Director:  Charlie Palmer
Writer:  Andrew Rattenbury
Buddy is missing and Louisa has been putting up leaflets looking for him.  She later spots him at the top
of the village and chases him into the local undertaker’s house.  Turns out Buddy has made friends with
her dog and has been spending a lot of time there.  Martin is expecting a doctor to do his GMC
assessment, but it all goes horribly wrong when the fake patients can’t remember what their ailments
are and Martin terminates the assessment.  Penhale is investigating stolen equipment from a local farm.  
His predecessor, Mark Mylow, shows up in the village to investigate a string of such crimes and they
work together on the local case.  Penhale solves the case by noticing that their tractor has been
recently repainted and they are making a false report for insurance purposes.  Louisa continues to
worry about her fertility and Martin runs some tests.  Ken, the pub owner shows up and tells Bert and Al
that he wants to sell the pub.  They try to convince him to sell it to them in installments, and he accepts
their offer.  Ken isn’t feeling well and goes upstairs to rest.  When they bring the contract up for him to
sign, they discover he has died in his bed.
