MUSIC: I'm Jim Morrison, I'm Dead by Mogwai
Do you know, I can't help but think, what if that had been you?
-Or the kids?
-But it wasn't. We're fine.
Yeah, but it can all just be taken away, in a moment.
That's a very Eeyore-ish way of looking at things.
-I'll get it!
My new laptop's arrived!
-Has it got all the bells and whistles?
Eight gig of RAM, quad core processor, one terabyte hard drive,
what more can I ask for?
I have no idea what you are talking about,
but I am happy for you.
Right, we'd better get going. I'll see you tonight.
Do you know, I am very proud of you.
Spending your money on something that's very useful.
Right. I'll get my coat.
Thanks again for covering, man.
She'd go mad if she found out.
I know it is going to be a difficult day.
But we must all keep calm and carry on,
in the great British tradition.
-Ah, yeah, better.
I've had a word with the consultants.
-They're pleased with his progress.
-Well, that is good news.
I've been worried all weekend.
I've made some flapjacks - help yourself.
Daniel and I have become quite close recently. He's my rock.
And he was such a hero.
No, he wasn't. He behaved stupidly!
Zara had already called the police, and they were on their way.
He should've just waited.
But, oh, no, he had to go steaming in and nearly got himself killed!
You work at the surgery, don't you? I'm a patient. Morwenna Price.
I heard it on the news, I...had to do something.
And the response, you can see. It's fantastic.
The good thing about a tragedy like this, it brings people together.
But you do know that Daniel isn't actually dead?
I've set up a Mates Reconnected page, too. Friends of Dr Daniel.
-Have a look. People have written such lovely things.
The surgery is open as normal.
Not really. We do this every day.
Thanks. It's a nice...gesture.
Sergeant. You busy?
Fancy doing something a bit more interesting?
I fancy doing anything but this.
Could you go and talk to Zara Carmichael?
She's freezing me out. I'm worried we've lost her.
-Well, after what's happened, you can't blame her.
But if she wants long-term safety for her family,
she's going to need to testify.
That's in her best interests.
And if you're a good friend, you'll make her see that.
It's Zara - I can try.
Great. Because you're the only one she'll listen to.
-You know, these are the kind of people who slow down
to look at a road accident.
We're going to ignore them, Sidney. That's what we're going to do.
We are busy and important people, and they aren't.
So, we're just going to ignore them.
-You look cheerful.
-Yeah. I've just seen Mrs Glenister and her twins.
And they're doing really well. It's nice.
Nice to have something positive.
Shall we go out for lunch?
Erm, I'll go to the deli, and we can have a walk.
Yeah. Yeah, it'd be nice to get some fresh air.
I've got something very important to tell you.
What? Hang on. Whoa, whoa, whoa. What...do you mean?
-Are you ill?
-No, no, no.
Nothing like that. See you later.
Oh, it's you.
-How are you, Zara?
-I'm all right. Joe's in here, if....
Joe? Joe, darling?
Hello, young man. How are you?
Oh, it's all right. This is Rob.
You know Rob, darling.
We've just come to put some special gadgets into your house
to make it more secure.
Safer. This is my friend Andy.
Andy, this is Joe.
What are we supposed to do?! This is madness!
-The phone's been ringing off the hook!
-I know, tell me about it.
Not coming in for appointments -
they're coming in with offers of help and asking for news.
-What kind of help? There's nothing much they can do.
I mean, it's that... Morgana woman's fault.
-Ooh, everybody's got the wrong end of the stick.
I have spent the entire morning
telling everybody that Daniel isn't exactly dead!
Now they're ringing...right... with offers of money!
What for, I don't know!
Daniel's family, presumably.
What, like Zara is going to accept charity?
-Erm, is there anything I can do?
Would you tell that flipping woman to take her flipping shrine
OK, yeah, I'll...I'll...give it a try.
Look, she's a nice lady. I'm sure she means well.
No, no, no. She's enjoying it.
Good morning, Campus Surgery...
-How are you doing, Zara?
I'm not the one who's in ICU.
I'm not sleeping, and...
you've seen Joe - he's having nightmares.
He'll get through it. Kids are tough.
Your mate's here fitting the alarms. Why are you here?
-I just wanted to make sure that you and Joe were OK.
Or did Stanton send you to get me back on side as a witness?
