Plot[edit]

Bron and Ben's big day has arrived and despite his nerves and the unwelcome arrival of her father, they finally make it to the altar. Their beautiful wedding is the first of many for All Saints staff in 2003, a year of love, loss, and new beginnings. In blossoming relationships, Regina gets a date with the florist of her dreams and Matt falls for a patient, unaware of what is wrong with her. Luke tries endlessly to impress Paula's young son Max however it seems he can do no right.

Mitch's erratic behavior and increasing deafness bring him and a worried Terri to loggerheads until Mitch undergoes tests uncovering that his recent symptoms are the sign of something far worse than either of them had imagines. Special requests are being made of the doctors at All Saints, and their response will change lives and lead to explosive conflict on Ward 17. Tragically, as Christmas approaches an obsessive gunman embarks on a shooting spree stalking through the hospital. The year brings teary farewells for two of All Saints' much loved and long serving staff as Bron and Mitch say goodbye forever.
