# You were so smart then... #
Get yourself something warm to eat.
# In your jacket and coat
# My softest red scarf was warming your throat
# Winter was on us
# At the end of my nose
# But I never love England more than when covered in snow... #
The forecast says that later it's going to be cold and rainy.
Have you got somewhere you can get out of it?
Those sores look nasty.
Have you had a doctor look at them?
Because I think they could be infected and I really think you...
Well, whatever brought you here...I'm really sorry.
This, my darling, is going to be the best Christmas ever.
And don't worry -
the police have caught all of those bad men and put them in jail,
and now there is nothing to be afraid of
and nothing to worry about.
All of them in jail?
You can open this one now.
Tom phoned last night.
He told me that once Braydon was convicted,
he shopped the whole rest of the gang for a better sentence.
They couldn't shut him up.
I told you that standing up to them was the only way.
I did think that I'd blown it, though.
I am proud of you.
I should've been here.
I couldn't have gone through with it if I hadn't known
that Joe was somewhere far away and safe with you.
Mummy, I want to show Toby.
That's good, that's good.
Besa, did you, erm...
..get a chance to think about your, your last period date?
-I don't know.
It would really help me to work out when baby is coming.
I don't know. I raped many times.
My family threw me out.
I travel, day, night, by truck, boat, car, with friend.
I not think about dates!
OK. I'm sorry. Yeah, I understand.
I just... Besa, I think, maybe, you may be small.
But I don't know what is normal for you.
Besa, would it be all right if I can check
to see how big baby is?
Maybe I can feel your belly if it's OK?
Thank you, thank you.
Do you know when our next homeless clinic is?
Erm, not till after the holidays.
Erm, right, are we ready?
Mrs Tembe, I met this homeless gentleman round the corner
and he's got these sores that definitely need looking at.
Can I get him in and get him registered?
Er, no, no, we are not allowed.
There are other practices running homeless clinics.
Er, he could go there.
I will... I will send you the information.
I'm not sure that he realises he needs help.
Maybe he could go to one of the charities.
Perhaps someone there could help.
Oh, so we can't help him because of the rules?
But we're quite happy to dump him on an overstretched homeless charity?
I am very sorry, but those are the rules.
Yeah, well, we've all bent the rules on occasion.
I don't know, I'm...
Besa, I'm not sure, but I think baby might be breech.
Do you know what this means?
Erm, it means that the baby...
..is upside down. And this is OK. We can, we can fix...
Besa, I think you need to seek asylum.
This is a good thing for you and baby.
Because, in hospital, we can help.
No. I cannot. I cannot.
I think you have to.
They treat us...
..me and baby. They say OK.
And then they send back.
-It might not. It might...
-No. I know this country.
People here legal, with family, with children.
Still, this country say, "Go back."
I can't go back. No home. No safe.
-My family why I here!
We're better here. I do myself.
No. Besa. Besa, please. Please listen.
If you try to have this baby here, by yourself,
this is not good.
It's not good for you, not good for baby.
In hospital, we can, we can get a scan, we can see...
I know girl, also Albanian. She...she break arm.
Er, man with a bicycle hit.
And, yes, they fix it,
and then send back.
..I need to... This is to take a swab.
..to check for infection. Here.
Down here. It's very important.
No. Please, no.
Besa, we want to make sure you and baby are OK.
Besa, you know back home, did...
..did your family... Did...?
We were 12.
For baby...to come out, hurt.
Ah, welcome back!
I'd have thought you'd want to spend the day with Joe.
-But he wanted to spend the day with his mates from school.
More than his mother, so it seems.
It's a teacher training day so he wanted to spend time with his bessie mate.
So Mummy got blown out.
And Daniel wanted to come in to check that this place
hadn't fallen apart without him.
Oh, and not spend the day alone with you?
Ah, Dr Granger! I thought I heard you.
It's nice to have you back
but I really was not expecting you in today.
Just popping in to see what I'm going to be faced with before the break.
We're doing a Christmas song and a video.
You're just in time for that.
I told you this was a bad idea.
No, no. No. Come on.
After what we've been through, maybe this is exactly what we need.
Something fun and light.
