I left a note for the handyman.
You OK to let him in first thing?
Yeah, of course.
Where are you staying?
Toby's been before, so... Nice.
I'm sorry about everything.
And this whole situation, I...
..I don't like the way things are.
These things happen.
Marriages break down.
We just have to try and move on in a positive fashion.
Is that what we need to do?
I have to go.
Boys, come and say goodbye!
Don't give Daddy a hard time, OK?
We'll talk when I get back.
CAR ENGINE STARTS Be good for your gran, all right?
I want you in bed when she tells you.OK.
Come on, give me a hug.
Come on, give me a hug!
Give me a hug, all right?!
I love you.
You know that, don't you?
Both of you.
You're the most important thing in the world to me, all right?
I forgot my spelling book.
I left it at the house.
Don't worry about that.
I've got a test on Monday.
Mrs Lambert hates me.
Well, never mind Mrs Lambert.
I'll find it, I promise, all right?
On you go.
TOBY:You told me.
You told me all about Bram.
No, I didn't.
Fi, you did.
We were in bed, we'd had a bit to drink and you told me everything.
All about his infidelities and how hurt you were.
Why did you turn up at the house?
Why did you come round?
Well, you said you'd text when you got back.
When you didn't, I thought... That you'd check up on me?
I was worried.
Do you know Bram?
Before that night at the house?
Is that why he attacked you?
He attacked me because he's a maniac.
He's not right in the head.
You can see that.
He's on antidepressants.
He's not well.
He's under pressure.
My point exactly.
Someone's putting him under pressure, forcing him to do this.
Was that you?
Are you involved?
Would you believe me if I said, "No"?
I'm not going anywhere until I've seen my passport.
My fake passport.
MAN:You enter the bank account.
You want funds transferred to here.
WENDY: He 's very forgetful, my husband.
Without me, he'd be lost.
My wife's the same.
I'd forget my head if it wasn't screwed on.
THEY CHUCKLE You sign here.
PHONE BUZZES Well, go on.

CAR DOOR CLOSES PHONE BUZZES It's done.

A bit of cash to tide you over.

Nice doing business with you.
There's a spa menu there.
Pick what you want.
Oh, shit... What?
Sophie from work.
I forgot to e-mail a document over.
Can't you do it now?
Well, it's on my laptop.
It's for the presentation this afternoon.
Can't someone else do it?
I'm the only one who has a copy.
I have to go back.
Well, I have to.
It's an important presentation.
I've been working on it for months.
But we're having such a good time.
What difference is half an hour going to make?
PHONE BUZZES Hiya.
I've tried calling him again an d again, but he's not picking up.
Where the fuck is he?
He's not answering.
When did you last see him?
A couple of hours ago.
I dropped him off.
He hasn't left.
Are you sure?
You've been watching?
The money hasn't arrived.
Did you give the solicitor the right account?
Well, I didn't give it personally.
You checked the number?
I gave it to Bram.
Did you see what number he entered?
Are you fucking me around?
You and him, have you made a deal?
No, I swear.
Where's his passport?
In the car.
Where is he?
Oh, my God... Has he tried to contact you?
Is there another account?
Is the money there?
CENTRAL LOCKING CLICKS SHUT Listen, I'm going to make this very simple.
You're either in it with him or you're not.
But either way, I want that money.

