Episode Summary

EDIT
Setts, Lies and Videotape
AIRED:
McCabe and Cassidy are on the trail of two local hooligans, Chris and Jacke Mason, who appear to be running a protection racket. McCabe, torn as ever between his wildlife job and his mainstream detective work,has to dash to a large building site to save a badger sett from the bulldozer. In a tense confrontation, he instructs a property developer Dennis Cooke, that the law stops him building anywhere near the badgers. Dermot Shand, the foreman,is furious that his schedule has been put behind for the "vermin". Dennis Cooke is a friend of Claire Armitage,the boss's wife. Dennis and Claire are watching birds flying gracefully up above: an ideal time to ask for Claire's help in getting the building ban lifted. But she can't: badgers are not her thing. Local badger watchers, led by the fearsome Mary Donnachie decide to keep watch on the site and McCabe helps them with the use of an invisible emulsion which will help identify anyone with harmful intentions. When McCabe drives by the site at night he is nearly killed by a rampaging bulldozer. The two hooded drivers jump out and run. The badgers are missing and Mary has been locked in a toolshed. Armitage, once again is at loggerheads with McCabe as he believes McCabe is ignoring the protection racket in favour of the badger problem. McCabe redeems himself when he and Cassidy discover that a large-scale badger-baiting contest has been organised with badgers procured from the development. With Cassidy going in undercover they attempt to catch the baiters in the act, just before the badgers are put out to fight: complete with their hands covered in the ultraviolet emulsion.moreless
