Jill visits Elizabeth at Lower Loxley who tells her that Lily seems to be thriving at Borchester College but Freddie doesn't seem to have settled in as well as his twin. Jill takes refreshments to Freddie who is revising for his Maths re-sit. He's been getting help from Iftikar, his old tutor.

Elizabeth reveals to Jill that she and Iftikar were very close to having a relationship. But it was just too soon for her after Nigel's death. Elizabeth is adamant she doesn't have room for a man in her life right now.

Susan is surprised that Lynda has asked Kate to be her assistant director on the Christmas show. Lynda has arranged with Kate to embark on a cast recruitment drive at the imminent Apple Day celebrations. Lynda suggests Robert could shoot Susan's family portrait. He is a very competent photographer. Susan begs to differ. Not after last year's calendar debacle.

Helen is starting a new batch of cheese. Pat comments that she looks very contented. Helen agrees that she is. After much thought, Helen has decided not to make a complaint to the police about Rob. She feels she's got to get her life back. Show less
