♪ ♪ She's very convincing, isn't she?
Do you believe her?
Of course I do.
I'm an idealist.
Will... Look, the least I can do is put up with you being a cynical old sod every now and then.
Only now and then?
Maybe that's why we're friends.
Because we disagree about everything.
Well, not everything.
Well, we're disagreeing about whether we disagree, so... (chuckles) Would you like to come with this cynical old sod to the railway station?
Rachel's parents are on their way.
(sighs) When I phoned, they thought I was from the Home Office.
They were so damn proud, Will.
Well, if he's good enough for the Home Office.

She gave him the alibi.
Well, she hates the bastard-- why would she do that?
Rachel knew that in order to achieve peace, we cannot just converse with those who share our ideals.
We must hold out the hand of friendship to our enemies.
Bet you didn't think we'd catch up with you.
Rory St. Clair, I'm arresting you for the murder of Rachel Bromilow.
Do you see the harassment that we face?
I'd watch your mouth if I were you, son.
This is politically motivated.
Read this for me, if you would.
"Dear Miss Bromilow, With regard to your application, "we have pleasure in offering you the position in our international trade department."
Wasn't part of the plan, was it?
Rachel was supposed to step aside, have a family in a few years.
I knew who Rachel was-- she was never gonna be conventional.
She challenged everything.
Status quo, the establishment.
She challenged you.
GEORDIE: So, what was it?
Was she too fond of flaunting all her achievements?
WILL: What happened that night?
(voiceover): Was she stealing your glory, even then?
(exhales) First the job and now this.
Perhaps you should stay home.
And play the good little wife.

Petra doctored the minutes to place you at the debating society.
What did you promise her in return?
Petra hated that the CND had became a popularity contest.
The German and I had an understanding.
She knew what I did.
I knew what she wanted.
To be leader of the CND.
Except you took that from her, too.
Well, the group chose the leader it wanted.
I couldn't be seen to meddle in a democratic process.
Or you couldn't be seen to lose.
You hate losing, don't you?
And with Rachel out of the way, you didn't have to admit she beat you to that job.
It would've been wasted on her.
It would have been wasted on her.
What, all this because a working-class girl from Newcastle bested you?
See how superior you feel when you're in a cell.

I'm sure there's a joke in that somewhere.
You're not coming to the pub?

I've, uh, got something I've been meaning to do.
I think I've written enough letters.
It's time I went to see Leonard.
(motorcycle engine revs) How are things?
I trust they're making you feel welcome.
The housekeeper's... Rather a bigot?
(chuckles): I was going to say formidable.
You haven't met my mother.
(chuckles) Mr. Davenport-- he's setting a good example, I hope.
(sighs) I knew this posting would be a challenge.
So, I chose to keep an open mind.
Mr. Davenport is...
In truth, he's never there.
When he is, he's with a girl.
He said she's his stepsister.
She didn't seem very sisterly to me.
I'm sorry you had to cope with this alone.
What we do is a privilege, not a right.
I've fought to be here.
He treats it like an amusement, something to wile away the time.
I'd understand fully if you changed your mind.
God has brought me here.
