This episode focuses on the ups and downs of family life and how people pull together to get through them. Pam, who's 53, is rushed to A&E after suffering a suspected heart attack. As doctors try to establish whether it definitely was a heart attack or another underlying condition, Pam's daughter Meg talks about how her bond with her mum has strengthened over the years and how she helped her mum when she and Meg's dad decided to get divorced. Ten-year-old Cora is rushed to St George's after being thrown from a horse into the low hanging branches of a tree. Her mother Sharon rushed to the scene and says 'she had blood all over her face... and... this piece of wood sticking out just under her eye.' Doctors work quickly to assess whether or not she has also injured her neck, spine or brain.
Fifty-one-year-old painter and decorator Gary is rushed to St George's after falling ten feet from a ladder. As Dr Rob sends Gary for urgent CT scans, Gary's dad Don talks about Gary's bad luck in love after two engagements were broken off: 'it broke his heart and he's never been with anyone since'. Gary's best friend and colleague John reflects on the importance of their friendship: 'he's a member of the family, he's seen my daughter born... never misses out on anybody's birthday.' But when Gary's scans arrive, Dr Rob becomes increasingly concerned about fractures in his back, pelvis and coccyx.
This episode focuses on couples whose loving relationships are tested by distance and unexpected illness. Forty-year-old Adrian is escalated from majors to Resus after crashing his bike into a car. Adrian recently moved back to London to set up a new life for his family, but at the time of the accident his wife Lili and daughter Luna are 1400 miles away in Montenegro. Consultant Melissa is concerned that Adrian may have a serious chest injury, so he's sent for a full CT scan. As concern grows that Adrian has a collapsed lung and may need emergency surgery, he makes a heartfelt phone call to Lili.
This episode focuses on three male patients who are at different stages when it comes to growing up and taking responsibility for their actions. Thirty-year-old Chris has sustained a potentially life-threatening wound in a shooting. It happened during a game with his friend Jack, who fired the inside shaft of a biro pen, from an air rifle, deep into Chris's abdomen. Meanwhile, college student Lennon has injured his head after jumping into a door frame while kicking a balloon.
