Episode Summary

EDIT
The team reinvestigates the 1950s murder of a young wages clerk at Battersea Power Station.

Richard Dunne was hanged for Frederick Tully's murder, but his granddaughter, Hannah, is waging a campaign to have Dunne posthumously pardoned.

The discovery of a suitcase containing used fivers in the attic of the Tully home sheds new light on the case, revealing a possible blackmail plot.

A trace on the used fivers reveals that they should have been destroyed in the Battersea Power Station furnaces back in the 1950s, but were actually being saved by Douglas Murray, a friend of Tully's.

It also becomes clear that the Battersea furnaces were being used to destroy other sensitive documents as well as used bank notes.

When the team discovers a classified document relating to a massacre of civilians carried out by the British Army in Kenya, they uncover a blackmail plot spanning more than 50 years.moreless

    • At the end of the episode, as Hannah is on BBC News declining to comment on where she got a document, but praising the source, Brian, Gerry, & Jack are sitting on the couch. Brian is covering his eyes, Gerry is covering his ears, and Jack is covering his mouth.


      Just like the 3 Wise Monkeys statue - "See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no Evil."
