PlotEdit

Hilda tells Bet that she doesn't want her job back. She knows nobody needs her anymore and is no use to anyone. Mrs Lowther's sister calls on Hilda and asks her to visit Doctor Lowther with her as he wants to see her. Audrey doesn't like the way Ivy is going to have the grandchildren for Christmas. Mavis is outraged when Derek suggests that as they're being cast as lovers they may as well be. She refuses to lose her self-respect, although Rita is impressed. Hilda visits Doctor Lowther in Hartington. He asks her to keep house for him there and live in a flat attached to the cottage. She agrees. She tells Sally that she'll be taking good memories with her and leaving bad ones behind.
