DI Alec Hardy:
[Hardy interrupts] No. He's the best choice.

DS Ellie Miller:

DI Alec Hardy:

DI Alec Hardy:

DS Ellie Miller:

DI Alec Hardy:
[Hardy mumbles] Yeah.

DS Ellie Miller:
Thank you, bloody hell! [Hardy walks away and Millers attention returns to her computer as she insults him under her breath] Knob!
