Clocking Off Episode 3 Caps and Captions...

Clocking Off Episode 3 centres around Mack and his wife Katherine's relationship. That means we have quite a lot of Phil.

You'll find about 88 caps, which are 720 by 416 pixels in size. There is some nudity. Featured actors are Philip Glenister, Christine Tremarco, Lesley Sharp, Andrew Sheridan, Joan Campion, Wil Johnson, Jason Sampson and Darren Higham. Almost all of the caps are of Phil. I basically detail the plot of the entire episode, so if you don't want to know what it's about - you might not want to click.

We begin by seeing someone shaving. Who could it be? (I don't much care - I'm busy staring at the naked flesh.)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I'd know those eyelashes anywhere.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Oh look - it's Phil as James Mackintosh.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
With magically floppy hair! You may remember it was short in the small scenes we saw him in with Christopher Eccleston's episode. It must have grown quickly. (Actually, the episodes were probably shot out of sequence, because it's short again next episode.)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This is Mack kissing his wife's foot in a gently tender and slightly offputting show of affection.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This is a complete bitch from hell Mack's wife Katherine (who just happens to be a complete bitch from hell.)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack tries to wake her, but she's a lazy cow.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Which he tells her. (No. He doesn't. He dotes on her.)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This is KT, played by Andrew Sheridan, in a truly brilliant performance. He works for Mack. Unbeknownst to Mack, KT is having an affair with Katherine. He's not the first. Look at him - he's clearly a kid. Later on, we also find out he gets half his pay from disability.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack sits down for some lunch.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He tells his employees off for heckling KT. They're going on about KT having a girlfriend.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He's really quite insistent that they should leave him alone.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He invites KT to sit next to him at the dinner table, whilst still telling off his other employees.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Which KT does, feeling very uncomfortable, by the look of it.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack asks KT if he knows what he's doing with his girlfriend. KT acts very much like a scared rabbit, thinking Mack knows.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
But Mack just wants to give him a lesson on prophylactics.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
You can probably guess this one of my very favourite scenes.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack is so uncomfortable about it.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
And ends up foisting it off on Trudy, his assistant.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This is an example of KT and Katherine's relationship - not to mention the thoroughly unattractive sex scenes we get to see throughout Clocking Off. These scenes do not make sex look romantic in the slightest. And it certainly isn't romantic between KT and Katherine.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack comes home.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mmmm.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Now, the thing about Katherine is - she knows that Mack was coming home at this time. She's purposely set KT up to be found out.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I have to admit, I never understand Katherine's motives throughout this episode. I just don't. Look at him. He is lovely. Mack even appears to be a fine, upstanding man. He's a bit protective, perhaps - but I don't know if it's that she's the way she is because he's over-protective, or he's over-protective because she's the way she is. It infuriates me.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
And please take this moment to notice a Simmism slipping into our Philip's performance of this poor man.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
At the last minute, just before he's about to see KT, Katherine ushers him away. It turns out she's not completely heartless.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack really is very loving towards Katherine. Almost sickeningly so, on occasion.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
She says "do you know what I fancy? An Indian." And this is the result. Okay, so Mack's sense of humour leaves a lot to be desired. But he's still a good man, for the most part.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack even does housework.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
After KT winged his escape, he left behind something. And Mack sees it.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He looks around a bit, trying to understand.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
It's one of KT's shoes. But he doesn't know it's KT's. He just knows it isn't one of the workmen's.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The shoe confuses and worries Mack.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
But he doesn't confront Katherine about it.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He takes it to work and ogles it for a very long time.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Composes romantic poetry. Oh shoe oh-aye, Oh shoe oh-me, you're white and athletic, you fit like a dream.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Trudy worries about that a little bit. I'd just like to take this moment to say that I adore Trudy. She respects Mack. I love the relationship they have. You can tell they work well together.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack assures her he'll give the poetry a rest.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
