New Tricks s10e10 Episode Script

Wild Justice

The case we discussed last night, Sir? It's being handed back to the Directorate of Professional Standards tomorrow morning.
Until then? Technically, it's still ours.
I'd like to take a run at it.
Why the change of heart? The thought of Monroe walking free.
There's a lot at stake here, Sasha.
I'm aware of the potential for embarrassment, Sir.
This is more than just embarrassment.
A lot of the top brass hitched their wagon to DCI Hennessy's star.
If it turns out that he fitted Monroe up, the political fallout could be catastrophic.
Is that why UCOS were chosen ahead of the DPS? UCOS were chosen because they can be discreet.
And me? Because you'll leave no stone left unturned.
But no-one is suggesting that we cover anything up here, Sasha, they're only interested in the truth.
And if they don't like that truth? Upstairs are convinced that Hennessy got the right man, they just want to make sure that he got him in the right way.
You've got 24 hours.
Eddie Monroe, one of the Met's top targets for over two decades.
Until the MIT finally put the bastard away.
That bad? The epitome of a nasty piece of work.
Drugs, prostitution, extortion, you name it, he controlled it.
Serious and Organised could never pin anything on him though, he laundered it all through a hotel chain he built up in the '80s.
However, five years ago, Monroe was convicted of murdering this man, Alistair Caldwell CBE, during an argument at a Mayfair hotel owned by Monroe.
The Senior Investigating Officer on the case was Headline Hennessy.
May he rest in peace.
You knew him? Everyone did.
He was a poster boy for the Met, he got his face in the papers more often than Princess Di.
Well, he's going to be making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The suspect in the Mayfair jewellery heist is lodging an appeal, claims that Hennessy suppressed evidence that could have exonerated him.
Hennessy bent? No-one's suggesting that he took bribes, more that he took an 'ends justifies the means' attitude to the job.
So the Yard's worried that, if Hennessy did suppress evidence, every con he ever put away will lodge an appeal.
Which is why they've ordered a re-investigation into Hennessy's most high-profile arrests.
The highest profile being Edward Monroe.
Oh, I'll say.
Press will have a field day if he walks.
Wait a minute.
Why's this case been given to UCOS? It isn't unsolved or cold.
Yeah.
Orders from upstairs.
What Steve's saying is, of all of Hennessy's cases, why have we been given Monroe's? What don't we know? 15 years ago, I was part of a major investigation into Monroe.
Josh Tyler was my partner in CID, he was undercover in Monroe's gang.
One night he sent me a message saying he thought his cover had been blown, next morning he was found floating in the Thames.
Murdered? We all knew Monroe was behind it, we just could never prove it.
So if we can't establish that Hennessy's case against Monroe was kosher, the The case gets turned back to the DPS tomorrow morning and I want us to be the ones to solve it.
So if you've got plans for the next 24 hours, cancel them.
Hi, Dad.
Is that? Yeah.
Look, mate, why don't you meet us at the hotel.
OK.
I'll explain to you on the way.
Stewie, what are you doing here? I thought you'd be pleased to see me.
I am, I am, it's just Thanks a lot.
Thank you.
Here you go.
Chocolate for you.
Thanks.
So how'd you find me? Rung up your old station, followed the trail from there.
Oh, right.
You'd make a good detective.
How's things at school? I'm at college.
Oh, you've left school? I'm at sixth form college.
Oh, I see.
I see, right.
Still playing rugby? How'd you know I play rugby? Well, it's just the shirt's a bit of a give-away.
Why didn't you get back in touch after you left? That's that's It's complicated, you know, it's Do you need to be somewhere? Me? Me? No, I'm fine.
Absolutely fine.
Maybe we can meet up later? After work? Mum thinks I'm at a mate's, I could wait at your place.
Well, look, Stewie, this isn't a best day for me, really, I don't even know really You haven't changed, have you? Work always comes first.
OK.
OK.
