Review :-

Does Edna survive a night in a ditch?

Zoe has an awkward meal as Scott’s date at Viv and Bob’s.

Cain puts the kibosh on Debbie’s travel ambitions.

Edna is found

Edna is found lying in a ditch following the hit and run

Will Edna survive her night in the ditch?..
as paramadics arrive, Shadrach takes £40 from Edna's purse

There is instant concern when Len (Peter Martin) finds Tootsie alone. Knowing that Edna (Shirley Stelfox) never goes anywhere without her beloved dog, he raises the alarm. Before long her friends are frantically searching for their neighbour.

When Tootsie begins barking ferociously, guilty Sam (James Hooton) runs off claiming he is feeling ill. The small dog leads them to Edna lying motionless in a ditch. As Jarvis dashes off to call an ambulance, shameless Shadrach (Andy Devine) steals £40 from the victim’s purse.

Paramedics and police arrive on the scene and after a broken wing mirror is found in the ditch, they confirm that it looks like a hit and run.

Later, in the hospital, a frightened Edna wakes up to the news that she has badly broken her hip.

Meanwhile, a melancholy Sam sits in the Dingles’ barn, distraught by what he has done and terrified he will go to prison. Will the dopey Dingle confess?

Elsewhere, Cain (Jeff Hordley) infuriates Debbie (Charley Webb) when he dismisses the idea of her going to France. However, her mood is lifted as Niamh (Tracey Moore) bids farewell to Ethan (Liam O’Brien) before returning to Africa.

ITV.COM Hit And Run Monday 21.06.04
When Len finds Tootsie alone on Edna’s doorstep he knows that something’s wrong and with help from Jarvis and a strangely reluctant Sam sets off to scour the village to find her. When they visit the graveyard Tootsie leads them to Edna and Sam makes himself scarce claiming that he is ill. Distraught Sam runs into Paddy and tells him that Edna is going to die. Jarvis joins them and uses Paddy’s mobile to call an ambulance. Meanwhile Shadrach sinks to news depths as he takes advantage of Jarvis’s absence to help himself to Edna's cash.
When the police arrive on the scene they find a broken wing mirror and say that it looks like they are dealing with a case of hit and run. Hearing what the police have said Sam sneaks off. He later asks Lisa whether whoever ran Edna over would have to go to prison. Lisa tells him they would and they would deserve to. Meanwhile Edna wakes up in hospital and learns that she has broken her hip and will have to have it replaced with an artificial one immediately. Back at the Dingles' Sam wrestles with his conscience.
Ethan runs into Cain in the shop and tells him about the trip to France. When Cain hears that there are assisted places available on the trip he takes exception to what he sees as an offer of charity. He threatens Ethan telling him that he’ll be after him if he hears another word about broadening Debbie’s horizons. Back at home Cain tells Debbie that she won’t be going to France and doesn’t need her horizons broadened. Debbie treats her father’s attitude with disdain.
The Hope family’s visit to Home Farm goes surprisingly well despite Viv kicking off proceedings with a few ill-advised remarks about baby Christopher looking poorly. With some flattery of Viv’s parenting skills Zoe defuses the situation. Zoe makes a major effort to get on with Viv and it seems that perhaps she is making a genuine commitment to being with Scott.
