(Heavy sigh. Beat.)

Would you be “at liberty” to

describe the person you claim was

tampering with the Witness’s drip?

STEVE:

Average height and build. IC1.

HARGREAVES:

Distinguishing features?

STEVE:

He was wearing a wig and mask.

HARGREAVES:

(Another heavy sigh. To

Rogerson.)

Jolly?

Rogerson spreads a series of blown-up CCTV vid-caps on the

table in front of Steve. They show a man in a motorcycle

helmet entering a back stairwell, then exiting about 15

minutes later.

ROGERSON:

These vid-caps were taken from a

CCTV camera located on Stairwell G,

a set of service stairs, shortly

before and shortly after the

Witness’s death.

HARGREAVES:

How’d he get in the Witness’s room?

STEVE:

There was meant to be a pair of

your uniforms on the door. You tell

me.

HARGREAVES:

(Reflecting back at

Steve.)

Love to help but not at liberty to

say.

STEVE:

(Beats.)

With respect, sir, if this is how

it’s going to be, can I go now?

HARGREAVES:

You were there because you got a

tip-off.

STEVE:

If you speak to Superintendent

Hastings -

HARGREAVES:

Where’d the tip-off come from?

Who’s got that kind of inside

information?

STEVE:

Apologies, sir, I can’t -

HARGREAVES:

Your partner fell five floors. The

pathologist had to spoon half her

brain back inside her skull.

HARGREAVES (CONT'D)

Don’t you want to help us get the

bastard that did it?

Steve maintains a resistant silence.

HARGREAVES:

There were two of you. One of him.

Anger flickers in Steve’s eyes.

Rogerson looks away, embarrassed by Hargreaves’

insensitivity.

Hargreaves and Steve exchange glares.
