Episode Quotes
Des: Could you explain it like I’m some sort of viewer, gov?

Des: Burton Bradstock. Jailed ’96 for killing his wife. Released three weeks ago for not doing it since.

Anne: Found a list. A list of jurors. A list of jurors from the Bradstock trial.
Jack: Oh, it’s written in some kind of... a code.
Anne: Upside-down writing, we learned it in the academy. Here. (turns paper around)

Jack: Bradstock’s still out there, just walking around like a man. We’re going to have to find him somehow.
Anne: Public appeal?
Jack: Not to me.

Bill Ball: It was high-profile. A young woman was killed in cold blood. At the time, Cold Blood was a quiet little village. Everyone was up in Arms. Arms was the town where they were based. We need a result, fast. Burton Bradstock was the fall guy.
Jack: Lee Majors was the Fall Guy.

Bill Ball: Don’t judge me, Jack. It was 1996, for god’s sake. Babylon Zoo were Number One for five weeks. People needed hope.

Tom: Have a relative identify Bradstock’s body, and don’t breathe in for a moment. I’ve just been eating Scotch eggs.

Natasha: I took the amusing precaution of dissecting the cat. And it swallowed this: a police-issue whistle. Don’t look so shocked. It’s not the first time I’ve stood in this room clutching a dripping pussy. Is it, Jack?

Anne: Blame the rain if you have to.
Jack: Why the rain?
Anne: Because it’s cold and senseless, Jack, like these murders. Because it lashes us mercilessly like the damned job. Because in Spain it falls mainly on the plain.

Tom: I lured her to that eerie stock-footage and prop-filled warehouse. I lured her there on the night of the officer’s ball. And I shot her. I shot her with a gun. A gun full of bullets. Bullets that kill. And I killed her.
