One, two, three. One, two, three.
One, two. One, two. One, two. One, two, three.
Hey, hey, hey. Good. That's very, very good. Good.
You know, you've got to watch your footwork.
And when you throw a right, you've got to put your whole weight behind it.
Right behind it, like that.
-Good. Very, very good.
Yeah. You've only been coming here for five months.
I've got kids been coming here for years, they're not a patch on you.
Just goes to show, if you've got it, you've got it.
And you've got it.
-And I've got a surprise for you.
A bout...next week.
-I've entered you.
Your first fight.
A... A proper fight?
-I don't know.
I thought you'd be pleased.
I am, it's just... It's a bit much.
What do you mean, a bit much? What's wrong?
I'm fine, honestly. Can I...? Can I just take a break?
OK. I'll see you back here in ten for another round, yeah?
Actually, when you think about it,
five portions a day is pitiful, isn't it?
We should have ten, 15! I've had six already!
Yeah, avocado, spinach, kale, celery - juiced - apple, pear.
-And how much did that lot set you back?
-I'm not sure.
See, because I'm thinking that most of our patients couldn't afford two
veg a day, never mind five, ten, 15.
Actually, I think that's a misconception.
I've been doing quite a lot of reading around it,
-and I think that some people just use that as an excuse.
Not to be too preachy,
but I cannot believe the low priority people place on food,
given that it's so central to our wellbeing.
Yes, but it doesn't have to be raw, does it?
I've got a great aunt who died when she was 102 and
she lived solely on a diet of meat and potato pie and jam roly-poly!
Well, there's always going to be anomalies.
Oh, dear, Ben.
Was that a very difficult meeting? You look awful.
Oh, no, no, it was OK. It was for the CCG.
-I just need coffee.
-Are you having trouble sleeping?
-I didn't get an awful lot, no.
-Say no more. I've got just the thing.
-Yeah, leave it with me.
Oh, Jimmi! I owe you one.
Will and Erin were fantastic!
What, Will didn't eat you out of house and home
and leave dirty towels all over the bathroom?
No, they were the perfect guests.
I really enjoyed having them there and they gave me a great review!
So what did you make of them?
You don't have to worry about Will.
-He's clearly having the time of his life.
Yeah, of course! They couldn't keep their hands off each other.
Mind you, that does not necessarily mean that they are a couple.
To be honest, I didn't really want to ask.
-I didn't want to jeopardise my review for being too nosy.
Oh, come on! Why are you being so serious?
You know, Will might be gay, he might be bi.
You know, he might just not want a label stuck on him!
What does it matter, if he's happy?
It doesn't. I don't care.
Kim's the one who's bothered. She keeps ringing me, asking questions,
and I've got nothing to tell her.
I haven't got a clue what's going on with him.
Maybe that's the way he likes it.
Yeah, you're safe.
Didn't want to barge in at the wrong moment.
We need a girls' changing room. It's discrimination.
Yeah, but up until a few months ago we didn't have any girls, did we?
You might not again soon.
Why? You leaving?
-Because you're good.
No, I'm serious.
I heard you're even going in for a bout.
God. Don't you start.
What? It's amazing!
Yeah, I know. Sorry.
It's just my grandad doing my head in.
Ah, he's all right is Maurice. He's been good to me.
I know, I know, local hero, everyone loves him.
Try having him in your face 24/7.
HE BLOWS RASPBERRIES I hear you.
Well...if you're tired of training with your grandad,
you can always...spar with me sometime.
Yeah, sure. I can give you my number,
just so we can organise training and get a session, if it will help.
-There you go.
-Hang on one minute.
Hmm. Oh, God. So sorry. Hmm. right, all done!
How can I help you?
I'd like to register, please, and I wondered
if there was any chance of an appointment today.
I know it's unlikely, but if you don't ask and all that.
Well, if you fill out one of those forms, I will take a look.
Doctor Clay's been recommended to me, actually, is he around?
Well, you're in luck cos he's doing the drop-in clinic, if you can wait.
That's great. Just take a seat.
Sorry, yes, it's just you've got a little...is it a sunflower seed?
Oh! No, it's a pumpkin seed.
Nah, school was not for me.
Grandad wanted me to stay on, but I couldn't wait to get out of there.
They kicked me out.
Why, what did you do?
I was a bit of a naughty boy.
I was never there and, when I was there, I didn't want to be,
so I played up.
My mum went mental when they kicked me out.
That's why I'm pouring everything I have into boxing.
It's my last chance to do something, you know?
-How long you lived with Maurice?
-Since last summer.
-What happened last summer?
