'Michael, he touched a lot of lives.'
He was a wonderful doctor, and he was a good man.
There's a lot going on out there that I don't know about.
Maybe I should've called.
I do not want this on my patch.
Get that down to forensics pronto.
I want the SOCOs to tear that place apart.
They find anything that links it to Murdoch, anything at all,
I want to know about it.
MUSIC: "I Get The Sweetest Feeling" by Jackie Wilson
RADIO: # The closer you get The better you look, baby...
# You turn on your smile
# I feel my heart go wild
# I'm like a child With a brand-new toy
# And I get the Sweetest feeling... #
Yeah, yeah it is...
Sorry, I need some caffeine.
Oh, Sleeping Beauty.
You look great...for your age.
Stuart still sound, yeah?
Yeah, he is now, he had me up twice during the night, the wee...
-Gonnae you get that, eh?
What, like this?
The postman will have seen worse.
I'm warning you.
What? What is it?
Sorry, sorry! I've done it again. Am I too early?
It's just, it's my day off, but I wake up at six anyway,
so I went and got you these.
Right, well... I suppose you better come in.
-Are you sure? I can come back later.
-No, no. Come in. Come in.
Here, put these in water. Give me five minutes.
Oh, you shall go to the ball!
Are you not going to be late for your work?
Yeah. I've got Stella to open up. Right...
-My turn to get all dolled up. See you later, Craig.
-They're... They're lovely.
And I'm sorry for turning up out of the blue like that again.
And seeing me in that state.
What state? You looked lovely.
No more surprises, please.
-Maybe one more?
What are you doing tonight, are you free?
Um... Let me see... Yes.
Do you like opera?
I like Il Divo.
Great, Carmen's on in town. I've reserved us tickets.
-You don't sound very sure.
No, I'm... I'm delighted, honestly.
Carmen, it's a great story. It's a real...
-It's a real weepy. You'll love it.
-I'm sure I will.
BABY BABBLES Look, I'll let you get on.
And I can go and pick up those tickets.
I have to be in my office soon,
and I've still got to get Stuart up...
And not be bothered by some dork on your doorstep at daybreak?
A dork with flowers is always nice.
The opera starts at eight, so, shall we meet at the Ship
-at, say, seven for a drink, and then head from there?
What is she doing?
OK, I've got a warrant to search the premises...
What's going on here?
Detective Sergeant Grant.
Oh, yeah? What the hell do you think you're doing?
I have here a warrant to search your premises.
You're making a big mistake here, Sergeant.
We would also like you to accompany us to the station for questioning.
Really? Any particular reason?
We are conducting enquiries into a murder
and we have reason to believe you can help us with those enquiries.
-And if I refuse?
-Refusing's not an option.
-You are entitled to...
-A lawyer under the blah, blah, blah.
-Yeah, I know the drill.
A word outside, Sergeant.
What, you undercover today?
Didn't expect to see you today, sir.
-What the hell is going on here?
-You recall the burnt-out car
that was found with a body in it, up Barlanark way?
-What about it?
-It was an Amber Cabs taxi, sir.
And that warrants turning this place over?
The cab showed signs of...
More importantly, why is this happening without my knowledge?
Su-Superintendent Cole's orders, sir.
Perhaps you should speak to her.
Get on with it, Sergeant.
Take him to the car.
Have a word with him, did we? On the same page now?
Come on, in you get, Murdoch.
I didn't know anything about it.
Will you be coming back to the station, sir?
-I just thought with it being your day off...
-I'll follow you. Let's go.
Did you take these down?
Without consulting me?
I thought it might be a bit upsetting for you to...
Yeah, well, it was, seeing them dumped there like that.
-It was till I had a chance to speak to you.
-I'll put them back.
I'll keep them in my room.
So, have you spoken to Conor?
-He text me.
-How is he?
Fine, yeah. Says he'll video chat me in a few days.
Oh, I'd love to speak to him, too.
Nic, you know, you can talk to me,
any time, about anything.
I'm so sorry, I've actually got an appointment.
The bank manager wants to see me.
So, life goes on, does it?
So, what, you can just get on with things,
and put my dad right to the back of your mind?
Nic, I can't.
I think about him all the time and it breaks my heart...
What, like you broke his?
I'd better go.
-Why wasn't I informed of this?
