SHE BOOMS GONG

0:00:170:00:18

Right, let's really open up about our feelings in this session.

0:00:230:00:29

Isn't our time up? I thought I heard the gong.

0:00:290:00:31

We'll happily sit here until you feel ready to open your heart to us.

0:00:310:00:34

-Won't we, Bryn?

-Yeah, before I came here, life was a struggle.

0:00:360:00:40

But now I know you're never going to find self-acceptance

0:00:400:00:45

unless you face your feelings.

0:00:450:00:47

Makes me feel like everything's broken.

0:00:470:00:51

And no matter how hard I try,

0:00:510:00:54

I'll never be able to fix it.

0:00:540:00:56

Thank you for your courage, Gabe.

0:00:560:00:58

Come on, let's go eat.

0:00:580:01:00

I hope it tastes better than it looks.

0:01:080:01:11

I'm sure it's delicious, Eva.

0:01:110:01:13

Well, back home, it's usually takeaways

0:01:130:01:16

followed by too many glasses of Pinot Grigio.

0:01:160:01:21

I don't suppose there's any alcohol in that green tea, is there?

0:01:210:01:25

What could be more important than the food we put into our bodies?

0:01:250:01:30

If your life is so hectic, there isn't time to cook a healthy meal,

0:01:300:01:34

then you must change your life.

0:01:340:01:36

So, this afternoon, I want to focus on the healing power of the breath.

0:01:530:01:57

Enjoy your swim, my love.

0:01:590:02:01

Enjoy your meditation!

0:02:010:02:03

So, let's begin in the usual way,

0:02:030:02:07

by closing our eyes

0:02:070:02:09

and taking a few deep breaths.

0:02:090:02:13

And you can slowly...

0:02:290:02:31

..open your eyes.

0:02:330:02:35

Gabe, would you'd care to join me

0:02:410:02:43

in making a small offering in the Contemplation Garden?

0:02:430:02:46

So if we can achieve one thing for you during your time here, Gabe -

0:02:490:02:53

-what would it be?

-Peace of mind, I suppose.

0:02:530:02:56

Same as everyone.

0:02:560:02:57

I don't know that it is the same for everyone.

0:02:570:03:00

People come here for all sorts of different...

0:03:000:03:02

-Daniel?

-Wait here.

0:03:020:03:04

He's dead.

0:03:120:03:13

Tonight, we celebrate a man

0:03:460:03:48

who quite literally needs no introduction.

0:03:480:03:51

However, I've got the job of giving him one.

0:03:510:03:55

What can you say about Commissioner Selwyn Patterson?

0:03:550:03:58

That's not a rhetorical question, Harry.

0:03:580:04:02

I need some help here.

0:04:020:04:04

Selwyn Patterson is...inscrutable.

0:04:040:04:08

A hard taskmaster.

0:04:080:04:10

-Doesn't suffer fools.

-HE GROANS

0:04:100:04:11

I'm supposed to be bigging the man up here.

0:04:110:04:14

-Sir?

-Oh, perfect timing, Florence. Just the person I need.

0:04:150:04:18

This speech I've got to make for the commissioner's award.

0:04:180:04:21

-What about it?

-Well, it's driving me mad.

0:04:210:04:23

In two days' time, I've got to stand up

0:04:230:04:25

in front of the great and good of Saint Marie

0:04:250:04:27

and say what a special man the Commissioner is.

0:04:270:04:29

I don't have a notion where to start.

0:04:290:04:31

I mean how, how am I supposed to make a speech

0:04:310:04:33

-about someone I hardly know?

-I don't know, sir. I'm sorry.

0:04:330:04:36

I'm just going to have to clear the decks

0:04:360:04:38

and spend every minute of the next two days working on it.

0:04:380:04:41

-Sir, someone's been found dead...

-Oh...

0:04:410:04:43

..at a place called the Calming Breath Spiritual Retreat.

0:04:430:04:46

It's up on the north shore.

0:04:460:04:48

To the north shore we must go, then.

0:04:480:04:50

I heard it's been here for three years.

0:04:540:04:57

So, what exactly happens at a "spiritual retreat"?

0:04:570:05:00

According to their website, it's a chance

0:05:000:05:03

to reenergise your mind, body and spirit holistically.

0:05:030:05:06

Sounds exhausting, so how much will that set you back?

0:05:060:05:09

2,000 a week.

0:05:090:05:11

2,000?

0:05:110:05:12

What, to have some hippy fella walking all over your back

0:05:120:05:15

and sticking pins in your face? Really?!

0:05:150:05:17

To be fair, getting rid of the gadgets,

0:05:190:05:21

I can definitely see the appeal of that.

0:05:210:05:23

Our victim is a Daniel Friend.

0:05:260:05:28

35 years old, British.

0:05:280:05:31

He owns this place with his wife Cressida.

0:05:310:05:34

-Yeah, and she's the one who found the body...

-Poor woman.

0:05:340:05:37

Was she on her own when she came across him?

0:05:370:05:40

Ah, no, she was with one of the other guests.

0:05:400:05:43

They were on their way to something called the Contemplation Garden.

0:05:430:05:46

-A Contemplation Garden?

-I know. I did ask, Chief.

0:05:460:05:50

But, if I'm honest, I didn't really understand the answer.

0:05:500:05:53

Ligature marks on the neck.

0:05:570:05:59

In a band about an inch and a half wide.

0:05:590:06:02

Cause of death, strangulation.

0:06:020:06:04

No defence wounds or any other signs of injury.

0:06:050:06:09

You would expect a fella this size to put up some sort of a fight.

0:06:090:06:12

Maybe the attacker surprised him from behind?

0:06:120:06:15

Possibly.

0:06:150:06:16

His belt. It's the exact same width as the marks on his neck.

0:06:190:06:23

But I assume he wasn't killed with his own belt,

0:06:230:06:25

what with him wearing it and all.

0:06:250:06:27

HE SIGHS

0:06:270:06:29

Dwayne, if you're done here,

0:06:290:06:31

-we can release the body.

-Yes, Chief!

0:06:310:06:33

-Did you find anything on his person?

-Er, nothing, sir. But...

0:06:330:06:37

..I found this towel on the ground

0:06:380:06:41

a few feet from where the victim was lying.

0:06:410:06:43

I assume he dropped it when he was being attacked.

0:06:430:06:45

So, what? He was on his way for a swim?

0:06:450:06:47

Maybe there's a pool somewhere in the Contemplation Garden?

0:06:470:06:50

Chief! A key. I found it under the body.

0:06:520:06:55

For a locker or a padlock or something.

0:06:560:06:59

We should dust it for prints.

0:06:590:07:02

If it was underneath the victim, then it either belongs to him...

0:07:020:07:06

Or to the killer.

0:07:060:07:08

Huh. You would think.

0:07:080:07:10

Dwayne. JP. Why don't you finish processing the scene.

0:07:100:07:13

-We should have a quick word with the witnesses.

-Chief.

0:07:130:07:16

So, when was the last time you all saw Mr Friend alive?

0:07:170:07:20

It was about half past two. We'd just finished lunch.

0:07:200:07:24

Daniel headed off for his swim as usual.

0:07:240:07:27

"As usual"? It was a regular thing?

0:07:270:07:30

Every day. Same time.

0:07:300:07:32

Daniel said a dip in the sea was the best form of therapy he knew.

0:07:320:07:35

You have to go through the Contemplation Garden

0:07:350:07:38

-to get to the beach?

-No, no.

0:07:380:07:39

You literally have to go in another direction.

0:07:390:07:42

So, why was he heading for the garden then?

0:07:420:07:44

I don't know. It's not like him. Daniel relished routine.

0:07:440:07:47

And when Daniel left, what were the rest of you doing?

0:07:470:07:50

We were all together.

0:07:500:07:52

Cressida was running a meditation circle.

0:07:530:07:56

A meditation circle? Does that mean you all had your eyes closed?

0:07:580:08:02

ALL: Yes.

0:08:020:08:03

How long did that last?

0:08:030:08:05

About 30 minutes.

0:08:050:08:07

-And, afterwards, when you were done?

-WINDCHIME TINKLES

0:08:070:08:09

Gabe and I headed for a walk.

0:08:120:08:14

That's when we found him.

0:08:150:08:17

Daniel!

0:08:170:08:18

Wait here.

0:08:180:08:19

He was just lying there.

