-Happy?

-Yeah.

0:00:020:00:04

Me too.

0:00:040:00:05

I've never felt this way about anyone.

0:00:060:00:09

I know we've not known each other that long, but I know that

0:00:090:00:14

this feels right.

0:00:140:00:16

And I... This might sound crazy.

0:00:160:00:20

But what would you say to us moving in together?

0:00:210:00:24

DOG BARKS

0:00:390:00:40

-It's not like you're getting any younger.

-Give it a rest, Mum.

0:01:170:01:20

-You got plans this weekend?

-You trying to get shot of me?

0:01:200:01:22

-I'm just saying - it's time you went to bed with something other than work.

-Mum!

0:01:220:01:26

Well, last night, you feel asleep with the light on. Again.

0:01:260:01:28

With your glasses on. Again.

0:01:280:01:30

With work papers falling out of your hand.

0:01:300:01:32

Morning.

0:01:320:01:33

Oh, you tell her, Davey. She won't listen to her mother.

0:01:330:01:35

What, and you think she'd listen to me?

0:01:350:01:37

You're not here this early to gang up on me.

0:01:370:01:39

No. No, I wish.

0:01:390:01:41

A body's been found near Baillie's Causeway.

0:01:410:01:44

OK, give me five minutes.

0:01:440:01:46

Honestly, Davey. Tell her to give herself a shake.

0:01:460:01:49

Get a life.

0:01:490:01:50

I heard that.

0:01:500:01:51

No ID on him.

0:02:100:02:12

Pathologist reckons he's been there for several hours.

0:02:120:02:15

If you look at his clothes, they're wet.

0:02:150:02:17

It was raining last night, but they think it stopped about 1am, apparently.

0:02:170:02:21

-So he's been here all night?

-Yeah.

0:02:210:02:24

We think he lost control of the car, swerved off the road.

0:02:240:02:27

Probably drunk driving.

0:02:270:02:28

Got out and was hit by a passing vehicle.

0:02:280:02:31

Hit and run?

0:02:320:02:34

Looks that way. No CCTV this far out of town, though.

0:02:340:02:38

PHONE RINGS

0:02:380:02:39

Excuse me.

0:02:410:02:42

Hello. ..Yeah, go on, let's have it.

0:02:420:02:45

..All right, OK. Good work.

0:02:450:02:47

We've got an ID from the registration number.

0:02:490:02:52

Jason Daniels.

0:02:530:02:54

"JD is king".

0:02:560:02:58

Poor old JD.

0:03:000:03:01

Are you sure this is all right, Mrs Daniels? He has sustained some serious facial injuries.

0:03:040:03:10

I need to see him.

0:03:100:03:11

Is this your husband, Jason Daniels?

0:03:180:03:20

SHE LAUGHS

0:03:220:03:23

No. No, no, it's not him.

0:03:230:03:26

It's the shock.

0:03:260:03:28

Sorry. Sorry, I, er...

0:03:280:03:30

It's fine. Take as long as you need.

0:03:300:03:32

Do you know who this man is?

0:03:320:03:33

No. No, can you cover him up?

0:03:330:03:36

Are you sure?

0:03:360:03:38

Yes, quite sure. Can you cover him up now, please?

0:03:380:03:42

I'm very sorry. Is there anything I can do?

0:03:420:03:45

No. I... I need to go.

0:03:450:03:47

I-I want to talk to my husband.

0:03:470:03:49

So do we.

0:03:490:03:51

Davey...

0:03:510:03:53

-Yes. Sorry, Mrs Daniels. If you'd like to follow me out.

-Thank you.

0:03:540:03:58

I knew I'd find you in here.

0:04:040:04:06

Yeah. I'll be there in a minute.

0:04:060:04:07

Whoa.

0:04:090:04:10

Have you seen this?

0:04:130:04:14

What?

0:04:140:04:16

Well, I've heard of blowing your own trumpet, but even still.

0:04:160:04:19

Seriously, Clint, can you show some respect?

0:04:190:04:22

No, look.

0:04:220:04:23

"Paradise awaits".

0:04:280:04:30

OK. We're back to square one.

0:04:350:04:37

So I'm going to need you to get me everything you can on Jason Daniels.

0:04:370:04:40

Where he went to school, how he made his money.

0:04:400:04:41

Did he owe money? Did he have a driver?

0:04:410:04:44

Anything. OK?

0:04:440:04:46

Have the forensic guys finished?

0:04:460:04:47

Yeah, all secured, Sarge.

0:04:470:04:48

All right.

0:04:480:04:49

We've traced it to a Fred Clegg.

0:05:220:05:23

And we found "Dad" in his list of contacts

0:05:230:05:25

so his folks are on the way in now.

0:05:250:05:27

Can you do me a favour?

0:05:270:05:28

Can you speak to them for me, please?

0:05:280:05:31

Yes, of course.

0:05:310:05:32

Thanks. I've got Jason Daniels coming in for interview.

0:05:320:05:35

Who is this "A" person?

0:05:350:05:37

"CAN'T W8 2 C U AGAIN".

0:05:370:05:39

Well, it's his girlfriend, by the looks of it.

0:05:390:05:41

What makes you so sure it's a woman?

0:05:410:05:43

Judging by the picture she sent.

0:05:430:05:45

PHONE BEEPS

0:05:450:05:46

Oh, yeah, that would clinch it.

0:05:460:05:48

Yeah, it would, wouldn't it? And there's the text messages.

0:05:480:05:51

"Can't stop thinking about you."

0:05:510:05:52

"Can't wait to see you again." Really lovey-dovey.

0:05:520:05:54

Up until last night and then it's...

