Further details

The Scottish Police Force are used to expecting the unexpected and in the third episode of spoof documentary, Scot Squad, there are plenty of surprises in store for the cops.

Bobby turns to Officer Karen's helping hands after he's indisposed following an unfortunate accident. However, when he asks for help with a visit to the loo she has to draw the thin blue line until Bobby produces a unique solution - a pair of grabbers.

Also this week, Knights of the Road, PCs Singh and McKirdy gallantly help out a hen do transport their obscene inflatable, while Chief Commissioner Miekelson's attempts at international diplomacy involves shouting loudly at a computer during a video conference.

Rural cops McIntosh and MacKay come face-to-face with nuisance farmer Murphy Williams once again who claims he's made an explosive discovery on his land. For once his outlandish claim turns out be accurate and the duo face a dramatic situation.

Urban officers PC McLaren and Fletcher misinterpret some questionable sign language. Also this week, newly-promoted PC Ken Beattie is called upon to provide a character reference for a familiar face, homeless pal Patrick Dillon.
