Excellent.

0:00:150:00:16

We'll see you on Friday, at eight o'clock.

0:00:160:00:18

Paulina! We didn't realise you'd be reviewing us again so soon.

0:00:210:00:25

Especially after last time.

0:00:250:00:27

Yes, well, I always like to give people a chance to redeem themselves.

0:00:270:00:31

Dita! Show Ms Stainton to table seven.

0:00:310:00:35

Yes, Mrs Tekler.

0:00:350:00:36

-But...

-Don't keep the customer waiting.

0:00:360:00:38

Yes, but table three!

0:00:380:00:40

Ten minutes on seven!

0:00:500:00:53

How we doing? Let's go!

0:00:530:00:55

-30 seconds, Chef.

-Len, the judge is here. Table three.

0:00:550:00:57

Milo! How are we doing on the poussin?

0:00:570:00:59

Coming now, Chef.

0:00:590:01:00

-What's this?!

-That's how you told me to make it.

0:01:020:01:04

This is a mess! This will not win me Arden Restaurant of the Year!

0:01:040:01:07

Service! Let's move! Come on!

0:01:120:01:14

Table three! Let's go! Let's go, let's go.

0:01:140:01:18

-Where are you going?

-I need some fresh air.

0:01:180:01:20

We're in the middle of service!

0:01:200:01:22

What the...

0:01:230:01:25

SCREAMING

0:01:250:01:26

What's happening now?

0:01:260:01:28

There's somebody there! There's somebody there.

0:01:280:01:31

-Are you there?

-What happened?

0:01:310:01:32

I don't know! I don't know! I don't...

0:01:320:01:35

Are you all just going to stand here?

0:01:350:01:37

Seriously.

0:01:370:01:38

-What's going on?

-Can we calm down?

0:01:380:01:41

Are you all right?

0:01:410:01:43

Yeah.

0:01:430:01:44

Are you sure? Need a minute?

0:01:440:01:46

No. I'm fine.

0:01:460:01:48

Hey, hey, hey.

0:01:480:01:49

I'll take this.

0:01:490:01:51

I need to apologise.

0:01:510:01:53

First time for everything.

0:01:540:01:56

Ladies and gentlemen, please accept my apologies for the power cut.

0:02:010:02:05

It's a very old building.

0:02:050:02:06

LAUGHTER

0:02:060:02:09

Enjoy.

0:02:120:02:13

One for me...

0:02:450:02:46

and one for you.

0:02:460:02:48

Thank you muchly.

0:02:480:02:49

Oh, er, cheers!

0:02:490:02:51

Oh, cheers!

0:02:510:02:52

No! Oh, no, you don't.

0:02:520:02:55

-Oi!

-What did you do that for?

0:02:550:02:57

Didn't want you to ruin your appetite.

0:02:570:02:59

-You've been invited for breakfast.

-Breakfast?! Where?

0:02:590:03:02

Hiverna.

0:03:020:03:04

Isn't that that posh place by the river?

0:03:040:03:06

My mate Samantha took her boyfriend there and it cost 200 quid!

0:03:060:03:10

Why are we getting a free meal?

0:03:100:03:12

They wouldn't say on the phone, but I did some digging online...

0:03:120:03:16

Hiverna...

0:03:160:03:19

And I found this food blog,

0:03:190:03:20

Unquiet Meals. Listen to this.

0:03:200:03:23

"When the end is nigh for a restaurant,

0:03:230:03:26

"legend states it'll be visited by the four horsemen of the

0:03:260:03:30

"gastronomic apocalypse - vermin, sickness, in-fighting

0:03:300:03:34

"and, eventually, death.

0:03:340:03:36

"Judging by their current rat infestation, Hiverna's future is looking bleak."

0:03:360:03:41

Rat infestation?

0:03:410:03:43

Bon appetit!

0:03:430:03:44

So this food blogger was here last night?

0:03:490:03:53

Paulina Stainton.

0:03:530:03:55

She's had it in for me since she first walked in the door.

0:03:550:03:58

Cecilia and I call her the Wicked Witch Of The West!

0:03:580:04:01

RINGING

0:04:040:04:07

Hello, Cecilia Tekler speaking.

0:04:070:04:10

Please eat.

0:04:100:04:11

Yes.

0:04:110:04:12

Yes, that's right.

0:04:120:04:14

Ooh.

0:04:170:04:19

Ah, so you've finally honoured us with your presence!

0:04:190:04:23

This is my son Milo.

0:04:230:04:25

Training him up for the family business, eh?

0:04:250:04:27

Well, there won't be a family business at this rate.

0:04:270:04:30

Get in the kitchen, start prepping.

0:04:300:04:33

Sorry, Dad.

0:04:330:04:35

That award should've been mine.

0:04:350:04:37

We've got no chance now.

0:04:370:04:39

This was sabotage! Someone did this and I want to know who.

0:04:390:04:44

Well, look, we'll go and see this Paula Stainton, but, erm, it might be an inside job.

0:04:450:04:53

No. It's a small team, very loyal.

0:04:530:04:56

Let us put a hidden camera in the kitchen, just in case.

0:04:560:04:59

Hopefully, we'll catch them in the act.

0:04:590:05:01

-Hopefully?

-Well, obviously, I can't promise anything, but...

0:05:010:05:04

I refuse to let somebody destroy this restaurant! I owe it to my brother.

0:05:040:05:10

Oh, does your brother work here, as well?

0:05:100:05:12

No.

0:05:120:05:13

We lost him years ago, but if it hadn't been for him, I wouldn't even be in this game.

0:05:130:05:18

Well, how about we place one of our colleagues undercover in the kitchen?

0:05:190:05:24

No! I didn't spend three years training at RADA to wash dishes and chop onions!

0:05:270:05:32

Oh, come on, what actor hasn't worked in a kitchen, eh?

0:05:320:05:36

And you have had worse jobs.

