Series 2, Episode 6
Harriet has split up with Lyndon, and Caroline has split up with Mac - but could complementary therapist Jake Leaf be the right man? Statham has won a caption competition so Joanna decides to put him in his place, but the plan badly backfires. The HR staff also get a visit from Kim's Turkish penpal.
Emotions are running high at the hospital for the staff, with Caroline splitting up with Mac so that he can be a proper father to Mackenzie and Harriet breaking up with Lyndon as she feels guilty for having an affair. However, Caroline appears to get over her split quicker than Harriet and goes on a date with the complementary therapist Jake Leaf (which did go well until a jealous Guy through his keys into Jake's head).
Alan Statham's emotions on the other hand are at the other end of the scale, as he is absurdly cheerful after winning a Consult That! caption competition in industry magazine Consultant Radiologist International with 100% of the votes (the fact this is only 7 votes doesn't perturb him). To try and stop him being so happy, Joanna and Sue come up with a plan which ends in tragedy, as Alan ends up battering Joanna's vertically challenged cousin to death with a stuffed heron. Joanna also becomes part of the murder when she helps Alan to throw the body into the hospital incinerator.
Martin's happiness is also short-lived, as although he had hired a private investigator who managed to trace his dad, he learns his dad has a rather unfortunate surname. Furthermore, a spiteful Joanna ensures that they can't meet even though they do pass each other at the hospital. Karen's happiness at making friends with Kim's Turkish penpal also disappears quickly when he compares her to Brian May from Queen.
