This week in Shieldinch…Alasdair’s hidden past triggers painful memories for Patrick whose world is turned upside down by the revelations; AJ and Annie’s wedding anniversary proves unforgettable for all the wrong reasons; and Drew is suspicious when a classmate is attracted to him.

Molly and Liz are shocked when a poison pen letter arrives at the charity shop accusing Alasdair of being a paedophile. Alasdair proclaims his innocence, explaining that himself and colleagues at a boarding school were involved in a child sex abuse trial. Alasdair was exonerated but one of the victim’s mothers has been obsessively hounding him for over three decades. While Liz desperately wants to believe Alasdair, Molly is sceptical.

At the Tall Ship, Patrick sympathetically listens to Alasdair’s story. That is, until he realises the nature of the accusations which trigger painful memories from his care home past.

Tormented by his own hidden abuse, an agitated Patrick arrives at the birthday party Scarlett has thrown for him. As he drinks, his mood worsens and he lashes out at his family and Angel.
