Nick receives an invite to a celebration of Bob's life and assumes that his former cancer patient has died, as the Midlands-based medical series continues. It's only when he's giving his speech at the event that he realises Bob is actually still alive.

 

Ronnie, meanwhile, goes to the Mill with Bracken and wanders off into the road. Nick sees her and saves her from being crushed by a van. Ronnie is eternally grateful and they finally put their differences aside.

 

Nick continues to practice walking unaided by his sticks – his surprise for Caroline. Whilst on the phone to her outside the Mill, he is distracted by a boy playing with his football. The boy kicks the football into the road and Nick goes to retrieve it for him, but he doesn't notice a lorry hurtling towards him...

 

Nick is played by Michael McKell, Bob by special guest star Shaun Williamson, Ronnie by Sean Gleeson and Caroline by Rae Baker.

BBC THREE Tuesday 7 October 2008
Jack – A Soldier's Story
Tuesday 7 October
9.00-10.00pm BBC THREE
       

When award-winning reporter Ben Anderson spent two months with a unit of Grenadier Guards in the Helmand Province in southern Afghanistan in 2007, he met some extraordinary men. One of them was Lance Corporal Jack Mizon, a brave 24-year-old who has seen and experienced more than most men of his age. On his journey, Ben accompanies Jack as he faces an eight-hour battle with the Taliban. This one-off documentary also follows Jack as he returns to the UK.

 

Over three weeks, Jack lost one of his friends in a roadside-bomb attack and a suicide bomber hit the convoy he was travelling in – killing another of his friends. Jack was sent to a psychiatrist to talk through his experiences. The only way forward for him, though, was to try to stop thinking about the incidents and keep going.

 

After an incredible 81 days out on operations, Jack comes back to the UK where he serves in the Queen's Company of the Grenadier Guards. But Jack finds it hard to re-adjust to the routine of Army life back in the barracks. Within weeks, he's on punishment duty and gets involved in fights. He is then absent without leave and flees the country – only to come back to the UK a few weeks later and hand himself in to the police. Despite being awarded a Mention in Dispatches for bravery, Jack is demoted back to the ranks.

Teenager Tim Dawson's new sitcom continues its candid look into the outrageous world of a group of sixth-form students living in Abingdon, as they enjoy a final romp with adolescence.

 

Matt and Chloe are in the school play together and have to kiss. Chloe is excited, but Matt's nerves get the better of him. Chloe undergoes a sexy makeover to entice Matt but, when this has no effect, she and Matt together conclude he must be gay. Eventually, they discover he's not…

 

When Ollie gets his mobile phone stolen by a little girl, meanwhile, the shame affects his sex drive. Jas, however, takes steps to help Ollie regain his confidence.

 

Meanwhile, DK tries loads of stunts to buy his dream moped. He eventually gets enough money to fulfil his dream – just in time to crash into a newly "remasculated" Ollie.

 

Coming of Age stars five of the UK's top young comedy actors: Anabel Barnston, Tony Bignell, Hannah Job, Ceri Phillips, and Joe Tracini.
