If you go in mob-handed you'll never get the main man.
-So who's got your passport now?
-Dominica, she sent it to Liverpool.
If it does turn out to be you who sent the clip, we will prosecute.
I'd like to roll down the bank with you.
I think we might be rolling down the bank quicker than you think
if we both get the sack.
You still want us to get married, don't you?
I don't know.
ALARM BEEPS Ugh!
Turn the alarm off.
This programme contains some strong language.
Have you seen Rob?
He didn't come home last night... and there's no message.
Kate, do you think this looks a bit much?
-No, I like it.
I like the curls, it's softer.
-Hi, it's DS Armstrong...
God, it's the bloody answer machine.
Hi, Rob, it's me - where are you?
Look, can you ring me when you get this?
Where've you been?
Work - where do you think I've been?
-You could've rung.
They found another body on the rail track
between Bradford and Leeds last night.
You're still here, then?
Yeah, sorry - I will be out of your hair soon.
Jamie's looking at a flat tonight.
That's terrible that they've found another body.
Yeah - we've all the top brass up.
They think they might be linked. This could be massive.
So, was Anne-Marie there, last night?
No, she's immigration. Why would she be there?
Well, I didn't have any missed calls from you.
I think I rang from the station. I don't remember, I was that tired.
I've been awake 24 hours on the trot.
I'm going to have a drink and go to bed.
Do you want a coffee?
No, I'm going to have a proper drink.
Where did you leave this message?
On the house phone.
Check the answer machine if you don't believe me.
I don't have to, because if that's where you say you've been,
then that's where you've been.
So was it, er, a female, or...?
Yeah, but the body was so mutilated they couldn't tell how she died -
but my money's on her being dead before the train even hit her.
We found blood on the platform.
Anyway, forensics are on it.
I'm off up. I want to get a couple of hours' kip
before this sham marriage sting.
Do you have to be there?
Well, yeah, cos it's all connected.
Lara was a friend of the dead girl in the canal.
Yeah, and we saw her at Ramin's house.
Right - and she told us she went there
cos Dominica wanted to sort out her passport.
Yeah, she told us that, as well.
So, first off, what's the bride's interpreter doing there?
Is this all we've got left?
-Er, yeah, sorry, it's my fault.
-There's a carton in the cupboard.
And secondly, Lara said Dominica was helping her
apply for a three-year visa for her passport.
We know that's all bollocks.
I need my Paris trip money and my phone still isn't working.
I thought we'd finished paying for Paris?
No, they need another 30 quid.
There was no application for a new passport in Lara Resnik's name,
-cos we checked.
She's terrified she's going to be next on the slab.
And she could be.
Well, someone's lying,
and I want to know why, and what they're trying to cover up.
You don't think it could be Lara that was on the track, do you?
No, she's in the safe house. It's not going to be her.
I'll see you at the registry office if I don't see you before.
Have you got 30 quid?
We could've gone to bloody Barbados
for the money this French trip's cost.
-I don't know.
I hope it's not what I think it is.
-What, Judy? No, she wouldn't.
-Well, why not?
That's what she's been saying she's going to do, isn't it?
She sent the photos to me and she sent the footage to Rob.
You'd better check it.
Go on, quick!
-Oh, my God!
-Shit a brick, you're right.
Just delete it.
I need my ingredients for cookery.
What - what ingredients?
I told you last week, we're making brownies in school.
Flour, butter, eggs, cocoa. I can't remember what else.
-I've left my phone.
Er, do - do you know anything about Lucy's cookery ingredients?
No, why would I know?
Well, because she is your daughter...!
-Why didn't you tell us?
You just didn't listen.
I'm going to bed.
Can I look at my phone? I want to check my messages.
Ask your mother.
You can have it tonight for five minutes, OK?
Now start checking the cupboards for your brownie ingredients
and anything we don't have,
we'll get on the way to school, all right?!
-One new message. Message one.
Hi, it's me, I don't know what time I'm going to be home tonight...
He was telling the truth.
Why don't you trust him?
I don't know.
What are you going to do about the USB stick?
-# No tears for us
-No tears for us
# Think love and wear a smile
# Our dreams have magic
# Because we'll always stay
# In love this way
# Our day will come. #
I'll call in at the supermarket on the way home.
Cereal, yogurt, milk and berries.
Yeah, I know.
Hi! How are you?
Fine. And washing powder.
-Send me a text.
-If I've got time.
I'm going to that gallery opening with Wendy,
so I'll be late tonight.
I might go for a drink with the lads...
I'll see you later!
Is she all right?
Her parents are coming at the weekend,
so she's been cleaning like a maniac.
Sarah used to be like that.
Judy sent Rob a USB stick with us on it.
-Christ! Has he seen it?
-I don't know.
-What do you mean, you don't know?
-Well, what I say.
He came home and went straight to bed, he'd been at work all night.