And, after the wonderful support we've been given,
it would be a good thank you, wouldn't it?
Try not to worry and I'll see you in a few days.
Besa, please... Please think about seeking asylum.
If you don't go to hospital, you or the baby could die.
Go home - WILL die.
Wondered if I could just ask you a quick favour?
-Er, there's a homeless man round the corner
and the poor thing looks like he could use a doctor seeing him.
And, well, your next appointment's cancelled.
So, do you think you could nip round?
Why do you think he needs a doctor?
Well, he's got these sores and they look really nasty.
OK. Well, if he does need urgent treatment,
would he not be better off going to A&E?
And I am still chocka for the rest of the day
and I've got the recording tonight and...
Well, if he just needs looking at, can you not get Eesh to do it?
I need to crack on with this.
I should tell Mrs Tembe.
Ayesha, she's been raped.
..I've just discovered she's an FGM victim.
Look, she doesn't want to use the NHS.
Would you be able to just walk away from her?
Would you... Would you just let her die in labour?
Because I'm pretty sure that baby's breech as well.
I don't make the rules.
Ayesh, she'll give birth in that dingy house,
with women who don't know what they're doing!
But there's a system.
She claims asylum and she gets the treatment she needs.
No, because I have looked
and she doesn't meet the criteria for asylum.
Look, if she was from Syria then we wouldn't be having
this conversation, but she's not.
And if she goes home, she might be killed.
-But because there are no bombs there...
-It's not our call.
Ayesha, please! She's been raped.
If she goes back,
they're going to make her marry her rapist, or worse.
And she can't go home! I couldn't live with myself, OK?
If I abandon this girl and something happened to her baby...
Just please. Please.
Is...everything all right?
Yeah. It's fine.
Hello. I'm Valerie, by the way.
Look, I'm not a doctor or a nurse,
but I have had some training in health care
and I work for a medical surgery.
So, those sores, we really don't want them to get infected, do we?
Is this OK?
Look, if you don't want me to do this, just say no.
People feeling generous.
Or maybe just one last act of good karma,
before their moment of truth.
What's your name?
You don't have to tell me if you don't want to.
Look, I really think you should get to the hospital.
Because this needs more attention than I can give.
Perhaps I should call an ambulance.
-I mean, it's not exactly an emergency...
No, listen, because this is going to get worse
and it's going to be a long, cold winter. I just really think...
Come in. Hey! Welcome back.
Uh, apparently I have to come and see you
about singing in this Christmas song.
Now, I can't sing for toffee, but Zara can,
and I think it would be a really good idea for her to get involved.
The thing is I've already got it all worked out.
I mean, Heston is high maintenance,
hates the arrangement and keeps banging on about Shakin' Stevens.
Ayesha's a bag of nerves and insists on miming
and Valerie is... Well, Valerie's Valerie, isn't she?
-So you're far from being sorted?
-Oh, no, no. It is!
I mean, once I've got them all on board.
I'm kind of pushed for spaces to be honest, mate.
But you will fit her in?
Is that some kind of Jedi mind trick?
"These aren't the droids you're looking for."
Are you moving?
Er, maybe. Just looking.
Er, don't tell Emma, though. Please.
Oh, So, you will fit Zara in then...?
Is that blackmail?
Well, now, I believe that now we have the ordeal of the trial
-over and done with, it would be good to...
Yes. Obviously, you went through more than the rest of us,
but it affected us all.
And there were threats made against the Mill and...
Oh, yes, the thing with Al. Fair point.
It will be good to have something enjoyable.
To worry about?
I was thinking more of bringing us together as a team.
Yes. Of course. So excited.
What's Christmas without a little...joy?
Well, to be honest, I did think the whole thing was a little...
..inappropriate at first,
but now I think it will be good publicity for us.
And Dr Vere has done a wonderful job in rallying the troops.
I am even thinking of sending the video around as part
of the practice Christmas greeting.
So, what do you think?
I think it just sounds dull.
I thought this kind of visual razzle-dazzle
was supposed to be second nature to you people.
Shouldn't it all be dynamic and fast, or slow and classy,
like that Robert Palmer video.
What you described is just, well, static.
