Full SummaryEdit

Inspector Crossley from Whitby arrives at the police house to see Nick, but is angry to find the police house being used as a doctor’s surgery by Kate. Crossley then goes to Ashfordly station where he's been expected expressing his annoyance about the situation. Blaketon and Nick both assure him however it's just a temporarily situation until Kate can find a new surgery. Crossley also informs Blaketon of some major changes in the Ashfordly area, which will include a far bigger beat for Nick. Kate in the meantime goes out with her old friend Sally, who's also a GP for a drink and a general chat. Sally tells Kate of a job that's going in Whitby, but Kate isn't interested. Sally then puts Kate's name forward to a Dr. James Radcliffe who owns his own practice in Whitby. Radcliffe writes to Kate offering her a job with his practice and Kate is then tempted to take him up on his offer, but Nick however is reluctant to leave Aidensfield. A coach trip meanwhile is organised to hear Gina sing at a club in Whitby and so a day trip is made of it and a good time is had by all. Claude with Alfred's help gets lucky on the fruit machines at the amusement arcade, while Phil gets into a spot of bother with the owner! Nick and Kate find themselves helping a young girl on the beach who can't find her father. Nick however then spots a man in trouble in the sea and calls the lifeboat out, but it’s to late and the man, who turns out to be the girls father - drowns. Claude also gets into trouble when the Inland Revenue finally catch up with him, demanding a huge amount of cash that he owes due to his many years of tax evading! And Blaketon takes Graham out for a day in an attempt to get closer to him.