Wait Here's my spare key and I'll write my address for you.
Armadale Lofts.
It's on Armadale Street.
Not too far.
Will you find that all right? Yeah, yeah.
OK.
Good.
Look I tell you what Best if I scoot now and then, I should be back by 6.
00.
OK? Yeah.
OK, OK.
Well it's good to see you, son.
Thank you.
How many hotels did you say Monroe owned? I didn't.
But it's 83, since you're asking.
83? Yeah, that looks like my statement.
And there's nothing missing from what you originally told DCI Hennessy? Nothing I can think of.
Heads up! Hiya.
Hi.
Can you show me where the body was found? Yeah, sure.
That was a turn up for the books, isn't it? That's one way of putting it.
Why? What's up? Didn't ask for his pocket money to be backdated, did he? It's this way.
Who was working that night? Everyone, Summer Ceilidh is one of our biggest nights of the year.
Alistair Caldwell was out celebrating with his wife, Cynthia.
Also there that evening was his boss, Dr Uri Hallerman.
Daniella Yates, CEO of The Virchow Foundation.
And her date for the evening, Matthew Taylor.
According to Hennessey's investigation, Caldwell is said to have gone out for a cigar.
It was also stated in Hennessey's investigation that Monroe was returning from the kitchens, saw Caldwell in the corridor and the pair got into an altercation.
What about? Monroe's only child Emma died of leukaemia 20 years ago, his wife couldn't cope and a year later she took her own life.
Heavy.
What's all that got to do with Caldwell? Well, he was Emma's oncologist and Monroe always blames him for not doing more to save her.
It was the first time Monroe had seen Caldwell since his daughter's death and report says that something inside him just snapped.
He argued that, if fate hadn't conspired to bring the two of them together that night, Caldwell may still have been alive today.
This is where Mr Caldwell was found.
When did Monroe move into the penthouse suite? Shortly after I joined the hotel's graduate scheme.
So about seven years ago.
And he had access to all areas of the hotel, including the service lifts, yeah? Well, he owns the hotel, so yeah.
Thank you, Grace.
I'll let you know if there's anything else we need.
So Hennessy never came up with any actual witnesses? None brave enough to come forward anyway.
So how did he pin Monroe to the crime scene? Monroe's blood was on the body.
Difficult one to explain away.
Monroe's defence argued that it was from an altercation he'd had with Caldwell earlier that same evening but no-one could be produced to back up the claim.
It seems like to me that Hennessy didn't need to fit Monroe up.
That's what I thought until I read the case file.
Hennessy was so hell bent on pinning the murder on Monroe, he ignored the possibility it could be anyone else.
So we've been brought in to ask the questions that Hennessy didn't.
Yeah, but it doesn't mean that Hennessy deliberately suppressed evidence, does it?! Hanlon's razor Eh? Hanlon's razor.
Never attribute to malice that which is easily explained by stupidity.
Or ambition.
Miller.
Right, OK.
That was the prison, Monroe wants to see me.
Is that wise? Could be pertinent to the investigation.
Or it could be Monroe trying to play you.
This is all about Josh Tyler, isn't it? Different murder, same suspect.
See, I'd heard you turned down the Hennessy investigation.
Tell me the name of your source, I'll be happy to put them straight.
The Yard must think they're so clever putting you on this case.
My job is to get the truth.
Course it is.
The thought of revenge never crossed your mind, has it? Revenge, justice, call it what you like.
As long as I spend the rest of my days in prison, eh? Do you know why I've stayed on top for so long? Look around you, you really think you're still on top? Greed and fear.
Other people's, not mine.
People either want something they don't have or they are afraid of losing something that they've already got.
But me, I can't be leveraged.
You see Emma's death was the worst thing to ever happen to me, but it kind of set me free.
Because I knew I could never be hurt like that again.
I'm not afraid of death .
.
I don't care for anyone and I don't want anything and that, Detective Chief Inspector, makes me a very dangerous opponent.