-Speed was of the essence.
So, what charges have they been brought in on?
-Suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
-Who's the victim?
One Derek McSween. Identified by his dental records.
So you think Lenny Murdoch and Billy Kennedy are in cahoots?
Is that so far-fetched?
-They're a different breed.
-You can't say it's not possible.
No, but... Look, I know Murdoch.
I have a simpler take.
Murdoch is a known criminal and nothing can be ruled out.
What corroborative evidence is there?
Earlier today DS Grant received a forensic report
on the burned-out car.
It links the DNA of Kennedy, Murdoch and a Gareth O'Connor to the scene.
With respect, ma'am, is that really enough?
DCI Donald, we have them at our disposal, we can rattle their cages.
Let's try and do that to the very best of our abilities, shall we?
You clearly still have a problem, DCI Donald.
I'm sorry, but I can't help feel my status is being undermined here.
-When I saw DS Grant...
I'm simply acting on information given to DS Grant earlier today.
But if I'm kept out the loop, what am I supposed to think?
That you have good officers capable of acting on new intel,
and that delegation isn't necessarily a bad thing.
But in order to delegate successfully,
you have to be in full possession of the facts.
Full possession of the facts hasn't helped us much in the past.
What do you mean?
-How long have you been trying to nail Murdoch?
-Longer than I'd like.
No! Longer than is remotely feasible, would be more accurate.
What? What are you insinuating?
I'm stating quite plainly that in my opinion,
we have never brought the full force of the law down on this man.
God knows, I have tried.
I've asked the team to assemble for a briefing at 10:15.
You're welcome to attend.
Cooper. You couldn't call me, then?
-I was told not to.
DS Grant. She said you weren't to be disturbed on your day off.
Anyone else talk to you?
I just got my orders from DS Grant to pick up Kennedy, that's all.
So, is there anything else I need to know?
I take it you're going to be at the briefing?
Yeah, yeah, c'mon, let's go.
We're all aware of Lenny Murdoch and his operations
and no-one would like to nail him more than I would...
-I see you've started.
-Conscious of our detention limits, ma'am.
From today DS Grant will be in charge of the investigation
into the murder of Derek McSween.
DS Grant has been across this case
with Glasgow North from the beginning.
-Continuity will be important.
-I see no need...
DS Grant, I'd therefore like you
to conduct the interview with Lenny Murdoch.
DC Cooper, you will take Kennedy. OK?
A word, ma'am.
Derek McSween's burnt remains were found in an Amber Cabs taxi...
DS Grant has an open mind.
And I don't?
Look, I am willing to be proved wrong,
I just think it unlikely that Murdoch would be involved
with somebody like Kennedy, let alone be an accessory in a murder.
And why would that be, DCI Donald?
He might be a died-in-the-wool crook,
but he's not an animal like Billy Kennedy.
You have a very singular take on Mr Murdoch's character.
I just don't think we should bracket them together.
Having taken over this murder investigation from Glasgow North,
we must also remember that our station will now be under scrutiny.
-It hasn't escaped the attention of our superiors
that Lenny Murdoch still operates with seeming impunity.
With respect, ma'am, I hardly think impunity...
Perception is all, DCI Donald.
I'd still like to conduct an interview.
Oh, I think you and I observing will prove far more useful.
Is that an order?
It can be.
Talk about choosing your moment. Must be his police training.
-You know, it's like he's put you under police surveillance
for all this time before he makes his move.
What are you talkin' about?
Well, it's no' exactly been a whirlwind romance, has it?
Especially when it was obvious to everyone in Shieldinch
that you fancied each other.
Cheek! He has been exercising caution.
Because, like me, Craig has been hurt before.
Well, he's throwing caution to the wind now, hasn't he?
-He certainly is.
-And the opera? I didn't think he was that posh.
He's not. I think he's just trying to impress me.
Well, delivering flowers first thing. It's very romantic!
Yeah, it is.
Oh, but if he sees me looking like a dog's dinner again...
Well, there'll be no more flowers or opera.
He should consider himself lucky going out with a babe like you.
Oh, he's just...
He's got charm, and... a sense of humour, and...
when Raymond had his meltdown with Stuart, he was so supportive.
Aye. Aye, that's true.
I've got no illusions, I'm just determined to have a good time.
-Well, you deserve it.