I don't understand why you didn't just delete it.
Lucy walked in and then I heard Rob coming down the stairs
and I just, I got flustered and I-I panicked.
You could've deleted it?
Listen, you weren't there,
so don't start spouting off about what I should've done.
Well, if she sends it to Olivia, that's it.
That'd be us well and truly over. I mean, it's touch-and-go as it is.
We just argue all the time.
Everything I do is wrong.
Ever since the IVF didn't work.
Sometimes I think she's just looking for a way out.
-Hey, is there any more juice?
Oh, my God, they're already here.
Have you been to sleep?
I know we're a bit early, but I'm so excited.
I feel like a new bride all over again!
Well, it'll take more than renewing your vows to do that.
Have you actually been to bed
or did you, you know, just come straight from...?
-Course we've been to bed.
It's not alcohol in those cups, is it?
-No, no, no.
-No, it's just juice.
Because you do know that I can't perform the ceremony
-if you're drunk.
-I know - and I admit I was a bit tiddly last time,
but I want to be totally sober today,
so I can listen to the words, ooh, and remember them.
Good. See you in there, then.
Pissed as a fart, the pair of them.
Don't know why they bother.
Rob didn't act as though anything was wrong, though -
he was tired, but...
Yeah, well, not in front of you, he wouldn't.
He'll wait till we're on our own.
I don't know.
Leave... Ask me to leave.
I don't know why Judy'd do something like that -
it's not as thought she's going to gain anything from it.
I think it would be the satisfaction of knowing she has ruined my life.
He's not your life, though, is he?
I mean, you're not even married.
We have a daughter together.
It's not the end of the world.
It would be the end of Lucy's.
She's already unhappy.
Jamie, I think your wife's in the waiting area.
I had a lovely evening last night.
Some of my friends from the church choir came round
-and we had some supper and...
-Prayed for forgiveness.
I believe Rob and I both received something in the post from you.
Not from me you didn't.
Well, I just want you know that it's not going to end there.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
Photographs of me and Rick. Video footage on a USB stick.
So, we've got a really busy day today,
and the sham wedding this afternoon.
That's going to take a lot of man power.
Have we got everything prepared? Are we all ready?
Priestly Room's all sorted, chairs are all out.
Do we know how many guests are arriving?
They said anything from 20 to 30.
Well, they could just be saying that.
Er, and when are the police and immigration due to get here?
Yeah, 40 minutes before their allocated time.
I told Amir and his cousin that they needed to check in at registration
as soon as they got here for Amir's pre-marriage interview.
Do they take everybody?
Just the groom and anyone else
that they think might be involved in the scam.
Well, I can cover the desk,
and then Anna can do the Cotrell-Woodhall marriage
-and Talia can...
-No. No, no.
Er, you will be doing the same-sex wedding, Judy,
seeing as you've never officiated at one.
Talia, you can assist. Anna, you can man the desk.
Whatever. Makes no difference to me.
That leaves Jamie and me free for the wedding - and, er...
What about me?
You could be on the desk and Anna could assist.
Right, it's going to be like that, is it?
You're going to do what the PO says.
Rick, please, don't make this any more difficult than it already is.
Thanks for coming to see me.
I haven't. I've come to register the death of my mother.
Oh, my God!
Connie? That's terrible.
I didn't know she was ill. What happened?
Why didn't you tell me?
Well, I think it's pretty obvious why I didn't tell you.
I didn't want you coming round the house looking like that.
It was a heart attack, she died in her sleep.
It's... It's all just come as a bit of a shock.
-Oh, God, you must be devastated...
-Please don't touch me.
I didn't mean to...
She was a very special woman.
The boys must be really upset.
Yeah. Yeah, they are.
I have to see them.
I think they'd like to see you, too...
..but not like that.
I've got trousers on!
Women wear trousers - that's all I'm asking.
And no make-up.
Why can't you do that?
Think of them for once, and not yourself.
Sarah, I've thought about you and the boys all my life.
This is the first time I've put myself first.
-I love you.
-No, you don't!
Because if you did, you wouldn't have done this to our family.
Me mother's left me some money
and I'm thinking about moving down south.
But then I'd never get to see the boys. It's...
Not my problem.
The answer's in your own hands, James.
Long time no see.
Something I said?
It was something I said.
I'm thinking about moving down south.
Do you know what?
I can't believe you let him turn up to work looking like that.
He looks ridiculous. Why doesn't somebody say something?
There's nothing to say.
I mean, I-I know that this is really hard for you,
but I don't think he's got a choice, he...he has to do this.
No, no, he has a choice.
He can do whatever he wants,
as long as me and the boys aren't part of it.
The boys might accept it better than you think -
-I mean, it's amazing how...
-He was my husband.
The man that I married, the father to my boys.
You try explaining that to your friends, to your parents,
to your children.
How would you feel if your husband came home dressed as a woman?
