Series 32 - Episode 18



Without any prompting, Ethan decides to “go home”. Can you believe it? After being badgered week in and week out to get out of the department, he’s on his way to his bed…

But not so fast, Ethan! Connie, who for such a horrible woman has a surprising number of devotees, puts the brakes on. She’s dying of heart failure and she wants Ethan to drive her to London for one last chance at life. So he does, the mug.

An old foe from medical school just happens to be a heart expert and, as Connie’s colleagues at Holby won’t operate, she must go elsewhere. And it really IS London – look, the Houses of Parliament! The London Eye! Tower Bridge!


The truth about Connie's illness is out, following her dramatic collapse while at work. As she recovers, she is devastated to hear that her colleagues are aware of her terminal diagnosis. Worse still is the news that her tumour has grown, and complications now mean that her consultant refuses to operate. Discharging herself, Connie persuades Ethan to drive her to London for a second opinion, but when she loses consciousness en route and is rushed into emergency surgery, her put-upon protege faces an agonising wait for news. Meanwhile, back at the ED, Dylan struggles to hold the fort, in the absence of more experienced hands.
