  • Bea learns about her condition.

    5.5
    After initially going missing for a short time, Lizzie turns up at Meg's place, denying anything to do with the fire when questioned a few days later. Worker wise, Erica announces she does not want Colleen as acting Deputy Governor if Jim continued with his job search elsewhere, and Jim is furious with Janet for keeping her past a secret, which upsets her. Bea collapses, which is ignored by Colleen, and Bea confides with Judy her fear, and later she agrees to see a doctor, who assures her it is not a tumour, but she will need a kidney transplant.moreless

    • This was the first episode to be screened by new ITV station Westcountry Television, airing on Tuesday 5 January 1993. Westcountry had replaced TSW four days earlier and continued from where TSW had left off. Westcountry screened the series twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday nights initially, and at times screened the series three nights a week, completed the series in October 1997. Westcountry were the only one of the new companies that began broadcasting in 1993 to reach episode 692.

    • There's lots of wobbly acting from Val Lehman here, and every scene featuring Jim and Janet is tedious in the extreme. Still, Sandy's shaping up to be a great character.
      Brian James, who guests here as Dr Kennedy, later plays officer Stan Dobson.
