Hot on the trail of a major tip-off, city partners McLaren and Fletcher cross paths with Wild Turkey, who claims he's an undercover cop involved in a big drugs sting. Intrigued, the pair go along for the ride as Wild Turkey's 'haunners' but get more than they bargained for.

News of a big barn yard break-in reaches PCs McIntosh and Mackay. The rural enforcers discover Farmer Williams's prize chicken, Scarlett Johansen, has disappeared. Fearing she's fallen foul of the mysterious big black cat, the fearless officers go on a night-time stake-out but end up spooked by their discovery.

Chief Commissioner Cameron Miekelson is charged with the task of selecting a new slogan for the unified police force but is left underwhelmed by his team's suggestions.

Elsewhere, streetwise cops, PC McKirdy and PC Singh can't believe their eyes when they spot a cyclist on a bike, on top of a car roof; Sgt Karen Ann Millar showcases the new video messaging system; Volunteer Officer Ken Beattie embraces his new state of the art camera; while Bobby Muir reports an embarrassing mix-up between an Indian head massage and colonic irrigation.

Scot Squad - crime-fighters who prove there's more to Scotland than porridge, pro-golf and The Proclaimers.