If you're trying to scare me off, it's not working.
I was sorry to hear about your domestic problems.
Divorce can be such a messy business.
Must get lonely banging around that big old house on your own, now all the others have left.
I enjoy the silence.
I'll have to come round and visit you, one of these evenings when I'm out.
Yeah.
Any day but Tuesdays, I've got yoga.
And how are the kids taking it all? Alex and Madeline, isn't it? One way or another, I will bury you.
Gary! Show DCI Miller out.
So, you remarried? You don't approve? No, Josh wouldn't have wanted you to be alone.
How's Ned? I've absolutely no idea.
I'm sorry.
No, don't be, it was for the best.
So why the unexpected visit? It's been what, five years? We're re-examining the investigation into Alistair Caldwell's death.
Could Monroe get out? If he appeals and wins, yes.
Is that likely? Not if I've got anything to do with it.
You know, the thought of that man ever getting released The fact he is in prison, it feels as if Josh's has had some sort of justice.
We will get Monroe for Josh's murder one day, I promise.
You know, Josh always told me he thought you were the best cop he'd ever known.
I always envied your relationship.
Well, we were never I know.
It was your friendship I was jealous of.
The way you could spend all day together and still find things to talk about on the phone when you got home.
Josh loved you very much.
But I think he liked you a lot more.
Aliens! What? Well, you didn't tell Stewie you were abducted by aliens and the reason you haven't been in touch is because you've only just got released.
And what would aliens want with me? I don't know.
Maybe they're studying the long-term side effects of eating deep-fried haggis.
You discovered a conspiracy between the mafia and Hibernian Football Club and the only way to keep Stewart and his mum safe was for you to leave! Don't be so stupid.
Gentlemen, Daniella Yates, CEO.
Steve McAndrew and my colleague Gerry Standing.
I know.
Shall we go to my office? Yeah.
You told DCI Hennessy you were part of Alistair Caldwell's party the night he was killed.
The foundation works closely with Mr Hallerman.
We've become friends over the years.
So what exactly goes on here? We're a brokerage, we collate details of people who want to donate bone marrow.
And then when a hospital needs a donor, we search our records and hopefully find a match.
Does money change hands? The donations are purely altruistic.
The donor doesn't even get to know the patient's name.
Fancy offices for a charity.
Our surroundings reflect our success.
Our financial donations have increased by 1,000% in recent years.
Any of these donations from Edward Monroe? You already know the answer to that question or you wouldn't have asked.
Since his daughter's death, Mr Monroe has been a great friend of the foundation, despite his current predicament, he's still by far our largest benefactor.
And it doesn't bother you where he got the money from in the first place? If it was your child Mr Monroe's money saved, would you care how he'd earned it? After you gave your statement, were you ever questioned again? No, I told the police everything I knew at the time.
The last I saw of Alistair was when he went out to smoke one of his awful cigars.
Your date that night, Matthew Taylor.
Do you keep in touch with him? No.
We rang him this morning, guess what he told us? He said that five years ago, he was working as a male escort.
So I hired him, I didn't want to turn up alone.
Something you forgot to mention in your original statement.
I didn't see the relevance.
You asked Mr Taylor to tell the police he was a personal trainer.
I was embarrassed, I didn't want everyone to know I couldn't get a date.
Mr Taylor said you'd asked him to flirt with you in front of the other guests.
Why? This is ridiculous, you can't Who were you trying to make jealous? I Can't be Dr Hallerman, he was a bit too old, wasn't he? You wouldn't hire a male escort to make Cynthia Caldwell jealous, would you? All right, it was Alistair! Why? You're the detectives, you figure it out.
You'd been having an affair and he'd ended it recently.
I thought the sight of a handsome younger man flirting with me might make Alistair realise his mistake.
Did it? No, he couldn't have cared less.
Boss.
Something odd here.
A hotel waiter came forward a week after the murder to say that he'd seen Caldwell having what he described as an "animated discussion" with Dr Hallerman earlier in the evening.
