With Eleanor recovering from her operation and half the school down with the flu Martin agrees to baby-sit James for Louisa. When her husband seeks Martin's advice pharmacist Mrs. Tishell volunteers to mind the child but she has long nurtured a hidden love for Martin - even creating a shrine to him in her wardrobe - and now,after an excess of self-prescribed drugs,she totally flips and runs off with James,leaving a note for Martin to follow so they can elope together. In persuading her to return his son Martin declares his supposed love for her,which does the trick. In reality he is at last opening up about his true feeling for Louisa and,with James safely returned,announces that he will not be going to London after all.
Martin is approaching the end of his stay in the village and Louisa needs his help, perhaps for the last time. Flu is making its rounds and she's quite busy at school with the cook away ill as well. Her mother is still recovering from her operation so she asks Martin to care for James for the day. He gladly agrees but when Mrs. Tichell the local chemist offers to care for him - she's in the surgery with her husband Clive who is just back from working on the oil rigs - Martin agrees. Unbeknown to anyone however, she has been self-medicating and is having a psychotic episode. She believes she and Martin are in love with one another and she runs off to their secret hideaway. A chase ensues but the end result is that Martin and Louisa have one last opportunity to try and make up their differences.
