Will it all get too much for Dot when she falls down stairs at home?
Dot's had a hard few months, well more like couple of years, with looking after Jim, running the launderette and rushing round making herself useful for the Church. She's no spring chicken anymore, and next week we see the result of all this hurrying and scurrying.
In a rush to get over to the Launderette, Dot loses her footing and falls head-first down the stairs. Nobody's around to help, and Dot lies unconscious at the bottom of the stairs while Jim calls out from the living room.
