Martin learns that he is under investigation for rude and condescending behaviour with the end result
that he may have to go on a 2 week course to improve his people skills.  Pauline advises him that he will
have to find a new receptionist as she is returning to university to study nursing.  Bert Large thinks he's
struck gold when word gets out that a rare bird is nesting in the local cliffs so he borrows the police van
to offer guided tours.  Louisa Glasson's father Terry suddenly re-appears in the village accompanied by
his bi-polar friend, Jonathan.  Terry had left the village under a cloud when he was accused of stealing
money from the lifeboat fund but he has always maintained his innocence and Louisa remains his
staunchest defender.  Things get serious when Jonathan stops taking his medication and takes Martin,
Louisa and Pauine prisoner.
