Walking out at Heathrow, being cold...

0:43:540:43:58

Finally being cold again!

0:43:580:44:01

-I never thought I'd miss it.

-Miss what?

0:44:010:44:03

Drizzle. That feeling on your face. Like a wet flannel.

0:44:030:44:07

Oh, England.

0:44:070:44:08

Problem is, we may know what happened,

0:44:080:44:11

but we still don't really know how it happened.

0:44:110:44:13

How was Charlie killed from inside a locked panic room?

0:44:130:44:17

I need you to stay here and conclude the interviews.

0:44:170:44:19

Fidel, you're with me.

0:44:190:44:21

Yes, sir!

0:44:210:44:23

I don't believe it!

0:44:280:44:30

How long?

0:44:300:44:31

You do not ever want to know how long!

0:44:310:44:34

OK, that seems about right.

0:44:340:44:36

This wasn't knocked over. Look, here and here.

0:44:360:44:41

It was shot from slightly above and angling downwards.

0:44:410:44:45

Now, if you go over towards the desk...

0:44:450:44:49

Let's say you're James.

0:44:490:44:50

You think James shot Charlie?

0:44:500:44:52

At this stage, all I know is that somebody shot this vase.

0:44:520:44:55

But, with a .22 bullet or a .38? That's the question.

0:44:550:44:59

The whole case rather depends on us finding the answer.

0:44:590:45:03

So, if you just hold that absolutely still,

0:45:030:45:05

let's find out where the bullet went.

0:45:050:45:07

You need to watch out for snakes, sir. They can be in the trees sometimes too.

0:45:290:45:34

Oh, God!

0:45:410:45:43

I thought you were a... Where have you been?

0:45:440:45:48

I figured the tortoise would get there a whole lot quicker with a metal detector.

0:45:480:45:53

DETECTOR CRACKLES

0:45:550:46:00

DETECTOR BEEPS LOUDLY

0:46:020:46:04

Finally, proof!

0:46:250:46:27

The bullet that shot the vase on the night of the murder was a .38,

0:46:270:46:31

fired by a bloody loud service revolver.

0:46:310:46:36

PHONE RINGS

0:46:360:46:38

Oh, no, not again!

0:46:380:46:40

Yes, what? Sorry?

0:46:400:46:43

No, no, no, start again.

0:46:430:46:45

My luggage.

0:46:450:46:46

What do you mean it's still in Heathrow?

0:46:460:46:49

You lost it in Sainte-Marie!

0:46:490:46:51

Eh? Oh!

0:46:520:46:54

Oh, I see.

0:46:550:46:57

No, sorry. Just keep it in Heathrow, please, and I'll be back...soon.

0:46:590:47:04

In fact, I'll be on the next plane out of here!

0:47:040:47:07

Are you OK, sir?

0:47:090:47:10

They never put my luggage on the plane!

0:47:100:47:14

Yep.

0:47:150:47:16

Yes, of course!

0:47:180:47:19

Oh!

0:47:190:47:20

It's the heat. It's finally got the better of him.

0:47:200:47:23

You fire the gun...

0:47:230:47:24

-Should I call for an ambulance?

-Yes, you do!

0:47:240:47:27

Of course! Thank you, Fidel!

0:47:270:47:29

Yes, OK, so the phone call and then...

0:47:290:47:34

Into the sea with you.

0:47:340:47:35

Brilliant, brilliant.

0:47:350:47:38

Leaving the murderer free to...

0:47:380:47:40

commit murder.

0:47:400:47:42

Er, just loosen your tie a moment there, sir.

0:47:420:47:46

It's very, very simple.

0:47:460:47:47

Call the ambulance.

0:47:470:47:49

No, call the Commissioner. He needs to be here for the arrest.

0:47:490:47:52

You said it. Get the Commissioner here as soon as possible.

0:47:520:47:55

But why kill him in the first place, that's the question?

0:47:550:47:58

But then, if the bullet's not the bullet...

0:47:580:48:01

What if...?

0:48:010:48:03

Yes!

0:48:070:48:09

-How many fingers am I holding up?

-James Lavender had a mobile phone on him when he died. Get it!

0:48:090:48:13

I'm also going to need the .22 pistol he was holding when we found his body.

0:48:130:48:19

While you're getting them, you and me are going to have a little chat.

0:48:190:48:23

You know, I should have realised the lessons of my luggage sooner.

0:48:300:48:34

Your luggage?

0:48:340:48:35

My case was never loaded onto the plane at Heathrow.

0:48:350:48:38

So, when the hold was opened in Sainte-Marie,

0:48:380:48:40

it appeared to have disappeared,

0:48:400:48:42

whereas in reality, it was never in there in the first place.

0:48:420:48:45

-How does that help?

-When the panic room was opened,

0:48:450:48:48

we thought the killer had disappeared, but in reality, the murderer was never in there.

0:48:480:48:53

Please just tell me who killed Charlie.

