Episode Chronology:
Family Honour is the 1570th episode of The Bill

Supt Chandler is speaking at a meeting on the Larkmead Estate, but vandalism and a petrol bomb cut short his talk. Sgt Ackland is called to the house of local MP Stephen Hadley and his wife Fiona, where their infant child has died of serious injuries. Forensic examination reveals the baby was thrown to the floor, and when questioned by DS McAllister, Fiona Hadley says that her husband was responsible. Hadley is interviewed, but denies her claim. A lack of evidence sees him let go, but he is arrested for beating his wife when he returns home. It turns out the Hadleys' other child knocked the baby's high chair over.

Michele Austin, who plays Marsha Harris, would later join the cast as P.C. Yvonne Hemmingway.
