Series 1, Episode 2 - The Exorcism Of Abdulla Khan

Count Abdulla. Abdulla Khan (Arian Nik)
Abdulla wakes up in a bed in his own hospital, unable to recall the previous evening's events. He's soon in for a shock, and it'll take a lot to convince his mum Bushra that he's not turned to alcohol.

Further details

Something's not right. Abdulla feels out of it, he's developed inexplicable allergies and is having insatiable cravings at work. What's happening to him? Elsewhere his mysterious bus stop assailant, Kathy is looking for him - worried that she may have passed something on that could spread around the community. After coming face to face with a stray piece of garlic naan, it's starting to become clearer what ails the Muslim junior doctor. But when a religious ceremony goes wrong, our hero is left with little time before Kathy catches up with him. Perhaps cousin and wannabe Shafi might save the day?
