Airing Wednesday, 21st January 2004 at 19:00 on ITV1

On the third day of the trial, cousins Chas and Charity chat during a break from proceedings. Assuming they are alone, Charity tells Chas that she came on to Zoe the previous night, telling her that she is sure Zoe still has feelings for her. Little do they know as they gossip, Zoe is in one of the cubicles and has heard everything. Once they have gone she emerges, furious.

Back in court, Zoe is called as a witness, Charity remains quietly confident but is horrified when Zoe sticks to her original statement, adamant that Charity murdered Chris.

Elsewhere in the village, Louise continues to be riled by Bernice’s presence in the village and her interfering ways within the Woolpack. Feeling insecure about her relationship with Ashley, she becomes increasingly irritated.

Meanwhile, the bishop questions Ashley about his relationship with Louise, asking whether he is going to marry her. Little does he know, Louise is in earshot and has heard every word. Uncomfortable, Ashley is forced to admit that she wouldn’t be an appropriate wife for a vicar just as Louise enters the room. Both men are mortified as they turn to face her.

Later, Louise and Ashley face facts about their relationship and agree that things are not going to work out long term. They agree to tell nosy neighbours that Louise ended the brief relationship, when really they both know it was the other way round.

ITV.COM Will Zoe Come Through? Wednesday 21.01.04
Charity and Debbie
Charity can't disguise her optimism; even Viv's comments about 'breakfast for a condemned woman' pass her by. To explain her buoyant mood to Debbie, she says Zoe may still feel for her. Debbie later passes the news on to Chas, but Charity's barrister doesn't want to hear anything that might compromise the trial. Viv is determined to get into court, but disguises from Pearl, Edna and Laurel's wardrobes all fail.
Ashley and the Bishop
Terry is quiet and pensive - he's worried that he ought to go to court rather than give a statement, but Dawn is adamant he's staying where he is. Louise visits him for a whinge about the ever-present Bernice, but when asked about the future lets on that she's not really in love with Ashley. The bishop, meanwhile, is concerned about the pageant of women going through vicarage, setting a bad example for Ashley's daughter, curate and flock. Louise walks in just as Ashley says he wouldn't marry someone so unsuitable, and when an embarrassed Ashley catches up with her, they decide it's best to part. He gallantly agrees to say that she dumped him.
Zoe takes the stand
Chas corners Charity in the court toilets about the full details of the visit to Zoe's. Charity says she did come on to Zoe - but that she's desperate and there's not much she wouldn't do. Unfortunately, Zoe overhears everything from one of the cubicles and last night's work is undone. Under oath, she pays tribute to her brother's strength of character - right up until he was murdered. When aghast Charity's barrister asks if Chris would have sought revenge for the affair, Zoe said the only revenge was divorce. She also denies she felt spurned by a former prostitute who was only after her brother's money, and who had to kill him before he divorced her. The court erupts, and to stop the two hurling abuse at eachother about the previous night's visit, the judge has to adjourn until the following day.
