Duncan Allen (Ben Chaplin) tries to spend some quality time with his son but finds it difficult in the face of open hostility from his wife, Sarah Allen (Natasha Little).
Holly Evans (Charlotte Riley) struggles to separate her personal grievances from her professional ambitions - and only adds to Duncan's troubles by threatening to expose his relationship with sex worker, Krystyna (Kasia Koleczek).
James Edwards (Al Weaver) contacts an MI5 source ready to blow the whistle on the government's Resonance programme, while Ed Washburn (Paapa Essiedu) is forced to examine his journalistic ethics.
Duncan attempts to spend quality time with his son, Fred Allen (Benjamin Campbell), but finds it difficult in the face of Sarah’s open hostility. At the home of her billionaire boyfriend, Max Klein (Matt Rippy), Sarah informs Duncan that she and Max intend for him never to see Fred again.
Holly finds it difficult to separate her personal grievances from her professional ambitions. She adds to Duncan’s troubles by threatening to publicly expose his relationship with Kristina, the sex worker with whom he has a longstanding arrangement. In anticipation of the splash, Duncan is forced to explain to Fred that he has been paying for sex, while Kristina has questions of her own for Holly.
James reopens communication with Jon Brooks (Tom Bell), an MI5 source who is ready to blow the whistle on the government’s Resonance programme. When Amina Chaudury (Priyanga Burford) and Holly learn what the programme entails, they are convinced that the story will be the most important The Herald will ever run.
George Emmerson (David Suchet) presents Duncan with a seemingly impossible task, and Ed has no choice but to examine his own journalistic ethics, meanwhile Holly and Duncan go head-to-head.