Just have to register the death of my mother.
MUSIC: (You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin
Can you turn the music down a little bit, please?
You said we could have anything we chose.
No, but it's the volume.
There are people in the other rooms that are registering deaths.
Sorry! Eddie, turn the music down, babe!
So, er, are all your guests here, then?
-I think so. Babe, is everybody here?
-I think so.
What about your daughter?
Oh, yeah - she said she'd come
if she could get someone to look after t' dog.
It's gone into labour, it's having pups.
Are you all right?
How can I choose between who I really am and my boys?
I think she'll come around.
I don't think she will.
She's threatening to move away, now, I'll never see them again.
Well...you'll just have to fight her through the courts.
I had no idea she was so angry.
# You make me feel...
# Like a loverley woman! #
You've got the words wrong, you div.
-I still love you!
-Hey, is there any more juice? I'm thirsty.
So, will there be any readings today, Jean?
No, cos, er, he don't read, and I'm not very good.
You know they do literacy classes at the library, if it's...?
No, you're all right, we're not bothered.
We just want you to say the words and then we can say 'em after you.
Right. So, maybe if we can we have a little bit of hush, now, please...
Shut up, the lot of yer! Calm down.
-Maybe turn the music off.
So, some of you might remember me
from the other two renewals that Jean and Eddie have had.
My name's Kate and I'm going to be conducting the ceremony.
How many years is it you've been married for, now?
-18, off and on.
When you first joined hands and hearts 18 years ago,
you didn't know where life would take you.
Marriage is a precious gift,
a lifelong dedication to love fully and freely.
You promised to love and cherish one another through all things.
The vows you will now renew are a solemn pledge of love
and a reaffirmation of your commitment to one another.
So, please face each other and join hands.
If you could repeat after me...
18 years ago I promised to love and cherish you all the days of my life.
18 years ago I promised to love and cherish you...
-I can't remember all that!
-Course you can.
..all the days of my life.
Days of my life.
I hereby reaffirm that promise...
-I hereby firm up that promise.
In front of our family and friends.
-In front of our family and friends.
I promise to love and respect you...
I promise to love and respect you.
VOICE WAVERS: Through life's joys and sorrows...
-Through life's joys...
-Joys and tomorrows.
Be honest and faithful...
And you better be, this time, or I'll chop the bloody thing off.
Be honest and faithful to you always...
VOICE BREAKS: ..and this is my promise to...
Sorry, I think I've got something in my throat.
Are we supposed to be saying that?
No! Do you want a drink, love? Is she all right?
Is she all right?
What are we supposed to be saying?
I don't know! Shut your gob.
God, that is gin!
I don't know who put that in there.
Are you all right?
Can you finish for me? I need to go home.
-Um, he might not have seen the USB stick...
-I just need to go.
-Yeah, just go.
I'm so sorry. Jamie's going to finish the ceremony
and give you your certificate.
-Where's she goin'?
-What's up with her?
Um... We'll move on to the rings, now.
Sorry, I've gotta go somewhere.
-Are you all right?
-Not really, no.
Um... I'll talk to you later. I've gotta go.
I thought it was you.
What you doing home at this time?
I... I left Amir and Kristina's file.
I think I'm going to need it for this afternoon.
I thought you'd be still be in bed.
I got a couple of hours.
Oh... Sorry, I didn't realise anyone was here.
He... He wouldn't answer his phone, so I just came round.
I had it on silent, so, er, she came banging at the door.
I wanted to let him know that Lara's either done a runner
from the safe house, or she's been taken.
We've put out an APW and description,
so if they're trying to get her out of the country we'll pick it up.
And we've found out that Amir's cousin Ramin and his wife
pay the council tax at 17 Copperfield Road
and have done for the past three years.
So, they're knee deep in trafficking, sham marriages,
and two possible murders.
We've got the house under surveillance,
and there's a couple of people we think might turn up this afternoon
who could be accomplices.
Do you want to have a look, or do you have to get straight back?
I have to get back.
Quite a lot to get sorted out before you lot arrive.
Have you got your file?
-The one you came home for.
So, that's Frank Winston.
He's been at a couple of suspect marriages,
and he's been investigated for trafficking before.
Right - but could he be capable of murder?
In admin, getting ready for the Cotrell-Woodhall wedding - why?
Everything all right? Where've you been?
You are going to regret doing that.
Don't you dare mess with me or the people I love again
or I will tear you to fucking shreds!
I've no idea what you are talking about,
but I'm going to report you to the police - that's common assault!
-Bring it on.
-And I've got two, three eye witnesses who saw everything.
I'm sorry I weren't - I was looking at the flat online.
-I didn't see anything, either.
-Oh, of course you didn't.
Well, don't look at me. I was on me break making a cuppa.
You're a set of bloody liars.
But it doesn't matter, anyway, cos the CCTV will have caught it.
