Episode Summary

What Are You Afraid Of?
Lindy hates her new job and she despises Nathan, the bookshop's paraplegic owner. When she accuses him of being a loser and 'giving up' on life, he fires her. Now she has no job. Back to the wall, she convinces Alan, her TV producer to give her a shot at her own show - problem: she has to pay for the pilot. In desperation, Lindy goes to the only person she knows who might lend her the money - her old boyfriend, William. But William is angry that she has turned up only for money, and rejects her. Lindy hits rock bottom and faces her old demon, alcohol. She takes a full glass of whiskey to Nathan at the bookshop and asks him for help. Nathan and Lindy share their deepest fears, and Lindy stumbles upon a great idea for a TV show. She books the studio, puts on the show and uses Nathan as her first guest. It's a success - Lindy is back! William's worst fear comes true when he is moved from Accident and Emergency to the Oncology department. He can't bear dealing with terminal illness every day. The move coincides with a visit from his ex-girlfriend, Lindy and the arrival of his oldest friend, Phil, who tries to shake him out of his depression. What William doesn't know yet, is that Phil is suffering from cancer himself. Tina is still grieving for Sam, and tries to block out the pain by snorting coke and partying with Corin. But the downward spiral leads to recklessness, and she loses her part-time job nannying two well-to-do children. Miserable, Tina resorts to more drugs, and more Corin. Tess visits Matthew's home and meets Rico. He gives her a photo of Matthew to keep, and she treasures it. Tim has made himself at home at Julie's and surprisingly, Julie is okay with that. He's so attentive to her needs, that Julie gathers her courage and asks him if he will sleep in her bed with her - just sleep - she needs the company. He does.moreless
