There's going to be more You're being paranoid.

:01:16.:01:26.

Just because we're paranoid, doesn't- This is not about football,

:01:26.:01:30.

have to make further substantial savings.

:01:30.:01:33.

They mean cuts. I think efficiencies is the favoured term of the moment.

:01:33.:01:36.

Nothing to do with us.

:01:36.:01:38.

Gerry and Brian seem to think that UCOS is in the firing line. I doubt it.

:01:38.:01:41.

Well, it is possible. Oh, anything's possible, Gerry.

:01:42.:01:44.

There should be a call for direct action, the withdrawal of labour. Police officers can't strike, Brian.

:01:44.:01:49.

Well, we're not officially police officers.

:01:49.:01:52.

Exactly. We've got to decide what to do. I've got an idea.

:01:52.:01:55.

What's that?

:01:55.:01:57.

Why don't we stop worrying about things that might never happen and just get on with our job?

:01:57.:02:01.

March 5th, 2004, 6.10pm

:02:25.:02:29.

A body was found in a west London alleyway.

:02:29.:02:31.

The death was caused by a blunt force trauma

:02:31.:02:33.

to the head, consistent with a fight and a fall.

:02:33.:02:36.

The victim was a white male,

:02:37.:02:39.

aged between 20 to 30 years.

:02:39.:02:41.

And that's pretty much as far as they got.

:02:41.:02:44.

Am I boring you, Brian?

:02:44.:02:45.

Sorry, no, not at all, I'm just a bit tired.

:02:45.:02:49.

No ID, no wallet.

:02:49.:02:51.

That sounds like a robbery to me.

:02:51.:02:53.

Yeah, except he was still wearing a fairly expensive watch.

:02:53.:02:56.

They checked missing persons?

:02:56.:02:58.

They couldn't find a match and no-one came forward to identify- the victim.

:02:58.:03:02.

However, more recently it's featured as one of 70 or so

:03:02.:03:05.

cases on a website called "Not ever..."

:03:05.:03:08.

Not ever forgotten? Yes. Do you know it?

:03:08.:03:10.

Yeah, it's part of a global network.

:03:10.:03:12.

They harness the power of the internet to help solve

:03:12.:03:15.

unexplained disappearances, unsolved cases.

:03:15.:03:17.

That's all you need, a bunch of amateurs playing detective.

:03:17.:03:20.

So what exactly did we get from this website?

:03:20.:03:24.

According to one of its users, our victim is called Christopher Collins.

:03:24.:03:27.

So, if they're right, we've got a name.

:03:28.:03:33.

I love true crime, I always take a pile of books on holiday with me.

:03:33.:03:39.

It's fascinating what people do but horrible as well.

:03:39.:03:42.

Well, we know what people do. Yes, of course, you must see some things.

:03:43.:03:48.

How long did Collins work here, Mrs Carlisle?

:03:48.:03:51.

Lisa, please.

:03:51.:03:53.

About six months.

:03:53.:03:54.

The exact dates are down there.

:03:54.:03:56.

The last day we saw him was the March 5th.

:03:57.:04:00.

That was the day he died. And what exactly did he do here?

:04:00.:04:03.

He was a mechanic, I didn't see much of him.

:04:03.:04:06.

I work in the office, I don't spend- much time in the garage.

:04:06.:04:09.

Too much testosterone?

:04:09.:04:11.

Yes, and the calendars on every wall.

:04:11.:04:15.

Is there anybody who would have known him better than you? You should speak to my husband.

:04:15.:04:19.

John owns this place. Ah... Do you want to come with me?

:04:19.:04:25.

John.

:04:25.:04:29.

Certainly knew his way around an engine, I do remember that.

:04:29.:04:32.

So you must have been sad to see him- go then.

:04:32.:04:35.

A mechanic has a transferable skill, they can usually find work if they want to move on.

:04:35.:04:39.

And did Collins ever give any indication that he was going to move on?

:04:39.:04:42.

I don't think so.

:04:42.:04:44.

Did he ever mention if he had any problems or he was worried about anything?

:04:44.:04:47.

I don't mean to sound harsh but I run a business here, not a counselling service.

:04:47.:04:53.

What about before he came here, have you any idea where he lived or where he worked?

:04:53.:04:57.

I really can't tell you.

:04:57.:04:59.

You didn't ask for references?

:04:59.:05:01.

I asked him to strip a gear box down and then put it back together again.

:05:01.:05:05.

That's all I needed to know. Fair enough.

:05:06.:05:08.

The problem is we need to find a member of his family

:05:08.:05:11.

so at least they can claim the body.

:05:11.:05:13.

What happened to his body?

:05:13.:05:15.

Victims who aren't identified simply end up in a local unmarked grave.

:05:15.:05:18.

So anything else you can tell us would be helpful.

:05:18.:05:21.

Well, you ought to talk to one of our mechanics, Jason.

:05:21.:05:25.

Jason Hibbert. He was here when Collins was so he probably knew him best.

:05:25.:05:29.

Where can we find him?

:05:29.:05:31.

Well, he's, er, he's picking up an S class in Maidenhead at the moment.

:05:31.:05:35.

Be back this afternoon.

:05:35.:05:37.

Who found the body?

:05:37.:05:42.

Brian?

:05:42.:05:43.

Yeah?

:05:43.:05:45.

Who found the body?

:05:45.:05:46.

Oh, yeah, yeah, sorry.

:05:46.:05:49.

Er, an Alice West.

:05:49.:05:51.

She worked at a hotel called the Maybrooke...

:05:51.:05:54.

HE YAWNS

:05:54.:05:56.

.. That backed on to the alley where he was found.

:05:56.:05:58.

What is it, Brian, too many late nights?

:05:59.:06:01.

I'm just not sleeping properly, it's driving me mad.

:06:01.:06:05.

And Esther.

:06:05.:06:07.

I keep moving around and waking her up.

:06:07.:06:09.

Take a pill?

:06:09.:06:11.

No, I'm not taking any more drugs, I need to stay sharp.

:06:11.:06:15.

Anyway, you never know what the side effects might be.

:06:15.:06:18.

I usually find that a glass of hot milk works for me,

:06:18.:06:20.

but you need to put a little honey in it.

:06:20.:06:23.

Or a handful of sesame and sunflower seeds. That always helps.

:06:23.:06:26.

Any more suggestions?

:06:26.:06:29.

Warm clothes.

:06:29.:06:30.

See, what does that even mean?

:06:31.:06:33.

Straight out of the tumble dryer.

:06:33.:06:35.

Or you can bung a few things in themicrowave for a couple of minutes.

:06:35.:06:38.

And what do you do with the warm clothes?

:06:38.:06:40.

Just put them all over you, sort of snuggle up.

:06:40.:06:46.

Well, I don't know why but it seems to work for me.

:06:46.:06:49.

Now we've dealt with Brian's insomnia can we move on?

:06:49.:06:53.

Well, we know Collins wasn't staying at the hotel, the original team checked that.

:06:53.:06:57.

We've got a list of the guests here- and his name's definitely not on it.

:06:57.:07:02.

Did Alice West see anybody else at the scene of the crime?

:07:02.:07:04.

No, but she saw a car parked in the alley.

:07:04.:07:06.

He was still breathing so she went in to phone for an ambulance.

:07:06.:07:09.

When she came back again, car was gone.

:07:09.:07:12.

She didn't get a good look at the driver and even her description

:07:12.:07:15.

of the vehicle was vague, so not good enough to trace it.

:07:15.:07:18.

And nobody else came forward with any information.

:07:18.:07:22.

Why don't you and Brian go to the hotel and see

:07:22.:07:24.

if this Alice West's still working there?

:07:24.:07:30.

Alice.

:07:31.:07:34.

I only went outside to have a quick fag. I don't do that any more, I've given up now.

:07:34.:07:38.

Good for you.

:07:38.:07:40.