0:05:360:05:38

Remember when you were the mascot for Stratford Town and those little kids chased you down Knights Lane?

0:05:380:05:44

At least then I was performing.

0:05:440:05:46

This is a performance.

0:05:460:05:48

And when you're famous and you're invited onto MasterChef, just think,

0:05:480:05:52

this kind of experience will be invaluable.

0:05:520:05:55

I suppose I could use some tips on how to stop my souffles deflating...

0:05:570:06:01

Keep your station clean at all times.

0:06:060:06:09

Red board's for raw meat, yellow's for cooked,

0:06:090:06:12

blue's fish, white's dairy, brown's vegetables,

0:06:120:06:15

green's salad or fruit.

0:06:150:06:17

# I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow... #

0:06:170:06:20

Where do you say you were before?

0:06:200:06:22

The Marinated Squirrel.

0:06:220:06:24

Mm. It's one of those pop-up places.

0:06:240:06:27

Very exclusive. Lots of foraging.

0:06:270:06:29

Just make sure you taste everything before sending it to the pass.

0:06:300:06:33

My dad can be brutal.

0:06:330:06:34

Taste everything.

0:06:340:06:36

Gotcha.

0:06:360:06:37

Too hot?

0:06:400:06:41

Too hot.

0:06:410:06:43

Dita! This is Sebastian.

0:06:450:06:48

Dad's giving him a trial.

0:06:480:06:49

Oh, good luck!

0:06:490:06:50

Thanks.

0:06:500:06:52

I, erm, heard about the...

0:06:520:06:53

..rodent incident.

0:06:530:06:56

Oh, don't! I feel sick just thinking about it.

0:06:560:06:58

Mm. Do you know how it happened?

0:06:580:07:01

You do, don't you?!

0:07:030:07:04

Not for sure.

0:07:040:07:06

So, you know that food critic, Paulina What's-Her-Face?

0:07:060:07:11

Milo saw her, just after the lights came back on.

0:07:110:07:15

I need to apologise.

0:07:160:07:18

First time for everything!

0:07:190:07:21

-Problem with your electrics?

-Sorry. Sorted now.

0:07:300:07:33

Your father never was the brightest spark.

0:07:340:07:37

Will you tell your dad?

0:07:400:07:42

He'd just shout his head off at her without any proof.

0:07:420:07:45

We've had enough bad publicity.

0:07:450:07:48

Come, I'll show you the pantry.

0:07:480:07:49

Uh, just need to, er, powder my nose first.

0:07:490:07:52

"Powder my nose"? Where did your dad find him?

0:07:550:07:59

No idea.

0:07:590:08:00

I don't know why anyone would spend 200 quid on a meal

0:08:020:08:05

when there's a perfectly good chippy round the corner.

0:08:050:08:08

I don't mind forking out for good food, so long as it doesn't come with a side order of rat.

0:08:080:08:12

Oh, speaking of which, Sebastian thinks that Paulina Stainton was in the right place at the right time.

0:08:120:08:17

I think that's her.

0:08:260:08:28

Ms Stainton?

0:08:330:08:34

Oh, yes, greetings! Do join me.

0:08:360:08:38

Er, thanks again for agreeing to meet with us.

0:08:400:08:42

Hope it wasn't too far out of your way.

0:08:420:08:44

It's one of the only places around here that does a decent coffee.

0:08:440:08:47

Oh, no, it's fine.

0:08:470:08:48

Like I said on the phone, Len Tekler hired us to...

0:08:480:08:51

Yes, and before you ask, I had nothing to do with the rat.

0:08:510:08:54

There are dozens of people who'd like to see Len Tekler humiliated.

0:08:540:08:57

Such as?

0:08:570:08:59

Disgruntled employees, dissatisfied customers...

0:08:590:09:02

Or just anyone with a modicum of good taste, really.

0:09:020:09:05

I thought the, er, the food at Hiverna was supposed to be quite highly rated?

0:09:050:09:09

It's won enough awards, hasn't it?

0:09:090:09:10

It's a tourist trap and the menu's passable, I suppose,

0:09:100:09:14

but no better than you'd find at many cheaper places.

0:09:140:09:17

And as for Len Tekler, the man's a delusional despot.

0:09:170:09:21

Not to mention his wandering hands.

0:09:210:09:23

Did you notice the new girl, the new waitress he's got working for him?

0:09:230:09:28

Something tells me she didn't get the job because of her extensive silver-service training!

0:09:280:09:32

Mm. If you hate Hiverna so much, how come you keep going back?

0:09:320:09:37

I mean, we've found half a dozen reviews that you've written in the last year.

0:09:370:09:42

Yes, because I owe it to my readers to keep up with any menu changes.

0:09:420:09:46

Some people might think you have a personal vendetta against him.

0:09:460:09:49

Perhaps I have.

0:09:490:09:51

But if I attack someone, I do so using the written word, not a deceased rodent.

0:09:510:09:55

RINGING

0:09:550:09:57

Sorry. Oh, excuse me.

0:09:570:10:00

Hello, Sebastian, we're in the mid... What? Oh, all right, all right.

0:10:000:10:03

Calm-calm down.

0:10:030:10:05

What's happened?

0:10:050:10:07

What have you done? You've only been here a couple of hours!

0:10:200:10:23

It wasn't me! During lunch, the customers just started dropping like flies.

0:10:230:10:27

Nausea, stomach cramps, and worse.

0:10:270:10:30

The toilets look like a scene from The Exorcist.

0:10:300:10:33

Urgh, that's too much information.

0:10:330:10:35

-Food poisoning?

-How should I know?!

0:10:350:10:37

Well, did you see anything suspicious?

0:10:370:10:39

Nothing, but it's such a mad rush during service...

0:10:390:10:42

-Excuse me.

-Oh.

0:10:420:10:43

Do you think someone tampered with the food?

0:10:460:10:49

Bit of a coincidence otherwise.

0:10:490:10:50

By the way, Mr Tekler has not taken it well.

