Series 1, Episode 2 - Fire And Terror
Habib takes a fancy to a fireman, much to Goody's horror - but this fireman seems keen to spend time with both officers. Meanwhile, Fowler is having a hard time with hoax callers, much to Grim's delight; even more so because he believes he is on the verge of catching a terrorist (although Kray seems to be spending a lot of time on the phone to the kebab shop).
Habib goes on a date with Gary the fireman and is very disappointed when he turns down the sex being offered to him on a plate. Goody's still trying his best to impress Habib himself and convince her that Gary isn't right for her.
Grim and his CID officers head off to join Special Branch outside the terrorist's home (after rubbing uniforms' noses in it) and successfully make the arrest. Back at the station Patricia allows a drunk past the front desk because "he's a sad useless excuse for a man and I thought you might get on". Roughly translated, she's angry that Fowler keeps avoiding sex!
Next, Grim arrives with the commander of Special Branch who asks to see Fowler. Whilst he rushes out to buy a leather jacket, Fowler is visited by a member of the Neighbourhood Watch from estate where the terrorist lived. He soon discovers that the so-called terrorist is none other than the hoax caller. As the man leaves he tries to take Habib, Goody and Gary hostage, in the course of which fireman Gary reveals he's rather fallen for someone after all.
