Series 8, Episode 5 - From The Mouths Of Babes
James is teething: nothing seems to be working, and nobody is getting any sleep. In desperation, Martin and Louisa agree to try Mel Hendy's suggestion of amber beads. They appear to be working, until James gets a bead stuck up his nose.
Mrs Tishell seems to be having a delayed onset of mourning and is "speaking to" Clive. Bert tries to offer advice, which only leads to Mrs Tishell shutting the pharmacy, inconveniencing everyone.
After receiving a large potential order of 'Large Whisky', Al tries to put together the still, with no luck. Al goes to Bert to ask for help, and Bert couldn't be more relieved to see him, as things were getting very tricky with Caitlin. But they will need to get Ruth's approval to go ahead.
Local artists, Lily and Walter O'Donnell are preparing for an upcoming exhibition. Walter puts Morwenna on the guest list after he sees Martin for his eye infection. Since Mrs Tishell has closed the pharmacy, Morwenna offers to deliver Walter's medication, but when she does, she finds a very ill Lily.
Louisa persuades Martin to go and speak to Mrs Tishell. He is the only person who she will listen to. Mrs Tishell reads more into it than Martin intended but does agree to reopen.
Louisa has further problems to deal with at school, when she meets Toby, Angela Sim's nephew. His parents think he has ADHD, but have left him with Angela whilst they are working abroad. Angela tries to juggle moving her surgery, looking after Toby and setting up a mobile veterinary clinic. Toby falls ill with Scarlet Fever and is sent home to rest. Toby infects Angela with lobar pneumonia, which Martin discovers when she collapses whilst out walking her dogs, and has to treat Angela in her surgery.
