What are you doing?
Why's he not being charged with assault?
You should be pleased - we got a result.
Pleased he'll get off with a slapped wrist?
-He's saying your dad attacked HIM as he was leaving.
-Well, he's lying.
You stole the ring. I want it back.
I don't know anything about it. Sorry.
Tell me what you've done with it.
Maybe we could make room for you at ours.
-You can't be serious?
-Well, at least until you're on your feet again.
MUSIC: "Cello Concerto in E Minor" by Elgar
-Would you listen to that racket?!
You don't like Elgar?
No' when he's blasting through my wall at the crack of dawn, I don't.
-HE GROANS You'll get used to it.
-No, I won't.
When he gets up, me and your dad are having words.
-It's not THAT bad.
-Are you kidding?!
Three hours' sleep I got last night. Four, the night before that.
And yet you look radiant.
Don't be smart.
-I'll talk to him, OK?
-There's no need. I'll dae it myself.
I said I'd handle it.
-I'm not scared of him, you know.
-I never said you were.
Then, why I can't I talk to him?
-Cos it's not your problem.
-Aye, it is!
I'm the one that has to go to work looking like this.
I'll handle it.
Well, now's your chance.
MOBILE PHONE BUTTONS BEEP
-What's up with him?
-Lack of sleep.
Should've gone to bed earlier.
Yeah. Actually, Dad, we need to talk.
What's this? Stock take?
Shopping list. I need you to pick a few things up for me.
Well, you'll have to speak to Robbie. It's his supermarket day tomorrow.
Has to be today. Thought I'd make dinner tonight as a way of thanks.
Oh, Dad, that's not necessary.
You and Robbie took me in.
Well, that's what families do.
Even so, I'd like to at least pay you back by making a meal.
Is there anything he doesn't eat?
Dunno... Peas, he doesn't eat peas.
-What's his problem with peas?
He says they're too green.
Did you want to talk about something?
MOBILE RINGS Nah, it can wait.
She turned up at seven this morning.
-Do we know why she's here?
You think it's trouble?
Only one way to find out.
Oh, there he is. The man of the hour.
How does it feel to be a hero?
-Oh, the DCC didn't call you?
Makes sense, I suppose. The awards panel only approved it last night.
DC Cooper's commendation for his work on the Alice Reynolds case.
-Who put him up for that?
And I'm glad to say that the panel accepted my recommendation.
You don't seem very happy, DC Cooper.
Oh, it's...just unexpected, that's all.
Well, the presentation's next week,
but, for now, a celebratory cup of tea, perhaps?
DCI Donald, would you do the honours?
You sure she's up for this?
It's been a week.
Aye, but she's still upset.
Because we let her mope.
You're going to be late! Christina!
Have you tried talking to her?
-About her feelings.
I know how she feels.
I was a teenager myself once.
I know what a crush is.
Alice was more than a crush.
It's no' just Alice. This past month, she's been to hell and back.
So, I should just let her lie in her bed all day, is that it?
No. Talk to her. Support her...
Why don't YOU support me in getting her to go to school?
I can't go in today.
-I know, pet, but your mother thinks...
I've got a better idea.
The Superintendent was just filling me in on some drug intel.
Really? Anything useful?
A name. Bobby Bradshaw.
-I ran his name through the database, but nothing came up.
And he's ambitious. And he's moving a lot of product.
How much are we talking?
Enough to supply half the city.
No. Somebody that big operating in Shieldinch, we'd have heard.
You're hearing now.
We have a location on Bradshaw. I want you to go and see him.
With respect, ma'am, if this guy IS that serious,
we won't get anything by going in through the front door.
He's right. Shouldn't we take our time, build the case...?
I want him checked out today.
OK, let's go find Bradshaw.
Actually, I need DC Cooper to stay.
There are a few details we need to go over on the Alice Reynolds case.
Keep me up to speed on Bradshaw. DC Cooper.
Ma'am, I was just wondering...
what the problem was with the Reynolds case?
Apart from blowing 70 grand in relocation funds, nothing.