0:10:500:10:54

You have to calm down!

0:10:550:10:57

When I find out who did this, I'm going to cut out their hearts,

0:11:000:11:04

dice it, deep-fry it, desiccate it,

0:11:040:11:07

and turn it into a foam, and feed it back to them!

0:11:070:11:09

We can see you're upset, Mr Tekler.

0:11:110:11:13

Upset?!

0:11:130:11:15

I'm ruined!

0:11:160:11:19

Morning.

0:11:320:11:33

A veritable cornucopia of Williams.

0:11:370:11:40

A what?

0:11:400:11:42

Bills, bills, and more bills.

0:11:420:11:44

What are you doing in? I thought we agreed to carry on with the undercover surveillance?

0:11:480:11:52

I got a call first thing.

0:11:520:11:54

Hiverna's been closed down by the council while they investigate.

0:11:540:11:57

And Len Tekler is refusing to pay us a penny.

0:11:570:11:59

Says we were negligent in our duties.

0:11:590:12:00

Oh, we can't have that!

0:12:000:12:04

Is it wise to pick a fight with a man who handles sharp knives for a living?

0:12:040:12:08

Probably not.

0:12:080:12:10

And how long will the tests take?

0:12:120:12:14

There must be some way to speed things up?

0:12:160:12:18

Because we can't afford to remain closed indefinitely!

0:12:200:12:23

That would be much appreciated.

0:12:250:12:27

KNOCKING Thank you.

0:12:270:12:29

We're closed!

0:12:290:12:30

I know!

0:12:300:12:31

Is, er, is your husband in?

0:12:380:12:40

He's upstairs.

0:12:400:12:42

He had a...a late night.

0:12:420:12:45

I've finished in the store room.

0:12:450:12:47

Shall I check on Mr Tekler?

0:12:470:12:49

If the store room's done, you can give the toilets another going over.

0:12:490:12:52

Yes, Mrs Tekler.

0:12:520:12:54

You'll have to come back later.

0:12:580:13:00

What's he doing here?

0:13:020:13:03

I'm here to persuade you to change your mind,

0:13:030:13:05

keep us on the case.

0:13:050:13:07

And why would I do that?

0:13:070:13:09

My restaurant's been shut down.

0:13:090:13:10

I've got a dozen customers threatening legal action.

0:13:100:13:13

You were supposed to stop something like this from happening!

0:13:130:13:15

Surveillance takes a long time.

0:13:150:13:17

Don't you want to know who's responsible?

0:13:170:13:20

The kitchen's been shut down! How are you going to do that?

0:13:200:13:23

Well, we've still got to check the footage from the hidden camera.

0:13:230:13:26

Let us do our job. I-I promise you, I will find out who did this.

0:13:260:13:30

Sebastian says he's checked all the footage from the hidden camera

0:13:340:13:38

and there's absolutely no sign of anyone tampering with ingredients.

0:13:380:13:42

I knew we should've put a camera in the pantry.

0:13:420:13:45

So who is this guy, then?

0:13:450:13:46

Trevor Cordiss. Another chef.

0:13:460:13:48

Apart from Paulina Stainton, he tops a long list of people Tekler thinks have a grudge against him.

0:13:480:13:53

See you later.

0:13:560:13:58

If they're enemies, what's Tekler's son doing coming out of his boat?

0:14:000:14:05

I think we should find out.

0:14:050:14:06

Hello?

0:14:170:14:18

Hello! Welcome aboard Juno's Swan!

0:14:180:14:21

Let me guess, Champagne dinner, cruise?

0:14:230:14:26

Nothing like the twinkling lights on the water for a bit of romance.

0:14:260:14:29

-No, we're not, er...

-No...

0:14:290:14:30

We're actually private investigators.

0:14:300:14:33

Here to talk about Len Tekler.

0:14:330:14:35

Oh, in that case, I'm going to need another drink.

0:14:350:14:38

So you and Mr Tekler were, er, business partners?

0:14:410:14:44

We were best friends.

0:14:460:14:48

Trained together, set up our first restaurant together.

0:14:480:14:52

Course, I wouldn't spit on him now if he was on fire.

0:14:530:14:57

What went wrong?

0:14:570:14:58

It's ancient history.

0:14:590:15:01

-Please. Humour us.

-It's personal.

0:15:010:15:03

Personal enough to sabotage his restaurant?

0:15:030:15:06

You what? Oh! The rat.

0:15:060:15:10

I read about that.

0:15:100:15:12

It wasn't just the rat.

0:15:120:15:13

Where were you yesterday lunchtime?

0:15:150:15:17

I was on the river.

0:15:170:15:20

Corporate client.

0:15:200:15:21

I didn't go anywhere near the Hiverna.

0:15:210:15:23

Same goes for the night before.

0:15:230:15:25

And you can give us details of those clients, can you?

0:15:250:15:28

I could. But you're not police, are you? So all you need to know is that it wasn't me.

0:15:280:15:34

Who do you think it was, then?

0:15:340:15:35

None of my business.

0:15:350:15:37

When you live on the river, you learn not to rock the boat.

0:15:370:15:40

So you fell out with Mr Tekler but you get on with his son all right?

0:15:410:15:44

You what?

0:15:440:15:46

Just saw him leaving. What was he doing here?

0:15:460:15:48

You'll have to ask the lad.

0:15:490:15:51

I think it's time you left.

0:15:510:15:53

I've got stuff to do.

0:15:530:15:55

Right, well, thanks for your time.

0:15:550:15:58

Give Len a message from me.

0:15:580:16:00

Tell him it doesn't matter how many awards he's won.

0:16:000:16:03

You serve people up trash for long enough, eventually they'll send it back.

0:16:030:16:07

Yes.

0:16:100:16:11

Well, he definitely hates Tekler enough to want Hiverna to fail.

0:16:170:16:20

Yeah, just have to keep an eye on him.

0:16:200:16:23

Look, you watch out.

