Hedging Your Bets is the 1084th episode of The Bill
When a bookie is robbed, the man behind the attack is found to be his grandson, who has a gambling habit and is the wrong person to leave in charge of the business. During an interview he drops hints about Beech's gambling habits and overdue account. Outside, Deakin warns Beech that if he has a debt he'll be out of the force. At the end of the investigation Beech offers Deakin a drink, but Deakin, quite pointedly, declines.