So, what is it you wanted to discuss?
For the past nine weeks,
I've had a team going over every case generated by this station.
-You mind telling me why?
-You mean you don't know?
I know we've had some good results.
Good? I'd say the results in this station have been unbelievable.
You know, it's not so much that you get people -
it's the amount you get them for. It's off the scale.
Suspects walk in to this nick, and suddenly they're owning up
to not just ONE, but dozens of crimes.
So, we've had some lucky breaks.
17, by our reckoning.
17 cases flagged as suspect by my team,
all with an unusually high number of charges,
and all signed off by DCI Donald.
So, the numbers are high.
The boss knows how to interrogate a suspect.
Or he gets them to confess to crimes they didn't do?
Laddering? That's a serious allegation.
Which is why you're going to take me through each of these cases
so we can get to the bottom of this.
I'm not sure how comfortable I am investigating my own boss.
Well, you better get comfortable, cos it's going to be a long day.
HE SIGHS DEEPLY
MOBILE BUTTONS BEEP
Thinks I'm at his beck and call?!
Nae consideration for anybody.
Don't know why I didn't just tell him to shove it.
We need the money.
-I know. Right, I'll see you later.
Eh, don't tell me she's working today?
Aye, Lenny called her in. Short notice.
-I needed her to watch Cal.
-I thought he was at nursery?
They willnae take him. I'm still three months behind with the fees.
-How did you let THAT happen?
-Oh, I don't know, Jimmy.
I must've forgotten to transfer the money from my Swiss bank account.
Mind like a sieve, me(!) I didnae just let it happen. I'm skint.
I'm just saying you could be a wee bit better organised.
I don't have time to be organised.
-Look, I'll take Cal.
-Aye. We'll have a blast.
Jimmy, you're a lifesaver. Right, there's some toys in there,
and a wee packed lunch I made up for him.
OK, you be a good boy for Jimmy. I'll see you later.
You no' gonnae say bye-bye to your mammy?
Did Edward keep you up again?!
Five o'clock this morning, he started blasting it oot.
-Can you no' have a word wi' him?
It's been a while since we've had you two in here.
We thought we'd treat ourselves.
Mum, we don't have an appointment.
-Well, I'm sure we could fit you in.
-Of course we can!
It's not everyday we get to work on a couple of supermodels.
-Can you get Christina settled?
(How's she bearing up?)
Not so good. She sleeps, she cries...
Bless her. She has had a tough couple of months, though.
I know, but...
maybe you can cheer her up, just pamper her a little?
Leave it to me.
Right, Kelly, we want the full Cleopatra,
make-over, massage, and a milk bath...
We are out of asses' milk, so it's going to have to be semi-skimmed.
What if I'd had stuff planned?
I don't know. Stuff.
Just saying, gie's a bit more notice the next time.
Well, I notice you've missed a spot.
-Take a break, Scarlett.
-What about the spot?
You can miss it later.
Business booming, is it?
What can I say? I'm comfortable.
Well, I'm afraid you're going to have to rough it for a few weeks.
Things might get a bit sticky.
Sticky for me, or sticky for you?
Both of us.
The top brass are taking an interest in Shieldinch.
And what would they want with me? HE LAUGHS
Don't flatter yourself, Lenny.
These boys have got slightly bigger fish to fry.
Oh, drugs, is it?
Maybe I can help you.
Why would you want to do that?
Maybe I don't want some drug kingpin moving in on my patch.
Don't worry about it.
It's just some chancer with ideas above his station,
and he's about to be brought down.
You just keep your head low.
We wouldn't want any minnows getting caught up in the big boys' net, now, would we?
Get me a coffee, Scarlett.
What's the magic word?
It's Lenny. Get on to Bradshaw.
Tell him he's going to have to disappear.
Cos I said so, that's why.
So, you've got him for the mini-market,
but then he coughs up to a pair of house burglaries AND possession?
He asked them to be taken into consideration.
What, just like that?
Well, we had leverage.
All the burglaries took place in the same area.
That's not enough to go on.
But mode of entry is. The same method was used in all the cases.