0:05:540:05:56

"Sorry about what I said." "I didn't mean to push you away."

0:05:560:05:59

"Please can we go back to the way we were?"

0:05:590:06:01

She's got it bad, hasn't she?

0:06:010:06:02

Have you spoken to her?

0:06:020:06:03

No, not yet.

0:06:030:06:04

I want to get a positive ID from his parents first.

0:06:040:06:07

-KNOCK ON DOOR

-Yeah?

0:06:070:06:08

Jason Daniels.

0:06:080:06:09

Ah, right. Thank you. Mr Daniels. DS Higgins.

0:06:090:06:12

My colleague, Jane Kennedy, the coroner.

0:06:120:06:15

Pleased to meet you. I'll leave you to it.

0:06:150:06:17

Yeah. Have a seat.

0:06:200:06:21

Right. I won't beat around the bush.

0:06:230:06:25

Do you know this man?

0:06:260:06:28

Is that the guy that stole my car?

0:06:280:06:29

Are you saying your car was stolen?

0:06:290:06:31

While I was away, obviously. Is there any damage?

0:06:310:06:35

No. It's just a slight bump.

0:06:350:06:37

That's a relief. When can I get it back?

0:06:370:06:39

A day or two, I should think.

0:06:390:06:41

So, the man in the photo. You don't know him, no?

0:06:410:06:44

No.

0:06:440:06:45

Right, OK.

0:06:450:06:46

Look, I'm very sorry about the mix-up this morning.

0:06:460:06:48

Your wife tried to call you. So did we.

0:06:480:06:50

But we just got the answerphone.

0:06:500:06:52

Have you any idea what you put her through this morning?

0:06:520:06:54

Ah, well, like I said, I'm very sorry.

0:06:540:06:56

We just have to go with the information that's in front of us.

0:06:560:06:59

Yeah, I appreciate that, Sergeant.

0:06:590:07:00

So I won't be taking it any further - for the moment.

0:07:000:07:04

Terrible business.

0:07:070:07:09

He might've been a thief, but to leave him at the side of the road, like a dog...

0:07:100:07:14

If there's anything I can do to help with your enquiries?

0:07:140:07:16

Ah, yeah, actually. It would be handy to get your fingerprints.

0:07:160:07:20

Just for the purposes of elimination.

0:07:200:07:21

Should take about ten minutes.

0:07:210:07:23

Of course.

0:07:230:07:24

And if you need anything else, you can get me in the office.

0:07:240:07:27

Ah, right. OK, great, thanks.

0:07:290:07:31

OK, I'll show you the way.

0:07:310:07:33

I'll let you know as soon as we have any information.

0:07:340:07:36

Take care.

0:07:360:07:37

Thanks, Sheila.

0:07:410:07:43

Hey.

0:07:430:07:44

That his folks?

0:07:440:07:45

Yes. We've got a positive ID.

0:07:450:07:48

Everyone knew him as Fred, but to his mum, he was always Freddy.

0:07:480:07:51

PM results.

0:07:530:07:55

Right, shall we?

0:07:560:07:57

"Examination of the scalp shows evidence of bruising.

0:08:010:08:03

"Scalp lacerations with comminuted, depressed skull fractures.

0:08:030:08:08

"Extradural and subdural bleeding..."

0:08:080:08:10

I can read, Davey.

0:08:100:08:11

"Not compatible with a pedestrian road traffic collision."

0:08:160:08:19

We've got blood where his head was banged on the door.

0:08:230:08:26

There are two sets of prints all over the car.

0:08:260:08:28

But there's a third set on the driver's side door handle there,

0:08:280:08:31

and on the seat there.

0:08:310:08:32

And if you come round here...

0:08:320:08:34

..we've got some scratches there. Traces of black paint.

0:08:350:08:39

So...?

0:08:400:08:41

We think he was run off the road, dragged from the car, beaten up.

0:08:410:08:44

And left for dead.

0:08:440:08:46

Yeah, well, we know that he lay there for several hours.

0:08:460:08:48

So, it's either a murder or a serious assault gone wrong.

0:08:480:08:51

Or it wasn't meant for him?

0:08:510:08:53

Yeah. Well...

0:08:540:08:55

..that number plate does rather scream, "Here I am.

0:08:560:08:59

"Come and get me," doesn't it?

0:08:590:09:01

So... Fred steals a car for whatever reason.

0:09:010:09:05

Takes a hit for Jason Daniels.

0:09:050:09:07

Yeah. Either way, a serious crime.

0:09:070:09:09

So, what's next?

0:09:090:09:11

Well, I'm going to go to Fred Clegg's flat.

0:09:110:09:13

Then I've gotta see this "A" woman.

0:09:130:09:15

Give her the bad news.

0:09:150:09:16

OK. I'll see you later, then.

0:09:160:09:18

Hang on.

0:09:180:09:20

-What?

-Well, are you busy just now?

0:09:200:09:22

Why?

0:09:230:09:25

Oh, come on. You know this is the bit I hate.

0:09:250:09:28

Breaking bad news? Or asking me for help?

0:09:280:09:30

Both. You're much better at it than I am.

0:09:300:09:33

-Is that a please?

-Is that a yes?

0:09:330:09:34

Yes, go on, then.

0:09:340:09:35

Oh, wow! "J Daniels Developments"?

0:09:370:09:40

Yeah, he's converting an old church into 40 new harbourside flats.

0:09:400:09:44

And he owns a nightclub, too.

0:09:440:09:47

The Lighthouse, you know it?

0:09:470:09:48

No.

0:09:480:09:49

He's Mr Big Shot, you know. A player.

0:09:490:09:53

I don't know any Fred Clegg. What's this about?

0:10:060:10:09

Do you know this man?

