Holby City: Long-suffering Dominic

carole ange holby 14(Series 21, ep. 14 ‘Ask No Questions’ by Kathrine Smith and Michelle Lipton 2.4.19) Pop over to Metro for my full review of this episode.

I have a couple of things to add:

– As I expected, Carole totally broke my heart in this episode. The way she sat outside all day long, hoping Dominic would come out and talk to her. I loved how he left her his coat.

– I feel so sorry for Dominic. No sooner has he built himself up after Arthur and Isaac than this happens. It’s a really bad idea to be a popular Holby character – they put you through all sorts.

– Evan’s little sabotage of Cameron was interesting. I wonder whether this is the start of another Holby villain, or whether he was just doing what he had to do to secure the affections of the fragrant Chloe.

– Heartbreak ahead for Mia! This could be a very sad story indeed.

– What does being a Junior Doctor Lead involve, exactly? Cameron didn’t seem to do very much leading while he was in post. He didn’t even get a special uniform. Essie would have insisted on one, because she loves a special uniform.

– Why has Zosia never had a scan? What is she afraid of? Is she further along (or not as far along) in her pregnancy than she’s claiming? Is she worried that something might be wrong? Could this be connected to the potential father? I just had a thought – maybe she’s worried it’ll be twins. Non-identical twins can run in families. Who do we know who was a twin?

    But…. surely if it was twins she’d be bigger than she is, even at five months…

  2. Oh, but I really want it/them to be Ollie’s!

    Thank you as always, Sue. One question: why would Chloe have to leave Holby just because Ange wants to leave? They don’t live together, and Chloe is an adult.

      I don’t think Chloe would have to leave, but I think the fact that her mother is there and she’s reconnecting with her is a big part of why she decided to accept the permanent job from earlier episode. She originally was reluctantly called in by Ange because apparently Chloe had been her doctor elsewhere and was the only one Holly trusted. As I recall, relations between Chloe and Ange were strained at first but I think as time went on with the Holly situation Chloe came to the conclusion that working with her relationship with her mum was important to her.

    I agree with Valerie Bayliss from last week; the Dominic/Ange storyline makes no sense because of Chloe… I am repeatedly reminding myself that it is ‘just a tv show’, but a storyline needs to be possible using the characters previous back-story/stories, and not leave the viewer floundering in a plot hole!


    Rant over… (for now)

    I’m starting to get whiffs of coercive control off Evan now. I hope I’m wrong, but it was obvious that he was the person who had sabotaged Cameron. But some of the way he was talking to Chloe seemed very manipulative.

    Then again, Zav used to be horrible when he first turned up, and has since turned into a nice guy.
