In the penultimate episode of the historic medical sitcom, we witness love, lust and bareknuckle boxing.

Surgeon Robert (Rory Kinnear) has to deal with a bishop suffering from appendicitis who does not want to be operated on. Thus the only way to do the operation is to drug him.

Meanwhile John the dentist (Tom Basden) goes out on a date with and falls in love with a women at his local apothecary, and psychiatrist William (Mathew Baynton) considers the possibility of faking some results to help his career, while also continuing his affair with Caroline (Lydia Leonard).

Quacks is on BBC Two at 22.00 and available now on the BBC iPlayer.