0:10:110:10:12

That's Jeremy.

0:10:120:10:14

Jeremy?

0:10:140:10:15

Jeremy Dutton. Why do you want to know?

0:10:150:10:18

No... He can't be. No!

0:10:270:10:29

-What's going on?

-Oh, Steve!

0:10:290:10:31

Hey, it's all right.

0:10:310:10:33

Jeremy. He's dead!

0:10:330:10:34

What? Dead?

0:10:340:10:36

Oh, yeah, sorry. DS Higgins, South Dart Police.

0:10:360:10:39

This is my colleague, Jane Kennedy. She's the coroner.

0:10:390:10:42

You're?

0:10:420:10:43

Steve Johnson.

0:10:430:10:44

My ex.

0:10:440:10:46

Look, I understand this is very difficult,

0:10:460:10:47

but we really need you to tell us

0:10:470:10:50

everything you know about, er, Jeremy?

0:10:500:10:52

He was an airline pilot.

0:10:520:10:55

Er, no, actually. He was a window cleaner.

0:10:550:10:57

What?

0:10:570:10:58

And his name wasn't Jeremy. It was Fred. Fred Clegg.

0:10:580:11:02

How did you meet him?

0:11:020:11:03

On a dating site - Perfect Pair.

0:11:030:11:07

Look, there must be some mistake.

0:11:080:11:10

He was loaded. That car of his,

0:11:100:11:13

I mean, the starting price is 70 grand.

0:11:130:11:16

Well, we have reason to believe that he stole it.

0:11:160:11:18

When?

0:11:180:11:19

Last night.

0:11:190:11:20

No, you're wrong. It's his car.

0:11:200:11:23

He's always got it.

0:11:230:11:25

He can't be a window cleaner. He can't be.

0:11:260:11:30

Can you think of anyone who would want to hurt him?

0:11:300:11:32

Look, she hardly knew the guy.

0:11:320:11:33

Excuse me, but how did you hurt your hand?

0:11:330:11:36

Comes with the job. I'm a bouncer.

0:11:380:11:41

Where?

0:11:410:11:42

Pubs, mostly.

0:11:420:11:43

I can't believe he's dead.

0:11:430:11:46

Look, she's upset. You better leave.

0:11:460:11:49

Yeah, sorry.

0:11:490:11:50

Yeah, but you were one of the last people to see him alive.

0:11:500:11:52

So we will want to talk to you again. All right.

0:11:520:11:55

We'll be in touch.

0:11:550:11:57

-Wow.

-Ooh. Classy.

0:12:100:12:14

Yeah, looks like he's going for the old sexy bachelor pad vibe.

0:12:140:12:19

What?

0:12:190:12:21

I don't think anyone says "pad" any more.

0:12:210:12:23

Don't they?

0:12:230:12:24

No!

0:12:240:12:25

Come and have a look at this!

0:12:290:12:31

This room looks like it's seen some action.

0:12:310:12:34

-Or don't we say "action" anymore?

-How would I know?

0:12:340:12:38

-He's certainly got a one-track mind.

-Yeah.

0:12:380:12:40

Looks like he broke the bed.

0:12:450:12:46

What are you doing?

0:12:460:12:48

PHONE RINGS

0:12:580:13:00

Hello, Yes?

0:13:000:13:02

..No, it's all right, go on.

0:13:020:13:04

Really?

0:13:050:13:07

..No, OK, good. Good work. OK, bye.

0:13:070:13:11

Bye.

0:13:110:13:12

We've got it. The connection between Fred Clegg and Jason Daniels.

0:13:130:13:17

Sergeant.

0:13:480:13:50

I asked you specifically to come and see me in the office.

0:13:520:13:55

Surely this can wait till tomorrow?

0:13:550:13:56

I'm afraid it can't, no.

0:13:560:13:58

I'm sorry about this, darling.

0:13:580:14:00

OK, I'm back. Where were we?

0:14:010:14:03

Sorry, Mrs Daniels, could you stay?

0:14:030:14:04

You need to hear this.

0:14:040:14:06

I'll call you back in ten minutes.

0:14:060:14:08

We now know that Fred Clegg's death wasn't caused

0:14:100:14:13

by a hit and run, but by a vicious attack.

0:14:130:14:15

That's awful.

0:14:150:14:17

Yeah.

0:14:170:14:18

But what we don't know is if that attack was meant for him or for you.

0:14:180:14:21

What?

0:14:210:14:22

So, can you think of anyone who might want to harm you?

0:14:220:14:25

Well, you don't get to be this successful without making a few enemies.

0:14:250:14:28

What do you mean "enemies"?

0:14:280:14:30

You know, business rivals, resentful losers,

0:14:300:14:32

that kind of thing.

0:14:320:14:33

Look, if the attack was meant for you,

0:14:330:14:35

then you might still be at risk.

0:14:350:14:36

That's what you've come to say, isn't it?

0:14:360:14:38

So you need to be extra careful. Promise me.

0:14:380:14:41

0:14:410:14:42

I'm sorry, I really need to take this.

0:14:430:14:47

She's a very busy woman, my wife.

0:14:470:14:49

She's a fund manager, you know. One of the best.

0:14:510:14:54

Er, could you do me a favour?

0:14:550:14:57

Would you mind looking at this photo again, please?

0:14:570:14:59

Actually. I wonder... Could be the window cleaner at my offices. Is it?

0:15:040:15:11

-It is. Yes.

-That's it.

0:15:130:15:15

He cleaned the windows inside and out.

0:15:150:15:18

Actually, he's been in my office.

0:15:180:15:20

He could've taken my car keys, stolen my car.

0:15:210:15:24

Well, that car was used on several occasions.

