Review

Robyn walks into the emergency department staff lunchroom and who should be lurking in there with a hopeful smile on his face but Glen. Yes, that Glen, the gurning fool who left a pregnant Robyn at the altar.

The fact that he doesn’t have long to live can’t excuse his behaviour as far as Robyn is concerned (and, for everybody watching, his painfully flat attempts at mordant humour). But he wants to see his daughter Charlotte and attend her christening.

It turns out that Dylan is helping Glen with treatment for his illness, notably introducing him to a former mentor, played by Cagney and Lacey’s Sharon Gless. She’s great – acerbic, funny and a wee bit flirty.

Summary

The day of Charlotte's christening arrives, and when a flustered Robyn steps into the ED staff room, she finds herself face-to-face with Glen - the terminally ill fiance who jilted her at the altar - very much alive. Naturally, Robyn has a few questions, and Dylan fills in the blanks by flashing back to the morning after Charlie's stag do, when he found a depressed Glen drinking away his woes in a rough karaoke bar. Determined to convince him not to give up on life, Dylan enlists the aid of his feisty old university tutor Zsa Zsa Harper-Jenkinson - an eminent brain surgeon in the US - to assess Glen's case. She reveals that pioneering surgery could save Glen, but the risks are high. However, with Dylan's help, Glen realises the birth of his daughter has given him a new purpose in life and a fresh dream to chase.