Wish it wasn't me who found him.

:07:40.:07:42.

I weren't even on a break, I was waiting for a guy in the restaurant

:07:43.:07:46.

to leave his table so I could reset it, kept ordering more coffee.

:07:46.:07:49.

He was sat over there. He must have had five cups.

:07:49.:07:52.

I just thought I'd have a couple of puffs, get back but I didn't

:07:52.:07:56.

even get to light it because

:07:56.:07:58.

as soon as I got outside that's when I saw...

:07:58.:08:01.

Mr Collins.

:08:01.:08:03.

I didn't know that were his name, not until you just told me.

:08:03.:08:06.

I knew he were hurt though.

:08:06.:08:08.

He had blood coming from his nose and he were making this noise,

:08:08.:08:12.

a horrible noise, like a wounded animal.

:08:12.:08:16.

So I ran inside, told Maureen, to call an ambulance

:08:16.:08:19.

and then I went back outside again.

:08:19.:08:21.

I were only gone a minute but...

:08:21.:08:24.

He weren't making any noise any more,

:08:24.:08:27.

just lying there.

:08:27.:08:29.

Perhaps you could show us where exactly.

:08:29.:08:32.

It's just this way. Sorry about the bags.

:08:32.:08:42.
:08:42.:08:45.

He was over here, lying on his back,

:08:45.:08:49.

his head sort of twisted you know, looking over in this direction.

:08:49.:08:53.

I could see right into his eyes,

:08:53.:08:56.

as if he was pleading, help me, help me, it were...

:08:57.:09:00.

It was...

:09:00.:09:02.

I really don't want to think about it.

:09:02.:09:04.

What about the car you saw?

:09:04.:09:06.

That was parked up against the wall,- by the end there.

:09:06.:09:11.

And you were stood there? Yeah.

:09:11.:09:13.

And you say you didn't get a good look at the driver? No, at least maybe...

:09:13.:09:16.

I don't know.

:09:16.:09:18.

I know I don't remember what they looked like though.

:09:18.:09:22.

OK. Let's get back to the car. You told the first detectives it was probably blue.

:09:22.:09:26.

Dark blue or maybe black.

:09:26.:09:28.

Like I said at the time, it could have been an estate

:09:28.:09:32.

or one of those off road thingy's.I don't really know much about cars.

:09:32.:09:36.

The truth is I weren't reallylooking at the car or who was in it.

:09:36.:09:40.

I were looking at him.

:09:40.:09:48.

Jason.

:09:48.:09:50.

Jason!

:09:50.:09:54.

Detective Superintendent Pullman and Gerry Standing.

:09:54.:09:58.

I'll leave you to it, OK?

:09:58.:10:01.

That's fine. Thank you. Thank you.

:10:01.:10:04.

We'd like to talk to you about Christopher Collins.

:10:04.:10:06.

Yeah, John explained. I suppose you know about my record.

:10:06.:10:09.

Yeah, one conviction for assault.

:10:09.:10:12.

15 years ago. And the boss knows about it too. No, that's not what we're here to talk about.

:10:12.:10:17.

But he said that you knew Collins best.

:10:17.:10:20.

I suppose that's true, I wouldn't say we were that close though.

:10:20.:10:23.

What about outside of work?

:10:23.:10:27.

We had the odd drink, I went to his flat a few times.

:10:27.:10:30.

Sounds like you saw a lot of each other.

:10:30.:10:32.

Off and on really.

:10:32.:10:33.

The problem was I was married and he definitely wasn't, if you know what I mean.

:10:33.:10:37.

What, he was gay? Far from it.

:10:37.:10:40.

Oh, he liked the ladies?

:10:40.:10:41.

And they liked him too. He looked the part and he was a nice guy.

:10:41.:10:45.

Anyone in particular? No, I don't think so.

:10:45.:10:48.

I think that was the point really. Did he live with anyone?

:10:48.:10:52.

No, all on his own in a council place.

:10:52.:10:54.

Nice though. Three bedrooms, balcony.

:10:54.:10:57.

What about at work, did you notice him having any problems?

:10:57.:11:00.

No, nothing like that. The boss is a decent guy and everyone just gets- on with the job.

:11:00.:11:04.

Yeah, but what about when he disappeared,

:11:04.:11:07.

didn't you think it was odd that he just dropped out of sight?

:11:07.:11:10.

I suppose I should have at the time- but I didn't really...

:11:10.:11:14.

He gave me the impression he had other things going on.

:11:14.:11:17.

What sort of other things?

:11:17.:11:19.

He never said, and I never pushed him.

:11:19.:11:22.

When he left I just figured that whatever it was had come in.

:11:22.:11:25.

Something back in Basingstoke probably.

:11:25.:11:27.

Why Basingstoke?

:11:27.:11:29.

That's where he came from, at least- I think that's what he told me.

:11:29.:11:33.

Of course, if there's anything else- we can do...

:11:33.:11:36.

John, I've got Mark Tanner on the phone.

:11:36.:11:39.

I'm sorry, I've got to take this. Thanks for all your help, Mr Carlisle.

:11:39.:11:42.

Well, I've got three ex wives, I can't imagine working with any of them.

:11:42.:11:46.

Maybe that's where you went wrong, Gerry. Yeah, maybe.

:11:46.:11:50.

So Collins worked here for six months

:11:50.:11:52.

and nobody seems to know anything about him.

:11:52.:11:54.

We do know one thing though, we know he was lucky.

:11:55.:11:57.

How do you work that out?

:11:57.:11:59.

How else does a single man get a three bedroom council flat?

:11:59.:12:04.

Yeah.

:12:04.:12:08.

I can't find any trace of Collins in Basingstoke. Me neither.

:12:08.:12:12.

Not where he worked, where he lived.- Nothing.

:12:12.:12:15.

What about bank details? His wages were paid into a local branch in Slough.

:12:15.:12:19.

The account was only opened six months before he died.

:12:19.:12:22.

About the same time he started at the garage? Looks like it.

:12:23.:12:25.

It's like he just appeared one day out of nowhere.

:12:25.:12:29.

Sounds like he's hiding from somebody.

:12:29.:12:31.

Except then you throw in the three bedroom council flat,

:12:31.:12:35.

which he couldn't have got without help.

:12:35.:12:37.

It sounds more like somebody was hiding him.

:12:37.:12:42.

I'll make some calls in the morning- to confirm it.

:12:42.:12:46.

What would you do if they do close us down?

:12:46.:12:49.

They've got to make cuts somewhere.- They might treat us as an easy target.

:12:49.:12:52.

With our track record. They wouldn't dare.

:12:52.:12:55.

It doesn't matter to me but you might find yourself in a very awkward situation.

:12:55.:12:59.

What would you do? I haven't thought about it, Jack.

:12:59.:13:02.

It's about time you did.

:13:02.:13:03.

They could shove you into the nearest vacancy.

:13:03.:13:06.

You could end up anywhere. Talk to Strickland.

:13:06.:13:09.

Put a few feelers out.

:13:09.:13:10.

See if there's anything you haven't been told.

:13:11.:13:13.

OK.

:13:13.:13:17.

Oh, I'm sure there's nothing in it.- They'd tell you all if there was.

:13:18.:13:22.

Oh, don't be naive, we'd be the last people to find out.

:13:22.:13:27.

Well, worrying about UCOS isn't going to help you with getting to sleep.

:13:27.:13:32.

I wish you'd at least consider my suggestion.

:13:32.:13:35.

I have considered it.

:13:35.:13:36.

Mary Blyth hasn't had a single cigarette since she finished

:13:36.:13:39.

her course with him, he comes very highly recommended.

:13:39.:13:42.

Go on, he's a quack.

:13:42.:13:45.

This guy does not do a stage show.

:13:45.:13:50.

He's a highly qualified therapist.

:13:50.:13:53.

I bet he sells snake oil at weekends

:13:53.:13:55.

