Be careful with those pins.

0:00:050:00:08

Even stars bleed.

0:00:080:00:09

Sorry.

0:00:090:00:10

I'm still in a bit of a daze.

0:00:100:00:12

This is my dream job.

0:00:120:00:14

-Just don't ask for a selfie.

-Oh, no, I'd never.

0:00:140:00:16

It becomes so tiresome.

0:00:160:00:18

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:00:180:00:19

Sally, what the hell is this? Didn't you learn anything from the preview? You can't rewrite Romeo and Juliet.

0:00:270:00:32

It's just a few more tweaks.

0:00:320:00:34

No-one tweaks the Bard.

0:00:340:00:37

Roman, we had a deal, remember? A little promise between each other.

0:00:370:00:44

There isn't a play in the world that couldn't do better with a few changes.

0:00:440:00:48

I think I'm done here.

0:00:500:00:51

So, how do I look? Would Romeo kill himself for me?

0:00:510:00:56

Oh, he'd definitely kill.

0:00:560:00:58

He wouldn't be able to help himself.

0:00:580:01:00

I need more light.

0:01:000:01:02

Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou...

0:01:020:01:06

What on earth?!

0:01:080:01:09

Oh, my!

0:01:140:01:15

-It would.

-It wouldn't.

0:01:410:01:44

It absolutely would.

0:01:440:01:45

A gorilla. Grr!

0:01:450:01:47

A gorilla is far stronger than a lion, it'd easy beat it in a fight.

0:01:470:01:49

-FRANK MAKES GORILLA NOISES

-Lion is a natural born killer.

0:01:490:01:52

Gorillas just sit about eating bananas all day.

0:01:520:01:54

Help me.

0:01:560:01:57

I'll pay anything.

0:01:570:01:58

Please take a seat.

0:01:580:01:59

Right, erm, shall we...shall we start with, er, a name? Your name.

0:01:590:02:05

-You don't know who I am?

-SEBASTIAN:

-Exactly!

0:02:050:02:07

The budgie smugglers had nothing to smuggle... Go away.

0:02:070:02:11

Sally Balthasar! I don't know whether to fawn or to faint.

0:02:120:02:19

Please say you'll help me.

0:02:190:02:20

Only someone's trying to kill me, and the wretched police

0:02:200:02:23

don't want to know.

0:02:230:02:24

So, who knew that you were staying here?

0:02:240:02:27

Well, I'm Sally Balthasar. Word will have got round.

0:02:270:02:31

Ward 9?

0:02:310:02:33

Soap opera?

0:02:330:02:34

Well, I prefer medical drama.

0:02:340:02:36

I played Senior Staff Nurse Nora Claret.

0:02:360:02:39

-So, nothing?

-I've checked everything.

0:02:390:02:41

OK. Thanks.

0:02:410:02:42

CCTV's down, so won't get anything out of that.

0:02:430:02:47

And you were in Miss Balthasar's room because...?

0:02:470:02:50

Sally wanted me to do an early costume fitting.

0:02:500:02:52

-I'd been up all night tacking and...

-You are?

0:02:520:02:55

Oh, I'm Roman Randall, the theatre director.

0:02:550:02:57

I just popped in with a few thoughts about the...

0:02:570:03:00

..play.

0:03:000:03:01

So, you're all in Stratford to put on a show?

0:03:010:03:03

A show? This is theatre.

0:03:030:03:06

Have you had threats like this before?

0:03:060:03:08

Well, hardly. I'm a national treasure.

0:03:080:03:10

I think it's probably a prank.

0:03:100:03:12

This isn't a prank!

0:03:120:03:14

This is a death threat.

0:03:140:03:15

OK, look, erm, I'll get CSI over first chance I get.

0:03:150:03:18

But we've got a lot on our plates right now.

0:03:180:03:22

So, tell me, who else might have read your updated version of Romeo and Juliet?

0:03:220:03:27

You mean Juliet and Romeo?

0:03:270:03:29

The cast were issued with more changes last night.

0:03:290:03:31

But I don't think that's it.

0:03:310:03:33

Oh, it's just a few lines here and there.

0:03:330:03:35

And is there anyone you've upset recently?

0:03:350:03:38

Well, there was this one chap...

0:03:380:03:40

..at the preview performance.

0:03:400:03:42

Horrendous fellow.

0:03:420:03:43

What's here?

0:03:470:03:48

A cup, closed in my true love's hand?

0:03:510:03:55

Poison, I see, hath been his timeless end.

0:03:550:03:59

And he foolishly thinks I should join him in heaven?

0:03:590:04:04

Slay myself for a man? Never!

0:04:040:04:08

I have a dream.

0:04:110:04:14

Not for equality.

0:04:140:04:15

But a dream for an apology.

0:04:150:04:17

A desire for every man to say sorry to every woman

0:04:190:04:24

for their unremitting abuse of power.

0:04:240:04:29

Our love has to be earned from now on, gentlemen.

0:04:290:04:32

You're a disgrace, Balthasar!

0:04:320:04:34

Do your hear that, Romeo? Do you hear me?

0:04:340:04:37

You're a despicable disgrace!

0:04:370:04:39

Do you hear that, Romeo? Too late to kill me!

0:04:390:04:41

You're a disgrace!

0:04:410:04:42

I'd only really changed the ending.

0:04:460:04:49

But now you've made some more changes?

0:04:490:04:51

Well, once you get a taste for it...

0:04:510:04:54

So, we could be talking about a kind of aggressive Shakespeare traditionalist here?

0:04:540:05:00

Which is something you don't get to say every day.

0:05:000:05:02

Well, I'll try and find him.

0:05:050:05:07

I'll go down to the hotel, see what I can dig up.

0:05:070:05:09

And I'll sashay my way over to the theatre.

0:05:090:05:11

Says who?

