Holby City .. 12 December 2017

I've said before that while the 'big bang' episodes are dramatic and exciting, I love the subtlety of the more reflective, character-driven storylines that often follow - not least because it's in these that the quality of Lee's acting really shines. I swear that man can say more with an eyebrow than most can with a whole speech!

So, this time it's Lofty's turn to put the brakes on... one day, sooner rather than later perhaps if the winter trailer is a fair indication, surely these two will find themselves on the same page in the saga of their oh so slow burn relationship!

Synopsis: With the hospital still recovering from traumatic events, Hanssen takes position at the front line on AAU. Determined to protect his flock, Hanssen insists new F1s Nicky and Meena act strictly as observers, but when a patient's unruly child pushes him to breaking point, Hanssen must find a way to accept his new colleagues' assistance, if not their compassion. But is he already too broken? New starter Meena struggles to bond with overworked and traumatised Dominic. Determined not to cut her any slack, Dom refuses to let her sit back and observe. Is he pushing her too hard or can Meena rise to meet his high expectations?

The full episode will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Thursday 11 January 2018 and here, with my apologies to those of the cast who have hit the cutting room floor, is the 'Lofty edit', with a few extras to preserve the story. As usual, there are a few screencaps.