0:08:220:08:23

I checked for vital signs.

0:08:230:08:25

First we heard about it is when they came back and told us.

0:08:250:08:28

And then Gabe went to get his phone,

0:08:300:08:31

and then that's when we called your lot.

0:08:310:08:33

HE TAKES A DEEP BREATH

0:08:330:08:35

Now, can any of you think of a reason

0:08:350:08:38

why someone might want to murder Mr Friend?

0:08:380:08:41

Well, I mean I only met the man yesterday. So, I hardly knew him.

0:08:410:08:45

Same. I got here a few days ago,

0:08:450:08:47

but he didn't seem like the kind of person to have enemies.

0:08:470:08:50

And what about outside the retreat?

0:08:500:08:51

Was there anyone on the island who he'd fallen out with?

0:08:510:08:54

He didn't really know anyone on the island.

0:08:540:08:56

I see.

0:08:560:08:57

So, that means the only people on Saint Marie

0:08:590:09:03

that Daniel actually knew -

0:09:030:09:05

were you four.

0:09:050:09:06

Yes, but, I mean, you don't think it was one of us

0:09:100:09:12

because we were all out there on the lawn when it happened.

0:09:120:09:16

Forgive me, it's just, well...

0:09:160:09:18

The thing is, we think whoever strangled Daniel

0:09:200:09:22

might have used one of those belts you're all wearing to do it.

0:09:220:09:26

And what with this being such an isolated spot

0:09:260:09:29

and as you said, Cressida, Daniel keeping himself to himself.

0:09:290:09:32

Well, when you put all that together - I can't help thinking

0:09:320:09:36

that our killer is someone within the retreat.

0:09:360:09:39

This one! It's missing a belt.

0:09:490:09:51

It was there this morning.

0:09:520:09:54

Are you sure?

0:09:540:09:55

I was doing the laundry. They were all here. I'm sure of it.

0:09:550:09:57

So you and your guests are the only ones who have access to this room?

0:09:570:10:01

Florence, tell Dwayne and JP to search the retreat.

0:10:010:10:04

High up and low down.

0:10:040:10:05

Let's see if we can find our missing belt.

0:10:050:10:08

2.20 this afternoon,

0:10:250:10:27

Daniel Friend tucked his towel under his arm

0:10:270:10:30

and set off for his daily swim.

0:10:300:10:32

But, instead, of going to the beach as he normally would...

0:10:320:10:35

..and for reasons we don't yet know...

0:10:350:10:36

..he decided to head to the retreat's Contemplation Garden.

0:10:360:10:40

Here.

0:10:400:10:41

However, his journey was cut short when he was accosted -

0:10:410:10:45

we think by one of the other residents - and strangled to death.

0:10:450:10:48

Just...here.

0:10:480:10:50

So, what do we have on our victim?

0:10:510:10:52

I haven't been able to dig up that much so far.

0:10:520:10:55

The retreat only has a basic website

0:10:550:10:58

and he seems to have no presence on social media.

0:10:580:11:01

Seems technology was an anathema to Mr Friend.

0:11:010:11:03

Now the only four people, as far as we're aware,

0:11:030:11:07

who knew Daniel are the three paying guests and, of course, his wife.

0:11:070:11:10

Cressida Friend.

0:11:100:11:11

A qualified yoga teacher.

0:11:110:11:14

Their business accounts show they opened the retreat

0:11:140:11:17

-using money from her trust fund.

-Trust fund?

0:11:170:11:20

Apparently, her family are big landowners in Dorset.

0:11:200:11:22

Oh, well, in that case we should do a full financial check.

0:11:220:11:25

As an old mucker of mine at the Met used to say,

0:11:250:11:28

-"Where there's money, there's motive."

-What's a mucker?

0:11:280:11:30

Oh, it's just a friend, Florence. Like you and me.

0:11:300:11:33

We're a couple of muckers.

0:11:330:11:34

Hmm. Muckers? OK!

0:11:340:11:35

Gabriel Lee. 26. Junior doctor,

0:11:380:11:41

currently taking a year-long sabbatical from Bristol General.

0:11:410:11:45

-Do we know why?

-Not yet.

0:11:450:11:47

But I've got details for his consultant. I'll get in touch.

0:11:470:11:51

Right. So, who's next?

0:11:510:11:52

Erm, Eva Ingram.

0:11:520:11:55

Single. A successful entrepreneur

0:11:550:11:58

who runs her own business importing wine.

0:11:580:12:01

She owns a number of shops around the UK.

0:12:010:12:04

And she arrived on the island only yesterday?

0:12:040:12:06

Claims she'd never met Daniel before.

0:12:060:12:08

We need to confirm that for ourselves.

0:12:080:12:11

And, finally, Bryn Williams. 51.

0:12:110:12:14

Lives in London, but originally from, um...

0:12:140:12:18

"Pwel" - "Pwill" - "Pywell", I'm sorry, how do you say that?

0:12:180:12:21

I've no idea. I'm Irish.

0:12:210:12:23

-Let's just say "Wales".

-SHE CHUCKLES

0:12:230:12:25

So, what do we have on Bryn?

0:12:250:12:27

Hmm, so far, not much.

0:12:270:12:29

His Facebook page states his profession as a Maths teacher.

0:12:290:12:32

But I'm struggling to find evidence of that.

0:12:320:12:35

There are two significant questions

0:12:360:12:38

that lie at the heart of this case, Florence.

0:12:380:12:41

The first - if our victim went to the beach for a swim

0:12:410:12:43

at the same time every day...

0:12:430:12:45

Daniel headed off for his swim as usual.

0:12:450:12:47

..then who or what made him change his mind today?

0:12:470:12:50

And the second - if our killer is one of these four people

0:12:500:12:53

who were sitting in this meditation circle...

0:12:530:12:58

..then how did one of them slip out unnoticed and commit murder?

0:13:020:13:07

JP, you find anything yet?

0:13:150:13:19

JP?

0:13:200:13:21

JP?

0:13:250:13:26

Ohhhh!

0:13:310:13:34

Why don't you make yourself at home, JP?

0:13:340:13:36

Put your feet up.

0:13:360:13:38

And why don't I make you a nice cold planters while I'm at it?!

0:13:380:13:42

I'm sorry, Dwayne. It's just I started flicking through this book

0:13:420:13:45

-and I just couldn't put it down.

-Oh!

-It's really fascinating!

0:13:450:13:48

HE GRUNTS

0:13:480:13:49

Believe by Daniel Friend.

0:13:510:13:52

Hey.

0:13:520:13:54

The victim wrote it?

0:13:540:13:55

Yes, he's got a whole box of them. I think it's for the guests to buy.

0:13:550:13:58

"Using the power of positive thinking

0:13:590:14:02

"to access your life's goals"?

0:14:020:14:06

Oh, come on!

0:14:060:14:07

Er, Dwayne, basically,

0:14:070:14:09

it says that if there's something you want in life,

0:14:090:14:12

and you project it in your mind.

0:14:120:14:14

You can actually make it happen!

0:14:140:14:17

-Oh, really?

-Mmm.

0:14:170:14:18

Well, let's put it to the test.

0:14:180:14:20

I'm projecting, in my mind,

0:14:220:14:25

that JP will get up off of his backside and start doing some work.

0:14:250:14:29

HE SIGHS

0:14:290:14:32

Amazing.

0:14:330:14:34

It worked.

0:14:340:14:35

-Very funny, Dwayne.

-Never mind all that!

0:14:350:14:38

How did you get on here? Any sign of the belt?

0:14:380:14:41

Well, I found a whole load of Daniel's papers and journals,

0:14:410:14:45

and I boxed them up, but no belt. You?

0:14:450:14:47

Diddly squat.

0:14:470:14:49

We'd better get back to the station and update the chief, you know? Uh!

0:14:490:14:52

Positive thinking...!

0:14:530:14:54

I'm sorry, Chief.

0:15:030:15:05

We searched inside, outside, upstairs and downstairs.

0:15:050:15:09

It has to be there.

0:15:090:15:11

If our killer is...

0:15:110:15:13

Well, then, how, when and where did they manage to dispose of the belt

0:15:130:15:18

when none of them left the retreat after the murder?

0:15:180:15:20

It doesn't make any sense.

0:15:200:15:22

OK, let's call it a day.

0:15:220:15:24

-Crack on anew in the morning.

