Esh, I'm leaving in a minute if you want that lift.
Oh, morning. Didn't see you there.
You all right?
You look a bit out of it.
How are you feeling?
Like I'm an idiot.
Don't beat yourself up. Needle sticks happen.
It's just a risk of the job.
I so need another two hours' sleep.
Got a training day today. Like a hole in the head.
Wish I had the day off.
Want to swap?
Sorry. Stupid comment.
When can you come back?
When the blood tests are in.
It's just a formality.
The odds of a needle stick infection are minimal, so...
Yeah. I just wish I hadn't sucked my finger.
You sucked your finger? Why?
Heat of the moment thing?
Yeah. Of course. You don't know how you're going to react, do you?
Sorry, Emma. I didn't mean to upset you or anything.
Right, well, I've got to go,
so, Esh, lift, or...?
-I'll catch the next train. See you later.
I'm like a black hole.
What does that mean?
It means I destroy everything good in my life.
I deserve whatever I've got coming from that girl.
-You've got nothing coming from her.
-You don't know that.
I know you've been vaccinated against Hep B
and, if India has Malaria, we've caught it early.
-And what if she has HIV? Or Hep C?
What makes you think she's got HIV?
She's a drugs mule.
Yes, but we didn't see any signs of drug use, did she?
Good, so cheer up,
otherwise you're going to drag me into your black hole.
Oh, I'm sorry. I just feel so stupid.
It wasn't stupid. It was a stupid moment.
Now move on.
You've got the day off. Do something with it.
You can clear out the spare room for a start. It's a disgrace.
It's not that bad.
All right, I'll sort it.
Good. Give me a hug. I've got to go.
Also, you might want to take a long bath.
You smell a bit musty.
Just saying it like it is.
Go on - get out.
Good. I'm gone. Keep smiling.
Val, it's me.
Oh, hi, Ayesha.
Listen, I'm supposed to be on a training course this morning but something's come up.
-Do you reckon you can bump me to the afternoon session?
-Well, I'll try.
I'm not actually at my computer at the moment, but that shouldn't be a problem.
Oh! I'm so sorry I bopped you with my broom!
No, not you, Ayesha. Daniel. Sorry.
Honestly, I've got the coordination of a baby giraffe on ice.
Yeah. Leave it with me, Ayesha.
Valerie Pitman. Come back to bed.
Donald Slater? What the heck are you doing in there?
Where are your trousers?
No, no, no. Don't fall asleep.
Come on. You can't do that.
You can't sleep in our bin.
Look, I'm not leaving you in there, so grab the broom.
Grab... OK. Now take my hand.
OK. Here we go.
What? No! I've just arrived.
Don't wasting any time, do you?
Look, help me out.
I'm not sure that I want to.
I swear, if you don't get me out of here right now...
Do you think Miss Pitman taking the minutes is really working?
Well, I think if she dials down the comedy a touch, then yes, I do.
Right, well, I will have a word with her about her interjections.
OK. So what are we talking about today?
Well, I just wanted to touch base, really, regarding the staff.
I just wanted to make sure that everything is ticking along.
How is Dr Carmichael getting on in her course?
-I don't think she's that enthralled with it.
Really? Why not?
Well, Zara going on a financial course, it's like teaching your grandmother to suck eggs.
But, for the benefit of the practice, she'll stick it out.
Nurse Lee is also on a course.
Updated injection techniques and immunisation training.
Emma could have done with that yesterday.
Yeah. I hope that Dr Reid is all right.
This whole situation has really shaken her.
Ayesha Lee. The nurse from the campus yesterday.
What are you doing here?
I came to see you.
We need to talk.
I'd say overall we're in good shape.
-Strong team at the moment.
What about him?
Well, losing a parent - it is a momentous thing.
I spoke to him last week.
Oh, you did? How was he?
Bruised, but he seemed to be processing everything quite normally.
That is good to hear.
I have to confess, after offering my condolences,
I have kept my distance.
Not like you.
I did not want to say the wrong thing.
As you know, Dr Haskey and I do not see eye-to-eye.
I did not want him interpreting my sympathy as anything that it was not.
It is a very sensitive time for him.
I wouldn't worry unnecessarily, Mrs Tembe.
But I do.
My concern is that Dr Haskey would confide in Dr Clay.
Dr Clay is not here.
-Who does Dr Haskey talk to? He needs someone.
I've already spoken to him.
I think it would really help if you spoke to him again.
That's not the actual reason for this meeting, is it?
Getting me to speak to Al again?
I'll give it a go.
We've all been there.
This is how you're supposed to look after a stag do.
Whoever shaved his 'tache really messed up his chin.
Hope the wedding isn't today.
Well, it can't be. He's already married.
You know him?
Hm. Donald Slater.
