[waves crashing] [seagulls calling] [Bob] Here they are now.
[car approaching] [car door closes] [Bob] Thanks for getting here so quick.
[Ellie] Why's she on the steps?
[Bob] She came to report in person, but the front desk was shut.
She phoned 101 from a payphone round the corner.
[Ellie] Oh, God, the poor woman.
Why didn't you take her in?
-She didn't want to do that.
-[Ellie] What's her name?
[Bob] Only got her first name.
[Ellie] Okay, did she say anything else?
Trish, is it?
My name's Ellie.
I'm a detective with Wessex Police.
You called about an attack.
A sexual attack.
We'd like to take you somewhere where we can talk.
It's just a short drive away.
Is that all right?
The car is just over here, all right.
This is Alec, he's my colleague.
We work together.
This is Trish.
I've just put an evidence sheet on the seat, as a precaution.
We only do this in case any evidence falls from your clothing.
It's nothing to worry about.
[engine starts] [rain pouring] [buzzer sounds] Trish, hello, my name's Anna, I'm a crisis worker here at the SARC.
This is a dedicated Sexual Assault Referral Center.
I'm going to be with you all the time you're here, to make sure you understand everything that's happening.
If you're feeling unsafe or uncomfortable in any way, we will stop.
Everyone will be led by you.
Come on through.
We keep these rooms sealed, so we know they're forensically secure.
The FME's on her way.
[Ellie] Now I'm gonna take a mouth swab, and the reason we do this first is basically so you can have a cup of tea.
D'you mind opening your mouth for me?
All right, darling.
Gonna go right round, okay?
All right, well done, nearly done.
Okay, just under the tongue.
You're doing really well.
Okay now, second request, also comfort-related.
Do you think you could do a quick, um, urine sample for me?
[line ringing] -[David] Hello?
-Hi, Dad, it's only me.
Oh, uh, you on your way home?
Uh, not yet.
Something's come up.
-Doesn't it always?
So look, I...
I don't know when I'll be back.
How's it going?
Have you got Fred to bed okay?
Could you, uh, pick up a loaf on your way home?
Okay, look, ki...
Kiss those boys for me and I'll try not to wake you if I'm late back, okay?
I don't sleep much anyway.
Not since your mum-- Yeah, all right.
See you then.
[footsteps approaching] How's your dad?
How long is he gonna stay?
We haven't discussed it.
Still, free childcare, though, eh?
Is she still in there?
Did you see the injury on the back of her head?
And marks around both wrists.
She's not carrying any ID, or a mobile.
-So still no surname.
-Do you not know her?
It's not Trumpton, I don't know everybody.
[door opens] Hey, all right?
We're gonna go back in here and have a chat.
Trish, d'you mind telling me your surname?
Trish, you told the emergency operator that you were attacked.
Are you able to tell us where the attack took place?
[heavy breathing] You can't remember or you don't want to tell us right now?
Um, where do you live, Trish?
Oh, yeah, I know it.
It's, um, just off the coast road, about five miles out of town?
Yeah, I live in town, just at back of Coniston Field.
Um, the man that attacked you, Trish.
Was it someone that you know?
I didn't see.
Do you remember anything from the attack?
I could hear water.
When I came round, I, I was on my back, on the earth, it was damp.
Someone was, um... [inhales] He was having sex with me.
[Alec] You're doing great, Trish.
Yeah, you really are.
Did you see his face?
And you were knocked unconscious before the attack?
Can you remember where you were, or what you were doing when that happened?
[breath trembling] Were you tied up, Trish?
[breathing heavily] Behind my back.
Trish, after the attack, were you left where it happened?
Or were you transported somewhere else?
I was left there.
How did you get to the police station tonight?
You don't have anything to be sorry about.
[Anna] Can you just stand on the sheet for me and I'll pull the curtain across so it's private.
As gently as you can.
Okay, be back in a minute.
[somber music playing] [camera shutter clicking] [Anna] You okay?
[Trish sniffling] [Anna] Nearly done.
[shower running] [exhales] Abrasions and bruises at the tops of her legs, signs of forced penetration.
Yeah, but the injuries, they don't look fresh.
More like a couple of days old.
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
If the attack didn't happen today, we need to find out when, and what she's done since then.
