Dour Scots sergeant Davy Freeth arrives from Glasgow in pursuit of three villains who, he claims, have come to kidnap somebody, but he will say no more, even when one of them is found dead. Regan is patronising towards him, calling him Jock, but when a kidnap attempt on a little girl is bungled and the girl escapes, Freeth annoys Regan by admitting he has known all along who the real intended victim is - the daughter of a Scots heavy, Boyd, living in London, and Freeth has tipped him off about the surviving pair. Between them, Boyd and Freeth do Regan's job for him whilst he is in bed with the fair Susan. Written by
