Series 27 - 16. I Saw Mommy Killing Santa Claus

Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Rackham

Who’d have thought that grouchy Dylan would ever take Tom’s side in an argument with Dominic? “Tom thinks you are arrogant and complacent and that the patients suffer as a result. And today you proved him right!” he snaps, when Dominic makes a bad decision over a baby with severe hypothermia who’s been trapped in a car that had rolled into a freezing cold canal. It’s not the only surprising thing Dylan does.

Meanwhile, two men both dressed as Father Christmas are involved in a robbery that goes wrong. In fact A&E is positively awash with bearded chaps wearing red suits — including one who’s been poked in the eye by a stroppy kid. It’s Bobby Ball.
