David arrives home at the Coach House and Barbara asks him what he thought of her book. David says it is very well
written and the hero in the book is the only one in the book who is without jealousy, yet he destroyed by the jealousy
other people feel towards him. David tells Barbara that she seems to find this main character admirable.
David says Eddie Lee went to prison because of other people's jealousy, he could be the main character. Barbara
tells David that he will never believe her when hse says nothing happened. David says he did believe her until he knew
the strength of her feelings. He says he finds it hard to like her book because the main character is someone he doesn't
like. "You do want to hurt me," says Barbara. "Why should I want to hurt you," says David. "I'd rather you
answered that," says Barbara.

postcard which he got from Kath and Glenda reads it out to Kevin. It says that Kath and Arthur went to the hotel where
Kevin and Glenda spent their honeymoon, and the people said they remembered them and that they had never seen two people more

been going wrong. She says she loves him more than ever so where did it all go wrong. Kevin says it didn't
and takes Glenda's hand.
Diane Hunter notices Gilbert Latham still in reception and he tells her that he is waiting for Mr Hunter so that he can
ask him about the calendar. Diane tells him that Mr Hunter is in Birmingham. Gilbert Latham tells Diane that
the moment Mr Hunter walks through that door he is going to accidently bump into him. "You ought to be careful.
He's bigger than you," says Diane.
Diane notices the magazine which Gilbert Latham has folded under his arm and asks him if it's anything interesting.
Gilbert tells her that it's only a photographic magazine, she woudn't be interested in it. Diane asks him why he is
blushing and Gilbert Latham says he isn't. Diane snatches the magazine from him and opens it. She gasps as she
see's that it is full of nude models. Gilbert Latham tells Diane that it's art and Diane says she hopes he doesn't expect
her to pose like that.

Ron Brownlow visits Iris Scott at her flat. Mavis Hooper tells Ron that Iris hasn't left her room for two days.
Ron goes to Iris's room and asks her if she has been to the job centre. Iris says not yet, she wants some time to get
herself sorted out.
Barbara tells David that she has been thinking about what he said about her book, and asks him to be more specific.
David says the two main characters in her book get married too quickly, it doesn't happen like that in real life.
Babara says it does, he and Rosemary married soon after they met. David asks her who told her that because he certainly
didn't. Barbara says she can't remember, she must have overheard it. David says she knows something important
that she doesn't want to tell him. "It's your imagination," says Barbara, anxiously.
Ron Brownlow tells Iris that he will help her out with money but Iris says she doesn't want that. She says she
does really nasty things and she hates herself for doing them. She says she is a mess. Ron gently lifts her chin
up and kisses her but Iris pulls away. "So that's what it's all about. I should have guessed," says Iris turning
her back on Ron. Ron picks up his jacket and walks to the door. "Ron!" calls Iris. "Ron. I'm sorry.
Please Ron. Honest," she says. "Don't go like that. Not angry," she says. Ron walks back to her.
Gilbert Latham comes into the office and finds Miranda Pollard there. He asks her if Mr Hunter is available and
Miranda tells him that David is in Birmingham. "Shall I make an appointment for you Mr Latham?" asks Miranda.
She tells Gilbert that she saw the photos he took of Diane Hunter and was very impressed. She says she is glad
they met because she is a keen photographer herself. Gilbert Latham says perhaps she would like to help him. He
tells Miranda that he is going to Diane's flat this evening to take some more photos and perhaps she can come with him.
Ron Brownlow asks Iris Scott why she did what she did to Arthur. He says he heard his fathers side of the story
and he can't judge it on that. Iris tells him that it's hard to live with someone who hates you. She says Kath
tried to help but she had to be on Arthur's side, and Glenda spread rumours about what she was doing in London. Iris
tells Ron that she had to teach Arthur a lesson, she wanted to hurt him.
Later that evening Mavis Hooper goes to see Iris Scott in her room and asks her if she wants to come and watch television.
Iris says she has got a lot to think about. Mavis Hooper asks Iris if she would like to come to the pictures with her
sometime in the week, tomorrow night maybe. Iris says she would like that.