He used to chair the patient group
but he stopped when he won the lottery.
He won the lottery and he gave up the patient group?
The man's insane.
What did he do with all his money?
Well, he bought his local pub and he married the barmaid.
I knew I recognised him.
"The Luckiest Person In The World Ever!"
That was the headline in the local paper.
Oh, wow! Someone is living the dream.
I salute you, sir. I'll leave him with you.
Where are you going?
I'm going to go and see my real patients -
the ones I'm paid to see.
What am I supposed to do with him?
I don't know. Ayesha's not in. Let him sleep it off.
You can't leave me alone with him!
I think I can.
HE BREAKS WIND
Dr Reid helped you yesterday.
Today she's terrified that she's caught something from you.
It wasn't my fault she stuck herself!
I didn't say it was. I said she was scared.
I'm scared, too.
Last night a surgical team removed a condom of heroin from your stomach.
How do you know that? You're not supposed to know that.
I trained here. I know people.
What I need to know now is was the heroin
for personal use or was it business?
What's it got to do with you?
If it's personal, then you're a user,
which puts you at a higher risk.
That then puts my friend Dr Reid at a higher risk.
That's what it's got to do with me.
I'm not a user!
You say that.
And we didn't find any track marks,
but that doesn't mean they're not hidden, does it?
I've never injected anything in my life. I wouldn't.
Tell Dr Reid not to worry. I don't have HIV.
OK. That's all I need.
You should get some rest.
The police are coming to interview you.
What, here? Now?
The hospital reported what they found.
I didn't think they were allowed to.
You didn't give them much choice.
Hi. What's up?
Oh, I just thought I'd check in.
Oh! I haven't had one of those since I was a kid.
I used to love these!
Yeah. Um, Daniel...
What do you want?
I just thought I'd stick my head in and see how you're doing.
See how I'm doing?
You know you're repeating everything I say?
That's because I don't know what you want.
Oh, OK, so, your... Your mother's gone home since we spoke last.
I'm actually pretty busy at the moment.
I don't mean to pry. I just want to make sure you're OK, that's all.
Well, I am OK, so you can just leave me alone.
Daniel, last time we spoke, my father had just died.
I was in a really rough place.
I'm no longer in that rough place.
I feel absolutely fine.
This, however, this is making me feel...
Yeah, it's making me feel awkward, too.
So, I'll go.
I'm glad you feel better, though.
OK. And I'm glad that you're glad.
Would you mind closing my door on the...?
I owe money...a lot.
Couldn't someone help you out? Your parents?
I can't ask them.
I haven't talked to them for a while.
And if my mum knew half of what was happening...
Surely she'd want to know.
It's my problem. I'll sort it.
Is it why you went to Thailand?
It was Caz's idea.
She said it was an opportunity to start a clean sheet.
She'd been approached by friends who had contacts.
A one-off trip to Thailand didn't sound so bad.
I was desperate.
At first it was an adventure,
like we were normal uni students on a gap year with our ruck sacks.
We hiked, we went to the ruins at Sukhothai.
It was fun.
But then we had to meet our contact in a hotel room.
Swallowing the condoms was awful - it made me gag.
And then we were driven to the airport.
I was terrified walking through Customs.
When we got back, we were given laxatives to help pass them.
It was horrible.
Fishing them out of the toilet...
..and then one didn't come.
I thought I was going to die.
I wish I had.
You don't mean that.
I do. I'm in a worse position than I was before.
Everything you've just told me, you need to tell the police.
They said they would kill us.
How about next Thursday? Early afternoon?
Yeah. Yeah. Shall we say 1.40?
Great. Thanks, Mr Drummond.
Leave them there.
Actually, would you like to come with me?
Yeah, that's great. You're all booked in.
Actually, yes, bye. Right, we'll see you then.
Thanks, Mr Drummond.
No, actually, Mrs Tembe. I can show him where to put...
And who is this, Miss Pitman?
That...that-that is Mr Slater, a local businessman.
Oh! A businessman?
Well, he runs his own pub.
We used to work together at the PCT but then he won the lottery and...
So what is Mr Slater doing here, Miss Pitman?
I found him...in the bin.
"In the bin".
Yeah. The big one - outside. And he cut his chin,
so Al just patched him up and now he's sleeping it off.
-And what has happened to his trousers?
-I don't know.
-And the other half of his moustache?
-I don't know that either.
And why does he smell of alcohol and...?
HE BREAKS WIND
Yeah, he keeps doing that.
I was going to come in and wake him up and tell him to go home.
Yes, well, I think that is a very good course of action to take.
Yeah. I'll do it now.
HE BREAKS WIND
You don't want to owe these people. You're nothing to them.
You tell the police everything and get Caz to do the same.
Because, if you don't, you'll end up in a hell that you will never get out of.
How do you know?
