Otto and his anaesthetist Charlie Enderbury are called upon to perform a lucrative but illegal abortion, which shocks new nurse Angela Wilson. Angela holds this over Otto to gain his help with buying time for Maureen Mulligan, a patient being forced into a loveless marriage. At her wedding gown fitting Jean confesses to Otto's wife Elizabeth and Lily, who is married to Charlie, that she is pregnant by Richard, hence the wedding. Charlie meanwhile has an interview for the chair of anaesthesiology but comes up against rival Dr Mehta and feels he has failed when Otto, part of the interviewing panel, has to leave to help Angela. Jean miscarries on the morning of the wedding but asks Otto to keep it quiet and the ceremony goes ahead. Inspector Mulligan visits the hospital and recognizes Otto, with whom he was in the army in Cyprus some nine years earlier. Written by don @ minifie-1 See less
