Alistair tells Alan that Adam's helping Shula organise this year's single wicket competition.

Usha's really distressed. The Echo has run a negative story about her engagement to Alan. Usha is desperate to uncover those who are against their forthcoming marriage. The article mentions an anonymous letter sent to the diocese. Alan reveals that the only other person aware of the letter is Shula. Usha wants to confront her.

Later, Shula and Alistair discuss the story. Shula is horrified. She spoke to the reporter but it's clear her words have been twisted. Shula's convinced Alan and Usha will know she's the 'source' being quoted. Alistair tries to reassure her that Alan would never hold it against her.

Eddie asks Ed to drop George's wellies off at Emma's. To Eddie's surprise, Ed adamantly refuses and then announces he might not be here for Clarrie's birthday meal on Sunday - he's just decided he's going to Fallon's gig on Saturday night.

Eddie receives some incriminating information from Baggy about Malcolm's past. Eddie wants Will to search Malcolm's car. When Will refuses, Eddie takes the keys and uncovers a syringe, gloves and a suspicious flask. He tells Will that they have found the poisoner.

Episode written by Simon Frith.
