8:30pm – Saturday, September 4 on ABC1
Sgt .Callum Stone (Sam Callis) and PC Kirsty Knight (Sarah Manners) are called to the home of elderly widow Jill Peters (Claire Bloom), after a neighbour reported what he thought was a domestic disturbance.
When they arrive, Mrs. Peters is extremely anxious but eventually opens the door, claiming to have been the victim of a burglary.
Upon further inspection, PC Knight believes that there is more to the case than just a burglary, especially when she notices the bed has been stripped and the washing machine is in operation. But Mrs. Peters is reluctant to say any more.
However, with gentle encouragement, Kirsty gets the woman to admit that she was raped. But after agreeing to an examination, the woman changes her mind.
Agreeing to come back the next day to speak to CID, Mrs Peters declines to be examined and when her son arrives, she asks him to take her home.
As the police scour the neighbourhood for any information that might help, Sgt. Stone suggests that PC Knight talk to Mrs Peters again. This time she remembers a man she exchanged harsh words with in the street some days before when he was dumping rubbish.
However, her description matches someone who’d come forward as a witness to seeing a man fleeing the scene, and who, when questioned, admits to burglary but nothing else.
Is Mrs Peters telling the truth.
Meanwhile, Sgt. Stone gets yet another message that his mother has called about his father.
So why is he not returning her calls?