ENTRY SYSTEM BUZZES DOOR OPENS What are you doing here?
I don't have anywhere else to live.
Or have you forgotten?
I'm meeting your husband.
He just texted me.
He told me he was already here.
He's on his way.
Why is he texting you?
I don't know.
Maybe he still has feelings for me.
Is that so hard to believe?
HE SCOFFS No.
Though you are a little high maintenance.
Look, I can just go.
You're not going anywhere.
Sharing a bottle of wine.
Just like our first date.
Where's he coming from?
He's on his way.
You're very trusting.
Considering what he's done.
SHE SCOFFS I don't forgive you.
You obviously forced him into this.
That'd make you feel better, would it?
I know him.
He wouldn't do this... to me, the boys, unless you forced him.
How did you do that?
We had a little road rage incident.
He fled the scene.
He didn't have a licence.
He was on a ban.
One of the passengers, a kid, died.
That little girl.
Yeah, it's tragic, really.
Of course he knew.
He didn't care.
He didn't give a damn.
HE POURS MORE WINE You blackmailed him.
PHONE BUZZES I had a little help.
Who is she?
Just a girl.
Are they together?
HE SCOFFS No.
Was any of it real?
The way we met?
None of it?
Did it feel real?
Then it was.
You bowled me over, is that what you want to hear?
You never felt a thing.
Just used me.
A small price to pay.
How could you do that?
We were close.
I told you things about my marriage, my family.
And then this morning in the hotel in the bed, I...
I feel like I've been raped.
How long did he say he'd be?
Show me the message.
Show me the message he sent you.
I wiped it.
HE SCOFFS What are you doing?
Can't we just talk?
Don't you owe me that much?
PHONE RINGS Ah-ah-ah!
RINGING CONTINUES Is this for me?
What did you think I was going to do?
He's not even coming, is he?
Fuck... What did you think, I was going to mend my ways?
Make it right, make you feel better, make you feel a little less used?
I trusted you.
Yeah, well, now you know, you can't trust anyone.
HE GROANS You've torn my whole life apart.
Yeah, I did.
And now I know you inside and out.
I've seen who you really are.
And, to be honest, it's not that interesting.
So, why don't you stop fucking about and tell me what you want?
HE GROANS What have you done?
What have you done to me?
Oh, my stomach!
You fucking mad bitch!
Please... Help me.
Look into my eyes.
See how sad I am.