Talia, check the surveillance for the last five minutes.
-Have you got the stick?
Has he seen it?
Er... I don't... I don't know, I don't think so.
I could've had you sacked in a heartbeat
if I'd told Matthew that you were blackmailing me,
but I didn't -
and this is how you repay me.
I seriously think you need to take some time off work.
I think you were right to step down from being Super.
It's far too much for you, juggling two jobs and a family.
The CCTV wasn't turned on.
Oh, that is ridiculous!
I think somebody's been messing around with the machine,
and must've turned it off by mistake.
What a shame.
Maybe someone was playing around with a USB stick!
Well, we're going to have immigration
and a whole load of coppers all swarming around here any minute now
for the sham marriage.
So, Joanne Woodhall and Thea Cotrell's wedding's about to start
in about 40 minutes.
They've come all the way from New York for this wedding
so that Thea can get married in her home town.
So, let's make this a really special day
for these two wonderful brides.
Rick, er, could you man the desk, and...?
I think I should be at the sham marriage...
-No, you can't, because we...
-Can I just finish?
It's not about you and me working together, it's about the whole team.
We've all been across this stuff.
Right, well, we, er... we've got just under an hour
before Amir and Kristina arrive.
MUSIC: Come On, Let's Go by Ritchie Valens
Are you excited, Talia?
Yeah, I love weddings -
that's why I wanted to be a registrar.
Now, before you sign the register, you must check...
It won't just be me, though.
Just make sure you've got their names and everything right.
Cos you only get one chance at that.
I'm getting all nervous, now.
No, nothing to worry about.
So, do you think you'll get married one day?
When I'm 20 I'll marry Farooq.
Oh, it's all arranged, is it?
-My parents chose him for me.
He's from a good family -
and he's very handsome.
He's also training to be a doctor.
Ooh, very nice!
He sounds like a good catch.
Er, excuse me, could you tell Kristina
that she has to come and have her pre-wedding interview?
It should only take about five minutes.
-SHE SPEAKS IN SLOVENIAN
Oh, no, sorry, it has to be on her own.
It's the law.
But she won't understand.
And I have done this before.
Well, we have our own interpreter now.
Five minutes, tops - won't be long.
So, you understand what's happening?
And you haven't told anyone?
As far as they know, we still think you're pregnant?
So, when the police and immigration come from behind the doors,
someone will bring you back down here
and wait with you until they are all gone,
and then we're going to take you to a safe house, OK?
INTERPRETER SPEAKS IN SLOVENIAN
And then I go back home to Travnik, ja?
We'll sort it out with immigration.
Why did you come here, Kristina? Who brought you here?
Um, I came here with Filip's sister...
Oh, he was my boyfriend back in Travnik. Not any more.
And where is his sister now?
She go back - but, um... I have no passport.
They're all in place now -
-we're just waiting on Amir and his cousin.
Well, we'll take her back up before they arrive.
All right, mate.
They're coming in now.
They're on their way in.
Kristina's not back yet.
If you'd just like to come this way.
Just follow me.
MUSIC: A Certain Smile by Johnny Mathis
CONGREGATION GASP AND CHEER
Please be seated.
On behalf of West Yorkshire Registration Service
we welcome you all here today.
Could the couple please confirm your names?
This place in which we are now met has been duly sanctioned
according to law for the celebration of marriage,
and you are gathered here to witness the joining of Thea and Joanne.
If there is any person here today
who knows of any lawful impediment to that marriage,
they should declare it now.
Is she all right?
I hope so.
-SHE SPEAKS IN SLOVENIAN
-SHE SPEAKS IN SLOVENIAN
-It was OK. Ja.
Sorry about the delay, folks, we're just waiting on the groom
and, er, and his best man.
Once they get here, we'll be able to get this show on the road.
CLAMOUR OF VOICES
Thank you so much.
Would you have your photo taken with us?
Oh - if you don't mind, I've got another wedding in five minutes,
but Talia will, I'm sure.
Um, I'd love to.
Go on, tell them!
I'm sorry, but my cousin does not want to marry Kristina.
She tricked me, told me she was pregnant
and all the time she was just pretending.
SHE SHOUTS IN SLOVENIAN Leave her alone!
She wanted to marry me, but now I realise I don't love her.
-Somebody's tipped them off.
They lie! They say this, put cushion as baby belly.
Police! Don't move!
Sit back down, now!
Immigration! If you can all just stay exactly where you are.
Nobody is leaving this room!
Where are you going? Come here!
Somebody let them know. I'm sorry.
The whole thing was a fucking fiasco!
They've played us and made us look ridiculous.
-Well, these things happen.
-No, they don't just happen.
I don't think you realise how this is going to play out.
It's going to make us look like we went in mob-handed.
We'll be lucky if it doesn't end up front page of the Evening post.
I'm telling it like it is. I've got a promotion riding on this.
So, that's what this is about.
