Baby Noah causes a warming between Charity and Zoe.



Tom discovers the truth behind Paul’s death

After taking a break in at the yard, Tom (Ken Farringtron) lays into his head of security about the number of recent incidents. It transpires that the guard knows nothing about the call out on the night of Tom’s engagement party.

Tom smells a rat as he questions his sons and calls their bluff by telling them he has checked with the police and the break-in was never reported. Realising they have been rumbled, the brothers do their best to come up with a story.

Tom gets Carl (Tom Lister) on his own and demands the truth from his son. Under pressure, Carl eventually reveals the truth behind Paul’s accident, leaving Tom stunned.

Meanwhile, Sadie (Patsy Kensit) enjoys watching Charity (Emma Atkins) struggle with Noah (Alfie Mortimer) and takes delight in reminding her of her work duties.

Charity bumps into Zoe (Leah Bracknell) in the shop and offers to let her spend some time with Noah the following week. Zoe reluctantly offers her some advice on getting the baby off to sleep.

Elsewhere in the village, Shelly (Carolyn Pickles) is horrified when Viv (Deena Payne) questions her decision to give up work, hinting that she will now be living off Turner (Richard Thorp). Shelly confronts manipulative Steph (Lorraine Chase) about the rumours. Steph instantly denies any involvement.

Tom is angry when he hears there’s been a break-in at the yard. He speaks to his security boss and learns there was no break-in on the night of his engagement party. Tom goes over what happened that night with his sons and they stick to their story until he tells them to stop the amateur dramatics and tell him what’s really been going on. Matthew invents some cock and bull story about Chas holding Carl hostage in a kind of 'shotgun proposal' situation that prevented them getting to the engagement party on time. Tom is not convinced.
After he sees his sons arguing in the garden Tom speaks to Carl on his own. Carl reluctantly tells his dad how Paul died. Tom demands to know why Carl didn’t come to him? Carl tells him that he was scared to because he thought that if he told him he would be disowned. Tom is upset by Carl’s admission that he believes he has a low opinion of him and has less time for him than his brothers.
In her oh so subtle way Viv asks Shelly how she’s enjoying being a lady of leisure. Shelly is taken aback when she realises what Viv is insinuating. Viv assures her that this is not her opinion but just idle gossip, which she would never listen to of course. Recognising Steph's handiwork Shelly confronts her. Steph tells Shelly that she doesn’t know what she’s talking about and tells her that people in the village speak as they find. When Alan books a table at a restaurant Shelly claims to be feeling ill. Steph has obviously made her feel very uncomfortable about living off Alan.
When Charity bumps into Zoe in the shop and asks her for advice on getting Christopher to sleep, Zoe unhelpfully says that she will have to learn through trial and error like she had to. Outside the shop Charity tells Zoe that she can look after Christopher on Monday if she wants to. She tells her that Noah has lost his father but she doesn’t him to lose his aunt or his sister or his brother. Sadie continues to give Charity a hard time about the baby. Charity takes her down a peg or two by speculating on why her and Jimmy remain childless.
Now that she has got used to the idea of people helping her Edna tells Jarvis that he’s been a great help to her. She even agrees to let Sam walk Tootsie and tells Jarvis that she will let Sam do some gardening for her as well.
