Storyline

Thirty-three years after the corpse of Dr. Simon Lockhart was found in his butcher's shop at Smithfield the body of Harry Eldridge is discovered - cut into pieces. The doctor used to gamble with Harry and other butchers - now all retired - and Jack discovers from the Lestade brothers, butchers who are Gerry's cousins, that Gerry and other butchers were in the financial clutches of gangster Danny Paye, now in a care home. Brian learns that the doctor performed illegal abortions - anathema to strict Catholic Eldridge - but Sandra gets the biggest shock on finding that she has an illegitimate half-brother, who was adopted by Eldridge's widow, Julia. Unfortunately his DNA is all over Harry's corpse. Written by don @ minifie-1

Det.Supt.Sandra Pullman: When was this?
D.A.C. Robert Strickland: Well, those newspapers are...
