    Foreign Bodies

    A year later, Prem and Kamini welcome her mother Pushpa from India. She is shocked that the couple give respite to Dan Griffiths, a young village boy who has a father troubled by drink, and mind receptionist Gina's baby Nye since Tom left to live in London. On the same train is Megan, returned from visiting her son and local policeman Emlyn is soon smitten by her. The village has a new vicar, zealous ex-missionary Herbert Todd, whose wife has left him to look after rebellious teenaged daughter Verity on his own, and who refuses the baptism of baby Nye as his parents are not married. Whilst Todd is giving a slide show of his time in Africa, Dan falls ill with small-pox, supposedly carried by Pushpa from India. After she scolds him, he runs away.
