Miranda arrives at the Mill, impressing everyone. Valerie has her suspicions – do leopards ever change their spots?

Rob has to solve the mystery behind a violent attack on a pensioner.

Miranda calls Bear, wanting to know how to impress Zara, but is Miranda being flirty? He tells Valerie Miranda’s coming in and they really got on when they met. Valerie is suspicious but says at least she’ll be away at her cancer check-up. In the hospital, she finds out there’s been an admin error and her appointment isn’t today after all!

Miranda pitches group consultations to an initially hesitant Zara but wins her round. Valerie comes in with food, offering Miranda a tuna sandwich. Miranda politely reminds her she’s allergic to fish. Bear and Zara debrief – Zara quite charmed by Miranda.
