His mother, Morven, who is an old friend of Harry’s wife arrives and Ellen is angry that she thinks she can fix everything without even listening to her son. Harry is furious when Ellen stands up to Morven and patronisises her about not understanding as she doesn’t have any children. Meanwhile Daniel admits he has only been mixing with drug addicts to provide information to the police; something he wanted to do because he felt guilty about having introduced his girlfriend, who died, to drugs.

Steve brings Martin into the department but delays getting treatement for fear of the police. When he eventually collapses – it’s too late and Martin dies in resus.
