After attending Linklater's funeral Reid and Drake investigate the murder of a young woman and the abduction of her new-born baby from the London hospital. The fact that the woman has a tail leads them to a circus freak show where another exhibit, John Goode, proves to be the child's father but he panics and flees. Goode spent time in a mental asylum treated by Dr Crabbe, who explains that Goode had a deformity and points them towards Goode's doctor father, a man obsessed with perfection and anxious to stamp out any abnormalities. Also instrumental in helping solve the case is Joseph Merrick, the 'Elephant Man' but he is done away with before he can help Reid solve Linklater's murder and identify Blush Pang's accomplice.
