Storyline

In 1968 Ruth and Paul are told that his low sperm count makes it unlikely they will have other children. Upset,Ruth leaves the village and meets some students,with whom she gets stoned at a party though she turns down the offer of sex with a lad called Brian. Eddie becomes more and more convinced as he talks to Amy that Alice is indeed a ghost and not an imaginary friend,locating news of her death in the local library archive. In 2010 Nisha gives birth to a daughter,whom she names Alice. Ruth stays on to help and hears evidence of a poltergeist. Scott tells Nisha that,in his teens, Mark had a fling with Olive Runcie,who would seem to be an elective mute,speaking when it suits her. Written by don @ minifie-1