0:05:110:05:12

It's my world, Frank. I can be your eyes and ears on the ground.

0:05:120:05:17

I'm also an actor.

0:05:170:05:18

So if, say, I had to go undercover and do the odd part, I'd probably be wonderful.

0:05:180:05:24

-He would.

-He wouldn't.

0:05:250:05:27

BELL RINGS

0:05:390:05:40

-Good morning, madam.

-Hello.

0:05:450:05:46

Sorry to bother you but, erm, I was staying here last week and I think I left my...

0:05:460:05:52

..toothbrush in my room.

0:05:520:05:54

A toothbrush?

0:05:550:05:57

It was electric. Cost me an arm and a leg.

0:05:570:06:00

So, erm, I have been using a spare, obviously.

0:06:000:06:05

Of course.

0:06:050:06:06

Could you check the lost property for me?

0:06:060:06:08

-I'll have a look.

-Thanks.

0:06:100:06:11

-SEBASTIAN:

-'Tis torture, and not mercy.

0:06:250:06:27

Heaven is here, where Juliet lives,

0:06:270:06:29

and every cat and dog and little mouse, every unworthy thing,

0:06:290:06:33

live here in heaven and may look on her, but Romeo may not.

0:06:330:06:37

BELLE: Roman? Roman!

0:07:040:07:07

-Roman, I don't seem to have a part any more.

-What?

0:07:070:07:09

I'm not in any scenes.

0:07:090:07:11

How could she do that me? You swore this would be my big break.

0:07:110:07:14

And it will be, I promise you.

0:07:140:07:17

This is still far too tight.

0:07:180:07:20

I just followed your instructions.

0:07:200:07:22

I'm not in the Chippendales!

0:07:220:07:24

But you said...

0:07:240:07:26

What exactly are you implying? Go on.

0:07:260:07:28

I dare you.

0:07:280:07:29

Tell me I'm fat.

0:07:290:07:31

Look, I can only apologise.

0:07:310:07:33

-You're fired!

-Wait. What? I can fix it.

0:07:330:07:35

The minute I find a replacement, you can go.

0:07:350:07:38

This has the names of all the cast.

0:07:380:07:40

Fabulous, I'll start looking into them.

0:07:400:07:43

Oh, she's not really fired, is she?

0:07:430:07:46

You have to set an example, my young friend.

0:07:460:07:49

The cast are grumbling, it'll soon shut them up.

0:07:490:07:52

-Now, have you learnt anything?

-Erm...

0:07:520:07:54

I only just got here.

0:07:540:07:55

We'll have to fix that, then.

0:07:550:07:58

Roman?

0:07:580:07:59

-A word, if I may.

-Sally.

0:07:590:08:01

This is Sebastian.

0:08:010:08:03

Make a wonderful page to Paris, don't you think?

0:08:030:08:07

But with better lines.

0:08:070:08:09

Three years of RADA at your service.

0:08:090:08:11

Sorry, I...

0:08:160:08:18

You're a star, you are.

0:08:180:08:19

Hey, you should work on the stage.

0:08:190:08:21

Anyway, thanks, yes.

0:08:240:08:25

PHONE RINGS

0:08:280:08:31

-Hello.

-Yeah, listen. I've got the name of the bloke who kicked off at the preview.

0:08:320:08:36

Ooh, get you!

0:08:360:08:37

He paid for his ticket with a credit card.

0:08:370:08:39

He's called...er, Doug Lambie.

0:08:390:08:42

Doug Lambie? Hold on a minute. I know that name.

0:08:420:08:46

Yeah, he's on the, er, hotel guest list.

0:08:460:08:50

What, you memorised all the names?

0:08:500:08:52

We all have a gift, Frank. Yours will reveal itself. Eventually.

0:08:520:08:55

Er, let me think.

0:08:550:08:57

He's in Room 48.

0:08:570:08:59

Bingo. How good are we?

0:08:590:09:01

Er, listen, we did agree a flat fee with Sally, didn't we? Not an hourly rate?

0:09:010:09:06

I'll see you at the hotel. And, yes, if she asks, it was a flat fee.

0:09:060:09:09

Bye. Oh, bye, then!

0:09:090:09:11

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:09:320:09:33

So, how do you want to do this? Cos, like, he might be unhinged, a bit dangerous.

0:09:350:09:39

What, now, you bring that up?

0:09:390:09:40

I think he must be out.

0:09:430:09:45

-Hello?

-Oh, ha! Would you believe it?

0:09:450:09:48

Er, we've...we've locked ourselves out, and my car keys are in the room, so...

0:09:480:09:53

I know what it looks like - a handsome married man with some young blonde floozy.

0:09:530:09:59

But we are deeply in love.

0:10:000:10:01

-Yes.

-Argh! We are.

0:10:010:10:04

And we deeply need to see our spouses, so...if you could...

0:10:040:10:08

-OK.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:10:080:10:10

Welcome!

0:10:100:10:12

Come on, babe.

0:10:120:10:13

Once more around the world!

0:10:130:10:14

Floozy! What are we looking for?

0:10:160:10:20

A nice big tin of red paint would be nice.

0:10:210:10:23

Need a password.

0:10:260:10:27

The only thing criminal in here is his taste in clothes.

0:10:300:10:32

Oh, eh!

0:10:350:10:36

Looks like my old maths teacher.

0:10:360:10:38

-What you doing?

-Looking for fingerprints.

0:10:430:10:45

You know the marks where he's been swiping in the password.

0:10:450:10:47

And I think it looks like it might be a B.

0:10:470:10:50

-Hello!

-Good work, Lu.

0:10:530:10:55

Right, what we got?

0:10:550:10:57

Er, mostly work e-mails.

0:10:570:11:00

Just schedules, rotas, supplies.