-I thought so.
-All right, yes. So...?
-I can't testify.
-Would you at least think about it?
Would YOU? If it were Karen in hospital? Or Jack, or Imogen?
-Well. I would hope that...
-No, you wouldn't.
You would put your family first, and that's what I'm doing.
-Zara, we've known each other for a long time.
-Yeah, we have.
And that's why he sent you, isn't it?
"You can persuade her, she trusts you, you talk to her."
-That's what he said, isn't it?
-Pretty much, yeah.
But he's only trying to do his job.
Zara, I understand that you're angry,
-and you've got every right to be...
do not patronise me.
Talk to Stanton. Please.
I mean, rage at him if you like, but at least hear him out.
No, the only people I'm prepared to talk to are Joe,
or my Dad and Daniel. And when he is better,
we will discuss how we're going to deal with this nightmare, together.
At last we've got some time to ourselves.
Can you just tell me what this is all about?
Oh, I've got the samosas you like.
-Do you remember telling me how to make them...?
-Just tell me!
All right. I didn't tell you this before, because I didn't want
-to upset you...
-What did you not want to tell me before?
What about Shak?
I know it's hard. Stay strong, yeah?
-Vere, Sid Vere.
Isn't it wonderful?
People have come from everywhere to share their experiences.
I've been kind of counselling.
Are... Are you a trained counsellor?
You don't need to be trained. You just need empathy.
Erm, look, I can that everyone really cares.
It's just, erm, we have had a few complaints.
I mean, it is blocking the roadway,
and there are concerns about the...
You know what this is, don't you?
Elf and Safety.
Some small-minded petty bureaucrat.
I've not had this trouble before.
What, you've... done this kind of thing before?
Places of tragedy.
I leave some flowers there, a poem, perhaps.
I start it off, people add to it.
There was that terrible accident, up by the reservoir. 19th of May.
-A man died.
-Yeah. Yeah, I remember.
And that young lad was stabbed.
Reece. He was only young.
He had everything to live for.
So I went and put some flowers.
It's human instinct. We all need to remember the fallen.
Princess Diana's funeral - you won't remember, you're too young...
No, no. I remember.
People queued for hours to sign the book of condolence.
Camped out overnight to watch the funeral procession go by.
There was this outpouring of emotion. It was good.
Healthy. Everyone's so uptight, stiff upper lip and all that.
The only time people feel they can be emotional
is when there's a national tragedy.
OK...but this isn't the same. I mean, you do see that?
I mean, Daniel... Dr Granger, he's not dead.
He's going to be all right.
But the fact that people think he's dead, it's...
It's upsetting them, and there's no need for it.
So I'm not saying don't have a shrine. Just maybe you could...
I don't know, tone it down a bit?
And if you could let people know that he IS recovering,
-I don't know, maybe put up a sign or something, to...
I'm Morwenna. Thank you.
They're lovely flowers.
It's good to know that people really care.
Just pop them down...
So, exactly how much has he spent?
Pretty much the whole lot, as soon as he got it.
-Gadgets, trainers, stuff he didn't really need.
How can you spend £2,000?!
I think the money went to his head.
And you sorted this by...?
-Well, I got him to take some of it back...
..and I topped up his account.
-How much did you give him?
See, I knew you'd be upset.
Which is why I told him not to tell you.
I try and teach my kids to be responsible with money,
and you're teaching Shak the exact opposite,
that he can waste as much as he wants cos good old Heston
is going to bail him out. It's like the banks, isn't it?
You know, you can mess up but you're still going to get your bonus!
Ruhma, you're missing the point.
No, no. You completely undermined me.
You went behind my back,
and you both lied to me.
So what is it about building a shrine?
Well, it keeps the memory alive of the person that's died,
and it's fresh in everybody's minds.
It gives everyone a chance to share their feelings, express themselves.
What's happened is terrible, but it's brought the community together.
We all need a space to grieve...
OK, that's enough.
..and here's one of the heroic doctors in the practice,
soldiering on, despite their devastating grief...
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Stop talking.
OK, everyone, can I have your attention, please?
Read my lips. Daniel is not dead.
We all got that, yeah?
I am sorry if that ruins your day,
but he is going to be just fine, OK?
Let me ask you something.
Have you ever actually met Daniel?
OK, come on, have you had a consultation with Dr Granger?