0:48:530:48:56

When Charlie investigated your husband, he set in motion a chain of events

0:48:560:49:01

that led to his murder and your husband's.

0:49:010:49:04

On the night of the party, James found Charlie in the panic room, and realised he had to kill him.

0:49:040:49:09

The only problem being, James doesn't know his way round a gun,

0:49:110:49:14

as he told us, so he only managed to shoot the vase.

0:49:140:49:18

At which point, Charlie does the only logical thing,

0:49:180:49:21

and locks himself safely inside the panic room.

0:49:210:49:25

Now, James has just tried to kill a policeman, so what does he do?

0:49:250:49:29

He goes back to his beach,

0:49:300:49:33

where he disposed of the service revolver

0:49:330:49:36

before making a call.

0:49:360:49:39

In fact, he must have made a phone call.

0:49:390:49:41

He didn't kill Charlie Hulme, so who did he get to do it?

0:49:410:49:44

You can't be sure it wasn't James.

0:49:440:49:46

I can!

0:49:460:49:47

James only managed to shoot a vase using your service revolver.

0:49:470:49:51

The only gunshot that was heard on the night.

0:49:510:49:54

Don't you see what this means?

0:49:540:49:56

We have no way of knowing when Charlie was killed,

0:49:560:49:59

because nobody heard the .22 gunshot that killed him.

0:49:590:50:04

He could have been killed at any time on the night of the murder.

0:50:040:50:08

-So, are you saying he was killed before the panic room was shut down?

-Haven't you worked it out yet?

-No.

0:50:080:50:13

I know who the murderer is.

0:50:130:50:16

And so do you, Sergeant Thompson, because it's you.

0:50:160:50:18

You murdered Charlie Hulme.

0:50:210:50:24

-Are you insane?

-No. Dwayne?

0:50:240:50:27

You quickly realised killing Charlie only bought you time,

0:50:270:50:30

isn't that right?

0:50:300:50:32

'How did the murderer kill Charlie and escape from a locked steel room?'

0:50:320:50:36

What you needed next was a sacrificial lamb,

0:50:360:50:38

so you put a safety deposit key in my room,

0:50:380:50:40

knowing that I'd find it the next time I showered.

0:50:400:50:43

I mean, how many showers do you have a day?

0:50:430:50:46

Because once I had the key,

0:50:460:50:49

you could lead me to the safety deposit box,

0:50:490:50:51

with all the evidence you'd planted to create links

0:50:510:50:54

between Charlie Hulme, human trafficking and James Lavender,

0:50:540:50:57

who you killed before picking up the warrant for us to search his yacht.

0:50:570:51:02

Sir! This is all lies!

0:51:120:51:14

Can you prove any of this?

0:51:140:51:16

Charlie was found shot dead inside a locked panic room,

0:51:160:51:19

on his own, no gun nearby.

0:51:190:51:21

If you think about it, as he's the only person inside,

0:51:210:51:24

he must have been alive when the room was locked down.

0:51:240:51:27

Who else could have shut the door apart from him?

0:51:270:51:30

He was the only person found in there.

0:51:300:51:32

And if he was alive when he locked the room down...

0:51:320:51:35

'So, everybody out and don't touch anything.'

0:51:350:51:38

..he must also have been alive when Sergeant Thompson opened it up.

0:51:380:51:42

SILENCED GUNSHOT

0:51:420:51:45

Even if he was dead within seconds of her arriving on the scene.

0:51:470:51:50

You see, this wasn't an impossible murder.

0:51:500:51:53

It merely happened after the police arrived.

0:51:530:51:56

Isn't that so, Sergeant?

0:51:560:51:58

Now, I wonder who James rang that night,

0:51:580:52:01

having just attempted to murder a British policeman?

0:52:010:52:04

Ah, well now, here we are.

0:52:040:52:07

Because if he rang you, Sergeant,

0:52:070:52:09

that's going to be pretty incriminating, don't you think?

0:52:090:52:12

HER PHONE RINGS

0:52:130:52:15

Hello?

0:52:290:52:30

Why did he ring you, if not to say

0:52:300:52:32

that Charlie was going to take you both down, unless you took him out?

0:52:320:52:36

Why would I kill Charlie Hulme?

0:52:390:52:41

Are you saying women don't kill people?

0:52:410:52:44

Because of the book he held, which he'd got from the safe,

0:52:440:52:47

and which was about to put you and James in prison.

0:52:470:52:50

The book he was holding was a travel guide.

0:52:500:52:52

-But was it, sir?

-Yes, it was.

0:52:520:52:54

And yet, with this case, nothing has been as it seems.

0:52:540:52:57

The gun heard on the night wasn't the gun that killed Charlie.

0:52:570:53:00

The bullet that was fired wasn't the bullet that killed Charlie.

0:53:000:53:05

So this is what I thought.

0:53:050:53:06

What if the book Charlie was holding wasn't the book Charlie was holding?

0:53:060:53:10

It's Charlie Hulme.

0:53:100:53:12

Imagine the book WAS incriminating, and you're Lily.

