After Leanne recognised Colin's voice last week, he has been
placed in custody thanks to Tom who alerted the police. It is Leanne's birthday
and Tom has organised a surprise party for her. Matt has had special t-shirts made
for everyone which have their names on, he tells Shaun it's so Leanne knows who
Claire watches Alex getting dressed for the party. She makes Alex feel uncomfortable
when she zips up her dress for her.
Leanne arrives at the party and is delighted that all her friends are there for
her. Claire asks Alex to dance with her but Alex says no and dances with Tom instead.
She tells Tom that she thinks Claire has 'a bit of a thing' for her as she has
been acting strangely towards her. Tom tells Alex he thinks she's reading too
much into it as Claire fancies men!
Colin arrives at the party with his wife Sally in tow. Leanne is visibly shaken
and Matt is instantly at her side. He tells Shaun to get Colin out of the pub.
Colin tells Leanne he is sorry for her troubles but says he did not attack her.
Colin leaves the pub whilst Tom comforts Leanne.
Tom and Leanne return home and call out DC Hopkins. He tells Leanne her
condition makes her an unreliable witness. He also tells her that Sally has told
the police that Colin was with her the whole time during the alleged attack.
Leanne is adamant Sally is lying, but DC Hopkins doesn't seem convinced.
Kate tells Will she has been thinking about what he said to her at the charity
ball. He tells he was just tired - he's fine now. She tells him she thinks he
should dissolve The Beeches partnership, buy out Tom and Alex and set up on his
own. After he has set up he can get some younger doctors in and then there will
be less work for him. Will is not convinced that dumping Tom and Alex is the right
thing to do. Kate says he cried on her shoulder and she is now offering him a
way out - what else is he going to do - keep taking the Prozac?
Tom take Sally's file to DC Hopkins. He tells him that 8 years ago Sally was treated
for a broken rib, internal bleeding and she also lost her baby. He says maybe
Colin beat her up and maybe her alibi is a lie because she is scared of him. DC
Hopkins tells him to stay out of it.
Claire asks Alex if she wants to come to a yoga class with her. Alex says no -
she and Tom are cooking dinner for Leanne because she's still upset.
CLAIRE: How much sympathy can she squeeze out of this?
Kate visits James to see if he's ok. He asks her how Will is and asks if he is
going to split The Beeches partnership. Kate says Will is not too taken with the
idea so she's going to give him a few days. James tells her he has heard rumours
about The Beeches....
Kate storms around to The Beeches and asks Tom if he showed a patients records
to the police. He admits he has. Kate tells him that Sally has made an official
complaint to the GMC. Tom says he has a duty to Leanne and his friends,
including Kate, to stop Colin before he attacks again. Kate says he also has a
duty to his partners including Will, who doesn't need this hassle at the moment.
Alex tells Will and Kate that the police wouldn't use Tom's information anyway.
Will says it has to stop here, Tom has to let the police do their job. Alex
tells Will he can tell Tom that as she is not playing piggy in the middle. Kate
asks Will if the hassle at The Beeches is really worth it.
Whilst driving, Tom hears a report on the radio that says another girl has been viciously
attacked. He rushes home to find Leanne next to a bottle of pills. She hasn't
taken any but tells him she doesn't know what to do.
Tom goes through the surgery waste bags. He calls in DC Hopkins and hands the
bloodstained bandage that Colin had covered his hand in when he went to see Tom
last week. DC Hopkins admits the victim was cut, Tom tells him to check the
bandage for her DNA.
Colin and Sally arrive at The Black Swan for a drink. Tom slips a liquid into
Colin's drink and is seen by Matt. Colin soon becomes agitated and Tom provokes
him by staring at him. Tom tells Colin he knows he attacked Leanne and asks him
if he knows what happens to rapists in prison. Colin attacks Tom and hits him
with a snooker cue. Tom tells Matt to call the police. Colin is taken away and
Tom authorises that he is sectioned.
Matt tells Tom that he saw him put something in Colin's drink. Tom tells Matt he
has got Colin off the streets and that's all that matters. Matt tells Tom he
could be struck off for what he has done. Tom replies how - only he and Matt
know about it.
Claire confronts Alex and says she thinks Alex has been avoiding her. Claire
says she only came to Cardale because of Alex and now never sees her. Alex tells
her not to be silly, they are mates, nothing's changed.
CLAIRE: I feel like a boyfriend being given the brush off
Will asks Tom and Matt what happened the previous night with Colin. Tom explains
that he had to section Colin. Will says he hopes he was sure that Colin needed
to be sectioned and that it wasn't because of Tom's vendetta against him. Tom
walks out and Will asks Matt what happened. Matt stands by Tom and Will says he
should be clear where his loyalties lie as he's in his remedial year.
Kate goes back to see James. He asks her why she is here. She says she has come
to see how he is. He says no, she did that yesterday. Kate says she has come to
tell him that Will still doesn't want to break up The Beeches. James kisses Kate
but she doesn't respond except to say that's not why she came to see him. James
apologises and says kissing her was very rude of him.
KATE: I did not come here for that
DC Hopkins tells Tom that the DNA tests came back negative. The blood of the
victim was not on Colin's bandage. He also says that Colin's lawyers are pushing
for him to be released from hospital.
Will tells Claire abut Kate's idea for The Beeches. Claire says that the idea is
fine in theory but it's not very practical. Will apologises for involving Claire
as he knows she and Alex are friends. Claire says that actually she and Alex are
not getting on too well at the moment as Alex feels like she can walk all over Claire.
She tells him that if it comes to it her loyalties will lie with The Beeches.
Tom tells Leanne that he could be arrested for what he did to Colin. He says he
doesn't regret it but needs to know she is sure that Colin attacked her. She
says she knows he did.
Alex confronts Claire about the helicopter crash and says she can't ignore what
happened anymore. She says she knows Claire killed the marine. Claire explains
that she was helping him out of is pain and misery, Alex says she had not right
to do that and tells Claire to pack her bags and get out.
ALEX: You took his choice away - you played God
Tom visits Sally at home and takes Leanne with him. They tell her she must tell
he truth and tell the police that Colin wasn't with her on the night Leanne was
attacked. At which point Colin arrives and drags Tom outside. He pushes him to
the floor and continues to kick him on the ground. Leanne jumps on Colin who in turn
pushes her up against the wall. Sally intervenes and hits Colin whilst Leanne
calls the police.
The trivial case of two bickering patients incenses Will who loses his temper
and tells them to get out of the surgery. Will returns home to Kate and tells
her he thinks they should break of The Beeches partnership.
The police arrive and arrest Colin. DC Hopkins tells Tom he doesn't know what he
did to Colin but knows he did something, he says he should watch his step. Tom
tells Leanne it is all over now.
