Episode Chronology:

On Air is the 1406th episode of The Bill

Conway has been asked to take part in a radio phone-in show, and Kerry uses the opportunity to plea for information regarding a serial offender who has been stalking and attacking women in their own homes - but using a rather unusual MO. When the offender calls up the radio station and goes live on air to Conway, he confesses to a brutal sex assault and Holmes realises that there are more victims than she initially thought. As one of his previous victims goes on air to speak about her experience, the caller comes on the air again, this time at the house of a woman he has attacked and imprisoned. As Conway keeps him talking, Deakin leads the team on a search to find the attacker.

Tommy Boyd guest stars as Steve Mason in this episode.
