Episode Chronology:
On the Hook, Part One is the 1547th episode of The Bill.

The new CID team arrives at Sun Hill, along with the new station commander, Superintendent Tom Chandler, who makes himself known to the team by serving breakfast in the canteen.

DCI Meadows is facing a disciplinary board hearing, but is assigned to head the investigation of an apparently racially-motivated harassment of a local family, and the main suspect turns out to be Helen Freeley, a woman Meadows had an affair with several years previously. As the Sun Hill officers get to know the new faces at the local pub, Helen Freeley's son Darren is found murdered.
