Martha's day begins badly when she discovers that she is pregnant and gets worse when she finds that scheming Billy has her down to defend Alan Bradley,accused of raping ex-girlfriend Annie with Reader - who has just bedded Niamh,his junior - prosecuting. In court Reader plays to the gallery,Annie appears fragile and Bradley accuses Martha of being too soft on her. After she has warned Niamh about Reader's bed-hopping the junior gives her some information which tips the case in her favour though she still wonders who was telling the truth. Niamh gets bail for Gary Ross,whom Martha recently got off a robbery case but Martha doubts his innocence when part of the loot,a medal,appears in her locker. Kate and John,two other lawyers,feel that Billy's fondness for the drink makes him unsuitable for the job.
