SERIES 29, EPISODE 20 - FRONT LINE
With chaos reigning in the ED and an inspection team taking careful note, Lofty had his own problems to deal with... a fear of clowns, dating back to a traumatic childhood encounter, gave Lee a great opportunity to flex his acting muscles. Fear is so often over-played, but he nailed it... it was there in the way he held himself, his hands, his words, but most of all, deep inside his eyes. At the risk of repeating myself, nicely played Mr Mead!
Synopsis: It's inspection day so Connie gives the staff a pep talk - unaware of the problems in store. Two soldiers are injured in an explosion during a training exercise, but Rita can't understand why one of them is lying about the accident.
A computer hacker tries to spread a little happiness, although it comes at a price that lands him in the ED - and as the doctors treat the patient's illness, Robyn inadvertently causes a near-disaster by spreading his virus to Holby's computer system. Honey catches Big Mac taking stock from the food bank, and Zoe and Max rekindle their passion.
The full episode will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Monday 9 March, and there will are also a few (OK, a lot of) screencaps for your enjoyment. Finally, with my ever grateful thanks to the anonymous editor and my apologies to those of the cast who have hit the cutting room floor, here's the 'Meady bits' edit!