We all cheer.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The next day we discover that KT's guilt has been building, and building. He steps in front of Mack's car.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Actually, it's hard to say that it's guilt. It's a form of guilt, sure, but it's not that he really thinks he's done anything wrong, I don't think. It's hard to tell with KT. Poor lad.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack's pretty devastated he ran over the boy. He rushes home to borrow Katherine's car to go to the hospital.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He tries to find out what happened. He still has no idea that KT was the one sleeping with Katherine. He won't even admit to himself that this is what he suspects the shoe was all about.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack reassures KT's grandmother that he's okay.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I think this is the first grin-type-expression we get from Phil. But I do have it on good authority that there's more to come. Just not in this episode. You'll have to wait.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This whole sequence is a good example of the caring nature Mack exhibits, I think. He genuinely tries to comfort KT's grandparents - and not because he's scared they'll sue or anything like that - he actually cares. Um. Yeah. I kind of adore Mack too.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack has to be breathalyzed because of the incident.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He's a bit wary about it, but does it anyway.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Which means we get to see that puffer fish expression Phil eventually teaches to Marc Warren when they work together on State of Play.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I give that a score of 8.5/10.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I give this a score of 9.5. Man. If he'd had a more open collar, that would have got 10 on the fangirlometer.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mmmm.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
So, Mack and Trudy visit KT's grandparents again. KT's grandparents have discovered his porn - and I kid you not - it's playing very loudly upstairs in this scene.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
It's very easy to tell that's what it is, too. The trashy music and the feminine moans.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Hahahaha. Lesley Sharp has the best expressions.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack's trying to explain about KT's girlfriend.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He's at a bit of a loss.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
But Trudy wants to go - because she's seen the other half to Mack's love-shoe pair - and needs to get him away from it before he starts serenading. See what I mean about Lesley having the best expressions?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack's at a bit of a loss again.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
And he smiles goodbye. Which made me emit a sound like this: HEEEEEEEEEE!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
KT is okay. He's a bit battered, and a bit bruised.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I really should have capped the part where Steve comes and speaks to Katherine, because Steve features heavily in the next episode. But I didn't. So I'll just tell you that Steve learns of the KT/Katherine thing through his son, who you saw earlier when Mack was all confused about what had happened. Steve goes to tell Katherine off. It appears he was one of those others she's had an affair with. Mack goes home and sees him.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He jumps to the wrong, but in another time - right, conclusion.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
And proves he's not entirely a fluffy bunny. Run away, Steve. Run. Away.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Okay, so - I'm a horrible person.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
But I tend to find that as wrong as I find this kind of violence, I find it oddly compelling.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He takes a metal rod to Steve. It was hard to cap the movement, but he really lays into him. The fact that someone like Mack, who we know is a Good Guy, would go to this extent because of his love for Katherine kind of --- kills me.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Even though I feel sorry for Steve, who on this occasion, did nothing wrong.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Trudy comes and tells Mack that Steve was around his place to organise a surprise birthday party.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
And Mack's devastated.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He's really, really sorry.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He apologises and says he can't help himself, because he loves her.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Which I know is no excuse but still makes me adore him anyway. He goes out of the factory, still in a dream-like state.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Trudy feels for him, because she knows the truth.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack goes home and tries to convince himself he's completely barking.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Katherine loves him, doesn't she?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
She'd never betray him.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
And then Mack visits KT's again.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He finds the shoe.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I have to admit, at this point, I was somewhat terrified for KT's life.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
After all - Mack's already run him over.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
But Mack just gives him the death stare.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This is the look I imagine Gene giving when telling a crim that he will cut them down if they touch a hair on his DI's head.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Because you just know he means it. Which - okay - thrills me in all kinds of ways.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
On the spittle rating mark, as detailed in the Episode 2 post, this rates at a full 10 - with added mucus. Once again - Andrew Sheridan was pretty much amazing in this episode.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Mack goes home again. This look shredded me into tiny pieces. Just. UGH. Mack.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
You know he's not going to confront Katherine about it. He's just going to continue being over-protective and miserable. Because he loves her.
