The following review by Paul Berridge :

Eric Pollard was at his wheeling, dealing best as he tried to undermine the Dingles' attempts to finish the barn on time so that they incured penalties.

He provided lots of extra vodka for their party, to maximise their hangovers then removed some essential work tools to make doubly sure his plan succeeded
Zak and Cain were livid at Pollard for pulling such an under handed trick and decided to pay him a visit to dole out some Dingle justice.

The next day on May 3rd, Pollard is panic stricken to see them approaching and hides leaving Gloria to face the flack. Later that day he is stopped in his tracks when Zak and Cain suddenly appear from hiding and threaten to destroy all his stock unless he pays them the money he owes. They were enraged when Pollard called their bluff, but the smile was soon wiped off his face when they arrived at his factory wielding chain saws.
Their financial dispute was soon straightened out.


Since his release from prison, life has not got any easier for Jack Sugden. His former cell mate Harry Thompson, left a large pile of cash with Jack before escaping on the run. But since Jack learned that Harry had been returned to jail, and with bills to pay, he was torn over whether to use some of the illicit cash to tide him over in his hour of need.
Harry told Jack the money was from his family, but he's always suspected it was dodgy, and so refused to touch it. But Jack was in a dilemma because using the money would keep the farm going for a few more months.
Racked with confusion, Jack eventually confided in Seth Armstrong, who offered insightful advice. He didn't tell Jack to keep the money, but he said it had been sent to him because of all he's been through, and his family deserve it. That pushed Jack over the edge and he eventually decided to borrow some of the money on May 10th and pay off a few bills before he ended up in total dire straits.
When an intimate evening together ended in disaster, Marc Reynolds decides it is the end of the road for his relationship with girlfriend Donna Windsor. Deciding she is just too young for him after all, he turned his attention to an older woman - namely the local schoolteacher Bev Mansfield!
The dramas began when Marc and Donna got up close and personal at the Reynolds' house. On May 8th the pair were caught red-handed - and in their dressing gowns - by Donna's mum, Viv, and a huge showdown began, leaving Marc with the overriding feeling that going out with Donna was becoming more trouble than it was worth.
Iin the beginning Marc was just using Donna for regular sex, but she started to have much
stronger feelings for him, so he began to feel guilty. She wanted more of a romantic and passionate relationship but he wasn't too bothered about that side of things. Also, Viv hated him for leading her daughter astray.
Donna is underage and his mum is a police officer - which makes life very complicated.
A chat with his mate Jonny Bradley about the situation soon make Marc's mind up as to what he should do next - move his affections onto Bev.
Jonny suggested he should go for someone older and Marc was easily persuaded by him, although Jonny is only a few months older than Marc, he talks like he is a man of the world, so Marc believed him. Because Bev had been talking to Marc a lot
recently about him going back to college, Jonny persuaded him that she is interested, so, Marc decided to make his move, but soon realised how stupid he's been.
He ended up making a pass at Bev on May 10th, but she was having none of it, he was very embarrassed and knew he'd been an idiot.
However, news of Marc's actions soon traveled around the village when Donna found out.
Andy Sugden found himself drawn into Cain Dingle's cigarette scam in a bid to try and help Jack s ever-growing money problems. Robert discovered Andy selling cigarettes for Cain at school but swore to stay silent when Andy told him the reason for helping Cain. Jack was put in an awkward situation when Andy gave him the proceeds of his sales.
On May 11th Robert found Andy with more cigarettes from Cain but refused to help sell them. Robert then stumbled across Jack's hidden cash stash in the barn and assumed it was Andy's. Andy was shocked when Robert questioned him about his find and took the money off him, thinking it must be Cain's.
Later Andy handed the money over to Cain, who couldn't believe his luck
