Tom's annoyed that Brian's keen on his ham idea - he wanted to develop it at Bridge Farm, thinking Brian wouldn't go for it. He can't wait for Hannah to arrive on Sunday. Brenda would love to be there, but realises there's another panto rehearsal then.

Later, Tom visits Peggy. They chat about the summerhouse, and Peggy tries to be positive about how she's doing. Jennifer calls from Hungary. Tom tells Peggy to ask about Marshall but Jennifer hasn't met him yet.

Mike and David are in the Bull before the panto rehearsal. Mike needs to get out of the cold at Willow Farm. Lynda arrives and wants to talk beanstalks. She tells them Kenton's still ill, so she'll be standing in.

At the rehearsal, Lynda has difficulty reading Kenton's notes. David takes full advantage. He tells her she's dropped a page, so she bends down and David manages to hit her with his ladder. Mike congratulates him on his perfect comedy timing, while trying to suppress a cough. They continue, but Mike struggles to deliver his lines between sneezes. It must be the dust at Willow Farm. But Brenda feels his forehead - he's burning up. Lynda refuses to believe it, she can't lose him!
