Alan suggests that Amy has a coffee with Usha, but Amy pleads tiredness. Later on, she helps Alice at the farmers’ market. By her own admission, she isn’t much use. Alice comforts Amy about her heartbreak over Carl, and Amy admits that her afternoon with Alice has done her good. Back at the Vicarage, Alan is hurt that Amy spurned his drink offer in favour of going to the market. He offers to cook a special dinner, and eventually Amy demurs.
Later on, Alice remarks to Lynda that higher prices means sales are down. When Lynda suggests the dip in sales might be due to Brian’s dairy scheme rather than the prices, Alice is affronted. She suggests that Lynda takes up the matter with Brian, not her.
Yesterday’s phone call to Brookfield was merely Oliver arranging to help on the farm. David thinks the anonymous call was a one off. He briefly returns to the house during the afternoon, but on returning to his tractor David immediately phones Ruth. David has found a newspaper carefully placed on his seat, an article about the assault on Adam uppermost. Ruth wants to phone the police, but David isn’t so sure. Ruth points out that someone has been watching him, waiting not just to spook him, but to warn him.