It's all right for you - you've already got yours.
Yeah, because I deserved it, I worked bloody hard for that.
-And I haven't, is that what you're saying?
-No, Rob, for God's sake!
Argh! Look, it's not all over yet.
Amir's visa runs out in a few days, so he is going to be desperate.
I don't give a shit about Amir.
What if you're wrong about this lad?
What if he's just a student whose visa's running out
and he's got nothing to do with either of the murders?
Well, I never said he was a murderer -
it was you that made that leap.
Oh, OK, so it's my fault, now?
It is nobody's fault, Rob. It's just the way it is.
Is everything else all right?
What do you mean, is everything all right?
I meant with us.
I don't know. You tell me.
Did anybody ever offer you money to marry Amir?
INTERPRETER SPEAKS IN SLOVENIAN
I have to pay back for my flight.
So how do you live?
Where does she get her money from?
Has anybody asked her if she told them about the sting?
Yeah, she said she didn't say anything.
She has no idea how they knew.
SHE SPEAKS IN SLOVENIAN
She cleans three days and two evenings per week
to pay off her debt for the flight here and they promised her £1,000
and her passport to go back home if she married Amir.
Who promised her?
Dominica say it, but I think it's Ramin and Marcia.
Amir's cousin and his wife.
OK. If they're capable of human trafficking and slavery,
maybe they're capable of anything.
They say they will hurt my family.
Not if we've got anything to do with it.
When you've finished with them, I want them
at the station for questioning about the murder of Eva Kowalski.
-And no word on Lara yet?
They're running checks on the body they found on the track.
So, how do you know Amir and Kristina?
Amir's cousin Ramin contacted me and said
he needed a Slovenian interpreter and that's as much as I know.
But you're friends with Ramin's family and his wife, aren't you?
But you were there when we returned Ramin's driving licence.
Yes, it was work. I was interpreting for another Slovenian girl.
Yes, Lara Resnik, who speaks perfect English.
Sometimes it's difficult for her to understand.
I bet it is. A bit like Kristina with all this cleaning work.
I bet it's hard for her to understand that it's nothing short of slavery.
I'm sorry, I don't...
And being promised £1,000 to marry an Iranian lad
whose visa's run out when the fixers get six grand -
that's hard to understand too.
I have no idea what you are talking about.
Because that is what's happening to Kristina, isn't it?
Why are you keeping hers and Lara's passport?
I'm not! Who told you that?
Just answer the question.
I sent Kristina's passport off, because it only had five months
left on it and I try and help sometimes with the paperwork.
But I've had nothing to do with Lara Resnik's passport.
Do you know anybody by the name of Eva Kowalski?
-She's a friend of Lara's from Slovenia.
This is a photo of her.
I have never seen her before and I don't know anybody by that name.
Well, that's odd, because you were a witness at her second marriage.
I attend at least 15 marriages a year as an interpreter
and sometimes I'm asked to be a witness.
I cannot remember them all.
I want you to think very carefully before you answer this question.
Were you at any time aware that the marriage between Kristina
and Amir was purely for Amir to gain status to stay in this country?
No. Definitely not.
I'm an interpreter and that's all.
It's none of my business what they do, right?
-Can I go home now?
I think my colleague next door wants to ask you a few questions
and then I think we'll be taking a little trip down to the station.
You should've told me about her being a witness.
I just made it up to see what her reaction would be.
-You made it up?
I can't tell whether she's lying about the passports or
whether Lara's lying.
Look, I've gotta go and help on the desks. I'll see you back at home.
-Why don't we go out so we can talk properly?
You know what. There's things we need to discuss.
I'll text you when I'm done.
I'm Kate Dickenson.
I'm Bridget Featherstone.
And you're here to...
..register the death of your husband.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
If you want me to stop at any point or go somewhere else,
-you just let me know, OK?
Adrian died four days ago?
My son offered to come, but I...I couldn't let him.
He's only 17 and it's been really hard on him,
cos Adrian was driving to the airport to pick him up.
He'd been to Ibiza with a couple of his mates and...
and we really didn't want him to go, but...
-Are you all right?
-Yeah, I'm fine.
Sorry, you don't want to know all the ins and outs of...
Hey, I'm not here just to register a death.
I'm here to listen and to help in any way that I can.
I keep thinking that he's in the house.
I keep shouting upstairs, cos I can hear him moving about.
I felt like such a fool.
I think when... someone dies suddenly,
it's really difficult for the brain to...
process the loss.
Every morning when I wake up I, erm,
expect to see him at the side of me.
And then I realise that he's never going to be there again.
And my stomach just sinks.
It must be really difficult.
It's not as if we were this lovey-dovey couple, I mean, we...
We had loads of rows.
I just can't imagine my life without him
and I can't stop thinking that
I should've told him that I loved him.
I can't remember the last time I told him that.
If I could just have one more day with him...
and then I could tell him.
