Storyline

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 don @ minifie-1

Trivia

The location used for Doyle's flat was also used as Shirley Glass's flat in The Sweeney: Pay Off (1976): the stained glass in the front door and the green spiral staircase from the living room to the bedroom are recognisable in both episodes. See more »
