|Schoolboy, Peter Cronk, begins work experience at the surgery. He is enthusiastic and almost as|
pedantic as Martin himself, but he has an ulterior motive for the placement that almost ends in disaster.
Sally Tishell's husband, Clive, reappears after several months' absence, anxious to help her in the
chemists, though she is less than enthusiastic. Bert, hiding out on Ruth's land, attempts to recover the
gear from his repossessed restaurant. Martin and Louisa attend a therapy session, but it is the shared
experience when one of her pupils falls ill that starts to reconcile them.