Did Hennessy follow it up? If he did, I can't find the paperwork.
Hennessy had already charged Monroe by then, he probably thought it wasn't important.
So you want us to ignore it? No.
Speak to Hallerman.
Daniella Yates and Alistair Caldwell were having an affair.
Caldwell dumped her the week before his death.
And she actually hired Matthew Taylor to try and make him jealous.
Something else Hennessy conveniently missed.
Do you think Daniella Yates could have killed Caldwell? Well, he was bludgeoned to death, it was spontaneous, passionate There's nothing more passionate than a jilted lover, trust me.
Except for maybe an angry wife.
But, but Maybe Yates' behaviour tipped Cynthia Caldwell off about the affair, you know? There's only one way to find out.
Guv'nor? I'm DCI Miller, we spoke earlier.
Oh, yes, come in.
Thank you.
Please come on through.
It's a dump, I know.
But the rent's cheap and everything from the desk to the computer came out of Alistair's old office so, keeps the overheads down.
What exactly is it that you do here? We offer fertility support for cancer sufferers.
I started the charity after Alistair's death.
Do you have children of your own? I have to be somewhere, Chief Inspector, so if you could get to the point of your visit.
We're re-examining DCI Hennessy's investigation into your husband's death.
Found it.
Information has come to light suggesting your husband had been having an affair with Daniella Yates.
You don't seem surprised.
There are worse things a husband can do.
So you knew but you didn't mind? Alistair was a great man, he saved thousands of lives.
You'll be surprised what a woman will put up with to be close to a man like him.
But you failed to tell the original investigation about your husband's affair.
I tolerated my husband's extracurricular activities, I didn't say that I was proud of it.
Come on.
Come on.
You calling NHS Direct? No, Stewie's not picking up his phone.
Shit! How long have you been working here, Dr Hallerman? My entire career.
My parents founded the hospital in the '30s.
I've devoted my whole life to the place.
Are you still practising? Mine's more of an advisory role these days.
But I still like to walk the wards twice a day, follow our patients' progress.
Tell me, did you help treat Edward Monroe's daughter, Emma? No.
No, she was Alistair's patient.
Yes, poor Emma.
The truth is, there was nothing Alistair could do.
She was very sick by the time she came to us and we couldn't find a matching marrow donor in time.
Mr Monroe could never accept that, but then, what parent could? You told DCI Hennessy you and Alistair Caldwell were close.
We worked together for 25 years.
But one of the hotel staff claims he saw you both having an argument earlier that evening.
Alistair and I may have had a few cross words, but it wasn't an argument.
I explained everything to Mr Hennessy.
When? A week or so after the murder.
What, so, you told DCI Hennessy about the argument? Yes.
What were you arguing about? It's silly looking back on it now.
Is it? Alistair received a CBE for his work and yet here was I, his boss, part of the family who founded the hospital Without an honour.
Alistair had friends, senior civil servants, they'd pulled strings, got him his CBE, so I asked if they could do the same for me.
And he refused? He said it "wasn't the way it worked.
" All my years of service and not even a lousy OBE.
They give them away to lollipop ladies.
I won't be a minute.
You're right, you'll be longer.
Stewie! Stewie! Dad.
Christ! Thought you weren't back until tonight? Sorry, I was worried.
You didn't pick up your phone.
Sorry, I had your headphones on.
Oh, right, OK.
Sick vinyl collection, by the way.
What? Oh, thanks I think.
Made myself something to eat, you don't mind, do you? Course not, no.
Course not.
Good.
Nice flat you got.
Thanks.
You live alone? Yeah.
No girlfriend? No.
Yeah, yeah.
So, um Your mum not worried about where you've been all day? No.
She's fine.
Oh, well.
OK.
Shit! Oh, sorry.
Sorry, sorry, I've just go to somebody's waiting for me.
I've got to go, OK.
But I will see you later tonight, I won't be too late.
