How have you been?
You, erm, tried to see me at the start of the week? I tried to call you back.
I know. I had a bad day on Monday.
But I got over it.
Yeah. I've been working on this essay that I'm loving.
I've got a tutorial on the subject this afternoon,
I was hanging out with my friends at the Christian Union...
I've been too busy to feel bad again.
That's the trick, right? Keep yourself busy?
Don't think about it...
Yeah, as long as you're not just, erm, putting things off...
I think maybe seeing a counsellor might help.
Er, I don't know.
I think I'd just end up sounding like a victim.
I don't want to waste their time by acting like a girl who'd really been violated.
Really been violated?
Yeah, like on a dark street, by a stranger.
Look, you gave your consent but he deceived you to get the photo. That's a classic power thing.
I don't know. I think, if I get whiny about it, and keep going over it,
then I won't be able to move on.
And I'm moving on.
OK, right, well, as long as you are moving on.
But if you have any doubts, the sooner you get help, the better.
I, erm, I'm only trying to help but I know a really good counsellor.
She's highly recommended.
I'll think about it.
I've got to go.
Adam, I know you're in there.
Adam, I know you don't want to go, but you need to, you...
you need to find out what your options are.
I'm going to be there with you.
I'll go and wait for you in the kitchen.
So, well, what do you think?
Well, it's what you think that's important.
Well, obviously, I know what I think.
Yes, but I want to know.
Well, I think it is a...a good idea.
Yes, it is an idea.
-Well, I better get back.
-Yeah, well, wait!
From tiny acorns...
..mighty oak trees grow.
And these are our acorns.
You do know it doesn't work like that, don't you?
It's trees first that make paper, it's not paper that grows into...
But...a library, Miss Pitman,
a lending library,
run from our reception desk,
for our patients and the public.
So many libraries are closing across the country,
and it is important that we do our bit.
Our patients need their brains and their souls stimulated,
not just their bodies.
A few books to start, but it is a beginning.
I don't think he's ready for this.
Because I've just knocked on, and he won't answer.
-Didn't you go in?
It's his space. He needs his privacy.
He doesn't want to live with the idea of
one of us bursting in at any second.
I sort of meant in case there was something wrong.
OK, I'm ready to go.
But do I have some time for some breakfast?
Guess who made it through the group stage!
I might have a shot at the nationals.
Well, hang on, you're going to have to up your game, mate.
An oriental girl, a lecturer...
I mean, I swear, I don't know what's worse, the pensioner or the lecturer.
Right, this isn't for the faint-hearted, mate.
OK, this is to sort the men from the boys.
If it was easy, any Tom, Dick or Joey would be doing it.
Guess who's made it past group stage?
Right, so basically, today,
if you search Letherbridge University, this is what you get.
Even if you're more specific, and you search
"Letherbridge University league tables," this is still the first hit.
Will this ever end?
Hmm, once it's on the internet, it's there forever.
But this is just the number of people hitting this page today.
Tomorrow it will be something else.
Or someone else. Does Rosie know it's flared up again?
I saw her earlier. She didn't seem to.
PHONE RINGS AGAIN
That's great, we'll see you next week.
OK, if you just take a seat. Thank you.
Morning. Prescription? Could I see some ID, please?
You are not very fond of the lending library?
I think it's a terrible idea.
And I'm pretty sure Karen will back me up on that.
Obviously, we have so much spare time to take on
a job we're not even trained to do(!)
Do you remember how much spare time you had when you were behind this desk?
If I wanted to be a librarian, I'd have gone to...
library school, or whatever.
That's great. Thank you.
Didn't you ever play libraries when you were a child?
You know, rubber stamp, index cards?
Well, really, there is nothing to it.
Oh, well, I'm sure if we asked a real librarian,
they would be really offended by you saying there's nothing to it.
Well, they could say there's nothing to being a GP's receptionist.
Didn't we all do that as kids?!
Nothing to do all day long but play at receptionist. Easy-peasy.
Well, they'd be wrong. Wouldn't they?!
Dr Carter can tell you all about the benefits.
It is calming, it is relaxing,
and it is very good for high blood pressure.
Well, I'll tell you what's bad for our blood pressure - seeing our workload expand.
I know what will happen, there will be patients faffing,
they'll be like, "I'm not sure about this book, what about this one,
"what's the story, what's it about?
"Oh, I don't like scary stories, is there anything less scary?
"Oh, there was this book I really fancied...it began with a B or a D, have you got it?"
There'll be people not being booked in and missing appointments
because we're not doing our actual jobs!
You know, the thing you pay us to do.
And then we'll get it in the neck from patients and the doctors.
And from you.
Sorry, I've got to get back to work.
There you go.
Look, I really do think it will benefit the patients.
Well, then you do it. We haven't got time.
Hello, Mill Health Centre.
