There is something different about Dr Lewis. Obviously, she has had her hair cut but it’s not that. There’s something else. I keep watching her but I can’t work it out. Could it be her now visible, slender neck and shoulders? Her skin looks so soft. Maybe it’s the way she tilts her head slightly when she turns it. I don’t think the way her mouth relaxes into a warm, easy smile has changed. I hadn’t realised how kind her eyes were.

Dylan seems to be paying her a lot of attention, too. He has been asking his most intelligent questions and wants her opinion on everything. ‘Thank you very much, Dr Lewis,’ he says every time she answers. Dilys has sensed his interest and is getting annoyed with him.