You enjoy your what you've got there.
See you later.
OK.
And Hallerman told Hennessy about the argument? That's what he claimed.
So why isn't there anything in the file? If I was feeling charitable, I'd say Hennessy filed it incorrectly.
And if you weren't? He deliberately suppressed it.
The more people with motive to kill Caldwell, the greater the doubt that Monroe did it.
Hennessy knew that and so does the boss, that's why she's so stressed.
Must be tough for her, though.
I mean, you know what it's like when we lose one of our own.
Listen to this.
According to the accounts department, Daniella Yates makes 200,000 a year.
200 grand! Yeah.
Cor blimey, no wonder they say charity begins at home.
Her last job she was MD of a Famine Relief Charity and before that, she was an HR director in the City.
Sounds like she doesn't care who she works for, as long as it pays.
Guv'nor, Danny's come up with an interesting idea.
UCOS, yeah? I've asked a contact in Whitehall to do a bit of digging around.
Into what? Why should Caldwell get a CBE and Hallerman get nothing? You're wondering what the Honours Committee know that we don't? Maybe Caldwell knew it too? It is a motive for murder.
OK, but I still need proof that Hennessy arrested the right man.
Guv? Daniella Yates is up in reception.
She's claiming that she saw Edward Monroe kill Alistair Caldwell.
Proof enough for you? Why didn't you come forward with this information before? I was afraid for my personal safety.
What, of the Virchow Foundation's biggest benefactor, surely not? I'm under no illusion as to the type of man Mr Monroe is.
It's not because you thought he'd withdraw his support? I saw no reason why the foundation's funds should suffer because I happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
But Monroe could have got off.
You had the blood evidence, I knew that was enough.
So why now? It's the right thing to do.
Right or in your own self-interest? It's convenient that you should come forward on the exact same day that your affair with Alistair Caldwell was made public, don't you think? What are you suggesting? I'm suggesting that you're lying about what you saw to deflect the blame.
Is that what you really believe? I saw Edward Monroe murder Alistair Caldwell and I'm prepared to swear to that under oath.
It is possible that she's telling the truth.
Highly unlikely, but it is possible.
It could be a revenge thing.
Maybe she loved Caldwell and this is her way of getting back at Monroe? Do you know what I don't understand? The off-side rule? Yeah, yeah.
I get that Hennessy overlooked stuff but if you look at the court transcripts, Monroe's defence team don't do a whole lot better.
How'd you mean? Well, take the argument with Hallerman and Caldwell.
They had exactly the same witness statement from a waiter that we had, they didn't even bring it up in court? Thanks, Tony, I owe you one.
Hallerman claims he was arguing with Caldwell that night because he refused to help him get an honour.
Yes? Well, my source tells me that Hallerman was offered a knighthood ten years ago and turned it down.
Ah.
And that's not all, turns out Hennessy was poking around asking the same questions five years ago.
You lied to us, Dr Hallerman.
And yet you were so ready to believe me.
An embittered old Jew lamenting his lack of recognition, such an easy story to swallow.
You don't want recognition? I want to save lives, everything else is irrelevant.
What were you and Alistair Caldwell arguing about? Nothing that's relevant to his death.
Well, that all depends on whether or not you killed him.
Me? You can't think? I could never kill anyone, I'm a doctor! So was Crippen.
I'm a good man, you have to believe me.
What I believe is that you will go to any lengths to protect this hospital, even if that meant killing Alistair Caldwell.
No.
Uri Hallerman, I'm arresting you for conspiring to pervert No! Well then, tell us the truth.
What were you arguing about? 15 years ago, the family of a young Lebanese patient made an .
.
unsavoury allegation against Alistair.
How young? 12, 13.
Alistair admitted the allegation was true, a one-off incident, he said.
But still, you reported him? Alistair was one of the best oncologists in the country.
So you made the allegations go away.
He saved lives, more than any other surgeon I'd ever seen.