But if she's not ready to talk... Well, we'll get her home, see if we can find out more then.
When was the last stranger rape round here?
We don't know it's a stranger rape.
Until we get more information, we can't know if she knew her attacker or not.
I'm not saying it definitely is, I'm asking when the last one was?
Well, not in my career.
I'm going to refer you on to Wessex Rape Response.
They'll allocate you an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor who should be in touch within 24 hours.
Carol can prescribe the morning-after pill, if you think that might be appropriate.
We'll also make you a sexual health clinic appointment.
I'm going to hand you back to the police now, Trish.
I just need you to know, there's a lot of support for what you're going through.
There are people who will look after you, help you and guide you.
You will survive this.
[door opens] We're gonna drive you home now, Trish.
Have you got any more questions before we do that?
D'you believe me?
Who did this to me?
[Ellie] Have you got your front door keys?
All right, sweetheart?
[Ellie] Do you live by yourself, Trish?
She's away in London with friends.
She's due back tomorrow.
[Ellie] Okay, don't worry about that for now.
[Trish sighs] What about Leah's dad?
We're... we're separated.
Does he live nearby?
We're gonna need his details.
Make a cup of tea, eh, sir?
He makes really strong tea.
I think he must've been a smoker and it's killed his taste buds.
I quite like the way he makes it.
But don't tell him that, though.
[birds chirping] [knocking] Every time!
Make the tea first and then do your nosing around.
Her phone's over there.
Number of texts and calls, don't seem to have been checked.
But the door and the window locks are all secure, she's got a light sensor out back and a burglar alarm.
I don't think she's at risk here.
Well, not unless her attacker's got a key.
How's she doing?
Has she said anything more?
No, not yet.
Think she can't remember?
Or she just don't want to tell us?
She's still in shock.
We gotta give her some time.
We might not have time.
If she was attacked by a stranger, other people could be at risk.
Yeah, all right, I know.
Now take a look at the calendar, just there.
If the injuries are two days old, takes you back to Saturday.
-Her mate's 50th.
Could explain why she's so reluctant to talk about it.
Does anyone else have keys?
Um, Annie, neighbor two doors down.
Uh, also Cath, my mate.
We saw you had an invite to Cath's party last Saturday.
Did you go to that, Trish?
Is that where the attack happened?
Was it during the party?
Was it someone at the party?
Um, I was outside, someone hit me on the back of the head.
Knocked me out.
Cath's party was Saturday night.
It's now Tuesday morning.
So what did you do between Saturday night and reporting the attack last night?
I came home.
[Alec] How did you get home?
I think I walked.
From where you woke up, at the party?
But you don't know where that was exactly?
It was by the water.
What sort of water?
[exhales] Do we have to do this now?
It's okay, you're doing really well.
So after you got home, what did you do then?
I just lay on the bed.
I thought if I just lay there, maybe it'd go away.
And Trish, the clothes we took from you yesterday, are they not the clothes you wore when you were attacked?
Okay, and what have you done with those clothes?
Uh, I, I threw 'em in the corner of my room.
When we're done here, we'll go to the party location.
[Trish] I'm supposed to be on shift today.
Where d'you work?
Flintcombe Farm Shop, on the till.
We can drop in there later.
Tell 'em you're not very well and you need some days.
My mate, she works there too, she'll... she'll wanna know what's happened.
I'll sort it, don't worry.
Do I get police protection?
Is there anyone I can call to come and be with you?
-Maybe a friend, or a relative.
-Did you not hear me?
I don't want anyone knowing.
Trish, you need support.
You can't be on your own.
But I am.
I just am.
I shouldn't really do this, but, um...
I'm gonna give you my number, okay?
Any time you wanna talk, you need anything, day or night, you give me a ring, all right?
Don't tell him I gave you that.
[Trish] Thank you.
You must be exhausted.
How're you feeling?
We will need you to come in and make a full statement, soon as you're ready.
You'll hear from your ISVA soon.
You've got your panic alarm.
The police can be here really quickly and no one will mind you using it.
We'll see you soon.
[car engine starts] How far away is this place?
[Ellie] Five-minute drive.
She said the attack took place near water.
Do you think she meant the sea?
Why say water and not waves or sea?