-My mum died.
Yeah, I heard.
I'm such an idiot.
-Jade, I'm sorry.
-It's all right.
How did she...? You know what? you don't have to answer that question.
No, it's fine.
No-one ever asks me about her.
You must miss her.
Jade, I'm sorry I upset you, yeah?
I shouldn't have even brought your mum up.
What the hell are you doing?
-What are you standing there for?
Get out...before I lose my temper.
-What did he do to you?
-I don't believe you!
Did you really just do that?
-Me? What happened? You can talk to me!
Jade, please, come on. Well, where are you going?
We're in the middle of training!
I've had enough.
-Will you get out of my way, please?
Don't be like this.
Let's start another session.
You'll feel good when you're boxing.
-You can use me as a punch bag.
Look, please let me go, I'm going to be late for...
-Late for what?
-Fine, the doctor, all right?
I'm going to the doctor.
Whoa. Whoa. Whoa.
What's wrong? Why didn't you tell me?
Because I don't have to tell you everything!
-I'm coming with you.
You haven't been right for weeks.
Now, something is up and something is up because of him.
I've seen the way he watches you.
Come on, let's go to the doctor. Come on! Come on!
I can't work out what it is that aggravates it -
it'll be fine for months and then suddenly it flares up again.
Lucky it's behind my ear, I suppose.
Could be any number of things.
Could be a change in soap, shampoo, hair products, could be stress.
I'll prescribe some steroid cream.
Moisturising is really important.
And is you could stay away from really hot showers?
I mean, warm is fine.
OK. As long as they don't have to be cold! Thanks.
I should be thanking you. Emma said you gave her a great review,
so, thank you, I appreciate it.
No, it was a laugh.
-And she told us a few things about you.
Mmm. So, you two have got history?
Er... Barely. I mean, we're friends.
-Seems like a nice place to work, friendly?
-Yeah, it is.
Why, are you interested in practice nursing?
I always thought it might be a bit boring.
Well, not boring, but, I don't know, routine.
Depends on the practice.
So do you think it'd be a good move for me?
I'd really value your opinion. Will says you're brilliant with advice.
Well, if she won't tell you, then I will, shall I?
She's been a bit off for a while now.
She spends hours and hours in bed.
She doesn't go out with pals or anything -
the only place she goes is boxing.
Let's just take your temperature, shall we?
Here we go.
Can you tell me how you've been feeling?
That's completely normal.
Maybe you could tell me why you've made the appointment.
Perhaps Jade and I could have a little chat on our own.
-Thank you, Mr Robertson.
Although I think I might know why she's come to see you.
She doesn't want her old grandad listening, do you?
I caught her with one of the boxing lads.
-I don't know exactly what was happening...
I know she's of an age where she might have an interest in lads,
or what have you, but something's not right.
She's been so withdrawn.
I don't want her going off the rails, getting pregnant or worse.
Perhaps we could just have a chat on our own.
Look, if you're in some kind of trouble...
It's nothing to do with you!
Maybe we should just give her a bit of space.
Yeah, of course.
Yes. Thank you, Doctor.
But what about progression?
Because I wouldn't want to... I'm so sorry.
Listen to me, going on and on, when you need to get on.
-Oh, no, it's fine. You're my last patient of the morning.
I don't suppose you fancy grabbing a quick bite to eat somewhere, do you?
Only I've a couple more quick questions
and it'd be great to carry on the conversation.
-Only if you don't mind.
No, no. I mean, yeah, that'll be good.
I've colour coded it all for clarity -
that's green for vegetables,
orange for fruit, and red for protein, yes?
It's very thorough.
It must have taken you ages.
Not that long, really. Don't worry,
I haven't let the reception desk go to seed. Go to seed!
I love the illustrations.
Yeah. I'm quite pleased with the carrot.
She looks quite cheeky, doesn't she?
And it's all very carefully worked out to maximise energy levels.
You're going to feel on top of the world.
It's like that feeling when you fall in love for the first time,
but over and over again!
-I know that feeling.
-I tend to fall pretty easily.
Oh! Ah, OK. Right.
Ben, obviously, I am very flattered,
but I'm afraid I am going to have to let you down gently on that front.
-I'm happy to help you with your journey into raw food,
but it will have to be on a purely platonic basis.
I just want to be very clear about that from the outset.
Right. Well, I'll leave that with you.
Any questions, just let me know.
No, honestly, it's really good of you. I appreciate it.
But that's it - no more talking about nursing,
or doctoring or anything at all work-related.
Tell me about Jimmi.
Nothing to tell, really.