-Chief.

0:15:240:15:26

Have you got something there, Florence?

0:15:260:15:29

Sir, it's from the items JP found in Daniel's room.

0:15:290:15:32

It's a notebook.

0:15:320:15:33

Shorthand.

0:15:330:15:35

-We should see if we can get it deciphered.

-Will do.

0:15:350:15:38

Ah, sarge? We're going for a quick drink to Catherine's bar.

0:15:390:15:42

-Fancy joining us?

-No, I might stay and make a couple of calls.

0:15:420:15:45

-Chief?

-Oh, I'd love to, Dwayne.

0:15:450:15:47

But this speech is not going to write itself.

0:15:470:15:49

The commissioner's award is in two days.

0:15:490:15:51

OK, well, a small rum might be just what you need

0:15:510:15:53

to get your creative juices flowing, ah? Hm?

0:15:530:15:57

Maybe you're right, Dwayne. Maybe that's exactly what I need, yeah!

0:15:570:16:01

Just a small one, then.

0:16:010:16:02

Absolutely, Chief. Just a small one.

0:16:020:16:05

Or two! Or three...

0:16:050:16:06

GROANING

0:16:200:16:22

Morning, sir!

0:16:220:16:24

You look terrible. Have you slept?

0:16:240:16:26

Yeah! I think I might've nodded off for about five minutes around four.

0:16:260:16:30

Four? You haven't been working on your speech all night?

0:16:300:16:33

It got to the point where words ceased to have any meaning.

0:16:330:16:36

They were just dancing in front of my eyes.

0:16:360:16:38

But then, just before you arrived, a breakthrough!

0:16:380:16:40

-Really?

-I decided to seek professional help.

0:16:400:16:42

This guy! He's written biographies about everyone

0:16:420:16:45

from Churchill to George Best.

0:16:450:16:46

He says the key to writing about someone

0:16:460:16:49

is to know your subject inside out.

0:16:490:16:51

Get to know them intimately.

0:16:510:16:52

And how are you going to do that?

0:16:520:16:54

I'm going to invite the commissioner to spend some quality time with me.

0:16:540:16:57

Anyway, we've got more pressing issues.

0:16:570:16:59

-How did you get on last night?

-I paid my cousin a visit.

0:16:590:17:02

He's a clerk at Honore Town Court.

0:17:020:17:04

And did he manage to translate Daniel's scribblings?

0:17:040:17:06

Well, first off, I don't think this was written by Daniel Friend.

0:17:060:17:10

It's mainly about him and it's written in the third person.

0:17:100:17:13

So, someone was keeping a journal ABOUT Daniel?

0:17:130:17:15

It's all about their stay as a guest at the retreat

0:17:150:17:18

and it's very critical of him.

0:17:180:17:20

Is there any way of working out who the author might be?

0:17:200:17:22

All the guests are mentioned in it, except for one.

0:17:220:17:26

Bryn Williams.

0:17:280:17:29

Bryn Williams.

0:17:310:17:33

Yesterday, you said that Bryn's social media

0:17:380:17:41

-maintained he was a maths teacher...

-DEODORANT SPRAYS

0:17:410:17:44

..but you didn't find any evidence of that?

0:17:440:17:46

No, nothing.

0:17:460:17:48

I wonder...

0:17:480:17:49

Very few jobs left that call for shorthand.

0:17:510:17:53

But the one trade that still uses it...

0:17:550:17:57

is journalism.

0:17:570:17:59

Nothing.

0:18:030:18:05

"William Bryn" maybe?

0:18:050:18:06

His pseudonym!

0:18:110:18:12

Will you drive? I'm going to make a call

0:18:140:18:17

to an old press officer friend of mine back in London.

0:18:170:18:19

See if I can't find a number for Mr Williams' editor.

0:18:190:18:22

-That's got nothing to do with what happened with Daniel.

-No?

0:18:310:18:34

Because, from where I'm standing,

0:18:340:18:36

this gives you a pretty strong motive for murder.

0:18:360:18:39

-Oh, you're joking, right?

-Not in the slightest.

0:18:390:18:42

How about you start by explaining why your notebook

0:18:420:18:44

-was in Daniel's possession.

-Was he on to you?

0:18:440:18:47

I don't know how, but he sussed that I was onto something, yeah.

0:18:500:18:53

Like ourselves, he "sussed" that you weren't

0:18:530:18:55

the common-or-garden maths teacher you claimed to be?

0:18:550:18:58

-He worked out that I was writing an expose.

-And he confronted you?

0:18:580:19:01

You know, for a man who spent his time

0:19:010:19:03

banging on about inner peace, he didn't half get angry.

0:19:030:19:06

-And what did he say?

-He told me to get on the next flight home ASAP.

0:19:060:19:09

-When did this happen?

-Couple of days ago.

0:19:090:19:11

-So, how come you're still here?

-We came to an arrangement.

0:19:110:19:15

I offered to write a complimentary article about the place.

0:19:150:19:18

Right, yes...

0:19:180:19:19

And why didn't you inform your editor about this?

0:19:190:19:23

-I just spoke with him. Half an hour ago.

-Really?

-Yeah.

0:19:230:19:25

He had no idea Daniel was on to you. But he did have some

0:19:250:19:28

very interesting information to pass on about you.

0:19:280:19:30

Like how things aren't going too well

0:19:300:19:32

in your personal life at the moment.

0:19:320:19:34

Halfway through a divorce.

0:19:340:19:36

About to lose custody of your children.

0:19:360:19:38

And your work was suffering as a result.

0:19:380:19:40

According to him - this undercover gig here at the retreat,

0:19:400:19:43

is pretty much last chance saloon.

0:19:430:19:45

So, Daniel Friend blowing your cover and sending you packing -

0:19:450:19:47

I imagine that's the last thing you need.

0:19:470:19:49

I can see how this might look.

0:19:500:19:52

It looks, Bryn - despite your protestations -

0:19:520:19:55

that you benefit from Daniel Friend's death. Big time.

0:19:550:19:58

The man's clearly desperate, Florence.

0:20:010:20:03

But is he desperate enough to commit murder?

0:20:030:20:06

-Morning, Cressida.

-Morning.

0:20:060:20:08

Wow! They're really, really...

0:20:080:20:11

What are they exactly?

0:20:110:20:13

We call them emotional expression sculptures.

0:20:130:20:15

They're from an art therapy class I ran with Bryn and Gabe yesterday.

0:20:150:20:19

"Emotional expression sculptures"?

0:20:190:20:21

I thought I'd put them out in the sun so they can dry quicker.

0:20:230:20:26

Anything to keep busy.

0:20:260:20:27

Inspector?

0:20:290:20:30

The day before yesterday, I happened to see Gabe with Daniel and...

0:20:310:20:35

it looked like Gabe was pretty livid at him.

0:20:350:20:39

Gabe was pointing and jabbing Daniel in the chest.

0:20:390:20:43

-What time was this?

-Er, about 10.30 in the morning.

0:20:430:20:46

-Did you hear any of what was said?

-No, but...

0:20:460:20:48

The thing is, Gabe then walked out of the retreat

0:20:480:20:51

and we didn't see him again until yesterday morning.

0:20:510:20:54

He just disappeared for 24 hours.

0:20:540:20:56

And did you ask Daniel about this?

0:20:560:20:59

He said it was nothing to worry about.

0:20:590:21:01

But you think there was something to it? Some issue between them?

0:21:010:21:04

All I know is he still had a lot of anger in him when he made this.

0:21:040:21:08

I'll chase the consultant at the hospital Gabe works at.

0:21:250:21:28

Yeah, let's see how Dwayne and JP

0:21:280:21:30

are getting on with his phone records and financial checks.

0:21:300:21:33

Anything that might tell us where Gabe went

0:21:330:21:36

during that missing 24 hours.

0:21:360:21:38

Commissioner!

0:21:380:21:40

What an unexpected pleasure!

0:21:400:21:43

I wondered if you might have five minutes for a chat, Inspector?

0:21:430:21:46

For you, sir, I've got the whole day.

0:21:460:21:49

Excuse me, gentlemen.

0:21:490:21:51

As I'm sure you can imagine,

0:22:040:22:06

receiving the island's Special Award tomorrow night

0:22:060:22:10

-is a great honour for me.

-Course.

0:22:100:22:12

-I'm not, by nature, a sentimental man.

