Episode Summary

EDIT

Della manages to get Dominic Foy back into the hotel for another interview. Stephen Collins is listening to the interview next door and speaking through a concealed microphone tells Della what questions to ask. When he discovers that Sonia was pregnant and Foy adds that Collins didn't care about her he forces his way into Foy's room and physically attacks him. Foy is taken to hospital. Greer tells Cal that George Fergus convinced her to employ Sonia Baker, even though Sonia had fewer qualifications than the other applicants. Cameron now has a story, but is 'gagged' by U-Ex Oil and Westminster: he prints this fact in short headlines. As a result The Herald brings in another editor to edit 'the headlines'. Cameron has a document witnessed by Della and tells Cal that the copyright to the final story will be his.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Cal: Every other candidate for that job was more experienced and qualified than Sonia Baker!
        Foster: So? You lot got jobs when there were better against you. Sometimes it's an economic compromise.

      • Foster: (having invited everybody at the office to the pub) Only people with expense accounts allowed in the lift!

      • Cal: You're worried about Karen and Louis.
        Anne: They know me and Stephen will probably get divorced.
        Cal: Probably?
        Anne: That's what you do with kids. You keep telling them 'probably' until they get to terms with inevitabilities. It's not a lie.

    • NOTES (1)

      • The hotel scenes were filmed in a studio. John Simm has said that it was a pleasure to work with Marc Warren on these scenes. However the actual filming was a very intense time for the actors and crew involved.
