9:20pm – Saturday, April 28 on ABC1
Police christen the dead man, ‘Lola’ joking that he must have been an Asian suicidal transvestite. Laurie (Suranne Jones) wonders if the burka is a disguise and, if so, who was he running from.
DI Mal Craig (David Morrissey) remains cynical that there is any connection between the body and the abandoned baby found at the hospital. It might be her birthday, but Craig revels in telling Laurie that she’s wrong at every opportunity.
Danny (Matthew McNulty) and Nusrat (Shivani Ghai) are overjoyed to be approved as adopters.
Meanwhile, Nick (Derek Riddel) has taken baby Michael home to Scarborough.
The police have little evidence to go on until a young boy hands over his mobile phone footage that reveals a second person on the railway bridge. Maybe Laurie is right. She’s more surprised still when she learns that the boy is Mal’s son, Luke (Luke Hudson).
There’s a breakthrough when Bilal Choudhry (Navin Chowdry – Teachers) from drugs squad identifies Lola as one of his informants. ‘Lola’ is Farid Sardar, a young Afghan asylum seeker.
There’s a growing respect between Craig and Laurie brewing by day’s end. Laurie returns home to find that her mother is seeing fellow passenger Gerard (Bernard Hill). All a bit sudden….
At evening prayers, Nusrat is shocked to bump into a young man she knows. He is distressed and angrily refuses to talk to her before running off into the night.
