Diary: What if Yates of the Yard had investigated Brutus?

With top level detective work, as with Grand Slam tennis, confidence is king, and even the most resilient of officers is vulnerable to the corrosive acid of self doubt after public humiliation. So an alkaline antidote is required for John Yates, who was promoted to Acting Deputy Commissioner of the Met as reward for acting out the part of someone seriously investigating the News of the World... dramatic history's most convincing portrayal of a serving policeman since Kenneth Williams in Carry On Constable. So I am pleased to introduce the confidence-rebuilding feature Yates of The Yard Down the Ages, our first instalment finding the time-travelling cop transported to Rome in March, 44 BC. "Right then, what's going on here?" "It ain't what it looks, Clouseauus Maximus, I never touched him." "Mr Brutus, you are holding a knife stained with Caesar's newly shed blood." "Yes, but I only pulled it out from his chest to try to save him." "Come, come, sir, I heard him cry, 'Et tu, Brute?' with his last breath not two minutes ago." "No wonder in all this commotion, chief, but you misheard. What he cried was, 'Yeti! You brute!' It was the abominable snowman, it come rampaging aht the Senate, and done him with the blade." "Honest?" "Straight up, guv. Why'd I want to kill him? He was like a father to me." "In that case, Mr B, sorry to have troubled you, and you're free to go. Case closed."
