Social Services tell Deirdre her interference in the Brian Roscoe case has made extra work. They accuse her of trying to make a name for herself on the Council. Deirdre is horrified to hear that Roscoe assaulted his father-in-law and is in police custody. Mike sets up another card school. Don is pleased. Deirdre refuses to let her nasty experience put her off helping others. Mike, Don, Jack and Alan play cards. Alan and Jack step out of the game when big money is laid down as stakes. Mike raises the stakes too high. To get the £1,000 he needs to see Mike's cards, Don throws in the keys to his taxi. He is horrified when Mike wins the game.
