As more and more villagers sign up for New Trefelin, Prem is left isolated.
Basil starts a cunning charm offensive, dining shopkeeper Sian, hoping to get her on side and influence others; He tells her that everybody can have a new home if they give him the deeds to their old property. At the same time Robert suggests to Prem that they can be partners in the new surgery. Prem also signs a reluctant Owen off pit-work with suspected heart disease whilst Megan tells the doctor that she is pregnant but wants to keep it from Emlyn. Basil also puts pressure on mine safety officer Graham to close the pit to make way for his venture.
As Owen's corpse is brought to the surface Robert feels guilty for giving him the amphetamine pills and is horrified that Basil planned the explosion. Confronting his brother he learns that there is no New Town, the whole exercise is a scam designed to allow the construction of a motor-way, whose planners are paying Basil to clear the village. Prem discovers that Robert was struck off in London for prescription misuse and, with Megan, persuades him to admit the truth about his brother's plan. Dan inadvertently scuppers Basil's dirty dealings whilst Emlyn realizes that Graham caused the explosion on Basil's instructions and the Thomas brothers are arrested. The village gathers to celebrate Megan's happy event and Ceri's pools win - which proves to be rather less than ten thousand pounds.
At the mine Prem, Emlyn and Owen are trapped deep underground following an unexplained accident.
1966: Flash Basil Thomas and his quieter brother Robert, a doctor, sons of the late mine owner Wilfred, return to Trefelin from London. They charm the locals by buying rounds in the pub and then throwing a lavish party, at which they reveal their plans to build a new town with modern amenities. This includes a health center, giving Prem - already struggling to cope with an overly efficient new receptionist - to fear for his job. Emlyn, now married to Megan, is worried that she is depressed but she cheers up when old flame Robert visits her.