0:16:230:16:24

I'm going to put this tracker on the scooter.

0:16:240:16:27

Make sure we know where he goes.

0:16:270:16:28

-Oh, can't I do it?

-No.

0:16:280:16:30

Please, you always get to do it. I need the practice.

0:16:300:16:33

Oh. All right, here...

0:16:330:16:35

-Hurry up.

-OK.

0:16:350:16:37

Have a whiff of this poison.

0:16:530:16:55

Ooh, it's garlic?

0:16:550:16:57

Here.

0:16:570:16:58

Don't know about you, I smell a rat.

0:17:010:17:03

Why on Earth did Mr Tekler keep the rat?

0:17:250:17:28

He didn't. It was chucked in the bins out the back.

0:17:280:17:30

Oh, right. So now you're rummaging behind restaurants in bins looking for dead rats?

0:17:300:17:34

Ever question your life choices, Frank?

0:17:340:17:37

This might be the proof that we need.

0:17:370:17:39

How do you know it's even the same rat?

0:17:390:17:42

Because it still has bits of fermented cabbage in its fur.

0:17:420:17:45

If a toxicology report confirms that the poison is the same as the one on the boat...

0:17:450:17:49

Hold up! You expect me to order a toxicology report for a rat?!

0:17:490:17:54

A man's livelihood is at stake.

0:17:540:17:56

And what about all those customers who got sick?

0:17:560:17:59

If something was put in their food on purpose, then that's

0:17:590:18:01

administering a noxious substance at the very least.

0:18:010:18:04

We're not going to know until Public Health get the lab reports.

0:18:040:18:07

And if a crime was committed, it's for the police to investigate.

0:18:070:18:12

But if you just...

0:18:120:18:13

Forget it, Frank. It's not happening.

0:18:130:18:15

I've got bigger pests to deal with!

0:18:150:18:17

Milo. Hi.

0:18:370:18:39

Can I have a word?

0:18:390:18:41

You're one of the investigators, aren't you?

0:18:410:18:43

That's right. Lu Shakespeare.

0:18:430:18:45

I was just wondering what you were on Juno's Swan earlier today.

0:18:450:18:49

Where?

0:18:490:18:50

The boat belonging to Trevor Cordiss.

0:18:500:18:52

Must've been mistaken.

0:18:520:18:54

Don't think I was.

0:18:560:18:57

I needed some advice.

0:19:020:19:04

From Mr Cordiss?

0:19:040:19:05

He's my godfather.

0:19:050:19:06

-Ah!

-Him and my dad set up Hiverna together.

0:19:060:19:10

That was before the big row.

0:19:100:19:11

Why did they fall out?

0:19:110:19:12

Cos my dad's wrong in the head.

0:19:140:19:16

He convinced himself Trevor was after Mum.

0:19:160:19:18

And you don't think he was?

0:19:180:19:20

Trevor was a bit of a ladies' man, but he never would've betrayed his best mate like that.

0:19:200:19:26

Dad went mad, though - got his lawyers involved and booted Trevor out of the business.

0:19:260:19:31

It's a power thing with Dad - he always needs to make sure everyone knows he's top dog.

0:19:310:19:35

Why did you need advice?

0:19:370:19:39

It's nothing important.

0:19:430:19:45

Your secret's safe with me.

0:19:480:19:50

You know, you could just try talking to her.

0:19:510:19:53

Sebastian was right.

0:20:010:20:03

Milo definitely has a soft spot for the waitress.

0:20:030:20:05

No point him sabotaging the restaurant, then.

0:20:050:20:08

If it's closed, he doesn't get to see her.

0:20:080:20:09

No. Any joy with Marlowe?

0:20:090:20:11

None.

0:20:110:20:13

I think it's time we ask our client how deep his pockets are.

0:20:130:20:16

You should go home.

0:20:200:20:22

I'm not paying you if the restaurant's closed.

0:20:220:20:24

I'm happy to help.

0:20:240:20:25

Mr Tekler's been so kind to me.

0:20:250:20:27

And the council may let us reopen at any moment. We should be ready.

0:20:270:20:31

Hello?

0:20:320:20:34

Ah.

0:20:340:20:36

Is, er, Mr Tekler in?

0:20:360:20:37

He's holed up in the kitchen.

0:20:370:20:39

Doesn't want to be disturbed.

0:20:390:20:41

When he's stressed, he likes to...

0:20:410:20:43

..experiment.

0:20:430:20:44

Does he now?

0:20:440:20:45

I can pass a message.

0:20:450:20:47

We need his permission to order some tests from a private lab.

0:20:470:20:50

Tests?

0:20:500:20:51

It might prove who planted the rat.

0:20:510:20:53

It's just, they're a bit expensive, so...

0:20:530:20:57

Better to forget about it, then.

0:20:570:20:59

It all seems pointless now.

0:20:590:21:01

We should check with Mr Tekler first.

0:21:010:21:03

He did seem very keen to know who was responsible.

0:21:030:21:06

As you wish.

0:21:080:21:10

-Thank you.

-Thanks.

0:21:100:21:12

Hello?

0:21:220:21:24

Hello?

0:21:330:21:34

Have a look at his mouth.

0:22:020:22:04

You can tell he's ingested some kind of poison.

0:22:040:22:06

Did you call this in straight away?

0:22:060:22:08

Course I did!

0:22:080:22:09

Look, the question is did he kill himself or did somebody else do it?

0:22:090:22:12

-It's not something you need to worry about.

-But he was my client.

0:22:120:22:14

"Was" being the operative word.

0:22:140:22:16

Now he's dead, he's mine.

0:22:160:22:17

Where's Marlowe, anyway? I thought you weren't allowed out without a baby-sitter.

0:22:170:22:23

DI Marlowe is on a community engagement course.

0:22:230:22:25

Well, when she comes back, tell her to check Tekler's phone.

0:22:270:22:30

Somebody's been trying to get in touch with him.

