Goofs

When Bodie is trying to list the counties of East Anglia, Cowley interrupts with "Lincolnshire, Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex". No part of Lincolnshire is in East Anglia, and Essex is also not usually considered part of East Anglia. East Anglia consists of Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. See more »

A young woman in just her bikini wanders into a church and collapses.

It is a case for CI5 because the woman mutters something in German, about a diplomatic conference taking place the next day.

The woman is called Gerda, she has amnesia and the ambulance in which she is being taken to hospital comes under gunfire.

Bodie and Doyle drive Gerda around villages in Kent because there is traces of hop in her hair. They hope to jog her memory.

Bodie thinks she might be stalling and actually be part of the attack but she leads them to an abducted family.

There is a bit of everything in this episode. Doyle somersaulting out of an ambulance, a pub crawl and Doyle gets partnered with another CI5 operative played by a pre Chariots of Fire, Ben Cross. They actually make a good team as it all leads to a race against time.

I liked Bodie being more upset that his new watch broke than his arm being injured.