-No.

0:22:120:22:15

And yet I must admit I am deeply moved by this acknowledgement.

0:22:150:22:19

I can only imagine.

0:22:190:22:20

So, you can see why I would hate to see the evening marred in any way.

0:22:200:22:26

Well, it goes without saying, sir.

0:22:260:22:28

Mayor Bordey tells me

0:22:280:22:30

you are giving the speech before the award is presented so...

0:22:300:22:33

That's right. Yes. And don't you worry.

0:22:330:22:36

It's coming along a treat.

0:22:360:22:37

I've got some lovely material already.

0:22:370:22:40

Although...

0:22:410:22:42

Why is there an "although"?

0:22:420:22:45

Well, I just have the tiniest concern that parts of it

0:22:450:22:49

are a bit, well, general.

0:22:490:22:51

And I couldn't help feeling that

0:22:510:22:53

if you and I could sit down,

0:22:530:22:55

have a drink, at Catherine's bar, say...?

0:22:550:22:58

It's on. Me and the commissioner.

0:23:030:23:06

7pm. Catherine's bar.

0:23:060:23:08

-Really?

-Yeah!

0:23:080:23:09

Couple of rums, some gentle encouragement

0:23:090:23:12

and he'll be regaling me with anecdotes.

0:23:120:23:13

I'll have him singing like a bird.

0:23:130:23:15

QUIETLY: He asked the commissioner for a drink?!

0:23:150:23:17

PHONE RINGS Excuse me.

0:23:170:23:19

So, what's the story?

0:23:190:23:21

-JP, is that a postmortem I see before me?

-Yes, it is.

0:23:210:23:25

And it confirms Daniel Friend died due to asphyxiation.

0:23:250:23:28

Also, the fibres found around the victim's neck

0:23:280:23:30

are the same kind of fabric used to make the robe belts at the retreat.

0:23:300:23:34

Except we still have no idea how the murderer

0:23:340:23:37

managed to get rid of the belt,

0:23:370:23:38

-when not one of them left the retreat.

-Oh!

0:23:380:23:40

-Also, I dusted the key as requested.

-And?

0:23:400:23:43

There's only one set of prints on them and they're Daniel's.

0:23:430:23:46

If we could only figure out what exactly it unlocks.

0:23:460:23:49

There's a locksmith in town, isn't there?

0:23:490:23:51

Er, yes, Dread Locks.

0:23:510:23:53

Why don't you pop down as soon as you get a chance

0:23:530:23:55

-and see if he can give us a steer.

-OK.

0:23:550:23:57

-Sir?

-Yes, Florence?

-I've had an e-mail back from Bristol General.

0:23:570:24:01

Gabe took his sabbatical after his twin sister, Ruth,

0:24:010:24:04

died six months ago.

0:24:040:24:06

Apparently, he was finding it hard to get over her death.

0:24:060:24:09

-She took her own life.

-Whoo! What a terrible thing.

0:24:090:24:12

And here's a link to a website Gabe set up in her memory.

0:24:120:24:15

Poor girl. And so young.

0:24:160:24:18

Makes sense of what he was doing at the retreat.

0:24:180:24:20

Trying to deal with his grief, I suppose.

0:24:200:24:22

..Yes, see you, then.

0:24:220:24:24

Chief, I've got something for you.

0:24:240:24:27

So, I checked Gabe's phone records like you suggested

0:24:270:24:29

and the only phone call he made on the morning

0:24:290:24:31

he went off the radar was to one of the local taxi firms.

0:24:310:24:34

Apparently, he wanted to be dropped off at the nearest bar.

0:24:340:24:37

-Which is?

-The Blue Parrot.

0:24:370:24:38

You want us to go over there and see if we can find out anything, Chief?

0:24:380:24:41

It's like you can read my mind!

0:24:410:24:43

Impossible!

0:24:430:24:45

JP!

0:24:450:24:46

Let's go!

0:24:460:24:47

Oh, yes, of course!

0:24:490:24:51

Little Michael who runs the place just got three months for theft.

0:24:510:24:54

Oy, oy, oy, oy, oy, oy, oy!

0:24:540:24:56

His brother Tino must be running it.

0:24:560:24:59

And nothing keeps Tino away from his cricket.

0:24:590:25:02

OK, so let's go and find him, then.

0:25:020:25:03

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

0:25:030:25:05

He could be anywhere on the island.

0:25:050:25:08

His sister's place. His brother's. Either of his girlfriends'.

0:25:080:25:11

OK, Well, I guess we just wait here

0:25:110:25:15

until Tino turns up.

0:25:150:25:18

You know, I was reading a little bit more

0:25:220:25:24

of this book last night, Dwayne. Positive thinking.

0:25:240:25:26

And it says if things aren't exactly working out the way you want,

0:25:260:25:30

there are these visualisation exercises you can use.

0:25:300:25:34

And how the hell is that going to be of any use to us now?

0:25:340:25:37

Well, what we want is for Tino to turn up

0:25:370:25:39

-so we can ask him some questions.

-Uh-huh.

0:25:390:25:42

So, if I close my eyes

0:25:420:25:45

and I picture the path ahead

0:25:450:25:48

and I visualise Tino walking around the bend.

0:25:480:25:52

OK. Yes.

0:25:520:25:54

Yeah, OK. so now I've visualised it,

0:25:540:25:56

what I've willed to happen should actually happen.

0:25:560:25:59

Oh!

0:25:590:26:01

OK!

0:26:020:26:04

Maybe you should try another book.

0:26:130:26:15

Yeah, I probably need to do, you know, a bit more practice on it.

0:26:150:26:18

That's an understatement.

0:26:180:26:20

No way.

0:26:230:26:24

Is that Tino?

0:26:240:26:26

-That's him! The Rasta!

-Oh, my...! It actually worked!

0:26:260:26:29

-JP LAUGHS

-You just have to believe!

0:26:290:26:32

Sir, have you ever heard of a thing called "confrontation therapy"?

0:26:320:26:38

Yeah, a colleague of mine tried it after a tough case. Why?

0:26:380:26:40

Well, I've been looking at the retreat's schedule

0:26:400:26:43

and at 9am the morning Gabe disappeared,

0:26:430:26:45

he was booked in for a one-to-one therapy session with Daniel.

0:26:450:26:48

Which would've been just before Cressida saw them arguing?

0:26:480:26:51

So, what does confrontation therapy involve?

0:26:510:26:54

Well, as far as I can tell,

0:26:540:26:55

it's about taking responsibility for your problems.

0:26:550:26:59

It's pretty extreme. A lot of shrinks reckon it's dangerous.

0:26:590:27:01

Especially if the subject is trying to deal with a significant trauma.

0:27:010:27:05

Like the death of a sister?

0:27:050:27:07

Like the death of a twin sister, yeah.

0:27:070:27:09

OK, Chief, we just spoke to the barman

0:27:090:27:12

who was there on the day Gabe Lee turned up.

0:27:120:27:14

-A guy called Tino.

-And what did Tino have to say?

0:27:140:27:16

That Gabe was clearly very angry when he arrived at the bar.

0:27:160:27:19

And the more he drank, the angrier he got.

0:27:190:27:21

Apparently, he spent the whole time telling Tino

0:27:210:27:24

exactly how much he hated Daniel Friend.

0:27:240:27:26

And get this! Gabe's very last words before he left the bar was...

0:27:260:27:29

"Daniel Friend's got it coming."

0:27:290:27:31

What are you planting?

0:27:370:27:39

Celery or...

0:27:390:27:41

peas?

0:27:410:27:42

Sorry to hear about your sister.

0:27:440:27:46

Why? You didn't know her.

0:27:480:27:50

Well, I know how complicated grief can be.

0:27:520:27:55

It's not just the pain.

0:27:550:27:57

It's the anger and regret...

0:27:580:28:00

..and the guilt.

0:28:020:28:04

She'd split up with her boyfriend.

0:28:060:28:08

They'd been together a couple of years

0:28:080:28:11

and he really messed her around.

0:28:110:28:13

She kept telling me she was fine.

0:28:130:28:16

But she wasn't.

0:28:160:28:17

And I should've seen that. That's what I regret.

0:28:190:28:21

Coming here - has it helped?

0:28:230:28:24

I understand you were having therapy sessions with Daniel.

0:28:240:28:28

Confrontation therapy.

