Vivien buys some flowers and a card for Jimmi, to show that everyone at work is thinking of him, as the Midlands-based medical drama continues. When Jimmi arrives at work, however, he's clearly struggling to come to terms with Eva's death. Unaware of what's happened to Eva, Heston puts his foot in it by being jolly in front of Jimmi. He later makes amends with the staff by toasting Eva's memory, but Jimmi isn't there. After receiving a mysterious phone call he leaves the surgery.


Later, in the park, Jimmi sees Matt, who points towards the bandstand – where Eva is waiting. They talk about how hard it is for Jimmi to pretend Eva is dead but, when he asks how long she has to keep up the pretence, she tells him she has to leave for good so that she isn't found by Jack's gang and killed. They are both devastated and say a final, heartbreaking goodbye.


Vivien is played by Anita Carey, Jimmi by Adrian Lewis Morgan, Eva by Angela Lonsdale, Heston by Owen Brenman and Matt by guest star Chook Sibtain.

Breaking The Rules celebrates the 1976 punk fashion revolution, instigated by Vivienne Westwood, as BBC Two continues to fly the flag for British design.


In London, the unique collision of art schools, nightclubs, street style and multiculturalism forged a microcosm of radical fashion cultures and a new creative expression in clothing had begun.


Westwood was the trailblazer in the "rebel" look, and tonight's episode features key figures associated with that look including Vivienne Westwood; John Galliano; Alexander McQueen; Malcolm McLaren; Siouxsie Sioux; and Stephen Jones.


From her design studio, Westwood talks about her controversial ideas and the innovative cutting techniques that have electrified the fashion world ever since she burst onto the scene. Now one of the most influential figures in the global fashion industry, Westwood describes her journey from shopkeeper to rule breaking designer.


Westwood's daring fashion inspired a generation of young designers including John Galliano, whose initial success made him an overnight sensation. In 1996, Galliano was given the prestigious role of Creative Head at Christian Dior. From his base in Paris, he still looks to London for inspiration, and says: "It's unique. It's on the street. It's in the attitude... it's lovely."


Following in Galliano's footsteps, Alexander McQueen was signed by the couture house Givenchy. Renowned for his notorious and shocking designs, McQueen discusses the headline stealing "Highland Rape" collection and "bumster" trousers which have defined his career.


These fashion rebels, with their revolutionary techniques, are still causing a stir today ensuring Britain remains at the forefront of design innovation.
