Could have sworn he was going to win it for us.
OK, Dad. Down to you.
I'll do my best, son.
A four and a one, Jerry. That's all we need.
You make it sound so easy, Gus.
-He's digging it in pretty short -
but you should get at least one bad ball.
It's all right, he's just getting his eye in.
Come on, Jerry.
Yes, Jerry, come on boy!

Ladies and gentlemen! First round on me!
Mr Umpire. What will it be?
Thank you, Captain. But I must, as ever, remain impartial.
Although saying no looks like you are favouring the opposition.
Then I suppose I'd better have a small rum.
Large rum coming up.
Everybody? Team photo!
-Torey? Where you going? We need you in the photo!
Time running out, Jerry.
I need a answer.
Right! Let the party begin!

Mum. Where'd Dad go?
I thought he was here.
He went to get more beers. He didn't come back.
Probably fall asleep in the office.
I need to get my things.
I'll go wake him up.
Where this boy there?
Jerry, wake up man!
Jerry, wake up!
Do you know the world record for solving one of these things
currently stands at 4.9 seconds.
And how long have you been going?
Erm...exactly two hours eight minutes.
Is that why you came in early? To try and solve it?
No, I came in early cos I couldn't sleep.
I found this in the evidence store.
I thought it would be a good distraction.
Distraction? From what?
Or rather the prospect of her imminent departure from Saint Marie.
You haven't talked to her about how you feel then?
This was meant to be a holiday romance. No strings attached.
Until I stupidly fell in love with her.
But if that's how you feel, then you should tell her.
-I'd better get that.
Sergeant Cassell. Yes, sir, we're on our way.
That was the Commissioner.
There's been a fatal shooting at the Honore Cricket Club.
I see. We'd better get over there, then.
How did the Commissioner get to hear about it?
I believe he's head umpire at the club.
Of course he is.
Good morning, Commissioner.
I'm afraid there's not much good about it, Inspector.
This is a sad day indeed.
Jerome Martin was an upstanding member of Honore Cricket Club
and a fine man to boot.
My condolences, sir. Do we know what happened?
Mr Martin spent last night in the clubhouse...
with his team and his family, celebrating a notable victory.
Apparently the party went right through the night.
He was last seen leaving the bar at six this morning.
The team captain, Gus Coleman,
found his body here about 15 minutes later.
Pretty much dead centre of the wicket.
Do we know why Mr Martin was out here at 6am, sir?
We do not.
He went to get some beers from the clubhouse office. Next thing...
The paramedics could find no other signs of injury or assault.
Well it doesn't look like robbery, sir.
Meaning there's a decent chance the victim knew his killer.
Looks like he was shot from over here, sir. Shell casing.
I'd say 9mm calibre.
Supermax bullet. Typically used with automatic handguns.
So, our killer stands here, six metres away from the victim.
Single fatal shot to the chest. POW.
He falls forward.
It almost feels like an execution.
How many people were still here when the body was found, sir?
Four. I told them to wait in the clubhouse.
Let's see what they've got to say.
Dwayne, JP, I'd like you to search the office.
Given the victim was heading there shortly before he was found dead,
there may be some indication as to why he ended up out here instead.
- Yes, sir. - Excuse me?
Gus Coleman. Team Captain.
I'm sorry, I...
I just needed to get some air.
We need to ask you a few questions. With the others.
I'll go and get everyone else.
Thank you for waiting around.
I-I'm very sorry for your loss.
I assume that Jerome played in the match yesterday?
It was a benefit game to raise money for Torey's medical treatment.
I had a car accident about five months ago.
Damaged my spinal cord. That's why...
We're trying to raise money to send Torey to America
for electrical stimulation.
We hope he might be able to walk again one day.
So if you could just run me through what exactly happened this morning.
The last time you saw Mr Martin was...?
In the bar. About six o'clock.
He headed to the clubhouse office.
We're running low on beers. I'll go get some.
Then after a while, we realised...
he hadn't come back.
Gus said he'd go and get Jerry.
It was a quarter past six by then...
I remember checking my watch.
