RADIO: "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper
Turn it off!
RADIO TURNS OFF
RADIO STARTS AGAIN
Turn it off!
Can you hear that?!
Turn it off!
Karen, could I... Yeah, give me a couple of seconds, darling...
Right, I'm back.
Oh, that's fantastic! Jack.
Yeah, no, you must be so relieved.
No, of course I'll tell everybody.
No, you look after Jack, don't worry about coming back. How's Rob?
No, don't you worry, we'll all be back to normal in no time.
All right, take care.
How are you feeling?
I know how hard this must be.
Of course, you're aware of how badly
this investigation's gone for them already.
And that there's bound to be a certain amount of...
personal animosity toward you.
But we can turn that to our advantage.
Our main aim, at this stage, is to slow the process down.
So we're looking for weaknesses.
Any technicalities we can use to buy us some time.
"Playing for snookers", we used to call it.
Actually, I wouldn't refer to your background.
It's an open goal.
And I'm sorry, but if you don't want to fight,
then you may as well tell me now.
I don't like wasting my time.
I'm all yours.
PHOTOGRAPHER: Doctor Carter!
Have you seen that grubby little oik out there? It's disgusting.
-How are you doing?
-If there's anything we can do to help.
-At any time.
-I'll be fine.
-You know, Heston...
-If everyone just leaves me alone.
I've no idea. All day probably.
Doing well. Thanks.
Good. He was lucky.
I know you'd like to be in on this one...
But it's probably best I'm not.
-He's going to get everything he's got coming to him, OK?
I want you to remember that my door is always open to you.
I don't just mean Kevin and Elaine. I mean everybody.
This is going to be a difficult thing for us to put behind us.
It won't be easy. But I think we should make a start
-and that means pulling together.
Now, Zara and Daniel will be back from holiday at lunchtime.
-Could you cover this morning?
-Well, thanks a lot, everybody.
And, whatever you do, just ignore the nasty little creep outside.
Kevin, could I have a word with you?
-I'm just pleased about Jack.
-Yeah, me too, I can't tell you.
-How are you now?
-I'm fine thanks, Heston.
Kevin, listen, I just wanted to say to you...
-If you've got any problems...
-You've said that already.
-..and you can always talk to Daniel.
As your ex-mentor, if you've got a problem...
-Are you serious?
-Of course I'm serious.
Well, what's wrong with that?
Mr Kellor's solicitor is also present.
-Rachel Anne Betts.
Mr Kellor, you are accused of the murder of Lauren Porter
and the attempted murder of Jack Hollins. Are you guilty?
You don't have to answer that.
As we have a first hand account of Mr Kellor's attempt to murder
Jack Hollins, I'll come back to that later.
-Where were you on the night Lauren died?
-And when was that exactly?
September the 20th. Between the hours of 10pm and midnight.
-I can't be absolutely sure.
-I find that hard to believe.
I could've been on the sofa.
-But I was at home.
# I've got a little list I've got a little list
# Of society offenders Who might well be underground
# And who never would be missed Who never would be missed... #
KNOCK ON DOOR Yes?
# There's the pestilential nuisances Who write for autographs... #
I am so sorry, Doctor Carter.
One week to go. I am so excited!
-Oh, you know it back to front.
-Yes, but not the right way.
You will be magnificent.
-King of the Cocos
-I don't know, with all this business.
-You must put it all behind you.
-Try telling the patients that.
-And young Kevin is about to explode!
-Do not worry.
Mrs Parsons and I have it all in hand.
# And some day it may happen That a victim must be found
# I've got a little list... #
So let's go back to Jack Hollins.
-Why did you try to kill him?
-No, that's an assumption.
He was caught holding a pillow over his face.
I don't think he was trying to make him more comfortable, were you, Mr Kellor?
-Mr Kellor is unable to say at this time.
-Unable or unwilling?
He was your friend, though, wouldn't you say?
No...I wouldn't say friend.
Well, you helped him in his studies? A mentor almost.
I just wanted to give something back.
But over time, I found him increasingly untrustworthy and...
-So you attacked him.
-Did you turn on Lauren in the same way?
-We've already addressed that question.
But you knew Lauren? Jack found out about your relationship and you tried to kill him.
-I'm sorry, that's pure conjecture.
-But why else?
Except to cover up his murder of Lauren Porter?
Please answer the question.
Why did you attack him?