0:15:240:15:27

Are you saying he stole it repeatedly?

0:15:270:15:29

-He must've done.

-I find that hard to believe.

0:15:290:15:32

I know. It's outrageous.

0:15:320:15:34

But now I come to think of it, I lost a set of car keys a few months ago.

0:15:340:15:38

He must've nicked them and taken the car whenever he liked.

0:15:380:15:41

You must have a high level of security there, though.

0:15:410:15:44

Yes, but I'm out and about all day and I'm often away on business.

0:15:440:15:46

I leave it all over the place.

0:15:460:15:49

I find that very hard to believe.

0:15:490:15:50

It's just a car. I'm not precious about it.

0:15:500:15:54

"It's just a car. I'm not precious about it."

0:16:000:16:02

I mean, how crass is that?

0:16:020:16:03

I don't think his wife would disagree with you.

0:16:030:16:05

-What do you mean?

-You didn't see the way she looked at him?

0:16:050:16:07

No, but I saw her reaction when she saw the body.

0:16:070:16:10

She was pretty shaken.

0:16:100:16:11

Could be because it wasn't him.

0:16:110:16:13

I think she's worth checking out.

0:16:130:16:14

Oh, right, so you think she's hired a hitman and he's got the wrong guy because of the stolen car.

0:16:140:16:18

Pretty rubbish hitman.

0:16:180:16:19

I've got a feeling about her.

0:16:190:16:21

Wrong tree, love.

0:16:210:16:23

Hey! What do you think you're doing?

0:16:300:16:33

I believe this is your car?

0:16:330:16:35

What if it is?

0:16:350:16:36

How did you get that dent on the side?

0:16:360:16:39

Some woman ran into me. Why?

0:16:390:16:42

What's this about?

0:16:420:16:43

Where were you on Sunday night?

0:16:430:16:45

Last Sunday? At my mum's.

0:16:450:16:47

Putting up her curtains.

0:16:470:16:48

Oh, that's nice. Till when?

0:16:480:16:50

Early hours. Four. Five.

0:16:500:16:53

She fed me that much I fell asleep on her couch, didn't I?

0:16:530:16:56

Do you know this guy?

0:16:580:17:00

No. Should I?

0:17:010:17:03

His name's Jason Daniels. Ring any bells?

0:17:030:17:05

Never heard of him.

0:17:050:17:07

How about you, love?

0:17:070:17:09

Sorry.

0:17:090:17:10

There's no need to be sorry.

0:17:100:17:12

I just want to eliminate you from our enquiries.

0:17:120:17:14

Actually, would you mind coming down to the station

0:17:140:17:16

so I can take your fingerprints?

0:17:160:17:18

-Are you charging me?

-No.

0:17:180:17:19

So I'll pass.

0:17:190:17:21

Come on, let's go.

0:17:210:17:23

I will need to take a statement from you, though, love.

0:17:230:17:25

So probably best that you come down to the station.

0:17:250:17:28

On your own.

0:17:290:17:30

Oh, good.

0:17:370:17:38

Oh, back off, Mum. It's for work.

0:17:380:17:40

I'm looking for someone specific.

0:17:400:17:43

How are you meant to find someone on this, anyway?

0:17:430:17:45

Well, you gotta register. Put in your e-mail address.

0:17:450:17:47

-Uh, no way.

-Well, use mine. Budge over.

0:17:470:17:51

Right...

0:17:580:17:59

We're in.

0:18:040:18:06

What's his age?

0:18:060:18:08

-36.

-35 to 37.

0:18:080:18:11

Do you want his name?

0:18:110:18:12

People don't use their names. Only usernames.

0:18:120:18:15

-Have you never used a dating site before?

-No.

0:18:150:18:18

-Seriously?

-Seriously.

0:18:180:18:19

-Seriously?

-Seriously.

0:18:190:18:20

Distance?

0:18:220:18:23

Er...five miles.

0:18:230:18:25

Here we go

0:18:250:18:26

No.

0:18:280:18:29

There's more.

0:18:290:18:31

That's him.

0:18:310:18:33

DOOR OPENS

0:18:330:18:35

Only me.

0:18:350:18:36

All right, my lover.

0:18:380:18:40

What's all this nonsense?

0:18:420:18:44

Er, nothing.

0:18:440:18:45

Oh, you're not thinking of buying a flat from this fly-boy, are ya?

0:18:450:18:49

I mean, yeah, it's time you had your own place.

0:18:490:18:51

Bit embarrassing living at home with your mum at your age.

0:18:510:18:55

-You know Jason Daniels?

-Oh, yeah.

0:18:550:18:57

Wide-boy. It's all dirty tricks and dodgy deals with him.

0:18:570:19:00

You say that about every successful businessman.

0:19:000:19:02

No, I don't. Anyway, I've had dealings with this little runt.

0:19:020:19:06

-Oh, yeah?

-Yeah. Tried to do me out of the Black Dog.

0:19:060:19:09

Oh, yes. I remember that.

0:19:090:19:10

Yeah. Offers to buy me out for a ridiculously low price.

0:19:100:19:13

I refuse. Next thing, there's bother. Fights every night.

0:19:130:19:17

Break-ins. Place getting trashed.

0:19:170:19:20

-Couldn't prove anything, of course.

-It was terrible.

0:19:200:19:22

But you didn't sell, obviously.

0:19:220:19:24

No. I just threatened to tell his wife.

0:19:240:19:26

How would you know his wife?

0:19:260:19:28

Oh, it's not hard to find out about her.

0:19:280:19:30

Real high-flyer. Stocks and shares and all that kind of stuff.

0:19:300:19:33

Look her up.

