In The Banker Kingdom and Ward investigate the shooting of a prominent Mayfair couturier. Lack of an obvious motive seems to be leading the pair down a dead end until a chance discovery at his salon puts the duo on the right path.
Quite a staid episode, the title refers to the fact that the victim was a money launderer for a gang of crooks. The fabulous Jacqueline Pearce makes an appearance as a model who is not all she appears to be and joy of joys the usually mild mannered and often downright creepy Milton Johns plays a supposedly tough guy villain who at one point even threatens Ward with retribution.