Well, we've got to do something. We can't go on like this.

:13:55.:13:58.

Yeah, I'm working on it.

:13:58.:14:01.

You've already tried the hot milk.

:14:01.:14:04.

No, the honey's the important bit.

:14:04.:14:07.

The natural sugars stimulate serotonin and induce a calm and peaceful state.

:14:07.:14:14.

Are you thinking about feeding the birds as well?

:14:14.:14:16.

These are sesame and sunflower seeds

:14:16.:14:20.

They're both excellent sources of magnesium which has proved to

:14:20.:14:24.

be a muscle relaxant.

:14:25.:14:27.

And you're calling him a quack.

:14:27.:14:33.

Eeww.

:14:33.:14:43.
:14:43.:14:43.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 66 seconds

:14:43.:15:49.

What are you do...

:15:49.:15:52.

What on earth are you doing?

:15:52.:15:56.

Oh, It was Gerry's idea.

:15:56.:15:58.

Yes. Of course it was.

:15:58.:16:01.

I'm making you an appointment.

:16:01.:16:11.
:16:11.:16:15.

Morning.

:16:15.:16:18.

Who the hell is Thomas Barton?

:16:18.:16:20.

The real name of our victim. We were right, he was being hidden.

:16:20.:16:24.

He was in the witness protection program. Uh!

:16:24.:16:27.

And nobody noticed he'd gone missing?

:16:27.:16:29.

Apparently not. Who was he giving evidence against?

:16:29.:16:32.

A gang of six, led by Derek Robinson

:16:32.:16:35.

Robinson?

:16:36.:16:37.

Smiley Robinson.

:16:37.:16:39.

Was that 2003... He got a 25 year stretch for drug smuggling.

:16:39.:16:45.

Yeah, it took a nine month sting to even put him

:16:45.:16:47.

in the same place as the coke.

:16:47.:16:49.

He had a team at Felixstowe docks to get stuff through customs.

:16:49.:16:53.

And that's where Barton he worked as the mechanic down there, servicing the machinery.

:16:53.:16:57.

And was he in Robinson's operation?

:16:57.:17:00.

Well, not according to the report.

:17:00.:17:02.

He was just an ordinary guy who decided to do the right thing.

:17:02.:17:05.

And look where that got him.

:17:05.:17:07.

As I made clear on the phone, this all happened well before my time here.

:17:07.:17:10.

The witness protection unit is now a well oiled machine.

:17:10.:17:13.

We understand you didn't have any contact with Barton.

:17:13.:17:16.

We'd like to speak to his handler.

:17:16.:17:18.

That's not possible, I'm afraid. Barton was dealt with by a DS called Andrew Hughes

:17:18.:17:22.

but Hughes no longer works for us.

:17:22.:17:23.

So what can you tell us then?

:17:23.:17:25.

Whatever's in his file.

:17:25.:17:26.

Just tell me where you'd like to start.

:17:26.:17:29.

As a protected witness, Barton should have been flagged. I agree...

:17:29.:17:32.

If the investigation had known his identity they might have made progress.

:17:32.:17:36.

I can appreciate... So why wasn't he flagged?

:17:36.:17:39.

I'm sure you can understand anything connected with this office is a delicate matter.

:17:39.:17:43.

It's a murder investigation, DI Hornby.

:17:43.:17:46.

Delicate doesn't come in to it.

:17:46.:17:49.

From what I can gather, there was a period in late 2003

:17:49.:17:52.

when concerns were raised about information integrity.

:17:52.:17:55.

Information integrity? What the hell is that?

:17:55.:17:58.

I think he's trying to tell us that they had a leak. Uh.

:17:58.:18:02.

HE CACKLES

:18:02.:18:03.

What?

:18:03.:18:06.

Well, according to this,the jury had to be sent out of court

:18:06.:18:11.

because Robinson started singing in the dock.

:18:11.:18:15.

Singing? Yeah, while Barton was giving evidence against him,

:18:15.:18:19.

Robinson burst in to a well known Vera Lynn classic.

:18:19.:18:22.

Don't tell me. We'll Meet Again? Yeah.

:18:22.:18:26.

It's all right, Gerry. I get the picture.

:18:26.:18:30.

Things have tightened up considerably since then.

:18:30.:18:33.

A horse and a stable door... What made the department think there was a leak?

:18:33.:18:37.

To my predecessor's shame the identities of witnesses

:18:37.:18:40.

from various cases were compromised.

:18:40.:18:42.

Sounds more probable than possible to me.

:18:42.:18:45.

These people are meant to be protected.

:18:45.:18:47.

They risk their lives by giving evidence

:18:47.:18:50.

and then you don't even notice when one of them disappears!

:18:50.:18:53.

Barton slipped through a crack - it's regrettable but I wasn't personally involved.

:18:53.:18:57.

Yes, you've made that crystal clear.

:18:57.:18:59.

I do know however that there was a full investigation and nothing was ever proven.

:18:59.:19:03.

So how far did this investigation get?

:19:03.:19:06.

Each member of our staff was assessed, our systems were overhauled,

:19:06.:19:10.

every facet of our operation was dissected.

:19:10.:19:13.

I can assure you that it was a very thorough job.

:19:13.:19:17.

He wouldn't know a thorough job if it bit him on the bum.

:19:17.:19:20.

Yeah, but if there was a leak it would explain how Barton was found.

:19:20.:19:25.

Is it possible that Hughes could be the source?

:19:25.:19:27.

If they'd had any evidence they'd of charged him.

:19:27.:19:30.

Even if he wasn't, he might be able to tell us what was actually going on.

:19:30.:19:34.

Like if Barton was having problems.- I mean if he knew someone had found him,

:19:34.:19:37.

he might have gone to Hughes for help.

:19:37.:19:39.

Well, of course we do know who'd have been looking for him.

:19:39.:19:49.
:19:49.:19:58.

Who?

:19:58.:19:59.

I'm not here to mess around, Mr Robinson.

:19:59.:20:02.

How disappointing.

:20:02.:20:03.

When I started out that's all female- coppers were there for.

:20:03.:20:08.

That and to make the tea.

:20:08.:20:10.

How times have changed.

:20:10.:20:12.

Well, not for the better.

:20:12.:20:14.

Back then we all knew where we stood.

:20:14.:20:16.

Tell us about Thomas Barton.

:20:16.:20:19.

That name does sound familiar.

:20:19.:20:23.

If you don't want to answer then I'll just have to assume you were involved in his murder.

:20:23.:20:28.

I'll take that as yes, then.

:20:28.:20:31.

We're leaving. No, don't go.

:20:31.:20:33.

I mean we haven't got to know each other properly yet.

:20:33.:20:37.

I enjoy a bit of company,

:20:38.:20:41.

especially when it's wearing a skirt.

:20:41.:20:44.

I don't get out as much as I'd like.

:20:44.:20:46.

Should be used to that by now. You never get used to it.

:20:46.:20:49.

My kids are growing up,

:20:49.:20:52.

my wife is getting old.

:20:52.:20:54.

My whole life is passing me by.

:20:54.:20:58.

Rumour is you're still running your own business.

:20:58.:21:02.

Yeah, well you don't want to believe everything you hear. What about what we read?

:21:02.:21:06.

I'm going to need a bit more than that to go on.

:21:06.:21:08.

I had a look at the case files and I particularly enjoyed

:21:08.:21:12.

the description of you serenading Barton in the witness box.

:21:12.:21:15.

I've got quite a voice when I get warmed up.

:21:15.:21:19.

Mostly the classics, you know, Sinatra, Bacharach,

:21:19.:21:22.

a little bit of Matt Monro.

:21:22.:21:25.

Course you had to be there to get the full effect.

:21:25.:21:28.

I think we got the gist of it.

:21:28.:21:29.

Look, you wanted Barton dead for what he did

:21:29.:21:33.

and you were going to make sure you found him again.

