Holby City: He used to be a happy boy

isaac dom holby 21(Series 21, ep. 21 ‘Unredeemed’ by Andy Bayliss 21.5.19) Pop over to Metro for the full review of this episode. But first…

– It was one of those episodes which shows what a real community Holby is, as everyone jumped to defend Dominic from the nasty Isaac.

– Isaac hasn’t changed at all, has he? Still as manipulative and nasty as ever. Marc Elliott plays him so well that the scenes between Isaac and Dom were quite distressing to watch.

– Lofty leaving Dominic sandwiches for breakfast was like Charlie bringing Duffy the last muffin on Casualty. Adorable. I still don’t think for a minute that Lofty would have cheated on Dominic on what was supposed to be their honeymoon, but sometimes plot reasons come first I suppose.

Carole’s love of Dominic hasn’t been affected one bit by his recent rejecting behaviour of her, has it? I loved her confrontation with Jon: ’My son was a happy boy and Isaac has taken that away.’

  1. I was surprised when Ken sold Jac, what was a presumably very expensive bit of kit, that Jac had the purchasing power. Wouldn’t it have to go to Hanssen, if not the board for approval?

    Sorry to disagree but I thought the episode was terrible and I’m on the verge of starting to watch Holby on catch up so I can fast forward through all this Dom rubbish. He is taking up far to much screen time and being at the centre of three ongoing stories is just way to much in my opinion. He’s not even a remotely likeable character.

    On the plus side I did appreciate Sacha showing a backbone for once and having Dom’s back – even though Dom literally threw it back in his face seconds later.

    And who as running Keller seeing as everyone seemed to be down on AAU for the day?

    Did you see this morning’s Holby City on Drama? I was more than a bit gobsmacked to find Michael Spence had a previous life in Holby’s earlier days as Dr Sunil Gupta, sans American accent.