I've seen it. My mum.
She'll do anything to get hold of money.
Do you get what I'm saying?
I'm not saying you would.
No. I mean, I won't do it again.
There's no way I'm going back on the game.
You've been on the game?
I had no choice.
Listen. Your clean slate's gone, but you're still young.
You can and will get over this.
You still have a choice - take it.
You have a choice.
No. Stop, stop.
I've made a decision.
Do you have any idea where my trousers are?
They weren't in the bin.
I can't believe they left me in a wheelie bin!
So whose bachelor party was it?
Nobody's. It was my unbachelor party. I was celebrating my divorce.
Oh, I'm sorry.
No sympathy. I'm fine. In fact, I'm more than fine.
It turned out Dolores was a right cow,
doing the dirty with one of me regulars.
I barred him and divorced her.
I've still got the pub, though.
Look at me - the luckiest man in the world.
Donald, you're an absolute mess. No trousers. Half a moustache.
Your face is all cut up.
Your friends really stitched you up.
-No, I did this.
They bet me I wouldn't shave it off. A new beginning.
I cut myself. Cack-handed fool.
They thought it was hysterical, insisted I go out half-shorn.
Must have started bleeding again.
What are you doing next week?
What do you mean?
I'm going on an around-the-world cruise for my un-honeymoon.
Do you fancy it?
Surely you've got some friends you can go with?
I haven't got friends. I've got regulars.
So what d'you say?
No, you're all right. Look, I'll go and call you a taxi.
Hey, a cup a tea or coffee wouldn't go amiss -
some paracetamols neither. My head's killing.
Soph, it's Ayesha. How are you, sweets?
Good, listen, are you in work today?
I need to call in a really big favour.
Donald, you're going to get me into so much trouble!
Donald. There you are. You fell back to sleep again.
I forgive you.
I love you, Dolores. Don't go.
I don't want to be on my own again. Please, don't leave me.
Donald, I'm not Dolores.
Yes, that's right.
Come on, you silly thing. Let's get you sat up.
There we go, that's better.
Where am I?
You're at the Mill.
You really did have a dream, didn't you?
Here you go, drink this.
Donald! Are you all right?
My arm's gone numb again, like last night. Let me help.
No, no, no - you stay there.
Oh, Donald. No! Donald!
Valerie, for goodness sake, can you not just get a room?!
Can you just get him off me?! Something's wrong!
OK. Donald? Donald, it's Dr Haskey. Can you hear me?
Can you respond, Donald?
Well, he just collapsed. He said his arm had gone numb.
Donald, can you show me your teeth, mate?
-Right, it's a stroke.
-We need an ambulance.
It's OK, Donald, I'm here. I'm with you, mate.
Everything's going to be all right. OK?
Do you think he'll be all right?
Well, if it was a stroke,
he is going to need a lot of rehabilitation.
Does he have family?
I don't think so.
I think he was lonely.
Well, thank goodness you were here. Al was here in seconds, too.
So were you.
He was lucky.
For helping Donald.
I didn't do anything.
Are you in there?
Emma, can you hear me?
Emma, open the door. Emma, please open the door.
I... I fell asleep in the bath.
The water got cold.
You've been drinking.
Right, well, come on. Get dressed.
We're going out.
I thought you had a training thing.
I've moved it to this afternoon.
I went to see India at the hospital.
She's not a drug user, but she was a prostitute.
It puts her at higher risk of HIV.
See? Black hole.
Have you seen Dr Haskey? He has two patients waiting in reception
and he has disappeared.
What is he doing? Smoking?
No, I think he's just taking a moment.
Oh, right. Yes, of course.
I'll see his patients.
Thank you, Dr Granger.
Can I talk to her?
It's best not to. She's nervous enough already.
She could lose her job.
How do you know her?
We trained here together and I copped off with her brother.
Big mistake. Total dork.
Is that her?
Yeah. Wait here.
Where are all my patients?
Yeah. Daniel saw them.
He said he spoke to you about it.
He said you needed a break and you were happy for him to take them.
Was that not right?
No, that's... That's right.
I'm back now.
KNOCK ON DOOR
Malaria - negative. Hep B - immune. HIV - negative.
It's all good news.
Yeah, but you can't get a definitive result for HIV for three months.
-Yeah, well, I had a theory about that.
India was certain she didn't have HIV,
so certain that I asked Sophie to check her out on the system.
Look. Four months ago she had a negative HIV test,
after she'd finished being on the game.
She had another one four weeks ago, also negative.
No exposure risks since.
And today's test's negative.
Smile, babe. You're in the clear.
As good as.
You are wasted being a waitress.
Why don't you get up on here and give our boys a little demo?
Any more drinks?
Just the quick bump and grind...
Sounds like it's working out really well for you at the Mill.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's great.