I need to get my things. I'll go wake him up.
And you came straight back after finding Jerome?
As soon as I found him.
-Call an ambulance!
-What is it?
I called the emergency service straight away.
Mr Browne's call came in at 6:30.
And before Mr Coleman found the body, none of you heard a gunshot?
No. We had music playing.
And with the wind coming in from the shore,
sound gets carried out from that pitch.
So...sorry, will you... Will you excuse us for a moment?
With one missing.
They were in the safe.
It was already unlocked when I tried it.
9mm Supermax. It's a match.
Anyone know what these were doing in the safe?
There should be a gun in there, too.
Sorry. Why was there a gun kept in the safe?
It belonged to me.
I left it there after this place was broken into a couple of years back.
Jerry was here when it happened. Shook him up.
I thought having a gun on the premises might reassure him.
So, who knows the combination?
Only the club committee.
And who is on the club committee?
Well, I am, as Captain. Sabrina is the Social Secretary
and Archer is the Treasurer.
Jerome was our Chairman.
Just you three, then?
Dad told me the combination.
I had to pick up some club paperwork for him once.
So you four are the only people who had access to the gun?
Now, after Jerome went to get some beers -
during the 15 minutes in which he was killed - where were you all?
-In the bar.
It's not a big room, Inspector.
We'd have noticed if someone left it.
Until Gus went to look for Jerry, we were together the whole time.
As they say, we were here the whole time.
So only those four people knew the combination to the safe
that contained the gun
that, potentially, was used to kill Jerome Martin.
I think our killer has to be one of those four people
-currently outside this bar.
Yes, I know - they were all in the clubhouse when it happened.
So if it was one of them - how did they do it?
Well, that is a very good question, Florence.
The answer to which I do not know.
So let's start with the one small thing we do know -
all our four suspects have remained here at the club
ever since the murder occurred -
so, the gun must still be somewhere hereabout.
Dwayne, JP, I want that weapon found.
Someone must've been filming the party.
Oh, well, let's get it back to the station and charge it up.
You never know - maybe it will shed some light on this morning's events.
Tell me. Do you play cricket?
Ah, well, sir, I have actually had a few innings in my time.
Yes, I once got a battling seven not out,
for the school under-14 Third XI against Redbridge.
I almost saved the draw, sir.
Well, here in the Caribbean cricket is in our blood.
Jerome Martin's murder will be felt right across the island.
I trust I can leave it to you and the team
to handle this with the care and respect it deserves.
Yes, of course, sir. We won't let you down.
Is it me or did you sense that Gus was holding back
a little during questioning?
Do you think maybe he knows more than he's letting on?
Yes, I think maybe he does.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Given that the gun wasn't on any of our suspects,
shall we start our search in there or out here?
-Eh? What? What?
Where should we start our search from?
Well, it's either going to be inside the clubhouse or somewhere out here.
I know. I just said that.
And what did you decide on?
I didn't. I was waiting to hear what you thought.
Well, you should've said.
I'm not a mind-reader, you know, JP?
Let's start over here.
Come on. Don't just stand there!
Right, then, Florence.
Let's go through what we know so far.
So, Jerome Martin. 45. Geography teacher.
Member of the Honore Cricket Club for nearly 30 years
and chairman for the last ten.
Found dead at 6:15 this morning in the middle of Honore Cricket pitch
having been shot in the heart.
Which leads us to our suspects.
I think we should start with the victim's wife. Sabrina Martin.
She and Jerome had been married over 20 years.
Since Torey's crash, she's been trying to raise money
to send him to the States for treatment.
Yes, not a cheap endeavour.
Which means, we have to ask the question -
does she benefit financially from her husband's death?
Which brings us to their son Torey.
Now... Just turned 18, I believe...
Yes, yes, just turned 18,
seems to have been quite the cricketing talent.
Five months ago was signed by a professional club in Dominica.
A week later, on his way to a friend's house,
he drove his car into a tree.
And what of the, er, club's treasurer? Archer Browne.
Well, sir. He is 30 years old.
