Letting agencies specialising in housing benefits now find themselves on the front line. In the North East, ex-pub landlord Rob McKenzie has found his own way of dealing with tenants who abandon properties leaving behind a trail of destruction and owing thousands of pounds in rent. Young agent Caroline is new to the job and finds herself drawn into tensions on a street in Hartlepool, where one of her tenants is causing problems for the neighbours.

When scans reveal a potentially fatal tumour in her skull that is growing rapidly, Noel tries something he has never attempted before; using state-of-the-art technology to design a custom-made 3D milled implant to replace the part of her skull affected by the bone cancer. Noel has to perform delicate surgery, cutting through Molly’s skull to remove the tumour which is next to the brain and replace the missing piece with a custom-fitted titanium mesh. And Jane brings in her four-year-old Norfolk terrier Archie who is suffering with a bad limp. Noel regularly treats elbow deformities but Archie’s is the most extreme case he has ever attempted with an elbow replacement.
