Episode Summary

EDIT
Night Games
AIRED:
Sun Hill is eagerly preparing for the final of the "Ask A Policeman" quiz, but when Sgt Ackland lets them down at the last minute, Insp Monroe replaces her with the unpopular DC Spears. Meanwhile, Liz Rawton, now an Acting DI with the OCG, arrives at the station. She is heading up an operation which is trying to catch a dangerous rapist, most of whose victims have been prostitutes. She plans to be based at Sun Hill. The quiz is in full flow with Tony Blackburn at the helm but Sun Hill is losing until Spears saves the day and they win a weekend away. Only Monroe congratulates her. The next day Spears asks to be part of Rawton's team but her request is denied and she is forced to join the others at a grand hotel where they are greeted by hotel reps Tommy and Fay. Later, both PCs Rickman and Clarke take a shine to local DS Pete Cork but he only has eyes for a certain DC. By bribing Tommy, Cork ensures that his blind date for the salsa evening is Spears.moreless
