Dr Zara Carmichael is not impressed when she and colleague Dr Sid Vere find themselves accidentally locked in the surgery during a power cut on Halloween.

After discovering the 24 hour emergency call-out man is at a Halloween party and could be a while, the medics decide to pass the time by raiding the surgery fridge and telling ghost stories.

And things are just as spooky down at the local police station when Rob Hollins encounters a stranger, Samuel Roswell, armed with a plastic bag containing something head-shaped…
