Neil puts his career on the line
DI Neil Manson persuades paranoid schizophrenic Michael Simms to put down the knife he's holding to Shelley Cooper's throat. When a gun shot rings out, Neil radios for help and chases after Michael who flees the scene. Ending up at a hospital, Neil sees Michael push his psychiatrist, Dr Julia Bickham, into her office. Certain Michael has a gun, Neil alerts CO19 and Michael is fatally shot. But he's gutted when Julia tells him that Michael didn't have a gun. The next day, the Department of Professional Standards visits, and Neil insists he acted without prejudice. Later, Shelley's ex Chris admits that he attacked Shelley - and planted the ski mask and knife in Michael's house. As the case unravels, Neil realises that he caused the death of an innocent man. Will his career be over? VIDEO: Watch a preview of The Bill here
