We begin where Episode 9 left off, with the huge explosion ripping through the tunnel. Fortunately the watch is ok, but one of the paras is trapped by a generator falling on him. The little girl's appendix has burst, so they have to take her out as soon as possible. Coleman tells Pearce that there may be another person trapped in a van. Pearce finds which van he's in, but they have to use cutting gear to cut their way into the van. The Doctor is with Frost, but the pumps lifting gear won't shift the generator. Pearce asks how long the Fire Rescue Unit will be, but it is caught in traffic jams. Sally finally gets into the van, and finds Dermot impaled on a spike. Melissa and Recall are hosing the fire down, but they dont seem to be making progress. Hi-Ho and Adam talk to Frost, but he suddenly arrests and has to bne jump started by the Doctor. Frost is now in a bad way, but with no FRU they cant lift the generator. Recall and Melissa believe they are almost on top of the fire when a jet of flame starts up from the tanker.....

With the lifting gear not there, everyone lifts the generator off Frost, and pull him clear of the tunnel. Coleman asks the tanker driver, who finally admits that he was carrying illegal diesel. Coleman tells the Watch that they ned to put the fire out otherwise the whole tunnel could collapse if it blew. Pearce orders the Watch into BA, with them working as one team on a hose. They slowly edge forwards and Recall is able to switch the valve off.

Back at Blackwall, Pearce says thank you to the Watch. As the Watch enter the locker room, they talk about Eve's godparents, with Adam starting a book on it. Hyper puts a fiver on Coleman as godfather and Griggs as godmother! Melissa goes to see Coleman to recieve her posting, she announces to the Watch where she is going..... Shadbrook! She says she will buy everyone a drink, but everyone except Sal is busy. Hyper tells her that Pearce wants a word with her. Pearce seems a bit confused, but asks her to do the FDR reports before she goes. Pitbull arrives and teases Hi-Ho about who is best at cooking. Hyper suggests a simple cook-off. Pearce and Melissa walk out just as Adam is coming down the stairs with Melissas present so Pearce has to be quick as talk to her to distract her, and says he is proud of her. She asks him if he would like to go for a drink, but he says he needs to speak to Coleman. He thanks Coleman for his assistance with Eve and Fiona and asks him to be Eve's godfather. Coleman is flummoxed and says it would be an honour.

After work, Sally and Melissa leave, but Pitbull asks Melissa if shes off to her surprise party! The others are already at the Twist when she arrives. Adam shows Melissa her present, a jenga game! Adam has first go, and topples the tower over! Ben helps Hi-Ho at the gym, but the class is a load of kids. Ben decides to let them have a boxing match in the ring, but their parents arrive and go ape! Uh-oh! Back at the Twist, Pearce has a go a the Jenga, but again topples it. Adam suggests playing Twister, and its only him and Hyper that play. Coleman gives a speech to the Watch, and gives her the real present, a yard brush and a personal organiser with all the stations numbers in them and ACO Chapmans personal number too. Recall finally asks Elaine out on a date, and she accepts much to the delight of Adam and Ben. Pearce also has a word with the Watch, and tells them that as from the next day, they will be going back to basics! he suggests an early night for all of them, and they realise he isn't joking!

The next morning at Blackwall, Recall is laying up in the tower as a casualty while the others have to go and get him. Most are still recovering from the night before, and are in no state to really do it :) Coleman tells Pearce there is no news on a temp for George. The Watch decides that Pearce needs a project to keep him busy and Hi-Ho is the one to be taken under Pearces wing! Sally tells Hi-Ho that one of the kids mums has spoken to her and Sal has told her that Hi-Ho will give her some free 1 - to - 1 classes! Adam asks Recall where he is taking Elaine, so Adam suggests a full night out with a bit of class. Recall is a bit unsure on it...

Hi-Ho and Sally see Coleman about some additional training. Adam has a talk with Hi-Ho about the nobility of self-sacrifice. Hi-Ho's concious gets the better of him so he goes to see Pearce about Mentoring. Pearce is happy to help him. Its the great Blackwall cook-off with Pitbull preparing a nice bit of meat. He teases Hi-Ho that he wont be able to prepare anything, but Hi-Ho's has been cooking for ages. Adam asks Pearce who the godparents are going to be, Maggie, Coleman and Zoe, so Adam is out of pocket....... Hi-Ho has prepared a curry called the "Blue Watch Balti" while Pitbull has prepared "Bien de Chevauline" The Watch taste Pitbull's dish first, and Coleman tells them while they're tasting that its horse!

Luckily the bells go off and the Pump Ladder is called to a warehouse. Shadbrook had been there in the morning, and now a bloke has relit a fire inside. Adam and Hyper go inside and find the man. Adam recognises him and gets him out. Adam gets him out and asks whats going on. He walks off just as Recall walks round to see. Adam explains that it is his cousin Frank. Hyper and Sally find some paraffin and loads of other acelerants. Pearce says that Adam will have to talk to the Police. When the PL arrives back at Blackwall, Recall tells Adam that he wont put his job on the line. Adam says give him two days to sort out the family business.....
