Series 1, Episode 5 - Asylum

This week, the team deal with their first case of an asylum seeker.

Further details

It has been an uneventful day, apart from a two-hour interview of actor Mark Addy, who was detained by Clive because he recognised him from Game of Thrones. The team are about to head home, and Tariq is planning to invite Andy to his DJ gig tonight and impress her with his skills.

However, just before they leave, the most important and exciting thing ever to have happened at Northend delays them. They have a real-life, bona fide asylum seeker! Dr Jamilah Apeloko is a highly respected university lecturer from Nigeria and the team are determined to do everything in their power to help her - even if it means a late night...