Why'd she wait, Miller?
Why'd she not report it sooner?
Why'd she come home?
Everyone responds differently.
We've already lost... [sighs] Sixty hours?
If the attack happened at the party, that's a long list of people to interview and eliminate, and the attacker's still out there.
[mobile ringing] Hello?
-Are you okay, Trish?
I was, um, I was just checking this number worked.
I've locked all the doors and the windows.
Try and rest.
You've got the panic alarm.
Don't be afraid to use it.
And you can call me any time.
How am I gonna tell my daughter?
Look, try not to think of that for now.
Okay, we're gonna take all this one step at a time and there'll be plenty of us around to support you.
-You gave her your number-- -Oh, don't start.
-You gave her your number!
-Your personal number!
-Yes, I did.
-What've I told you?
-She needed it.
-Every time, Miller!
-Pardon me for being human.
We investigate, support services support!
Support services aren't there yet.
You can't keep doing this.
Oh, what, are you keeping count?
If I'm so annoying, why did you come back?
-Oh, don't start.
-You're always having a pop-- There's a protocol.
I did not miss this, you know, when you weren't here, the constant berating.
She can't be ringing you all the time.
She's been raped!
[Alec] I didn't know this was out here.
What is it, part of a village?
[Ellie] No, it's an old manor house, with a few cottages nearby that used to be for the estate workers.
Oh, and there's a little church.
But there's no shops or services, nothing like that.
Axehampton House is available for private hire for weddings, birthdays and anniversaries.
Not today, it's not.
But it's not gated, so anyone can just drive up here.
There's another road in as well, on the other side of the grounds, by the house.
What're you doing?
Well, I've been up half the night, you didn't even let us stop for a coffee or a bacon sarnie.
[Alec] Oh, God, what's that?
It's a goodie bar.
I keep them handy for Fred.
[Alec] How long's that been in there?
I don't care.
-Do you want half?
-[water flowing in distance] -[crow cawing] Wait.
D'you hear that?
[suspenseful music playing] I'll take a look down there.
Perfect spot if you don't wanna be seen or heard, though.
Possible dried blood on that stone there.
I think that's the corner of a condom wrapper.
All with the sound of running water nearby.
I think this is where it could have happened.
This is DI Hardy.
I'm at Axehampton House.
We have a possible crime scene.
[indistinct chatter] Sorry, sorry, it's been one of those days.
Who am I kidding, it's always one of those days.
Let's talk about you.
Five clients so far.
How're you finding things?
Um, Karen, my last one.
That was tricky.
I don't think I handled that brilliantly.
Karen's a vulnerable one.
She has had an incredibly hard life.
And I feel bad for letting it get to me.
'Cause I knew it'd be difficult, but, it's just, sometimes...
I don't know if this is for me.
Listen, everyone who's worked here has been where you are now.
You just have to decide, is it too demanding, or can you push on through.
What do you think?
This job isn't easy.
We're meeting women in crisis.
Some have mental health issues.
But I've watched you in training, in pilot sessions, in real life situations.
You've got something special to offer, Beth.
We need you.
This client referral just came in.
[telephone ringing] [machine beeps] [Trish over recording] Hi, this is Trish and Leah, leave us a message.
[machine beeps] Message for Trish.
This is Beth Latimer.
I've been given your number.
I think you might be expecting my call.
I was hoping to come and see you either today or tomorrow, so if you want to give me a call back, my number here is 0-1-6-3-2 9-6-0-1-3-1.
Look forward to talking.
[Paul] You're just going to stand and watch?
Now you think I'm being weird.
Yeah, you are being a bit weird.
I'm interested, ain't I?
Who buys a book like that in the town where it happened?
-People care, Mark.
I reckon they just like a freak show.
Even after three years.
Why don't you go in there?
It was your decision to do the book.
Biggest mistake of my life.
It's done more harm than good.
Hello, petal, thank you for waiting.
Could you sign it for Tony, please?
God's sake, Mark...
Look, I understand you're regretting it now, but skulking in the bushes watching isn't gonna help.
Tell him, will you?
I have been, for the past half an hour.
Worried I'm gonna spoil your sales, Mag?
Oh, that's not what I'm saying, and you know it.
