SERIES 30, EPISODE 4 - CRADLE TO GRAVE
I commented when I read the synopsis for this week's episode that it's always good value when Lee and the wonderful William Beck share a screen and I'm happy to report that even my high expectations were exceeded, not just by the storyline but by the quality of the acting from both men. I reckon Lee can say more with just his eyes than many can with full voice and it was great to see that so clearly tonight.
It feels as though there's plenty of scope to explore this intriguing Lofty/Dylan dynamic further in the coming weeks... let's hope the script writers thought so too!
Synopsis: On her first day new junior doctor Alicia treats a vulnerable pregnant woman and discovers that her relationship isn't what it seems. Lily is assigned as Alicia's mentor and is a little envious of the way she gets on with people. Dylan returns to work and tries to make an effort with Lofty. After a difficult start they bond over a dying patient, whom Dylan feels he can empathise with.
Meanwhile, Connie turns down a date with Jacob and he later learns about Grace. Ethan and Honey call it off just as Noel was about to arrange a family bonding experience and Honey hands in her notice after Noel sells his action figures to allow her to set up a business.
The full episode will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Monday 19 October, and there are also more than a few screencaps for your viewing pleasure! 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!
