Episode Summary

Overnight Stay
Half the relief, including CID, are at a hotel guarding a sequestered jury in a gangland murder trial. There are several attempts to spook the jury over the course of the night. D.S. Roach and W.P.C. Martella clash when she catches him chatting up a female juror and he accuses her of falling asleep on the job. P.C. Carver and D.C. Dashwood end up in the swimming pool after chasing a woman who was acting suspiciously in the car park through the hotel. She is arrested but refuses to speak, and a major from the Bomb Squad is called in when her bag is found, but it contains a severed hand. Distraught at the death of her father, W.P.C. Ackland gets drunk in the hotel bar. She is found by Sgts. Cryer and Penny, and put in the sauna to sober up. When she recovers, Ackland spots a suspicious man checking into the hotel. D.I. Galloway leads a raid on the man's room, and breaks up an I.R.A. cell conducting an arms deal. Back at Sun Hill, Insp. Kite deals with a serial nuisance confessing to bigamy, and P.C. Shaw brings in a man with a blow-up doll.moreless
