The characters are slowly drawn together. Robert uses Debbie's amnesia for his own purposes and more than cross words fly through the air. Mr Jelly is entertaining the folk at an old people's home when a phone call from Mr Jolly plunges him back into danger. Maureen, meanwhile, learns the truth about David while out shopping for a barbeque; and Mr Lomax has acquired a new home help after being betrayed by Michael.


This episode is known on the DVD as 'Robert'