:21:33.:21:36.

Thomas Barton?

:21:36.:21:38.

Yeah, it turns out that that was actually his real name.

:21:38.:21:41.

He was relocated as part of the witness protection scheme.

:21:41.:21:44.

Did he ever seem nervous to any of you?

:21:44.:21:47.

Like he was worried about something?

:21:47.:21:50.

Did I say something funny?

:21:50.:21:52.

No, it's just he really wasn't the nervous type, that's all.

:21:52.:21:57.

I mean the guy had front, you know,- whatever he was doing.

:21:57.:21:59.

Did anyone ever come here looking for him?

:21:59.:22:02.

No, no, nothing like that.

:22:02.:22:05.

Mr Carlisle?

:22:05.:22:09.

Ah, well, it wasn't that exactly, it's, it's probably nothing.

:22:09.:22:13.

Why don't you tell us anyway?

:22:13.:22:15.

Well, he did ask about a client he'd seen in the office once, wanted to know the guy's name.

:22:15.:22:20.

And who was this client?

:22:20.:22:22.

I can't remember. Anyway after I had told him...

:22:22.:22:26.

Collins, Barton, sorry getting confused.

:22:26.:22:29.

Uh... Well, he seemed OK again.

:22:29.:22:32.

But you think he mistook the client for someone else?

:22:32.:22:35.

Well, that's what it seemed like, yeah.

:22:35.:22:40.

You still pull all the strings, Mr Robinson,

:22:40.:22:43.

and even banged up in here you've got a long reach.

:22:43.:22:46.

Well, that's very sweet

:22:46.:22:48.

but I think you're giving me a little too much credit.

:22:48.:22:51.

But you don't deny you wanted Barton dead?

:22:51.:22:54.

There wouldn't be much point in that now would there?

:22:54.:22:56.

Oh, well we must have got it wrong.

:22:56.:22:58.

You're actually a reformed character.

:22:59.:23:02.

I've seen the error of my ways, I've repented, made peace with the world.

:23:02.:23:07.

You think you've got away with it but you are so wrong.

:23:07.:23:10.

Don't tell me what I think.

:23:10.:23:13.

In here I'm told when to eat, when to sleep and when to crap.

:23:13.:23:20.

But the one thing nobody can tell me is what I think.

:23:20.:23:25.

Yeah, yeah, I think I wanted Barton dead.

:23:25.:23:30.

But, then, I think we don't always get what we want, do we, Detective Superintendent?

:23:30.:23:37.

Not always but every now and then.

:23:37.:23:40.

I wasn't the only one that Barton put away.

:23:40.:23:45.

If that's an accusation you have to be more specific.

:23:45.:23:48.

That's not an accusation, that's just a fact.

:23:48.:23:55.

You know Barton's evidence put six men inside.

:23:55.:23:59.

Only one of them was out of prisonwhen he was killed, Anthony Walters.

:23:59.:24:04.

He was one of the drivers on Robinson's crew.

:24:04.:24:07.

Now he only served 18 months.

:24:07.:24:17.
:24:17.:24:26.

Sorry lads, not tonight.

:24:26.:24:29.

Your name Anthony Walters?

:24:29.:24:30.

It doesn't matter who gave you my name, I can't let you in.

:24:30.:24:33.

Not even with this?

:24:33.:24:37.

Two minutes, Al.

:24:37.:24:47.
:24:47.:24:56.

You're wasting your time, I've got nothing to say about Barton.

:24:56.:25:02.

Not even a bad word or two?

:25:02.:25:04.

After all it was his evidence that put you inside.

:25:04.:25:07.

That was a long time ago, I moved down here to put it behind me.

:25:07.:25:11.

I've got a new life. Yeah, I can see that.

:25:11.:25:14.

It must have been tough getting your SIA licence with a serious conviction on your record.

:25:14.:25:20.

You do have your SIA licence don't you, Anthony?

:25:20.:25:23.

I've got a little boy now, I'm trying to earn a living here.

:25:23.:25:27.

We'll take that as a "no", shall we?

:25:27.:25:29.

The bad news is that working the doors without a licence is illegal,

:25:29.:25:34.

the good news is thatit's not really our area of interest.

:25:34.:25:38.

Unless, of course, we decide to become interested.

:25:38.:25:43.

I'm not surprised someone killed Barton, there was a long list of people that wanted him dead.

:25:43.:25:49.

From what we hear, you were pretty near the top of that list.

:25:49.:25:53.

I wasn't on it at all. I never saw him again after the trial.

:25:53.:25:57.

But you must have been angry. Why?

:25:57.:26:00.

I could've got off, I chose not to.- How do you mean?

:26:00.:26:04.

You were offered a deal to testify?

:26:04.:26:06.

You lot were desperate to put Robinson away, that's all that mattered.

:26:06.:26:10.

I was told to think about it, I For a minute...

:26:10.:26:13.

If you'd said "yes", you could have avoided going inside.

:26:13.:26:17.

I did 18 months.

:26:18.:26:21.

If I'd given evidence against Robinson it would be like doing a life sentence.

:26:21.:26:25.

Every night I'd be checking the locks, looking over my shoulder.

:26:25.:26:29.

I didn't want to live like that so I kept my mouth shut.

:26:29.:26:32.

Unlike Barton. That was his choice.

:26:32.:26:36.

Hughes left his jobat Witness Protection in April 2004,

:26:36.:26:40.

that's a month after Barton was killed. Where did he go?

:26:41.:26:44.

He's dropped through the grid, there's no record of him getting another job.

:26:44.:26:48.

The address they gave me was years out of date but I tracked him down through the electoral role.

:26:48.:26:53.

I'll get my bag.

:26:53.:26:54.

Is now a good time, Sandra?

:26:54.:26:56.

We were just leaving. I'll come back.

:26:56.:26:59.

No, it's all right. Come in to my office. OK.

:26:59.:27:03.

I'll wait, then.

:27:03.:27:06.

I know it sounds ridiculous but I thought I'd ask anyway.

:27:06.:27:11.

Does sound ridiculous, doesn't it?

:27:11.:27:14.

Not entirely, I'm afraid.

:27:14.:27:16.

You mean UCOS is under threat? Everything's under threat.

:27:16.:27:20.

Half the force spends more time looking for savings than it does criminals.

:27:21.:27:24.

The other half is worried about being forced into early retirement.

:27:24.:27:28.

I think Spain will become so popular they'll have to rename it Costa del Cop.

:27:28.:27:33.

I'll try to remember and avoid that.

:27:33.:27:35.

Some units might disappear, others will just have to cut their cloth according to what's available.

:27:35.:27:40.

You mean lose personnel? Possibly.

:27:40.:27:43.

If that's judged to be the best use of resources. I'd find that totally unacceptable.

:27:43.:27:48.

This is a macro issue Sandra, not a micro one.

:27:48.:27:51.

I hate to admit it but this goes far higher than me, higher than the person above me.

:27:51.:27:57.

Can't you find out if we're being talked about?

:27:57.:28:01.

I'll twist some arms, see what I can pick up.

:28:01.:28:11.
:28:11.:28:22.

He's certainly done all right for himself.

:28:22.:28:25.

Especially for a man with no visible means of support. Yeah.

:28:25.:28:30.

Excuse me. Can I help you?

:28:30.:28:33.

Andrew Hughes? Yeah.

:28:33.:28:37.

Are you sure I can't get you anything? Coffee, tea, soft drink?

:28:37.:28:41.

No, I'm fine. No, not for me, thanks.

:28:41.:28:43.

Do you like it?

:28:43.:28:45.

Well, to be quite honest, I don't really know.

:28:45.:28:48.

I suppose that makes it thought provoking at least.

:28:48.:28:54.

What do you think?

:28:54.:28:56.

I think it looks expensive.

:28:56.:28:59.

Oh, it was. One of those things I just had to have.

:28:59.:29:02.

