Sometimes things just don't work out

I think I spoke too soon when I blogged that sometimes things just work out. 

Our main tomato bed was going gangbusters and all of a sudden we have black spots on the leaves and stems. Some leaves are dying. I think it's this dreaded rain then sun then rain then sun and might be early blight or even something more sinister.  This is our main tomato garden too which is making me rethink how I garden as I think it is spreading due to them being close.

I'm open to advice here. I've removed all the badly infected leaves and done a copper spray but it's raining again here. 

To be honest, I've never really had to deal with tomato problems before so I'm a bit stumped.  Google has not been helpful other than making me want to drink a bottle of wine to drown my sorrows! 

I'm hoping I'm not too late and we can save our tomato babies. We had such great plans for them.