Is this a personal thing?
You covering for Donald.
There's nothing to cover.
Please. I've known Donald since he was in uniform.
Cops like him are always hiding something.
So, is this a personal thing?
I'll get the next case, shall I?
He'll drag you down with him if he has to.
You do know that?
PHONE RINGS IN BACKGROUND
If you ask me, it's his dad's fault.
Edward's to blame for Will's overdeveloped sense of responsibility.
-Where did THAT come fae?!
-I picked up a psychology magazine.
Anyway, his sense of duty comes from a need to please Edward.
And what's wrong wi' that?
By trying to get his dad's approval, he's abandoning himself, AND others.
Are you sure you didnae lift up TWO psychology magazines?
Here, take this morning.
I says to him, "I'm going to have it oot with Edward,"
he steps in and takes over.
Maybe he didn't want trouble?
Trouble? I was going to talk to the man,
not glass him in the kitchen.
Yeah, but it can't be easy living with your husband and your father.
Aye, especially if they're arguing.
You feel you're in the middle, like a referee. Keeping peace.
It's no' just Edward.
Will feels as though he has to solve every single problem.
He can have a go at mine, if he feels.
Oh, for God's sake, don't tempt him. He takes on too much.
Not so bad in a person, is it?
I just worry it's going to bite him in the bum one day.
Right, Robbie, focus. Get on wi' this.
She's sniffing around the right areas but, so far, she's got nothing.
-'What do the cases look like?'
'I had to bury one of them.'
I handled it. It's fine.
How's it going with Bradshaw?
Far as I can tell, the guy exists, but he's not here any more.
You think the intel was out of date?
'Hmm, the place is in use.'
Reckon he's bolted in the last hour.
'You think he was tipped off?'
-Sir, you still there?
Listen, keep Cole occupied.
OK, when are you coming back?
You gave me the wrong case.
The supporting material doesn't match up.
Right. Must've been a mix-up.
Hmm. Surprising. It's your father's case.
I must've made a mistake keying in the reference.
No, I think you got it right first time.
Want to tell me what's going on?
I keep telling them to keep the files in order.
There's no system at all.
The amount of files I've lost in here, it's unbelievable.
Here you go. Found it.
Want me to take you through it?
PHONE RINGS IN BACKGROUND
Never heard of him.
Oh, wait a minute.
Did he no' play for Hearts?
-Did you tip him off?
-Dunno what you're talking about.
I'm talking about a high-profile drug dealer
who just happened to bolt about an hour after I spoke to you.
Was he your big fish?
Did you tip him off?
Me? I'm a minnow, remember?
These guys, way out my league.
So, what is it? You working for this guy?
Oh, he works for you?
What? The deal I gave you wasnae big enough?
Well, with the economy the way it is, I decided to diversify.
You're only in business cos of me.
You're here cos I tolerate you!
Who the hell do you think you're talking to?
You tolerate ME? Are you kidding?
You actually think you're running things?
You're an errand boy.
Well, this errand boy could put you away for drug running.
I don't think so. Anyway...
I've got as much on you as you have on me.
And prison? Man in my condition?
Be a skoosh.
A bent copper...?
I wouldnae fancy YOUR chances.
Right, wee man. Quick tidy-up, then we're off to the park.
Oh! No, no, no...
Just take that off you. Good lad, there we are...
Tell you what, um...
First, some music, and you can be the DJ, OK?
There we go, that's you.
MUSIC PLAYS SOFTLY
Right... Oh, this is the life, eh?
All the lads together, nae women to nag us...
MUSIC INCREASES IN VOLUME
That's a wee bit loud, pal.
MUSIC INCREASES IN VOLUME
Cal, you're going to hurt your ears.
-MUSIC DECREASES IN VOLUME
MUSIC INCREASES IN VOLUME
The music, it's too loud.
The music box. It's too loud.
Callum, son, can you hear this?
MUSIC PLAYS SOFTLY
That's £2.50 change. Thanks, darling.
Hey! All right, boys?
Have you any kids' magazines?