-Yeah, I do.
Oh, it's been a long time since I felt like this.
And that's without the sex!
I'll have you know that Craig and I
are looking for a mature, adult relationship.
You mean, it's your mind he's after?
-'I understand one of your drivers
'got his car nicked last week.'
Is that what this is about?
You no' taking community policing a bit far?
'The remains of one Derek McSween...'
and the burnt-out car.
We found your DNA at the scene.
My DNA? In one of my own cars?
My God, it's an open-and-shut case, innit?
This has gangland hit written all over it.
Yeah, if you say so.
How do you account for Billy Kennedy's
and your boy Gareth's DNA also being there?
I'll take a wild guess. They hired a taxi.
We know you have a connection with Kennedy.
A connection? What, like we support the same football team?
-You know what I'm talking about.
-No, I don't think I do.
Well, let me make it clear. We have him next door.
So, for the tape, you're denying this connection?
OK, I admit it.
We go to the same Zumba class, but I don't want that getting out,
OK, because I've got an image to think of.
-'We have all day, you know.'
'Well, 12 hours from when you picked me up, but who's counting?
'Why you doing this anyway? What's this all about?'
So, no connection to Kennedy?
Where's your boss man? In there, is he?
Sending a wee lassie to do a man's job?
Nae offence, darling.
Derek McSween had been acting as an informant for the past year.
He reported to the Drug Enforcement Division.
So what do I care?
We've been liaising with the drugs squad.
There's quite a portfolio on Kennedy,
his operations and his associates.
-Are you going to charge me with anything?
-Not at this stage.
-Good, then I'll be for the off...
-We're not finished.
-Oh, we are.
-Would you like me to call your lawyer?
Why? The innocent have nothing to fear.
For the benefit of the tape, DS Grant is leaving the room.
-What do you think?
-Leave him to sweat.
I'm not sure we're going to get much more out of him.
Let's use up our time.
So is there a file from this informant?
What intel's he provided?
As I said earlier, DS Grant is across all this.
I'm sure she'll bring you up to speed.
That's not answering my question.
Do you think you're entitled to interrogate me, DCI Donald?
But this is what happens when you jump the gun.
And what would you have done?
I would have waited and built a better case.
I feel bringing Murdoch in has been very informative.
You saw how he reacted at the mention of "drug squad"
and "Kennedy's associates"?
-Can't say I've seen anything useful so far.
Derek McSween reported that he thought the gang had an inside man.
-What do you mean, inside man?
-A police officer.
We don't know for sure, but we need to be vigilant.
What do you think?
It wouldn't be the first time a cop's been bought,
but not in this station.
Are you sure?
Let's hope you're right.
Right, this is -
or rather WAS -
Derek McSween, otherwise known as Del.
A police informant we think you murdered.
You know him, right?
Oh, come on, Billy. It's a simple confirmation or denial for the tape.
I don't know nothing.
Oh, you don't know nothing? Oh.
Does that include NOT knowing Derek McSween?
-So, you do know him?
Just for the tape, no comment means no comment.
He was murdered in a car that carries your DNA.
And the DNA of one Lenny Murdoch and Gareth O'Connor.
You were in this together, weren't you?
Gareth, is looking like a scared little boy in the holding cell.
You think he's got your back?
You must think I'm stupid.
Come on, Billy. We're on to you, and you know it.
You really think you're going to pick up in Shieldinch
where your son left off, is that it?
You won't be able to breathe. We'll be all over you like a rash.
I recommend you take this chance now.
Don't wait for one of your accomplices to drop you in it.
Are we done?
So, Gareth, how do you account for your DNA being in that car?
-Kennedy's pointing the finger at you, Gareth.
-You comfortable with that?
So who's been coaching you, Gareth?
You're young, don't throw away your life on these guys.
Do you think you owe them something?
This is your chance to get out. Why don't you take it?
-Do you take sugar in your tea?
I'm sweet enough.
I was actually hoping to see you.
I really enjoyed the other night.
Yeah, me too. I got your text, thanks.
I just thought I wanted to see you in person.
Listen, I'm the one who should be grateful.
It's been ages since I ate out in good company.
I still feel bad about you paying.
Like I said, we can go somewhere really expensive
-when it's your turn.
-That's what I wanted to ask.
Could I buy you dinner tonight?
