Hullraisers. Rana (Taj Atwal)
After Craig's shock proposal, Toni flees the scene, leaving him without an answer. Much to Paula's annoyance, Toni shows up at the DIY shop where she works, causing chaos for her and her long-time colleague Brian. After Rana is mistaken for a strippergram during a death call, she has to deal with an onslaught of sexist "banter" from fellow officer Chris. Luckily, she knows just how to deal with it: ringing her mum.