0:11:000:11:03

Looks like Doug Lambie is an area sales manager for Lovely Buds Garden Centres.

0:11:050:11:11

What, there's nothing about Shakespeare? No annual subscription to I Love Willie?

0:11:110:11:15

Not a dicky bird.

0:11:150:11:17

Well, maybe he's not our man.

0:11:170:11:18

He's staying in the same hotel as Sally.

0:11:180:11:20

Ah, well, we'd better not forget about the other 50 guests that are staying there as well.

0:11:200:11:24

Two words, Frank - Celebrity Stalker.

0:11:240:11:27

Four words, Lu - stop reading those trashy magazines.

0:11:270:11:31

That's five.

0:11:310:11:32

Get in the car. He'll be back in a minute.

0:11:330:11:35

-We could be here hours.

-Mm.

0:11:450:11:47

Oh, look, look.

0:11:490:11:50

Sally has got her own section on the soap website.

0:11:500:11:53

Ooh. And there's a link here.

0:11:530:11:55

You can watch the episodes.

-Can't you get the footie on that instead?

0:11:580:12:00

I do love a soap.

0:12:000:12:01

'Don't know why I bothered turning up for this interview.

0:12:030:12:06

'They're bound to pick you for Senior Staff Nurse.

0:12:060:12:08

'Me? Oh, I don't stand a chance against you, Nora.

0:12:080:12:11

'You're everybody's darling.

0:12:110:12:13

-'Did I tell you my mum had to go into a home?

-No.'

0:12:130:12:16

What a load of rubbish!

0:12:160:12:17

-'When was this?

-Last night.

0:12:170:12:19

'It's going to cost me an arm and a leg.

0:12:190:12:20

'You'll get help with that.

0:12:200:12:22

'What I need is a pay rise.

0:12:220:12:25

'And you're going to tell them that in interview, aren't you?

0:12:250:12:28

'Me? Never. I wouldn't use that.

0:12:280:12:31

'It's all about the right person for the right job.

0:12:310:12:33

'We're professionals, Wendy.

0:12:330:12:35

'Since when have you and him been friends?

0:12:420:12:44

'Oh...since last night.

0:12:440:12:47

'Wait, he's on the interview panel, in't he?

0:12:470:12:49

'Is he? He kept that quiet.

0:12:490:12:52

'I think I might have a cup of coffee.

0:12:560:12:58

'Fancy one?

0:12:580:13:00

'Milk, two sugars.

0:13:000:13:01

'Coming right up.

0:13:020:13:03

'Two coffees, please.'

0:13:130:13:14

What a load of rubbish! No wonder they cancelled it.

0:13:160:13:19

Yeah, I know.

0:13:190:13:20

0:13:200:13:22

MUSIC FROM SOAP PLAYS

0:13:260:13:27

I've got theatres screaming down the phone at me.

0:13:270:13:30

Word's got out since the preview.

0:13:300:13:33

They're threatening to pull out of the tour.

0:13:330:13:35

Well, that'll change after press night.

0:13:350:13:38

We'll be laughing stock, Sally.

0:13:380:13:40

This right here is career suicide.

0:13:400:13:43

I helped forge your career.

0:13:430:13:45

I'll hardly destroy it now.

0:13:450:13:46

Sally, Sally, I really need you to think about this very carefully.

0:13:460:13:49

These threats against your life, they didn't appear out of thin air.

0:13:490:13:52

People do not like what you're doing to the show.

0:13:520:13:54

And I've got private investigators looking into it.

0:13:540:13:57

You have? Since when?

0:13:580:14:01

You look worried, Roman.

0:14:010:14:02

Well, aren't you? I mean, what if these people you've hired dig too deep?

0:14:020:14:05

-I've nothing to hide.

-OK, well, perhaps you should say that to Martha Weathers,

0:14:050:14:08

-and the rewrite you did for her.

-You benefitted, Roman, just like I did.

0:14:080:14:11

-Antonia?

-I'm still not proud of what I did.

0:14:110:14:14

-WHISPERS:

-Are they arguing?

-I think so.

0:14:140:14:15

Is it about me? Am I being written back in?

0:14:150:14:17

I don't know, Belle, I can't quite make out what they're saying.

0:14:170:14:19

What is this?

0:14:210:14:23

Um, I fixed Sally's dress for the matinee, and I was hoping you could put in a good word for me.

0:14:230:14:26

-I just really need this job.

-Move.

-Roman, wait.

0:14:260:14:29

Oh!

0:14:450:14:46

'I don't know what happened. We were outside waiting to get called

0:14:480:14:52

'for our interviews, happily drinking coffee.'

0:14:520:14:55

What? Happily drinking poisoned coffee, she means.

0:14:550:14:58

Yeah! That Nurse Claret, she is trouble, yeah?

0:14:580:15:02

Oh, there goes the evidence!

0:15:020:15:04

FRANK CHUCKLES

0:15:040:15:06

And into resus.

0:15:120:15:13

Have we got time for one more?

0:15:190:15:21

Oh, pause that a sec.

0:15:240:15:25

Well, well.

0:15:270:15:28

O, look! Methinks I see my cousin's ghost

0:15:320:15:36

seeking out Romeo, that did spit his body upon a rapier's point.

0:15:360:15:40

Stay, Tybalt, stay!

0:15:400:15:42

Romeo, Romeo, Romeo!

0:15:440:15:48

Here's drink.

0:15:480:15:49

I drink to thee.

0:15:490:15:51

How eerie.

0:16:090:16:10

I have not succumbed to sleep.

0:16:120:16:14

I think getting sacked might turn out to be a blessing.

0:16:140:16:17

If anything, this potion is making me feel stronger.

0:16:170:16:21

I feel its...

0:16:210:16:22

SHE COUGHS

0:16:220:16:24

I feel its nourishing strength...

