In Body and Soul the father of a young girl attacked in the park takes matters into his own hands against the attacker and is then accused of assault and grevious bodily harm. The man, George Jargrave, just happens to be Sidney Bulmer’s son-in-law. David is determined to do everything he can to help naturally. Hargrave did beat the man badly but the man is claiming to be totally innocent and Main knows he needs to pile emotional pressure on the jury if he is to get the result he wants.
Margaret is also spending time at the London office, meeting the staff and helping out where needed.
Meanwhile Peter Findon has to try and extricate a pop singer from his troublesome contract with his American manager. Cue some nicely dodgy scenes inside a Soho drinking den and Findon proclaiming to prefer Mozart to rock.
In the first two seasons Bulmer was Main’s chief investigator, more sedate and by the book than his replacement Walter Clegg but a good presence nonetheless.
Despite allowing David in to pick up his dinner jacket Julia is determined to go ahead with divorce proceedings and has hired a private detective to try and catch David out in an affair with Sarah (at this stage though their relationship is purely business.)
