Review

Holby is in the grip of flu, which means the ED is seriously short-staffed (in other words there’s no Zoe this week), there are dozens of extra patients to treat and there’s trolley gridlock in the corridors. Yet, amazingly, young student nurse Robyn still has time to turn detective and find out which of her colleagues is living in a basement stockroom.

Up in the cubicles, two of the victims of a road accident appear to know each other (and this story continues next week), there’s a glimpse of old, campaigning Casualty when Ash rants about NHS budget cuts, and Fletch kisses someone he really, really shouldn’t.

Summary

The medics are overwhelmed by the continuing flu outbreak, and with Zoe off sick, Ash and the team are pushed to the brink as they struggle to deal with the crisis. A man's attempt to track down his estranged wife leads to a car crash, but once in the ED he reveals how she might be able to save their son, the boy she abandoned as a baby 10 years ago and who is now fighting leukaemia. Fletch tries to convince Tess he didn't encourage the attention of trainee nurse Aoife. Patrick Robinson, Alex Walkinshaw and Suzanne Packer star.
