Upton In Love - Again!
16 June 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Upton is smitten by Dr.Nicky Barrington, and the feeling is reciprocated. He plans a holiday-for-two in Devon, but then Collier brings some exciting news - Bingham has been sacked from the Dean's firm ( a post he landed in 'Now Dr.Upton...' ), meaning there is now a vacancy for a surgeon. Despite having blotted his copy book by parking the Dean's Mini on the sunroof ( see 'Students At Heart' ), the old man is keen for Upton to have the job.

Mike is torn between taking up the post ( which means taking him away from Nicky ) or staying.

Further complications arise when it transpires that Nicky has applied for the job herself...

Concluding the storyline begun in 'With A Little Help From My Friends', this Rowley & Baker episode sets the scene for the remainder of the series, with everyone back at St. Swithins. Of course there was never any real chance of Upton and Nicky becoming an item, so the thing practically wrote itself.

Collier seems to have forgiven Mike for sacking him, although he later exacts a form of revenge by setting in motion the chain of events that wrecks Mike's romance with Nicky.

Finally, Nicky withdraws her application, allowing Mike to get the job unopposed.

Funniest moment - Mike and Nicky arguing in full view of the patients, including a bemused Mrs.Mollett ( Mollie Sugden ).
