Episode Chronology:

Quinnan, Part 3 is the 1654th episode of The Bill

Playing chefs, lorry drivers and hoteliers is all in a day's work for the Sun Hill team when they go undercover to expose an illegal immigrants ring. PCs Polly Page and Dave Quinnan are posing as a married couple running a hotel: they are hoping to trap Berisha who imports illegal immigrants. PCs Jim Carver and Reg Hollis are chef and waiter respectively whilst immigration agent Petrit helps out in the kitchen. DC Mickey Webb and DS Debbie McAllister have set up surveillance in a nearby flat. Meanwhile PC Tony Stamp is undercover as a driver for the firm bringing in the illegals. The hotel is busy preparing for its opening night. When the temporary staff arrive Quinnan seizes the opportunity to attract Berisha's attention by ringing his agency and complaining about them. Berisha arrives and takes a shine to the couple, promising to sort out better staff. Later Stamp makes a delivery to the hotel – four refugees who are immediately set to work. Stamp then picks up his boss Kerns and drives him to a lorry park where Kerns opens the back of one of the lorries. A horrified Stamp tries to keep his cool when faced with twenty scared refugees and a woman's body. Forced to help with the disposal of the body, Stamp learns that Berisha gave the order to dump the body in the river. Back at the hotel the operation looks doomed when Berisha takes a dislike to Petrit and declares that he is withdrawing his staff. Luckily Page manages to sweet talk him into changing his mind but her flirting provokes jealousy in Quinnan. [Source:]