Owns a garage down by the harbour. Family business.
Took it over from his father.
Gus Coleman also works there as a mechanic.
Ah, yes. Gus Coleman. Same age as the victim.
Seems to be an old friend - they went to school together.
Never married. Club captain for the last five years.
So, question one -
just how did the killer manage to shoot Jerome Martin
in the middle of a cricket pitch
when all of our suspects were in the clubhouse at the time it happened?
And question two - why did he have to die?
Sir, I think you should take a look at this.
It's from 3:15 this morning.
The camera was left on record when it was put on the bar.
Torey seems very angry.
Yes, doesn't he just?
Good afternoon. Sorry to interrupt.
Torey, can we have a word?
I'll be inside if you need me.
You know, that was Dad and me.
We played out there every day after school.
He must've been made up when you made professional.
When I signed my contract,
he told me he was the proudest man in the world.
How had you been getting on more recently?
We know you argued with your father last night.
Who told you that?
There was a camera left recording at the bar.
Shows your rather heated exchange.
Yesterday, being back at the club for the first time, it was tough.
Last time I was there, I was one of the players.
Not a spectator sat at the boundary.
I was trying to tell Dad how hard I was finding it,
but he wasn't listening.
-You been drinking again?
-You know I'm sorry about what happened, yeah?
-If I could take it back!
-Why you apologising?
-Dad, leave me alone!
-Just leave me alone!
Why was he apologising?
Ever since the crash, he blamed himself for what happened.
And when he's had a few drinks, it all starts coming out.
Saying if anybody deserves to be in a wheelchair it was him,
and he'd swap places with me in a heartbeat.
Last night I just snapped.
How could your dad think it was his fault you crashed?
The car was a present from him, for turning pro.
And after the crash, the insurance people found out
that the MOT was out of date.
But Dad often used to just forget stuff like that.
-So was your accident caused by a mechanical fault?
I crashed the car because I was driving too fast.
There was nothing wrong with the car.
You know the last thing I said to him?
"Leave me alone".
You OK, son? Come on. Try to eat something.
Thank you, Gus.
Ah, so you're back.
How did you chaps get on searching for the gun?
Er, no sign of it, I'm afraid, Chief.
Yes, we covered every inch of that place. Inside and out.
That's very troubling. That's very troubling indeed.
Because now not only do we not know
how our murderer managed to kill Jerome Martin,
but we also don't know how they then managed to make the gun
disappear after they'd done it.
Right, look. It's getting late. We should call it a day.
But in the morning, Florence,
-I'd like you to chase up that crash report.
Dwayne, JP, financial checks on the victim and all the suspects -
and find out about the victim's will
-and whether any life insurance had been taken out.
And we should also find out
about his phone records and e-mail account.
There was someone doing something by the jeep!
Looked like the bonnet was up. I'm sure of it...
Right, yes, er...
You sure you know what you're looking at there, Chief?
Yes, yes, I think I know my spark plugs from my...my seatbelts.
Why would someone have our bonnet up?
Should I check if anyone saw anything?
Yes. Thank you, JP. What is that?
I think someone's been messing with this engine.
You want me to have a look, see if everything's in order?
Yes, Dwayne, thank you. I think perhaps...you should.
It might be wise to phone a cab to get home tonight
with the jeep out of commission.
Martha's cooking dinner, I would hate to put her timings out.
Probably not a bad idea.
Do you think you might talk to Martha tonight about - you know...?
I don't know, Florence.
I mean I would hate to spoil what little time we have left together
by telling Martha that I've fallen in love with her
only for her to tell me she doesn't feel the same.
Maybe she does feel the same...
Yes. Maybe she does. But then again, maybe she doesn't, you know?
Maybe she can't wait to get back on that plane to London.
Sir? One of the stall-holders did notice a guy
briefly over by the jeep. Said he was wearing blue overalls.
She said she just assumed that he was fixing the jeep.
OK, I'll see you in a couple of days, then! Bye.
-Yeah. That was Alistair from the restaurant.
He's nearly ready for the big opening next week.
