When Jimmi is called out to certify a death, he begins to suspect that the "widow" might have something to hide, in today's visit to the Midlands-based health centre. At the same time, another woman reports her husband missing to Eva.

 

When it turns out that the "widow's" husband is still very much alive, and the man at the bottom of the stairs is the missing husband, Eva and Jimmi conclude he was having an affair – but how did he end up at the bottom of the stairs?

 

Elsewhere, Melody asks Julia and Nick if she can have a couple of days off to take JJ home to their parents, as he is out on bail. Nick is concerned about her work and her future as a doctor, but Melody tells him that she doesn't care at the moment.

 

Vivien, meanwhile, is back from her intensive driving course and has passed her theory test. She has also managed to wangle a cancellation and is due to take her practical test the next day. Her colleagues take her to the Icon to celebrate, and Vivien has a non-alcoholic cocktail.

 

She later returns home in high spirits but is unaware that two boys have broken into her house – and one of them has a knife...

 

Jimmi is played by Adrian Lewis Morgan, Eva by Angela Lonsdale, Melody by Elizabeth Bower, Julia by Diane Keen, Nick by Michael McKell, JJ by George Rainsford and Vivien by Anita Carey.

 

Please note: Doctors takes a short break and returns to BBC One on Monday 7 July.

Press pack
   

Gary Lineker presents live coverage from Vienna as Austria meet neighbouring rivals Germany in a potentially decisive Group B encounter.

 

Austria are attempting to avoid becoming only the second host nation to fail to progress from the group stage, but the size of their task tonight was underlined by a 3-0 home defeat to Germany in February. They haven't won this fixture since Germany was unified and much will rest on the shoulders of captain and play-maker Andreas Ivanschitz.

 

Germany are record three-time European champions but haven't reached the knockout stages since they last won the competition in 1996. But in the likes of Michael Ballack, Miroslav Klose and Jens Lehmann they have experienced players who excel in big games.

 

There are also highlights of the other group game between Croatia and Poland, which is shown live on BBC Three simultaneously to this game.

 

For viewers with access to the Red button, there is live match coverage with alternative commentary and rolling highlights, as well as extensive highlights of every game, all the goals from the tournament and highlights of classic matches from previous years.

 

Coverage of the match is also available on the BBC HD Channel.

Sharon Hunt in Cardiff in her most difficult
challenge to date

Fashion guru Mary Portas is in Cardiff this week and encounters her most difficult challenge to date, as she continues to reinvigorate five more fashion shops that have lost their way. Kelvin Evans is the owner of a boutique and bar called Floyds, and he has very firm ideas about the retail business.

 

The shop, however, run by his partner, Sharon Hunt, is a fashion car crash, selling cheap, end-of-line clothes and tacky accessories. The female inhabitants of the Welsh town seem to be giving the shop a wide berth, and Kelvin can't understand why. When Mary, not one to mince her words, attempts to explain, the first of many heated exchanges takes place.

 

Mary is convinced they should be targeting the fashion-conscious 20-something crowd, and asks them to have a go at styling Miss Wales and her friends for a night out – which turns out to be a complete disaster.

 

Events come to a head and Mary decides she can no longer work with Kelvin. Will Sharon step up and start to take control, and does she have the confidence and ability to turn Floyds around?

Irish Catholic Church, the late
Father Michael Cleary

Father Michael Cleary was one of the superstars of the Irish Catholic Church. A multi-talented clergyman, who recorded two No. 1 singles, topped the bill at the Sydney Opera House and had his own TV and radio chat shows, he was one of the most popular figures in Ireland. Young film-maker Alison Millar was thrilled when he agreed to let her follow him for a year as her graduation film, and she grew close to Fr Michael, his housekeeper, Phyllis, and her son, Ross.

 

Soon after Alison finished filming, Fr Michael died, and the world discovered that Phyllis and Ross were, in fact, his lover and son. Alison's footage was suddenly in high demand, but she put it in her parent's attic and let it lie.

 

Fifteen years later, in this moving film for Storyville, Alison revisits her archive and tells the story of her year with the superstar priest. She meets up with Ross and discovers he's never come to terms with his upbringing, spending years drowning his sorrows with drink and drugs. Together they decide go on a journey to try to understand the real man behind the celebrity persona who wowed and then shocked the whole of Ireland.
