The December skies are dark over Ambridge and, in the gloom, all kinds of furtive activities are going on. Philip has been hatching his escape plan, but Gavin has found out about it and, in the light of his discovery, considers his own position.
Eddie,who has been burrowing away for treasure on Brookfield land under the cover of darkness, finds that the glint of gold has led him into danger.
There are other matters brewing at Bridge Farm, where an era appears to be coming to an end, while Jazzer finds himself caught in the cold beam of the truth.
Christmas plans to light up the grim winter forge ahead, but when the cheery Ambridge lights are turned on, a shadow falls on the Horrobin clan.