0:53:120:53:15

What do you do? Well, you clear the crime scene, standard procedure,

0:53:150:53:18

but then what?

0:53:180:53:19

Call an ambulance. Now!

0:53:190:53:22

Everyone's seen the book in his hand. You can't remove it, so you swap it,

0:53:220:53:27

for any book on these shelves that looks the same.

0:53:270:53:30

The innocent book going into Charlie's hands,

0:53:300:53:34

and the incriminating book going back on the shelves,

0:53:340:53:37

concealed amongst all these others.

0:53:370:53:40

Hidden in plain view, as it were.

0:53:400:53:42

And what's more, I reckon I can do this in one.

0:53:420:53:46

Oh. Charlie Hulme's blood on this.

0:53:520:53:54

You see?

0:53:540:53:55

Everything you'd need to prove James's involvement in human trafficking.

0:53:550:54:01

Money, dates, cargoes...

0:54:010:54:02

How did you just do that?

0:54:020:54:04

This is the only one with no writing down the spine.

0:54:040:54:07

I imagine you were planning to come back some time and retrieve it.

0:54:070:54:11

Oh, your name's in here.

0:54:110:54:14

All the way through, in fact.

0:54:140:54:16

And, er, here's a fingerprint in Charlie Hulme's blood.

0:54:160:54:19

I mean, logically, if you think about it,

0:54:190:54:21

that's going to be quite hard to explain if it turns out to be yours.

0:54:210:54:25

You know, I have to take my hat off to you.

0:54:270:54:29

You had me pointing this way and that.

0:54:290:54:31

And there were times, I must confess, when you were...

0:54:310:54:36

dazzling.

0:54:360:54:37

You killed two people?

0:54:370:54:39

Why?

0:54:390:54:40

Do you know how many times I've been passed over?

0:54:430:54:46

Someone sent from London to do a job I should be doing!

0:54:460:54:50

Charlie Hulme, and now him!

0:54:500:54:52

So, if I'm not good enough,

0:54:520:54:54

why not take the money instead, and a lot of it?

0:54:540:54:58

Enough to get away from this. Away from you!

0:54:580:55:02

There's a whole world out there, you know, Fidel.

0:55:020:55:05

I don't think you'll ever leave this island again.

0:55:050:55:08

Dwayne, Fidel...

0:55:080:55:10

If you would.

0:55:100:55:11

Sure thing, Chief.

0:55:110:55:13

Ay, yai yai!

0:55:440:55:46

What if I'd trodden on you?

0:55:460:55:48

There's no point looking at me like that, I'm off.

0:55:520:55:54

It isn't a stitch up.

0:56:070:56:09

Really?! So my super in London arranges for me to be posted here,

0:56:090:56:12

you agree to it, and it's not a stitch up?

0:56:120:56:15

Of course not. It's just a sensible re-allocation of resources.

0:56:150:56:19

Look, I'm sure the Caribbean's great - beach holidays and snorkelling,

0:56:190:56:23

but I can't work here, let alone live here!

0:56:230:56:25

Has anyone noticed, there's a tree growing in my front room!

0:56:250:56:28

I've got no luggage.

0:56:310:56:32

Ah!

0:56:320:56:34

What?

0:56:350:56:37

You know how your luggage was left at Heathrow?

0:56:370:56:40

Your suitcase, Chief.

0:56:430:56:45

Anything else?

0:56:450:56:47

Any other bombshells I should know about?

0:56:470:56:49

Of course not, no!

0:56:490:56:51

Well, maybe one.

0:56:510:56:54

No!

0:56:570:56:59

Tell me about it.

0:56:590:57:00

You're undercover!

0:57:000:57:02

You blew that when you arrested me, remember?

0:57:020:57:04

No-one knows you're a copper!

0:57:040:57:06

-I do!

-What?

0:57:060:57:08

If a crook like Marlon knows, then everyone in the underworld will know by breakfast.

0:57:080:57:12

-I'm not a crook!

-ALL: Yes, you are!

0:57:120:57:14

-Can't you go back to Guadeloupe?

-Can't you go back to London?

0:57:140:57:19

-I'm trying.

-Try harder!

0:57:190:57:20

-I can't work with her!

-I can't work with him!

0:57:200:57:23

The paperwork is done, you're both staying!

0:57:230:57:25

So, as Commissioner, I'm very pleased to say,

0:57:250:57:29

on behalf of the Royal Sainte-Marie Police Force,

0:57:290:57:32

welcome to paradise.

0:57:320:57:34

Don't worry, we'll look after her.

0:57:470:57:49

In the event of Lisa's death, do you inherit her fortune?

0:57:490:57:53

-Who'd kill a bride?

-One of this lot!

0:57:530:57:56

Surely you're not saying that any of us are under suspicion?

0:57:560:57:59

I'm a police officer, and I want a cup of tea.

0:57:590:58:01

-You like them?

-Very much.

0:58:030:58:05

I've got a date.

0:58:050:58:07

You're coming with us.
