The Dingles help Andy out with a farm scam and he resolves to start breaking some rules.

Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) begins to have doubts about the cattle scam, but with the help of Cain (Jeff Hordley), Zak (Steve Halliwell) and Shadrach (Andy Devine) he arranges for a buyer to inspect the livestock.

Katie becomes concerned about Andy's new friends.  However he tells her it is none of her business what he does

The customer soon becomes suspicious and threatens to contact the police. However, with some quick talking Andy manages to make a deal with him and pockets a large wad of cash. Zak, Cain and Shadrach are impressed and declare him an honorary Dingle for pulling off the scam.

Terry (Billy Hartman) prepares for the custody hearing and tells a sympathetic Ashley (John Middleton) that he wants TJ (Alfie Mortimer) to know that he fought for him, even if it is all a waste of time.

Meanwhile, Bob (Tony Audenshaw) reluctantly tells Viv (Deena Payne) about Dawn’s (Julia Mallam) plans to move to Spain, but is worried when she insists they must warn Terry. Bob swears her to silence, but will Viv be able to keep her mouth shut?

Over at the factory, Pollard (Chris Chittell) begins to worry about Steph’s (Lorraine Chase) business plan as the workers struggle to make the fake handbags. He flatly refuses when Steph asks for time off to collect her dad and she is later upset when Turner (Richard Thorp) calls to talk to Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy), hanging up on Steph as she steals the phone.

ITV.COM A Master Criminal Tuesday 03.08.04
Andy gets cold feet about the cattle clocking scam but Zak and Cain set the wheels in motion by procuring the ear tags they need from Paddy who turns a blind eye. When the buyer turns up he spots the scam immediately and threatens Andy with the police. Thinking on his feet Andy persuades him to buy the cattle anyway. Andy waves a huge wadge of cash at the Dingles and they head off to the Woolpack. After a heavy session Katie again lectures Andy on the company heís keeping. Andy tells her heís happier than heís ever been.
Itís a bad day for Steph. At the factory the work force fail to get to grips with the sewing machines and by the end of the day they have managed to produce a grand total of zero handbags. Worried that Alan might succeed in his quest to find Shelly Steph tells Eric that she wants to take time off to find him. Eric tells her a holiday is out of the question until she sorts out the mess at the factory. Later in the Woolpack she overhears Laurel on the phone to Alan and grabs her mobile from her. As soon as he hears Steph Alan hangs up.
Dawn is in a foul mood and longs to be back in Spain. At the factory she puts her foot in it when she tells Lisa that she doesnít want to end up stuck there for the rest of her life. Lisa tells her to count her blessings rather than her curses for a change. Bob tells her to think carefully about her decision to go back to Spain. Viv notices their heated exchange and pursues Bob to the pub to find out whatís going on. Reluctantly Bob puts Viv in the picture but first asks her to keep what heís got to tell her a secret. Vivís initial reaction is that Terry must be told.
After shifting Ednaís furniture about for her Jarvis feels pain in his back. When he goes to switch on the radio in his workshop he puts his back out. Edna come out to complain about his noisy radio and finds him slumped in chair unable to move. The doctor is called and tells Jarvis he needs bed rest and painkillers. Jarvis and Edna are forced to spend 24 hours together. When Edna drops Jarvisís painkillers on the floor and neither of them can reach them they both see the black humour in their predicament.