0:16:240:16:27

SHE COUGHS

0:16:270:16:29

..enriching my womanhood.

0:16:290:16:32

She's very convincing.

0:16:320:16:34

SHE COUGHS, RETCHES

0:16:340:16:38

Help me!

0:16:400:16:41

Actually, it's verging on ham now.

0:16:410:16:43

House lights, please! House lights!

0:16:490:16:51

Ladies and gentlemen, if I could have your attention, please.

0:16:560:16:59

Can I ask you all to make your way to the exits as quickly as possible?

0:16:590:17:02

-You're going to be OK.

-Juliet lives on!

0:17:290:17:31

I guess you could say the writing was on the window.

0:17:360:17:39

-Oh!

-Don't need the sarcasm, Frank.

0:17:390:17:42

-I'm just saying.

-What are you guys doing here, anyway?

0:17:420:17:44

Sally's our client.

0:17:440:17:45

She wanted us to catch the man that's been threatening her.

0:17:450:17:48

Great job. Keep up the good work.

0:17:480:17:50

-So, did you get anywhere?

-Tell you what, I'll do you a trade.

0:17:500:17:53

You first.

0:17:530:17:54

OK, well, it looks like someone spiked Juliet's drink backstage.

0:17:540:17:58

So I'm going to ask them to rush through the tox report.

0:17:580:18:01

She's been poisoned? Ah, just like Wendy, in the soap.

0:18:010:18:04

What soap?

0:18:040:18:05

If you've got something, spill.

0:18:060:18:10

Well, we've been looking into this guy, Doug Lambie.

0:18:100:18:14

Staying at the same hotel as Sally.

0:18:140:18:16

Yeah, we think he might be some kind of Shakespeare nut, you know,

0:18:160:18:20

that hates then way she's changed Romeo and Juliet.

0:18:200:18:22

-"We"?

-Wait, you think that someone would kill over that?

0:18:220:18:28

-It's still a lead, Sergeant.

-Oh, that's the best thing I've heard.

0:18:280:18:32

-Come on.

-Yeah, and it's our lead.

0:18:320:18:34

So... We tracked him down, didn't we?

0:18:340:18:38

-You know what this means now.

-What, I'm going to play Juliet?

0:18:380:18:41

The show must go on, Belle. It's time for the understudy to step up.

0:18:410:18:45

-And me?

-We'll talk.

0:18:450:18:47

Heads up, everyone! We're going back to the original text.

0:18:470:18:51

Shakespeare can stop spinning in his grave.

0:18:510:18:54

LAUGHTER

0:18:540:18:56

-You wanted to see me?

-Ah, yes.

0:18:560:18:58

I need you to take Belle for a costume fitting,

0:18:580:19:00

and I need everything finished by tomorrow morning.

0:19:000:19:02

-I've got my job back?

-Yes!

0:19:020:19:04

Now get on with it, time is precious.

0:19:040:19:06

You won't regret it, I promise.

0:19:060:19:08

Er, OK, so... Oh, my God, this is so exciting!

0:19:080:19:13

Seems like that poisoning couldn't come too soon.

0:19:130:19:16

Never seen so many happy faces.

0:19:160:19:17

Yep. Well, thanks for the update.

0:19:240:19:27

Marlowe's taken Doug Lambie in for questioning.

0:19:270:19:29

It seems he was seen leaving the theatre earlier.

0:19:290:19:32

Oh, well, you'd better send Sally a bill, Sebastian.

0:19:320:19:35

If she's still strong enough to write the cheque.

0:19:350:19:37

What are you doing?

0:19:390:19:41

I want to find out if Wendy lives or dies.

0:19:410:19:44

You're addicted!

0:19:440:19:46

I loved this show when it was on.

0:19:460:19:48

I'd just turned 15, and I was desperate to marry a doctor.

0:19:480:19:52

Well, what about that? Roman Randall was in charge of Ward 9?

0:19:520:19:56

How did he go from running a soap opera

0:19:560:19:58

to award-winning theatre director?

0:19:580:20:00

-What, is that unusual?

-It's not exactly de rigeur.

0:20:000:20:03

Mind you, he probably regrets it now,

0:20:030:20:05

the way he and Sally were arguing.

0:20:050:20:07

-When was this?

-It was a right old ding-dong.

0:20:090:20:11

Shortly before she was poisoned.

0:20:110:20:13

Ah. Perhaps I should've told you that.

0:20:150:20:17

-What was the row about?

-I didn't quite catch...

0:20:170:20:22

any of it.

0:20:220:20:23

-What?!

-Sorry.

0:20:230:20:24

You were supposed to be undercover, winkling out clues.

0:20:240:20:27

What's the big deal? The police have made an arrest.

0:20:270:20:30

'I'm right here, Wendy.

0:20:390:20:40

'I think that promotion is yours.'

0:20:430:20:47

MACHINE BEEPS

0:20:470:20:49

MACHINE FLATLINES

0:20:550:20:57

'Oh, Wendy.

0:21:070:21:10

'You welcomed me to the hospital with open arms,

0:21:100:21:13

'and I'll never forget that.

0:21:130:21:14

'And when I get that promotion, I'll dedicate it to you.

0:21:160:21:21

'I'll tell them that everything I learned, I learned from you.

0:21:210:21:27

'That if you hadn't died so suddenly,

0:21:270:21:30

'that you would be striding around as senior staff nurse.'

0:21:300:21:34

I don't get it. Why kill off a good character and keep a rotten one?

0:21:400:21:45

I think it's called showbiz, Frank.

0:21:450:21:47

-Wendy was great.

-Mm.

-Are you two crying?

0:21:490:21:53

-No!

-No!

0:21:530:21:55

How are you feeling?

0:22:010:22:03

Dreadful, they've been taking all sorts of bloods and samples,

0:22:030:22:07

and still no-one's told me when I can leave.

