Series 1, Episode 6 - Tests

Martin is about to sit an exam (again) and is worried that he is going to fail (again). Harriet and Joanna both think they are pregnant so have pregancy tests, but their results get mixed up. Mac goes for a job interview to become a consultant.

Further details

Everyone's stressed out: Harriet and Joanna both have pregnancy scares (and unfortunately for Harriet, she's the one that's pregnant again); Martin is sitting his exams and is petrified he will fail and Caroline is horrified to discover just exactly what she got up to at the party. Mac meanwhile has an interview for a consultancy position, which doesn't go too well.
