While out fishing with Ewan, Donald catches something odd - an old leather flying officer's hat of the type used in World War II. Soon, the Ministry of Defense is on the scene and they recover from the loch an old German Me-110 that obviously crashed there during the war. Paul's former commanding officer, Alex Faversham, is in charge of the operation and he is convinced the flight was carrying a German spy and so is keen to find out what may have happened to the passengers. Those who have the answer to that question band together however to protect a local secret that has lasted for 60 years. Jess meanwhile is feeling a bit down now that Duncan has left and Ewan tries to cheer her up. His own interest in a new barmaid at the pub gets in the way however. Molly hasn't been feeling well lately and has numerous visits from her doctor. Something is obviously wrong, even though she is pretending to be alright. Written by garykmcd
