After a pep talk from new broom superintendent Mackintosh who is anxious to stamp out police corruption, Hunt and his team are called to a Soho strip club where P.C. Irvine is found dead and, to quote Hunt, "looking like Hilda Ogden" in a photograph with stripper and wannabe actress Sally. Soon after Sally is shot dead. Irvine's widow Ruth is initially evasive, chiefly because she has been having an affair with Mackintosh, but she does give the team a diary, exonerating him from extortion but putting his young colleague Kevin Hales in the frame as the officer on the make, out to silence his worthier partner. The case resolved, Chris tries to atone to Shazz for his sexist comments by performing a full strip in public.

Did You Know?
Chris does a strip to 'You Sexy Thing' and Alex references The Full Monty. However, the movie was not released until 1997 and this episode is set in 1982. See more
My name is Alex Drake. I've been shot and that bullet's taken me back in time. Now I'm lost in 1982, and all I can do is fight, and search, and stay alive. Because, somehow, I will find a way back home.