Eh, aye, the comics are all on the bottom shelf.
No, not comics. More to do with having kids - you know, parenting.
Aye, well, we've got one on pregnancy and childbirth.
No, that's nae good.
I'm thinking about, you know, their personal development.
You know, health and milestones.
Sounds a wee bit specialist, Jimmy.
What's he doing wi' you?
Kelly's no' paid the nursery for three months. She's skint.
What are we going to dae wi' her?
Gie her a break. She's pretty down on herself.
There's one about kids' health, but I'd need to order it in.
What are you getting that for?
-Eh...nothing. Thought he had a wee cold, but he's fine.
Listen, why don't you take Kelly for a drink later on?
-It'll maybe cheer her up.
Aye. I'll look after Cal.
Take it and run, Scarlett.
You're on. See you.
Superintendent, you off?
-Something I need to check on.
-Would you like me to come along?
I thought you were handling her?
Yeah. I might have messed up.
What? You didn't think she'd notice it was a different file?
She turned up with reference numbers.
I didn't realise she'd be across all the case details.
Of course she's across them! She's been planning this for months.
Oh, of all the cases...!
We might as well have slapped a note with "laddering here" written on it.
-All right, I made a mistake.
-And gave her my head on a plate!
That case didn't reflect too well on me either, remember?
OK, first things first. Get the file.
She took it with her.
Took it where?
Well, this is a surprise.
-I've just made a cup of tea. Would you like one?
So, "superintendent" now, is it?
You sound surprised.
I remember you when you were just a plod,
fumbling over your notes in the witness box.
Take a seat.
So, how's the leg?
Healing, so the doctor says.
Must have been quite an ordeal.
-Not one I'd wish to repeat.
Just a shame Donald couldn't get Bell for assault.
I'm sure he tried his best.
He couldn't have tried very hard.
The description you gave of Bell was bang on. You're very observant.
Yes, but I'm old. That makes me an unreliable witness.
Bell's defence would have a field day with me.
Still, strange they didn't push him.
He was clearly in the mood.
Sorry? In the mood?
They charged Bell with every offence connected to this crime,
except the one that mattered.
They got him for B&E, criminal damage,
going equipped for theft...
Half of them he owned up to by himself...
..and yet they couldn't get him for assaulting an elderly citizen.
-Have you ever heard of laddering, Edward?
Some cops turn a blind eye.
Nothing but a bit of creative bookkeeping - doesn't do any harm.
Not real harm.
But you see, when cops focus on the small crimes to bolster their stats,
they start to ignore the big ones.
Take you, for instance. The victim of violent crime,
perpetrated by a man who's going about as free as a bird.
They might have got him for a few minor crimes,
but they didn't get you justice.
You're not suggesting...
Of course not. I'm just using you as an example, that's all.
Right, here we go. That one's yours.
Oh, you both look so lovely. So, where are you off to next?
Too early for home. We'll go and show ourselves off.
Sorry. Doesn't look like we've done a very good job of cheering her up.
The day's not over yet.
The Aiden Bell case.
-Were you in any way part of the investigation?
My dad was involved in the case, so I was told to stay clear.
So, this was all Donald's work?
He pretty much led it, yeah.
So, there's nothing I need to know?
Not that I can think of, no.
I thought you'd left us for the day?
Is that the Edward Cooper case?
Thought I'd look into it.
Aiden Bell was a good collar.
I'm sure he was.
Still, there are a few questions I'd like to ask him.
Problem is, Bell's gone to ground. We've no idea where he is.
Really? According to one of your units, he's at home right now.
We're just about to go and pick him up.
So, I want you to collect that and put it straight on my desk, OK?
Do you mind me asking what's going on?
Like I said, I'm looking into the Edward Cooper case.
-Seems to me you're reopening it.
-And what if I am?
Well, it was my case.
I think I've a right to ask why you're reopening it.
OK. I think you had the evidence to charge Bell with assault,
but you got greedy and cut a deal.
To drop the assault if Bell agreed to cop to a bunch of minor crimes.
Laddering? You're coming after me for laddering?
