This episode starts with Karolina Novakova (Gabrielle Drake) gazing into a window of an antiques shop in Richmond, London. She then notices (from the reflection) that she is been followed by a strange man. So she rushes home to escape from him. At this home she looks after the children and works as an Au Pair girl for the Ellis family (the same kind of part she would play two years later in the 1972 film 'Au Pair Girls'),officers of Special Branch are then called in to investigate. Investigating officer Sgt. Des Davis is more preoccupied with problems from his underage daughter Lynn trying to get married to be of any real help to the investigation. Later in his office he is told that Karolina disappeared five days earlier. Because of his preoccupation over his daughter, he is very abrupt when he interviews Mrs. Ellis about the disappearance. Later at a retirement party, Davis is told by Jordan that Karolina is the daughter of Czechoslovakia's president, and this is why Special Branch has been called in. After been told this, he then visits the Ellis family in Richmond again and because of his attitude last time Mr. Ellis is very forceful to him and shuts the door in his face. After some more investigation he decides to go to the playground where the Ellis children play, while there, he asks another Au Pair girl where Karolina is?, she then tells him where to find her. The lovely Gabrielle Drake is hardly in this episode, only at the beginning and the end playing her part with a foreign accent. Another funny thing is that she's also wearing a wedding ring in all of her scenes. A pretty good episode with lots of location work in Richmond, where you can get to on the 'District' and the new 'Overground' lines of the London Underground. After Davis meets Karolina he tells Jordan where she is. She is then asked by Special Branch to leave the country, due to orders from her father. As this is more of a family themed episode, there are no car chases or punch-ups. Another thing of interest is that the title to this episode 'Sorry Is Just A Word' are the last words spoken (by Jordan) in this episode. A pretty good episode but not a great one.
