Roger Pollard was a member of a London criminal gang run by Michael Shand. When Pollard is found on a beach shot through the head, DI Lynley and DS Havers assume Shand is responsible. They are surprised however to learn that Pollard had grown up locally, making him an easy target for anyone trying to learn his whereabouts. Havers is in her element as she used to go to a holiday camp in the area as a child. She becomes convinced that the death of a young boy from the holiday camp, Martin McRae, some twenty years before is the key to solving the crime. Written by
Did You Know?
After Lynley & Havers finish unpacking at the caravan park, they go out for a drink at an establishment that is playing Buddy Holly's "Peggy Sue". All of the young pattrons are up and dancing '50s style. Barbara says to Tommy, "Did you ever dance like that back in the day". Tommy replies, "That'll be the day". A clever script insert referring also to Buddy Holly. See more