Yeah, that'd be great!
Somewhere really special, I hope?
-Do you like seafood?
No, I booked the table at the Lobster Creel.
That's really posh. I've never been.
You'll love it.
Oh, Greg! I'm sorry, I can't!
What is it?
I've already promised Eileen I'll look after the wee man.
How about Friday night then?
-I'll pick you up at seven.
Right, I... I'll really look forward to that.
You need to remember Murdoch's a very tricky customer.
Oh, I could see that this morning, sir.
Which is what concerns me
about this directive from Superintendent Cole.
She is a very able officer,
but she doesn't have the street-smart, if you like,
-that you and I have.
-Perhaps not, but...
I still have to report directly to her, sir.
Of course, of course!
I'm not trying to countermand Superintendent Cole,
just as your commanding officer I would expect any intel you glean
-to be run past me first.
I've been tracking Murdoch for a long time,
I can spot his false trails a mile off.
So it'll save us time in the long run.
No doubt, sir.
So, we're clear about the chain of command here?
-Good. That'll be all.
Christina, it meant a lot seeing you at the funeral...
after everything that happened.
What you're going through, I can't imagine.
Everything else pales.
I don't deserve you.
It's amazing how nice people've been, actually.
Stuff like this makes you see what really matters, I guess.
I don't know. She's not facing up to things, I don't think.
She'll be putting on a brave face...for you.
D'you think so?
Yeah. She's suffering, too.
Don't be hard on her.
I think I might've been already.
Hey. I'm glad I caught you.
I'm really sorry about this morning.
The things I said were pretty horrible
and not really how I feel.
Please, don't worry about it, Nic.
And, actually, I kind of would like to talk.
Course, come on.
I'm beginning to realise now, at a time like this,
how important your friends and family are,
more so than ever.
I've been so selfish. I'm sorry.
You're grieving, Nic.
Yeah, but so are you. How can I not...?
Nicole. It's OK.
I was thinking it might be quite nice to get away for a bit.
You know my dad used to really like Loch Awe and the fishing up there?
Thought it'd be good to take some time out and go up,
I don't know, plant a tree in his name or something.
-That sounds perfect.
-Gabe can come, too,
if it helps you get through.
OK. Well, if you don't mind, I'd quite like to say to him myself.
Go for it.
So what's the plan now?
We'll have to let them go,
but I think they'll have got a strong message -
-we're on their case.
-Well, I hope so.
Did the search of Murdoch's premises turn up anything?
-Not as yet.
-Well, I can assure you,
we'll be doing everything we can to solve this murder.
I'm happy to concentrate on Kennedy while DS Grant targets Murdoch.
You entering into the spirit of cooperation, DCI Donald?
It's what good police work's based on, ma'am.
-Keep me posted.
Doug. It's Craig Donald.
How's life in Glasgow North treating you?
Ha! How're the kids?
You're joking. Aaw.
Listen, mate, I need a favour.
You better swear to me you knew nothing about this.
I've not even spoken to Kennedy. I didn't even know he was back.
Well, he is. You get a message to him, you tell him we need to meet.
And not around here.
-Can't you call him?
-Phone? Too risky.
-Sorry, I just thought...
-Don't. Just get the message to him?
PHONE RINGS Aye, OK.
It's me. We need to meet.
Rearrange it. Don't argue.
-My turn to surprise you.
-Ha-ha, yeah, you certainly got me there.
So, do you always do your opera invites before you do raids?
Ah, well... I knew I was meeting my officers at Amber Cabs,
so I didn't see any problem with...
You don't have to explain. I was just joking.
I know, I know!
Look, I need to be getting back. I need to get back to the station.
OK, I won't hold you up. So did you get the tickets OK?
-For the opera?
Oh, yeah, yeah! Just been into town. Got them right here.
Great. Well, I'll see you tonight.
-Looking forward to it.
-See you later.
Where'd he go?
I don't know.
Did you see the DCI and Murdoch
talk at any point during this morning's raid?
DCI Donald got Murdoch into the car, but I was right behind them.
I didn't see anything. Only I...
I did sense an atmosphere, but that could just be
because the DCI wasn't across what was going on.
Do you think Murdoch look betrayed?
There's a danger of reading too much into a look, ma'am.
If he is using Murdoch as an informer,
is that necessarily a problem?
