Other People's Children

Martin and Louisa don't seem to be having much success with their therapy, so Dr. Timoney advises that they should try and take things back to the beginning of their relationship, and plan a date, and try not to let their busy lives get in the way, even though Louisa is also trying to plan James Henry's first birthday party. A last-minute request from Danny, Louisa's ex-boyfriend, brings him and seven children from London camping on Ruth's farm, supervised by Al and Bert, but they need some children from a local school to show them around: Louisa feels she has to help her old friend out, even though this further adds to her load. Martin is not at all pleased when Danny proceeds to try and intervene in their troubled relationship. Things are going slightly better for Mrs. Tishell and Clive, though Clive worries that he will not be able to keep up when Mrs. Tishell invites him back into the bedroom, with disastrous consequences. Things don't start off too badly for Martin and Louisa at the restaurant, but when Danny calls saying one of his children, Jake, has gone missing, date night is effectively over. When they finally find Jake, they also find Bert's whisky still, and Penhale is keen to lay down the law to Bert. Martin and Louisa are left wondering if anything will ever go right for them, when Martin uncovers a health scare at James's party, that makes all the guests leave very quickly: not even Ruth's birthday cake can keep them there.

The Shock of the New

Louisa's return further raises questions around their relationship: in order to stay together, perhaps they need to spend more time apart, living in separate houses until they have worked through their issues. If anyone is going to be able to help Martin change, it may be Dr. Rachel Timoney. With her return to school imminent, Louisa also has to find a new babysitter to look after James Henry, and reluctantly decides to offer Janice a trial.

It's Good to Talk

Martin has decided he will be the one to move out of the Surgery to allow Louisa the space she needs, which she does really appreciate. Louisa is intrigued to meet Martin's therapist, Dr. Rachel Timoney, but is not quite so happy when Rachel suggests that they should have therapy as a couple, instead of Martin having it on his own. Aunt Ruth, however, manages to persuade Louisa that being a part of it will allow her a chance to defend herself if she needs to. Mrs.

Education, Education, Education

Louisa and Martin have their first therapy session together -- though neither of them was expecting that they would be given homework. Peter Cronk, now 15, approaches Louisa to ask if Martin will allow him to do work experience at the Surgery. Louisa is surprised, and impressed, when Martin agrees to this: perhaps he is learning to change after all. Morwenna is not quite so happy about it when Peter starts trying to boss her around in the Surgery.

Control-Alt-Delete

Martin reaches his breaking point with being followed around by Buddy: he resolves to find a vet to have him put down. Morwenna, and eventually Louisa, manage to persuade him that it isn't quite that simple - a vet will not put down a healthy dog just on Martin's say-so. They intervene and find a new home for Buddy with Angela Sim, a local vet, though Martin will have to take him there himself. Martin is not impressed by Angela's alternative approaches to medicine, even if it is veterinary medicine, but at least he has managed to offload Buddy onto her.
