The Fear

Series 30 - Episode 42 The Fear



Poor Rita – after her appalling deception she returns to work, and to the silence of her colleagues. Emergency department personnel are so frequently sent to Coventry there should be a direct bus service from Holby. Though of course, it would be involved in an accident every week, on the same stretch of dual carriageway.

But with Rita’s career and her personal life are at their most rocky, it’s time for her to redeem herself – which she does, when a frightened little girl arrives in the ED with what could be signs of a hereditary illness. Lily is hopelessly chilly, so Rita steps in.

Meanwhile, the accident of the week is an altogether more baroque affair, as two men become a human kebab after a fight over a woman. The lesson is never, ever start a violent argument in front of a huge upstairs window.


Rita receives a frosty reception from her colleagues after her lies to Iain were revealed, but everyone must put aside their animosity when a pair of love-rivals are admitted to the ED after a scuffle at a hotel leaves them both impaled on the same spike. Meanwhile, Jez is so busy showing off that he forgets to fill the ambulance with petrol, Connie considers telling Grace about her relationship with Jacob, and Robyn is devastated following her break-up with Glen.