You think I care about the stats that much?
I'm not sure what you care about.
Oh, and stick around, would you?
We'll be needing to have a little talk later.
Sir... ENGINE REVS
No answer from Bell's mobile.
If we want to get to Bell before she does, we need to go now.
If she gets Bell to talk, we're both in a lot of trouble.
-Just go home, Cooper.
It's not you she wants, it's me.
For now. What if Bell points the finger at me?
That's why you need to go home.
I can handle Cole, and I can handle Bell,
but not while you're around.
Right now, you're a liability.
What about dinner, or the cinema?
We could watch something trashy.
-I'd rather just go home.
-But that's no fun...
I don't want to have fun.
Then, what do you want?
I'll get you another juice.
Been meaning to call you.
I've been worried about you.
What are you doing?!
Just saying hello.
And now you can say goodbye.
Mum, we were talking.
You don't need to talk to her.
Know what? It's fine.
Right, wee man. Let's get you here.
Good lad. All right?
-What do you mean, "What?"
I'm calling his name and he's not hearing me.
-You were practically whispering. How's he supposed to hear that?
-Well, YOU did.
Right, let's try again.
-What you doing?
-You were prompting him.
-No, I wasn't.
-You were! I seen what you were doing.
Going like that with your eyes.
Lenny, I'm trying to work out if we've got a problem here.
No, what you're trying to say...
You're trying to say that my grandson might be defective.
-Why are you whispering?
-Because I don't want the boy to hear.
-That's the whole point - he cannae.
-How do you know for sure?
-Let's get him tested.
-Then what? What do they do then?
Label him, that's what. Stigmatised at four years of age, eh?
Going through the rest of his life getting the mickey took out of him,
or worse still, pity...
Well, my grandson's not going through that, you hear me?!
Oh, aye, loud and clear. The problem is, he cannae.
You both look brilliant.
Where are you going?
Toilet. Is that OK?
This is all your fault.
-Me? What have
You were the one who told me to spend some time with her.
But I never told you to get a makeover.
I thought it would cheer her up.
Look, this past month, she's been bullied, she's been kidnapped,
and on top of all that, she's lost the love of her life.
She just wants somebody to talk to.
Something you want to tell me?
-Something to do with work?
-They phoned and left a message.
-Some posh guy.
But anyway, the upshot of it is, I'm married to a hero!
A commendation? That's practically a knighthood, isn't it?
No, it's nothing like that.
Will we at least get a wee statue for the mantelpiece?
-Well, we need to celebrate.
-No way, Robbie. I'm not in the mood.
Kelly Marie and Scarlett are already over there waiting for us.
Put Mr Bell in the interview room and get him some tea.
Oh, and nobody is to talk to Mr Bell apart from me.
-So you found him, then?
-I can see why you made DCI.
I would like to be present when you interview Bell.
-I bet you would!
-This is my case.
Look, Bell is scum. You can't trust a word he says.
He sees a chance to stitch up a cop, he'll lie to make it happen.
Of course, right now, he's thinking about compensation,
and then there's the PR...
This is a big can of worms.
I hope you know what you're doing.
I know you've been having a hard time, and...
..maybe we haven't talked about it that much.
We haven't talked about it at all.
Yeah, well, sometimes...
..it's not good to dwell on things.
So we should just ignore them?
No. Not ignore, but...
I know how much this girl meant to you...
Her name's Alice.
Yeah, and you were fond of her.
I wasn't fond of her.
I was IN LOVE with her.
Love is complicated, Christina.
What's complicated about it?
You're still so young.
And what's my age got to do with it?
It's easy to be swept up by other people.
They can make us believe that we're things that we're not.
You think Alice tricked me into falling in love with her?
No, not tricked, but...
..maybe you were pushed a little?
You are unbelievable.
Well, how else can you explain all this?
It can't have been love.
Why don't you just come out and say it? You're ashamed of me!
That's not true.
Yes, it is. Me being gay embarrasses you, just admit it.
Nicole might have been a bitch,
but at least she was honest about how she feels.
