SERIES 29, EPISODE 6 - THE LAST CALL
With colleagues past and present gathered to say farewell to paramedic Jeff Collier (Matt Bardock), Lofty's treatment of an OCD sufferer offered a welcome counterpoint to the emotionally-charged main storyline - and it was good to have the chance to see how natural and believable Lee's 'nursing skills' have become since he first joined the cast.
In a casting quirk, there was also a return by former cast regular, Jeff's nephew Jamie Collier, played by Daniel Anthony who also featured as a guest star, alongside Lee, in Lee's first venture into the world of Casualty back in 2011.
Synopsis: A couple of old faces return to Holby as the team gathers to say farewell to their friend, on an emotional day that proves draining for most. Ash can't help but feel guilty about his colleague's death, Dixie throws herself into work and Cal worries when Ethan disappears from his hospital bed to attend the funeral. Meanwhile, Lofty treats an OCD sufferer and a new barista joins the hospital - and quickly makes an impression on Noel. Chelsee Healey joins the cast.
The full episode will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Monday 10 November, but in the meantime, with my ever grateful thanks to the anonymous editor and my profuse apologies to those of the cast who have hit the cutting room floor, here's the 'Meady bits' edit!