0:22:070:22:10

Well, at least you're in the best place.

0:22:110:22:13

And, erm, Belle is going to step in for you tomorrow evening.

0:22:130:22:18

Belle?

0:22:180:22:20

Over my dead body, Roman.

0:22:200:22:22

Quite literally, after today.

0:22:220:22:25

-I'm going to be going on, not her.

-Somebody tried to kill you, Sally.

0:22:250:22:29

Yeah, and I believe they've made an arrest.

0:22:290:22:31

Now, can you get me a doctor? I need to get out of here.

0:22:310:22:34

Just met with Marlowe. They've released Doug Lambie.

0:22:440:22:47

No! We handed him to her on a plate.

0:22:470:22:49

Yeah. No-one could place him backstage at the matinee.

0:22:490:22:52

Plus, he doesn't know anything about Shakespeare.

0:22:520:22:54

-He's not the uber fan you thought he was.

-Oh!

0:22:540:22:57

Let's park him for a minute.

0:23:010:23:03

What about these three?

0:23:040:23:05

Far too happy when Sally was poisoned.

0:23:070:23:11

The CCTV at the hotel's broken. but we know the message was written

0:23:110:23:14

on the window some time before 7.30am,

0:23:140:23:17

because that's roughly when Sally opened the curtains.

0:23:170:23:19

Who knew vandals were early risers?

0:23:190:23:22

Can you remember anybody else who was staying at the hotel?

0:23:220:23:26

These two.

0:23:260:23:28

Hang on.

0:23:280:23:30

What, the star and the director were staying at some big posh hotel,

0:23:300:23:34

and the understudy was staying there as well?

0:23:340:23:36

Why wasn't she lumped in somewhere with the rest of the minor players?

0:23:360:23:39

Ah. Now, I'm not entirely sure, but I did get the impression

0:23:390:23:43

that Roman and Belle were a little bit familiar with each other.

0:23:430:23:47

It's lovely the way you over share, Sebastian.

0:23:470:23:50

So, Roman moved her into his hotel.

0:23:500:23:52

With Sally out of the way, Belle was free to star as Juliet.

0:23:520:23:56

And Roman gets to save his reputation. It's perfect.

0:23:560:23:59

-Sebastian, start looking into Belle.

-I'll go and see Roman.

0:23:590:24:02

And let's not forget Antonia - she'd been sacked by Sally.

0:24:020:24:06

Again, over sharing.

0:24:060:24:08

Thank you, Sebastian.

0:24:080:24:09

People have killed for a lot less.

0:24:120:24:14

You promised me Roman, you said you'd make me a star.

0:24:140:24:17

Blame Sally. I mean, what does it take to finish her off?

0:24:170:24:20

Mr Randall.

0:24:200:24:22

Hi, Lu Shakespeare from Shakespeare and Hathaway Private Investigators.

0:24:220:24:26

-Have you got a minute?

-Oh, you're the people Sally hired.

0:24:260:24:30

That's right. Yeah, and, erm, I do know that you and Sally

0:24:300:24:33

were having an argument before she was poisoned.

0:24:330:24:36

It was purely a creative discussion. End of.

0:24:360:24:41

Are you married, Mr Randall?

0:24:410:24:43

-I spotted the ring.

-Then why are you asking?

0:24:430:24:46

Oh, I, er, I think you both know why I'm asking.

0:24:460:24:51

What was the argument really about?

0:24:510:24:54

Who are you, anyway?

0:24:540:24:56

I'll tell you, shall I? Nobody.

0:24:560:24:59

-I don't need to talk to you.

-It won't just be me asking.

0:24:590:25:02

The police are going to want to know, too.

0:25:020:25:04

-Look, Roman, I think...

-Ignore her.

0:25:040:25:05

Oh!

0:25:050:25:07

Well, a lot of people have tried that.

0:25:080:25:10

Doesn't mean I'm going to go away.

0:25:100:25:12

-'You're dead! You're dead!'

-SHE SCREAMS

0:25:300:25:34

'You're dead! You're dead! You're dead! You're dead!'

0:25:360:25:40

I thought they'd arrested this maniac.

0:25:410:25:43

Not enough evidence to hold him.

0:25:430:25:44

So, he's still out there, this Doug person?

0:25:440:25:48

Look, we don't even know if it's him.

0:25:480:25:52

This is our case, Frank, butt out.

0:25:520:25:54

Well, you won't want to know how the teddy was delivered, then, will you?

0:25:540:25:58

Courier service.

0:25:580:25:59

Someone called Mr Baloo left cash and the teddy for collection.

0:25:590:26:03

Mr Baloo? And no-one thought that was made up?

0:26:030:26:06

I don't know what's wrong with people.

0:26:060:26:10

I need to go back to my hotel.

0:26:100:26:12

I can't go ahead with tomorrow night's performance now.

0:26:120:26:15

Listen, you were going back on stage. Who knew that?

0:26:150:26:17

I told Roman.

0:26:170:26:19

I presume he may have told others.

0:26:190:26:21

PHONE RINGS

0:26:210:26:23

It's Lu. Excuse me.

0:26:260:26:28

Right, what have you got?

0:26:350:26:38

So, Roman didn't want to speak to me,

0:26:380:26:39

which made me think he was hiding something.

0:26:390:26:42

So I had to go back a few years, but I found this review.

0:26:420:26:46

Cos Sebastian did say it seemed odd that

0:26:470:26:49

he basically switched professions overnight.

0:26:490:26:52

So, he put on a play, so what?

0:26:520:26:53

Exactly. So I did a bit more digging,

0:26:530:26:56

and it turns out that his first wife divorced him on grounds of adultery

0:26:560:26:59

- took him for every penny he had -

0:26:590:27:01

but he still somehow found the money to stage a play.

