Thank you.

I'm afraid Daddy's not in, Steve.

We know. Any idea where he is?

I'm afraid not. He's awfully vague.

He may ring up shortly. Of course,

he might have gone into Oxford.

Without a word to anyone?

Yes. If he missed his train

he'd not phone, because of Mummy.

- Oh?

- She's an invalid.

Get through to Oxford, Carter.

You sound very serious.

Has something happened?

What is it, Ann?

Steve and Mr Folland

are worried about Daddy.

Worried? Why?

Your husband's very important.

We have to take great care of him.

What was he wearing?

His dark grey suit.

And his old raincoat.

Any hat?

A grey felt.

Did he take anything?

Maybe. He has a case for his night

things, which he takes to the lab.

He often slept at the labs.

Send that description out.

Right, sir.

You know what work he does.

Does he discuss it with you?

It would be a one-sided discussion.

I see. Thank you.

Sorry to have disturbed you.

Just a minute. I think you've heard

something about my husband.

You needn't be afraid to tell us.

I can see that. If he contacts you,

please let me know at once.

You'll find me there.

Thank you.


Steve, what's all this about?

It looks like a security job.

Maybe your father took some papers.

Dont they trust him?

We're so damned scared,

we can't trust anybody. Don't worry.

Let me know if you hear anything.

Shes a nice girl.

I've always thought so.

You'll have to come to London.


That's where I think he is.

Where's your billet?

In the village.

Collect your things.

Drop me at the laboratories,

then take Mr Lane to his digs.

Don't you think it might be better

if you put me in the picture?

All right. Willingdon has stolen

a UR12 bomb from Wallingford.


He's told the Prime

Minister that unless it's
