Jeff has fallen from a balcony in the line of duty and is in hospital with a broken leg. He is thus a captive audience when Marty comes to visit and regales him with the details of a big case he handled whilst he was alive and Jeff was in Scotland. He was asked by MI5 head Sir Basil Duggan to steal documents from a safe but discovered that 'Sir Basil' was actually a traitor called Brenan, whom he managed to apprehend before he could leave the country. After Marty has gone Jeannie comes in and offers to tell Jeff the same story. Written by