I don't think you appreciate how much work
has gone into just the music.
I suppose I can try and jazz it up, I guess.
I mean, stills photography is more my thing but, I mean,
the camera has got a video function on it and I've got editing software
so I could do a little bit of something.
It's not really going to trouble MTV, but, you know...
Oi! You two!
Think you're brave, do you? Picking on one poor man!
I'm calling the police! Then we'll see how brave you are!
I bought you this.
I was going to get you meat, but I didn't know what you liked.
Everyone likes cheese, don't they?
Oh. Also I got you some cream for those sores.
It probably won't cure them but it might stop them getting worse.
Is it all right if I put some on you?
OK, well, maybe you can put some on yourself.
HE SPEAKS INDISTINCTLY
I'll check on you later.
He's got some infected sores.
I bought some antibacterial cream to put on them.
That should help, shouldn't it?
Yeah, it won't do any harm but somebody should take look.
I wanted him to go to A&E.
That's a good idea, if he self presents.
Have you got plans for Christmas Day?
No, but if you need me out the way then it's not...
Oh, no, no! No, quite the opposite.
No, I was just going to say, my cousin's abroad this Christmas
so if you wanted Debs, Tracey and Sierra to come on over,
the more the merrier. And Karl, if he's on leave.
You've done so much for me since my mum died, Valerie.
You've asked for nothing. Thank you.
Oh, you don't have to say thanks.
You'd do the same for me.
What's this? Who's...Gala Erkin?
It's your girl's name. If anyone asks, her family origin is Turkish.
Where did you get this?
Does it matter? It's legit.
It'll get her a scan and the treatment she needs.
Just don't let anybody try to contact her next of kin.
Who does it belong to? Will it leave a paper trail?
If you have to know, she's a mate. She's emigrated.
Now, don't ask any more questions.
Just get Besa the help she needs.
Do you know, you could get in a lot of trouble if this gets out.
Then make sure it doesn't.
Thank you. Hey, how come you changed your mind?
We all need a little help sometimes.
I don't think you've missed much at all.
You were only away for a few weeks.
You've heard about the musical extravaganza?
-Wasn't my choice.
Hi, Heston, just checking everyone's practising their lyrics.
# Snow is falling
# All around us
# Children playing... #
You see! It's awful!
No, no. It's not quite the right style, though.
But don't worry, once we get you in the studio,
you'll be great. It brings out the best in everyone.
Just, you might want to think about toning it down a tad.
I'm going to leave you to it.
I don't think it's awful, Heston.
I think it's excruciating.
Of course. It's not right for me at all!
Nice try, Heston, but you're doing it, OK? Just keep practising.
Oh! Are those for the post? Let me. I could do with some air.
Hey, Karen, I've got an urgent home visit.
Could you book me an emergency scan at St Phil's, for tonight, please?
OK. How pregnant is she? They'll want to know.
Er, I think she's about 30 weeks, but I'm not sure.
And I think the baby is breech.
Yeah, yeah. That's right.
Erm, well, that's odd.
Well, 30 weeks pregnant. It says here she's on the pill.
Well, people make mistakes, don't they?
To be honest, I am not convinced that she is 30 weeks.
That's one of the things that I want to check.
Hey, how's Lily?
Erm... Oh, well, mixed, you know.
She's getting on really well with the baby,
she's settling into a routine.
But Austin, he's on remand and he's probably going to go to prison.
So that's hard and we don't know how long we're going to have her...
Yeah. I am sorry to hear that, you know.
-Hey, er, if you could do that, that'd be great.
I bought coffee but I don't really feel like it any more.
So you can have it. It's still warm.
I really think you should get to the hospital.
They can take care of you, look after those sores.
At the very least, you'll get out of the cold for a few hours.
It's not an imposition because that's what they're there for.
You poor soul.
-How long have you been...?
-Leave me alone!
No, I was just trying to put it in the bag for you.
Leave me alone! Go away. Don't touch me!
Why won't you let me help you?!
All I've been trying to do all day is help!
And instead of thanking me you just...
Obviously some people don't want help.
I give up.
Hey, come in.
-I've booked your patient in for a scan at 6.30.
