Review :-


Ethan’s on edge around Cain as Debbie tries one last startling time to attract the curate’s attention.

Sadie pulls the rug out from beneath Chastity.

Katie is persuaded to side with the Kings.


Horrified by the events from the previous day, Ethan (Liam O’Brien) makes it clear to Debbie (Charley Webb) that nothing like the kiss can ever happen again. Debbie insists she cannot help her feelings for him and that they can’t pretend it didn’t happen.

Ethan is later mortified when he arrives home to find Debbie waiting for him. He begs her to leave but Debbie starts to undress and tells him she is older than he thinks and that she wants to sleep with him. How will Ethan cope with her amorous advances?

Meanwhile, Sadie (Patsy Kensit) marches into Pear Tree Cottage with builders in tow, telling Chas (Lucy Pargeter) they are going to start work on the house with or without her in it. Carl (Tom Lister) agrees to help his girlfriend and arrives with provisions as they join forces and refuse to leave.

Later that day, Sadie goes to the garage and asks Robert (Karl Davies) to steal her car so that she can claim on the insurance to get a new one. She promises Robert a worthwhile financial reward, but will he take Sadie up on her illegal offer?

ITV.COM A Moment Of Madness Wednesday 01.09.04
Disturbed after kissing Debbie Ethan takes refuge in the church, but he is not there long before Debbie joins him. Ethan tries to convince her that he has no feelings for her. He tells her that it was a moment of madness and that from now on they should not even be left alone together. Debbie is convinced that Ethan has feelings for him and begs him to admit that he loves her like she loves him. Ethan becomes angry and storms out of the church exasperated at being unable to impress the seriousness situation upon Debbie.
In need of a stiff drink to steady his nerves Ethan heads for the Woolpack and runs straight into Cain, who is propping up the bar. Cain asks Ethan where Debbie is. Ethan invents some story about her coming to a meeting earlier about the harvest festival. Muttering something about having some calls to make Ethan beats a hasty retreat, leaving Cain to mull over his sudden departure. Debbie waits for Ethan at the Vicarage and tells him she wants to talk.
Ethan says she can come in for five minutes and as he lets her in apologises Debbie for losing his temper with her earlier. Debbie picks up where she left off and continues to insist that Ethan has feelings for her. Seeing that she’s getting nowhere Debbie begins to undress and tells Ethan that she wants to sleep with him. Ethan loses his temper and tells Debbie that she is a child and he has no feelings for her whatsoever and has only ever pitied her. Debbie is devastated as Ethan throws her out.
Sadie busies herself on all fronts as she steps up her campaign to get Chas out of Pear Tree Cottage. Having had the power cut the day before, the water is cut while Katie is having a shower. Sadie then enlists Syd’s help in her offensive. Chas is livid when Sadie turns up with Syd and a team of removal men in tow to clear the contents of the cottage. After being lectured by his father about Chas and Pear Tree Cottage Carl comes to Chas’s rescue and buys her some supplies to keep her going in the empty and powerless cottage.
Sadie visits the garage and surprises Robert by suggesting that he steals her car so that she can claim on the insurance and buy herself a new one. Robert is not impressed. At lunch time he tells Katie that he would not be happy if she took any job offered by Sadie, but doesn’t tell her about the car theft scam. Refusing to take no for an answer Sadie returns later in the day and attempts to convince Robert that stealing her car is in their own best interests.