You aren't just putting on a brave face, are you?
I want this... I want to move on, sort things out for Mum.
It's going to be good.
And you remember that I'm here to support you so anything
that you're not clear on, any doubts, you just let me know.
Doubts? I don't have doubts. I'm Mr Banish Doubts Man.
Karen, let it go. # Let it... #
No. No singing! Come on.
Hi, Karen. Hi, Adam. Sorry, sorry...I got held up.
Which we could do without,
since we're short-staffed and snowed-under clearing the post holidays backlog.
Oh, well, I hope you got it sorted.
What? Yes, we're getting there.
Erm, I have Adam's notes.
We didn't want to put this off.
It's not fair on Adam.
I'm just shutting this down.
Sorry, this thing is prehistoric. One second.
Adam Reynolds and my mother Jackie Reynolds.
And your mother's too ill to attend.
You've got a lot of cases on?
'Fraid so. I'm just double checking my notes.
OK, so...this is Adam's only case. This is his life.
ALL: We're not worthy, we're not worthy.
Admitting it is the first step to coping with it.
But, hey, don't worry, lads. I won't hold it against you!
-Are we celebrating?
-It'll have to be after hockey.
OK, good. Well, we can work up a thirst.
And you might even get started on the next stage of the league.
How long have you got, again?
I'll see you at hockey.
Rosie, it's, erm, Dr Reid...Emma.
Is something wrong?
No, not at all. Not medically.
It's about Max, isn't it?
Look, the photographs are back out there.
I take it you know?
Rosie, look, I understand, you know and...
..well, if you're anything like me then
you'll just pretend that everything's OK.
When...deep down you're feeling humiliated.
Look, Rosie, I suppose what I'm trying to say is that if you want
to talk to somebody, you know, you can talk to me.
OK. Did Jimmi ask you to call me?
No, no, no, he doesn't know.
He wants me to talk to a counsellor about it,
like I'm mentally ill.
That's really not the case,
but if you did want to see a counsellor then, then it's not a bad idea.
It's just so unfair.
We're the victims here, we're the ones who've been wronged.
How can he get to keep those pictures out there?
His mates treat him like a hero.
Does it ever end?
Look, unfortunately, we can't do anything about the internet.
And I understand how frustrating that feels and how helpless you feel.
But I promise you, he will get his comeuppance.
No-one gets through life unscathed.
Not even him?
No, and I believe that one day he will grow up
and he will really regret how he's treated people.
I wish I had your faith in that.
He'll do this to other women.
This is what that stupid competition is. It's not over.
He needs to be stopped.
-I've got to go.
Obviously, your mother's case presents some real challenges.
Adam, you have to understand that the level of care your mother's going to need...
Jackie. Her name's Jackie.
OK, the level of care that Jackie's going to need is demanding.
An occupational therapist has assessed her.
Looking after herself, she'll find day-to-day living demanding.
Getting in and out of her wheelchair, preparing food...
Adam, she's going to find it difficult looking after herself.
However, we are constantly reviewing your mother's progress
and the support she needs.
The aim is to help her - Jackie - achieve assisted living.
What about me?
We have our doubts... at least at the moment.
A lively teenage boy is a handful for any parent.
Adam, we can't say if Jackie is going to be able to look after you
in the foreseeable future. I'm sorry.
I don't need looking after.
That's another question. This meeting is to hear your thoughts.
So I get to decide?
No, um, that's not practical, I'm afraid.
I'll go speak to him.
-KNOCK ON DOOR
I, er, heard you were talking to Valerie.
Were you running the library idea past her?
She hated it?
She could not see the benefits.
But once she does, she will be an enthusiastic supporter.
She really hated it, didn't she?
It is just the start of the consultation process.
And we have not heard from Mrs Hollins.
No, I am sure that she will be more than open to this new idea.
-We can't stop banging into each other, can we?
Please take the photos down.
Speak up. I can't hear you.
Take the photos down.
Get rid of them, please.
Why would I do that?
Because...because it's humiliating.
We're...we're people, not just notches on your bedpost.
You back for more?
Well, I'd say that's why she's really here.
Take them down, please.
Take your pants down? Cor, you're keen, aren't you?
None of the other women have a problem with it. So why should I?
They do! Have you even asked them?
Well, have you?
What's she on about?
She wants me to take the pictures off the website
but none of the other women have a problem with it.
Rosie! My name is Rosie!
-You lied to me!
Why are you hiding?
I wasn't hiding.
I just thought that when I came out here that that strop in there
had a bit of showbiz about it and I wasn't going to buy a ticket.
And I also thought you should take some time to think about
what Gina's been telling you.
It's not fair.
It's not fair on me and it's not fair on Mum.
So I've told Gina we're going to go for some lunch,
so she can get on with some other work, and then you're going to go back in there and face this.