-She was a coward and a bully!
Well, she never made me feel as bad as you did just there.
FIRE ALARM BEEPS
What the hell's that?
Fire alarm. Out, now.
I'll take care of him. On you go.
I don't know what's going on, but if you think I'm coughing up...
Shut up! Listen. You're going to do exactly what I say.
Do you understand?
DO YOU UNDERSTAND?!
Where's Bell? Where is he?!
-Aiden Bell? Did you bring him out?
-It's all right, Ma'am. I've got him.
What do you think you're doing?
It's a fire alarm, we have to evacuate.
-What did he say to you?
I don't know what you're trying to pull, but it won't work.
Oh, looks like it was a false alarm.
Take him in.
So, now that you're the big hero,
are you going to get yourself a costume?
Aye, a mask and a cape,
-and your pants over your trousers!
Right, you two. Less of the cheek. And anyway, he doesnae wear pants.
Oh, here's Edward.
-Dad, what are you doing here?
-Robbie called me.
Well, it is a family celebration, after all.
I've been trying to call you.
Yeah. Things happening at work.
-We should talk.
-Right, before any of that happens,
I've got a wee announcement I'd like to make myself.
Oh, when are you due?
Funny(!) No, I'd like to say something about my father-in-law.
He's only been with us for a few weeks,
but I want you to know how much we've enjoyed having you here.
-Now, Edward likes his music...
-OK, Robbie, that's enough.
So, as a belated welcome gift...
something for you enjoy it even more, Edward.
Only the best for you.
Thank you, Robbie. Very thoughtful.
You think you're so smart, don't you?
You put him up to it.
Put who up to what?
Bell told you what really happened? Damn it!
Look, I tried to warn you, ma'am.
I can still get you for cutting the deal with him.
Absolutely. I hold my hands up.
But it was done with good intentions.
-I was trying to protect one of my own officers.
It's true. Cooper is a good cop. I mean, you know that.
You rate him.
I cut the deal to stop Bell making an assault claim, and it worked.
Or it was working, until you...
Still, we all make mistakes, eh?
So. What now?
So, you're sure that's what happened?
-So, were you impressed?
About how I solved our wee music problem with your dad.
Oh, yes, the headphones.
Clever, eh? I decided to think outside the box.
-It came to me in a flash.
You hear that, Scarlett? I'm subtle!
Oh, aye. Two peas in a pod, you and me!
-Can we talk now?
-Cole came to see me.
-What did she want?
-Asking about the case.
You need to be careful. She's a smart one.
Yeah, well, it's not me she wants.
Are you sure about that?
HE SIGHS Yes, boss?
I admit I'm not good at this.
I'd be the same if it was about a boy.
But I do want to understand.
You know when we're out for dinner - me, you and Bob -
and there's always someone staring at us?
They don't stare.
OK, sometimes they stare.
And what are they staring at?
Because they're rude.
Yeah, but what are they staring at?
They're staring at Bob.
And then, after a bit, they start to look at you as if to say,
"Why is she even with him?"
-So, why ARE you with him?
Because I love him.
And you can't help that.
Even if he is big and clumsy and orders double puddings,
you still love him.
And if they told you to stop loving Bob,
what would you say?
I'd say, "I can't."
So, now do you understand?
-Thanks very much.
I'll get straight on to the hospital and have him referred to Audiology.
Do you think it's serious?
I'd prefer to wait for tests but, yes,
I'd say Callum has significant reduction in his left ear.
How did we miss this?
It happens. Even the experts can get this kind of thing wrong.
I mean, he's not been talking much,
but we just assumed that...with Peru and the language barrier...
Plus, it's sometimes hard to get a word in at our place,
-if you know what I mean.
-You'll have to tell Kelly Marie.
Aye, that's not going to be easy.
She'll likely blame herself.
I could have a word with her, if you want.
No. It's better coming from me.
-Try not to worry. Bye.
What's HE doing here?
Not so smart now, are you?
You want to tell me what's going on?
DC Cooper, you need to come with me.
-I'd like to see the DCI first.