0:19:330:19:34

Yeah, I don't think she'd like to find out how much of

0:19:340:19:37

a low-life he really is.

0:19:370:19:38

Tidy little wife she is, too.

0:19:390:19:41

Not as tidy as you, my love. Not even close.

0:19:430:19:46

Well, there's Davey's car.

0:19:490:19:50

-Yeah, and here he is.

-All right, Davey!

0:19:500:19:53

What are you doing here? What are you hoping to find?

0:19:530:19:56

Anything to give us a handle on Fred Clegg. You?

0:19:560:19:59

Speaking to the neighbours. Killing time, really.

0:19:590:20:01

-Till I can nail Steve Johnson.

-Really?

0:20:010:20:03

Who's Steve Johnson?

0:20:030:20:04

Er, Adele Lesley's ex.

0:20:040:20:06

I got a bad feeling about that guy from the word go.

0:20:060:20:09

I've seen enough domestic violence in my time.

0:20:090:20:11

You think he hits her?

0:20:110:20:12

Well, maybe not yet. But he's got it in him.

0:20:120:20:14

He did it, Jane.

0:20:140:20:15

He's got a flimsy alibi, he's got a motive.

0:20:150:20:17

He refused to co-operate with the police.

0:20:170:20:19

He's got a black car, it's got a dent in it.

0:20:190:20:21

I just gotta get forensics to put that car at the crime scene,

0:20:210:20:24

game over.

0:20:240:20:25

Whoa, hold on. Keys to Fred Clegg's flat?

0:20:260:20:29

Well, I suppose I can't stop you, but you're wasting your time.

0:20:310:20:36

It's in the bag.

0:20:360:20:37

You know, Davey's too confident.

0:20:440:20:46

We're missing something with Fred Clegg.

0:20:460:20:48

I mean, money under the bed, false ID.

0:20:480:20:51

Who are you?

0:21:150:21:16

Stay back!

0:21:190:21:21

-All right.

-Back!

-All right. All right.

0:21:210:21:22

-Let me go.

-Keep calm. Let it go. Let it go.

0:21:220:21:25

You go, I'll get Davey.

0:21:270:21:28

OK.

0:21:280:21:29

Enough! Enough!

0:21:510:21:53

Calm down!

0:21:560:21:57

It was a one-night stand, all right?

0:21:590:22:01

But I couldn't find my bracelet.

0:22:010:22:02

Didn't have his number.

0:22:020:22:04

Then I read in the paper the guy's dead, recognised the name.

0:22:040:22:07

Hit and run, it said.

0:22:070:22:08

So, I'm thinking better take matters into your own hands, Jinty, my girl.

0:22:080:22:12

Once the family swoop in, you'll never see that bracelet again.

0:22:120:22:15

So you broke in?

0:22:150:22:16

No. I told you.

0:22:160:22:17

That lock was broke when I got there.

0:22:170:22:19

Why didn't you call the police?

0:22:190:22:20

Respect for the guy's memory. Fred, that's right. Fred's memory.

0:22:200:22:26

Didn't want the fuzz digging into his sex life and that.

0:22:260:22:29

Really. Is that the best you can do?

0:22:290:22:30

It's the truth.

0:22:300:22:32

Well, you may have had a one-night stand.

0:22:320:22:33

And you may have thought the guy had a bit of money stashed away.

0:22:330:22:36

And you may have read he was dead, so you saw your opportunity and you broke in.

0:22:360:22:39

-I never. How many times?

-Well, you didn't report a break-in to the police, did you?

0:22:390:22:42

Two witnesses saw you ransacking the place.

0:22:420:22:45

And I know you've got a criminal record.

0:22:450:22:47

Joyriding. Shoplifting.

0:22:470:22:48

So, I may just charge you with burglary with intent.

0:22:480:22:51

-No way.

-Come on, Jinty. Sit down.

0:22:510:22:53

I think you can help us.

0:22:550:22:56

How?

0:22:560:22:57

Tell us about Fred Clegg.

0:22:580:23:00

Did you meet him on a dating site?

0:23:000:23:02

No way. Creeps and losers, that's all you find on there.

0:23:020:23:05

Great! My mum keeps trying to get me to join one.

0:23:050:23:07

-Your mum?

-Yeah, I know.

0:23:070:23:10

Look, Jinty, Fred Clegg was killed in suspicious circumstances,

0:23:100:23:12

so anything you can tell us, you know, that would help us.

0:23:120:23:15

Anything, anything at all.

0:23:150:23:17

He liked it rough. The rougher the better.

0:23:170:23:21

I mean rough.

0:23:210:23:22

Slapping, hitting,

0:23:240:23:25

shoving, slamming you right up the...

0:23:250:23:27

Yeah, all right. I get the idea.

0:23:270:23:29

I knew sex was important to him when I saw that tattoo.

0:23:290:23:32

What tattoo?

0:23:320:23:33

Fred Clegg? Can you describe him to me?

0:23:350:23:38

About five ten. Dark hair.

0:23:410:23:44

Blue eyes. Smooth skin. No tattoos.

0:23:440:23:47

Remind you of anyone?

0:23:470:23:49

Now, we can test Fred Clegg's sheets for your DNA

0:23:490:23:51

or we can do this the easy way.

0:23:510:23:54

All right, I'll tell you.

0:23:570:24:01

Then you can back off.

0:24:010:24:02

Go on.

0:24:020:24:04

I love my wife. I really do.

0:24:050:24:07

I adore her.

0:24:070:24:08

But, well, she's a workaholic.

0:24:100:24:12

She never switches off and when she does, she's just too tired.

0:24:120:24:15

Anyway, in my position, women throw themselves at me

0:24:170:24:20

all the time. I've fallen for it before. Gold-diggers.

