Having shot a suspected drug smuggler outside her flat Doyle consoles witness Ann Holly and they become lovers, intending to marry. An informer tells Doyle and Bodie that 'the Christmas Man' is flying in a consignment of illegal drugs and, unfortunately for Doyle, it seems likely the 'Christmas Man' is Ann's father, who is put under surveillance. An enraged Doyle resigns. Will his indignant behaviour put the operation at risk and is Ann only an innocent bystander? Written by