Just like this house I suppose and all those cars outside.

:29:02.:29:06.

I thought you wanted to talk to me about Thomas Barton. We do. Barton's dead.

:29:06.:29:12.

I didn't know. What happened? He was murdered by somebody he gave evidence against.

:29:12.:29:16.

The question is, how did they find him?

:29:16.:29:17.

And that information would be worth- an awful lot of money.

:29:17.:29:22.

You think I was paid for information? You think that's where- all this comes from?

:29:22.:29:28.

You don't work, Mr Hughes, as far as we can tell. So that's one possibility, yeah.

:29:28.:29:38.
:29:38.:29:39.

What am I looking at?

:29:39.:29:42.

The other possibility.

:29:42.:29:44.

My wife, Vicky.

:29:44.:29:45.

Woah. This is really nice.

:29:45.:29:48.

Vicky is a Riley, as in Riley's Auction House.

:29:48.:29:53.

She runs it now that her father's retired.

:29:53.:29:55.

And you just stay at home? Well, I look after the kids.

:29:55.:29:59.

It's not that unusual.

:29:59.:30:01.

Take us back to witness protection, Mr Hughes. Thank you.

:30:01.:30:04.

I did my job, I did everything I could.

:30:04.:30:06.

But you didn't notice that Barton was missing.

:30:06.:30:09.

We couldn't baby-sit people 24/7 - there wasn't the resources.

:30:09.:30:13.

It's not like in the movies, there's no big house or armed guards.

:30:13.:30:18.

But we heard there was a suspected leak.

:30:18.:30:20.

There's always a suspected leak, it's the kind of place it is.

:30:20.:30:23.

What, security conscious?

:30:23.:30:26.

Paranoid.

:30:26.:30:27.

I'm sure that can be a useful quality in this line of work

:30:27.:30:30.

but in this instance it went too far. There was never any leak.

:30:30.:30:35.

People just got careless.

:30:35.:30:38.

Some people can leave their old lives behind and others can't.

:30:38.:30:42.

The isolation gets to them, so they- try to make contact with someone.

:30:42.:30:45.

An old friend or member of the family and once that happens, all bets are off.

:30:45.:30:52.

Yeah, but we know that Barton didn't have any close family.

:30:52.:30:55.

That's not strictly true, he had a half brother,

:30:55.:30:58.

living in Canada, I think.

:30:58.:30:59.

No, with Barton it wouldn't have been a person he missed,

:30:59.:31:01.

more a way of life.

:31:01.:31:03.

What as a mechanic at the docks?

:31:03.:31:05.

As a criminal.

:31:05.:31:06.

What do you mean?

:31:06.:31:07.

Importing drugs.

:31:07.:31:09.

I don't understand, we were led to believe he wasn't involved.

:31:09.:31:13.

Oh, he was involved.

:31:13.:31:15.

Why isn't it mentioned in the files?

:31:15.:31:17.

Because it's against CPS policy to do a deal that involves no jail time.

:31:17.:31:21.

And Barton wouldn't have talked if it meant spending one night inside.

:31:21.:31:26.

I'm not saying he was top of the food chain but he was halfway up.

:31:26.:31:31.

He was climbing and ambitious. Just look at his relationship with Robinson's daughter.

:31:31.:31:35.

Robinson's daughter?

:31:35.:31:38.

Caroline, the apple of her father's eye.

:31:38.:31:40.

They were an item.

:31:40.:31:43.

There was a rumour that they were going to get married.

:31:43.:31:45.

He would have ended up criminal royalty.

:31:45.:31:47.

Instead of working in a garage in Slough.

:31:47.:31:51.

That's certainly not the life he would have wanted.

:31:51.:31:54.

Maybe this is what I should do. What?

:31:54.:31:56.

If UCOS gets cut, you know?

:31:56.:31:58.

You mean find a rich woman to keep you in a style to which you are not accustomed?

:31:58.:32:02.

What's so funny about that?

:32:02.:32:04.

Nothing, Gerry. You're a real catch.- Now get in.

:32:04.:32:09.

You know, I'm sure it's just a phase,

:32:09.:32:12.

I'll be through it any time now.

:32:12.:32:14.

Probably tonight.

:32:14.:32:17.

I'm already feeling a bit tired, now I think about it.

:32:17.:32:21.

DOOR OPENS

:32:21.:32:24.

Brian Lane.

:32:24.:32:32.

Either you go through that door oryou're sleeping on the sofa tonight.

:32:32.:32:37.

I'll slip a disc if I sleep on that sofa.

:32:37.:32:40.

Well, it's your choice.

:32:40.:32:44.

This way please.

:32:44.:32:46.

Before we start, I want to make one thing very clear.

:32:46.:32:49.

Whatever happens, I'm not shutting me eyes.

:32:49.:32:59.
:32:59.:33:00.

Hypnotherapy comes in many different guises Mr Lane,

:33:00.:33:05.

what I'd like to do first - is get you to relax.

:33:05.:33:08.

That's easier said than done.

:33:08.:33:10.

Well, let's give it a try anyway.

:33:10.:33:13.

How did you come here today?

:33:13.:33:15.

What's that got to do with anything?

:33:15.:33:17.

I'm just making conversation.

:33:17.:33:21.

I came on a bus, but, unusually, it was an orange bus,

:33:21.:33:24.

I'd never seen one before.

:33:24.:33:25.

An orange bus? That's right.

:33:25.:33:28.

But I don't want you to think about that, that's not important.

:33:28.:33:32.

We could start with breathing exercises.

:33:32.:33:34.

Me breathing's fine. I'm sure it is,

:33:34.:33:37.

but if you could just follow me. So...

:33:37.:33:39.

inhale and exhale,

:33:39.:33:44.

inhale and exhale...

:33:44.:33:47.

And as you exhale, the muscles in your chest relax.

:33:47.:33:51.

And what we're going to do is hitch a ride on that natural moment of relaxation.

:33:51.:33:56.

Inhale and exhale...

:33:56.:34:01.

What are you thinking about?

:34:01.:34:06.

What's going through your mind?

:34:06.:34:08.

Well, if you must know, it's that bloody orange bus.

:34:08.:34:12.

And that's because I told you not to.

:34:12.:34:13.

Can't get it out me head.

:34:13.:34:15.

It's the same principle when you're trying to sleep.

:34:15.:34:18.

You're telling yourself to do something

:34:18.:34:20.

and that has the knock on effect of it becoming the last thing you can actually do.

:34:20.:34:24.

So, inhale and exhale.

:34:24.:34:29.

Inhale and exhale...

:34:29.:34:39.
:34:39.:34:54.

I spoke to my father, I wondered how long it would take you.

:34:54.:34:57.

Detective Superintendent Pullman, this is Gerry Standing.

:34:58.:35:01.

One thing he taught me was to recognise a copper.

:35:01.:35:03.

What else did he teach you?

:35:03.:35:05.

Not to speak to them either.

:35:05.:35:08.

But I decided to ignore that lesson.

:35:08.:35:13.

We understand that you were close to Thomas Barton.

:35:13.:35:17.

If I'd have married Tommie, I'd have made my bed.

:35:17.:35:19.

I know I had a lucky escape.

:35:20.:35:22.

Well, it must have made you really angry.

:35:22.:35:25.

I mean, the man you were in love with betraying your father?

:35:25.:35:29.

My father understood the game, he'd played it his whole life.

:35:29.:35:32.

And I didn't love Tommie, it wouldn't have lasted.

:35:32.:35:36.

I always knew Tommie was selfish, everything was always about him, about what he wanted.

:35:36.:35:41.

And he had the charm to get away with that... For a while at least.

:35:41.:35:46.

When did you last see him?

:35:46.:35:49.

About a couple of hours before my father was arrested.

:35:49.:35:52.

Tommie knew exactly what was about to happen,

:35:52.:35:55.

but he asked me where I'd like to have dinner,

:35:55.:35:58.

he didn't even miss a beat.

