Ruhma snaps into action stations when Tanya goes into labour at home.

Deborah isn’t happy to see Ruhma arrive – they could both get in trouble if the NMC find out.

Zara’s chuffed when a patient gives a gift, thanking Zara for her astute diagnosis and crediting her with saving his life. Feeling like the world’s greatest doctor, Zara unwraps the gift – to find a stuffed owl.

Later, Zara finds out that she was given the wrong gift. Too late as she has sold it online.
