"He's the bedrock of the department," says Between the Lines producer Peter Norris of the police Complaints Investigation Bureau's Harry Naylor. But in tonight's episode of this critically acclaimed drama Naylor's future is in jeopardy.
With his wife terminally ill, Naylor has been moonlighting for a security firm to raise funds for her treatment. Faced with a disciplinary hearing, will he go quietly? Will he fight? Will his boss Tony Clark stand by him?
This is the first of three episodes which conclude the current series and were written by the programme's creator J.C. Wilsher. Clark's infatuation with Angela Berridge continues. "In the first series he was the tough character who would kick his women out," says Norris. "Now It's the other way round."
Berridge's husband is played by Robin Ellis, best remembered for his role in Poldark.

A hundred years ago Tchaikovsky died suddenly In St Petersburg, within days of conducting the work many consider to be his greatest, the Pathetique Symphony.
How did the great composer meet his death? Officially, he died of cholera, but a Russian emigre living in America has produced evidence to show that he was forced to commit suicide.
Anthony Holden conducts an investigation into the mystery, and the film follows clues in New York, St. Petersburg and Moscow, clues within the music and the known facts of Tchaikovsky's life, in search of the facts behind the composer's untimely death.