-An eye for an eye?
Well, come on, think about it.
-Maybe it was Jack Hollins who killed Lauren.
-How are you, Doctor Cassidy?
-I'm fine, thank you.
After all these terrible things going on.
-That's all over and done with now.
-It must have been a shock, though.
Oh, that poor girl.
It doesn't bear thinking about.
You never know what's going to happen.
You could've all been murdered in your beds!
-Elaine, could I borrow you for a minute?
So, who have I got today, then?
Uh, you'll be seeing Doctor Tyler.
What?! Him what done it?
He did not do anything.
But even so! Wasn't he the boyfriend or something?
-Now, Maureen, do not get into one of your states.
How would you like it? It gives you the willies.
-Is there a problem?
-Not at all.
No, I'm sorry, I don't want to cause a fuss.
But...I'd really rather see someone else.
I will change it to Doctor Carter.
-But you will have to come back this afternoon.
-Oh, thank you.
-Did he have the necessary expertise?
-He's a bright lad.
-And the stomach?
To go back and handle her corpse, a few days later?
Take a blade and cut off her finger?
Do you think he could be that clinical?
Perhaps that's something you'd need to ask Mr Hollins.
Why didn't you put it in your report?
There wasn't any proof.
-So you took the law into your own hands?
Look, I wouldn't have killed him.
I wouldn't have done that. It was just a moment of...anger.
According to Jack Hollins, you chloroformed him,
put him in a body bag and left him for dead in the canal.
When that didn't work you tried to suffocate him as he lay unconscious.
Not really a flash of anger, is it?
It's more a premeditated and calculated attempt to murder him.
Mr Kellor has no comment.
Jack woke up, you see, despite your attempts.
Lots to tell us.
-He's a bright boy.
-Is this really necessary?
Let's cut the bull, Harrison.
You tried to kill Jack
because he discovered your relationship with Lauren.
Oh, let me guess, "no comment".
I'm sorry but if a patient prefers to be seen by someone else...
He's completely innocent and you know that.
But they do not.
Then it's your job to tell them. It's the least you can do.
I am more than aware of what my job is.
Then you should be doing it better!
By giving him your full support. Like Julia said.
You are right.
-So why did you visit Jack in hospital?
-What do you think?
-You were concerned about his wellbeing even though you put him there?
-I really don't remember!
Maybe it just seemed like a good idea at the time.
How do you explain these sudden lapses in memory?
For a man in your profession.
With such a highly trained, scientific mind.
In all the years of working together,
-I've never noticed you having this problem.
Quite the opposite. You seemed confident in your abilities.
With all due respect, Lynette,
there are lots of things that you don't notice.
-Arrogant, some might say.
-Which is probably why we're here now.
-You really want to know?
-I think what he's trying to say...
I'd like to hear it from him.
..is that false accusations have already been made on this case.
And the same thing's happening now.
We made another sweep on Lauren's house.
Oh, really. Not Marcus, surely?
Absolutely clean. Not one molecule to suggest that Jack was ever there.
-What about me? Find anything?
-Course not, cos you cleaned it.
What, you can prove that, can you?
-Who else, Harrison?
Who else is up to your impeccable standards?
Which means that in actual fact...
How stupid do you think we are?!
..you don't have any evidence
to connect Mr Kellor to the murder of Lauren Porter. Do you?
Interview suspended, 10.52.
-They're trying to discredit Jack.
-And me, for that matter.
-What about his alibi?
Well, they're bound to try and find some hole to crawl out through.
-You don't believe it, do you? Not for a second?
-What do you think?
She's good though, I'll give her that. Smarmy cow.
I don't care if she is good!
We've got to get it right for once, this time, haven't we?
Sorry, boss, I just don't want him dragged back into this.
Not after what he's been through.
-You don't think I'm up to it. Don't think I'm good enough.
-Of course I do.
So why am I reporting back to Daniel again all of a sudden?
-It was just a suggestion.
-Five months I've been here.
Now it's straight back to square one.
Now, you know that's not true.
-It wasn't my fault. Any of it!
-We know that.
So why am I still being punished, then?
Why can't people just...
let it go, eh?
Just leave me alone.
Look, Kevin, I know you're trying to get past this.
But Daniel's a friend as much as anything else.
-I just want to go back to how it was...
Well, you know it's not that simple.
Look, all anyone is trying to do, is help you. That's all.
