The fifth episode is speechless

A person who is loyal to the system eventually becomes the enemy of the system.

After watching the fifth episode, I feel that in the eyes of some people (such as Becky's biological father), Fulcher is worse than a serial killer. I really don't know who the bad guy is. The 2011 case took place, and the disciplinary inspection was in 2014, during which time Fulcher has been suspended.

His wife wanted him to resign from the very beginning, but he has been reluctant to resign because of pension and living considerations. Therefore, the relationship between husband and wife was very tense.

What motivated him to make up his mind was that he was assigned to do some irrelevant work after his reinstatement, and the second was a conversation with the wife of Ray, a colleague who committed suicide.

Becky's mother was very supportive of Fulcher, but the petition to amend the bill was unsuccessful. At that time, Theresa May was still the Home Secretary, and there may have been various political forces in the process.

Because I have also been beaten by the system, I understand Fulcher in this episode very well. Martin Freeman portrayed Fulcher's anger, embarrassment, helplessness at the time, and the ease after his resignation very well. There were struggles in the process, and Fulcher even sat on the bench where the suspect confessed.

Every time I watch this kind of British drama based on real events, it is particularly depressing.
