Charlie faces an enquiry over the death of his patient, Miss Fairfax, and is quizzed by Mehta over his and Otto's recent involvement with the police though the panel exonerates him of professional negligence. Otto travels to Dorset with Angela and eager young student doctor Sam for an over-night hospital visit to an unmarried girl, raped by her father, who is giving up her triplets for adoption. Taking advantage of his absence Elizabeth also sends her son Thomas away on holiday in order to accommodate Mulligan. Whilst she is waiting for him Charlie arrives, confessing to nervousness about the abortions and also party to the events in Cyprus. After he has left Mulligan turns up for sex with Elizabeth though he fails to bring the promised evidence against Otto. Jean gives a dinner party for her in-laws and colleagues but it is a disaster and she runs to Angela for consolation.
