Harry Gibbs’ wife Dora has been missing for six weeks and thinks the Sally Ann may be able to help. Harry’s brother in law wants to know why Harry keeps talking about his wife in the past tense and thinks he may have “done her in” however Harry’s daughter Linda knows exactly where her mother is. Dora has moved across town and is trying to make a new life for herself.

Meanwhile over at the hostel James Pope is still making a nuisance of himself thanks to his alcoholism. Major Cartright wants to see him moved on but Mary persuades him to give Pope one more chance.

Sam Kydd gets a bit more of a role this week, so far he has spent most of his time at the counter of the hostel – he is not too pleased when Gibb’s recognises him from his days in prison.
