Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) is to be left on the critical list after downing Jim McDonald’s stash of prison booze.
A desperate Peter will be seen tracking down Jim’s illegal alcohol, only to be found later in an awful state by the jail’s ‘landlord’, Jim (Charles Lawson). But will Jim alert the guards and get his fellow prisoner to hospital – or will Peter’s life be in the balance?
“Unbeknownst to Jim, Peter has followed him and seen him get his booze out of the cupboard for another prisoner,” explains Charles Lawson. “Jim finds him on the floor of the kitchen unconscious, but to everyone else it looks like Jim has actually saved Peter’s life by calling the guards to get help.”
