A new Katie Jinks story started in the previous issue, all about her swimming ability – yes, klutzy Katie is also a swimming champion, which helps round out her character a bit. Poor girl, she also has a secret enemy, turning her reputation for clumsiness against her. Things all start looking much less humorous in this normally-silly strip.

In “Angela’s Angels”, tea-girl Crystal has been identified as the jealous enemy who played mean tricks on Jo – but a good turn that nurse Sharon does to wheelchair-bound tennis star Neil turns out well for both Neil and Crystal! And at this ‘all’s well that ends well’ point, the story ends – “Gosh, it’s hard work training to be a nurse, and we’ve got a long way to go yet – but it’s so rewarding!”
