Laura: (miffed) Excuse me. I am suffering with shock and trauma from the loss of a close one.
2nd Man: How close?
Laura: I don’t know – I have no spatial awareness.
Man: What? Should we call the police?
2nd Man: The ‘Police!’
3rd Man arrives
3rd Man: I am the police.
Laura: I thought there would be more of you.
3rd Man: I’ve been dieting.
Man: Can I be called Doctor 1, now? It’s rather confusing.
Laura: Certainly, Doctor 1 – If that is your real name!
3rd Man: And I am DC Acey – and no puns on that or I shall have to nick you; with this penknife!
Dr 1: Can you provide a second opinion, Dr. Protocol?
Dr P: It usually takes longer, but I shall try… he’s dead!
DC Acey: Well done! Now, I must carry out some preliminary tasks. Firstly: Hello, hello, hello!
DC Acey: Is this the stiff?
Dr 1: No, that’s Laura!
DC Acey: Sorry, miss, if you’d move about more.
Dr P: I can say nothing more… But, I can see no cause for the deceased’s death – apart from a lack of breathing!
Laura: Are you really a doctor?
DC Acey: No, Miss, I am a Detective Constable! These two, however…
