(Series 28, ep.34) No Connie this week, which was a bit irksome because I’ve missed the last couple of episodes so I have no idea how she’s bedding in. I have no idea how the Lee Mead character is bedding in either, except he seems to be living with Max and Robyn. Possibly Ash’s daughter Ella is living there too. At any rate, she was there at a party and unwisely took ketamine (more often used as an anaesthetic when Dixie is required to amputate a limb on-scene) and had an allergic reaction. Robyn and Fletch didn’t tell Ash exactly what happened and he thinks she just had too much to drink. He’s not going to be happy when he finds out – and he will find out.
Fletch was distracted anyway because Cal had got him started on a gambling app on his phone that dealt in stocks and shares and big amounts of money. As a hobby, this is about as wise as taking ketamine at a party. Fletch immediately ignored the wise motto that you should never gamble more than you can afford to lose, and of course he did lose it, while he was busy sorting out the personal lives of a couple of his patients and their dad.
Cal, meanwhile, is romantically pursuing Dr Lily Chao, but I don’t know whether he’s genuinely attracted to her or she’s just the biggest challenge he’s ever come across.
