It’s getting warmer as we head into spring, and things are most definitely heating up in Ferndale too. Don't miss all the action coming up this month.



Victoria struggles to deal with the return of Trent in her life. The dangerous criminal, finally released from jail, has made her his number one target for torment, just as he threatened to do when he was in hospital.

Taunting her, Trent threatens Victoria, saying that she'll have to watch her back, because he's going to make her life hell. Victoria quickly realises that he means business.

Determined not to play into his threats and become a victim, Victoria devises a plan to turn the tables on Trent, but is she really capable of taking on a dangerous criminal? Or will she end up putting her life, and the lives of others at risk?


Drew gets an unwelcome surprise in October. He discovers that a patient who he performed plastic surgery on, is in fact underage, and the surgery should never have taken place.

Aware that he and Margaret are going to be in the firing line if anyone else discovers what happened, Drew makes plans to cover the situation up. But Rachel has a way of discovering everything that goes on in her hospital, and it's not long before she gets wind of the misdemeanour.

Meanwhile, the underage patient soon ends up with complications and it's not long before a very angry parent gets involved. Drew's career and livelihood could very well be cut short.

As well as work issues, grieving Marg also has to contend with the realisation that Victoria may well have designs on her husband.