0:27:010:27:05

Is this going anywhere?

0:27:050:27:06

-Only I've got a full and happy life waiting for me.

-Patience, Frank.

0:27:060:27:10

So, Roman formed a limited company with none other than Sally.

0:27:100:27:16

She financed his play to the tune of £30,000.

0:27:170:27:20

HE WHISTLES

0:27:200:27:21

I know, right? That's a lot of money to give to a man

0:27:210:27:23

with no previous experience of directing theatre. Right?

0:27:230:27:26

-Mm, I see what you're driving at.

-Thank you.

0:27:260:27:29

Just get there quicker next time.

0:27:290:27:31

Look at it! Look at it!

0:27:340:27:37

Someone needs to tell Sebastian that we are professionals.

0:27:370:27:41

Where's the recording of the threat?

0:27:440:27:46

Lu, the teddy bear didn't do it. I will stake my reputation on it.

0:27:460:27:49

We never tried slowing it down.

0:27:490:27:53

We need to talk pay rise.

0:27:530:27:55

I know Belle's real surname.

0:27:550:27:58

Turns out she changed it to Roehampton from...

0:27:580:28:01

SHE MUTTERS TO HERSELF

0:28:010:28:04

Hello.

0:28:060:28:09

-What's this?

-Well, we thought we've not been properly introduced yet.

0:28:090:28:13

Yeah, I'm not speaking to her, or you.

0:28:130:28:15

Before you go, tell me about this burning desire to play Juliet.

0:28:150:28:19

One of the greatest roles in one of the greatest plays ever.

0:28:190:28:22

Goodbye.

0:28:220:28:24

-RECORDING:

-You're dead! You're dead!

-Oh, wrong recording.

0:28:240:28:27

Should you two be allowed out unaccompanied?

0:28:270:28:30

-SLOWED DOWN:

-You're dead! You're dead!

0:28:300:28:32

That is your voice, isn't it, Belle?

0:28:320:28:33

Yeah, it could be one of a million people.

0:28:330:28:36

Yeah, but you're the only one with the surname Lambie.

0:28:360:28:39

-Doug Lambie's your dad, isn't he?

-So?

0:28:390:28:42

Well, he couldn't get backstage to deliver the poison, but you could.

0:28:420:28:45

-Anything to get that part.

-Look, I did no such thing.

0:28:450:28:48

-Classic case of misdirection.

-Classic.

0:28:480:28:52

Your dad berates Sally, while you work secretly in the background,

0:28:520:28:55

-plotting to get rid of her.

-So he looks like the prime suspect,

0:28:550:28:58

-when actually he's done nothing wrong.

-No, no, no...

0:28:580:29:00

Absolutely not. I swear.

0:29:000:29:01

Well, the police got the toxicology report back this morning.

0:29:010:29:04

Weedkiller.

0:29:040:29:05

Although Sally would have to drink a litre before it killed her.

0:29:050:29:08

Pretty amateur attempt at murder,

0:29:080:29:10

but then you're both amateurs, aren't you?

0:29:100:29:13

Yes, and thanks to his job at the garden centre,

0:29:130:29:16

your dad had easy access to weedkiller, didn't he?

0:29:160:29:18

Well, who hasn't? Anyone can buy it.

0:29:180:29:21

Is that really all you've got?

0:29:210:29:24

Well, the forensics on the vial that Sally drank from

0:29:240:29:27

-are going to come back soon.

-Even better,

0:29:270:29:29

because I never touched it, not once.

0:29:290:29:31

You know that threat you painted on the window?

0:29:310:29:33

Have you still got the paint in your room? Because if you haven't,

0:29:330:29:36

they'll find traces on your clothes.

0:29:360:29:39

Look, maybe me and Dad did try and scare Sally into

0:29:390:29:41

quitting the show, and maybe I do want to be a star,

0:29:410:29:43

but we're not killers.

0:29:430:29:44

Not now we're onto you.

0:29:440:29:46

Trust me, you can't prove something that isn't true.

0:29:460:29:48

Now, if you'll excuse me, I've a costume fitting with Antonia.

0:29:480:29:51

So what now?

0:29:550:29:58

You don't have to do this, Sally. We're really close.

0:29:580:30:01

I'm leaving the play. I got the message loud and clear.

0:30:010:30:03

We found out you funded Roman's first play.

0:30:030:30:06

So what? I could afford a few hundred pounds.

0:30:060:30:08

We were under the impression it was more like 30K.

0:30:080:30:13

Well, it was a long time ago.

0:30:130:30:15

Now, if you'll excuse me, my nerves are in shreds.

0:30:150:30:18

Why would she lie?

0:30:220:30:24

SOAP OPERA HOSPITAL SCENE PLAYS

0:30:240:30:27

'Oh, Wendy,

0:30:390:30:42

'you welcomed me into the hospital with open arms,

0:30:420:30:46

'and I'll never forget that.

0:30:460:30:48

'And when I get that promotion, I'll dedicate it to you.

0:30:480:30:53

'I'll tell them that everything I learned...'

0:30:530:30:55

VIDEO STOPS

0:30:550:30:57

So, a soap character gets poisoned, and then the actress playing

0:30:570:31:02

the poisoner gets the same treatment ten years later.

0:31:020:31:04

I mean, what do you make of that?

0:31:040:31:06

Er, bearing in mind that Roman was running the soap opera back then.

0:31:060:31:09

And he got £30,000 from Sally.

0:31:090:31:11

So, what if Sally bribed him to kill off the Wendy character?

0:31:140:31:17

And the actress playing Wendy wants revenge.

0:31:170:31:20

Ten years later, though. Who waits that long?

0:31:220:31:25

I think we should find her, don't you?

0:31:250:31:27

Well, er, thanks for agreeing to see us at such short notice, Martha.

