Episode Summary

EDIT
Thief in the Night
AIRED:
Kate comes out of hospital with baby Sarah. The atmosphere is extremely sullen and Nick neglects his work, which doesn't go down well with Blaketon. Nick receives reports of prowlers hanging around at night, but he doesn't do anything about it. The next day Mr Copeland complains to Blaketon about Nick's inefficiency and about a tank of petrol he has had stolen. Blaketon is on the warpath and unaware of Kate's condition, goes round to the police house and tears a strip off Nick. Kate realises she can't keep it a secret any longer so Nick finally tells Phil the bad news. Blaketon feels awful for what he said and goes back to apologise. Kate is finding it difficult to cope and asks Nick to take her for a picnic in the hills. But this has disastrous repercussions when she goes down with pneumonia, which immediately worsens her condition. Emotions are running high, and by the time Kate dies everything comes to a head. After the funeral, Nick sees David Stockwell with a petrol can, realising it was he who has been thieving the petrol he aggressively tries to make an arrest. Alf has to pull Nick away and tells Blaketon he's never seen Nick lose his temper like that. Nick's on a short fuse, and ends up blaming Maggie for not spotting Kate's illness sooner. At the end Nick renames baby Sarah, Katie.moreless