:35:58.:36:00.

And you've never had any contact since?

:36:00.:36:02.

No, of course not.

:36:02.:36:04.

I certainly didn't go looking for him and he never came looking for me.

:36:04.:36:08.

Would you have told your father if he had?

:36:08.:36:10.

You mean, would I have asked my father to kill him? If you like.

:36:10.:36:14.

You want to know if I was angry.

:36:14.:36:16.

Well, the truth is I wasn't. I didn't care enough about Tommie to be angry.

:36:16.:36:23.

Does that answer your question?

:36:23.:36:25.

Orange buses and explaining how to get air into my own lungs.

:36:26.:36:31.

I might as well have taken the money and flushed it down the toilet.

:36:31.:36:35.

I thought he seemed very good. Good?!

:36:35.:36:38.

He's Mickey Mouse.

:36:38.:36:41.

I've a good mind to report him for violation of the Trade Descriptions Act.

:36:41.:36:45.

You've got to give him a chance, three sessions he said.

:36:45.:36:51.

Mary had at least six.

:36:52.:36:54.

When have you booked your next session?

:36:54.:37:00.

Brian?

:37:00.:37:06.

You did book your next session, didn't you, Brian?

:37:06.:37:16.
:37:16.:37:26.

Morning. Brian.

:37:26.:37:29.

Bright and early, Brian. I've had my first good night's sleep in a month.

:37:29.:37:32.

Glad to hear it.

:37:32.:37:34.

Was it the warm clothes? It was not.

:37:34.:37:39.

Ah. What?

:37:39.:37:41.

I'm going through all the prison visitors Robinson's had before Barton was killed, right.

:37:41.:37:46.

It's the same old friends, family associates,

:37:46.:37:48.

but none of them stand out at all.

:37:48.:37:50.

Down here, I found a name we do know, Anthony Walters.

:37:51.:37:54.

Walters visited Robinson in prison?

:37:54.:37:57.

He wouldn't be that stupid.

:37:57.:37:59.

He visited another bloke in the same nick so he could get a message to Robinson.

:37:59.:38:04.

To let him know he'd seen Barton.

:38:04.:38:06.

Well, exactly.

:38:06.:38:08.

You told me you'd leave me alone. We had a deal.

:38:08.:38:11.

I don't make deals, Mr Walters, but if I ever made an exception,

:38:11.:38:15.

it'd be based on you telling the truth.

:38:15.:38:17.

Which so far you haven't managed to do, so why don't you tell us about your prison visit?

:38:17.:38:22.

I didn't see Robinson. Maybe not but you saw someone on his wing.

:38:22.:38:25.

Look, all I've ever tried to do is keep my nose clean.

:38:25.:38:29.

If that's the truth, you've got nothing to worry about, have you?

:38:29.:38:32.

Even if it's not, you're still better off talking to us.

:38:32.:38:42.
:38:42.:38:42.

Barton came to see me.

:38:42.:38:45.

I didn't look for him, he just turned up, like nothing had ever happened.

:38:45.:38:49.

What did he want? He wanted me to get back into the drugs game.

:38:49.:38:53.

He told me he was setting up a was working on getting a supplier board. He was ready to go. on deal,

:38:53.:39:00.

I said no, of course I did.

:39:00.:39:03.

I wasn't interested, not now and not then.

:39:04.:39:06.

And I warned him that there'd be trouble if he got involved again.

:39:06.:39:10.

But you gave the information to Robinson?

:39:10.:39:13.

I didn't want anything to do with either of them.

:39:13.:39:16.

Not Barton or Robinson.

:39:16.:39:18.

But if somebody found out I'd seen Barton and not said anything...

:39:18.:39:21.

Robinson would've come after you.

:39:21.:39:24.

Finally, the penny's dropped.

:39:24.:39:27.

I wouldn't try and be too clever, Mr Walters.

:39:27.:39:29.

If Robinson arranged Barton's murder using information you gave him,

:39:30.:39:33.

you could be charged as an accessory. No, no way. That's not possible.

:39:33.:39:37.

But you told Robinson where he could find Barton.

:39:37.:39:40.

No I didn't, I didn't know.

:39:40.:39:42.

When I said I wasn't interested, he disappeared again.

:39:42.:39:45.

He didn't tell me how to contact him - I didn't ask.

:39:45.:39:49.

Anyway, Robinson wouldn't have needed me.

:39:49.:39:52.

What do you mean?

:39:52.:39:54.

If Barton was getting back in the drugs game,

:39:54.:39:58.

Robinson wouldn't have to look very far, would he?

:39:58.:40:04.

< If you wouldn't mind, John.

:40:04.:40:06.

Yeah, it's an ongoing murder investigation. Yeah, I'll hold. Thanks.

:40:06.:40:10.

Robinson had a network of contacts which involved people flying around Europe for meetings.

:40:10.:40:15.

They used to get together in hotels, just like ordinary businessmen and one of the hotels...

:40:15.:40:20.

Was the Maybrooke. Yeah. So we'll have to go back over the people staying there.

:40:20.:40:24.

I'm already on it. Yeah, fire ahead.

:40:24.:40:26.

Yeah, got him, great. Yeah, and where is that?

:40:27.:40:32.

Hey, John, thanks for that, mate. I really appreciate it.

:40:32.:40:35.

Cheers, take care.

:40:35.:40:38.

That was an old pal of mine from the Drug Squad,

:40:38.:40:41.

I gave him the hotel guest list and asked if anybody stood out...

:40:41.:40:45.

Henrik De Groot.

:40:45.:40:47.

He works for one of the major players in the Amsterdam drug scene.

:40:47.:40:52.

Chances are the same people that Robinson has been dealing with for years.

:40:52.:40:56.

So all Robinson had to do was put the word out and get them to play along.

:40:56.:41:00.

And De Groot's boss agrees to sell to Barton and sets up a meeting at the Maybrooke.

:41:00.:41:04.

But really, De Groot's there tokill him, on the orders of Robinson.

:41:05.:41:09.

So he waits in the car outside and when your man shows up, no more Barton.

:41:09.:41:12.

Well, Alice West saw somebody in the car.

:41:12.:41:16.

Not well enough to describe him, though.

:41:16.:41:18.

Well, maybe De Groot's face will jog her memory.

:41:18.:41:21.

Alice, we want you to look at these photographs very carefully.

:41:21.:41:26.

Take your time, Alice, there's no rush.

:41:26.:41:33.

This one, I recognise him.

:41:33.:41:37.

Are you absolutely sure?

:41:37.:41:39.

Yeah, a hundred percent.

:41:39.:41:41.

Alice, was this the man in the car?- The car?

:41:41.:41:47.

No, he was in here, in the restaurant.

:41:47.:41:51.

What?

:41:51.:41:53.

He was the man ordering coffee in the restaurant.

:41:53.:41:56.

So he was definitely in the restaurant when you went out- and found the body?

:41:56.:41:59.

Yeah, he was over there. That's what I'm saying.

:42:00.:42:03.

Is there any way he could have nipped out and then come back in again?

:42:03.:42:07.

No, not without me seeing. He wasthere the whole time. Just drinking.

:42:07.:42:12.

Well, thanks anyway.

:42:12.:42:15.

Did I say something wrong?

:42:15.:42:18.

No, not at all. Just not what we were expecting.

:42:18.:42:22.

You thought he was in the car! Well, we thought it was possible.

:42:22.:42:27.

I'm sorry, I've tried to remember the driver, I really have.

:42:27.:42:30.

Yes, yes, we know you have.

:42:31.:42:32.

It's probably in there somewhere, I just can't get it out.

:42:32.:42:40.

I'm desperate for a cigarette, just a couple of puffs, you know.

:42:40.:42:45.

So I go outside. Are you outside now?

:42:45.:42:48.

I leave the door open so I can get back in.

:42:48.:42:51.

