Episode Summary

Jimmy crashes the night at the house of a party, with his latest girlfriend, Andrea. In the morning, he discovers her unconscious after taking drugs and calls 999. At A&E, she reveals herself to be a Student Nurse, and lies to Duffy and Julian that Jimmy stole the drugs for her from the hospital. Duffy is ready to suspend him, until she tells Charlie the truth.

A racist warehouse foreman, Ron and a worker, Sam, collapse after inhaling chlorine fumes from the floor that’s been cleaned. A Sri-Lankan scivvy worker, Jeevan, drags them out. At first, Ron shouts abuse at Jeevan until he realises he saved his life. Sam has a pulmonary edema and arrests, but the team save him.

Howard Collier and his wife, Caroline, take his mother, Rose, to visit an old people’s home, but she is violently vomiting up blood, so an ambulance is called. All Caroline is worried about is that it may affect Rose’s chances of being accepted at the nursing home and says she doesn’t want her back and gets Howard to ask Julian if there’s any way they can end her life – Julian is appalled. However, she dies anyway, from cancer in the stomach.

A couple, Brian and Jodie, are found by a landowner sleeping in a shed. He pushes Brian, and he cuts his head. In A&E, as Jodie waits for him to be stitched up, she has stomach pains. The team discover she’s in labour.

And a carpenter, Derek Tilsley, comes in with glass lodged in his hand. Being disturbed by his son, Beth fails to remove it – Julian is called to do it.
