Jimmi's neck brace brings him bad luck when he clashes with snooty Judge David Tennyson and is threatened with contempt of court!

Dr Jimmi Clay has had to swallow his pride and wear a neck brace for his bad neck. However, he's not sure if the neck brace will make the infamous Judge David Tennyson go easier... or harder on him in court.

Due to give evidence in court about a drink-driving case he worked on as a forensic medical examiner, Jimmi immediately begins to clash with Tennyson, who doesn't think some of the evidence Jimmi is giving is relevant.

When the judge then suggests Jimmi is making excuses for the defendant's behaviour, Jimmi interrupts him, only to be threatened with contempt of court!

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters.
