  1. Intervention

    At last Amber woke up and smelled the coffee - or rather the unpleasant whiff of rat. Yes, Lee was finally kicked to the kerb after months of subtle manipulation, quiet bullying and outright violence. As Amber said to him:'I do love you - but it's broken me'. It seems...

  2. Romance vs Bromance?

    Ah, Gordon, you shot yourself in the foot there with your fatherly protectiveness. Slyly setting up your pal Jack in a honey trap with flirty Iona, while you and daughter Hayley 'accidentally' bump into the two, was only going to lead to fireworks.

    Jack may not be able to resist flirting with anything...

  3. Little Bob lost

    Bob's stuck in a whirlwind of tangled lies, double-bluff and half-truths. No wonder he hot-footed it out of Shieldinch to clear his head.


    Paddy Adams was a bad one and that's no mistake, but sleeping with your sister's husband is not a good idea. We did actually feel a wee bit sorry...

    It's a sunny autumn day here in Dumbarton and we're excited, though a little alarmed, to see evidence of full-scale planning for Christmas episodes going on. Yes, Christmas in Shieldinch is on its way. The costume and art teams are being kept on their toes.

    Plus there's an unusual prop waiting in the...

  6. The wedding - but not as advertised

    With Malcolm as MC, a stunning dress and surrounding by beloved friends and family, Ruth's low-key wedding in The Ship was a romantic affair. Bling may have been lacking but the event was full of love. We've got lots of exclusive pictures from the wedding for you.

    Like real life, weddings in TV...

    Another winning turn from Mrs Carroll -Alison Peebles does such a good job bringing the sour-faced lady to life. Her snooty manner in the salon would've curdled milk. But the final straw was definitely Iona - and her comment about the lack of sleep at the newly-weds' house. That broke the camel's back...

    Who'd be a parent? Judging by the fraught exchanges between Murray and Fraser, and Andy and Sheila, it's a tough job and no mistake. Being a parent does seem to be, like Scarlett said, the hardest vocation of them all. But nothing could be harder than having to tell your beloved son that you're not...
