  • A recent sexual assault on Helen Vestry in her cake shop is identical to two unsolved rapes which occurred ten years earlier at the Pyramid Chocolate factory,run by unpopular Duncan Miller. All the victims were blonde and the attacker smelt strongly of sweat. The team's investigations also uncover a trilogy of seemingly unrelated disasters which befell the factory at the time - the suicide of a female worker,who was not raped,the discovery of a severed finger in a chocolate bar and the prosecution of contract cleaner Alex Close for using illegal immigrants in his work force. As the connection between the three events emerges it seems likely that a murder also took place in the factory,though the rapist is still very much alive.

  • Det. Supt. Sandra Pullman and the team re-open the investigation of two rapes that occurred in 1999 after the Commissioner specifically asks that UCOS have a look at them. DNA evidence into the rape of Helen Vestry a year ago provided a link to the earlier attacks. All three women were attacked in total darkness by a man wearing gloves, who never spoke but smelled strongly of sweat. The investigation reveals that at the time of the 1999 rapes there were several odd incidents at the chocolate factory where both women worked including industrial sabotage and the suicide of a female employee. UCOS not only solve the rapes but also solve a murder nobody knew had happened. Meanwhile, Gerry Standing decides to give up smoking and asks Brenda to be his 'fag' (as in cigarette) buddy and keep him on the straight and narrow.
