Needs some clarifying.[edit]

The article sugests that he Killed him self in 1984 but that he is still alive. Are we to assume he failed to kill himself when he hanged himself or is the hanging a lie?( (talk) 23:02, 27 August 2008 (UTC))Reply[reply]

The article states that Martin killed himself but that Waldorf is still alive. Robert Brockway (talk) 15:31, 17 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As one of the police officers directly involved in this incident, I have an in-depth knowledge of the case. David Martin did indeed commit suicide by hanging. I have changed the page to reflect this ColneyBoy (talk) 09:10, 19 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Who was Stephens? Was she really Martin's girlfriend? Why was Waldorf in a car with Stephens? Were they friends? Was he editing her film? Format (talk) 05:20, 1 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

She was his girlfriend on and off. Waldorf didn't know Stephens . She knew Purdy. Purdy was driviing Stephens to view a flat that Waldorf was moving out of and she may have wanted to move into. She didn't have a film for him to edit. Waldorf was working for The South Bank Show At the time and had just met Purdy after work. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 21:21, 13 July 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nick Cooper's deleting the facts[edit]

The six main witnesses to the incident are the three Police and the others. The three Police are not going to be frank about their spectacular mistake. The civilian driver ran away, terrified. Waldorf was distracted by serious injuries. Miss Stephens has no reason to lie. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:34, 22 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We're not saying she is lying. We're saying she hasn't presented any reliable sources, which you need on Wikipedia. Geoff B (talk) 13:16, 22 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We have an anomaly with regard to the film. I've just created an article based on the information from IMDB which suggests it was aired on 11 December 1994, while this article says 21 November. Does anyone know what the actual date was? TheRetroGuy (talk) 19:55, 8 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Neither is right. It was actually screened on 12 November 1994. Nick Cooper (talk) 14:52, 26 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


If my memory serves me right, David Martin had arranged the meeting in the (now closed) Nag's Head pub in Heath Street Hampstead from where he fled into HAMPSTEAD Station (London's deepest station), down the stairs, onto the track toward Belsize Park station, where he was arrested. — Preceding unsigned comment added by G4GRS (talkcontribs) 14:26, 26 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dumping ground[edit]

Ingleton: "perhaps the worst period so far for the British police , so far as weapons are concerned"; "this terrible tragedy continues to be cited by opponents whenever the question of arming the police comes up" &mdash HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 19:30, 11 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