It's not going to go away on its own
and if you want to convince them that you are adult enough
to deal with this, and have a voice,
then throwing your toys out the pram is not the way to go about it.
-Do NOT do that.
Come on! Come on, come on.
He's coming home, boys.
SHE BREATHES DEEPLY
So, what happens to me?
There are a number of options.
We can look at other family members, or a friend of the family.
Your mum suggested some names.
-You have cousins in Newcastle.
I don't want to go to Newcastle.
I don't know it. I don't know anyone there.
I don't know my cousins. They're strangers.
And I don't want to be that far away from Mum.
At this stage, it's only an option. We need to find you a home.
I don't want to be stuck in some care home.
In your case, we're not sure that's the best solution, anyway.
Solution? Like I'm a problem?
You're not a problem.
But we DO need to find you somewhere to live.
Somewhere safe. An environment that is, er, a good fit for you.
He... Don't get your hopes up...
I'd need to speak to Rob first, but he could come and stay at ours.
-Not going to be long-term, is it?
Cos he's a teenager. I need to speak to Rob first.
That's certainly an option, but that requires a different assessment.
Let's not explore this any further until you've had a full discussion with Rob.
I don't get why I can't just go home.
Because you're 15.
Oh! I can see you are terribly burdened with your workload.
Well, the place was quiet.
Just for a few seconds.
Adam, our priority here is looking after your emotional
and physical needs.
They're best with my mum.
You really don't see how much care your mother is going to need.
-Because I'm a kid?
-No. Because you've never dealt with it before.
You've never seen it before.
I know adults who have no idea what's involved.
They think they do until it hits them, and then, they simply don't.
You will inevitably end up being a carer for her -
which we don't believe is in your best interests.
I want to care for her!
Adam, it's 24/7. It's intimate.
There's stuff regarding your mum's care
that I don't think she's going to want you doing.
-Like taking her to the toilet. Washing her.
Do I need to go into more detail?
We don't want you to lose out on any more of your childhood.
I'm not a kid. I'm fed up of being treated like one.
I think that's enough.
Adam has a lot to think about.
What's the deadline?
Better get started then.
It's grab-a-granny night at the Dog and Shepherd.
You might even pull an Asian pensioner. Two birds, one stone!
-Imagine if you can't even score there - how embarrassing.
The pressure's on, mate.
Oi, less of that talk. Or it'll be your mum.
She's got grandkids, right?
Yeah, she's also got standards.
HE LAUGHS SARCASTICALLY
See how you and your mates like it when you're humiliated online.
What the hell are you doing?
-Looks like you weren't up to the job, Maxie boy.
She's come to try us out!
Maybe I should report you to the league for a job half done.
No, she's just back for some more.
Yeah, couldn't get enough of me, could you, Roxie?
Max was right. She's a bit of a nympho, this one.
-She's begging for it now! Wahey!
Are you some kind of psycho?
Don't you ever come near me again. Or else!
Or else what? You'll rape me again?
What you on about? I didn't rape you.
Yes, you did.
You violated me. You deceived me, you lied to me.
You made me think I meant something to you.
If I knew you were in some stupid, infantile competition,
-I never would have...
-I pitied you. Don't you get it?
You better stay well away from me, or I'll report you to uni
for stalking and have you kicked out.
I've got enough witnesses now.
And if you EVER accuse me of raping you again, you'll be sorry!
Do you understand?
We slept together.
After that, I wasn't interested and this is your pathetic revenge.
Don't embarrass yourself any more than you already have.
You didn't say a single word on the way home.
-Are you mad at me? Have I said something to upset you?
Well, that's something - if it's only one word.
I know it's hard to take what you're hearing.
And if we could make it any easier,
if we could sugar-coat it in any way
and still be doing our jobs, we would.
But it's the reality.
Adam, you're going to be OK.
You promise that, do you? That I'll be OK, no matter what?
You can do that?
No, but I promise that I will do my very best for you.
The very best for me is my mum getting better,
everything going back to the way it was and me going home.
Anything else is not the best for me.
-I'm on my own with this.
-No, you're not.
-Am I not?
Then let me stay, please. Just until my mum gets better, or until I'm old enough.
Adam, I shouldn't have said those things in front of you.
I shouldn't have got your hopes up.
-Cos I've got to speak to Rob, Gina again.
-Please, Karen. Please, just let me stay. Please.
Hello, Mr Potato Head!
I'm making a video promoting safety and security for female
students and staff on campus.
It's about time someone showed the initiative. Good for you.
So you'd be up for taking part, then?
Where is my phone?
You must have left it at home.
Many a good shot has been ruined by a creeping boom!
After Max makes it through to the group stages of 'the League', Rosie plans her revenge. Meanwhile, Adam is given a stark view of his future and Valerie hates Mrs Tembe's library idea.