I bet that's not true.
Will's told me a few stories.
Has he? You two really get on.
I adore him.
You know when you meet someone and you just click?
As if you've known them forever,
and you just want to be with them all the time?
Yeah. Looks gorgeous.
Grandad, leave me alone. I don't want to talk to you.
I'll be back later.
Jade, is that you?
SHE MAKES FOOTSTEP NOISES
Oi, oi, oi.
-Where is she?
Now don't cheek me, son!
Maurice, I didn't touch Jade, yeah?
-You better not be lying to me, son.
-I'm not, I swear.
Bradley, I'm going to put him through his paces.
In the ring! In the ring!
-Come on, I might be able to help.
-Please, just leave me alone.
It must be tricky, living with your grandad,
tying to find places to be with your boyfriend.
He isn't my boyfriend.
Is your grandad right? Are you in some kind of trouble?
I'm not pregnant, if that's what you're asking.
-Are you sure?
-Yes, I'm sure, because I haven't had sex.
I'll probably never have sex in my entire life,
just like I'll never enter an official fight,
like I can never do anything.
Why on earth not?
I don't know what to have now.
Well, this is excellent.
Did you go to the new deli?
They've got a marvellous range of meats.
You could do with some of that in your salad, Valerie.
No, because then it wouldn't be raw.
Parma ham is cured, not cooked.
Well, I can't have it. I can't have anything cured, processed,
tinned, we just don't need it.
These ingredients might not look like much, but they're
carefully selected for optimum nutrition and energy release.
My mezze ingredients have been carefully selected
for optimum nutrition and taste!
Right, well, I know where I'm going. Anybody want anything?
Oh, yes, get me a hot chocolate with extra cream.
Valerie, do you want Karen to get you some protein?
You raw vegans need to be careful about protein.
I'm fine, actually. Thank you, Heston.
-And, look, I have got some protein?
Rather you than me.
You can put your back top on.
Your grandad said you've been sleeping a lot.
But if I lie still with the windows open, it burns less.
And how long has this been going on?
Well, I got a little rash on my shoulder straight after Mum...
It used to come and go and it was fine, I didn't mind.
In a weird way I thought it was like...a reminder of her.
-I'm not mental or anything.
But then I got another patch, and then another,
it just kept spreading.
Why haven't you seen a doctor sooner?
Because it's embarrassing. I'm a proper freak, aren't I?
Of course not.
What's wrong with me?
I think you're suffering from a condition called
It's essentially heat rash, but, from what you're telling me,
this has become chronic.
-How have I caught this?
-You haven't caught it.
It's brought on by heat or sweat.
Sometimes it's triggered by anxiety or stress...or even grief.
You must miss your mum.
I am so sorry, Jade.
Why haven't you told your grandad what you've been going through?
He's doing his best but the only thing we can talk about is boxing.
Now he's ruined that as well.
-He's entered me into a fight.
-In a proper fight they don't wear tracksuits, do they?
I can't walk into a boxing ring looking like this, can I?
No, honestly, I'm fine.
Trust me, this is insane.
I'm not really much of a dessert fan.
So, Jimmi, how do you get your kicks?
-I do OK.
I won't take no for an answer.
OK, you win.
-Hmm. Yeah, that is really good.
There are other symptoms in severe cases - coughing, wheezing,
fainting - even anaphylaxis, but that's rare.
-Can I box?
-I don't see why not.
It's important that you don't exercise on your own though,
just for the time being.
It's really not that bad.
You have got a lot going for you.
I'm a school dropout living with my grandad
and my body's covered in scabs.
What about this boy?
There isn't a boy.
All right, there is, but nothing's going on.
I mean, yeah, I like him.
But what's the point?
No-one would want me like this.
It's really not as bad as you think.
Take my advice, Jade. Boys, boxing - life is out there to be lived.
If you want something, you have to go out there and get it.
But the fight - I can't get up in front of everyone like this.
Well, that's up to you.
What would you do, if you were me?
Come on. Come on, boy.
Come on, what's the matter with you? You having a day off, son?
Having a day off, are you?
Son, you've got no fight in you!
I'm trying, Maurice. I'm just tired.
-Go easy, Maurice.
You all have it far too easy, you lot.
Cameron, come on, show us what you can do.
Higher! Come on.
Thanks so much, Jimmi.
-Everything Will said about you is true.
-Yeah, glad to help.
And, as a bonus, I had a great time.
-Yeah, me, too.
Oh, sorry. Erm... I didn't mean for that to happen.
-No, that was totally inappropriate, wasn't it?