0:28:280:28:30

Daniel kept talking about taking responsibility -

0:28:310:28:34

how we can't move on unless we do.

0:28:340:28:37

It felt like he was telling me it was my fault

0:28:370:28:40

my sister killed herself.

0:28:400:28:42

And this is what prompted your argument with Daniel.

0:28:430:28:46

It's not my fault. It's yours!

0:28:460:28:48

Just before you left the retreat and headed for the

0:28:480:28:52

Blue Parrot?

0:28:520:28:53

I knew... if I'd stayed that I'd...

0:28:550:28:59

-What? Hit him?

-Yes.

-Or worse?

0:28:590:29:01

No! No!

0:29:010:29:03

I left so I could get him out of my sight. So, I could calm down.

0:29:030:29:06

Yeah, but you didn't calm down, did you, Gabe?

0:29:060:29:09

Tino at the Blue Parrot told us that hours after the argument,

0:29:090:29:12

you were still ranting and raving angry towards Daniel.

0:29:120:29:14

But I didn't kill him. Even if I wanted to, I couldn't have.

0:29:140:29:18

I was sitting in that meditation circle with everyone else, wasn't I?

0:29:180:29:22

Gabe's right, Florence. We've got four suspects.

0:29:250:29:28

Each of them has an alibi -

0:29:280:29:30

the same alibi for the time the murder was committed.

0:29:300:29:32

They were all sat together in a meditation circle

0:29:320:29:35

-inside the retreat.

-Exactly.

0:29:350:29:36

So, just how did one of them do it?

0:29:360:29:38

Sir, I just come back from the locksmith

0:29:380:29:41

and he said this type of key would fit some sort of cash-box.

0:29:410:29:44

-A cash-box?

-Hmm.

0:29:440:29:46

Well, you searched the retreat.

0:29:460:29:47

-Did you spot anything like that?

-I'm afraid not, sir.

-Great.

0:29:470:29:50

So as well as the belt that was used to kill the victim,

0:29:500:29:52

we now have a cashbox - two items that have gone missing.

0:29:520:29:55

Chief, I've finished going through all the phone records

0:29:550:29:57

and the e-mail correspondence from the retreat.

0:29:570:29:59

-Anything of interest?

-Just one thing.

0:29:590:30:02

Two months ago, someone from the retreat

0:30:020:30:04

called the emergency services.

0:30:040:30:05

Now, it wasn't for us,

0:30:050:30:06

so that means it was either for the fire brigade or an ambulance.

0:30:060:30:10

-Do we know which?

-I'm waiting for a return call.

0:30:100:30:12

-OK. Well, let's see what turns up there.

-Yes, Chief.

0:30:120:30:15

So, how're we getting on sorting through Daniel's paperwork?

0:30:160:30:18

Ah, we've gone through the first box

0:30:180:30:20

which has all his papers since he moved here.

0:30:200:30:22

Nothing before that. Haven't started on the second box yet.

0:30:220:30:25

Well, I guess that's my homework for tonight, then.

0:30:250:30:28

Oh, sir, don't forget your drink with the commissioner.

0:30:280:30:31

Sort the speech out first. And then I'll get stuck into that lot.

0:30:310:30:33

I'm just trying to get a sense of you

0:30:370:30:39

as a...civilian, as well as a commissioner.

0:30:390:30:41

What you look like when you take off your uniform.

0:30:410:30:44

Excuse me?

0:30:440:30:45

Could've put that better.

0:30:460:30:48

Erm, no, I just want to get a feel for the real Selwyn Patterson.

0:30:480:30:51

-I mean, I don't even know if you're married?

-Why would you?

0:30:510:30:54

Well, why don't you take me back to where it all began?

0:30:570:30:59

-Were you born here on the island?

-Yes.

0:30:590:31:02

-And do you have any family nearby or...

-No.

0:31:030:31:06

So, what are some of your earliest memories?

0:31:060:31:11

I'm not sure that's relevant.

0:31:120:31:14

You're hardly going to use that in your speech, are you?

0:31:140:31:17

Ah, Catherine!

0:31:170:31:19

Here we are, gentlemen.

0:31:190:31:20

Thank you, Mayor Bordey.

0:31:200:31:22

So, what's the occasion?

0:31:220:31:24

I've been helping the inspector

0:31:240:31:27

put the final touches to his speech for tomorrow night.

0:31:270:31:29

But it's getting late.

0:31:290:31:31

Ah! I hope I've been of use.

0:31:350:31:37

Yes! Very helpful.

0:31:370:31:39

JACK CHUCKLES

0:31:410:31:43

Marvellous!

0:31:430:31:44

I've got nothing. I'll be honest, Catherine.

0:31:440:31:47

I am way out of my comfort zone here - miles!

0:31:470:31:49

HE SIGHS

0:31:500:31:52

When I became mayor,

0:31:520:31:54

I was terrified of speaking in public.

0:31:540:31:57

But I've realised there are only two things to remember.

0:31:570:32:00

And what are they?

0:32:000:32:01

-Number one, keep it short.

-And number two?

0:32:010:32:04

-Keep it short.

-I can do short.

0:32:040:32:05

How about I just say, "Fair play to you, Commissioner.

0:32:050:32:08

-"You're a great fella, here's your award."

-Mm-hm.

0:32:080:32:11

HE SIGHS

0:32:190:32:21

-Ah, that's brilliant, thank you.

-No problem.

0:33:070:33:10

Ah, Florence! Good morning.

0:33:140:33:16

-Morning, sir. JP told me you were here.

-I am.

0:33:160:33:19

Was that Archie Martindale you were talking to?

0:33:190:33:21

-It was indeed. Do you know him?

-Everyone knows Archie.

0:33:210:33:24

He's a legend on the island.

0:33:240:33:26

He must be, what, 83 now?

0:33:260:33:28

84, and he's still driving the ambulance. It's amazing!

0:33:280:33:31

So, what were you talking to him about?

0:33:310:33:33

Ah, yes, sit down. I'll explain.

0:33:330:33:35

Sorry, monsieur, two more coffees, please.

0:33:350:33:38

Right, so last night, I came across these.

0:33:380:33:42

Letters to Cressida, all unopened.

0:33:420:33:44

Daniel must've been keeping them from her.

0:33:440:33:47

They're from her parents.

0:33:470:33:48

From what I can glean,

0:33:510:33:53

Daniel insisted that Cressida cut off all communication

0:33:530:33:55

between friends and family after they got married and moved out here.

0:33:550:33:58

-Really?

-For his all Zen-like calm,

0:33:580:34:00

Daniel Friend, it seems, was a very controlling man.

0:34:000:34:03

I've come across people like that before. I know how they operate.

0:34:030:34:06

And then I remembered Dwayne saying that the emergency services

0:34:060:34:09

had been called to the retreat just a couple of months ago.

0:34:090:34:12

You think Daniel might've hurt Cressida?

0:34:120:34:14

-There you go.

-It's just a hunch. That's all.

0:34:140:34:16

But I chased the call and yes,

0:34:160:34:17

the ambulance was called to tend to injuries that Cressida had received.

0:34:170:34:21

Thank you.

0:34:210:34:22

-Which is why you were talking to Archie?

-Exactly.

0:34:220:34:25

He says that Cressida had treatment for a broken rib.

0:34:250:34:28

Daniel was with her.

0:34:280:34:30

-Did either of them say what had happened?

-Yeah.

0:34:300:34:33

They said she fell off a ladder fixing something or other.

0:34:330:34:36

But Archie had doubts?

0:34:360:34:38

He was suspicious.

0:34:380:34:40

Said that Cressida was tearful, on edge,

0:34:400:34:42

but they both stuck to the ladder story.

0:34:420:34:44

Nothing he could do about it.

0:34:440:34:46

So, what? You think maybe Cressida had had enough and fought back?

0:34:460:34:50

She's the one who killed Daniel?

0:34:500:34:52

Well, only she can answer that.

0:34:520:34:55

-This is where he used to swim every day.

-Lovely.

0:35:140:35:18

We found these in Daniel's personal effects.

0:35:190:35:21

They're all addressed to you and most of them unopened.

0:35:210:35:25

Daniel was always threatened by Mum and Dad.

0:35:270:35:30

-They were suspicious of him.

-Why was that?

0:35:300:35:32

Because of the family trust,

0:35:320:35:34

-they assumed that everyone was on the make.

