(Series 16, ep. 24) Due to moving house and living in a circumstance that looks like an episode of Extreme Hoarders before the tidying people come in, I only got time to sit down and watch Tuesday’s Holby last night and my recollections about the episode might be a bit confuzzled due to having to watch it through a canyon between cardboard boxes accompanied by the faint smell of cat poo (our traumatised cat had decided the new sofa was the best place to go to the toilet and the smell is taking days to shift).
So… Predictably enough, Bonnie has turned into Bridezilla and her head is full of wedding cake (metaphorically-speaking) and she wants everyone to share her happiness (say that aloud in a kind of breathless squeak for the full Bonnie effect). This includes Jac, because they’re going to be all mums together as far as Emma’s concerned, aren’t they (grrr…)? So Jac is invited to the wedding, but obviously wouldn’t be seen dead at the hen night. Or would she?
Yes she would, you know, and it provided an opportunity for her to tell Bonnie what she really thinks of her. This wasn’t as much fun as I’d have expected it to be, mainly because I just can’t accept the idea that Jac would care so much about Jonny – who has his sweet side but is increasingly often a complete arse. Jac can do (and has done) so much better.
On AAU, Dr Posh had a hangover and having to poke at a pair of gangrenous hands didn’t help. What did help was the hangover cure administered by consultant pharmacist Dr Amy Teo. And Dr Teo herself, who was exactly Dr Posh’s type – female, with a pulse and not Adele (poor Adele). I don’t think we’ve seen a pharmacist on Holby before, apart from the occasions when you see a non-speaking extra hand a bundle of Camoxidan through a hatch, so when Dr Teo suddenly found her skills to be essential to every scene on AAU, there was obviously going to be more to her than met the eye. Unfortunately she’s not a serial killer – she’s only the wife of Raf. The one who makes the croissanty treats and packs them in Tupperware (Amy, not Raf).
For a serial killer, or at least someone with a psychopathic tendency, we need look no further than Keller, where Dom is going all “Mwah ha ha!” on us and only Digby has noticed. I have to say I was worried for Diggers when he followed Dom down to the basement. Nothing good ever happens there (not since Sacha dismantled his den), and finding Dom in the wet lab clutching a scalpel and threatening to self-harm might turn out to be only the start of Digby’s problems.
Next time: Will Jonny make it to the altar? Will Zosia make it through the anniversary of her mother’s death? And will Serena knock AAU into shape?