Merle, it's Fi.
Are you OK?
Something bad's happened.
Oh, my God.
Did he have a fit?
He's not who he said he was.
His name's not Toby, it's Mike.
What are you talking about?
He's the one.
He's behind all of this, the house.
He was blackmailing Bram.
It doesn't matter.
The thing is, he... ..the whole time.
I slept with him!
I've been sleeping with him for months in that bed!
What did you do to him?
I gave him your sleeping tablets.
The whole pack.
And Bram's antidepressants.
I crushed them up and put them in the wine.
Because he was threatening the boys!
He's taken everything.
He's destroyed my life.
Why should he get away with that?
I killed him.
I killed him.
What am I going to do, Merle?
What am I going to do?
Have you called the police?
Do you think I should?
You've got a dead body in your flat.
Look, they'll understand.
This man stole your house, he threatened you, your children.
It's a crime of passion.
I ground up the pills one by one.
Mixed them into the wine.
I watched him take a drink and then another one and then another one.
That's the definition of premeditated.
I'm going to go to prison.
OK, OK, OK, we can deal with this.
Have you told anyone?
Did you call anyone?
Did anyone see you come in?
I don't think so.
And I'm the only one you called?
OK. OK. OK.
I texted him from Bram's phone to get him back here.
OK, er... OK, Mike Fuller.
You don't know a Mike Fuller.
You know a Toby.
You've never met this man before.
I've been sleeping with him for months.
This man is a stranger.
A dodgy friend of Bram's.
OK. You didn't do this.
There was a falling-out.
£2 million, people have fallen out for less, haven't they?
Bram wanted all the money, killed him and ran.
But what if he hasn't?
What if he's back home now looking for me?
It's all gone.
And this is what you're left with.
Now, you can either cover this up... or go to the police and confess.
ENTRY SYSTEM BUZZES ENTRY SYSTEM BUZZES BUZZING Who's that?
Look, it doesn't matter.
Nobody knows we're here.
That's the important thing.
PHONE BUZZES Oh, it's her.
PHONE CONTINUES BUZZING PHONE LINE RINGS FI: I could go out and talk to her.
Maybe she knows where Bram is.
Maybe she knows where the money is.
Just forget her.
She doesn't matter.
We need to dump this phone.
It's going to have your number on.
CAR ENGINE STARTS SHE TURNS THE ENGINE OFF Leave that.
I used it.
It has my fingerprints on it.
It was here when you arrived.
You picked it up.
And then, erm... ..the police will find his body in a couple of days, a week maybe.
I have to come here tonight.
Tomorrow at the latest.
I don't have anywhere else to live.
OK, that's better.
You find his body and then call the police.
You recognised him from earlier, from outside the house.
We saw him when he came looking for Bram.
But before then, you had never set eyes on him.
So, Bram came back here and sent the texts...
..and drugged him.
They are Bram's pills, not yours.
I'm going to go.
How do I explain that the man I've been seeing has disappeared?
He was Toby.
This man is Mike.
They are two different people.
As long as the police think that, you're fine.
Two different men.
You keep that clear in your mind and everything will be OK. Why are you doing this for me?
I'm your friend.
It's going to be OK.
I'm going to dump this.
Wait half an hour and then phone.
And remember... ..you know Toby.
You don't know this man.
As long as there's no link between the two, you're fine.
PHONE LINE RINGS WOMAN:Emergency.
WOMAN:Would you say your husband was a violent man?
Not at all.
He had a temper sometimes, but nothing terrible.
Was the divorce acrimonious?
We shared custody.
We haven't actually filed for divorce.
Was he on any medications, antidepressants?
Yeah, antidepressants, I think.
Have you ever seen the dead man before?
Earlier today, he came to the house looking for Bram.
My neighbour and I spoke to him.
He seemed agitated.
And then left.
Did he say why he was looking for your husband?
Did he say where he was going?
He just drove off.
Why did you go to the flat?
I have nowhere else to live.
And you just found him there when you arrived?
I found him on the floor.
I checked him.
He wasn't moving.
I presumed he was dead.
You didn't see anyone leave the building?
No sign of your husband?
And you've never met... ..this man before?
Well, apart from earlier at the house, no.
He's a complete stranger.
WOMAN DETECTIVE: We believe he's... an associate of your husband's.
There are several texts on the mobile phone found at the property from a man called Mike.
It seems they were both involved in the property fraud.
You didn't see another phone at the scene?
The victim's phone.
Well, I'm sorry to put you through this.
I'm sure you've had an exhausting day.
So, I'll pass on everything that you've told us to the Fraud Unit.
And I'll make sure that they follow up on that immediately.
If we get any information about your husband's whereabouts, we'll let you know.
I appreciate that.
My colleague will take you home.
It was OK. And what did they ask you?
Did I know him?
Had I seen him before?
Why was I at the flat?
What he was like.
And did you mention me?
Well, just that we both saw him when he came to the house.
That was it.
I think she felt sorry for me.
Maybe... Maybe it's not the end of the world... ..losing the house.
The DI is going to have a word with the Fraud Unit.
They might be able to track down the money, to get some of it back.
I still have some of the furniture.
Maybe we could get a smaller place.
I can still make it just as perfect.
Are you hungry?
The boys have been very good.
Brushed their teeth.
Ready for bed.
Have you got my spelling book?
Maybe I should put you to bed.
Where will we live?
I don't know.
But I'll find somewhere nice.
What about Daddy?
Will we see him?
Well, soon, I hope.
At The Brewers, thank God.
Cake sale tomorrow.

'But now those parents have to live with what I did.
'The other driver, Mike, 'blackmailed me into defrauding my wife of her house.
'I 've returned the money to her.
'She had no knowledge of this fraud and absolutely no involvement.
'Mike assumed a false identity 'and took advantage of her vulnerable state.
'She thought she was in a relationship with a man called Toby.
'In fact, it was Mike.
'They were the same person.
Bu t she had absolutely no idea.
'I'm the guilty one here.
'Me and only me.'
