Docker Maurice Glennon cannot understand why, after several weeks in bed following a fall, he is not getting any better. However Patsy identifies the cause as an infection sustained whilst he was in a Japanese POW camp, a discovery she knows only too well having been interned herself in a camp where her mother and sister died. Young Irish couple Phoebe and Declan Doyle arrive in the area, having fled from home as she is Protestant and he a Catholic. The birth of Phoebe's child, though ultimately successful, is difficult, causing her to consider it a punishment for crossing the religious divide. Meanwhile the Turners consider adoption and Trixie goes on a date with the handsome young curate Tom Hereward .
