Crime Management is the 1144th episode of The Bill
D.I. Deakin has a word with D.S. Boulton about his team's informants. Boulton has done fairly well, but D.C. Lines hasn't recruited a snout for months. Under pressure, Lines tries to recruit Karen Walsh, the wife of the victim of a recent attack which he'd investigated, but she refuses to inform on her husband or his associates. Lines puts pressure on the Walshes' landlord, Pat Beresford, whom he believes was responsible for the attack, and he is delighted when Beresford contacts him offering information.
