(Series 28, ep.14) I couldn’t be happier. With the installation of Robyn’s step-brother Max as the new porter (to replace Big Mac, who has moved on to a new job), we have also acquired a love interest for Dr Zoe Hanna. She doesn’t have to smoke outside alone now – she has someone to smoke and flirt with at the same time. Plus he has the most beautiful smile. He isn’t even a totally rubbish porter, either. He does feel a bit superior to the job, what with being a former pop star and that, and he’s a bit lazy, but he can spot a heart attack when he sees one. The lad shows promise.
Dr Lily Chao is finally showing promise, too. For the first time, she went to Ash to ask his advice in a humble and sensible manner, rather than just shouting her opinion at him. And could romance be brewing between the two of them? Only the other day I was observing to PLA Jr that whenever anyone has to sort out a cut on someone else’s forehead on TV, they always end up in love. Jac Naylor and Jonny Mac on Holby, Tina McIntyre and Peter Barlow on Coronation Street. It’s inevitable. So when Dr Lily Chao was required to pop a couple of stitches into Ash’s forehead after he got in the middle of a scrap, was it purely a coincidence that he took his shirt off straight afterwards and she got all flustered? I think not.
