(Series 14, ep.50) The main action this week was in AAU and Keller, with Darwin as this week’s comedy relief. I never thought I’d hear myself say that.
To the hurly burly of AAU first, and the hot news is that Luc’s camper van was clamped. The other hot news was that Wolfie had the chance of a nice job in Brighton – now Luc’s back, there’s no job for Wolfie at Holby. This was just as well, because Luc was noticing some troubling things about Wolfie. For one thing, he’s hardly ever seen without having Nurse McKee attached to his face, which has got to be awkward and inconvenient, not least for the patients. For another thing, he had trembly hands. Again, not something to inspire patient confidence, and also a tell-tale sign of Camoxidan addiction. Luc did what any self-respecting maverick doctor would do, and covertly took a sample of Wolfie’s hair – or should we call it pelt – from his jacket while Wolfie wasn’t wearing it, and had it tested. This is not technically legal, but who cares when it came up with the evidence that Wolfie has been full of Camoxidan for at least months. This explains the trembly hands and the fact that he can’t put a pressure bandage on to save his life. Or, more accurately, to save someone else’s life.
There was a big showdown, Wolfie stomped off to Brighton and Eddi failed to stomp with him – but she did try to cheer herself up after his departure by popping one of his dodgy pills herself. Are we now going to have to endure Eddi’s descent into drugs hell? I had enough of that when it was Mark “Jesus” Williams who at one stage was forever nipping off to the gents for a mid-shift enlivener.
Meanwhile, almost everyone on Keller was tense, awaiting the results of the report into the death of Nice Mr Mooney. Chantelle wasn’t tense, because she’s way too sunny for that type of thing and she also had a box of mini doughnuts as a relaxation aid. I do admire Chantelle’s thinking. Serena didn’t admire it that much, but she did have a sneaky doughnut anyway. Serena’s controversial initiative of the week was to fast track patients by popping tubes up or down them to have a look-see before she’d done any X-rays or boring stuff like that. It saves time, but doesn’t work when you have patients who inconveniently have all their organs the wrong way round. Victory for Ric and his old-fashioned, methodical approach once again, but he assured Serena this didn’t mean he would let her take the blame over Mr Mooney.
As it turned out, no-one is getting the blame for Mr Mooney, as the report came back as “no blame attached.” There were more than strong clues that this is not the last we’re going to hear of this story, though. Not judging by the mass of emails Hanssen received with the subject line, “Blood on your hands.” We do need to be concerned about our favourite super-tall Swede.
Darwin was a bit quiet, because Jac was away at a conference and Oli had gone with her to carry her bag. He’d also left his phone behind, and Jonny Mac saw an opportunity to wind Tara up by sending her racy texts from Oli’s phone. She neatly (and a tad predictably, it must be said) turned the tables on him by sending back texts that seemed to indicate that Jac was having an affair with a millionaire. It was quite sweet, because Jonny kept pretending to Mo that he wasn’t bothered – “This is Naylor we’re talking about” – but he so is.
Next time: Hanssen in deadly danger! Sacha in the doghouse with Chrissie! And a pregnancy scare for Jac!
