Do Not Disturb (Episode #407Z)

KQED Plus: Fri, Oct 27, 2017 -- 7:00 PM

To solve her farm's money problems, Aunt Joan starts a small bed-and-breakfast business. Her first guest, unexpectedly, is another local farmer, Ted, who has also got into financial difficulties. Initially they're a good match, but Joan soon finds that Ted is far from the perfect guest. Pauline's suspicions are confirmed when she steams open a confidential letter addressed to Martin and discovers his contract offer for the London job. Suddenly insecure about her own future, she confronts Martin, who offers her no reassurances other than to write her a reference. Martin deals with the victim of an accident without hesitation, proving to both himself and Edith that his blood phobia is completely cured, and he is now fully able to be a surgeon in London again.
