Avoidable Harm

Series 30 - Episode 11 Avoidable Harm



“For as long as I can remember I’ve always wanted to be a doctor,” chirrups junior doctor Alicia Munroe in an unnerving voiceover at the start of a charged, tragic and rather good episode.

Alicia’s having a rotten time, bullied by her mentor, Chilly Lily the human fridge-freezer. But the cracks in their relationship burst asunder when Alicia, during a truly terrible day, finds herself in danger and at the wrong end of boss Connie’s flimsy-to-nonexistent person-management skills.

Elsewhere, the all-seeing, all-knowing Lofty looks within the soul of an 11-year-old boy (his intellectual equal, you might think) while Zoe continues to behave like a kicked spaniel around dumb Max. Forget him, Zoe, he is not worthy.


Alicia's day gets off to a bad start when she gets caught up in a fight outside the ambulance station, forcing her to treat a patient in the back of a van. Lily's opinion of the bubbly junior doctor has not improved in the slightest, but her mentor's discouragement only pushes Alicia to try harder to prove her worth. Meanwhile, Jacob takes a vigilante approach to justice as he sets out to identify the police officer who shot him, Iain and Rita share a tender moment, and Cal brings baby Matilda into the Emergency Department after failing to find suitable child care. Medical drama, starring Chelsea Halfpenny, Crystal Yu, Amanda Mealing and Charles Venn.