-But Daniel wasn't?

-No.

0:35:340:35:39

Daniel wasn't interested in money. He rejected any kind of materialism.

0:35:390:35:42

The retreat, whose idea was it?

0:35:460:35:48

Daniel's.

0:35:490:35:50

Initially.

0:35:500:35:52

But I didn't need much convincing.

0:35:520:35:54

-Did he always get what he wanted?

-Two months ago

0:35:540:35:56

you were taken to hospital. A broken rib.

0:35:560:35:59

What happened?

0:36:000:36:01

It was an accident, that's all. I fell off a step ladder.

0:36:030:36:06

Are you absolutely sure about that, Cressida?

0:36:060:36:08

He's not here now.

0:36:090:36:11

He can't hurt you any more.

0:36:110:36:13

It was a row that got out of hand, that's all.

0:36:150:36:19

I wanted to go home to England for my brother's wedding.

0:36:190:36:22

-Daniel didn't want me to go.

-So, he hurt you?

0:36:220:36:24

Not on purpose.

0:36:240:36:26

If you'd seen him afterwards,

0:36:260:36:28

he was always so contrite and loving.

0:36:280:36:30

"Always"? So this happened more than once?

0:36:300:36:33

You must have been desperate to get away, to escape.

0:36:330:36:37

I imagine you were prepared to do anything?

0:36:370:36:39

I could've walked away if I wanted to.

0:36:390:36:43

I didn't need to kill him to escape our marriage,

0:36:430:36:45

-if that's what you're insinuating.

-Mmm.

0:36:450:36:48

-Ah! Chief! You're back just in time.

-What've you got?

0:36:510:36:54

You see, we couldn't find anything on Daniel Friend

0:36:540:36:57

that dated back farther than three years.

0:36:570:36:59

His tax affairs. Bank records. E-mail accounts.

0:36:590:37:02

-Even his current passport were issued three years ago.

-Go on...

0:37:020:37:06

Now, me and JP are starting to think that Daniel Friend

0:37:060:37:09

isn't actually Daniel Friend.

0:37:090:37:11

So, who was Daniel Friend before he was Daniel Friend?

0:37:110:37:14

That's what we don't yet know.

0:37:140:37:15

If he did change his name, it wasn't done officially.

0:37:150:37:18

So, our victim had a previous identity.

0:37:180:37:22

I was on a fraud case once, back when I first started.

0:37:240:37:26

Months, we were after this fella.

0:37:260:37:28

He was so slippery, we used to call him "The Eel."

0:37:280:37:30

He kept reinventing himself, new identities, the lot.

0:37:300:37:34

But, finally, he tripped himself up.

0:37:340:37:36

You see, he'd stashed mementoes of his previous life

0:37:360:37:39

under the floorboards. Couldn't quite let go, I suppose.

0:37:390:37:42

But we haven't found anything like that in Daniel's possessions.

0:37:420:37:45

Mmm, not a whiff.

0:37:450:37:46

Yeah, but when we found Daniel, there was a key...

0:37:460:37:50

Chief!

0:37:500:37:52

..for a cashbox which we haven't yet found.

0:37:520:37:54

Now, what if this box contains the remnants of his previous life?

0:37:540:37:58

I think the answer lies somewhere in the ground here.

0:38:010:38:03

Dwayne, do your thing.

0:38:030:38:04

Ah, Chief, there's quite a lot to cover, here, you know?

0:38:040:38:08

Any specific place you want me to start?

0:38:080:38:10

Your guess is as good as mine.

0:38:100:38:12

Maybe we try visualising finding it,

0:38:140:38:16

just like you saw me do earlier.

0:38:160:38:18

But what if I'm not like you? What if I haven't got the gift?

0:38:180:38:22

It's worth a try.

0:38:220:38:23

HE SIGHS

0:38:240:38:26

It was never going to happen, was it?

0:38:360:38:38

METAL-DETECTOR BUZZES

0:38:380:38:40

It worked!

0:38:410:38:43

-Sorry, what just happened there?

-No idea!

0:38:440:38:47

You were right, sir.

0:38:540:38:56

Yes, well, let's see if this tells us

0:38:560:38:59

just who Daniel Friend really is.

0:38:590:39:01

Hello, Michael Bennett.

0:39:110:39:13

Yes, uh-huh.

0:39:170:39:18

Unlike Daniel Friend, Michael Bennett has a past.

0:39:180:39:21

And a pretty colourful one, too, by the looks of things.

0:39:210:39:24

A string of failed businesses, investigated for embezzlement.

0:39:240:39:27

Thank you very much. That was the airport.

0:39:270:39:29

Now there was a Michael Bennett

0:39:290:39:30

booked on a flight to South Africa the day Daniel died.

0:39:300:39:33

So, that's what he was up to. Why he was going to dig up the box.

0:39:330:39:36

He was making a break for it!

0:39:360:39:37

So, this cash must have been his running-away fund.

0:39:370:39:40

But what was he running away from?

0:39:400:39:43

Sir, take a look at this.

0:39:430:39:44

Four years ago, Michael Bennett was the co-owner

0:39:440:39:47

of a homoeopathic business in Hertfordshire which went bust,

0:39:470:39:51

leaving his partner 100,000 in debt.

0:39:510:39:54

Why is that significant?

0:39:540:39:55

-Look who co-owned it.

-CLACKS KEY

0:39:550:39:57

Eva Ingram!

0:40:020:40:04

-HE KNOCKS ON DOOR

-Eva?

0:40:090:40:11

Eva?

0:40:130:40:14

She's not there.

0:40:140:40:16

Oh, she said she'd cleared it with you, Inspector.

0:40:160:40:19

Did she now? So where did she go?

0:40:190:40:21

Oh, she took a taxi to the harbour.

0:40:210:40:23

The harbour!

0:40:230:40:25

She's here somewhere!

0:40:320:40:34

There she is.

0:40:360:40:37

Just a one way ticket, please.

0:40:390:40:41

Going somewhere nice, Miss Ingram?

0:40:480:40:50

Michael Bennett ripped you off,

0:40:520:40:54

left you £100,000 in debt,

0:40:540:40:56

and then vanished off the face of the Earth.

0:40:560:40:59

I'd say that gives you a pretty good reason to want revenge.

0:40:590:41:02

-Well, I didn't come here to kill him.

-No? So, why did you come here?

0:41:020:41:05

What, you just fancied a bit of spiritual rejuvenation?

0:41:050:41:09

-And then by sheer coincidence.

-No.

0:41:090:41:11

-I mean, there was one coincidence involved.

-Which was?

0:41:110:41:15

One day, a friend of mine called me

0:41:150:41:17

and said she'd happened upon this review of the retreat online.

0:41:170:41:21

And there was a photo of Michael?

0:41:210:41:22

Right, so you booked yourself a place, what then?

0:41:220:41:24

-What was the plan?

-Well, I mean to confront him.

0:41:240:41:28

And demand an apology.

0:41:280:41:30

And what he owed me.

0:41:300:41:31

He looked so shocked.

0:41:310:41:33

He couldn't believe that I'd found him.

0:41:330:41:36

Welcome.

0:41:360:41:37

-And what did he say?

-That he'd have the money

0:41:380:41:40

by the end of the week but, um,

0:41:400:41:42

-he begged me not to mention it to Cressida.

-And you believed him?

0:41:420:41:45

Even though you'd been here before, left high and dry?

0:41:450:41:48

Well, I'm not sure if I believed him,

0:41:480:41:50

but I knew I wasn't going to leave here without my money.

0:41:500:41:53

Well, I'm sure you weren't. But Daniel was.

0:41:530:41:55

He had a flight booked and a big load of cash.

0:41:550:41:58

I think he was about to do exactly what he'd done to you before -

0:41:580:42:01

his disappearing act, leaving you with only one option.

0:42:010:42:04

If you couldn't get your money, then you'd have to settle for revenge.

0:42:040:42:08

One man, two names.

0:42:130:42:15

Daniel Friend and Michael Bennett.

0:42:150:42:17

Four suspects, each of them with a motive.

0:42:170:42:20

And yet not one of them had the opportunity

0:42:200:42:23

to follow Daniel down that path and then strangle him

0:42:230:42:26

because they were all sitting together in a circle

0:42:260:42:29

in the half hour between Daniel being seen alive

0:42:290:42:32

and being found dead.

