Holby City: The flipside of Joseph Byrne

Apart from being The World’s Most Beautiful Heart Surgeon, Joseph Byrne is a fascinating character. He’s controlled to the point of being repressed, very literal, very correct. He’s compassionate and caring, but doesn’t exactly exude warmth. Then, sometimes, he erupts. Continue reading

Holby City: Joseph Byrne’s beautiful mind

Joseph Byrne (the world’s most beautiful heart surgeon) is wearing himself to a frazzle trying to get to the bottom of who killed Archie.

Holby City: When is a dark secret not a dark secret?

I was all excited about this episode, because we were promised that we would find out a “dark secret” about Irish Dr Greg, when an old friend turned up.

Holby City: The twilight of the robots

The world’s most beautiful heart surgeon, Joseph Byrne, has still not had a shave, and his OCD is getting the better of him as well (the old obsessive hand-washing when not actually about to perform surgery).
