Series 1, Episode 5 - Housewarming Party

Caroline decides to have a housewarming party, inviting several of her hospital friends (and Angela). Sue takes Martin out clothes shopping for the party, and Alan decides to spice up his sex life by "kidnapping" Joanna.

Further details

Caroline decides to have a house-warming party, and it seems like the whole hospital staff are there: from admin to the surgeons to Sue White. In preparation for the party, Martin lets Sue take him shopping for an outfit, and ends up looking like "the love child of Wayne Sleep and Godzilla". This doesn't put Karen off however, as she still (unsuccessfully) tries to get together with him. Caroline is a bit luckier and manages to kiss Mac, Guy, Martin and even Sue! But which one will she choose?

Alan's luck is also in as Joanna decides it's time to spice up their relationship. Unfortunately for Alan, it involves wearing an itchy balaclava and having to sound like a cross between Marlon Brandon and Robert Kilroy-Silk.