0:31:270:31:31

It's, er....

0:31:310:31:32

We've been watching Ward 9. We're big fans now, aren't we?

0:31:320:31:37

-Oh, yeah, big fans.

-Thank you.

0:31:370:31:39

Would you like a cup of tea?

0:31:390:31:41

Oh!

0:31:480:31:49

We were really upset when your character died.

0:31:490:31:52

Looks like you were the Queen of Soapland.

0:31:590:32:02

We appear to be out of tea. Never mind, please sit.

0:32:040:32:08

Oh! Oh! Ah!

0:32:150:32:17

So, erm, we checked the TV and film database,

0:32:200:32:25

and it looks like you didn't stay in acting.

0:32:250:32:27

-I did try.

-But?

0:32:270:32:30

I was Nurse Wendy. No-one wanted me as anyone else.

0:32:300:32:34

That's a shame, I could do with a nurse right now. Ooh!

0:32:340:32:38

Well, we thought you were great.

0:32:380:32:40

And so did the press, by the looks of things.

0:32:400:32:44

Why would they kill off such a popular character?

0:32:440:32:47

-The producer never said.

-What, it was Roman's decision?

0:32:470:32:50

I got the script, and it had been changed at the last minute.

0:32:500:32:55

-He didn't even warn me.

-Ah, that's brutal, that is..

0:32:550:32:59

Remind me not to go into telly.

0:32:590:33:01

When you say "changed," what do you mean?

0:33:010:33:03

Sally's character was meant to be killed off, not mine.

0:33:030:33:08

Are you sure about that?

0:33:080:33:11

All of that...to this.

0:33:110:33:17

Tell me, did you really like my performance?

0:33:200:33:24

You can tell me over a cup of tea. Would you like one?

0:33:260:33:30

Yep.

0:33:320:33:33

Oh, my word.

0:33:370:33:39

-Roman!

-I don't care.

0:33:430:33:45

I've got you, I've got a play that everyone's going to love,

0:33:450:33:48

and best of all, Sally is dead.

0:33:480:33:50

Or at least resting, as they say.

0:33:500:33:52

I can't thank you enough for keeping me on.

0:33:520:33:54

We're all one big happy family now.

0:33:540:33:57

-Good luck, you.

-I'll see you later.

-You'll be brilliant.

0:33:570:34:01

Belle, visitor.

0:34:040:34:06

Can I get an autograph before you get too famous?

0:34:080:34:11

Dad!

0:34:110:34:13

Erm, those investigators. They know we were threatening Sally.

0:34:130:34:18

And have we been arrested? The show must go on, Belle.

0:34:180:34:22

Always.

0:34:220:34:24

I know you didn't succeed,

0:34:310:34:32

but I thought I should at least pay you for your time.

0:34:320:34:34

We're still on the case, Sally. Belle and her dad were trying to

0:34:340:34:38

scare you, but we're not convinced they were trying to kill you.

0:34:380:34:41

It was Belle? That little minx!

0:34:410:34:45

-Roman never could pick a winner.

-There is still someone out there.

0:34:450:34:48

Yes, but I've quit the play, whoever it is has got their wish.

0:34:480:34:51

We went to see Martha Weathers today.

0:34:510:34:56

Martha? Last I heard, she'd, er, had a breakdown.

0:34:560:35:00

-How is she?

-Still broken.

0:35:000:35:02

In fact I'd say she badly needs looking after,

0:35:020:35:06

so, if you've got a spare 30,000...

0:35:060:35:09

You were going to be written out of Ward 9,

0:35:090:35:11

until you went to Roman Randall and offered him 30k to stage his play.

0:35:110:35:15

Yeah, not the few hundred pounds that you claimed.

0:35:150:35:19

Why lie about it?

0:35:190:35:20

Unless it was a bribe to get Roman to change his mind

0:35:200:35:24

-about which nurse to kill off.

-Don't just blame me.

0:35:240:35:26

Roman jumped at the chance. His wife took him for every penny.

0:35:260:35:30

Did Roman want to become a theatre director? Is that what it was?

0:35:300:35:34

Did you promise him you could make it happen for him?

0:35:340:35:36

Sally, surely not? Don't do this to me.

0:35:360:35:39

I was a big star back then, Sebastian.

0:35:430:35:47

Something you might never experience.

0:35:470:35:49

Found it very hard to let go.

0:35:510:35:53

I was in love with the fame, magazine covers,

0:35:530:35:57

the red carpets at award nights.

0:35:570:36:00

It's something I couldn't give up very easily.

0:36:000:36:04

Is Martha angry with me?

0:36:040:36:06

She didn't know anything about it...

0:36:060:36:09

which killed one of our theories stone dead.

0:36:090:36:12

Well, I hope this can remain our secret.

0:36:120:36:17

-Anyway, I must go to the theatre.

-I don't think that's wise.

0:36:170:36:20

And deny me the pleasure of seeing how utterly terrible Belle is?

0:36:200:36:24

It'll be a joy sacking her after.

0:36:240:36:26

So, who we left with now?

0:36:280:36:31

What? Sally just paid, job's done.

0:36:310:36:35

Can't leave it alone now!

0:36:350:36:37

It's just the way I am.

0:36:390:36:42

OK.

0:36:420:36:44

So, Roman's got his reputation back.

0:36:440:36:45

-Is that enough to kill for?

-Well, it could be.

0:36:450:36:49

It could be another dead end.

0:36:490:36:52

We're pretty good at finding those lately.

0:36:520:36:55

Oh, come on, Grumpy McGrumpface. Let's go over what we know, then.

0:36:550:37:01

Right...

0:37:010:37:03

O, be some other name!

0:37:030:37:06

'Belle is set to be a star...'

