Storyline

Sandra does not believe recently released paedophile John Davies when he owns to killing 5-year old Yasser Gorton-Blackledge,who disappeared after going on a Free Palestine march with his left wing parents Anne and Fred in 1985. Now divorced, Anne still campaigns for liberal issues but Fred is a hard right reactionary and misogynist. Davies eventually admits to Sandra that he was bullied into confession by Anthony Vernon,a violent disciple of Fred who once hoped to make his name in journalism from Yasser's case. Another ex-activist,kindly nurse Gillian Withall,adopted a little boy at much the same time that Yasser disappeared and,as Gerry and Brian read through the files MI5 compiled on the Gorton-Blackledges it becomes more than likely to them that Yasser is still alive.

Quotes

[first lines]
Jack Halford: You bring me to the nicest places.
Det. Supt. Sandra Pullman: If this case is as open-and-shut as Strickland thinks it is, hopefully we won't be here too long.
Jack Halford: So this bloke Davis wants to make a confession twenty-five years after the event. Have we spoken to his mental health officer?
Det. Supt. Sandra Pullman: He does have a link to the missing boy; he was a friend of the family.
Jack Halford: So what? His conscience got the better of him?
Det. Supt. Sandra Pullman: Maybe he found religion when he was inside.
Jack Halford: Yeah. There's gotta be another reason for all this.

Feminism, kidnapping, political demonstrations & more
16 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

There is a lot going on in this episode.

At a Free Palestine Demonstration 5-year old Yasser Gorton-Blackledge disappears from the demonstration and neither parent knows he is gone one thinks the other has him.

Yasser's disappearance breaks up the marriage. The boys father is a professor named Fred Blackledge and teaches about female domination and how the feminist blame everything on men including global warming saying as if they don't drive a car or take a plane. He calls them feminazis. It comes out later that Yasser's mother was having affairs with the students that stayed at her house when her husband was in another country and he found out about it and he knew that Yasser is not his son.

It talks about demonstrators against Israel, MI6, MI5, infiltrators and more. No one seems to know what happened to Yasser even with all the cameras.

Professor Blackledge puts info in a his book about "Ernst Gräfenberg was a German-born physician and scientist. He is known for developing the intrauterine device, and for his studies of the role of the woman's urethra in orgasm. The G-Spot is named after him an erogenous zone." He is bitter about why his wife lost sexual desire for him.

The video reminds me that as parents they were more concerned with the political beliefs than the life of their son.