-NOW, DC Cooper.
-Mind telling me what this is about?
-Take a seat.
DC Cooper. Right now, this is just a conversation,
but your responses may determine
whether formal charges are brought against you.
Do you know Mr Aiden Bell?
No. What is this?
Mr Bell has made some very serious allegations against you.
-Well, I don't know him.
-I'd like to state for the record
that DC Cooper is well aware of Mr Bell, and has been for some time.
It would help your case if you answered truthfully, DC Cooper.
Now, did you visit Mr Bell on 2nd January and assault him?
What the hell is this?!
Did you assault Mr Bell?
I suspected Mr Bell of committing a serious offence,
so I went round there to question him.
Sorry, what offence?
Possession with intent.
I went to arrest him, and he resisted and became violent.
So you defended yourself?
As best I could, yes.
But you didn't have a warrant to arrest Mr Bell.
I had reason to believe that Mr Bell was in possession of drugs and...
I'm sorry, but I have to interject again.
DC Cooper believed Mr Bell assaulted his father.
-Is this true?
-What are you doing?!
Don't make this any harder, Will.
I need a response, DC Cooper.
I'd like to speak with you alone, please.
-Are you sure that's necessary?
-Damn right, I'm sure.
Look, I don't know exactly what's going on here...
Your boss is screwing you - that's what's going on here.
I asked you to tell me, if there was anything I needed to know
about this case. But you chose to keep your mouth shut.
I couldn't very well tell you I beat the hell out of a suspect, could I?
Right. So you DID assault him?
Look, the point is, Donald is using me to get out of the laddering.
He's not TRYING. He's done it.
I had one shot. But it had to be watertight.
It had to be clean.
And this? You and Bell, you blew it out the water.
But Bell is just one case. There's more laddering - I can help you.
Oh, right, the DC who's just admitted to a violent assault
is going to help me convict an officer
with 20 years' impeccable service?! And on top of that,
I have to tell the DCC
-that the cop
-put up for a commendation has been suspended!
What? You can't! You can't suspend me!
You just admitted to beating up Aiden Bell. I think I can.
I told you this would happen, didn't I?
To think I nearly had him.
Instead, all I have is you.
Robert Bradshaw, 39.
Don't know much about him, but we know he's operating on our patch.
-Cooper, as you can see, we're in the middle of a briefing.
I'd like to talk, outside.
Only person you should be talking to is your union rep.
Right, back to Bradshaw.
You set me up.
I really think you should go home.
So you can set me up again?
Aiden Bell was YOUR mistake.
He was always coming back to haunt you.
Funny how he just happened to turn up today, isn't it?
Just your bad luck, I guess.
-OK. We're done here.
-You screwed me over!
Get him out of my station!
where were we?
Husband, this is the third message that I'm leaving you.
You're missing your own party, which is sad - even for you.
Right, I'll just see you at the house.
So, what's happened to the hero?
Aye, where's my streetwise Hercules?
What can I say? He's dedicated.
-Did he say anything?
You're not going, are you?
I promised I'd make dinner.
You should finish your drink first.
Thank you. But I'd really better go.
Aye. Me an' all.
-Want to be up the road for my man getting in.
-See you, darlin'.
Right, Eddie. Take a wing.
I can manage.
What do you think? One more?
Aye, why not? Just the one.
Oh! Just in time to buy us a drink.
-You seen Jimmy lately?
-Not since this morning. How?
-You know about Cal?
-What about Cal?
Oh, the wanderer returns!
Thanks for leaving me in the pub with your dad, by the way.
Where is he?
He went for a wee lie-down. Low alcohol tolerance. Bless him.
Oh, I said I'd watch his spaghetti.
Anyway, he was actually all right once you left.
He was quite chatty on it. He was telling us all about the criminals
he used to represent back in the day.
He was totally made up with those headphones.
It was really sweet, actually. I think we've turned a corner.
I wouldn't bet on it.
See? That's the attitude that I was telling the lassies about.
You don't want me and him to get on.
It freaks you out to think of us two having a relationship
independent of you, beyond your control.
