It's the Go-Getters' team chase in Ramsbury. Elizabeth is apprehensive about their chances of success but this does nothing to dampen Nigel's spirits. Shula and Caroline perform well but Alice cuts across Nigel, causing him to fall. Nigel's body may be bruised, but his enthusiasm remains healthy. Elizabeth suspects Alice was showing off to Christopher. With the team coming in 23rd overall, Nigel's a bit disappointed. Elizabeth's just pleased he's ok.

Now that Will has agreed to be Abbie's godfather, Hayley has to tell Emma that this means neither she nor Ed can attend the christening. Emma seems hurt but understands, and thinks this will be a healthy experience for Will. She'll be sorry to miss the christening but it's good that Will has said yes.

Matt's had a response from his mother's nursing home, and she is happy to receive a letter from him. He's been advised to take a gentle approach, and Lilian is keen to help but Matt has other ideas. He's never been good at writing letters so has made a decision. He'll drive to the nursing home tomorrow to see his mother face-to-face. Lilian's welcome to go with him. It's up to her but he's going anyway.

Episode written by Simon Frith.
