that her secret will come out

When a so-called spiritual leader called John turns up at the survivors' home with his group of followers, some in the house are suspicious of his motives, in the penultimate episode of Adrian Hodges's post-apocalyptic drama series.


Charming and eloquent, John is a preacher with a unique perspective on the new world, but the family's opinion of him is split. Some find comfort in his message, while others are deeply distrusting of his motives.


Linda, a woman in John's group, is pregnant, and Abby allows her to stay until the baby is born. Anya fears that she will be forced to reveal the fact that she is a doctor if there are any problems with the birth. Worse than that, she picks up on some unusual remarks made by John, which make her concerned for the group's safety.


Al is much more positive about John's group. He spots a pretty woman called Louise and uses his charm to seduce her. He is feeling much more like his old self – until he realises that Louise isn't as innocent as she seems.


Meanwhile, Anya's fears are realised when Linda experiences complications and John's serene façade starts to crumble.


As the situation reaches crisis point, Anya is forced to confront some harrowing truths about her own past, putting her relationship with Tom on a new footing. Abby and the others also realise that, through a misguided act of kindness, they have put themselves in terrible jeopardy.


John is played by Kieran O'Brien, Linda by Claire Keelan, Abby by Julie Graham, Anya by Zoë Tapper, Al by Phillip Rhys, Louise by Louise Dylan and Tom by Max Beesley.

Indian Food Made Easy Ep 6/6

Anjum Anand cooks up a spicy feast in Bradford in the last programme in the series

programme in the series

Spice queen Anjum Anand concludes her journey around the UK to discover the regional flavours of the Indian subcontinent, with a trip to Bradford to meet Jessica, who, as a volunteer chef on board a classic Yorkshire Dales steam train, is no stranger to mass catering. Jessica and her team have never given the passengers who dine on the train an Indian menu. However, with Anjum's help, they are keen to give it a go.


Bradford is home to a large Kashmiri community, which inspires Anjum to teach Jessica a menu of delicately flavoured Kashmiri dishes.


First up is traditional Rogan Josh – rich, hearty and full of flavour, which Jessica will serve on the train with a pilaf rice cooked in a seasoned broth. Anjum takes Jessica to the restaurant kitchen of Mohammed Aslam, a local Kashmiri chef, who shows them how to make this rice dish perfectly.


Back in the kitchen, Jessica discovers how to make scrumptious peppers, stuffed with spicy paneer – an Indian cheese. The dessert, meanwhile, is a childhood favourite of Anjum's: angel vermicelli topped with orange cream.


With a packed train eagerly awaiting their first onboard Indian meal, Jessica's tiny kitchen faces a real challenge. As always, Anjum's calm composure ensures that the passengers enjoy the food as much as the scenery.