He was just taking me through the menu - it sounds amazing.
You know, I thought this was just another job I was going back to,
but...I think I might really enjoy it.
Sounds like a cause for celebration.
-Fancy a beer?
There you go.
-What's that, Catherine?
The beers you ordered.
Are you OK, JP?
Er, I'm fine, Catherine...
This morning we were at the cricket ground
and he just seemed a bit distracted, if I'm to be honest with you.
Dwayne's father walked out on him and his family
when he was a just a boy.
I think he must've only been six when it happened.
I don't think they've heard from him since.
He used to take Dwayne to the cricket,
maybe it brought back some memories he'd rather forget.
-Everything OK, sir?
Er, yes. Fine, thank you, Florence. Absolutely fine.
-So, how, how we all getting on?
The postmortem has come through
and confirms that Jerome died between 6am and 7am
from a single bullet to the heart.
The lab has also confirmed a definite match
between the fatal bullet
and the pack of bullets we found in the safe.
OK - any joy with the prints on the pack?
We got some partials but no more, sir.
Also, the report on Torey Martin's crash came through first thing.
Yes, what did it say?
"In summary, there is no evidence of any mechanical malfunction
"that might have led to this crash.
"Verdict - reckless driving."
So, Torey was right. There was nothing wrong with the car.
-It appears not.
-OK. What else have we got?
Well, Chief, me and JP
have been going through all the financial checks.
In the last three months Jerome has taken out
5,000 Eastern Caribbean dollars in cash every week.
-The withdrawals stopped eight days ago
when the account went into overdraft.
-That's over 60,000 EC dollars!
On top of which, I checked whether Mr Martin had taken out
a life insurance policy.
According to the policy, with her husband dead,
Mrs Martin looks set to receive 120,000 Eastern Caribbean dollars.
I don't know about you, but that sounds like motive to me.
The cricket club owed two years rent.
The council were threatening to take the ground back.
-Jerry was paying off the debt.
-Is that what he told you?
Mrs Martin, these withdrawals were made in cash.
I find it very hard to believe Honore town council
were accepting rent arrears of that size paid in cash.
Well, then, it seems I don't know
what my husband was doing with our money.
But whatever it was, you can't have been happy about it -
not when you're trying to save to pay for Torey's medical treatment.
Of course I wasn't happy about it. I was furious.
I put every penny I'd earned into that account.
So what did you do when you found out your husband had spent it?
I lost it with him.
I threw plates.
Made him sleep in the car.
We've been putting on a brave face for Torey
but we hadn't even been talking the last few days.
But it doesn't bring the money back though does it?
Doesn't pay for Torey's treatment.
I'm sorry. I don't understand.
Jerome had life insurance...
and as a result of his death yesterday,
you are now set to receive substantial pay-out.
To the tune of 120,000.
That hadn't even crossed my mind.
I admit I would do anything for my son, Inspector,
but I also loved my husband a great deal.
Despite everything he'd done.
If you're saying that I killed Jerry because I wanted the money,
then you've got it very, very wrong.
Well, we'll leave it there. Thank you for your time, Mrs Martin.
We'll see ourselves out.
Mr Coleman. You're here again.
You were asking Sabrina about her and Jerry's savings.
Jerry used to drop by the garage on his lunch break.
His school was round the corner.
After Torey's crash he came round less.
He was a lot more withdrawn in general.
But, I noticed with Archer,
there was this...different vibe.
Something almost hostile.
A week ago, Jerry stopped by.
While he was there, I saw him hand Archer an envelope of cash.
They didn't know I'd seen it happen...
Jerry didn't seem happy about handing over the money.
Did you ask them what it was about?
No. I was going to talk to Jerry after the match. But...
Can you think of any reason why Jerome was giving Archer money?
I've tried. Believe me.
Was Archer in any money trouble?
I know he likes a gamble.
Did he tell you how he was doing?
You only ever hear about the winnings don't you?
-It's JP. I'd better take this.
You'd known Mr Martin a long time, hadn't you?
We were like brothers.
I would've done anything for him.
Thank you, Mr Coleman.
