Unsolvable Puzzle in Doctor Who: Evacuation Earth?

I've found this puzzle on Doctor Who: Evacuation Earth and I can NOT seem to solve it.

Quote:
Arrange the workers

Sam can't work near Mary
Bob's lunch is at 12
Katy works after Bob
Mary works in the morning
Alistair works after Sam

8:00-10:00
10:00-12:00
12:00-14:00
14:00-16:00
16:00-18:00

Hint 1: Bob and Katy's shifts are together, but Bob can't work in the 12:00-14:00 shift. So they have to be in the first two or last two shifts.
Hint 2: Since Mary works best in the first two shifts, Bob and Katy must be in the last two.
Hint 3: Mary belongs in the first shift. Sam can't work near Mary so he must go in the middle shift.
If I were to follow this exactly, I'd get this:

8:00-10:00 Mary
10:00-12:00 Alistair
12:00-14:00 Sam
14:00-16:00 Bob
16:00-18:00 Katy

This solution would be wrong because Alistair works AFTER Sam and not before.

Tried Mary, Bob, Sam, Alistair, Katy. Didn't work.
Tried Bob, Mary, Katy, Sam, Alistair. Didn't work.
Tried Mary, Bob, Katy, Sam, Alistair. Didn't work.
So I've basically tried every correct solution, and none of them work.

How do I solve this puzzle?

Are you reading the whole question, or is there something you are missing?

I typed the entire question up there.

And if you look, I already tried that combination.

I've got pictures, but I haven't been a member for 15 days so I can't post them.

POW is an unknown quantity at this point

Mary, Alistair, Sam, Katy, Bob.
It's the only other workable way.

The puzzle has no solution, it was written badly, wrong, and as such, has no absolute answer.
