George’s friend, Kaz, arrives at the flat with a staggering request: she and her partner Lucy want to have a child, and they’d like George to be the father. George is warming to the idea – he’s always wanted kids, and he can be as involved in the baby’s life as he wishes – but he is wary: what if his condition is genetic?
Mitchell and Annie don’t approve of the new plan, but Mitchell is wrestling with a difficult decision of his own. A patient at the hospital, Leo, is surprisingly good company for a pasty older bloke who believes the 1980s were a golden age. But he seems a little too interested in Mitchell’s family and history – and he has a surprising request of his own in store for his new friend…