0:22:300:22:32

-Also...

-I've got this, Frank.

0:22:320:22:34

Now get off my crime scene.

0:22:340:22:36

He could have a temper, yeah, but it was just his creative spirit.

0:22:410:22:45

I can't believe anyone would do this to him!

0:22:450:22:48

-What, you don't think he killed himself?

-No!

0:22:480:22:51

But his restaurant had been shut down, his reputation taken a hit...

0:22:510:22:55

No, he wouldn't.

0:22:550:22:56

You have to find out who did this to him!

0:22:560:22:58

We'll do everything we can.

0:22:580:23:00

Did you tell Keeler about the hidden camera?

0:23:020:23:04

Huh, happy Sam. Made it perfectly clear he didn't need my help.

0:23:040:23:07

Marlowe's not going to be very happy when she finds out.

0:23:070:23:10

Hopefully, we'll have solved the case by then.

0:23:100:23:12

Solved the case? Our client's dead.

0:23:120:23:15

I know.

0:23:150:23:16

I hate leaving things half-finished.

0:23:160:23:18

So where do we start?

0:23:180:23:20

There were three missed calls on Tekler's phone from "WWW".

0:23:210:23:25

Now, that might have been a supplier or a...

0:23:250:23:28

-We need to get Sebastian to do some digging.

-WWW?

0:23:280:23:32

-Yeah.

-What, like the Wicked Witch of the West?

0:23:320:23:35

I knew there was a reason I put up with you.

0:23:380:23:41

The big news is Paulina wasn't always a food writer.

0:23:440:23:47

And she wasn't always called Paulina.

0:23:470:23:49

I'll send you the details now.

0:23:490:23:51

If you've find out she used to be a rat-catcher, you are getting a pay rise.

0:23:510:23:55

Sadly not.

0:23:550:23:56

But she was a professional chef.

0:23:560:23:58

Even won a Rising Star award at the Birmingham Food Festival.

0:23:580:24:01

It was all going swimmingly until she got a job at a swanky new place just outside Birmingham.

0:24:010:24:05

Guess who was the head chef?

0:24:050:24:07

Not Jamie Oliver, then?

0:24:070:24:08

Len Tekler.

0:24:080:24:09

She left two months later and never worked in a pro kitchen again.

0:24:090:24:12

Sebastian, you are a star.

0:24:120:24:14

Does that mean I can leave early?

0:24:140:24:16

No. It means you can start checking the footage on the hidden camera.

0:24:160:24:20

I want a list of anything that went into Len's mouth.

0:24:200:24:22

I need to know when and how he was poisoned.

0:24:220:24:25

Oh, and take that hat off.

0:24:250:24:27

How did you...?

0:24:270:24:28

It's called a toque!

0:24:290:24:31

Here she comes.

0:24:320:24:34

I said everything I have to say about Len Tekler yesterday.

0:24:380:24:41

Quite frankly, I'd be happy never to hear his name mentioned again.

0:24:410:24:44

Not even now he's dead?

0:24:440:24:45

Shall we go somewhere we can talk?

0:24:480:24:50

There we go.

0:24:530:24:54

It, er, might not look much, but they do a mean lasagne.

0:24:550:24:58

So, you worked for Mr Tekler?

0:25:000:25:02

Yes, for my sins.

0:25:030:25:05

Everyone knows the industry has this macho culture.

0:25:050:25:08

Grown men dipping their genitals into the gazpacho for a laugh.

0:25:080:25:13

Forcing new recruits to eat raw chillies until they're sick.

0:25:130:25:16

But with Len Tekler, it was worse.

0:25:160:25:18

How do you mean?

0:25:180:25:20

Well, he'd come up behind me while I was cooking, hands everywhere.

0:25:200:25:24

He'd try and corner me in the pantry.

0:25:240:25:26

I mean, I knew I had to get out of there.

0:25:260:25:29

After all, how can you cook for a living when you spend every minute

0:25:290:25:31

-you're at work feeling sick to your stomach?

-So you left?

0:25:310:25:35

One day he offered me a promotion.

0:25:350:25:37

But, of course, there was one condition.

0:25:370:25:39

When I turned him down and told him that I was quitting,

0:25:390:25:42

he said I'd never work in a professional kitchen again.

0:25:420:25:46

Thing is, after working with Len Tekler, I never wanted to.

0:25:470:25:51

It took a while to get over it, but then I reinvented myself.

0:25:520:25:56

New name, new hair, new career.

0:25:560:25:59

By the time I turned up to review Hiverna 15 years later, well, he didn't even recognise me.

0:25:590:26:04

To him, I was just another slab of meat.

0:26:040:26:07

Well. Anyone could see why you'd want revenge.

0:26:070:26:10

The four horsemen, like you wrote in your blog - vermin, sick...

0:26:100:26:16

You think I'd kill him?

0:26:160:26:18

No!

0:26:180:26:20

I wanted him to have a long, miserable life.

0:26:200:26:23

Being Len Tekler was his crime and his punishment.

0:26:230:26:26

And I'm not the only one who wanted to get their own back.

0:26:260:26:30

What's this?

0:26:300:26:32

It arrived anonymously this morning.

0:26:320:26:34

So this is why you were calling him earlier?

0:26:400:26:43

Well, the editor at the Stratford Star refused to publish unless I gave Len Tekler a chance to respond.

0:26:430:26:48

But it's obvious that whoever sent this wanted to destroy Tekler's reputation for good.

0:26:480:26:53

So, Len Tekler owned a restaurant with his brother, Michael.

0:26:590:27:03

Shut down after a few months.

0:27:030:27:06

Michael killed himself.

0:27:060:27:07

Well, not according to this, he didn't.

0:27:070:27:10

-Oh!

-I just don't get it.

0:27:100:27:12

This is all happened, what, the better part of 20 years ago.

0:27:120:27:15

Why come after Tekler now? Who would have a grudge against him?