And what do you do next?

:42:51.:42:54.

I take out a fag and go to light it.

:42:54.:42:57.

With a lighter or matches? A lighter.

:42:57.:43:02.

But then I see a man lying on the ground.

:43:02.:43:05.

I don't want you to look at the man, Alice, I want you to look around alley. What else can you see?

:43:05.:43:10.

I can see a car.

:43:10.:43:12.

Is there anyone inside the car?

:43:12.:43:16.

Yeah, in the driver's seat.

:43:16.:43:20.

But I can't see them very well.

:43:20.:43:22.

OK, let's look at the car itself again. What colour is it?

:43:22.:43:26.

It's blue, a dark blue.

:43:26.:43:29.

Now I want you to look back at the driver. Is it a man or a woman?

:43:29.:43:35.

I think it's a man.I can't really tell, but I think so.

:43:35.:43:41.

Can you see this man's face?

:43:41.:43:43.

No, I can't see it. It's just...

:43:43.:43:48.

I... No, I can't see it.

:43:48.:43:52.

It was worth a try, at least.

:43:52.:43:55.

And what about the number plate on the car, Alice? Can you see that?

:43:55.:43:59.

Alice? Can you see the number plate?

:43:59.:44:04.

I think so. Yes, yes, I can.

:44:04.:44:09.

Please read the number out.

:44:09.:44:14.

Y169...

:44:14.:44:17.

Forget about a description of the driver -

:44:17.:44:19.

she read out the whole number plate

:44:19.:44:21.

as if it was right there in front of her.

:44:21.:44:23.

That's fantastic. Yeah, I've got to- admit, I was sceptical.

:44:23.:44:27.

I should hang onto that thought if I was you.

:44:27.:44:29.

Why, what's the problem?

:44:29.:44:30.

The vehicle is registered to a Dennis Craven.

:44:30.:44:34.

He's got no form. He's a maths teacher at a comprehensive school near Staines.

:44:34.:44:38.

A maths teacher?

:44:38.:44:40.

Well, that's the end of that, then.

:44:40.:44:42.

I knew all that stuff was mumbo jumbo.

:44:42.:44:44.

PHONE RINGS

:44:44.:44:46.

Hello, UCOS. Yeah, speaking.

:44:46.:44:49.

It is possible that Alice West got it wrong about the number plate.

:44:49.:44:53.

Or she got it right but the car had- nothing to do with Barton's death.

:44:53.:44:56.

Well, thanks very much for calling. Yeah, goodbye.

:44:56.:45:00.

That was the local council about where Barton's body's buried. Oh, yeah?

:45:00.:45:05.

Seems we're not the only onesinterested. They had a call from a woman claiming to be his mother.

:45:05.:45:10.

His mother's dead. Maybe Caroline Robinson cared more about him than she said.

:45:10.:45:20.
:45:20.:45:44.

Excuse me. Can I have a word?

:45:44.:45:50.

Dennis Craven's house is number 49... Here.

:45:50.:46:00.
:46:00.:46:03.

So is it still working? What?

:46:03.:46:06.

Hypnosis. Oh, yeah, brilliant.

:46:06.:46:08.

Mind you, it's not really hypnosis,- is it?

:46:08.:46:11.

It's more just the power of suggestion.

:46:11.:46:13.

It definitely worked for me, even if it didn't for Alice West.

:46:13.:46:17.

Maybe it did. What?

:46:17.:46:19.

Take a look at this.

:46:19.:46:27.

The car was serviced at Carlisle's garage.

:46:27.:46:30.

And it was in for its service on the very day Barton was killed.

:46:30.:46:33.

We've got the paperwork to prove it.

:46:34.:46:36.

Can't be a coincidence - the odds on that are astronomical.

:46:36.:46:39.

And anyway, De Groot was inside the hotel when Barton was attacked.

:46:39.:46:43.

So maybe we've been sidetracked by this whole Robinson scenario.

:46:43.:46:47.

Hiya. We've assumed that he was killed because of what he did as Thomas Barton.

:46:47.:46:53.

Maybe he was killed because of what he did as Christopher Collins.

:46:53.:46:57.

What's going on? The car outside the- hotel was from Carlisle's garage.

:46:57.:47:00.

We've probably been looking in completely the wrong place.

:47:00.:47:03.

I've got something that might support that theory.

:47:03.:47:06.

A woman left flowers at Barton's grave.

:47:06.:47:10.

Do you know who it was? No, I haven't got a name,

:47:10.:47:13.

but from the description, it was not Caroline Robinson.

:47:13.:47:23.
:47:23.:47:26.

Can we come in, please, Mrs Carlisle?

:47:26.:47:29.

My husband's not here, he's at work. Yeah, we know.

:47:29.:47:33.

Thank you.

:47:33.:47:38.

Look, I just worked with Collins, or Barton,

:47:38.:47:40.

or whatever his name was - that's all.

:47:40.:47:42.

And not even for very long. So you didn't know him well?

:47:42.:47:45.

That's what I just said.

:47:45.:47:47.

Yeah, and that's why I'm wondering why you put flowers on his grave.

:47:47.:47:53.

I just...thought someone should, that's all.

:47:53.:47:56.

I just thought someone should do something.

:47:56.:47:59.

Do you know what a log file is? No.

:47:59.:48:03.

It's a record of activities on a website.

:48:03.:48:05.

You first visited the Not Ever Forgotten website about six months ago.

:48:06.:48:10.

You looked at the page with Barton's photograph on it on 32 occasions.

:48:10.:48:15.

Why didn't you come forward earlier?

:48:15.:48:17.

I don't know, I guess... I guess I wasn't sure.

:48:17.:48:21.

No, no, I think you waited because you were hiding something.

:48:21.:48:25.

I had nothing to do with his death.

:48:25.:48:29.

That's not what we're saying. If you were involved, you wouldn't have come forward at all.

:48:29.:48:34.

You were worried we'd find out that- you and Barton had had an affair.

:48:34.:48:42.

You can't tell John.

:48:42.:48:45.

You can't tell him.

:48:45.:48:48.

I'm telling you, Brian, we were on our way out,

:48:48.:48:51.

she calls him into her office and shuts the door on me.

:48:52.:48:54.

And it was just her and Strickland?

:48:54.:48:56.

Yeah, doesn't look good, does it?

:48:56.:48:59.

Nah. Well, I shall go freelance, Gerry. Freelance?

:48:59.:49:04.

Yeah, you know, that website, Not Ever Forgotten -

:49:04.:49:08.

they've got hundreds of open cases spread all over the world.

:49:08.:49:11.

They could really use somebody with my experience.

:49:11.:49:14.

Well, you're going to have to do something.

:49:14.:49:16.

Don't worry - if UCOS closes, I'll not be going back on the booze.

:49:16.:49:20.

I wasn't thinking about that. I was thinking about Esther.

:49:20.:49:24.

She's not going to put up with you around the house all day, every day, is she?

:49:24.:49:28.

Oh, here we go.

:49:28.:49:32.

So, that's 45 to the gallon around town,

:49:32.:49:35.

so on the open road you can probably account for...

:49:35.:49:39.

Uh, be back in a minute.

:49:39.:49:43.

Can this wait? Not really. She's been here for the third time, and I think she's about to bite.

:49:43.:49:49.

Someone else'll have to reel her in.

:49:49.:49:51.

Keys, boss.

:49:52.:49:53.

And it won't be him either.

:49:54.:49:59.

I-I met John when I was 18. Three months later, we were married.

:50:00.:50:06.

My parents wouldn't come - they didn't approve.

:50:06.:50:12.

It was the age difference - he was 31.

:50:12.:50:16.

It didn't matter to me.

:50:16.:50:18.

I loved him.

:50:19.:50:22.

And I've never...regretted it,

:50:22.:50:27.

it's just he likes to be...

:50:27.:50:31.

In control?

:50:31.:50:32.

