River City

BBC Scotland

Angus and Bob lie about the insurance scam

Bob's conflicted about his relationship with Ailsa

Angus's whiplash returns

This week's River City episode

Tuesday 21st October

 

This week in Shieldinch…the heat is on Angus and Bob as their lies about the insurance scam threaten to unravel; Bob’s conflicted about his blossoming relationship with Ailsa; and Kirsty and Finn’s ‘just good friends’ status is scrutinised.

Angus’s whiplash makes an unwelcome, and painful, return. While Angus suffers, Bob’s love life benefits as his relationship with the victim’s daughter, Ailsa, grows ever more serious.

However, there’s trouble in store when Ailsa’s dad Neil, the victim of the car crash, turns up in Shieldinch looking for Bob, and answers about the crash.

With his livelihood on the line as well as crippling insurance costs, Neil is desperate to piece together the missing details of his crash and he doesn’t disguise his fury for the other driver, little realising Bob and Angus’s role in the accident. Angus warns Bob to end his relationship with Ailsa before the truth is uncovered – for both their sakes.

Meanwhile, Ailsa and her mother, Annie, have their own secret to hide as they deliberately withhold details about the crash from Neil.

 
   
   

Later, with his heart at odds with his head, Bob goes to Ailsa’s for a romantic meal but it quickly goes awry when Angus arrives. Having received a letter from the insurance company with his and Neil’s details, Angus urges Bob to intercept Neil’s letter before it’s too late.

Elsewhere, Kirsty and Finn snub teasing about their relationship, insisting they’re just good friends. But when their night out ends with a goodnight kiss, it casts a confusing shadow over their friendship.

Angus is played by Scott Fletcher, Bob by Stephen Purdon, Ailsa by Charlene Boyd, Kirsty by Bobby Rainsbury, Finn by Sonny Green, Neil by Paul Nivison, Annie by Gillian Kirkpatrick.

 

Previously on River City: Tuesday 14th October

 

This week in Shieldinch…Liz feels the strain of caring for Malcolm and is at odds with Eileen over what to do for the best; Molly reveals a shock windfall to Scarlett; and Angus is far from happy with Bob’s new romance.

Malcolm’s dementia takes a turn for the worst, putting increased pressure on Liz. As the burden of caring for her husband begins to take its toll, Eileen finds an unlikely ally in Molly who urges her to get her house in order, while she still can. It gets Liz thinking and she considers assisted living as the answer to their problems.

Eileen doesn’t embrace the suggestion, admitting she’s frightened of losing them so soon after Raymond’s death.

And when Dr Dan reveals Malcolm’s recent delirium is due to a urinary infection, Eileen grows ever more resolute to keep her father in his own home. She pleads with Liz to reconsider – Stuart has just lost his father, she’s not ready to lose hers too.

 

Elsewhere, Molly reveals her surprise windfall to a shocked Scarlett - £50,000 of Premium Bonds. And Scarlett’s touched when Molly asks her to ensure her nest egg will be there for her in old age.

Angus grows anxious as he watches Bob and Ailsa’s romance blossom. Bob stays staunch when a prickly Angus reminds him they put her dad in hospital - if the truth is uncovered they’ll go to jail.

Liz is played by Eileen McCallum, Malcolm by Johnny Beattie, Eileen by Deirdre Davis, Molly by Una McLean, Scarlett by Sally Howitt, Angus by Scott Fletcher, Bob by Stephen Purdon, Dr Dan by Adam Robertson, Stuart by Aidan Doyle-McPherson and Ailsa by Charlene Boyd.
