Review

Who’d be a parent? The nerve-shredding nature of ushering a new life through a danger-strewn world is the focus of this series 20 opener, as three mums contend with injuries to their children while also reflecting on their own struggles and sacrifices.

George, 12, has hurt his leg after being hit by a motorbike on the way home from school; he was airlifted to St George’s, where doctors are concerned that the damage may be permanent. Poor Amber, nine, is in a lot of pain with suspected appendicitis, while Tanveer proves that the worry never ends – the 26-year-old gives mum Kamal a scare by coming off his moped, leaving him with a head injury and no memory of the accident.
