Kim's dream of an uneventful night shift is quickly scuppered.

Further details

Kim's dream of an uneventful night shift is scuppered when an emergency admission and the surprise nocturnal appearance of an emotional Den put paid to any thoughts of a quiet kip.

Meanwhile, Dr Moore's dinner arrangements are spoiled as she too finds herself back on the ward. A happy resolution to the night's problems looks possible - but on B4, things never run smoothly.
