Sam concocts a plan to make Alice stay but it all gets
out of hand.
Ethan convinces a doubtful Turner to visit his murdering daughter.
Bob concentrates on his ambitions.
Sam (James Hooton) is depressed about Alice’s (Ursula Holden
Gill) pending departure and as a cry for help he climbs up onto the
roof of the village hall. Sam insists he wants to injure himself in
the hope that it will encourage Alice to stay and look after him.
Pollard (Chris Chittell) becomes an unlikely source of help and tells
Sam (James Hooton) that he should be honest with Alice about how he
feels. Taking his advice on board, Sam later goes over to Alice and
kisses her. How will the timid young farmer react to Sam’s unexpected
display of affection?
Elsewhere, Ethan (Liam O’Brien) persists in trying to convince
Turner (Richard Thorp) that Steph (Lorraine Chase) is innocent and
eventually Turner backs down and agrees to visit his daughter the following
Meanwhile, Paul (Mathew Bose) tells Bob (Tony Audenshaw) that he should
look upon his single status as an opportunity to fulfil his dreams.
Taking his words on board Bob decides that he would like to become
a stand-up comic and suggests an open mic night at the Woolpack.
Up on the roof Weds, 7.00pm, 12th Jan
||Jack starts his second day of work for Andy and tells
Robert and the family what he’s doing. They aren’t
happy about it, as you can see for yourself, but they don’t
stop him. At the farm Andy tries to talk to Jack about his drink
with Libby the previous evening, but Jack is clearly there just
||After the promise of yesterday’s sightings, Turner sits
by the phone waiting for the police to call – you know what
they say about that Alan… Betty persuades him to go out and
have a walk, which he reluctantly agrees to.
||It’s the day of Alice’s auction, Sam wishes her luck
but then decides it will be a good idea to go and sit on the roof
of the village hall, don’t we all feel like that sometimes?
Dawn spots him, but when she speaks to him he tells her he’s
going to jump! She calls Marlon for help, maybe he can lure him
down with a hot pot?
||Ethan pays Turner a visit to apologise (yet again) for the press
interference, but believes the article will help locate Shelly.
The inspector turns up, but he has no news as the sightings didn’t
lead to anything.
||Meanwhile, back on the rooftop, Sam admits he doesn’t want
to kill himself, just to cause himself an injury so that Alice
will stay and look after him, like she did her father.
||Pollard emerges as the unlikely hero as he talks to Sam about
love and life and tells him he has to admit to Alice that he loves
her. It seems to work! Pollard makes Marlon and Dawn swear they
won’t tell anyone about his words of sentiment, but we still
||Paul speaks to Bob about his future. He tells Bob he should write
down all his unfulfilled dreams and find a new direction – he
quickly writes down ‘Popstar’ and ‘to own a holiday
home in Florida’, best keep going with that list, Bob
||Turner, meanwhile, opens up to Ethan saying he’ll go mad
if he doesn’t know where Shelly is. Ethan again tries to
persuade him to go and see Steph claiming she is innocent, ‘I
could tell from her eyes’, (thank goodness you’re not
on a jury Ethan). But might he have done enough to convince Turner
to see Steph?
||After the auction, Alice goes to see Sam. She informs him, and
the watching Emily, that she has sold the farm for a lot of money
and is really happy. Sam mumbles something, flaps his arms and
then plants a kiss on Alice’s lips! Go Sam! She’s shocked,
but Sam takes it as a rejection and runs out.
||Alice and Emily chase him, but he has hidden. Standing out in
the cold, Alice admits to Emily that she enjoyed the kiss, ‘it
was exciting’. Emily says he ran off because he thought she
didn’t like it, oh how wrong he is!