Mr Kellor's lunch. Is there a vegetarian option?
Is anything wrong with that?
No, but it makes me wonder sometimes, you know.
-About people like you.
I don't know how you live with yourselves. Doing what you do.
Well, everyone's entitled to a proper defence.
-Aren't they, Sergeant...?
Only he could come up with a brief like that.
I saw his wife not long ago.
She was eight months pregnant and he's dipping his wick everywhere.
-Well, we can't charge him for that.
-You can mention it.
Can't pass the buck on that, can he?
She's fractured her hip. I told them, those tiles are death traps.
-Marion's devastated. She could be laid up for weeks.
-Does Daniel know how long he's staying?
-He's ringing tonight.
-But with the Greek health system...
-This is a disaster.
Tell me about it! I've had to schlep all the way back from Greece
at the crack of dawn on a horrible flight,
-with Izzie complaining the whole way about earache.
-Who will cover?
-Then I handed her to Lisa who hardly welcomed us with open arms.
-What are we going to do?
I thought after the holiday from hell, you'd be pleased to see me!
I was thinking about Kevin.
-So what were you doing at home on the night of the 20th?
-It's where I live.
I was drinking a bottle of wine probably.
And your wife?
She's staying at her mother's, but then, you already know that.
When's the baby due, again?
Just trying to establish a little background.
Mr Kellor's home life.
The unfortunate breakdown of which, I suspect,
may well have contributed to his recent stress and mental fatigue.
Or he could just be a cold, calculating liar
with a dubious attitude towards women.
Why else would he be spending his time in nightclubs
picking up women half his age
when his wife's about to have his first child?
I'm sorry, are we here to discuss facts or make moral judgements?
You also had an affair with Doctor Elaine Cassidy.
But then she left you
when she found out you were married. Then your wife left you, of course.
Which is all completely irrelevant.
So did Lauren dump you too? Was that it?
-And you've already admitted to these uncontrollable flashes of temper.
-On one occasion.
-And then, of course, there was Doctor Tyler.
Lauren's other lover.
I mean, maybe you found out about him.
-Maybe you heard him at the door.
-You have no way of knowing that.
That must've been really hard for you, though.
What with him being so much fitter, younger than you.
-Much more Lauren's age.
-I didn't hear anything.
Well, how could you...
if you weren't there?
It just can't be helped. I'm really sorry.
-So what do I do now?
-Maybe Heston or Jimmi would be happy to listen.
-Yeah, yeah, yeah.
-It's just for the time being.
Look, I know who my friends are, all right?
Freya's the only one who gives a toss. Amazingly.
Not that it makes any difference.
Oh, and why's that?
Because none of the patients want to see me, do they?
So thanks and all that, Julia, but...
-I'll get on to it.
-..but I just want to finish my training and get out of here.
No, Kevin, I don't want you to even think like...
For good, OK?
I wonder. Did Lauren know you were married?
Or had she just found out? Like Elaine.
Assuming she even knew him, of course.
It's what all these women see in him, that gets me. What would
some beautiful young woman
with her whole life ahead of her want with some sad, middle-aged, married man like you?
But then you're the one making this up so...
Maybe the alcohol in her bloodstream helped.
Maybe it was that wine of yours.
Was that what it was, a drunken row?
Or maybe it was the sex? After all that booze. A man your age.
No, this is just harassment! And personal invective.
No, no, this is the best that she can do.
Preying on my client's vulnerable state of mind.
Now, as I've tried to point out,
Mr Kellor has been subject to a number of extraordinary pressures
at home and at work and on this case in particular.
-And how's that?
-The horrors involved, naturally.
And the frequent mishandling of it. By you.
Which has only added to his feelings of confusion and distress.
And as such, I suggest we postpone further questioning,
pending the provision of a medical report.
How many have refused to see Kevin?
-So far, ten.
-Well, that's not so bad.
Today. Plus the other 27 this week.
Well, how many of them agreed to see other doctors?
12 did. But the rest left the practice.
Oh, this is appalling.
Plus the other 43 from the other doctors.
Good afternoon. The Mill Health Centre.
I'm sorry, we don't open till four.
No, I just need to talk to Mrs Tembe.
It's rather urgent.
So was there anything else?
You know, I bet this is exactly what the Scraper's doing now.
Working on his plea.
Bleating on about how it's his granny's fault
that he murdered all those women.
