Episode Chronology:
Episode 011 is the 1668th episode of The Bill.

PC Jim Carver is angry at suggestions the blaze was an inside job. He goes to his MIT interview thinking there's nothing to declare, but when they ask precisely what he was 'discussing' with Sgt June Ackland just prior to the blast, he falters. If only he'd listened to PC Reg Hollis's warnings about guilty 'micro expressions'. The death of his colleagues has affected PC Stamp deeply so when he discovers a young lad has been nicking flowers from the Sun Hill wreaths he concentrates on tracking him down. In doing so, he directly disobeys June's orders to head straight to a mugging victim who's been waiting on the street for an officer. With the memorial service the following day Supt Tom Chandler's thoughts are on how the spectacle will reflect on his station. He orders Des to carry the Met flag but Des's priority is certainly not on becoming the station hero to focus on. It's his first day back on the job and he's not ready to be high profile. Chandler reminds him what position he was in prior to the explosion. While June and Jim have to cover their stories with MIT, it's Chandler that comes under the microscope as he's informed his officers haven't shown a great deal of co-operation through their enquiry. DCI Meadows questions Chandler's policing tactics and spots him and DS Debbie McAllister in close conversation in the yard. [Source:]
