    • Donald Bevan: Saturday afternoon, acting on a tipoff, Traffic arrested Fred Donaldson for drink driving outside the Wolsey Park Golf Club. After failing a subsequent blood test, Donaldson asked that his 'good friend' ex-detective Gerry Standing be informed so that he could, quote, sort it out. This morning, Donaldson was charged with a series of rapes that took place in the Hammersmith area twelve years ago. The arresting officer was a D.I. Terry Cassidy of the serious crime group, formerly of the pedophile unit. [to Gerry Standing] Donald Bevan: You must think you're pretty cute. Gerry Standing: Not compared to you. Donald Bevan: This is not how the Metropolitan Police obtains results. Do you understand! Gerry Standing: Oh, it is a result then. He did do it! Donald Bevan: You count yourself lucky I'm no longer your governor. [Bevan leaves, slamming the door] Gerry Standing: Every single bleeding day!

    • Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman: Derek Rodger. Brian Lane: Did you tell him? Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman: He died three o'clock this afternoon. Jack Halford: Well, him and his lad will have plenty to talk about.