I'm so sorry, will you excuse me just...?
I'm in the middle of something.
Sorry, it's just, I'm not sure what to do.
I'm registering a sudden death and she's upset. What is it?
This couple - they want to book in for their notice of marriage,
but he's not sure if he got married in Vegas when he was 18.
Somebody spiked his drink and he was completely out of it,
but he's got a vague recollection of a girl and an Elvis Presley vicar.
Well...take his name and his number
and anything else you can think of, and we'll see what we can do.
Do you want to go for a drink after work?
I'm supposed to be seeing Rob...
to talk about us.
-You and me?
-No! Me and him.
I think you need to work out what you're going to say to him and we need to have a plan.
I'd better go.
So sorry about that.
Do you think you're OK to continue?
Yeah, I've got to do it, so best get on with it.
It's really strange.
I always thought he'd be here and we'd grow old together.
I just didn't realise what a wonderful man I had
until he'd been taken from me.
-Oh! Day from hell.
-Yep, it's been pretty mental.
I've had five births and two deaths and one of them
-was a stillborn, so it was a bit tricky.
-Oh, I'm sorry.
Listen, thanks for the Judy thing this morning.
What Judy thing? I was making a cup of tea.
-It was a belter! She had a red cheek for hours after.
I know! I know, don't.
It was so unprofessional of me.
Ah, she deserved it.
So, er, Rick is dealing with a couple who want to book in
for a notice of marriage and the bridegroom-to-be doesn't know
whether he got married in Vegas or not,
so can we check with the GRO?
So I've been thinking, this solicitor, he wants to charge
nearly £200 to change my name from James to Jamie.
-And he said it might be more, depends what work's involved.
What for, dropping an S and adding an I?
That is daylight bloody robbery.
-Why can't we do that here?
-That's what I thought.
I thought maybe we could offer it as one of our new services,
charge something like 50 quid, add the change
of name to the original birth certificate like we usually do.
Only we get the 50 quid instead of the solicitor and the client
ends up paying a whole lot less, so everybody's happy. Great idea.
-I'll speak to Matthew about it.
I've spotted a mistake.
-Not in the register?
-Yeah, I'm afraid so and it's my fault.
I've written Woodall, without the H, and I was just
filing their Notice of Marriage and I noticed it's Woodhall with an H.
Right, well, didn't you or Judy ask them to check it?
-I did, but they can't have been concentrating, they were waving at people.
-Let me see.
-Only you have signed this.
-Yeah, and I did the certificate too.
Where was Judy?
She said she'd sign it later, she had somewhere to go.
Why, what did she have to do?
I don't know, she said she had a wedding.
Well, the only other wedding was the sham marriage
and she was nowhere near that.
Where is she now?
Baby naming in the Priestly.
I think I've caused a big problem.
It's not you, love.
I think Emily Beth is a very lucky girl
to have such loving parents and grandparents
and it sounds as though Josh and Lydia are going to be
wonderful godparents as well. Although strictly speaking,
we shouldn't really call you godparents, as this is a non-religious ceremony.
But I can tell that you have real affection for Emily Beth
and if she strays from the path of goodness,
that you will help to steer her back on course.
And here is your certificate to commemorate this very special
-Thank you very much.
-Can I have a quick word?
-Yes, of course.
As long as you're not going to slap me across the face.
That was a very nice service.
And lovely that you personally signed
and handed the parents their certificate.
Unlike Joanne Woodhall and Thea Cotrell's wedding, which I gather
you left Talia to finish the certificates on her own,
and didn't even bother to stay to sign the register.
She was desperate to do it and there comes a time
when you have to let them sink or swim.
Of course I officiated at the actual ceremony.
But didn't put your name to it.
Oh, for heaven's sake. Are you going to make an issue out of that now?
I will sign the book this afternoon.
Well, you may like to know that Talia made a mistake in the register.
She forgot to put the H in Woodhall,
so now we're going to have to do a formal correction
and that is going to involve Thea
and Joanne flying back to England after their honeymoon,
and they may very well claim costs.
Don't think that's going to go down very well with the GRO, do you?
But what really concerns me is the fact that you left Talia,
a junior, inexperienced registrar, to deal with the witnessing
and the signing of the register on her own.
One minute you're physically assaulting me
and the next minute you're accusing me of homophobia.
-I cannot work in this hostile environment.
I'm not going to leave because I've done nothing wrong. Unlike you.
I am perfectly justified in exercising my beliefs
on marriage. Freedom of religion is my qualified right.
No, it's not! You can't just opt out
of performing same-sex marriage, Judy, and you know that!
That's why you've been covering it up.
Well, take this as an official warning.
I will be notifying the GRO.
Oh, yeah, and while we're on the subject of your strong religious
and moral beliefs, is blackmailing part of your Christian duty too?
LAUGHTER AND CHATTER
I knew she had a problem with it.
