Denise and Alistair successfully treat Barry’s ferret and then share some celebratory cake. They chat about the forthcoming ‘Borsetshire Veterinary Nurse of the Year’ award which Jakob’s nominated Denise for. Alistair’s encouraging when modest Denise feels she doesn’t deserve it.
At Berrow, angry Neil tries to pin an evasive Brian down. He tells Brian that he’d been worried about Chris as they hadn’t heard from him for a couple of days. Now he knows it’s because Brian’s threatened to tell the tax man about Chris’s cash in hand payments. Although Brian tries not to get involved, saying it’s not the time or place, Neil’s having none of it. He tells Brian he won’t regret telling him exactly what he thinks of the way he’s treating his son. Brian’s a bully trying to frighten Chris into keeping his mouth shut – not to mention kicking him in the teeth when it was revealed that Brian had propped up Chris’s business when he was in trouble. Brian tries to calm things down saying they’ve all said things that shouldn’t have been said, but Neil cuts him short. People have warned him about Brian in the past – he’s not to be trusted either as a husband or caretaker of the land. Neil used to give Brian the benefit of the doubt but not anymore. He wants nothing more to do with him apart from on the most basic level – he can no longer stomach being around someone who’s so completely rotten inside.