0:24:200:24:25

The type that want Anna to find out so they can get their hooks in.

0:24:250:24:28

I've nearly lost her because of them.

0:24:280:24:30

So?

0:24:300:24:32

Then I hooked up with Fred.

0:24:320:24:34

Turns out we're from the same council estate.

0:24:340:24:36

Fancy that.

0:24:360:24:38

Fred was footloose and fancy-free, but no money.

0:24:380:24:40

And I had all this dosh and nothing to do with it.

0:24:400:24:42

So you swapped lives?

0:24:420:24:44

It's liberating, getting to be someone else.

0:24:450:24:48

Fred got to pull all the up-market birds and I got to have

0:24:480:24:50

some fun with no strings.

0:24:500:24:52

It was an arrangement, that's all. A bit of harmless fun.

0:24:530:24:57

I love my wife. I adore her.

0:24:590:25:02

So you said.

0:25:030:25:05

I've never heard anything like it.

0:25:070:25:08

Me neither. It's gross.

0:25:080:25:10

He claims to love his wife.

0:25:100:25:12

So why go to those lengths to cheat?

0:25:120:25:14

Marriage? The eternal mystery.

0:25:140:25:16

Who knows what makes people stick it out.

0:25:160:25:18

The hold one person has over another.

Hello. ..Yeah, go on, yeah.

Oh, really?

You're sure?

0:25:280:25:29

All right, thanks.

0:25:300:25:31

Steve Johnson's car. Tyre tread doesn't match the crime scene.

0:25:330:25:37

Doesn't mean he didn't do it, though.

0:25:370:25:38

It just means he didn't use his own car.

0:25:380:25:40

What?

0:25:420:25:43

You're fixating on him. You need to look away.

0:25:430:25:46

Check out Anna Daniels.

0:25:460:25:47

Maybe she found out about this sordid little deal with Fred Clegg.

0:25:470:25:50

Well, well.

0:26:070:26:09

That's interesting.

0:26:100:26:12

Hello, there, could you put me through to the planning department, please? ..Thank you.

0:26:230:26:28

What? You got beat up by a girl?

0:26:310:26:33

-Come on. It's not funny.

-No, it's not. She was like a wildcat.

0:26:330:26:36

-Yeah, she was totally out of control. If Jane hadn't pulled her off...

-You mean Jane saved you?

0:26:360:26:41

Stop it. Pack it in, the pair of you.

0:26:410:26:44

Have you got a second?

0:26:440:26:45

Jason Daniels' business is in serious trouble.

0:26:460:26:50

-Really?

-Yeah. You know the 40 new harbour flat conversions?

0:26:500:26:53

Well, he's pressed ahead without the right planning permission.

0:26:530:26:55

So he's got to rip out the staircases, replace the roof.

0:26:550:26:58

Pay back the deposits. And he's got a cash-flow problem.

0:26:580:27:00

And, for the record, I take no pleasure in that whatsoever.

0:27:000:27:05

What about his wife?

0:27:050:27:06

-Yeah, I did some digging on her as well.

-Ways and Means Act?

0:27:060:27:09

Something like that, yep. She is hugely successful.

0:27:090:27:12

Works 24/7 and he plays the field.

0:27:120:27:14

No wonder she'd want to get rid of him.

0:27:140:27:16

If he was my husband, I would've done him in by now.

0:27:160:27:19

Yeah, I don't think she's got the head space to plan a murder.

0:27:190:27:21

I think you're missing something. I'm going to see her tomorrow.

0:27:210:27:24

See if I can get something out of her.

0:27:240:27:26

I doubt it.

Yeah, OK, I'll tell her.

0:27:350:27:37

All right, but I want you back by ten.

Perfect Pair.

Well, hello, Leo.

Ooh, he's muscly!

No. No, no, no.

-I'm not apologising.

-"Best feature - long legs."

0:28:050:28:08

Mum, how could you?

0:28:080:28:09

I did it for you. To help you meet someone.

0:28:090:28:11

I don't want to meet someone.

0:28:110:28:13

Well, 34 men want to meet you. And look at all these winks.

0:28:130:28:16

"So, guys, I'm waiting to hear from you.

0:28:180:28:20

"But don't worry, I won't bite - unless you ask me nicely."

It's good, isn't it?

I want this wiped before Beth sees it.

It's not the point. Just get me off it!

0:28:280:28:30

Ooh, he's nice.

0:28:320:28:34

Can I leave that with you? OK, bye.

0:28:340:28:36

Bye.

Sorry, I appreciate you're busy,

-Five.

Right, the thing is,

we think the attack still might have been meant for your husband.

0:28:440:28:47

Are you sure you can't think of anyone who would want to hurt him?

0:28:470:28:50

No, I can't think of anyone.

0:28:500:28:52

Can I ask how things are between you?

0:28:540:28:56

I'm sorry?

0:28:560:28:58

You are two very busy people, with two separate,

0:28:580:29:01

high-powered businesses to run.

0:29:010:29:03

It can put a strain on a marriage.

0:29:030:29:06

What are you getting at?

0:29:070:29:08

Do you know something about my husband?

0:29:080:29:11

I'm sorry, I can't reveal the source.

0:29:110:29:13

But it has come to light that...

0:29:130:29:15

..J Daniels Developments is in serious trouble.

0:29:160:29:19

Well, yes. That much I do know.

0:29:190:29:21

You do?

0:29:210:29:23

Yes, a planning screw-up or some such. Cash-flow problems.

0:29:230:29:28

Anyway, I can lend him the money until it all comes good.

0:29:280:29:31

Is there anything else?

0:29:320:29:34

Are you happy?

