Episode Summary

Deep End
New W.P.C. Rosie Fox is partnered with P.C. Eddie Santini to investigate when the body of a junkie is washed up on the banks of the Thames. Santini and Fox argue over their cases, and it seems their working relationship will not be a smooth one. Santini reckons graduate Fox will not be able to handle the pressure when she goes undercover as a prostitute in a CID operation, then nearly ruins the operation when he finds himself attracted to her. Celebrating a successful arrest, the two share a drunken snog back at the station, but moments later Santini forces himself on Fox in the locker room, leaving her confused and frightened.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • This episode, and the next seven through to Big Day, at least, appear to have been written and produced for the half-hour format. Most of these episodes are set over two days, with the shift change occurring half-way through, and half of them have two writers.

      • Hywel Simons (who would later go on to play the regular character of Sgt. Craig Gilmore) appears as an unnamed River P.C. in this episode. It is not the same character, however, as Sun Hill was Gilmore's first posting in the Met.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (2)

      • First appearance of W.P.C. Rosie Fox (Caroline Catz). She is billed as a show star in the end credits for each episode in which she appears, but is not treated as such on the programme's website.

      • This was a feature-length episode that marked the new-look The Bill with a return to the one-hour format and an updated theme tune and credits. This episode began a long-running storyline that would culminate two years later in The Trial of Eddie Santini.