0:37:060:37:07

What's in a name? That which we call a rose

0:37:070:37:10

by any other name would smell as sweet.

0:37:100:37:12

'Doug Lambie would do anything for his daughter.'

0:37:120:37:14

So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd...

0:37:140:37:17

'Roman, as we know, benefits hugely.

0:37:170:37:19

'And Antonia gets to keep her job.'

0:37:190:37:21

Romeo, doff thy name, and take from that name,

0:37:210:37:25

which is no part of thee, take all myself.

0:37:250:37:28

Of course!

0:37:340:37:35

We appear to be out of tea.

0:37:350:37:37

Martha said "we".

0:37:370:37:39

Someone was looking after her. She couldn't give us a cup of tea,

0:37:390:37:42

because she didn't know where it was kept.

0:37:420:37:44

You'll have to explain the relevance.

0:37:440:37:46

Belle wasn't the only person who changed her name.

0:37:460:37:50

No! Still as clear as mud.

0:37:500:37:52

The row Sally and Roman had - do you remember it?

0:37:520:37:55

-I told you before...

-It doesn't matter what it was about.

0:37:550:37:57

It matters who heard it.

0:37:570:38:00

Get on the phone to Sally, tell her to get out of the theatre.

0:38:000:38:02

That's the last place she should've gone.

0:38:020:38:04

Well, that was utterly dreadful.

0:38:190:38:21

Christina, get to the theatre as soon as you can.

0:38:270:38:30

-Come on!

-This is a residential area.

-Come on!

0:38:320:38:35

-Where is she?

-Up there.

0:38:400:38:43

Oh, why did she have to be so high up?

0:38:430:38:46

No! I don't understand!

0:38:470:38:50

No, please!

0:38:500:38:53

I won't jump, not for anyone.

0:38:530:38:56

You don't want to do that.

0:38:560:38:58

Do you, Antonia?

0:38:580:39:02

So far, no-one's been badly hurt, but it's a long way down.

0:39:020:39:06

It's been a long way down for the last ten years.

0:39:060:39:09

Yeah, we know. We know. We went to see Martha.

0:39:090:39:13

She can't fend for herself.

0:39:130:39:16

You've been there, haven't you, looking after her?

0:39:160:39:19

Ah, I sat on your pin cushion.

0:39:190:39:21

Oh! Oh! Ah!

0:39:210:39:23

It's Martha Weathers, used to be Martha Briars.

0:39:250:39:28

She's your big sister, isn't she?

0:39:280:39:31

She changed her surname. A lot of actors do that.

0:39:310:39:34

Is it when you overheard the row between Sally and Roman?

0:39:360:39:40

Is that when you realised what she'd done to Martha?

0:39:400:39:44

You look worried, Roman.

0:39:440:39:46

Aren't you? I mean, what if these people you've hired dig too deep?

0:39:460:39:49

-I've got nothing to hide.

-OK, well, perhaps you should

0:39:490:39:52

say that to Martha Weathers and the rewrite you did for her.

0:39:520:39:54

Suddenly it clicked, didn't it?

0:39:540:39:56

Sally just can't stop changing scripts.

0:39:580:40:02

'And the next thing I know, Wendy is writhing around on the floor,

0:40:020:40:06

'clutching her stomach.'

0:40:060:40:08

Nice bit of symmetry, mm?

0:40:110:40:13

Poisoning Sally like Nora poisoned Wendy in the soap.

0:40:130:40:17

I think it's called resonance.

0:40:180:40:21

Take one more step, and I'll do it. I will.

0:40:210:40:23

Do you want to spend the rest of your life in prison?

0:40:230:40:26

Who's going to look after Martha?

0:40:260:40:29

You saw her, you saw what killing her character did to her.

0:40:290:40:34

Martha used to be amazing.

0:40:340:40:37

She was lively, loving, talented,

0:40:370:40:41

and Sally took all that away from her.

0:40:410:40:44

She killed her twice over.

0:40:450:40:48

All those posters and pictures on her wall.

0:40:480:40:52

People used to adore her, and now all she's got is me.

0:40:530:40:59

Everyone's forgotten her.

0:40:590:41:01

This is not the answer, Antonia.

0:41:010:41:05

There's a big difference between killing someone on a page

0:41:050:41:08

and killing them for real.

0:41:080:41:10

-She needs to pay for what she's done!

-She will.

0:41:100:41:13

No-one's going to want to work with Sally again, or Roman.

0:41:130:41:18

You've won, Antonia.

0:41:180:41:21

You did right by Martha.

0:41:210:41:23

FOOTSTEPS Better late than never.

0:41:360:41:39

I didn't know it would come to this. If I had, I...

0:41:390:41:42

You'd have done exactly same thing.

0:41:420:41:44

All you're interested in is walking down the red carpet.

0:41:440:41:48

I wouldn't like her to take my temperature.

0:42:100:42:12

Don't know where that thermometer's been.

0:42:120:42:14

-The reviews are in!

-Oh!

-Listen to this.

0:42:140:42:17

"Belle Roehampton should have spared us all

0:42:180:42:21

-"and drunk the poison in the first act."

-Ho-ho!

0:42:210:42:24

"And Roman Randall's direction had more in common with a

0:42:240:42:26

"pre-school panto, but at least those are usually charming."

0:42:260:42:30

Ho-ho! There's two more deaths right there.

0:42:300:42:33

-Sh. Shush. Shush.

-Come back, Sally, all is forgiven.

0:42:330:42:35

Will you be quiet, both of you?

0:42:350:42:37

'See if I can organise a slot for her ASAP.

0:42:370:42:39

'It's her only hope.'

0:42:390:42:41

Frank, what are you doing?!

0:42:410:42:43

Two words, Lu - the end.

0:42:430:42:46

Frank and Lu investigate death threats made against a former soap star who is about to stage her return to the limelight.