No, no, not that, just... always together.

:50:32.:50:37.

It can feel a little suffocating sometimes.

:50:37.:50:43.

Chris wasn't like that. By Chris you mean Thomas Barton?

:50:43.:50:48.

He was Chris to me, and he was different, that was all.

:50:48.:50:57.

Exciting.

:50:57.:51:00.

I was flattered, and I was stupid.

:51:00.:51:04.

It was a crazy thing to do. But it happened, it just happened.

:51:04.:51:08.

I understand. Do you?

:51:08.:51:11.

Because I don't, not really.

:51:11.:51:16.

I knew it was a mistake straightaway.

:51:16.:51:18.

It didn't last long, just a couple of weeks.

:51:18.:51:21.

I told him I couldn't do it.

:51:21.:51:25.

It wasn't worth it, it wasn't worth- risking everything I had,

:51:25.:51:29.

everything I've got, for a fling.

:51:29.:51:33.

Where did you go on the night he was killed?

:51:33.:51:35.

How do you know I went anywhere?

:51:35.:51:37.

Just answer the question, please, Lisa.

:51:37.:51:40.

I...wanted some time on my own, I went to my mother's.

:51:40.:51:45.

She lives near Dartmouth, in Devon.

:51:45.:51:48.

Did you drive? Yes.

:51:48.:51:51.

You took your car?

:51:51.:51:52.

We only have one car.

:51:52.:51:54.

What difference does that make?

:51:54.:51:58.

Who else knew about you and Barton,- apart from your husband?

:51:58.:52:03.

John didn't know.

:52:03.:52:05.

Didn't he?

:52:05.:52:07.

John didn't know.

:52:07.:52:11.

Your wife went to Devon, she drove there in your car,

:52:11.:52:13.

and that's why you had to take one that was in for a service.

:52:14.:52:19.

There are people in and out all the time.

:52:19.:52:21.

Anyone could have had access to that vehicle.

:52:21.:52:25.

That's probably true.

:52:25.:52:26.

Anyone could have a motive,

:52:26.:52:29.

but you're the only one whose wife was having an affair with Thomas Barton.

:52:29.:52:34.

Lisa?

:52:34.:52:38.

No, no way.

:52:38.:52:42.

That never happened.

:52:42.:52:46.

I don't believe you.

:52:46.:52:48.

I could say the same thing. We know about the relationship. She confirmed it.

:52:48.:52:53.

She told you that? Yes, she did.

:52:53.:52:56.

She didn't think that you knew, but you did, didn't you?

:52:56.:53:00.

Of course I didn't.

:53:00.:53:03.

You had to - that's why you went to the Maybrooke.

:53:03.:53:05.

Maybe you didn't go there to kill him -

:53:05.:53:07.

maybe you just wanted to warn him off.

:53:07.:53:11.

I didn't go anywhere.

:53:11.:53:14.

And you can't prove I did. We'll prove it, Mr Carlisle, I can promise you that.

:53:14.:53:21.

We know you knew about Barton and Lisa Carlisle's affair.

:53:21.:53:25.

You saw them together.

:53:25.:53:28.

And we know why you're so loyal to Carlisle.

:53:28.:53:31.

I mean, you've been with him a long time.

:53:31.:53:33.

He gave you a job when many others wouldn't have.

:53:33.:53:38.

But that loyalty should only be stretched so far.

:53:38.:53:44.

Did Carlisle tell you that he killed Barton?

:53:44.:53:49.

John Carlisle is a good man.

:53:49.:53:51.

You didn't answer the question.

:53:51.:53:54.

Yeah, I did.

:53:54.:53:56.

You're hanging by a thread here, Jason.

:53:56.:54:00.

Accessory, conspiracy - we've got all sorts of options.

:54:00.:54:05.

Take your best shot.

:54:05.:54:08.

I really don't have anything more to say.

:54:08.:54:11.

That is your right, Mr Carlisle.

:54:11.:54:14.

It does seem such a waste, though.

:54:14.:54:18.

I mean, given that the affair was over.

:54:18.:54:21.

Pointless, really. Lisa had made her choice. What?

:54:21.:54:24.

The affair, the one that you didn't know about.

:54:25.:54:28.

It was finished, done and dusted.

:54:28.:54:31.

She'd already chosen you, John.

:54:31.:54:35.

No. Yeah, the relationship was over.

:54:36.:54:39.

No, no, no - they were still seeing each other.

:54:39.:54:44.

They were meeting in the hotel. Mr Carlisle. Just wait...

:54:44.:54:47.

Sorry, they were what?

:54:47.:54:49.

I knew, I heard him on the phone.

:54:49.:54:54.

Barton wasn't there to meet Lisa.

:54:54.:54:57.

I heard the name of the hotel, he was arranging it all.

:54:57.:55:00.

He wasn't meeting her - he was there for something completely different.

:55:00.:55:04.

You know the best bit? You didn't have to kill him.

:55:04.:55:09.

There was someone else desperate to do it, and they would have done as well.

:55:09.:55:13.

Except you got there first.

:55:13.:55:22.

Brian, is Sandra around? She's in an interview.

:55:22.:55:25.

OK, thanks.

:55:25.:55:27.

Do you want me to give her a message?

:55:27.:55:30.

Just ask her to give me a call, will you?

:55:30.:55:31.

Can I tell her what it's about?

:55:31.:55:34.

I've got some news for her, that's all. Thanks.

:55:34.:55:44.

I didn't want him dead. I didn't.

:55:44.:55:48.

I just wanted it to stop.

:55:48.:55:50.

So you waited close to the hotel.

:55:50.:55:54.

Yeah, I was going to go in and, you know, knock on the door.

:55:54.:56:02.

He was waiting outside when I got there, having a fag.

:56:02.:56:07.

I told him to leave Lisa alone.

:56:07.:56:10.

And what did he do?

:56:10.:56:14.

He smiled at me.

:56:14.:56:17.

That's what did it.

:56:17.:56:22.

He'd taken my wife away from me, and he just stood there and he smiled.

:56:22.:56:27.

What happened next?

:56:27.:56:31.

He pushed past me.

:56:31.:56:34.

He was just walking away, he wasn't listening.

:56:34.:56:37.

I swung my arm out and caught him on the face.

:56:37.:56:41.

He wobbled a bit, but he was still smiling.

:56:41.:56:45.

So I hit him again and he went down.

:56:45.:56:52.

I just didn't want to lose her.

:56:52.:56:59.

I wasn't going to let that happen.

:56:59.:57:07.

KNOCK ON THE DOOR

:57:08.:57:11.

Where's John? Is he here? Can I see him?

:57:11.:57:14.

I need to see my husband.

:57:14.:57:15.

That's not possible at the moment.

:57:15.:57:18.

Can I get you anything?

:57:18.:57:19.

Cup of tea?

:57:19.:57:21.

This is all my fault.

:57:21.:57:24.

I knew how much he loved me, that should've been enough.

:57:24.:57:30.

Yeah, but you're not responsible for what other people do.

:57:30.:57:33.

I am responsible, he did it for me.

:57:33.:57:37.

God, why did I?

:57:37.:57:40.

I'll never forgive myself.

:57:40.:57:48.

To UCOS. UCOS.

:57:48.:57:51.

And all who sail in her. All who sink in her.

:57:51.:57:54.

I've got some news.

:57:54.:57:56.

Yeah, we can guess. How long have we got?

:57:56.:57:59.

We know you've discussed it with Strickland.

:57:59.:58:02.

We're prepared for the worst.

:58:02.:58:04.

Pastures new.

:58:04.:58:06.

Sorry to disappoint you, but Strickland has made some enquiries,

:58:06.:58:09.

and you're not going to get away that easily.

:58:09.:58:11.

UCOS reinvestigate the murder of an unidentified male found in a west London alleyway seven years ago when the victim is named on a website highlighting unexplained disappearances.
