This episode focuses on Craig, who was 17 when a car hit him as he crossed a road late at night. He suffered a massive head injury and was in a deep coma for three weeks. When he awoke, it became clear that the brain damage had left him with a completely different personality. Five years after his accident, the new Craig is an angry young man. He has no control over his emotions, and his violent mood swings are wrecking his and his family's lives. He has a baby daughter whom he is not allowed to see and a home full of his latest obsession: reptiles.

Locked in [electronic resource]: Coma

This episode tells the story of Joanne, who six years ago had a seizure. Since then she has been in a wakeful coma. Doctors believe Joanne is in a permanent vegetative state, awake but unaware, and that her smiles and reactions are simply reflexes. But her parents are not so sure. They worry that she might be "locked in": trapped inside an unresponsive body, hearing and understanding everything but unable to communicate. Her parents are convinced that she does respond to them and can blink on command. They decide to send their daughter to London to be tested by world experts at the Royal Hospital for neurodisability.
