Storyline

Peter is hired by an Estonian woman, Aeste, who claims that grumpy local farmer Jack Thriplow has 'kidnapped' her child, of whom he claims to be the father. Further investigation uncovers the use of illegal labour. Meanwhile a nervous Lyle is entered for the annual dyke-leaping contest, resulting in him becoming a very dirty boy. And the less than civil Mr. Hill is snooping around, telling Peter that brother Simon was deeply in debt. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Lyle Anderson: Why aren't you in court with Miss Shevchenko?
Peter Kingdom: Because, my dear Lyle, in my experience the Law is something we lawyers should avoid at all cost. I can't stand the sight of blood. Courts are to lawyers what operating theatres are to doctors - best try other remedies first.
