- Series 1 (5)
Will and Natalie find out that Lucy had a previous conviction for blackmail and also that she was making phone calls to Jameel Khan, a journalist investigating the Kestrel company's possible exploitation of its African locations. To the horror of his kindly sergeant, Taylor, Wenborn bullies a terrified Alan into revealing who provided him with the gun with which he shot his tormenter as this was also the supplier of the gun that shot Spaull. The trail leads to Mickey Bankes, Alan's mother's boyfriend, who sold it to one John Slater, a dock worker but Slater admits that he was only a go-between and does not know the true identity of his client. An angry Wenborn slaps his wife after she has – rightly – accused him of infidelity but Jane is shocked to find that Alan has killed himself, thanks to Wenborn's threats.
