Matt tells Dolly about Jack's past relationship with Jackie's mother Pat Merrick, and how she married Tom despite the fact he was troublesome. Paul Hilleley vists the woodland where Sharon Crossthwaite's body was found in 1973. He is met there by Judy who says she has never heard of Sharon. Paul takes her to The Woolpack for a drink.
