Driving Mr. McLynn

Louisa calls Martin to her new home after she has a dizzy spell while moving furniture. The doc urges her to slow down and is appalled to discover that Louisa has interviewed for her former teaching job.

Aunt Joan is involved in a car crash with the McLynns, an elegant elderly couple. When P.C. Penhale rushes to the scene and tries to impose his authority, he's ignored by both drivers. Martin later finds Mr. and Mrs. McLynn behaving oddly, and makes an astonishing diagnosis.

Edith visits Martin to seek advice on her medical research, and Martin reveals that he's applied for a prestigious surgeon's job in London. Eager to confront Martin about his attitude towards her and the head teacher position, Louisa heads to his office and is taken aback to find Edith already there.
