Series 27 - 18. Smoke and Mirrors

Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Rackham

Cast your mind back to last summer when Nick Jordan’s partner Yvonne was seriously injured during the riots and had to be airlifted to another hospital. Her condition is now life-threatening, but Nick won’t give up on her and is trying every conceivable treatment. He just won’t let her go.

But while trying to treat a young, very ill woman who has announced she wants to die, he realises what he’s been doing. “It’s the kind of desperation that makes you just want to buy just a bit more time,” he explains tearfully.
As well as these very convenient parallel cases, the paramedics bring
in an oddly behaved boy who’s been beaten up.
