The official synopsis for the episode reads: "James is alarmed to receive a call from Mrs Pumphrey who fears her beloved Tricki Woo is dying. He examines the dog and it becomes clear Mrs Pumphrey hasn’t been following the diet James prescribed. It’s time for drastic action. James takes Tricki back to Skeldale House for a period of rehabilitation. But things don’t go according to plan when Tricki goes awol and his condition deteriorates.


Diana sadly passed away on 10 September

"Back at Skeldale Tristan prepares to return to Edinburgh University to continue his veterinary studies and asks Siegfried to write his cheque for board and lodgings. But his older brother is struggling to hand over the cash and announces that Tristan isn’t going anywhere until he can prove his commitment to being a vet. Encouraged by Mrs Hall, Tristan sets out to earn his cheque by taking Tricki Woo under his wing and doing all that Siegfried asks. It looks like he’s won his brother round until Siegfried announces he’s got other plans for Tristan."