By turning a blind eye, there are maybe a hundred people alive today who would otherwise have died.
But it wasn't a one-off incident, was it? In the months leading to Alistair's death, there'd been new allegations.
And you chose that night to confront him about them.
Did he deny them? He claimed it was a small price for the girls to pay for him saving their lives.
He said that if I went to the police, it would destroy the reputation of the hospital.
He knew I could never allow that to happen.
So you silenced him.
I didn't have to, Monroe got to him before I could.
You believe him? I wish I did.
Hallerman in the frame is the last thing we need.
You think Hennessy knew? He knew that Hallerman lied about the argument.
Monroe's brief will just claim that this is proof that he suppressed evidence.
Look, I know you're not getting the answers you want, but you're doing the right thing.
Oh, Chief Inspector! This is a warrant entitling us to enter this property and remove any items we feel may be pertinent to our investigation.
Investigation? This is Detective Inspector Fielding and this is the Child Abuse Investigation Team.
My husband achieved great things.
He saved those children's lives.
He took their innocence and you knew about it.
In you go.
This is all excellent work, you've done well.
Too well, in truth.
It's clear that this investigation is going to take far longer than we've been given time for.
But, Sir No, I'm sorry, but I suggest you box everything up for the DPS to take over tomorrow morning and just head home.
Sir could I have a word? Is there any chance of giving us some more time? I'll say this for her, she doesn't give up without a fight.
If it was your partner Monroe had murdered, would you? That's the last of them, boss.
Thanks.
Look, are you sure you don't want us to stay, we're more than happy to.
No, you go home.
I'm just finishing up.
Pub? Get me one in, I'll be there in a minute.
From DI Fielding, list of patients retrieved from Caldwell's computers.
I've got the same list from Hallerman here somewhere.
You know, if Monroe does appeal, he still may not win.
No thanks to me.
You've done everything you can.
Josh wouldn't have accepted that as an excuse.
He always saw a job through to the end.
Just being in the same room as him made me a better copper, you know.
Josh Tyler was good.
He didn't deserve to die like he did.
Odd about Monroe though, isn't it? With the charitable donations, the bone marrow recruitment drives.
For all the evil we know he's done, there's still a shred of humanity in there.
Somewhere.
Good night.
Night.
Did your mum say why she kicked me out? She said you threw a radio at her.
Did she say why? No.
Suffice to say, I wasn't in a very good place at the time.
And I thought you and your mum would be better off without me around.
You know, I wanted to get back in touch, that's why I moved down here, you know, really.
I But I didn't know what I was going to say if I did and then The longer I left it, the harder it became.
And Does that make sense? Mmm.
Get that if you want.
It's fine.
Is everything all right? Mmm-hmm.
Is something going on with you and your mum? I've left home.
Since when? This morning.
I'm not getting on with Mum.
Anything you want to talk about? Mmm-mmm.
But I thought, you have a spare room, maybe I could just stay here.
Oh, no.
No, I that that is not a good idea, son.
No, I mean, no, I'd love that.
But you'd have to talk to your mum first.
You talk to her.
Go on.
No, no, that is not a good idea.
Neither was this.
What? No, hey, come on.
Stewie, come on.
It's fine, Dad, I get it, I get it.
I better go.
Let me at least give you a lift.
It's fine.
I'll get the bus.
If Mum sees you drop me off, she'll go mental.
Well, look, well, stay in touch, OK.
And I'll see you soon.
Thanks for the takeaway.
OK.
Bye now.
Shit! You'd better have a good reason for calling me in, Chief Inspector.
I had tickets to the theatre.
Is it true a recipient's blood is an exact match with their donor's? Well, it's the bone marrow that produces the blood, so yes.
I need to see your files.
They're confidential.
I called in a favour.
You won't find anything.
That's exactly what I'm banking on.
If Edward Monroe asked me to destroy his donor files, I'm sure that I would keep a hard copy back for insurance purposes.