0:29:350:29:36

I beg your pardon?

0:29:360:29:38

I just asked if you're happy?

0:29:380:29:40

Well, of course I am. I love my work.

0:29:400:29:42

-Hi, there.

-What do you want?

0:29:490:29:52

Is she in? Your boss?

0:29:520:29:54

No. You can leave a message.

0:29:540:29:56

I'll just wait.

0:29:560:29:57

Well, if you'll excuse me, I really need to get on.

0:29:590:30:02

Your poor face. Did I do that?

0:30:020:30:04

I'm really very busy.

0:30:040:30:05

I'd say I'm sorry, but I'm not.

0:30:070:30:09

You felt it, too, didn't you?

0:30:100:30:12

I think you should go and come back...

0:30:120:30:14

Oh, come on. Remember what it was like?

0:30:140:30:17

On the ground? Me on top of you?

0:30:170:30:20

That spark?

0:30:200:30:21

Imagine we'd kept going. What would that have been like?

0:30:210:30:25

Ow, don't...

0:30:250:30:27

Everything all right?

0:30:270:30:29

Jane, hi. There's someone, someone here to see you.

0:30:290:30:32

I'll get you a coffee.

0:30:320:30:34

How can I help?

0:30:360:30:37

That guy. The one that I thought was Fred.

0:30:370:30:39

How do I get in touch?

0:30:390:30:41

I'm afraid I can't tell you.

0:30:410:30:43

Well, can you do me a favour, then?

0:30:430:30:45

Give him this from me.

0:30:470:30:49

Gonorrhoea.

0:30:520:30:53

Tell him I'm sorry.

0:30:530:30:55

This is from Jinty Morgan.

0:31:160:31:18

You came all the way over here to give me this?

0:31:200:31:22

How thoughtful to go to all that trouble.

0:31:220:31:24

I'm investigating a man's death. Nothing is too much trouble.

0:31:240:31:27

I appreciate that, but this is my personal life.

0:31:270:31:31

If my wife finds out about it, it would finish us.

0:31:310:31:34

You're not going to tell her, are you?

0:31:340:31:36

Please, I'm begging you. She's everything to me.

0:31:380:31:41

I'm nothing without her.

0:31:410:31:42

She's out. You are?

0:32:000:32:03

Jason Daniels.

0:32:030:32:05

Ah.

0:32:050:32:06

I take it you've heard all about me?

0:32:060:32:09

What a bad boy I've been?

0:32:090:32:11

Yes, well...

0:32:110:32:13

I'm sorry. You're embarrassed.

0:32:130:32:16

But you know what, so am I.

0:32:170:32:18

Anyway, the coroner won't be back till later, so...

0:32:180:32:21

She despises me, doesn't she?

0:32:210:32:23

No.

0:32:230:32:24

Why wouldn't she? I've not exactly been co-operative.

0:32:240:32:27

That's why I'm here. To apologise.

0:32:280:32:31

How do you think she'll take it?

0:32:330:32:35

She's quite a scary lady, your boss.

0:32:350:32:38

Yeah, she can be. Sometimes.

0:32:380:32:40

You OK?

0:32:420:32:43

Guts playing up. All this stress.

0:32:460:32:48

HE COUGHS

0:32:570:32:59

Must've gone down the wrong way. Sorry.

0:33:020:33:09

Do you want me to get you something? Some water?

0:33:090:33:11

Please.

0:33:110:33:13

Look at that car!

0:33:380:33:40

Jinty? Remember me?

0:33:420:33:44

What do you want?

0:33:450:33:47

Get in.

0:33:490:33:50

-Hey.

-Hey.

-Guess what?

0:34:020:34:04

-What?

-We've found the car that ran Fred Clegg off the road.

0:34:040:34:07

-Where?

-80 miles away. Stolen vehicle.

0:34:070:34:10

And the prints match those on the Porsche.

0:34:100:34:11

Did you speak to Anna Daniels?

0:34:110:34:13

Yes, but I think you're right.

0:34:130:34:15

I don't think it was her.

0:34:150:34:16

I need to sit down. You think I'm right?

0:34:160:34:18

Yeah, she didn't know about the other woman.

0:34:200:34:22

She is spectacularly single-minded. I mean, no personal life.

0:34:220:34:26

Work-focused. Totally driven.

0:34:260:34:28

Sad, really.

0:34:280:34:29

Oh, and I paid Jason Daniels a visit.

0:34:290:34:32

Why?

0:34:320:34:33

Jinty Morgan's asked me to give him a card from the Berkeley Clinic.

0:34:330:34:37

Oh, I'd have done that for you gladly.

0:34:370:34:39

Jinty.

0:34:420:34:44

Can I help you?

0:34:440:34:45

-I just want a quick word.

-Sure, come up.

0:34:450:34:47

No, you're all right. It won't take long.

0:34:470:34:49

What I told you... About the gonorrhoea.

0:34:500:34:54

Thing is, I made it up.

0:34:550:34:56

Sorry?

0:34:560:34:58

I just wanted to get back at the guy.

0:34:580:35:00

For lying to me. You know, give him a fright.

0:35:000:35:03

But I feel a bit bad about it now so I reckon I should let him off the hook.

0:35:030:35:07

He got to you, didn't he?

0:35:070:35:08

I don't know what you mean.

0:35:080:35:10

How could he? He doesn't know where I live.

0:35:100:35:13

He doesn't even know my name.

0:35:130:35:15

He was here to see you. To apologise.

0:35:180:35:20

And you believed him? You idiot. He was here for one thing only.

0:35:200:35:23

Jinty Morgan's address.

0:35:230:35:25

It's not your fault. You've been played by an expert.

