Doctor Carter, I Presume (#3.1)
8 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is Carter's first shift that ends up being incredibly long and incredibly hard. I like how they made it, he is both dealing with getting a bit too full of himself and yet too insecure about taking all the responsibility. Love how they managed to combine it and how he acted it all out.

And we have the big bad news that Jeanie is HIV positive. Peter is luckily negative. We find it out a bit later in the episode. Interesting idea to make her worry about telling it to the others and wanting to keep it quiet. I am not sure it will go for too long though, Peter usually doesn't stay quiet.