Talia said she wouldn't even have her photograph taken with them
and she only did the basic ceremony, nothing extra.
What are you going to do?
Report her. She can't do that even if she is a practising Christian.
Thea and Joanne should've been treated exactly
the same as any other couple getting married. It was their special day.
Here we go. Fresh supplies.
Er, you, you didn't want another one, did you?
No, thanks, I'm driving.
-Oh, I'm going to have this and I'm going to shoot off. I'm meeting my brother.
Yeah, I've gotta go see another flat tonight. I hope it's better than the last one.
So, what are you going to do about Sarah?
Well, she won't let me see the boys unless I dress as a man,
so...I'm going to do that.
-Aren't you just giving in to her?
Look, they're just clothes, aren't they, at the end of the day?
And if I get to see my boys, then I don't really care any more.
I know what I am.
Hiya, Mrs Registrar! Are you all right now?
Yeah, I'm so sorry about earlier.
Did you have a panic attack, love?
-I used to have them, didn't I?
But it's all right, cos she did a brilliant job instead of you.
In fact, Janey were better than you, even though she looks like a fella.
Hey, do you want to come and sit with us?
-Oh, no, no...
Oh, you're a bloody misery. It's all work and no play with you lot.
Hey, listen, you know your daughter's dog?
Have you got homes for all the puppies?
I don't know. I'll ask her. Hey, do you want one?
-Er...maybe, maybe. I don't know.
-Jean, your drink's here.
Hey, come on. Get over there, they're waiting for us.
What, you're going to get a dog?
Oh, I don't know. Lucy's been going on and on about a dog for ever.
I was always bringing animals home when I were a kid
and me mum always ended up looking after 'em.
Well, I'm going to have to do something for her.
She just...seems so lonely.
Oh, get her the dog. Right, I'm off before she comes back.
I'll see you later, Kate.
Yeah. Er, listen, I don't know what time I'm going to be back.
I'm supposed to be meeting Rob later, so...
Oh, that's all right, I don't know what I'm doing either, but I'll just see you when I see you.
Do you think we could've got Amir wrong?
No, your instincts are usually right and the fake pregnancy...
But why couldn't we just have nailed it? Then we could've got to
-who's at the root of it all.
-We'll never do that.
They're professionals, they cover their tracks too well.
It's not up to us anyway, it's police and Home Office stuff.
Yeah, I suppose we just do what we can.
Here, I'm not being funny, but when I showed them round,
they seemed like really nice people.
Yeah, well, that's all part of their act - to seduce you
into believing that they're legit.
They coerce these young women into getting married
and sometimes they have to live with the man for three months.
-Sometimes they even have to have sex with them.
No, I mean, not if you fancy them.
Oh, for God's sake, Rick! How likely is that?
Well, some of these men are 20, 30 years older than the women
and they don't all look like Amir.
And they've fished a Slovenian woman's body out of the canal
and we know that she'd had multiple marriages. They'd used her,
she'd served her purpose and they just got rid.
I was just making a joke.
He wants to meet at the Hadfield Hotel.
I'm going to have to go.
Well, you can't drive. You've had two gin and tonics.
I'll, I'll...see you later.
Kate, where you going?
Look, I'll ring a cab.
I can drive.
You can't, you're over the limit and you'll lose your licence.
Them gins, they were doubles.
All right, well, I'll ring a cab.
-What've I done wrong?
I said the wrong thing. I'm, I'm sorry.
It's not that. Sorry, I'm just completely stressed.
I've no idea what's going to greet me when I get there.
-You don't have to go.
-Of course I do.
I've lived with Rob for 14 years,
we've got a life together.
A house and a home and a family
and he's just seen footage of me shagging you.
That's why I wanted us to talk, but then you invited Jamie and Anna along.
Well, what is there to talk about, Rick? There's nothing to say.
Kate, I want you to know that I'll be there for you if you split up.
Hi, could I get a cab, please? Outside the Town Hall.
..at least it's all out in the open now, eh?
No more secrets.
I mean it, I'll leave Olivia and everything,
and we can find a place to live and we can start again.
Right. Me and the two kids?
Yeah, if they want to come.
And what if they want to live with their dad?
And that's cool too.
And what about me?
I would be separated from my children.
God, Rick, it's not straightforward!
God, sometimes you're so naive,
you have no idea what it's like to have a, a son or a daughter.
Actually I do. I...
You know that lass that turned up to register her dad's death, Elle?
Turns out she's my daughter.
You shagged her mother?
I was a first year at uni
and we got paid 30 quid a pop at this fertility clinic
if we donated our sperm. A-a bunch of us did it.
-And she found you?
That's why I've been helping her.
I've seen her a couple of times and she's a really nice kid.
I can't believe she come from me, but she does.
It's really weird, she looks like my sister.
I'm sorry, I...
-I got it wrong. I thought that...