Or his traumatic birth.
Or his terrible fear of donkeys.
Because there's always something else to blame, isn't there?
I had you down as someone bigger than that.
With some self-respect.
Not some snivelling little scum like Michaels, getting the violins out.
-I'm nothing like him.
-I used to look up to you.
We all did, in a way. He was brilliant.
The best SFO in the nick.
-But as soon as the cuffs go on.
Neh-ni-neh-ni-neh! Just like that scum Michaels.
I am nothing like him.
I'd say you are exactly like Michaels, thinking it through.
picking out murder weapons you knew you could destroy,
covering your tracks, trying to make fools of us all.
All for some sick, perverted pleasure.
-It's time we took that break...
-Cos you know better than most
that it's all about power. Playing God.
-Once you'd choked the life out of that girl...
-Don't try it with me!
..you had to go back there,
thinking of her, lying there, defenceless.
You had to go back and start touching her again,
-hacking at her body...
-I didn't hack at anything!
-Don't say any more.
-You're probably right.
-You took your time. Took pride over it. You take pride in your work.
And there's Jack too, powerless.
-So you picked up the pillow and shoved it on his face.
-Tell her she's lying!
-Why? Because you could.
And don't tell me you didn't enjoy it, cos I know that you did.
You loved it! Every bit of that power!
ALARM SOUNDS Liar! Liar!
I'm very sorry.
-I am really.
But I think it's best if I move to another practice.
Do you mind if I ask you why?
Well, everyone else at the church is.
-I just asked them.
-They are wrong.
You know, there's absolutely no need.
Well, with all due respect, you would say that.
No, I'm sorry, I'll see you on Sunday.
-It's all right, don't worry.
Mrs Bright, isn't it? You're not leaving us, surely?
Well, yes, as a matter of fact, I am.
Not because of all that nonsense in the papers?
Accusing a dedicated, hardworking,
young doctor without the least shred of evidence whatsoever.
It's an absolute scandal. Wouldn't you agree?
No, no, you strike me as a fair-minded, Christian sort of lady.
Not one to rush to judgement or cast the first stone.
After all, how would you feel if it were your son? Or husband or brother?
You would stand by him. You would face that prejudice head-on
and show the world that there's still a little common decency left!
That's what you would do, Mrs Bright.
So, now, what seems to be the trouble?
I will make you both a nice cup of tea.
Why do you think I'm here?
Why? I mean, you should know, if anybody!
You've just handed them the whole thing on a plate.
I thought we were going to work together.
I thought you were going to trust me.
OK, fine. We can use this.
We can turn the whole thing back on them.
We warned them you weren't in control so they've only themselves to blame.
From here on in, it's diminished responsibility.
Pure and simple.
Just follow my lead.
And don't say one more word until I ask you.
I'm sick of playing games.
It's got worse and worse over the years.
This rage. All the time.
Day and night. And I could do whatever I liked but...
..it just took control.
She said some very cruel things.
But she was very talented at that.
I just needed her to be quiet.
All those words and that music.
Pounding thorough my head.
I couldn't make it stop. Any more than I can do now.
Then going back was just routine.
You get used to blocking these things out.
But then I panicked.
Thinking that I was going to be locked up
with all that filth.
People that I'd helped put there.
That was absolutely the worst nightmare, Lynette.
The truth is, I'd swap places with her.
But I didn't take any pleasure from it.
I didn't, Lynette.
And I don't want anyone to think that I did.
Especially my child.
did you kill Lauren Porter?
That's the trouble with the tiles when they're wet.
-If I told them once, Maureen...
-Don't mind if I do.
Well, thank you for letting us know.
Bye. And I'm sorry about...
Oh, I will see you at church on Sunday.
Think you made a friend for life there.
Thank you so much, Doctor Carmichael.
Good to have you back.
-That was another transfer request.
-One of Kevin's?
I am afraid so.
We can't go on losing patients like this.
That is just fantastic news!
-The family stuff. It worked a treat.
-It's all right.
Karen's going to be so happy. They all are.
-One thing, Hollins.
-What's that, boss?
Keep your family out of here in future.
-It's not my fault. It's not my fault.
-Hey, look out!
-Mum, what are you doing? You crazy woman!
-Have you been following me?
-Yes, I just want to ex...
-Have you seen the price of food?
-I should have known.
-It will be all inflation-linked.
-This is so unfair!
