Review :-

Sadie and Jimmy visit the doctor and it seems the doctor knows something Jimmy doesn’t.

The Dingles persuade Alan to take a little adventure.

Matthew closes in on Siobhan.




Jimmy is furious that Sadie has deceived him about wanting children

Dr Anders (Richard Avery) feels uncomfortable when Jimmy (Nick Miles) and Sadie (Patsy Kensit) pay him a visit, aware that Sadie is not being honest with her husband.

When the couple return home, Sadie is forced to admit that she doesn’t want a baby and as Jimmy pushes further she confesses that she never stopped having her contraceptive injections. Jimmy is beside himself with anger at his wife’s betrayal.

At the Woolpack, Marlon (Mark Charnock) and Zak (Steve Halliwell) plan a fishing trip in the hope that it will put a smile on Turner’s (Richard Thorp) face. Despite already agreeing to have dinner with Steph (Lorraine Chase) the following day, Turner happily accepts their offer and they make plans for the outing.

Meanwhile, Carl (Tom Lister) is alarmed when he hears of Siobhan’s (Abigail Fisher) pregnancy. The news opens up old wounds and unable to live with the guilt any longer he confesses to Chas (Lucy Pargeter) that he was responsible for Paul’s death. How will Chas react to his confession?

ITV.COM The Family Man Monday 06.09.04
At the doctor’s Jimmy is determined to solve the riddle of why and he and Sadie remain childless. He is disgruntled when the doctor tells them to carry on as they are. As the couple leave the doctor asks to have a word alone with Sadie and angrily tells her it’s time to tell her husband the truth.
Back at Home Farm Jimmy tells Sadie that they will have a child whatever it takes. Sadie stuns Jimmy by telling him bluntly that she doesn’t want a child. As Jimmy reels from Sadie’s bombshell she confesses that she hasn’t stopped having her contraceptive injections. Jimmy storms out.
Carl is disturbed when Matthew boasts that he is helping Siobhan out financially and assures Carl that he wouldn’t stoop so low as to rip of a pregnant widow. The news that Siobhan is pregnant brings all of Carl’s guilt about Paul’s death flooding back. When Carl snaps at Chas she demands to know what’s been bothering him. Carl tells her that he killed Paul. Chas is stunned but comforts Carl.
Meanwhile, Chloe continues to ingratiate herself with Carl by offering to cook dinner for the three of them. While Chloe prepares dinner Chas warns her that if she gets too matey with Carl she will get a smack. At dinner Chloe spills a glass of wine over Chas, who reacts angrily. Carl tells her to calm down. Chloe storms off and listens on the staircase as Carl tells Chas not to worry because Chloe will be gone soon. Chloe’s face is full of hatred.
Wanting to repay Alan for giving him cash to back a winner Zak decides a fishing trip is the answer. He tells Marlon Alan will provide the booze while Marlon will supply the food. Zak assures Marlon that his contribution will be his organisational expertise. When Shadrach overhears them talking he offers to provide the booze for the trip. In the Woolpack they find Alan in his cups and wait for their moment to ask him to come on the trip. When Steph comes in and harasses her dad Alan escapes to the bar and the Dingles take their chance.