I'd like to know what Murdoch is getting out of it.
DCI Donald hasn't applied for informant funds in the last year.
You think they have an understanding of some sort?
I don't know what they have exactly,
but I think we need to keep closer tabs on both of them from now on.
You need to tell me what the hell is going on here,
cos I can't... I will not get you off with murder.
Like I told the lassie earlier, I know nothing about a body in a taxi.
-How do I know...
-Do you think I'm going to get involved
-with Kennedy offing somebody?
-Do you think I'm going to cover you?
Covering me's exactly what you're supposed to be doing.
Oh, despite the fact you lied to me before about your heroin stash?
Look, I've spent the morning with my boss trying to get the heat off you,
I've got my neck on the line here for you!
Well, that's all very touching,
-but we both know you're protecting you, no' me.
-What do you expect?
This arrangement was never about heroin dealing and murder!
But I'm still supposed to trust you?
Oh, and I'm supposed to trust you? My place got turned over.
-What, you setting me up?
-You saw what happened!
Did I look like a guy who knew what was going on?
-So you're a good actor.
-I didn't know, OK?
You must think my head's buttoned up the back.
You're the chief inspector and nobody tells you anything? Oh, Sure.
So you're either mucking me about or you've lost control of your station.
When did I become a hit man, hmm?
Burning guys in motors? Come on!
So tell me about Kennedy.
What's to tell?
I've not seen him for weeks. We don't move in the same circles.
Make sure you keep it that way.
Lenny, he is a loose cannon.
Tell me something I don't know.
Hiya. What can I get you?
Can I have a black coffee, please, Stella.
-Mind if I join you?
-Well, I don't like to presume.
-Since when have you been so polite?
I've been working on it.
-So, I ran into Nicole.
It's a great idea.
Yeah, it is. But it won't be painless.
So are you going back to work?
Not sure I can face it yet.
It's early days.
Thank you, Gabriel, for all your support.
Look, it's nothing, anybody would've done...
Just shut it and learn to accept a thank you for once, will you?
And it wasn't just nothing.
You've gone through hell as well,
but you've still managed to look out for everyone else.
I'm really hoping this trip away can help us mend things.
Yeah, me too.
And Nicole seems to have turned a corner, though.
Yeah, I think she has.
-But, we let's not get ahead of ourselves.
-Hi. How's things?
Not great, but what can you expect?
Sorry, stupid question.
I know what you must be going through.
No, you don't.
You're right. I don't.
-Gareth, what do you want from me?
-I don't want anything from you.
I just like you, you know?
I don't get it. I'm three months pregnant.
That doesn't stop me liking you.
Obviously not, that's what I'm worried about.
Look, I've got a lot of stuff on my mind just now.
-You don't need any more aggravation. I get it.
I just need some space.
And then maybe after a while we'll be able to think about other things.
That's not a problem. You call me when you feel like it.
No, sorry, look, I didn't mean it like that.
I'll see you soon, OK?
KNOCK AT DOOR Come.
-DCI Donald, I'd like to run something past you.
These are copies of Lenny Murdoch's phone records.
There's a number here that crops up again and again.
Take a look.
Uh... No, no. Can't say I do.
I'll check it against our file on Murdoch.
I already have. There's no match.
-Have you had occasion to call up his phone records before?
Em... I'm sure we have.
I couldn't find any official record of it having been done.
Maybe that was something I got DC Cooper to do. I'll check.
Anyway, on looking over the timeline of events
leading up to the heroin house raid two weeks ago,
I noticed an interesting cross-over with these phone records.
This number that crops up repeatedly?
It called Murdoch just minutes before the raid.
Could be a coincidence.
-Or a tip-off?
It's possible, don't you think?
It's possible, I suppose, ma'am.
Maybe my insider theory isn't so fanciful after all.
-No, no. You hang on to those.
Let's do everything we can to find out who owns that phone.
I'll get straight on to that.
Will, I need to see you in my office.
Five minutes? Great.
So they're on to you.
Look at you! You must be guilty!
No, no, no, it's nothing...
-Lenny. I'm joking!
-I know, I know!
I heard about all the police outside your office this morning.
-What was all that about?
-One of my cabs got nicked.
So they sent a whole division over?
I know. Total overkill, eh? They watch too much telly.
