Storyline

Martha visits old flame Sean McBride in prison. He is charged with shooting dead gangster Jimmy Monk after Monk's family demanded protection money to allow him to open a night club in their territory. Despite an obvious bias she represents him with Caroline prosecuting though she comes close to exposing her position and needs Reader to support her. Billy visits corrupt solicitor Micky joy in custody after which Martha takes him to one side. Harriet is happy to back Amy in her sexual harassment case against him but Martha urges him to admit that his prostate cancer negates any sex drive. He does not want to reveal the fact however.
