With evidence suggesting that his cosh was the murder weapon and a trumped-up assault claim from Sainsbury things look bleak for Gerry but DAC Strickland is sure of his innocence and lets him go. With dangerous men in pursuit Gerry goes on the run with Danny, to whom he relates that Ackroyd was as corrupt as any of the other suspects and was in Chapman's pay. They call on Tommy Naylor, who directs them towards honest Ted Case, another retired officer and he gives them evidence of Ackroyd's involvement with Chapman. This in turn leads Gerry back to Bryant and McCabe and arrests are made, followed by recrimination, chicanery, a funeral and a departure.

When Gerry identifies the woman in the picture as Caitlin's mum, he incorrectly states it was Alison. Alison was (according to old series) Gerry's second wife and mum to Amelia, Caitlin's mum was in fact Jane, his third wife. This was all according to the previous series. See more
Today we say good-bye to our friend, whose life was tragically cut short... His family and friends may well feel cheated that he has been taken from us too soon. But we have many happy memories of him, and these we must hold dear in our hearts.He was loved, respected, and will be missed by us all.