0:42:320:42:33

So, just how on earth did our killer manage to do it?

0:42:340:42:37

Anyone?

0:42:380:42:39

It's impossible.

0:42:410:42:42

-Except it can't be. Because it did happen.

-Sir...

0:42:420:42:45

-The time. Don't we need to get ready for the award ceremony?

-Oh!

0:42:450:42:48

It starts in less than an hour and I've still got no speech.

0:42:480:42:51

What am I going to do?

0:42:510:42:52

If we put together everything we know about the commissioner,

0:42:520:42:55

I'm sure we can come up with something. So...

0:42:550:42:58

What have we got?

0:42:590:43:00

OK, so, erm,

0:43:000:43:02

-Yes, we know that the commissioner was born on the island.

-Mm-hmm.

0:43:020:43:07

So, erm, yes, anyone else?

0:43:070:43:10

Well, he...

0:43:100:43:12

-He's, um...

-He is, erm...

0:43:120:43:14

..the commissioner, let's think...

0:43:140:43:16

ALL MURMUR

0:43:160:43:18

Chief, the man is an enigma!

0:43:180:43:20

HE SIGHS

0:43:200:43:23

It is my great pleasure... It is my great pleasure...

0:43:240:43:28

It is my great pleasure... It is my great pleasure,

0:43:280:43:33

this evening, to say a few words in honour...

0:43:330:43:36

APPLAUSE

0:43:450:43:46

And, finally, we come to the last, and most important,

0:43:460:43:49

of our civic awards this evening.

0:43:490:43:52

The Lifetime Award for Services to the Island.

0:43:520:43:56

And here, to present the award,

0:43:560:43:59

is Detective Inspector Jack Mooney.

0:43:590:44:02

-QUIETLY:

-God help me...

-APPLAUSE

0:44:020:44:04

You'll be great, sir.

0:44:040:44:06

What can you say about Commissioner Selwyn Patterson?

0:44:140:44:17

FEEDBACK SQUEAKS, HE TAPS

0:44:200:44:22

HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:44:220:44:24

Selwyn Patterson was born here in Saint Marie.

0:44:250:44:29

And, as you all know, he's been our Commissioner for quite a while now.

0:44:290:44:33

And even if some of you aren't certain

0:44:330:44:36

of what a commissioner actually does,

0:44:360:44:38

well I'm sure you'll all agree that

0:44:380:44:40

he seems to know exactly what he's doing.

0:44:400:44:43

SCATTERED COUGHS

0:44:430:44:45

Hand on heart, I don't really know the commissioner that well.

0:44:510:44:55

I mean, I've only been on the island for less than a year.

0:44:550:44:58

But I'd like to think, even in that short time,

0:44:580:45:01

I've got to know something about the people of Saint Marie.

0:45:010:45:04

People like the team I work with,

0:45:040:45:07

who'll come around to keep you company

0:45:070:45:08

when your daughter flies off to the other side of the world.

0:45:080:45:11

Or bring dinner to the office when you've been working too hard.

0:45:110:45:15

In short, the people of this island are among the most friendly,

0:45:150:45:20

decent, good-hearted people I've ever had the pleasure to meet.

0:45:200:45:23

And if you've decided that Selwyn Patterson deserves this award,

0:45:230:45:28

well, then he must be a very fine man indeed.

0:45:280:45:31

Congratulations, Commissioner.

0:45:320:45:33

APPLAUSE

0:45:330:45:35

APPROVING MURMURS

0:45:350:45:38

Well said, sir.

0:45:480:45:50

It's typical, isn't it?

0:45:500:45:51

I mean, you can spend days trying to plan something

0:45:510:45:54

or you can make something up on the spot,

0:45:540:45:56

and the result is exactly the same.

0:45:560:45:58

Thank you, DI Mooney, for those kind and well-chosen words.

0:45:580:46:02

Make something up on the spot.

0:46:020:46:04

Sir?

0:46:040:46:05

What if that's what the killer did?

0:46:050:46:06

Because Daniel wasn't where he was supposed to be.

0:46:060:46:09

Closing our eyes...

0:46:120:46:14

And then Gabe went to get his phone

0:46:170:46:19

and then that's when we called your lot.

0:46:190:46:21

It's not my fault!

0:46:210:46:23

We call them emotional expression sculptures.

0:46:230:46:25

She'd split up with her boyfriend.

0:46:250:46:27

Hello, Michael Bennett.

0:46:340:46:36

I've got it!

0:46:360:46:38

CONCERNED MURMURS

0:46:380:46:40

I believe that sound you've just heard is DI Mooney solving a case.

0:46:430:46:48

Sounds like you have urgent matters to attend to.

0:46:500:46:53

That's it. That's exactly it!

0:46:540:46:56

All this time, I've had it the wrong way around.

0:46:560:46:59

Dwayne, call the undertaker. We need to get Daniel's body back.

0:46:590:47:02

And wake up the pathologist. We need him to run one more test.

0:47:020:47:05

Everything's all set, sir.

0:47:110:47:13

A camera-phone.

0:47:170:47:19

Ubiquitous these days. We all have one.

0:47:190:47:22

Our every moment is recorded.

0:47:220:47:24

No-one, it seems, can eat a sandwich

0:47:240:47:25

without wanting to take a selfie with it.

0:47:250:47:28

Yet, these little fellas are strictly verboten

0:47:280:47:30

here at the Calming Breath. Why?

0:47:300:47:32

Well, Daniel claims it was for holistic reasons.

0:47:320:47:36

But that wasn't the case.

0:47:360:47:38

His obsession with privacy wasn't for his guests' benefit.

0:47:380:47:41

It was for his own benefit,

0:47:410:47:42

because the truth is Daniel was terrified

0:47:420:47:45

-of being exposed for who he really was. Michael Bennett.

-Who?

0:47:450:47:50

But Daniel wasn't the only liar here at the retreat.

0:47:500:47:53

You've all got your secrets,

0:47:530:47:54

but only one of you has been lying

0:47:540:47:57

to cover up the fact that you're a murderer.

0:47:570:47:59

Now, all of you sitting there are confident

0:48:000:48:03

that you've got the perfect alibi.

0:48:030:48:05

But truth be told, the question that's been eating away at me

0:48:050:48:08

for the last few days is how on earth

0:48:080:48:10

did our killer manage to strangle

0:48:100:48:11

Daniel while sitting in a meditation circle?

0:48:110:48:13

You don't still think it was one of us, do you?

0:48:130:48:16

Oh, more than ever.

0:48:160:48:18

As a matter of fact, I know for certain it was.

0:48:180:48:20

I mean, I know the real reason why Daniel

0:48:200:48:23

didn't go for his swim that day was because he was on his way

0:48:230:48:27

to retrieve this from where he'd buried it.

0:48:270:48:29

It contained the few remnants of Daniel's former life.

0:48:290:48:32

Michael Bennett's passport.

0:48:320:48:34

His birth certificate.

0:48:340:48:35

And a significant amount of cash.

0:48:350:48:38

An escape fund, if you will.

0:48:380:48:39

Now that his cover had been blown,

0:48:390:48:41

by the woman he used to own a business with,

0:48:410:48:43

he knew it was high time to scarper.

0:48:430:48:45

He had his flights to South Africa booked and ready.

0:48:450:48:48

But Daniel would never make it as far as Johannesburg.

0:48:480:48:51

He wouldn't even make it as far as the cash box.

0:48:510:48:53

Because while he was on his way to get that...

0:48:530:48:55

he collapsed and fell down in the dirt.

0:48:550:48:59

Unconscious.

0:48:590:49:01

Unconscious? Why?

0:49:020:49:04

Because he'd been drugged.

0:49:040:49:06

Drugged? You said he'd been strangled.

0:49:060:49:08

Oh, Daniel was strangled all right, that's for sure.

0:49:080:49:11

But that wasn't the way he was meant to die. No.

0:49:110:49:14

He was supposed to drown.

0:49:140:49:16

Wasn't he...

0:49:160:49:17

..Gabe?

0:49:190:49:21

-Me? You can't be serious?

-Yeah!

0:49:230:49:25

We went back to the pathologist

0:49:250:49:27

and we asked him to run an additional test on Daniel's body.

0:49:270:49:31

And that showed that around 65 milligram

0:49:310:49:33

of a strong, fast-acting sedative was in his system.

