Neil tells Hannah that he’s taking Susan away for a few days in the Cotswolds for their wedding anniversary. Brian appears unexpectedly at Berrow hoping to see Neil. When Hannah says Brian’s away for the weekend, Brian asks to use a spare desk. As he’s leaving, Hannah notices he’s left a document on the printer. Brian says it’s not his – but then Hannah sees it’s about the possible closure of Berrow. Brian says it’s confidential – but now Hannah has found out by accident it wouldn’t be ethical for her to keep secrets from Neil. Later when Neil rings, Hannah tells him everything’s ok and to have a wonderful weekend away.
Chris and Rex avoid Tracy in case she hounds them about cricket. Chris admits his life now is his work and Martha – if he can keep those plates spinning, he might just make it through the year. When Rex tells him he’s going on a date with Amy to the Bull, Chris says he had no idea Rex was into her. Later Alice chats to Chris about it. Chris says he can’t really see Amy and Rex as a couple. When Alice says they’re both young and good looking, Chris is surprised that Alice thinks Rex is. At The Bull Rex and Amy get on well and enjoy several drinks together. Later it’s clear that Amy didn’t go home with Rex, but ended up on Chris’s doorstep and in his bed.
