Series 1 Episode 14
As Charlie phones around after Baz fails to show up at work, we see her emerging
from a clinic with a male friend. Worried Charlie goes to her house but gets no
answer, as he pulls out of her drive he sees Baz and her friend arriving and
drives off. Not knowing what to think Charlie takes his anger out on everyone,
prompting the staff to wish for Baz's return. When she arrives on the shift she
is ignored by Charlie. Duffy tells Suzie that she saw Baz leaving the clinic and
they both realise that Charlie could have been a daddy. When Charlie and Baz
finally confront each other he tells her that he cares about her and has been
worried sick about her. They are again interrupted, this time by Clive. The
rumour that Baz has lost her baby slowly filters around the department and comes
to a head when Cuba offers his sympathy to Baz in front of Charlie. Charlie
stands there shocked while Baz runs off. Clive, who hasn't heard the rumours,
innocently brings up the subject of babies, Charlie sees red and launches into a
fight with Clive. Baz arrives and tells everyone to leave she and Charlie alone.
She tells him that she has had an abortion and that it was his child. He is
angry and says he should've been consulted as he would've made a home for them.
Baz says that is why she didn't tell him. They argue their points and they are
both clearly devastated. At the end of the shift Charlie makes Baz tea and she
asks him to give her time. He says he'll give her all the time in the world.