I'll tear this place apart if I have to.
You told him the identity of his bone marrow recipient.
He threatened to withdraw funding.
And after Caldwell's death, he ordered you to destroy his file.
Monroe's money has saved hundreds of lives.
Who destroyed the NHS records, Hallerman? You know Monroe, he doesn't take no for an answer.
And your witness statement? I didn't kill Alistair.
Are you going to arrest me? Eventually.
No-one wins if the truth comes out, Chief Inspector, including you.
Why didn't you tell me you had childhood leukaemia? II didn't think it was important.
The treatment, was it painful? I've blocked it out.
People think that he's a bad man, but he's not.
I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Edward.
He saved my life.
When did you discover he was your bone marrow donor? After his arrest, I went to see him in prison.
He knew the blood on the body was yours? He promised that He wasn't going to let anything happen to me.
I was to keep quiet.
He was going to take the blame.
Did he say why? He was my guardian angel.
He'd been secretly looking out for me for years.
The graduate scheme? Tell me about the night of the murder.
It It was the first time that I'd seen him since I was a child.
It was the smell, cigar smoke and disinfectant.
Everything he did to me just came flooding back.
But he didn't even know who I was.
I was just another victim.
I can't explain what took over me.
I wanted to punish him for what he'd done to me.
For what he'd done to dozens like me.
Is she there? Put her on.
So the question is, what are we going to do now? I guess I arrest Grace Kennedy.
You guess? I can't believe you took the blame for Caldwell's murder.
You had Grace's records destroyed just to prevent the blood evidence being traced back to her.
And you knew that pleading guilty would look suspicious, so you had your brief do a half-arsed job so you'd be found guilty.
There was never any chance you were going to lodge an appeal, was there? You wanted everyone to keep believing that you'd killed Caldwell, including me.
It's why you had Daniella Yates give a false witness statement.
Best of luck proving that.
GRACE: 'I can't explain what took over me.
'I wanted to punish him for what he'd done to me.
'For what he'd done to dozens like me.
' After Emma's death, I was .
.
I don't know, felt lost.
But then I learnt my bone marrow was used to save Gracie, that my blood was running through her veins.
It was like getting my daughter back.
Did she tell you what that bastard did to her? I wish I had killed him.
I couldn't let her go to prison, she wouldn't have lasted a week.
If it was your kids, you'd have done the same thing.
We both know there's enough blood on these hands, to serve a dozen life sentences.
I kind of belong in here.
But not for Grace Kennedy's crime.
Grace is no danger.
I am.
You'd like me to stay in here.
So let me do Gracie's time.
Or what? You'll hurt my kids? Unless you can bring Josh Tyler back from the dead, there's nothing you can offer me that I want.
Really? What about the next best thing? A full confession that I killed Josh Tyler.
IF you bury the evidence against Grace.
I don't need to be escorted out of the building.
What am I being arrested? What are you staring at? What are you staring at?! Don't you dare film He's filming it! No, I know it's not the outcome you wanted, Sir, but the important thing is that we got to the truth.
No, I have no idea how the press got wind of the arrests.
But the genie's out of the bottle now, Sir.
Yes, leave it with me, I'll see what can be done.
Good Goodbye, Sir.
Come in.
You wanted to see me, Sir.
Oh, yes, I'm glad you're here, Sasha.
I've just been speaking to the Deputy Commissioner on the phone, this morning's arrests were a major PR embarrassment for the Yard.
Sir Close the door on your way out.
Sir Can I ask you a question? I spoke to a contact in the DPS, they've known about Hennessy for six months.
Yes.
So why did the Yard wait so long to order a re-investigation into the Monroe case? What? You think they were waiting until they knew you would be leading the investigation? You've been reading too many conspiracy novels, Sasha.
She's a good reporter, isn't she? Who? Emily Ward, the journalist who broke the news of the arrests.
I think you and I are going to get along very well.
Whenever you're ready Guv'nor.
