Episode Summary

Norma, off from work, is taken to her doctor appointment by her husband Chris – however she gets the wrong day – making her more upset. Mark is told off by his Manager about over budgeting and takes it out on Charlie and Mike. Jane enrols in an administration course. Charlie questions Ash over his resentment of Ken.

Parents, Ron and Sheila and their son, Kevin are angered at their pregnant daughter, Jackie’s lifestyle with her husband, Gary, who works as a showman on a fairground. Kevin, who resents Jackie, for always being second best to their parents, attacks her and sabotages one of Gary’s rides. Jackie is brought in first with cuts to her face, and later after the fairground ride breaks – three teenagers, Sally, Laura and Nick are all brought in with injuries. Kevin, seeing the horror of what he’s caused, confesses all to Duffy.

Wheelchair bound, Ted, collapses outside a factory with his wife, Carrie, who is campaigning that the factory caused his asbestos disease. Ted dies, and Karen tries to support Carrie by agreeing with her theory of where the blame lies. However, Mike angrily tells her, she should be careful what she says as a doctor – and Karen is later forced to retract what she’s said to a disappointed Carrie.
