And BURR stares. DROMGOOLE is holding up the certificates.

BURR:

Yes.

The Night Manager ep 6 final.

DROMGOOLE:

These are genuine MOD export

certificates. For Bulgaria and

Italy.

BURR:

That’s not true.

DROMGOOLE:

I have signed letters from both

Italian and Bulgarian governments

confirming the sale.

He hands her the letters. BURR stares.

PERMANENT SECRETARY

I spoke to Rex Mayhew during his

handover, before he joined the

Royal Commission. He said you

persuaded someone to leak

intelligence from the River House.

Someone you referred to as the

Boatman?

HARRY PALFREY’s face is frozen.

BURR:

I’ve never heard of such a person.

DROMGOOLE:

Then how did you get your hands on

the certificates? They’re

classified material.

BURR stares at him.

BURR:

An angel gave them to me. With a

halo.

Beat.

PERMANENT SECRETARY

You do understand the seriousness

of this enquiry Ms Burr?

BURR is silent. PALFREY’s face is one of racked tension.

Later:
BURR pale, exhausted. The interrogation has been

relentless and she is 8 months pregnant and feeling it.

PERMANENT SECRETARY (CONT’D)

Let’s move on to the arms swoop

itself.

PERMANENT SECRETARY (CONT’D)

Based on what we now know to be

flawed intelligence, you authorised

through an American enforcement

connection, and behind the FCO’s

back, a full US military raid on

twenty aid trucks crossing the

Turkish-Syrian border.

BURR:

Rex Mayhew authorised it. Not me.

PERMANENT SECRETARY

On his last day. And on your cast-

iron guarantee that the

intelligence was solid. Where did

you get this intelligence?

BURR:

It came from a source close to

Tradepass and to Richard Roper.

PERMANENT SECRETARY

Can you be more specific?

Beat. This is it. This is why they are here. It’s as if

everyone is leaning forward.
