Martin heads to London to meet with Robert Dashwood, who's leading the selection process for the prestigious surgeon job that he's applied for. Pleased that Martin has finally conquered his debilitating blood phobia, Robert is confident that he'll be hired in no time.
On the train back to Cornwall, the doc is annoyed to be seated next to one of his patients, a sheep farmer named Jim Selkirk. Jim falls asleep slumped onto Martin's shoulder, but never wakes up. He ends up dying of a heart attack.
Theo, one of Louisa's students, becomes ill in class. His parents are certain that their child picked up the illness during a school field trip to Aunt Joan's chicken coop. Martin cannot deny their claims without running tests so the couple announces their plan to sue Joan.