0:27:150:27:18

Trevor Cordiss said he had his first restaurant with Len.

0:27:180:27:22

Are we even sure it's the same place?

0:27:220:27:24

Ah, look, here.

0:27:240:27:26

This names Trevor as the third partner.

0:27:260:27:28

And he had a motive, didn't he? Cos Len cut him out of Hiverna unfairly.

0:27:280:27:33

I'll check the tracker.

0:27:330:27:34

Ah, no joy.

0:27:370:27:40

According to this, the scooter hasn't moved all day.

0:27:400:27:42

Maybe he walked! We really should give all this to Marlowe.

0:27:420:27:45

And what does this prove? No, I need to look him straight in the eye.

0:27:450:27:50

A list of everything Mr Tekler consumed in the kitchen in the three hours prior to his death.

0:27:500:27:57

That was only marginally less painful than an episode of Hell's Kitchen USA.

0:27:570:28:00

Thanks, Sebastian.

0:28:000:28:02

Aren't you going to read it?

0:28:020:28:04

Later.

0:28:040:28:05

Unbelievable!

0:28:070:28:09

KNOCKING

0:28:170:28:18

Ah.

0:28:210:28:22

Come in.

0:28:220:28:24

Join me in a toast to an old mate.

0:28:240:28:25

I thought you hated each other.

0:28:260:28:29

Love, hate...

0:28:290:28:31

There's two sides of the same coin.

0:28:310:28:33

Talking of which, he owed me money.

0:28:340:28:37

So, what do you want now?

0:28:370:28:40

Ah.

0:28:440:28:45

Is it true?

0:28:460:28:48

In a manner of speaking, yes.

0:28:490:28:51

Because the newspaper report said that Michael killed himself.

0:28:510:28:54

Well, he did, yes.

0:28:540:28:56

So...?

0:28:580:29:00

Len and I wanted to start our own place.

0:29:000:29:03

Trouble was, we were both skint,

0:29:040:29:06

so Len convinced his brother to use all his savings,

0:29:060:29:11

in return for a cut of the future profits.

0:29:110:29:13

Except there weren't any.

0:29:130:29:15

Poor bloke.

0:29:150:29:17

Wanted to buy a house with his girlfriend.

0:29:170:29:19

Instead Len blew the lot on experimental cookery that nobody wanted to eat, left him bankrupt.

0:29:190:29:25

The day the restaurant closed down for good, Michael hanged himself.

0:29:270:29:33

Why didn't you tell us this before?

0:29:340:29:37

It's not something I'm proud of.

0:29:370:29:39

Michael was a good man.

0:29:400:29:42

I should've seen the signs.

0:29:440:29:46

Who else knows about all this?

0:29:470:29:49

Len, obviously.

0:29:490:29:52

And he was with Cecilia by then, so she'd know.

0:29:520:29:55

Other than that, I just...

0:29:550:29:57

KNOCKING

0:29:570:29:58

Police! Mr Cordiss, it's the police!

0:29:580:30:02

I thought you were on some course?

0:30:090:30:11

Yeah, I was,

0:30:110:30:12

then I got a call from the lab confirming that Len was poisoned with zinc phosphide.

0:30:120:30:16

Stinks of garlic.

0:30:160:30:18

Yeah, we noticed.

0:30:180:30:19

So it wouldn't be out of place in a kitchen.

0:30:190:30:21

But its most common use is...

0:30:210:30:23

Rat poison.

0:30:230:30:24

You were right, Frank.

0:30:240:30:25

We should've tested the rat.

0:30:250:30:27

Well, we're going to do a chemical analysis of the samples that we've taken from the traps on the boat,

0:30:270:30:31

and we're pretty confident that there'll be a match.

0:30:310:30:33

But couldn't the poison have come from anywhere?

0:30:330:30:35

In theory, but zinc phosphide is quite old-school.

0:30:350:30:38

And most traps use anti-coagulants nowadays.

0:30:380:30:41

And, well, considering Mr Cordiss' connection to the victim...

0:30:410:30:44

That's still not enough to charge him, though.

0:30:440:30:46

No, not by itself, but we do have a witness.

0:30:460:30:49

A man matching Mr Cordiss' description was seen in the alleyway

0:30:490:30:52

behind the restaurant prior to Len's death.

0:30:520:30:54

-Ready, ma'am?

-But didn't Trevor have an alibi for when the dead rat was planted on the food?

0:30:540:30:59

Maybe the rat was planted by someone else.

0:30:590:31:02

We investigate human deaths, not rat ones!

0:31:020:31:04

Yeah, we'll take it from here.

0:31:060:31:08

Let me guess.

0:31:100:31:12

You wanted to look him in the eye and now you have, you're not sure he did it?

0:31:120:31:16

Something just doesn't smell right.

0:31:160:31:18

Mm.

0:31:180:31:19

Christina! Who was the witness?

0:31:190:31:23

Sorry.

0:31:240:31:26

This place stinks.

0:31:260:31:27

Ah, don't worry on our account.

0:31:270:31:30

We won't be long.

0:31:300:31:32

We heard you made a statement to the police.

0:31:320:31:34

We were wondering why you didn't tell us about the man you saw?

0:31:340:31:37

Er, I'm so sorry, I must've still been in shock.

0:31:370:31:41

It wasn't until they started asking me all those questions I remembered.

0:31:410:31:47

What time did you see him?

0:31:470:31:48

Around...one o'clock, maybe.

0:31:480:31:51

Mrs Tekler sent me to get milk -

0:31:510:31:54

she said she'd run out and she wanted to make Mr Tekler a cup of coffee.

0:31:540:31:58

So you just went outside and you saw him?

0:31:580:32:00

No, so, it was when I got back.

0:32:000:32:01

He was right outside the back door, and he saw me and zoomed off.

0:32:010:32:05

How long were you gone for?

0:32:050:32:07

Five minutes, tops.