0:35:290:35:32

-Goodnight, Guv.

-Yeah, night, John.

0:35:420:35:44

See you tomorrow.

0:35:440:35:47

PHONE RINGS

0:35:520:35:53

Sorry, love, I didn't realise the time.

0:36:000:36:03

Yeah, still at my desk.

0:36:050:36:07

Not getting very far, though, so I'll probably head home soon.

0:36:080:36:11

All right. See you shortly.

0:36:120:36:14

PHONE RINGS

0:36:300:36:31

Hello, yes?

0:36:310:36:33

Really? When?

0:36:350:36:36

OK, cheers.

0:36:380:36:40

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:36:450:36:46

-Davey?

-Do you fancy going clubbing tonight?

0:36:460:36:50

-Did my mum put you up to this?

-What? No.

0:36:500:36:54

I do not need to "go out and enjoy myself." I do not need to "get a life".

0:36:540:36:57

All right, calm down.

0:36:570:36:59

-Steve Johnson's been spotted going into Jason Daniels's nightclub.

-What?

0:36:590:37:02

Yeah, I put a tail on him. Looks like it paid off.

0:37:020:37:04

I wouldn't get too excited. He could just be going clubbing.

0:37:040:37:07

Well, we've got nothing else to go on, have we? May as well check it out.

0:37:070:37:10

Or have you got something more exciting to do?

0:37:100:37:12

20 minutes?

0:37:130:37:15

20 minutes.

0:37:150:37:16

All right, just try and blend in.

0:37:320:37:34

Good night, guys.

0:37:350:37:37

Hi, there, I think we're on the guest list? Mr and Mrs Higgins?

0:37:370:37:41

Yes, they're fine.

0:37:410:37:42

-Thanks.

-Cheers, mate.

0:37:430:37:45

Like a drink?

0:37:520:37:53

Um, I'm with someone.

0:37:530:37:55

There's not enough fire exits in this place.

0:37:550:37:57

Don't leave me on my own again.

0:37:570:37:59

And those girls are underage.

0:38:020:38:04

Just ignore it.

0:38:040:38:05

Look at that.

0:38:080:38:10

If that deal goes down, I'm hauling them in.

0:38:100:38:12

Here, look, here he is, Steve Johnson.

0:38:160:38:19

He works here?!

0:38:190:38:21

Right, I'm hauling him in, anyway.

0:38:260:38:28

All right, you leave this one to me.

0:38:490:38:51

You let me do the talking.

0:38:510:38:52

No, Stevie. No, no!

0:38:520:38:55

-What did I tell you!

-No! Please!

0:38:550:38:58

-BANGING ON DOOR

-Police! Open the door! Police!

0:38:580:39:02

Adele!

0:39:060:39:08

It's all right. It's all right.

0:39:090:39:11

Ambulance, please.

0:39:120:39:13

All right! You're under arrest for assault and GBH with intent.

0:39:300:39:34

I want those results as soon as. You got that.

0:39:410:39:44

Top priority.

0:39:440:39:45

I just gave him a kicking. I didn't kill him.

0:39:470:39:49

As good as. Because he wound up dead.

0:39:490:39:51

I didn't mean to. I swear.

0:39:510:39:53

I was doing it for her. For Adele.

0:39:530:39:55

To get her back.

0:39:550:39:56

So you could use her as a punchbag?

0:39:560:39:58

She should be with me.

0:39:580:40:00

Well, right now, she's in A&E

0:40:000:40:02

getting her face stitched and her bones set.

0:40:020:40:04

I never meant to hurt her. I love her.

0:40:080:40:10

She's everything to me. I'm nothing without her.

0:40:120:40:15

I don't know what you're talking about.

0:40:210:40:23

Yes, you do. Steve Johnson.

0:40:230:40:25

He works as a bouncer in your nightclub.

0:40:250:40:28

You have any idea how many people work for me?

0:40:280:40:30

He's just been arrested for killing Fred Clegg.

0:40:300:40:33

Good for you. You got your man.

0:40:330:40:36

You can go now.

0:40:360:40:37

Any time you like.

0:40:380:40:39

You put him up to it.

0:40:390:40:40

Fred Clegg knew he was on to a good thing.

0:40:420:40:44

But he wanted more. So he threatened to tell your wife.

0:40:440:40:47

You paid him off but he wouldn't go away.

0:40:470:40:50

When you found the connection with Steve Johnson, that must have

0:40:500:40:53

been the answer to your prayers.

0:40:530:40:55

-All you had to do was work him from the back.

-Oh, please.

0:40:550:40:58

Like you did Jinty. And my assistant.

0:40:580:41:01

You dripped poison into Steve Johnson's ear.

0:41:010:41:03

Then you sat back and let him deal with Fred Clegg for you.

0:41:030:41:06

And what if I did? I've committed no crime.

0:41:080:41:11

You can't touch me, and you know it.

0:41:130:41:15

INAUDIBLE CONVERSATION

0:41:290:41:30

Davey?

0:41:440:41:46

-Oh, cheers, Judith.

-What happened?

0:41:460:41:48

Oh, that, it's just a guy resisting arrest.

0:41:480:41:51

We got him, though. Nasty bit of work. Killer.

0:41:510:41:53

Good on you.

0:41:530:41:55

On the house. Action man.

0:41:560:41:58

Cheers.

0:41:580:41:59

Oh, thanks.

0:41:590:42:01

What kept you?

0:42:020:42:04

Just a loose end.

0:42:040:42:05

WHIRRING

0:42:120:42:13

The mystery of why a window cleaner is found dead next to a sports car he doesn't own leaves Jane with questions for a property entrepreneur she suspects is hiding something.