We should head back to the station, sir.
-JP and Dwayne have got something for us.
So, Chief, we checked Jerome's e-mails like you asked us,
and we found this one from two days ago.
Yes, sir, Jerome hadn't actually sent it.
It was in his draft inbox folder.
"It's over. I have nothing more to give you.
"My mistake has already cost me everything I have."
Addressed to Archer Browne. What mistake, I wonder?
And why would Jerome give money to Archer instead of helping his son?
That would make sense. Archer was blackmailing Jerome over a mistake.
-So what was it?
-I have an idea.
Torey told us that Jerome kept apologising for the crash
being his fault. What if that was Jerome's "mistake"?
What if there really was something wrong with the car
that Jerome gave Torey?
That crash report - who signed off on the expert assessment?
I don't know. I didn't check.
Browne's Repairs. That was Archer's garage that checked the car.
He signed off on it himself.
Mr Browne, can we have a word?
Tell us, why was Jerome giving you money?
All right. I've got debts. From gambling.
Jerome offered to bail me out. He was a good friend.
Here, we found this e-mail in Jerome's draft inbox.
It's addressed to you. Would you be so good to read it?
-What's all that about then?
-I really don't know.
Your garage carries out assessments of vehicles
involved in crashes on Saint Marie.
You looked at Torey Martin's car after the accident.
-Yes, yes, we did. It was sound.
We think that perhaps when you examined Torey's car,
you found mechanical fault of some sort.
An MOT would have flagged up the problem.
As we know, Jerome never got round to that.
So we can only imagine Jerome's guilt when you revealed to him
that it was his own negligence that caused Torey's tragedy -
and being the loving family man that he was,
he would've been desperate to keep this a secret
from Torey and Sabrina.
But something changed, didn't it?
He told you he wasn't going to pay any more.
Maybe he was going to come clean. What? Maybe even go to the police.
Which is why you think I'd kill him?
It is an interesting theory, Inspector...
but there is one thing wrong with it.
I wasn't the only one to check that car over.
Gus Coleman assessed it with me the very same night
it came into the garage -
and the insurance company sent someone over.
So speak to them if you think I'm lying when I tell you...
there was nothing wrong with that vehicle.
do you like the colour of Mr Browne's overalls?
Well, don't you think they're a lovely shade of, er, blue?
Yes, sir, a particularly lovely shade of blue.
How did you do this then?
I don't know, man. It probably caught on an engine or something.
Did it, now? Yeah.
Thanks for your time.
Archer Browne is Jerome's killer, I'm sure of it.
The fact that his torn overall matches the material
that we found in the jeep
means that he was the one who was messing with our engine.
But the engine was working fine.
-So what was he doing there?
I think I might have that one worked out.
Try this on for size, if you will -
we never found the gun at the cricket ground, did we?
But as we know all four suspects remained there
in between Jerome being killed and us arriving -
so, where did the gun vanish?
Where's the one place that never gets checked at a crime scene?
A police car.
Archer hid the gun in our engine?
Exactly - and then ripped his overalls
-when he came to collect it later that day.
-That takes a big pair of...
-Thank you, Dwayne.
Sir, the insurance company confirm they looked at Torey's car.
-It's as Archer said. Nothing wrong with it whatsoever.
All the evidence points to Archer blackmailing Jerome Martin.
-We just don't know what he was blackmailing him over.
-No, we don't.
That gun could be anywhere by now.
Dwayne, JP, I want you to tail Archer Browne.
-We're on it Chief.
-He's hidden it somewhere.
Maybe he'll show us.
Listen, if you want I can cover this bit on my own, you know,
and you can go off to Martha's leaving drinks
-cos I know you wanted to be there.
-No, no, that's good of you, Dwayne,
-but I'm happy to be here with you.
Put on the bet. I man good for it, you know that.
You know that!
HE CONTINUES SPEAKING ON PHONE
So as I was saying, you know, we are partners,
we do things for each other, help each other out.
You know, sometimes we might even share things with each other,
like facts about ourselves, that kind of thing.
