Mulder is approached by a former love interest, Scotland Yard Inspector Phoebe Green, who needs help on a case. To date, three British politicians have spontaneously combusted, burning to a crisp. There has been no trace of accelerant being used and little to connect the three deaths. Green is in the U.S. providing security to Sir Michael Marsden and his family and wants to make sure nothing happens to him while he is visiting. Mulder tells Scully that he wants to take care of this himself - somewhat to her annoyance - but she eventually finds crucial evidence that leads the to the killer. Written by

Phoebe Green (Amanda Pays) states that a "... minister of parliament..." was killed. There are no people with such a tittle as parliament has no ministers. Individuals elected to parliament are "members of parliament", usually abbreviates as "MPs". Members of parliament and other individuals who form the government/cabinet and have a department portfolio are called "ministers" (i.e. the prime minister, education minister, justice minister, finance minister, etc.). They are appropriately called "government ministers". See more
