Young Davey Holmes is arrested after an elderly money-lender whom he has visited is attacked and robbed, and May, his mother, asks her old friend Jack Regan to intervene. Although it is proved that he got a legitimate loan and is innocent of robbery, his troubles are far from over as he is being black-mailed and has fallen foul of some very dangerous people. He really needs Regan's help. Written by

Did You Know?
In the scene where Davey runs from his house to the wasteground, chased by DS Cree and DC Feast, a distinctive red American car that has been converted into a towing truck is seen briefly. This car featured in another episode The Sweeney: In from the Cold
(1976): it was used to rip the doors off a prison van so as to secure Billy Medhurst's release. See more
In the scene where Regan and Carter are following Don Edwards to the derelict flat where Davey Holmes is hiding, they pass a row of parked cars, with a shop called Chelsea Typewriters in the background. In the shots of Don's bike and the Sweeney's white Ford Cortina, the parked cars are a white Datsun, a red Fiat, a motorbike covered in a blue tarpaulin and a grey Jaguar. In the shot from inside the Cortina, a white Riley is now parked between the Datsun and the Fiat where there was previously an empty space. See more

Mr Jessop sends his apologies. He's not feeling very well. Something to do with his legs. He tried to sell me some information... dirt, pure dirt.

We've not begun our little chat and already you're wanting to leave. Now that's not polite!
