Ruth tells David that Jill has ordered Phil's 'light bucket' telescope at last. Fortunately Phil had marked a couple in a catalogue so Jill just picked the most expensive one.
Usha's wearing a beautiful engagement ring. They're planning a harvest wedding at St Stephen's and Rachel has agreed to take the service. Usha's only dread is that nobody will be there, although she hasn't entirely given up hope of Satya coming. Ruth insists the church will be packed with all her friends. Alan plans to tell the congregation at next week's AGM.
It's time for Taylor to take the stand. Taylor's adamant that his relationship with Kathy was above board and the sex was consensual. He's got an excuse for everything - his name changes, how he came back to Ambridge to talk to Kathy to find out why she was spreading this terrible lie, how he always seems to be unlucky in love. The prosecutor works hard to highlight the similarities in Claire and Kathy's circumstances and to wear Taylor down, calling him an inadequate man who preys on vulnerable women. Eventually it seems to work and Taylor loses control. Banging the dock, he shouts out that he hasn't done anything. They're evil lying bitches.
