Casualty: Fletch’s heroic exit

fletch casualty(Series 28, ep.43In this episode, Tess faced my biggest train-related fear – having to sit opposite an annoying kid who whinges on about his life and makes you play table football with Skittles.

As if that wasn’t dreadful enough, the train also derailed spectacularly and Tess was left in a terrible state waiting for a knight in shining paramedic garb to come and rescue her. Cometh the hour cometh not just the expected Jeff, but also the unexpected Fletch, who told Tess he loved her before un-impaling her from whatever was impaling her and carrying her out of an exploding train carriage to safety. Hero!

Except not – because Tess, who is practically built from Moral Fibre, can’t be happy in a relationship that started off with lies and cheating and whatever. Indeed, the reason she was on the train in the first place was that she was on her way to a job interview in Birmingham, because she can’t cope with seeing Fletch and his lovely quiff day in, day out.  

Lidl“It’s not a problem,” sniffed Fletch through his tears. “I  love you but I’ve already secured a nice job offer from the lovely people at Holby City and I shall be making my way to the Hollywood of Hertfordshire very soon. I’m looking forward to it, actually, because they’ve just reopened a new and improved Lidl in Borehamwood.” He didn’t exactly say that, but that’s what’s going to happen (Lidl has already happened, and they’re not even paying me to say so).

Next time: Michelle Collins off of Corrie and EastEnders! Just keep her away from Selfie – she still hasn’t forgiven him for killing Sunita and burning down her pub.

    Isn’t Holby upstairs from the ED tho’, in the p (retend) world of that hospital, so he’s hardly “getting away” is he?

    • An invisible force-field exists which keeps them apart. The Casualty staff do their after-work drinking in that pub opposite the ambulance entrance and the Holby staff go to Albie’s. When the Casualty staff get peckish, they never, ever think of popping to Pulses for a muffin and a frothy coffee. And even on the most gloriously sunny day, the Linden Cullen Memorial Shrubbery is never an option for those ED types. So Tess will never have to be tempted by that lovely quiff.

        All true, but Selfie has been known to Cross the Portal. Perhaps, if he’s carrying a Pulses muffin as he goes, he’ll explode the medical space time continuum and destroy the known Holby/Casualty universe.

      • OMG – you’re right! We need to get Pulses on lockdown so no muffins can leave the area.

    I do wonder if Connie might have bitten off more than she can chew in becoming Clinical Lead. After all she’s a woman who is used having order of things and staying in complete control. By it’s very nature the ED is the exact opposite of that I think it would be really interesting to watch Connie get in over her head and become spectacularly unstuck!

    Connie, Zoe and Ash’s habit of wearing their own clothes around the ED (unless there’s a MajAX) has been one of my bug bears since I started re-watching – it’s just so yucky (they’d be taking all those A&E germs home at the end of the day – ewww!!!) and you NEVER see it on ’24 Hours in A&E’ which has become my visual bible when it comes to A&E policies and procedures. And don’t even get me started on those ridiculous shoes Connie and Zoe wear!!
    And I’ve always thought it was weird that the divine Miss Naylor can wear her hair down up on Darwin when every NHS trust I’ve ever worked at always says in it’s uniform policy that long hair should be tied back (and again why wouldn’t you tie it back anyway – who knows what it could end up in/could end up in it if its not?) so I suppose the same rules don’t apply to Connie as well !!
