Against The Odds is the 198th episode of The Bill

D.C. Dashwood walks through an old subway when he is approached by a snout with information about a potential gang war on the plot. D.I. Burnside is off with a bad back and Greig is acting D.I. again. He takes W.P.C. Martella off early shifts. Greig is not happy about the snout and makes Dashwood write everything down. Ch. Insp. Conway, in the custody suite checking on prisoner detention times, is pleased that Burnside is off, but concerned about the prospect of a gang war.