-Have they found the cab?
-Yeah, yeah. Burnt out.
Really? Do they know who did it?
What, the Keystone cops here? Nae chance.
It'll be a couple of youngsters. Joyriding, you know?
They like to burn it out after they've used up the petrol.
Hey, it's quite exciting, though, isn't it?
I know, the Bronx has nothin' on us, eh?
Do you fancy a drink later?
Today's not a good day.
Can I ask you a question?
Am I being too forward?
No. No, no, not at all.
I'm just up to my neck in it, you know? Um...I'll call you.
OK. See ya.
That's the number there. You recognise it?
Don't think so, no.
Do me a favour - check it out, will you?
But report to me, not back to Cole, yeah?
These are Lenny Murdoch's phone records.
-It can't be like before.
I'm not willing to be caught in the middle again, sir.
It's just some phone records, Cooper.
And you help keep her off my back.
That's not what I'm talking about.
Since my suspension, I have to be seen to be above board.
There's nothing underhand in this,
I will tell Superintendent Cole you're looking into it.
I'm not going to be dragged into anything...
-Anything that puts me in a position
-where I could be suspended again.
-How would that happen?
If I find out something about the phone numbers and don't report it.
Looking after number one, eh?
Yeah. Just like you did when I got suspended
Ah-ha! We both know you got yourself into that one.
Right, and I'm not going to make the same mistake again.
So you're refusing an order, Constable?
I'm not refusing an order, I'm making a judgement call.
And I think it's best for the both of us that I decline this task.
In other words, I'm on my own.
On this one, sir, yeah.
-You're not contemplating an action of your own, are you, Cooper?
Aside from this, I'm here to carry out your orders, sir.
Good to know. That'll be all, Constable.
Upstairs. Five minutes.
-You look gorgeous!
-Hot date, aye?
-None of your business.
-White wine for the lady, please, Stevie?
-Aye, all right.
-He's not here, is he?
Good. Want to get the first one of them down my neck.
Oh, I'm nervous.
Why are you nervous? You've had drinks with him before?
I know, but that was different. This is a date.
With the flowers and everything this morning, it's like we're...
-Getting more serious?
-There you go.
Thanks, I'll need it.
Well, a couple more of these down your neck
-and you'll be up for anything.
-You stop that!
Right, c'mon. Let's take the weight of those heels.
You don't think this is a bit much, do you?
No, are you kidding? He's not going to take his hands off you.
-You'll distract him from the opera.
-Craig's not like that.
"Craig's not like that!" Aye, right. Tell me that tomorrow!
Going to have to have a word with that tenant of mine.
He's got a place like a cowp. Drink?
So what's so urgent?
These were taken yesterday, Kennedy...and you.
They don't mean anything.
Don't insult my intelligence. Are you two working together?
Did you get involved in that heroin deal
-a few weeks back because of him?
-I already telt you, no.
Don't lie to me. Drugs are his thing.
It's too much of a coincidence.
All right. I met him the other day in the street.
We done a one-off deal a couple of weeks ago.
-It was better you didn't know.
-Better I didn't know?!
Well, look at the state of you now.
If any of my team get a hold of this...
You better make sure they don't.
What do you want me to do! That's twice you've lied to me!
I told you weeks ago - I can't help you if you're involved with Kennedy.
You've no choice.
Aye, I do. I'm out.
This arrangement is over.
This arrangement is over when I say it's over.
It's over, Lenny.
We are going after Billy Kennedy.
-If the trail leads to your door then...
Then you've brought it on yourself.
-I suppose I could say the same thing about you.
PHONE: 'I've got my neck on the line here for you.'
'Well, that's all very touching.
'But we both know you're protecting you, not me.'
Not bad eh? This one's my favourite.
'This arrangement was never about heroin dealing and murder!
'But I'm still supposed to trust you?'
Great wee things them, aren't they?
You know the best thing? I can send this wherever I want,
by text or email, to anybody I want.
So it's like I said.
This is over when I say it's over.
19:21, he leaves the flat above the Tall Ship pub.
Hi. Where are you right now?
I'm... I'm still at the station, sir.
-OK, I'll see you there in 20 minutes.
It's just gone straight to message.
He must've got called away on a job.
Yeah, I suppose so. These things happen, don't they?
Aye. I'm sure he'll call you soon.
