Rodney attempts to buy his son’s affections
Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Jimmy persuades Zoe to let him and a reluctant Sadie
Katie worries about her housing arrangements.
Cain gets an idea about
Desperate to impress Jimmy (Nick Miles), Sadie (Patsy Kensit) offers
to look after Jean (Meg Pearson) in order to prove that she can be
maternal. Seeing straight through his wife, Jimmy tells her to drop
the act, but Sadie protests that at least she is trying.
Later on they visit the doctor who tells them that there is no reason
why they can’t start trying for a baby. Reconciled, the couple
head towards Pear Tree cottage to get started straight away.
Elsewhere, Paul (Mathew Bose) explains to Nicola (Nicola Wheeler)
that his split with Enzo (Daniel D’Alessandro) has left him in
a vulnerable financial position and seeing an opportunity Nicola explains
the problem to Rodney (Patrick Mower).
Later on, Paul finds an envelope containing a cheque from Rodney.
Paul is clearly touched by his father’s gesture but is Rodney
trying to buy his son’s affections?
Meanwhile, Jack (Clive Hornby) and Diane (Elizabeth Estensen) return
from their holiday but Jack is clearly not impressed to find that Katie
(Sammy Winward) has been staying at the cottage. He later has a change
of heart and agrees that Katie can live with them in the understanding
that she and Robert (Karl Davies) sleep in separate beds.
Maternal instincts Thurs, 7.00pm, 2nd Dec
Sadie offers to look after Jean for Zoe. Jimmy is sceptical
about his wife’s sudden interest in childcare and tells her that
because she’s spending the morning with someone else’s
kid it doesn’t mean she really wants one of her own. Sadie
tells Jimmy that she has an appointment with their doctor and she
would like him to come along. Jimmy is delighted when the doctor
tells them that there is no reason why they shouldn’t start
trying for a baby straightaway. The couple take the doctor at his
word and head home to bed.
Katie and Donna fall out over the preparations for the King's
party. Katie tells
Donna she’s only the caterer’s girlfriend and Donna replies that
Katie is just Sadie’s dogsbody. A delivery driver turns up with the wrong
coloured balloons and Katie realises that Chloe has been trying to scupper the
party preparations. Katie has a go at Chloe, telling her that she knows that
she’s been messing about with the orders behind her back. Tom walks in
just as Katie calls Chloe a bitch and gives her a good telling off.
Later, Sadie visits the hall once the work is finished and congratulates
Katie on a job well done. Seeing Chloe skulking about doing nothing
Sadie makes her
pick up rubbish, much to Katie’s amusement. Tom arrives and is pleased
to see Sadie because Jimmy has told him that they are trying for a child. As
Katie tells Sadie that she thinks she will make a great mum Robert arrives to
meet Katie and Sadie gives him a knowing look.
Paul tells Nicola that although he spent the evening with Rodney
things are still difficult between them. He confesses to his
sister that breaking up with
Enzo has left him with nothing. In the Woolpack Nicola reminds Rodney how much
he has helped her out over the years and suggests he should do the same for
Paul. Nicola returns home and finds an envelope addressed to Paul. Paul opens
the envelope to find a cheque for a large sum of money. Nicola is angry with
Rodney for trying to solve his problems by throwing money at them.
Diane and Jack return to the village and Jack is not amused to
find that Katie has been staying with Robert while they were
away. Diane tells Jack that she
would be happy for Katie to stay with them. Robert comes to see his father about
Katie moving in and Jack surprises him by saying that she can stay with them.
Cain hears Marlon and Donna discussing catering arrangements
for the King's party. He asks Marlon whether the party is going
to be a big do. Outside the Woolpack
Cain gives Pear Tree Cottage the once over. Back at Butler’s Farm he tells
Debbie to order the pair of boots she wants because his fortunes are about to
improve. When Daz returns from school Cain tells him not to make any plans for
the following evening.
