Second Chance

May 08, 2013 on Channel 4 at 9:00 PM


The series continues with a moving and emotional episode about head injuries and the power of unconditional love. Forty-seven-year-old Chrissie was crossing the road near her home when she was hit by a motorcycle. The side of Chrissie's face took ... (more)the brunt of the impact and the main concern is potential bleeding behind the eye or in the brain. Her husband Tim struggles to get to the hospital: he's stuck in the traffic jam her accident has caused. Chrissie and Tim first met over 20 years ago. It was love at first sight and Tim proposed almost immediately. But three weeks before the wedding, Chrissie changed her mind, Tim moved out and he never came back. Four years ago Chrissie got in touch looking for closure and they decided, finally, to get married. But could Chrissie's accident jeopardise their second chance of happiness? John is in Resus with a suspected stroke; fortunately, King's specialises in caring for stroke patients. He's confused and doesn't know what year it is. But in spite of his fears about memory loss, John's irrepressible sense of humour shines through. Meanwhile, Benedict, who's 22 and a gifted musician, has come into King's because of his drinking problems: he drinks over 70 units of alcohol a day. Damian, Benedict's dad, finds it difficult to watch the destructive nature of his son's alcoholism; can a father's unconditional love overcome such a terrible disease?