You wanted to do it, you gave me the interviews.
We can't stop it being out there.
I know that now, don't I?
[sighs] [Brian] Exterior scene, middle of nowhere, open to the elements, already two days behind before we've even started.
First thing we need is to confirm the blood traces found on the stones match Trish Winterman's.
Is this where she was knocked unconscious?
We don't have that information yet.
More likely somewhere by the house.
So the scene could be from here, all the way up to the house?
You don't like to make things easy for us, do you?
Sorry if we're inconveniencing you.
We couldn't find any obvious drag marks or footprints.
You might have more luck.
And see if you can find any evidence of her attacker having had a hiding place near the house.
Right you are.
We got preliminary fragments of blue twine or wire from the victim's wrist wounds.
I want to know if you find anything like that.
And she was struck in the back of the head, so we'll be looking for anything that might've been used for the blow.
Violent attack, ligature traces, possible use of a condom.
Starts to look like it was pre-meditated.
How about you do your dusting, and you leave us to sort the conclusions, eh?
I think you should say sorry to Brian.
And you wonder why we call him shit face.
Let us know what you find.
[car door opens and closes] [Alec] This is where Trish works as well?
We'll need to let them know she won't be in for a while.
Can I ask you a question, Miller?
How long have they been calling me shit face?
Since you first arrived.
I will put your receipt in the bag, all right?
[woman] Thank you.
[Alec] Cath Atwood?
DS Miller and DI Hardy, Wessex Police.
Could we have a chat, please?
Oh, okay, right.
Um, Ed, can I have a couple of minutes?
These people need a word.
-Can you not see she's on shift?
-For God's sake, Ed.
DI Hardy, DS Miller, Wessex Police.
Who are you?
This is my shop.
What's it concerning?
-Can you make it quick?
Can we talk in private?
One of your staff members, Trish Winterman.
She won't be in for a while.
Um, personal reasons.
Why am I hearing this from you?
Thanks for letting us borrow Cath.
[Ellie] We're investigating an incident that took place at your party on Saturday night.
[Cath] Bloody Ed.
I knew it.
Look, he was as much at fault as Jim, and don't let him tell you otherwise.
They were just like a couple of drunk school kids.
Was there a fight at the party?
Why, is that not what this is about?
There's been an allegation of rape.
-But... Oh, my God, who?
We can't reveal details.
Yeah, but I knew all the women who were there... Shit.
Is it Trish?
It's just that she's not been in, and she's not returning any of my calls or my texts.
Is she all right?
Is she all right?
And we'll need a copy of the full guest list from Saturday night.
Uh, yeah, sorry.
Yes, you will need to speak to my husband, Jim.
He did the invites.
His garage is in town.
I'll give you his number.
How many people were at the party?
Um, I don't know I, I... We didn't keep tabs on final numbers in the end.
We were just telling people to pitch up if they fancied it.
How many men?
There were fifty men at your party on Saturday night?
Yeah, at least fifty.
[Alec] Trish Winterman of West Flintcombe has made an allegation of rape against an unknown attacker.
Uh, the incident is alleged to have taken place at Axehampton House on Saturday night.
She was attending a party thrown by Cath and Jim Atwood.
She was knocked unconscious somewhere within the grounds and was raped, possibly close to the lake.
At this stage it's unclear whether her attacker was known to her.
Myself and DS Miller took her to the SARC in Poole last night.
We're awaiting preliminary forensics, and SOCO are just starting work at the scene now.
Wait, sorry, when did she report this?
But the attack happened on Saturday.
It's a bit of a gap.
Are we sure she's genuine?
When you've completed your Sexual Offenses training, Katie, you'll understand we always start from a position of believing the victim.
Sure, but-- Given the specific injuries, the details of her account, matching facts at the possible crime scene and an overall assessment of her emotional state, we're working on the assumption it's genuine.
Just asking the question.
All right, you're new, we forgive you.
[Alec] As of yet, we've made no public statement.
The Chief Super is aware.
Once we've got initial forensics, we'll make a call on the risk to public safety.
In the meantime, not a word gets out... [mobile ringing] Sorry, sorry!
Yep, this is Mrs. Miller.
Why, what's the matter?
I am so sorry.
He's so sorry.
Yeah, really sorry.