Whatever you say, JP. Whatever you say.
..which means Dwayne and JP are stuck on this stakeout,
unfortunately, so it'll be just the four of us.
Yeah, I bumped into Selwyn this morning and said he should join us.
I brought this. Saint Marie's finest, 25 years old.
Great, thank you.
Er, there's drinks on the veranda. Please help yourself, sir.
That was a bit unfortunate, bumping into him.
Put you on the spot, did he?
I couldn't leave Saint Marie without saying goodbye to Selwyn,
he's one of my best friends here.
I'm feeling a bit peckish.
OK, JP, what's the problem?
I don't know what you mean.
An hour ago, I couldn't shut you up
going on about how we was partners and stuff,
and now you won't even grace me with a "No, thank you"
when I offer you a sandwich.
So, come on. What's up?
Catherine told me about your dad.
Yes! What happened when you were six.
This really big thing about your past and I had no idea about it.
I'm your partner, your friend.
I should know that about you, Dwayne.
And that's why you're sulking?!
-I'm not sulking.
No, I'm not.
You know what, JP?
I should've told you about it.
Sorry I didn't.
I guess I just liked you being the one friend I have
who didn't know anything about it. You know?
A special friend.
You know what?
I'll forget everything I know about your dad.
Yes, I'll... I'll just un-know it.
We can go back to the way things were.
Our special friendship.
MUSIC: Your Love Is Amazing by Delroy Wilson
Apparently they really hit it off at JP's wedding.
They sometimes meet for coffee in Honore. Who knew?
Well, they're not drinking coffee tonight -
they're halfway through the bottle already.
-I think perhaps I should go and rescue her.
# Your love is amazing... #
So, how are things?
Well, I think I've got my answer.
Seems like Martha's heart is very much in London,
rather than Saint Marie.
I'm sorry, sir.
at least now I know.
Selwyn's just been telling me about his dancing.
-Yeah, apparently he's really rather good.
-And it made me realise that we've never danced together.
Well, yes, I suppose we haven't.
So I think, we should have our first dance,
on our last night.
Er, yeah, the thing is... I mean...
I'm not really a dancing...
# Now I'm gonna love you my whole life through
# Cos no-one ever loves... #
I think maybe we should leave them alone.
Let's just slip out this way.
# Your love is amazing
# Darling, ooh... #
Have you been drinking my rum?
Why are you smiling?
You make me smile.
How do you feel about me?
-You never tell me.
Well, I never tell you about how I feel.
..if I'm honest, there are things that I want to tell you...
..but I don't know whether you...
..want to hear them.
..there are some things I-I want to say.
I-I wasn't sure how you'd react.
And-And I don't know how you feel.
..no, I don't think, I know.
I'm in love with you and I don't want you to go.
Dwayne! Wake up! He's on the move!
What's he got in that toolbox?
I'm watching where it landed!
Quickly. Let's go.
OK, JP, in you go.
-Yes, you! I'm watching the spot.
-Get in there, JP!
My eyes are burning me! Get in!
Oh, oh, oh, oh!
Left a bit.
There, there, there.
Right there, where you are, JP!
Oh, come on, JP!
I don't think I feel very well.
-Did we dance last night?
-Yes, we did.
Don't you remember?
-I remember Selwyn opening some rum.
It's all a bit hazy after that.
What about our conversation?
Why what were we saying?
Well. The, erm...
the gist of it seemed to be that you thought that I didn't...
-You've got to come, we've had a breakthrough.
Yes, Chief. Now.
Your flight's at two, right?
I'll be back in time to take you to the airport. We need to talk.
-I'll be back by one, I promise.
See you later.
-What is it?
Everything points to Archer being our killer -
the gun, the money he was taking from Jerome, the e-mail -
but how did he manage to kill Jerome out on the cricket pitch
when there are three witnesses who can alibi him
as being inside the clubhouse when it happened?
OK, Chief, Archer's in the cell.
-Let me know when you want to talk to him.
-Thank you, Dwayne.
It might be a little while yet.
I'm afraid everything's a little jumbled in my head at the moment.
