It's a bad day for Dot as she's still struggling to look after Jim, Marta is late for work and last night's incident with Edward is still on her mind. Looking into her purse for money to buy syrup from the shop, she spots that some cash is missing and, assuming Marta has stolen from her, she sacks her. When Carol turns up at the house, she reminds Dot that she needs help, but Dot insists that she can cope on her own. Carol then hands Dot a video tape containing old footage of Jim, which makes her upset so she tells Carol to leave.

Once in the Vic, Dot doesn't feel comfortable in Edward's presence.
Dot then visits the launderette to clean Jim's sheets, where she refuses help from Max. However, when Heather offers to help and points out that she knows what it's like to have older residents who have accidents, Dot finally relents and lets her sort things out. As Dot's day continues, she spots Edward, who has been trying to call her all morning. Edward insists that they should talk in The Vic, but when they get inside, Dot doesn't feel comfortable and Alfie even has to suggest that she goes to the back of the pub to calm down.

Dot has problems looking after Jim on his own.
While at the back of the pub, Dot has a chat with Kat but offends her by speaking about how she sympathises with Ronnie. Not wanting to return home to her difficult situation with Jim, Dot pays a visit to Jack's because she wants to see Ronnie. After speaking to Ronnie, Dot tells Jack to remember his wedding vows and look after his wife. Finally returning home, Dot spots smoke coming out from the oven and realises that dinner is completely ruined. After turning up some music to drown out the sound of Jim's buzzer, Dot finds the money that she thought Marta had stolen. As Jim starts crying out, Dot breaks down in tears.

Wanting to sort out the situation with Dot, Max and Carol both visit her house and find her hunched over Jim's bed. They're both shocked by Dot and Jim's desperate situation, and Dot finally admits that she can't cope. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
