Further details

Beth takes to her sick bed and Ian and Gordon pop over to give Eric a hand.

If there's ever a time that Beth is desperate to be left alone it's now - but on hearing about Beth's flu Christine turns up with soup.

The interruptions continue as Cathy and Colin arrive, suggesting all Beth needs is someone with a bit of personality to go and see her. Up and down the stairs like a yoyo, Eric tends to Beth's needs, reassuring her that nobody will disturb her. But the neighbours have decided Eric isn't coping, and it's a race to see whether a hot toddy or homemade soup will do the trick in nursing Beth back to health.
