Duck ID

I took these photos in I think, September. I think they are of the same bird. I would like your views on if you think its a Tufted Duck or a Tufted Duck hybrid (and why you think, you think what you think). Also, if you could comment on age, sex and the birds moult (if any) and the secondaries.
There is a small debate about its ID.

No chancers need reply!

Thanks in advance.
