Following a call from a frantic Tom Walker reporting his father George Walker’s disappearance, Sam and Phil are horrified to discover the 75-year-old’s body in his basement freezer. They interview Walker and realise it could be murder when he mentions that his father’s carriage clock and some of his late mother’s jewellery has gone missing. Sam and Phil leave to question George’s cleaner, Maria Clyne, who admits that George was very kind to her and gave her the clock and jewellery as gifts. Zain is also assigned to the case and searches George’s house for clues. When an intrigued Zain discovers some Viagra-like pills and a will – leaving his worldly goods to his cleaner - things take an unexpected turn. It’s a case of whodunit when Tom owns up to arguing with his father about his past love affairs and Maria confesses to doing more than just dusting the furniture!

Later, Holly tells a guilty Lewis that he can stay the night and he reluctantly gives in when she asks him if he is scared of her father. They share a passionate kiss and end up back in bed together.
