Ethan tries to get Turner to talk to the press about Shelly.
Andy gets flirty with some posh totty.
Zak (Steve Halliwell) spends the day looking for Debbie (Charley Webb)
after receiving a call from the school informing him that she has been
Zak eventually finds Debbie crying in her room and tries to comfort
her. After he leaves, Debbie pulls out a pregnancy test kit showing
positive and the teenager is devastated as she struggles to come to
terms with her discovery.
Elsewhere in the village, Ethan (Liam O’Brien) is interrogated
by a reporter who suggests that if Shelly is still alive she may come
forward if she reads about Turner’s (Richard Thorp) plight in
the newspaper. When the reporter later puts his suggestion to Turner
he is instantly asked to leave. But will Turner have a change of heart
in the hope of finding Shelly?
Over at Butlers Farm, Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) and Daz (Luke Tittensor)
are pleased when the posh totty on horseback reappear. The sisters,
Libby (Ty Glaser) and Tamsin (Jenny Gleave) enquire about renting stables.

The thin blue line Mon, 7.00pm, 10th Jan
||Ashley and Ethan argue about Ethan's treatment of
Turner the previous evening. Ashley tells him that he was out of
order when he suggested to Turner that Steph might not have killed
Shelly. With puffed cheeks and arms waving, Ashley tells the curate
to go and apologise to him.
||Ethan heads over to Turner’s where he says sorry, but tells
him once again that Steph was ‘particularly contrite’ when
he visited her and suggests Turner goes to see her. Turner is upset
and tells Ethan to leave, but when he does we see a pensive-looking
Turner - has he changed his mind?
||Meanwhile, Zak receives a call from the school telling him that
Debbie has not attended her classes today – or for the past
few weeks! With Charity in bed depressed and Cain away, it’s
up to Zak to sort – so he decides to go round to Andy’s,
with his fist at the ready!
||Believing Debbie is with Andy, Zak and Chas arrive with Zak ready
to punch the lights out of him. But Andy says he hasn’t seen
her. Although he's telling the truth, neither believe him, and
then Debbie walks through the door! Chas’s response to Andy? ‘You
stupid idiot.’ Nice!
||Debbie jumps to Andy’s defence and tells Zak and Chas that
he didn’t know she was going to see him. ‘Why can’t
you accept it’s over?’ Andy asks her. She explains
that she only wants to talk to him, but Zak drags her home.
||Back home, Zak tells Debbie she must go back to school and that
she shouldn’t see Andy again. She tells him she wouldn’t
want to anyway after the way he just treated her. Zak’s not
convinced and decides to go and see Jack Sugden.
||Scary-eyed Zak tells Jack what’s been going on, but since
he and Andy have barely spoken to each other Jack is confused as
to what he can actually do about it. Zak tells him just to have
a word, but Jack replies that ‘things are just too difficult
||Zak's wild look obviously made an impression on Jack for he decides
to talk to Diane. The good samaritan tells him to go round and
see Andy, even if he doesn’t want to. She says by warning
Andy off Debbie he could be saving his life from the Dingles -
she could be right!
||Meanwhile, in the shop, a reporter overhears Viv gossiping (no
surprise there then) about Steph. He says he’d like to interview
Turner and asks for his address, but Ethan overhears and steps
in to tell him not to bother. Viv can't resist the urge though
and tells him the address anyway, but Ethan says the reporter should
speak to him instead.
|| Ethan tells the reporter that he doesn’t think Steph killed
Shelly, but he refuses to tell him what she said to him. The reporter
says he can help by publicising Shelly’s disappearance in
the press in the hope that she may come forward. He’s convinced
Ethan, but will Turner be turned?
||The two head over to Turner’s to discuss the idea, but
Turner’s enraged. Ethan, sounding like a broken record, again
tells him to visit Steph to see what she has to say. But this man
is not for turning and he asks them to leave. Clearly perturbed,
he asks Betty if he is being unreasonable.
||Zak talks to Debbie in her room and tells her she’s ‘too
bright and clever to end up with nothing’. When Zak leaves
all becomes clear – crystal clear blue in fact – what
is bothering Debbie when she pulls out a pregnancy test to reveal
a positive blue line. Seems Zak's little speech was all for nothing