Well...no. But that's the not the point.
It IS the point! It's that you've never met him.
You're not his wife. He's not your father.
You're not a member of this practice.
This has got nothing to do with you. You've got no right to be here.
The only reason you ARE here is because you are a vulture!
You're all vultures!
And you! You call yourself a journalist, right?
Well, why don't you report on something meaningful?
Report on how medical professionals face abuse and assault every day.
Report on how our NHS is getting dismantled before our very eyes,
and we do nothing!
And as for this...
-This brilliantly pathetic, mawkish shrine.
-Al! Al! Al!
-Daniel doesn't need it....
-And we don't need it!
Al, just calm down, OK?
Put the teddy down!
Are you all right, Morwenna?
And you can clear off, as well.
OK, er... Let's just take a moment, shall we? Breathe.
We're fine. We were just getting a few things straight, weren't we?
Al, you're not helping. Come on.
Come upstairs and I'll make you a cup of tea.
-I've got some chocolate in my bag...
-I don't need chocolate.
-I'm not a child.
-Well, stop behaving like one!
This is my fault.
Not all of it.
But... But you're rewarding him for screwing up!
Look, I didn't just bail him out.
I said we had to have a serious chat about his finances.
Oh, well, he's going to learn a lot from you, then, isn't he?
I don't want to argue with you, Ruhma,
but you're living as though you're still a single parent
on a midwife's salary, and you're not.
I want to share my money with you, and you're... You're offended.
Because it feels like everything is on your terms.
What do you mean?
We live in your house.
-Well, where else are we supposed to live?
-I don't know. It just...
I... It feels like you're trying to control us.
Control the finance.
I want to look after you.
This make do and mend attitude is all very well...
It's not an attitude.
It's... It's a way of life, it's how we have lived.
There is nothing wrong with that.
You don't have to live like that any more.
And if anyone is being controlling in this relationship,
Ruhma Carter, it's you.
Right, I've told you. Let's have lunch.
This is a silent alarm that is connected
straight to the police station.
You press that button, and officers will be here straight away.
so whatever room in the house you're in, take it with you.
This works on the same principle.
Only, as you can see, it's smaller, more portable.
It will fit inside your pocket.
You need the police, you press the button.
Your friend Andy left instructions,
and I'm not an idiot, so you don't need to show me.
I mean, your house is already quite secure.
You've got good strong doors, you've got lockable windows
and a burglar alarm,
so these are just extras, but they are good extras.
Zara, we really do want to keep you safe.
Or we could just leave.
What, leave Letherbridge?
Yeah. A few weeks ago, it was unthinkable.
This is where I met Daniel, where we had Joe,
and...at the Mill, those are our friends,
annoying as some of them can be.
Where would you go?
Weston, near my dad.
Joe could grow up by the sea. It's tempting.
You really don't need to leave.
Maybe we do. Maybe it's time.
We could live anywhere in the world. Everywhere needs doctors.
As long as there's a decent school for Joe.
Do you really want to leave?
No! I thought we'd spend the rest of our lives here,
making happy memories.
But now, every time I walk out that front door,
I see this is the place where Daniel was nearly killed.
And I don't want to be here any more.
How'd you find me?
What are you, psychic?
No. I just know that you work in the grounds.
Dr Haskey shouldn't have spoken to you like that.
Is he like that with his patients?
No. Really, he isn't.
He's just... He's upset.
We all are.
Yeah, I know. I'm not stupid.
And I'm not mental, either, though that's what you all think.
No-one thinks that.
I know who the Prime Minister is, I know who I am, I know the date.
And you know that Daniel Granger's going to be all right?
Why do you do it, Morwenna? Erm, build the shrines, I mean?
-Making something beautiful. What's wrong with that?
Nothing at all.
It's just...why do YOU need to do it?
I was the doctor attending one of those scenes you mentioned.
The car accident, back in May.
Anyway, I went back the Sunday after,
just to see the place and deal with it.
I did see all those flowers, and I thought, what a nice thing to do.
You see? That's why.
Because it DOES help people.
Whatever your friend thinks.
Is it helping you?
Have you lost someone, Morwenna?
It's not that.
..my sister died in January, but we weren't close.
We'd hardly spoken in years.
Do you want to talk about it?
I'll never feel safe again. None of us will.
