Hullraisers. Image shows left to right: Toni (Leah Brotherhead), Craig (Perry Fitzpatrick), Gloria (Felicity Montagu)
Palmed off by Nina in favour of her niece, Rana tries to throw herself into work to cover her hurt. However, when a new drugs gang rolls into town, the finger of suspicion begins to point at her own mother - leaving Rana rushing to work out what's going on before dull policeman Pickles gets there first. When Grace gets a part in a play, she wants Craig to be her chaperone, rather than Toni. Thrown into the dog-eat-dog world of kids' theatre, the normally placid Craig has to rise to the challenge of becoming a stage dad.
