Series 4, Episode 1
Hotel Babylon is due to close down and Juliet Miller, nicknamed "The Undertaker" by the gang, has been appointed by management to oversee its demise, as the drama set in a five-star hotel returns for a new series.
In a last-ditch attempt, Tony desperately pitches Babylon to a wealthy Asian businessman, whose daughter is meeting a Bollywood star and her future husband for the first time in an elaborate introduction ceremony at the hotel. However, the deal goes into freefall when Tony refuses to meet his demands. To top it all, a terrorist threat in London brings the city to a standstill and some stranded airline passengers bound for the airport seek refuge in the hotel.
Among them, to the amazement of both, is Juliet's ex-husband, Sam. They haven't seen one another in five years and, soon, old tensions re-surface. Will Sam and Juliet overcome their problems to ensure the safety of their "stranded guests", and can Tony and the gang find a way of saving the hotel from closure?
Meanwhile, receptionist Anna is eight months' pregnant, in total denial and refusing to tell anyone who the father is. So all bets are on below stairs as the gang attempts to be the first to discover the daddy's identity!
