New art teacher Erica perturbs Louisa with her unorthodox methods and Martin - when she moves in next door to him - though Martin establishes that her fainting fits may play a part in her odd behaviour. Dr Timoney also becomes a patient when she collapses at the wheel of her car and begins to act strangely whilst an American tourist and devoted elderly wife also give Martin problems. Bert returns to being a handyman after his failed whiskey-making venture and Penhale's offer of a career move to Exeter is much affected by his growing relationship with Janice. Written by