-A bit like this, really.
-Oh, just do the old short cut!
Take it apart, then put it back together again
with all the colours in the right place.
No-one will ever know the difference.
Is that a short cut or is that cheating?
You say potahto, I say potato.
-Dwayne, what did you say?
-You say potato, I say potahto.
-No, no, before that - the short cut thing.
That you take it apart and put it back together the way you want it.
Dwayne, you're absolutely right, of course that's what you do -
and no-one would ever know.
I saw him hand Archer an envelope of cash.
Jerry didn't seem happy about handing over the money.
I would have done anything for him.
Oh, very clever, Gus.
Very clever indeed. But why?
What is it you know that we don't?
Of course, that's what you know...
Dwayne, JP, I need you to get to Gus Coleman's house.
Yes, Chief. What are we looking for?
A blue hooded jacket.
Florence, kindly ask the Commissioner
to meet us at the cricket ground.
-It's time for us to do our thing.
Thank you all for coming.
You know, at the heart of Jerome's death lay a number of questions.
Let me clear the first one up for you.
Why did Jerome end up out on the cricket pitch
when he was supposedly going to get some more beers from the office?
Because Jerome never had any intention of getting any beers.
The wicket was always his primary destination.
Now, the second problem is how did the killer manage to leave
the clubhouse bar unnoticed, when you were all there together
at the time Jerome was shot?
Well, as it turns out...
you did see his killer leave the bar.
And I think you know exactly who it was...
..don't you, Gus?
-Because you've been leading us round the houses
since the moment you discovered Jerome's body out here on the pitch.
I don't know what you're talking about.
I must say you've done a very good job of it.
I mean, only an hour ago we arrested Archer for murder.
That's how sure we were that it was him.
But it wasn't him, was it?
Archer didn't fire the gun that killed Jerome.
Please tell me it wasn't you, Gus?
Gus didn't kill Jerome either.
I'm sorry to have to tell you, Mrs Martin, Torey.
Jerome took his own life.
He fired the gun.
At 6am, having told you he was getting some beers...
We're running low on beers, I'll go get some.
..Jerome went into the office.
He opened the safe, took out the gun and one bullet,
then walked out into the middle of the cricket square.
Loaded the gun,
shot himself in the heart.
Why? Why would Jerry kill himself?
Because Mr Browne here was blackmailing him.
That's where all your savings had gone the last few months.
Jerome believed he was responsible for your accident,
that the car had a mechanical fault,
and because he forgot to get the MOT done,
he was to blame for you ending up in a wheelchair.
But the crash report proved that wasn't the case.
There was nothing wrong with the car.
Except Jerome believed the car wreck had been doctored
and the crash report consequently falsified.
Didn't he, Mr Browne?
See, with gambling debts mounting,
and realising that Jerome hadn't put the vehicle in for its yearly MOT,
you saw an opportunity to make some quick money.
The night the car wreck arrived at Archer's garage for assessment,
you and Gus checked it and there was nothing wrong with it.
"There is no evidence of any mechanical malfunction
"that might have led to this crash."
I think you then realised that, if you were canny
and could speak to Jerome before Gus did,
you could convince Mr Martin that there was a fault with the car
and that he was responsible for Torey's accident.
And knowing how much Jerome cared for Torey,
Archer knew he would do anything to keep you finding out.
So we assume Archer went to see Jerome that same night.
He lied to him and said the brakes were faulty.
He also said that no-one else had looked at them.
Archer told Jerome he could fix the faulty brakes
and make the problem go away.
So that by the time anyone else saw the car,
they would be none the wiser -
all on the condition Jerome agreed to pay 5,000 a week
to buy his silence.
So Jerome paid up week in, week out,
till there's nothing left to pay.
Which is when, with the prospect of Archer finally revealing the truth,
and already racked with the guilt
of what he thought he'd done to his own son...
..Jerome decided to take his own life.
An act based on a lie.
A lie that you, Mr Browne, perpetrated.
But if this WAS suicide...
why did it look so much like murder?