You can't keep us safe, no matter how many gadgets you install...
It's not just gadgets. It's not just alarms.
We are talking about real manpower. This is a priority.
We have dozens of officers
trying to catch those boys who attacked Daniel.
Officers will be on duty here, at Joe's school, and at the Mill.
There were patrols passing the night Daniel was attacked.
Yes, I know, but that's different, OK?
We are going to put in lots of resources.
Stanton has already authorised it.
There's nothing to say.
Me and Alison just didn't get on.
We were close when we were little, but...
-..it's her fault.
That git she married, Paul.
He didn't get on with us.
He made her choose sides.
And she chose him.
We hardly saw them.
It upset Mum and Dad.
I invited them, everyone, for Christmas.
Paul and Alison didn't even turn up.
I told Alison that I'd never speak to her again.
And I didn't.
Two weeks later, their car crashed. Paul was fine.
I'm not grieving for her, I'm furious with her.
It's because anger's a stage of grief.
-Yeah. I know, but...
-You're grieving for everyone else.
You need to grieve for Alison.
With everyone else, with the shrines, I can help people, but...
..I can't make this right.
It's because there's no set way.
Forgive me, Zara, but I am going to play devil's advocate
one more time, for Stanton's sake.
You're just going to give up, run away,
and let them get away with what they did to Daniel and to Reece?
I want us to be safe.
Well, one way of staying safe would be to go through with it,
-and get them locked up.
-You can't lock up the whole gang.
You can lock up some of them,
and then others will just come to take their place.
And it will never end.
And...I never understood before.
I thought, why don't people just stand up to criminals,
get them off the streets?
But now I know why.
I thought Zara Carmichael might be braver than that.
I'm not brave, Rob.
I...used to think I wasn't scared of anyone.
But these are boys,
these are children, and I'm terrified of them.
Because I've seen what they can do.
If you were to go through...
I nearly did go through with it, and Daniel nearly got killed!
They nearly killed him, Rob. So that is it.
I have to stop this. I am not going to testify.
You are going to release Braydon.
They are going to back off, because they know I've backed off,
and we are going to be left alone, and we are going to be safe.
-So you're giving up.
-You're letting them win.
OK, if I were alone,
if I didn't have a family... I could do it.
But I have a family...
and you should understand that.
You would have to make the same choice,
so do not ask me.
I'm going to see Daniel at the hospital. I'm going to take Joe.
So you can tell DI Stanton that I'm not going to testify.
And you can tell him that I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, too.
Do you want to, er...build a shrine for your sister?
Well, you're good at it.
You've definitely got the eye.
OK, erm, if you WERE to build a shrine,
what flowers would you put in it?
She was no gardener, but they were her favourites.
Mum used to grow them when we were little.
They go six, eight foot high.
-They were gigantic, they was.
-Hollyhocks it is, then.
They flower late summer.
There's always next year.
-Get them while it's hot.
Here we go.
All right, OK, here we are.
How did you do it?
I just talked to her. She's a nice lady.
-Oh, and she says she'll take that Daniel page down.
I am going to go and grab some lunch. Does any...
-Oh, they've gone.
-Yeah, because you scared them away.
Nothing to do with him. You did it.
Look, I owe you an apology. I lost my temper.
It will probably happen again.
-Well, back to normal then.
You see - just sleeping.
There's nothing to be afraid of.
Shall we hold his hand?
No luck, then?
No. If anything, I think I've made her dig her heels in.
We've probably just lost our key witness.
-I don't know where that leaves us.
-I think we'll be fine.
-You did exactly what I wanted you to.
What, you sent me over there as your punchbag?
She rages at you, gets it all out of her system,
every reason not to testify.
By the time I talk to her, she'll have calmed down, ready to listen.
I understand Dr Carmichael pretty well. I like her.
We'll get her to testify, don't worry.
Ooh, look at him!
Ooh, he's a big one, isn't he?
I cannot believe that you didn't tell us the danger that he was in.
That we were in. Correction, that YOU put us in!
OK, yeah, I can see some of the way.
-That mean's he's shrivelled.
-That also means he's dead.
The campus is besieged by well-wishers when a grieving woman sets up a shrine outside their front door. Can Sid sort it out?
Heston decides that honesty is the best policy, while Tom tasks Rob with persuading Zara to testify.
