In Drag Act a group of crooks are hijacking lorries. With a driver dead and a policeman injured Regan is under heavy pressure to get a result.
There is something of a subplot, completely with highly dodgy romantic music, of George becoming involved with probationary cop, Julie Kingdom, In fact Julie takes quite a chunk of the storyline and instrumental in the solving of the case. George thinks her name should go in the report so that she is given some of the credit. Regan thinks she is not in it for the long game and George should keep her name out of it.
Patrick Malahide pops up in a brief role as a detective, he would of course go on to a long running role in Waterman’s next series Minder.
