Suspect Andy Deacon collapses whilst Regan is interviewing him and a doctor claims that his injuries were caused by an assault. Whilst Regan never touched him, he is suspected of giving the lad a kicking. Deacon's dangerous older brother Phil puts out a hit on Regan, whilst muck-raking journalist John Frewin also tries to expose him in the local press. Regan and Carter must find the man who really hospitalized Andy Deacon before it is too late, though Regan's new lady-friend, a probation officer, is able to help. Written by

In the pre-credits scene where the two men are attacked and bundled into the robbers' blue Transit van, the shot from inside the van shows a dark Mercedes parked on the right hand side of the road just after the van goes under the railway bridge. However in the reverse shot of the two men being followed by the van, a blue Ford Zephyr is parked in front of the Mercedes. Also the weather changes: in some shots it is raining whereas in others it is not. See more