I know what you thought and...
I just got used to the idea of not having any kids and then...
And then this.
Oh, God. It's stupid.
No, it's not.
Why didn't you tell me?
Oh, I don't know, I haven't told anyone.
Not even Olivia?
Definitely not Olivia.
If she knew I had a daughter that would be it,
she'd think it was her fault she didn't get pregnant.
You care for her.
I care for you more.
-What if he hits you?
-Oh, he's not going to hit me.
That's why he arranged to meet in a public place,
so that he knows he can't lose it in front of people.
I know him well.
I expect he'll be very cool and...
ask me why I did it
and then he'll tell me it's over.
And then what?
And then I'll fall apart.
Now...how come we ended up in the strong room together, eh?
How come I've got these feelings from you?
I'm not imagining it, Kate.
I do find you attractive.
And warm and funny...
..and in a different life...
..I would want to be with you.
We don't have a different life. This is it.
And you wouldn't feel like this for me if you loved him.
I'll ring you.
-I'm coming with you.
-No, you're not.
No, don't. Get... Get out of the cab.
-Get out of the cab, Rick.
-You're not coming with me.
Where are we going, love?
Er, Hadfield Hotel.
OK. You know you are completely crazy, don't you?
I'm crazy for you.
We'll look back at this one day and we'll laugh.
I don't think so.
It's not funny.
Right. Erm, I'm going to go through to the bar.
I'm just going to sit and wait over there.
I don't know what for.
JAZZ MUSIC PLAYS
Hey. Sorry I'm a bit late. I had to wait for a taxi, cos we...
we all went out for a quick drink after work.
Everything all right?
Depends what you mean by all right.
-They found Lara at Manchester Airport.
And she had her passport on her, so...
So she was lying to us.
-Looks like it.
No idea. I expect we'll find out.
Anyway, she's with immigration now,
so there's nothing I can do till morning.
Erm, what about the woman on the rail track?
Life's shit sometimes.
I want you to look at something on my phone.
What is it?
And I want you to be honest with me, Kate. No bullshitting.
This isn't going to go away, so we have to deal with it.
I know what I think about it, but I want to know what you have to say.
He's three years old and his owner's just lost his wife
and can't seem to cope.
I know it's a huge commitment, but I think Lucy would love him
and I'm prepared to do my bit - you know, walk him,
pick up his shit, if you say, yeah?
What are you crying for?
It's just... He's so cute.
Is that a yes, then?
Great. Well, I thought we'd surprise Lucy,
-not tell her where we're going, just go and pick him up.
And I'm sorry about earlier.
You know...I was a shit.
I thought I'd got it nailed and I hadn't and I was disappointed.
Yeah, I know. Me too.
You know what? If I don't get DI, I don't get it.
Oh, you will.
You're a great detective.
So I've got us a table booked for ten minutes ago.
-Shall we head through and get you a drink in the restaurant?
I thought you'd throw a fit about the dog,
cos it's more work for us both.
But she's desperate
and we can sort it out between us.
Yeah. We'll muddle through like we always do.
Olivia, what are you doing?
-Where is she? Where's Kate?
-I don't know what you're talking about.
Really? Do you think I'm that stupid?
Is she, is she checking the room out?
I've got no idea what you're on about.
-Oh, Olivia, look, it's not what you think.
-Don't you lie to me!
-I've had someone following you for the past two weeks.
-Why, what the hell for?
-Which one is it, Rick? Your boss or the blonde bimbo?
Did you send these photos to Kate?
-Or are you shagging them both?
-I'm not going to answer that.
This is all your clothes and if you let me know where you're staying,
-I'll get the rest of your stuff sent on.
Oh, fucking hell!
What's going on?
Oh, I think I've been a bit remiss in the romantic department of late
and I'd just like to put things right.
Well, that's nice.
I think I've known that I loved you ever since I pulled you over
-in your clapped-out red Mini on Stonegate Road.
And you thought I was going to do you for speeding, so you yelled at me.
Yes, I remember, I think I called you a macho bastard.
And the rest.
And then I told you that I'd only stopped you,
cos the belt of your coat was trailing out of your car door onto the road.
It was a good coat, that - cost me an arm and a leg, that coat.
No, Rob, don't. Please, get up.
Get... People are... People are looking.
It would make me very happy...
..if after 14 years of living in sin...
you'd do me the honour of becoming my wife.
I don't know what to say.
Well, don't say I never proposed to you...
This could help us catch the person who's at the root of all this.
-Where is she? Where's Marcia?
-It's nothing short of persecution.
Was it you that went to the press?
It was just a shag. It meant nothing.
She's having second thoughts.
How do I know that he's the right one for me?
Who are you texting, Kate?
Kate is horrified to discover Judy has sent Rob a USB stick of the footage, but has he seen it? Meanwhile, the registrars prepare for the raid on Kristina and Amir's wedding.
