She suspects her father Jim, played by Adrain Dunbar may be hiding the truth about the events surrounding her mothers death.

As she delves deeper into her mothers death, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems.

On the day of her mothers funeral tensions run high and Jim re-introduces a distant relative into the household with whom Cat suspects has bad intentions.

Jim starts making Cat question her own sanity as he bats away her never-ending questions as she is determined to uncover what really happened the day her mother died.

She discovers a threatening phone call from her father to her mother on a mobile that was thrown away and also discovers her father was having an affair with his secretary Sarah (Sherren Martin).

In the gripping finale of series one, viewers learn the shocking truth about Mary's death.

Jim has stolen money from a patient of his called Rita to help pay for Mary's nurse, the big house, the car and Sarah's rent.

When Mary discovers the money he stole stashed in a bag she confronts him and offers a shocking ultimatum.

Mum-of-three Mary has been battling Moto Neurone Disease and begged her husband Jim to help assist her in her death.

She said: "We both know what this thing does. We know how it ends. I'll be unable to move or speak or breathe on my own, I won't wait long for that to happen.

"It's my death and I believe I've been speared the last of my faculties this long so I can decide how and when it happens"

Cat was shocked as her Dad finally revealed the truth of her beloved mum's final moments.
