(Series 21, ep. 32 ‘When Worlds Collide’ by Andrew Rattenbury 6.8.19) Step on over to Metro to find my nice long review of this cracking episode. But first…
– As I mentioned in the review, the summer trailer’s scenes between Jac and Joseph and Faye reassured me that Jac wasn’t going to leave. Even so, I was quite tense when she rallied the troops for her Big Announcement.
– Last time she tried to ease off on work and spend time with her daughter she got shot five minutes later. Just saying.
– I should watch out for army-type metaphors like ‘rally the troops.’ This is the kind of thing that makes Cameron get all hissy.
– Stacey was a nightmare. But hands up who thought she looked a teensy bit like Jac?
– Baby Arthur Dominic Valentine Self!!! Squeeeeee!!! I love it so much that Arthur Digby is never forgotten at Holby.
– We’ve had the luxury of a lot of Carole Copeland episodes this year, for which I suppose we have to thank the adoption storyline which I wasn’t happy with at all when it began. I’m glad that Carole and Dominic are friends again – the smile he gave her when she said she didn’t want him to think she was putting Oskar first was just gorgeous.
– Controversial opinion alert: I still think Alex was more Bernie’s type than Serena ever was. Am I very wrong?
– Since Evan crept into the flat to deliver a box of chocolates I’ve started to think of him as the Milk Tray man. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DWt39zk00I
– Line of the week: (Hanssen) ‘If I were looking for a relationship at this time, I believe I could do a lot worse than Mrs Copeland.’ Elegant, diplomatic and rather charming, just like the man himself.
