After vying with Jennifer for customer attention, Sally learns that she is finally allowed to practice alone and resume her old job, so she is keen to see off her rival. Jennifer plans to leave Port Wenn, but a marriage proposal from Bert changes her mind. Hypochondriac Malcolm Rayner complains of a cough, which leads Martin, given that Malcolm was a builder, to consider his possible exposure to asbestos and to order X-rays of his lungs. Malcolm, believing he is dying, gets drunk and arrested by Joe, who panics, posting asbestos warnings around the village. When he impales himself on his staple gun, Martin rescues him, but his blood phobia makes him vomit. A bigger blow for the doctor is the arrival of his mother, Margaret, who coldly informs him that his father has died. Nor is she very good with baby James, though she seems anxious to make amends. Martin is wary. Written by
