Storyline

Following a warehouse robbery, Pete Offord's DNA is linked to that of an anonymous tramp who was murdered on a London Underground train 15 years earlier. Pete's snobbish aunt Janice, who cast his mother Iris out long ago, directs the team to Iris's 'unsuitable' lover in Essex, David Allenforth, a depressive who went missing just before the murder. David's brother Charles had hired a disreputable private eye McHugh to trace him but he drew a blank. No Ticket Tony, however, a terminally ill former associate of David's, did locate him and holds the key to the mystery, which is finally tied up by Jack's 'Columbo' act. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[first lines]
Det. Supt. Sandra Pullman: Last week, Peter Offord, a forty-three-year-old plumber, was arrested on suspicion of a warehouse robbery in Wembley, but his DNA didn't match any found at the scene. However, it did show a link to a man found strangled on a tube train *here* in March ninety-six. Dead man's identity has never been established.
Jack Halford: Until now?
Det. Supt. Sandra Pullman: Turns out Peter Offord was that murder victim's son.
Gerry Standing: Yeah? How'd he react to that?
Det. Supt. Sandra Pullman: Never knew his dad, apparently; he was brought up alone by his mum.
Gerry Standing: Hmh.