0:32:070:32:09

Mrs Tekler wanted me to go to the supermarket cos it's cheaper, but it's a bit of a hike, so I just went

0:32:090:32:15

to the corner shop and paid the difference myself.

0:32:150:32:17

Would anyone else have seen this man?

0:32:170:32:19

I wouldn't know.

0:32:190:32:21

There is one thing that's been bugging me, and I should've told the police, but...

0:32:230:32:28

-What is it?

-I've never seen Mr Tekler have milk in his coffee.

0:32:280:32:32

Maybe I threw it away.

0:32:350:32:37

Look at me.

0:32:370:32:38

My bouche is not amused.

0:32:380:32:40

Dear Sebastian.

0:32:400:32:42

We're really sorry that we rushed off earlier.

0:32:420:32:45

Please can we look at the list?

0:32:450:32:46

Now, was that so hard? Won't make a difference.

0:32:460:32:50

All the ingredients Mr Tekler used he got from the pantry.

0:32:500:32:53

There, look. Ten past one.

0:32:530:32:54

One hot drink. That must be the coffee Dita was talking about.

0:32:540:32:57

Did he make it himself?

0:32:570:32:59

Well...

0:32:590:33:00

Now you ask, I can't remember.

0:33:000:33:02

This is the first time we see him with the drink.

0:33:090:33:12

Er, go back a bit.

0:33:120:33:14

There.

0:33:160:33:18

Someone left it for him.

0:33:180:33:20

Play it again.

0:33:210:33:22

Stop!

0:33:220:33:24

Zoom in.

0:33:240:33:25

Look at that ring.

0:33:290:33:30

So Cecilia must've sent Dita off to get milk just to get rid of her,

0:33:370:33:40

only she came back sooner than expected.

0:33:400:33:43

What I want to know, Frank, is why you withheld the evidence in the first place?

0:33:430:33:46

Do you know what? It completely slipped my mind.

0:33:460:33:49

I-I didn't even know the camera was still recording.

0:33:490:33:51

Well, no thanks to you, we got lucky.

0:33:510:33:53

Yeah, so the mug was placed in the dishwasher but it hadn't been turned on since Mr Tekler's death,

0:33:530:33:58

so it still contained traces of zinc phosphide.

0:33:580:34:01

And other than Mr Tekler's, the only prints on it were Cecilia's.

0:34:010:34:05

-Where is she?

-She's in custody.

0:34:050:34:06

We picked her up last night.

0:34:060:34:08

And when we searched her room, we found a bottle of syrup of ipecac.

0:34:080:34:11

Syrup of what ecac?

0:34:110:34:12

Ipecac. It's a powerful emetic.

0:34:120:34:15

Put a few drops in a soup and, hey presto, a restaurant full of sick customers.

0:34:150:34:18

So what about this Trevor Cordiss? Sounds like him and Cecilia might have some history.

0:34:180:34:22

Yeah, we're going to hold on to him for now. There's a high probability that the poison came from his boat.

0:34:220:34:26

And with our witness identifying him and his vehicle, we can charge him with murder under joint enterprise.

0:34:260:34:32

So on that note, we've got paperwork to do.

0:34:320:34:34

Withhold evidence from me again and we're going to have a serious, serious falling out.

0:34:340:34:39

And here's me thinking we were BFFs.

0:34:390:34:41

Oh, sad you don't get to bring in the bad guys any more, isn't it?

0:34:470:34:50

-The vehicle...

-What?

0:34:500:34:52

Keeler said it was Dita that identified the vehicle.

0:34:520:34:54

Well, according to the tracking device, Trevor's scooter never went anywhere near the restaurant!

0:34:540:34:59

Maybe Dita misremembered? Maybe he wasn't on the scooter at all.

0:34:590:35:02

She said she didn't recognise him.

0:35:020:35:03

How would she have even known he owned a scooter?

0:35:030:35:05

-Maybe she's seen him out and about.

-Or she's been on the boat.

0:35:050:35:08

Or she's been lying from the very start!

0:35:080:35:10

-What are you doing?

-I'm going over the background checks.

0:35:120:35:15

We must've missed something. I mean, why would she want to frame Cordiss?

0:35:150:35:18

Her middle name is Ursula?

0:35:180:35:19

According to this, yeah, why?

0:35:190:35:21

Rings a bell...

0:35:210:35:22

Yeah. Read that.

0:35:260:35:27

The brother's girlfriend.

0:35:270:35:29

Could be a coincidence?

0:35:290:35:31

We need to see Dita's birth certificate.

0:35:310:35:33

Dita, it's Lu Shakespeare.

0:35:430:35:47

Are you there?

0:35:490:35:51

Keep watch.

0:35:530:35:55

Dita?

0:36:070:36:09

Dita?

0:36:090:36:10

We're too late.

0:36:150:36:17

We'll have to go to Marlowe, see if the police can find her.

0:36:170:36:20

Can you smell that?

0:36:220:36:23

What is it?

0:36:230:36:25

I think it's petrol.

0:36:250:36:26

Why would she be keeping petrol here?

0:36:260:36:28

You don't think...?

0:36:280:36:29

Let's go round the back.

0:36:410:36:42

Dita!

0:36:500:36:52

Stay back.

0:36:530:36:54

You want to finish what you started, don't you? Destroy Len's legacy for ever.

0:36:560:37:00

Only fair.

0:37:000:37:01

He destroyed my life.

0:37:010:37:03

An eye for an eye.

0:37:030:37:04

He's your uncle. He-he's family.

0:37:040:37:06

Len's not my family! He's my father's murderer.

0:37:060:37:09

Your father killed himself.

0:37:090:37:10

Because of Len! Len tricked him into paying for that stupid restaurant.

0:37:100:37:15

He took everything my father had and threw it away.

0:37:150:37:18

And because of him, I was left with nobody!

0:37:180:37:21

What about your mum?

0:37:210:37:23

What?

0:37:230:37:24

Ursula.

0:37:240:37:26

Well, Len, wouldn't even talk to her, cut her off completely.

