Police are called to the local hospital when a doctor punches a man who’s accused him of having an affair with his wife.
At Sun Hill station, the victim Trevor Berwick (Anton Saunders), is determined to press charges against the doctor, as DC Mickey Webb (Chris Simmons) tries to deal with Berwick’s highly agitated state.
DC Webb asks Sgt. Callum Stone (Sam Callis) to drive Berwick home, but Stone can’t resist the temptation to express his point of view, and tells Berwick to pull himself together and behave like a man.
When Berwick and his baby son are reported missing just a few hours later, DC Webb reveals his earlier concern for Berwick’s state of mind and a full scale search is mounted.
Meanwhile, investigations reveal that Berwick had lost his job some months beforehand, a fact that leaves his wife Penny (Amelia Curtis) reeling. But she admits that their marriage had been on shaky ground for some time, and that she had met the doctor – an old friend – earlier for coffee.
Out on patrol, Sgt. Stone spots Berwick’s car and follows him into an industrial estate. Berwick stops the car, but before Stone can react, accelerates into a group of stationary vehicles. As his car overturns and catches alight, Stone is left devastated in its wake.