Yeah. Well, I think we've blown the opera though.
You could go to the pictures. There's still time yet.
Yeah...we'll do something.
It's my shout. Do you want another drink?
Kelly-Marie, you don't have to hang around, I'm fine.
It's no bother, I'm enjoying your chat.
-What are you doing?
Have you got something to tell me?
About a hit you arranged?
Are you giving me into a row?
What is it? Just slipped your mind, did it?
The other day you toasted somebody?
-Lenny, you're not my keeper.
-You're damn right I'm not,
but I'm covering for you and what do I get in return?
You torch my cabs? What, are you nuts?
Aye, probably, but needs must.
I was doin' you a favour. The guy was a grass...
Aye, aye, I heard that spiel down the cop shop.
How much did he know?
Why my cabs? Are you trying to wind me up?
It keeps us in the clear.
Who'd be stupid enough to use a cab that's got their DNA all over it?
That's what your lawyer would tell them.
-And that's it, is it?
-Aye, that's it.
No other reason?
Don't ever try and play me, Billy, do you hear?
There was a problem. It got sorted.
If me and you are going to work together,
you're going to need to tone it down.
I'll bear that in mind.
If you want to talk, do it through Gareth. And no phones.
Right. We need to go.
Well, just the one for the road before I go, if that's OK.
I'm glad I caught you,
I thought it was only fair to give you a heads-up as soon as possible.
That's great, sir.
I've gone some way to remedying the situation this morning.
I had a word with Lenny Murdoch, managed to get him to talk.
We've got him rattled.
I asked him for some information on Kennedy and I get the feeling
he'll feed us some crumbs to try and keep us at bay.
I will have to report to Superintendent Cole.
Of course you will. She must be kept informed.
Lenny'll be useful to us.
If we play the long game, he'll help us get Kennedy
-And then we'll get him, too.
So. How's it gone today?
-Well, I followed Donald to the Tall Ship.
I knew it. I knew he'd go running to Murdoch
after I showed him the phone records.
There's more. He asked me in for a word.
What did he want?
To prove that he's our best point of contact for Lenny.
That they've been talking.
Unbelievable! This must be the start of his cover-up.
But why do that? It's so risky.
It certainly smacks of desperation.
I can only guess that Murdoch's put the squeeze on him.
Anything further on the murder investigation?
No. We're going to be reliant on witnesses.
Don't hold your breath.
So what's our next move?
Let's bide our time, see what unfolds.
-Continue to keep me posted.
You know, if we play our cards right,
we might just get all three of them.
you stopped me looking like a total Norma Nae Mates.
-What if he comes in?
-Tell him I hate bloody opera!
I mean, I don't get it.
This morning he was like Don Juan on speed.
How can he turn into scumbag rat in the one day?
I'm totally humiliated.
-You left messages?
Completely blanked. And a voice message.
You don't think he was put off by your keenness?
Eh? He was the one that came on strong.
Are you forgetting the flowers, and the opera.
And it was him that asked me out for a drink.
Well, I just hope nothing's happened to him.
Yeah, me too.
Cos I want to be the one to wring his neck.
Och, look. I'm sure there's going to be some sort of explanation.
-I've got a feeling it'll be the usual one.
"Man behaves like arse."
Here, have some more medicine.
Catching up on paperwork.
Can I help?
I thought you were steering clear of trouble?
You don't want to know.
Cole's gunning for you again, isn't she?
If we could just nail Murdoch and Kennedy, you'd be off the hook.
It's the key to all this.
If I caught Bible John I wouldn't be off the hook, believe me.
You just do your job, keep your bosses happy.
Don't get dragged into my mess.
You know, Cooper...
..all I ever wanted to do was catch the bad guys,
put them in prison.
I know, sir.
I thought I could stay one step ahead of them.
Turns out they were running circles around me.
Let's work something out.
It's late. Time to go home.
All right, well, the offer's there, OK?
If you're having second thoughts about having a wean -
about us - tell me?
Doesn't look like the kind of picture you would take,
if it was one drunken night, does it?
Are you gonnae tell Raymond we're not entertaining that rent rise?
Are you gonnae tell him to fix that shower unit and they blinds?
Look at you! You don't even deserve her, do you know that?
Nae wonder she came to somebody that knew how to love her.
