  • Robert pleads with Megan to leave Trefelin with him, but it’s down to Prem to discover the real truth about his past. Dan helps Kamini find out the real story behind Basil’s plans for the new Trefelin, leading Prem to confront him about the brothers’ real reason for returning home. (en)
  • With Trefelin under quarantine, supplies are getting low. Despite Prem's attempts to piece together the evidence, the real source of the outbreak is still unknown. As one by one the miners who played cards in Ceri's barn fall victim to the virus, it seems that Dan knows more than he is letting on about how he fell ill. Meanwhile, Megan is helping Emlyn keep law and order, and between them they come up with a plan to get more food from the next village. It seems that things are finally getting back to normal, until Mary arrives with some terrible news. (en)
  • Reporters gather at the surgery to hear that the outbreak of smallpox in Trefelin is finally under control. But Prem is not convinced that they have managed to locate the real source of the disease, and so the village is still not safe. Reverend Todd struggles to maintain his authority, not least over his wayward daughter Verity, whom he has locked away from prying eyes. When her guilt-stricken lover confides in Prem, he begins a frantic search for Verity. Local copper Emlyn makes the most important declaration of his life, and Megan has to make a difficult decision. (en)
  • When a rather unusual van arrives in the village, the driver, a well-known rugby player, creates a real stir and it looks like the doctor's luck is changing for the better. However, Richard Sharpe, the mine manager, is furious and does his best to turn the locals against the doctor and his X-ray van – although his wife, Sylvia Sharpe, is rather taken with the new driver. Meanwhile, Gina gets some shocking news and the crucial green leather diary belonging to Dr Elwyn goes missing... (en)
  • Trefelin is deserted as Prem waits for a vaccination unit to arrive from Cardiff. But Reverend Todd is still determined that only he can save the village, and wastes no time in telling the villagers that God has stepped in where Prem's medicine has failed. The community seems oblivious to the deadly outbreak that it faces, and Prem seems to be losing the fight. While Prem tries in vain to round up the villagers for immediate vaccination, Todd discovers his daughter Verity's affair with a married man and decides on a severe punishment. An exasperated Prem decides to call in the law to help him. And his battle with Todd for control over the village reaches a head when suddenly another man falls seriously ill. (en)
  • Sian decides that farmer Ceri might be worth ensnaring with her feminine charms – at least if he really has come into some unexpected money – and Robert is doing his best to woo his old girlfriend Megan, much to Emlyn’s alarm. The Dawkins are not the only couple to fall out, as Prem confronts Kamini over a job offer from Basil. Prem’s anger is cut short, however, when he discovers that, against his advice, Owen has gone back to work at the mine – with disastrous results. (en)
  • Dr Prem Sharma finds himself under pressure to track down and save Dan before it is too late. Facing the threat of an epidemic, Prem has to battle both the ineptitude of the health authorities and the ignorance of locals. When Trefelin's evangelist minister, Herbert Todd, refuses to be vaccinated and openly defies Prem's attempts to contain the virus, the conflict between them threatens to divide the village. While Prem and Todd battle for the hearts and minds of the villagers, Sergeant Emlyn Dawkins has been up all night composing a love letter to the unsuspecting Megan. How will she react when the previously tongue-tied copper puts his innermost thoughts down on paper? (en)
  • As the suave doctor Robert renews his acquaintance with childhood sweetheart Megan, older brother Basil ingratiates himself with villagers eager to exchange their house deeds as a deposit on a swanky house in his new development. Aled and Daf clumsily conjure an ambitious plan to end Basil’s ambitions; Robert, meanwhile, surprises Prem by offering him a central role as part of his new medical centre team. But Prem has a more immediate problem when, late in the day, a forlorn Megan calls at the surgery with some unexpected news. (en)
  • The Indian Doctor's wife, Kamini Sharma, is still desperate to leave the village of Trefelin. But as she tries to escape, she finds herself becoming the only person who can help local tearaway Dan when he gets into trouble. With the previous doctor's green leather diary found, Prem's friendship with Megan deepens as she translates it from Welsh into English and they realise that Dr Elwyn's diary holds vital clues to the deteriorating health of the local miners. When Prem questions the mine manager Sharpe about the miners' health, Sharpe tries to persuade the doctor that health hazards are just an unfortunate part of a miner's job. Meanwhile Gina, Prem's receptionist, is falling recklessly in love with Tom... (en)
  • A lot is going on behind the scenes as the fete preparations continue. Prem Sharma is preparing to leave the village and Kamini, his wife, goes in search of Dan, who is missing, but finds more than she bargained for. Megan pleads with Prem to stay and help the miners fight for justice and for their health. Meanwhile, Sharpe finally gets the promotion he's been chasing. Matters come to a head as Prem takes on Sharpe once and for all in front of the whole village at the annual summer fete... (en)
  • Colliery manager Richard Sharpe is still desperate to find a mysterious green leather diary left behind by Prem's predecessor, Dr Elwyn. But his plan to pay local street urchin Dan Griffiths to steal the diary from the surgery backfires when Kamini catches Dan red-handed. While Kamini confronts Sharpe, Prem has an emergency of his own to deal with when he's asked to make a very unusual house call... (en)
  • Basil’s continuing drive for villagers to exchange their deeds for new houses is reaping great results, and a visit to Sian’s shop suggests he may be in for an unexpected investment from an unlikely source. Robert takes advantage of Emlyn’s absence by taking Megan for a drive... a drive, he hopes, might rekindle their teenage romance. Below ground, the trapped men each battle with their demons, and when their situation takes an even more serious turn, their lives are left in the balance. (en)
