About this programme

Ormerod faces a taxing time when a prison van overturns on the moors. The driver is killed, a guard is seriously injured and one of the convicts escapes, while the others are rounded up and taken for treatment at the hospital, where Ken Hopkirk recognises an old friend. Goodwin fails to diagnose a serious case of post-natal depression - an error which almost ends in tragedy when the mother is found standing perilously close to a cliff edge - and student nurse Samantha Beaumont discovers she has an unexpected love rival. Penultimate episode in the rural medical drama series, starring Robert Daws and Paul Fox.
