Episode Summary

Trojan Horse
P.C. Ken Melvin and P.C. Reg Hollis stop a young man for erratic driving, and a PNC check reveals the expensive car is stolen. Stamp and Quinnan arrive to transport the prisoner to Barton Street, and Melvin and Hollis volunteer to drive the car back to Sun Hill. As Melvin moves some of the building materials from the station renovations so he can park, the car explodes in a huge fireball. Hollis, Conway and Melvin are rushed to hospital - but Ken Melvin soon dies from his injuries. SO13 arrive at Barton Street to interview the car thief, who it turns out stole the car from an army major who was a likely terrorist target. Sgt. Cryer is outraged that the disaster could have been prevented as SO13 had the major under surveillance and could have stopped the car being stolen.moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When the DAC arrives at Sun Hill, he parks his car and turns the headlights off. Later, when Sgt Cryer goes outside and sees PC Tony Stamp and PC Dave Quinnan, the headlights of the DAC's car are on again, despite the fact that he was with Chief Supt. Brownlow the whole time and couldn't have gone back and turned them on.

      • The Sun Hill building that appears in this episode alternates between the Kensington site and the Merton building. It is obvious before and after the explosion. In the immediate aftermath, you can see that the yard now looks the the Merton one, because the Merton yard is much larger than the Kensington one.
