Storyline

P.C. Joe Penhale's older brother Sam arrives and Martin employs him to paint the waiting room and surgery, but his lack of coordination leads the doctor to believe he is not well. Joe panics, believing the brothers have an hereditary disease but Sam's illness is actually caused by lead poisoning, as a result of his illegal side-line. Louisa gets nearer to renting a house in town, owned by an old hypochondriac whilst Martin is strangely touched when he sees her X-ray photo of the baby. Written by don @ minifie-1

Good Episode Involving Almost All Significant Characters
19 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

There are several conflicts in this episode. Al Large and Pauline are having issues because he is clingy and boring. Joe the cop is visited by his brother who is exhibiting possible symptoms of Huntington's disease. Joe, of course, thinks he is doomed. There is great angst. Louisa is looking for a place to live and starts working over an old guy who wants to go to a nursing home but the Doc won't approve it. She is also concerned with the results of an ultrasound. It also appears that the red-headed former paramour of Martin acts just like him. The last scene is worth the watching of this episode.
