    It's an actor with comedy glasses on.

    There is nothing to understand.

    Well, Corbett's pushed his luck a few steps too far! :eek: I need some time to process all of this and recover.

    A bit underwhelmed with tonight's episode.
    Question- Corbett told McQueen ( she seemed suspicious ) that the move out of the printers was justified because it made sense to move on ( made sense ) but why then was the ' brothel ' ( unfortunate term given the nature of the girls kept against their will / circumstances ) left to be ' discovered' ? She could have been 'caught up ' in that raid ?

    Why is Mrs Ted involved?

    Hargreaves is clearly a lower level red herring and Corbett has gone completely rogue now. It all seems to point to Ted what with him getting rid of his computer. But if he was ‘H’ surely he would have more money?

    I thought at one point tonight that Jill was a recruiter who wanted Ted to go over to the dark side what with the loss of Hargreaves.

    Tonight definitely felt like a filler episode but still some food for thought.

    Hastings definitely needs to be wary of Jill and that federation rep with the offer of compensation for his financial losses. Hope Ted realises that the timing is a bit too convenient.

    Concerned about Corbett's mental state and his decision making. I think he will try to lure Ted back by threatening Mrs Hastings but hopefully won't cross the line even further by harming her. Still don't think Ted is H but he's definitely hiding something... I'm intrigued to see what.

    I think McQueen is higher up than Corbett recognises and also a big threat to him. I also think she might be aware or suspect that he's a UCO but the gang leaders have been playing the long game to wait for him to cross the line.

    Hargreaves was definitely involved and bent (I mean, how else do you end up at a raid with a balaclava on?) but I don't think he's H.

    Who do we think the mystery unidentified man visiting the house was?

    Too many senior officers with a name starting with "H"!

    I can just about accept that Corbett didn't move out of the brothel, as this would mean the girls were saved, and a good UCO would do this. But he is pretty much barking, I fear.
    But Ted?! What was he doing with the computer? Why is he falling for the rubbish about money that Moffatt is telling him? How come he's so broke? He must get a good wage.
    I spotted a photo of Jackie Laverty on the wall. I await developments.
    And have they fixed Ted's toilet yet?

    The mystery man typing to John can't spell !!!! Well couldn't spell 'definitely'...is that a red herring or a significant clue ?

    I spotted that. I always used that word in spelling tests for students. It's one of my pet peeves.
    I bet Ted can spell.
    After further anxious discussion with my husband, I think Ted was putting his computer into a safe place. You wouldn't wrap it up so carefully if you wanted it destroyed. Goodness knows who can get into his room at the TravelTavern. He may be ensuring he isn't implicated. In which case, he shouldn't keep meeting the creepy man who offers him money in a dodgy way.

    Thank you @Admin Princess but I cannot claim it as my own - it's from Alan Partridge.
