Further details

It's Pat's 'Death Day' and he prepares himself for his family's annual pilgrimage to the site of his demise.

But, realising that Alison's 'gift' makes her a conduit between the dead and the living, he begs her to pass on a message from the other side - a plan complicated when Pat realises a shocking truth about his marriage.

Meanwhile, Mike struggles to come to terms with his bathroom-based paranoia, and Kitty tries to find out where babies come from.