0:37:260:37:29

Couple of weeks after Dad died, Mum found out she was pregnant with me.

0:37:300:37:35

Went to see the three of them - Len, Trevor, Cecilia.

0:37:350:37:38

Asked for help.

0:37:390:37:41

They sent her packing.

0:37:420:37:43

Reckoned she was trying it on!

0:37:430:37:45

What did she do?

0:37:450:37:47

What could she do? She couldn't cope.

0:37:470:37:49

She started using, and...

0:37:500:37:52

..after she overdosed, I was put in care.

0:37:540:37:57

Brought up by strangers because my uncle cared more about cooking

0:37:580:38:02

than he ever cared about another human being.

0:38:020:38:05

So when you turned up here to get a job, Len didn't even know who you were?

0:38:050:38:08

You wanted to ruin him, didn't you? First with the rat...

0:38:080:38:11

SCREAMING

0:38:200:38:22

I was happy to take the plate in myself, but it worked so much better when he did it.

0:38:220:38:26

And when that didn't shut the restaurant down, you put the ipecac syrup in the food. Clever, that.

0:38:260:38:31

Make everybody ill.

0:38:310:38:33

Ruining his reputation wasn't enough, was it?

0:38:330:38:35

You wanted to see him dead.

0:38:350:38:37

You knew the police would need a witness to tie Trevor Cordiss to the murder,

0:38:370:38:40

so you made up a story about seeing him outside when Cecilia sent you for the milk.

0:38:400:38:44

And you made it look like Cecilia was lying,

0:38:440:38:46

that the milk was just an excuse for her to get rid of you

0:38:460:38:49

so that she could get the poison from Trevor,

0:38:490:38:51

when in fact, you'd already got the poison from the boat.

0:38:510:38:54

And it was you that made Len's coffee, wasn't it?

0:38:540:38:58

And it was you who made sure it was Cecilia gave it to him.

0:38:580:39:01

I made Mr Tekler a coffee. Shall I take it to him?

0:39:120:39:15

No, I'll do it.

0:39:150:39:17

If you're waiting for me to say I'm sorry, I'm not.

0:39:230:39:27

Len had it coming.

0:39:270:39:29

And as for Trevor and Cecilia, they could've helped Mum, but they didn't.

0:39:290:39:35

So they can rot in jail for all I care.

0:39:350:39:38

We're going to have to call the police.

0:39:380:39:42

You won't.

0:39:420:39:44

I'm not going to jail.

0:39:440:39:45

Not for him.

0:39:450:39:47

I'm not going anywhere, and neither are you.

0:39:470:39:52

You see, I'm pretty sure Len Tekler is in hell, but I'm thinking maybe we should just go and check.

0:39:520:39:57

-Dita, no!

-No!

-Wait!

0:39:570:39:59

What're you doing here?

0:39:590:40:01

Look, Milo doesn't deserve this, either. He's your cousin!

0:40:020:40:05

-We're cousins?!

-Don't do this, Dita, please.

0:40:050:40:08

Call the police!

0:40:130:40:14

Dita! Stop!

0:40:280:40:30

Aw!

0:40:310:40:33

Does that ever actually work? Just shouting "stop!" at someone?

0:40:330:40:36

Not often, I'll admit.

0:40:360:40:38

Any ideas?

0:40:380:40:39

Have you ever commandeered a swan?

0:40:430:40:45

-Oh!

-Where are you going?!

0:40:450:40:48

-Come on!

-You're going the wrong way!

0:40:480:40:51

-What?

-Let me steer.

0:40:510:40:52

-No, I'm steering. I'll steer. Get off.

-Steer it the right way!

0:40:520:40:56

How could she be quicker? There's two of us and only one of her!

0:40:560:40:59

Well, just pedal faster!

0:40:590:41:01

Pedal faster.

0:41:010:41:02

I'm going as fast as I can!

0:41:020:41:04

Come on, we can do this!

0:41:040:41:06

-I'm doing it.

-Come on!

0:41:060:41:08

Let me go!

0:41:080:41:10

He deserved it!

0:41:100:41:11

Nah, can't do that.

0:41:110:41:12

No, we're doing a citizens arrest for the murder of Len Tekler.

0:41:120:41:16

Len Tekler, yes.

0:41:160:41:18

SIRENS

0:41:180:41:20

No! I wouldn't do that, Dita.

0:41:200:41:22

Please, Dita.

0:41:220:41:24

If you really want to ruin the reputation of Len Tekler, then just tell everyone the truth.

0:41:240:41:29

How're you feeling now?

0:41:430:41:45

Like Chris Froome at the end of the Tour de France.

0:41:450:41:47

I didn't think you were performing tonight?

0:41:510:41:54

I'm not.

0:41:540:41:55

Just haven't done any laundry in a while.

0:41:550:41:58

Da-da!

0:41:580:42:00

Just to thank you both for going above and beyond the call of duty over the past couple of days.

0:42:000:42:04

Aw, you shouldn't have!

0:42:040:42:05

He most certainly should.

0:42:050:42:06

Sebastian, American Hot.

0:42:060:42:09

I love a hot American.

0:42:090:42:10

Lu.

0:42:100:42:12

Hawaiian.

0:42:120:42:13

Old-school!

0:42:130:42:14

Thank you muchly.

0:42:140:42:15

And a meat feast for Frankie.

0:42:150:42:17

Here's to Shakespeare and Hathaway.

0:42:170:42:19

We have saved Cecilia and Trevor from jail,

0:42:190:42:23

we have put a murderer behind bars

0:42:230:42:25

and Milo has even promised to settle the bill.

0:42:250:42:28

SHE SCREAMS

0:42:290:42:31

HE LAUGHS

0:42:310:42:33

I couldn't resist!

0:42:330:42:34

Oh!

0:42:360:42:38

Frank and Lu feel the heat in the kitchen when they investigate a campaign of culinary sabotage.
