When Doyle is trying in vain to chat up Dr Ross, Bodie says "...It gives one a certain masochistic pleasure..." but a few seconds later when Dr Ross plays back a secret recording that she has made of the conversation, Bodie says "...It gives me certain masochistic pleasure..." ("me" rather than "one"). When she plays the tape to Cowley, he says "one" again. See more »

Bodie is behaving very erratically. Psychological assessments regard Bodie as a risk to himself and CI5.

Cowley speaks to various people as to what can be wrong with him. It seems many of Bodie's ex-colleagues met early deaths.

Doyle is concerned about him as well. Bodie looks like a man who wants vengeance and taunts a motorcycle gang to a fight.

A change of formula in this episode with a brooding Bodie, almost like a man possessed. The motorcycle gang were a bit wet though but Cowley also shows some steel and a loaded gun to Bodie.