I mean, where did you even get this?
[woman moaning on device] Oh!
I didn't mean to press...
I don't know how...
It is something we're having to deal with a lot more recently.
Right, so it's not just him?
Tom and another boy have been caught supplying links and files to a number of other students.
Oh, for God's sake.
Now, I don't know what you consider to be acceptable in your own home...
I don't consider this to be acceptable in my home!
I don't watch this!
We don't have porn in my home!
We are excluding Tom and the other student for one week.
I am, I'm mortified and disgusted at his behavior, and it will not happen again.
I'm sure we all understand how tough it has been for you as a family this last few... No, no, no, don't say that.
It isn't about that.
-[school bell ringing] Tom.
[indistinct conversations] You're 15.
Well, everyone watches this stuff.
You are not everyone!
You are better than that.
You have to be better than that.
I will not have you be your father's son.
[sighs] [Alec] This is a live situation, prioritize this one.
We absolutely cannot afford to wait.
Preliminary results, whatever you can tell me.
Soon as you can, thank you.
Sorry, darling, didn't mean to keep you waiting.
-Can you talk about it?
-How's the homework?
Um, I'm gonna hang out in town with the guys for a bit.
Maybe go round one of their houses.
I'll be back by 10:00.
You'll still be at work, anyway.
Just make sure you all stick together.
Don't walk home alone if it's after dark.
You can call me if it gets late.
I'll come and give you a lift, I won't mind.
Dad, what's going on?
Just be careful.
Don't mention this to your mates.
Well, thanks for freaking me out.
See you later.
[engine revving] [cell phone ringing] Yeah, what's up, Cath?
Trish was raped at our party on Saturday night.
But how'd you know?
The police have just been here.
They're after the invite list.
Uh... Are they sure?
[Cath sighs] I've just rung her, she's not answering.
Do you think I should go round?
Um, if she's not answering to you, she probably wants to be on her own.
I just feel like it's our fault.
[giggling] How was the English exam, Chlo?
It was all right, I suppose.
Didn't have any of the questions they told us to prepare.
Well, I'm sure you did your best.
Thursday, is it?
Feel like I can't remember anything.
Even though I've had a year longer than everyone else.
Well, whatever happens, we're proud of you.
You know, for going back and sticking at it.
How was your day, Mum?
Had my appraisal today, seemed to go all right.
And I got a new client.
Haven't seen her yet, but, she doesn't live too far, so... Well, that's not good.
A woman round here got attacked?
Oh, you know I'm not supposed to talk about it.
If a woman round here has been attacked, I don't want either of you walking anywhere alone after dark.
We don't need you looking after us.
Thanks for dinner.
Dad, don't go.
-Mark, come on.
-Bye, little Lizbug.
Look after your mum and sister, will you?
See you Thursday, after the French exam?
-Mark, I didn't mean to-- -Bye.
[sighs] [Chloe] It's bad enough he hardly comes round anymore.
You don't have to say things like that.
[engine starting] [sighs] [indistinct chattering over TV] [haunting music playing] [mobile vibrating] Hello?
You all right?
[Trish] I remembered.
There was something in my mouth.
[stuttering] He'd put something in there to gag me.
I, I thought I was going to suffocate.
And I started to choke, and, and he knew I was coming round, so he...
He put his arm over my eyes so I couldn't see him.
And then I think I passed out.
When I woke up again, the thing in my mouth was gone.
And my hands weren't tied.
That is all really useful stuff, Trish.
Why did he choose me?
[sniffles] [knocking on door] What the hell are you doing here?
I was passing, saw your light on.
Halfway up a hill, at 2:00 in the morning?
All right, I drove over, I was hoping you'd still be awake.
Don't be a twat about it.
Look, Trish called me and she told me that her attacker put something in her mouth to gag her.
I just got the initial forensics.
Cloth fibers found in her mouth swabs, confirms what she's told you.
They also found traces of blue fisherman's twine in her wrist wounds where he tied her up.
And her attacker definitely used a condom when he raped her.
I have to make this a Gold Incident, Miller.
This wasn't opportunistic.
It was planned and pre-meditated.
Trish's attacker went to that party intending to commit rape.
Which means we have a sexual predator who is a danger to the public.
