The university's groundsman has been cleaning up graffiti for weeks and is stunned when Ruth reveals the artist's identity – his own son – as the drama set in a Midlands health centre continues. The father has been pushing his son to go to university when he actually wants to be an artist. Ruth helps the son set himself up to realise his dream.


Michelle flirts with Mike all day but he brushes her off. She is disheartened by his lack of interest and assumes he must be gay. Later, though, in the Icon bar, Mike tells Archie he just doesn't like a woman to be so full on.


Nick and Julia apologise to Joe for burdening him with so much work but Joe still seems weary. Meanwhile, Mal does some DIY around the surgery, but when he goes off on "business" without telling Julia, she becomes suspicious.


Ruth is played by Selina Chilton, Michelle by Donnaleigh Bailey, Mike by James Carlton, Archie by Matt Kennard, Nick by Michael McKell, Julia by Diane Keen and Joe by Stephen Boxer. Mal is played by guest star Ray Fearon.
