(Series 19, ep. 62 ‘Group Animal, Part Two’ by Andy Bayliss 7.12.17) I don’t know how I can do this brilliant, tense, suspenseful episode any justice other than to give you a blow-by-blow account of what happened.

(Series 19, ep. 60 ‘Hiding Places’ by Gerard Sampaio 28.11.17) They’re dropping like flies at Holby.

He doesn’t make that kind of mistake, he says. He also says he told Donna to give Mrs Warren the anticoagulants, but she doesn’t remember him doing so. And she would remember – she doesn’t make that kind of mistake either.
