Home Fires

Series 2 - Episode 4



It seems that as soon as an inhabitant of Great Paxford has a moment of joy, it’s immediately washed away in a tidal wave of misery.

Poor Pat (one can never refer to her as anything else), having found momentary happiness in the arms of a Czech soldier, now looks set for an eternity of torment at the hands of her abusive husband. At least Teresa’s relationship with the wing commander is taking a few hesitant steps forward.

Elsewhere, Dr Campbell is elated to get good news about his health, while David Brindsley and family are shattered to hear his injuries will prevent him from working.


Pat and Marek are reconciled, but when someone sees them together, their relationship is in more danger than ever. The Brindsleys come to realise the full extent of David's injuries, and Teresa faces letting go of the past when she is asked out. Alison fears the consequences of her involvement with the Lyons, Laura is spurred into action by some happy news, and Joyce and Erica work together on a first aid meeting.