0:49:330:49:37

I remember Cressida saying...

0:49:370:49:39

It was about 2.30.

0:49:390:49:40

We had just finished lunch.

0:49:400:49:42

I'm guessing that's how you got the sedative into Daniel's system.

0:49:440:49:47

In his green tea.

0:49:470:49:48

You knew what time Daniel went for his swim every day, 2.30.

0:49:510:49:55

Enjoy your swim, my love.

0:49:550:49:57

It was only a few minutes' walk from here to the beach.

0:49:580:50:01

And you knew what time lunch was served, so it wasn't very difficult

0:50:010:50:04

to work out what kind of a dose to give him.

0:50:040:50:06

Especially, as you're a trained doctor.

0:50:080:50:10

Just enough to kick in as he was swimming out into the ocean.

0:50:100:50:13

Causing him to fall into a deep sleep and drown.

0:50:130:50:16

Best case scenario - his body would be lost to the ocean.

0:50:160:50:18

-Never to return.

-Worst case,

0:50:180:50:21

cause of death would be dismissed as a tragic accident.

0:50:210:50:24

Meaning no-one would bother to ask for a blood analysis of the victim.

0:50:240:50:28

Not any more than they would if the cause of death was strangulation.

0:50:280:50:32

Unlucky for you, Daniel decided not to go for a swim that day.

0:50:320:50:36

Instead he headed for the Contemplation Garden.

0:50:360:50:39

No wonder finding him lying on the path knocked you sideways.

0:50:390:50:42

That was the last thing you were expecting.

0:50:420:50:45

And worst of all, he was still alive.

0:50:450:50:46

He was still alive?!

0:50:460:50:49

In that moment, you realised you needed to improvise.

0:50:490:50:52

So thinking on your feet you made a bold decision. You told Cressida...

0:50:520:50:56

He's dead.

0:50:560:50:58

While Eva was comforting you,

0:51:030:51:05

Gabe offered to go and get his phone so as he could call the police,

0:51:050:51:09

knowing that this would give him enough time

0:51:090:51:11

to get back to Daniel and finish the job.

0:51:110:51:14

So, Gabe ran and grabbed his phone.

0:51:140:51:17

And then, he headed back to Daniel's body.

0:51:180:51:21

And then...so as he wouldn't leave any fingerprints,

0:51:220:51:25

he used the only weapon that he had on him...

0:51:250:51:28

..the belt from around his robe...

0:51:290:51:32

..and he strangled Daniel.

0:51:370:51:39

There was no struggle.

0:51:450:51:47

How could there be?

0:51:470:51:49

The man was unconscious

0:51:490:51:50

and utterly defenceless.

0:51:500:51:52

And that left only one more thing for you to do

0:51:540:51:57

before returning to the others. Dispose of the belt.

0:51:570:52:00

So, where did you hide it?

0:52:020:52:04

No? Dwayne, JP, if you would?

0:52:070:52:10

On the morning of Daniel's death, Cressida, here

0:52:130:52:17

held an art therapy session with Bryn and Gabe.

0:52:170:52:21

It was only a few hours later that Daniel was killed.

0:52:210:52:24

The clay would have still been wet.

0:52:240:52:27

SMASHING

0:52:310:52:33

THEY GASP

0:52:330:52:34

Once you'd hidden the incriminating belt with Daniel's DNA on it,

0:52:360:52:41

you then took a clean belt from the storeroom,

0:52:410:52:44

and tied it round your own robe.

0:52:440:52:46

Why? What did Daniel ever do to you?

0:52:470:52:50

It wasn't about what Daniel did to Gabe.

0:52:500:52:53

Was it? It was what he did to Gabe's sister.

0:52:530:52:56

He really messed her around.

0:52:560:52:59

She kept telling me she was fine.

0:52:590:53:02

But she wasn't.

0:53:020:53:03

The man you married, Cressida,

0:53:030:53:05

was once in a relationship with Ruth Lee.

0:53:050:53:08

But she knew him as Michael Bennett.

0:53:090:53:11

Now as far as I can tell, Michael Bennett,

0:53:110:53:14

he only ever achieved real success at one thing. Screwing over women.

0:53:140:53:17

BOTH SIGH

0:53:170:53:20

Ruth was totally in love with Michael.

0:53:260:53:29

And then, he just vanished.

0:53:310:53:32

Took her savings, her car and broke her heart so badly.

0:53:320:53:38

She...she never came back from it.

0:53:380:53:40

Daniel Friend spent a lifetime running away.

0:53:400:53:43

From his debt.

0:53:440:53:45

From responsibility.

0:53:450:53:47

From himself.

0:53:470:53:49

But like I say, in an age where our every move is recorded,

0:53:490:53:53

no-one can outrun their past.

0:53:530:53:55

Of course, the irony here is

0:53:550:53:57

that if Daniel hadn't been trying to run away on this occasion,

0:53:570:54:01

there's every chance that his killer would have got away with murder.

0:54:010:54:05

You know, when he saw me, he didn't even recognise me.

0:54:050:54:08

That's how little my sister meant to him.

0:54:080:54:11

I don't regret what I did. He deserved it!

0:54:110:54:14

At least, now Ruth can rest in peace.

0:54:140:54:16

JP.

0:54:180:54:19

OK, up you get.

0:54:210:54:23

Well, I can't deny what my eyes saw, JP.

0:54:360:54:41

This book really does have magic in it.

0:54:410:54:43

For instance right now,

0:54:430:54:45

Catherine is going to bring us both over a free beer.

0:54:450:54:50

And how did you come to that?

0:54:500:54:51

Well, how do you think, man? I visualised it! Remember?

0:54:510:54:56

Here you are, gentlemen. Two beers.

0:54:570:55:00

You see? Cheers!

0:55:010:55:03

Oh!

0:55:030:55:04

And your bill, Dwayne!

0:55:040:55:07

HE CHUCKLES

0:55:070:55:08

But, Catherine, how come this says, "ten beers"?

0:55:080:55:12

The last time you were in, you forgot to pay.

0:55:120:55:14

But you don't mind settling up now, do you?

0:55:140:55:18

Oh, come on, no.

0:55:180:55:19

Later.

0:55:190:55:20

HE CHUCKLES

0:55:200:55:22

Like I said, it's all a big con.

0:55:260:55:29

You sure you're all right to finish off here, sir?

0:55:340:55:36

Yeah, you go on ahead.

0:55:360:55:38

-See you in the morning.

-Night, sir.

0:55:380:55:41

DS Cassell.

0:55:430:55:44

Commissioner.

0:55:460:55:47

It might not have been quite the speech I was hoping for,

0:55:530:55:57

but in its own peculiar way, I appreciated the sentiment.

0:55:570:56:01

Well, it was from the heart.

0:56:010:56:03

I gathered.

0:56:030:56:05

I was pleased to note how well you're settling into island life.

0:56:050:56:08

Saint Marie's clearly got under your skin.

0:56:080:56:11

Has indeed, sir.

0:56:110:56:12

Cricket.

0:56:200:56:21

Sorry?

0:56:210:56:23

Watching my father play cricket.

0:56:230:56:25

You wanted to know what was my earliest memory.

0:56:250:56:27

-Just for the record.

-Right.

0:56:270:56:29

-It's too bad I couldn't put that in my speech.

-Who knows?

0:56:300:56:34

Maybe in time, we might get to know each other a little better.

0:56:340:56:38

I'd like that.

0:56:380:56:39

Perhaps we could go for another drink.

0:56:390:56:42

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, Inspector.

0:56:420:56:44

Police, please!

0:57:060:57:08

GRUNTING

0:57:080:57:10

Cordell Thomas...

0:57:100:57:11

Now why would our victim be clutching a peanut?

0:57:110:57:13

I. Didn't. Do it. Inspector.

0:57:130:57:17

You have hot-footed it up here to stuff your face,

0:57:170:57:20

while the rest of your poor colleagues

0:57:200:57:22

-are working through the night.

-But it's my birthday!

0:57:220:57:24

First girl I ever kissed had the same initials.

0:57:240:57:26

Leony Brennan. Terrifying, she was.

0:57:260:57:28

God, I hope it's not her...

0:57:280:57:29

The leader of a spiritual retreat is strangled and Jack and his team are baffled by the fact that all their suspects were in a meditation circle at the time of the murder.
