Storyline

Ben's name is confused with that of somebody who has recently died so that his obituary appears in the local paper The Herald. There is a plus side in that he feels he no longer needs to go to work or do the things he hates. The down side - apart from Michael having to write a eulogy for his funeral - is that an amorous neighbour now sees Susan as being an eligible widow and comes after her. Before the situation is righted Nick, hearing that Susan plans to turn his old room into a nursery, also decides that he wants to come back to live at home. Written by don @ minifie-1