-You're so funny! Listen, I'll see you soon, yeah?
Hit it! Hit it, come on!
-Of course you can.
-I can't. HE COUGHS
Come on. You're such a big man, get up and show me.
Grandad! Grandad, what are you doing?
Stop it! It's nothing to do with him. It's me!
What do you mean?
The thing I've been hiding...
I don't understand.
-What you looking at?
For pity's sake, Valerie, have one!
No! No, thanks.
I'm absolutely fine
It's Grandad, can you hear me?
Is she all right?
-Take it easy.
Oh, you scared the life out of me there.
-I don't know what I'd do if anything happened.
Can you give us some space, please, guys, yeah? Cheers. Easy, yeah?
So what's going on, love?
I'm all right.
I went back to see the doctor.
I've got this skin thing.
She's given me some tablets to try.
-What about him?
Nothing's going on with him.
We kissed, that's all.
Sssh! I'm 16, grandad.
I can have a boyfriend if I want.
But he's not - my boyfriend.
And he's done nothing wrong.
What were you doing to him when I came in?
We were just training.
You know your grandad, proper slave driver.
-Look, I'm sorry about that.
I just got a little bit carried away, that's all.
Don't worry about it.
-How are you feeling though, you all right?
-Yeah I'm fine.
Was proper scary when you hit the deck like that.
I've got this...condition.
It can make me faint and stuff.
-You can still box, though, right?
Hang on a minute. I think we should take it easy for a while.
I'm going to cancel your fight for a start.
No! Look, I'm going to do it.
The doctor said I can and I want to.
I want to fight.
-Cup of tea, Valerie?
-No, no, thanks.
I'm just looking for a top-up for my lemon water.
Oh, of course you are.
Cup of tea, Ben?
Yes, great. Actually, no! No, thanks, just hot water.
Oh, has Valerie recruited you to her regime?
It's not a regime, it's a lifestyle.
Valerie's kindly helping me try out a raw eating plan.
Actually, Valerie, I wanted to check.
There's a few things on the list, I'm not actually sure what they are.
Ah, mystery ingredients. Let me have a look.
I've always been very interested in healthy eating.
Well, I'm not sure this constitutes healthy eating.
Oh, come on, you sound like Al.
-I don't even think it's clinically safe.
I had a patient a few weeks ago, a boy of 12.
His parents wouldn't cook his food as they thought it
depleted the life force.
No, actually, there is scientific evidence to prove that
cooking reduces the nutritional value.
Yeah, you see, they believed all that. They were a good family,
thought they were doing him a favour.
-I diagnosed him with rickets.
You have to be very careful when you embrace a new lifestyles.
You may not get the nutrients you need.
Well, yes, of course you have to be careful with children.
But it's different with adults.
Tell them, Ayesha! Ayesha has felt fantastic on it, haven't you?
Said she's never had so much energy!
Yeah, er...about that.
I've....I've actually stopped.
You...? You've stopped?
But I made that juice for you just the other day.
I didn't want to say anything
because you've got so obsessed, and it was a bit awkward,
but I like hot food, Valerie, and carbs, and chocolate.
Yeah, but you can have...
Cacao nibs, I know. Gross.
I'm not really obsessed, am I?
Yeah, you are, and it's getting a bit boring.
I just... Look, it's not catching or anything.
-I just want you to know, you won't catch anything...
By training with me, I mean, not by doing anything else.
God, this is embarrassing.
Embarrassing? You want embarrassing?
I've got embarrassing.
Check this out.
You know, like Ali - float like a butterfly?
It seemed like a good idea at the time and it wasn't...
And now I've got to walk round with this on my chest for the rest of my life.
-Yeah, you can stop laughing now.
-It don't matter, though, does it?
-Now you ready? You ready?
One, two. One, two. One, two. One, two.
Valerie, I thought you were going to bring
the repeat prescriptions through. Is she OK?
She's been like this all morning.
She's been away with the fairies. Valerie!
Oh, no, no, no, no.
It's all right, I've got it.
-Can I help?
-No, I can manage.
It's just a bit of water. Look.
-The repeat prescriptions?
What's the matter now?
My poster is coming down already. Just...
Valerie? Are you all right? You look really pale.
Valerie?! Come on!
-She just keeled over!
Valerie, can you hear me?!
Hail, good Yodreth! Thou art a sight for sore eyes.
Ah, mine host!
You don't remember me, do you?
You don't know me.
Here you are, Friday night, cleaning.
Well, someone's got to do it, haven't they?
It's no wonder you're in a dry spell.
No, stop! Get away from me!
The Mistress of Valexion.