Er, well, sir, because someone decided to confuse us
and stage Jerome's death to look like murder,
didn't they, Gus?
Because the truth is, when you found Jerome,
there were two items you removed from the crime scene.
The first was the gun.
There was something else you found, as well, wasn't there?
There was a suicide note.
See, when I realised what had gone on,
that this wasn't murder but suicide,
the one missing piece of the jigsaw was how you knew
exactly why Jerome had killed himself.
Jerome was a man of conscience.
It's unlikely that he'd carry out an act like this
without some sort of explanation. So where was the suicide note?
And then I remembered
when you were searched before leaving the cricket ground,
you had a folded piece of paper on you.
You knew we'd be looking for the gun and would pay no attention to it,
but I think that document was the other piece of evidence
pointing to the truth of what Jerome did.
This is the jacket you were wearing that morning, Gus.
"My beloved Torey, you are my most precious thing in this world.
"That's why my heart is breaking each time I look at you.
"Your accident was my fault.
"The brakes failed because I-I didn't get them checked.
"Archer knows the truth.
"I can't bear going on knowing what I've done to you,
"and knowing you will find out,
"I can't face life with you blaming me.
"Goodbye, son. All my love, Dad."
So when you found that note and read it,
I think you realised exactly what had gone on.
We know that you'd seen Jerome passing Archer cash,
so it would have been easy for you to join the dots...
and because you'd also taken a look at the wreck of Torey's car,
you knew the brakes were working fine.
That Archer had sold Jerome a lie,
and that's why he was lying in front of you, dead.
As you stood over the body of your oldest friend, angry, enraged...
you resolved to avenge his senseless death.
And I think you decided in that brief moment
that you would do all you can to make it look like
Archer had murdered Jerome.
He as good as did.
So you removed the two pieces of evidence pointing to suicide
from the crime scene.
You then moved the shell casing to convince us
the shot had been fired from a few metres away.
You then seized your moment as we were out by Jerome's body
to stash the gun in the police jeep,
knowing it would be the last place where we would look for the gun.
That's why we found you loitering by the clubhouse that morning.
You later planned your moment to retrieve the gun,
and as you did you planted some material from Archer's overalls,
leaving the bonnet ajar to make sure we'd find it.
And having done all that,
the final nail in Archer's coffin - you planted the gun in Archer's flat
I mean, as it was, Archer came across it first and panicked,
tried to get rid of it,
but because you'd primed us to think he was our man,
we were already there waiting to catch him in the act.
I'm watching where it landed.
At which point we arrested Archer for murder.
Your plan had worked.
we still didn't know how he could've done it.
The only flaw in your plan was that Archer, just like the rest of you,
had a rock-solid alibi for the time of the murder,
simply because there was no murder.
You were all in the clubhouse when Jerome took his own life.
So what happens now?
Is he going to get away with this?
I'm sorry, Mrs Martin, but we can't arrest Mr Browne for murder.
Even though his actions were directly responsible
for Jerome sadly taking his own life.
But he will be charged with blackmail,
perverting the course of justice.
I imagine when it's put before a judge,
the sentence handed down won't be far off that given for murder.
Thank you, Inspector.
-You did us proud.
-Thank you, sir.
Please excuse me, sir.
Some place I have to be, I'm afraid.
-Go get her, sir.
"Being with you is the best thing that ever happened to me.
"And leaving you..."
-"..is the hardest thing I've ever had to do.
"I'm sorry I couldn't face an actual goodbye.
"I'm going to miss you so much.
I've lost her, Dwayne.
We can still catch her at the airport.
Chief! Come on!
That's it, that's her plane!
Faster! We've got to get closer!
There she is!
Martha! Martha it's me, look this way, please!
I love you!
Martha, please don't go!
-You miss her, don't you?
-Quite a lot, actually.
My partner Tom,
the boat's gone and he's not answering his phone.
Sir, he's dead.
You can't seriously think that one of us killed Tom?
He got the first flight back to London at 6am.
We can send a small team to the UK to work on the case.
You are to liaise with Detective Inspector Jack Mooney.
