    Roadtrip Nation [#1001H] Breaking Out of the Comfort Zone Joined by the common desire to get out of their comfort zones, a new team of Roadtrippers embarks on a cross-country journey to interview innovative Leaders who can provide insight on building a fulfilling life.

Peter Cronk, now 15, approaches Louisa to ask if Martin will allow him to do work experience at the Surgery. Louisa is surprised, and impressed, when Martin agrees to this: perhaps he is learning to change after all. Morwenna is not quite so happy about it when Peter starts trying to boss her around in the Surgery. Meanwhile, Mrs. Tishell is surprised by the return of her husband, Clive, and even more so when he tells her he wants to give things another go. Bert, after losing the restaurant and having nowhere to live except this new camper van, is looking around for other opportunities, but he is keeping everything close to his chest, and definitely away from the eyes of Penhale, who is trying to impress Janice. Louisa has to call Martin to help her when one of her pupils, Jessy, collapses during a school excursion, and together they rush Jessy to the hospital. Peter's work experience doesn't work out quite as well as he had hoped, though he is very grateful he did it when Martin helps him to successfully treat his mother, Mrs. Cronk. duration 46:02   STEREO TVPG

They intervene and find a new home for Buddy with Angela Sim, a local vet, though Martin will have to take him there himself. Martin is not impressed by Angela's alternative approaches to medicine, even if it is veterinary medicine, but at least he has managed to offload Buddy onto her. Meanwhile, Ruth finds out what Bert has been up to, in trying to make his own whisky, and he eventually persuades her to keep his secret. Clive is suspicious of Mrs. Tishell and who she might be cooking meals for, but decides to give her the benefit of the doubt so that they can really give their marriage another go. Penhale wants to ask Janice out, but only succeeds in asking her to a group BBQ at his place, and then has to persuade Al and Morwenna to come too, to make up the numbers.