You just need to let go once in a while -
you might find people surprise you.
I just want you to relax.
There! Is that relaxed enough for you?!
Robbie, I'm sorry, I...
I, er, I got suspended today.
Donald - he stitched me up.
Do you hear what I say?
He, er, stitched me up. I lost my job.
Please, just say something.
No. Wait. I said I was sorry, OK?
-Don't look at me like that.
-How am I supposed to look at you?
You know that's not me.
Go. If I'm really that terrible, then why stick around, eh?
Go on. There's the door.
Probably for the best anyway, right?
-So, you're back, then?
-Dad, get back in the bedroom!
-I need to...
-What the hell's going on?
-I said get back in the bedroom!
DOOR CLOSES Robbie...
Good lad, eat it all up.
What's wrong with him?
Nothing's wrong with him, he's just having his tea.
Lenny said there was something up with his ears.
-It's not definite, but he might have some hearing problems.
-What kind of problems?
Miriam thinks he might have some loss on his left side.
For God's sake, Jimmy! You have the boy for one day, and now he's deaf!
-Scarlett, he's not deaf.
-Well, he was fine when YOU got him.
No, he wisnae. He's had it for a while.
-It's just, we've not noticed.
-Trust you to be the first to notice!
-I'm a terrible parent.
-No, you're not, darlin'.
-I should've realised.
-The doc says it's easy to miss.
And, anyway, he's gonnae need more tests to confirm.
I told him to put his shoes on this morning.
And see when he didn't, I just thought he was acting up. I bawled at him.
I'm always on at him, Jimmy. Nagging him,
telling him he doesn't listen. I was beginning to wonder that...
Listen to me.
The wee man's as sharp as a tack, all right?
-And now we know what the problem is, we can help him.
-Course we can.
I'll stick the kettle on.
Robbie, it's me. I need to know where you are.
Just give me a call.
Donald's played you for a mug.
Not now, Dad.
You should've seen it coming.
I thought he had my back.
Grow up. Nobody has your back.
You look out for yourself - always.
Like YOU do, I suppose.
Hey, don't get ratty with me.
I'm not the one who screwed you over.
That's not going to help, is it?
This has always been your problem. Too soft.
Too busy trying to help people.
You don't see they're just waiting to stitch you up.
The only reason why I got stitched up is because I decided to help YOU.
Oh, so this is MY fault?!
Well, let's face it. You were the one who wanted Bell sorted.
I never said, "Go round there and punch his lights out."
No, you never SAID it.
This is YOUR doing. You went round there and you lost control.
I was trying to help YOU.
I don't need help.
Huh. Says the man living in my house, eating my food.
Oh, so, I'm not welcome, is that it? Maybe I'll just leave, then.
That's not what I said.
Dad, best you just go to bed, eh?
-What about dinner?
-I said go to bed.
JOHNNY CASH: # I hurt myself today
# To see if I still feel
# I focus on the pain
# The only thing that's real
# The needle tears a hole
# The old familiar sting
# Try to kill it all away
# But I remember everything
# What have I become
# My sweetest friend?
# Everyone I know
# Goes away in the end
# And you could have it all
# My empire of dirt
# I will let you down
# I will make you hurt. #
I was scared you'd gone.
This is as far as I got.
Can't even leave properly.
I don't want you to leave.
It's been a bad day.
I should never hit you. I just...
I don't know what happens, I just lose control. I'm sorry.
And not for the first time.
I know you've got things to worry about, but..
It's no excuse.
I love you so much.
I'm so sorry.
Let's go home.
# If I could start again
# A million miles away
# I would keep myself
# I would find a way. #
Raymond, you stink of booze.
It's an outrage!
You got the court's decision.
Once a week?
I'm going to see my boy once a week?
You don't mind if Grandpa comes
to see the doctor with you, do you, pal?
-I don't think..
-I don't think you should be telling
-the person paying for the consultation what they should be doing.
-Ma, leave it.
-I thought Molly's was worth about 100.
-So give me that.
Nah, 50's about right for cash.
