But Charles feels no better for having cut loose. His son Ethan is still dead and the case into his hit and run is still a non-starter according to the police.

As the dad gathers his things, he accidentally knocks over his drink. Cleaning up the spill, Charles clocks a piece of paper that makes his heart stop.

Later that day, having forensically examined the evidence, furious Charles becomes convinced the Milligan couple were responsible for mowing down his lad and sets out to confront them.

Seizing a chance to get Caleb into his car, Charles insists on giving him a lift into Hotten.

Wary Caleb senses something is up and soon finds out his instincts were right when the vicar stops the car and gets out, seemingly overcome with emotion.

Ranting and raving about than, Charles sets off on foot towards a woodland, followed by concerned Caleb.

But as Caleb tries to comfort Charles, the dad turns on him with a face like thunder.

Clutching the incriminating invoice for repair work on a car, seething Charles shoves it in Caleb’s face and accuses him of running down his son…

As the cellmates talk, Les gives Matty advice on how to act in front of the other prisoners.

Putting his trust in Les, Matty reveals he’s transgender. Les has no axe to grind but warns him that other prisoners are unlikely to feel the same about Matty’s differences.

Back in the village, Paddy’s excited as he’s organised a double date with Mandy and his best mate Marlon and his wife Rhona.