Oh, great. Thank you very much, Karen.
Why didn't you do it yourself?
Well, I would have done but, erm, as I said,
I had that urgent home visit,
which turned out to be a false alarm in the end.
And, well, I wanted the scan for tonight
and if I'd waited till I got back,
it would have been probably booked up.
It was, erm, Gala. Er, the mum to be, that rang me.
She was having discomfort of some sort,
but that's why I asked you to do it.
She didn't call through reception.
No, no, no. She called my mobile.
Erm. So, there's something about this that I don't like.
This... This girl, she's been on the pill for quite a few years,
she's had regular smears.
She doesn't seem like the type who would make a daft mistake.
Yeah. Yeah, I thought exactly the same.
And so, I looked into it, but it turns out, you know,
what she said is right.
Well, I looked at her records...
..and there's no pregnancy.
There's, there's no scans. There's nothing.
So, um, I feel like I need to mention this to a doctor.
Karen, please don't.
I have come across this very young Albanian girl.
And she's a refugee.
-OK, so we can't...
We're stretched enough as it is, trying to help the people
we're meant to be helping. I mean, Lily, she could...
Yeah, I know, but I... I thought you'd understand.
I understand it's illegal.
Because of Lily. Because...
How you've helped her. You've been kind, understanding.
No. No, don't do that. Because this is entirely different.
So, what is it? An immigrant thing?
No. It's a rules thing!
She was raped, Karen.
She was raped and...
..her family tried to force her to marry the rapist.
And she's an FGM victim and so she fled.
And if she tries to have this baby without any medical support...
..she could die.
And she can't go through the system as an asylum seeker
because they will send her back,
and she can't go back.
You know that I wouldn't have done this unless it was necessary.
OK, so I'm not going to say anything
but you do understand that they will be asking questions at St Phil's.
Er, come in.
-Ready for tonight?
-Er, kind of.
Except now I've got to squeeze Zara in as well.
Shut that. And I have no idea what I'm going to do with Heston.
-I mean, I've got his part but...
-There'll be a fader in the studio.
-You can just turn him down.
-What, right down?
-Yeah, he'll never know.
He'll also never speak to me again.
And what's the downside?
No, listen, Heston is going to listen to it once.
He won't even notice.
Is that the list of who's doing what?
Er, no, no, no. You'll see it later. Thank you.
I've got some good news.
Erm, I've got you a scan, for tonight. At the hospital.
I told you, no hospital.
It, it's fine. It's sorted.
Because I've got the name of a British citizen,
a young woman who used to live in this country.
And all you have to do is remember her name.
It's Gala Erkin.
And I'll do the rest.
Besa, it will be fine. I promise.
Look, I'm from The Mill Health Centre.
We have a drop-in clinic for homeless people, early January.
You really should come in and get checked out.
In the meantime, there are some shelters in Birmingham
that you could try. You really need to get that cough checked out.
OK, look. I'm going to phone you a taxi to the hospital.
I mean, you'll have to wait but at least you'll be somewhere warm
and dry, at least for a couple of hours.
-You'll go to St Phil's?
Jimmi, what's this?
Directions and a map, even GPS co-ordinates, OK?
Literally everything you will need to find the studio,
short of me taking you there by the hand. OK?
Excellent. Er, thank you all for agreeing to do this.
Anything for a good cause, Mrs Tembe.
Have a nice time, everyone.
We're not going to do some silly warm-up, are we?
Er, you'll see when you get there.
OK, erm, I'll see you all at the studio.
Erm, time's on the sheet.
-This is miles away. Are we going to get...
-Has anybody seen Ruhma?
Yes, I was right, the baby is breech.
It's also full term which means it might come soon. OK?
So you, you're going to have to stay in hospital tonight.
You have to. Listen. It's breech.
The baby could come any time.
We need to find you a bed.
You will stay with me?
I'm sorry, I can't. I...
..I will promise that I will come back first thing in the morning.
But if the baby comes tonight,
if that happens, then you call me. OK?
-Are you wearing that for a bet?
What is it that you're looking for?
Mistletoe. We need it for the video.
Please. Help me now, please.
Oh, and merry Christmas. Oh!
