Although she likes Deirdre, Denise wishes she'd move away so she and Ken can get on with their life. Deirdre decides she owes it to Samir to make the most of her life. Alma decides to give up being a consultant as Mike isn't keen. She feels her marriage is more important than her work. Whilst locking up the surgery, Josie is threatened by a youth who refuses to let her leave. He slaps her about as he searches the surgery for drugs. Mike is pleased when Deirdre accepts the role of caretaker of his flats. Don turns up at the surgery looking for Josie and the youth escapes, leaving a badly shaken Josie. Jack and Vera go to the solicitor insisting that they have no money and can't take on Cliff's debts. Jamie fears he'll end up in care if they're made homeless. Josie allows Don to take control of her and willingly stops at No.5 with him. The Duckworths are stunned to learn they've inherited Cliff and Elsie's holiday insurance - £30,000.
