CUT TO:

401 INT. PRISON. VPU. LINDSAY’S CELL. ONE WEEK LATER. DAY.

Lindsay wakes up on her bunk. It’s another day of

confinement, another day with nothing to get up for. She

moves listlessly.

CUT TO:

LINE OF DUTY #2.4 Blue Revisions 19/07/13 6.

401A INT. STEVE’S FLAT. EARLY MORNING.

In close-up, Steve works on his laptop. On screen he’s typing

out:

FLAWS IN CASE AGAINST LINDSAY DENTON

LACK OF MOTIVE, OPPORTUNITY AND MEANS

FRAMED?

BY DCC DRYDEN?

Steve looks very intense and thoughtful.

CUT TO:

402 INT. STEVE’S FLAT. MOMENTS LATER.

In contrast, with the radio playing an upbeat tune, Steve

moves about his kitchen energetically, gulping fruit juice

straight from the bottle as he flicks on the kettle and drops

bread into the toaster.

CUT TO:

403 INT. PRISON. VPU. LINDSAY’S CELL. MOMENTS LATER.

Lindsay’s hands are visible. With the passage of time, she

appears to wear much lighter dressings on her hands, though

they remain painful. She wears dexterity aids, a spoon that

attaches to her wrist, enabling her to eat her breakfast.

CUT TO:

404 INT. STEVE’S FLAT. MOMENTS LATER.

The toast pops up and Steve starts buttering.

He hears someone approach and turns. Rogerson has entered,

hair messed up, wearing one of his shirts, legs and feet

bare.

ROGERSON:

Morning.

STEVE:

Morning.
