Neil wants Christopher's opinion on electronic simulators for the bells. It sounds like a good idea but Christopher assumes it'll be expensive.

Matt's having second thoughts about Norcap writing the letter to his mother. It makes him sound like a wimp. Lilian points out he's merely delegating the work. It turns out to be worse than Matt thought. They advise sending a very bland letter, giving his mother the opportunity to deny all knowledge. It hadn't occurred to Matt that his mother might not want to meet him, and it really matters to him, now that he's come this far.

Susan's beginning to think someone is deliberately flooding the market with forged IOUs. Christopher thinks it's funny but Susan's had enough.

The parish council meeting is disrupted by someone who's against the anaerobic digester, even though she has nothing to do with village life, and is hardly ever around. David can see a huge head of steam building up, all based on rumour and misunderstanding. Susan points out there are also some very real concerns. David reminds her that's why they're having a public meeting. But after tonight, he can't help thinking it's going to be utter chaos.
