Cold Turkey: Lifeline is the 318th episode of The Bill

P.C.s Stamp and Quinnan attend to a sudden death. The deceased was a locum G.P., and Insp. Monroe thinks the death was suspicious. W.P.C. Ackland takes a mother to a pharmacist's. A customer becomes abusive when his prescription is not filled. Stamp and Quinnan are called to a disturbance at a flat, where a drug addict is holding a child, and possibly an injured woman, hostage. D.S. Greig thinks the hostage-taker may have killed once already. P.C. Hollis talks to a G.P. about a break-in at her surgery and the theft of prescription pads. Ch. Insp. Conway arrives at the flat to negotiate with the hostage taker.
