(Series 22, ep. 31 by Damian Mullen 15.12.20) I’ve done a ‘proper’ review of this episode over at Metro as usual, so please give it a read. But before you go…
Who’s feeling the chemistry between Jac and Kian? You may say it’s because I’m never without my Jac/Joseph True Romance Goggles, but I’m not really feeling it currently. Maybe it’s because Kian is still being a pill-popping sweaty mess and if he was back to his former suave self I might believe he was worthy of the glorious Jac. I do like Kian – but I like him more when he’s being snack-happy and fun.
Jodie, of course, is in no way worthy of the glorious Sacha, but she’s extremely amusing.
But Beka! I’m very worried about her and mainly about Sacha. He couldn’t cope with another tragedy in his life.
Luckily Lucky Simpson is on hand to utter enigmatically. ‘What we’re running from comes when there’s silence,’ she informed us this week. How did we manage without her?
When Beka hugged Sacha and held his hands, was that the first moment any characters actually touched each other in this series filmed under Covid restrictions? Francesca Barrett is Bob’s real-life daughter and they live together, so it was allowed. And it was lovely to see.
Can Cameron get any more smug? Getting Lovely Louis into trouble is Not OK.
And that’s kind of end of term for me, as Holby isn’t back until 5th January. And on 2nd January Casualty is also back, so there’s a lot to look forward to.
Thank you to everyone who’s read this blog and/or Metro over the year, and to people who comment on here or get involved on Twitter and Facebook.
Have a lovely Christmas and all best wishes for a happy, healthy and more normal 2021.
