Julia McNamara gets a surprise visit from her glamorous mother, successful child psychology author Dr. Erica Noughton, who has various reasons to want plastic surgery and insists that Sean should operate her; that even worsens his worries about an unsteady hand, and the specialist tells him it's a fashionable psychosomatic condition without a medical cure. Christian wrestles with his instincts- while resenting Gina Russo emotionally blackmailing him with her baby, he is determined to become a good father, but swears to keep his mundane (sex-)life, so he looks for a nanny and hires Linda, the candidate with the sexiest 'fringe-benefits', but finds she's neglecting the child... Meanwhile the doctors operate on Libby Zucker, whose face is so horrible she'll need at least five major, risky operations and is most uncertain in her 'steady' relationship with attractive Chad Myers who she knows to have affairs.

A Must for Vanessa Redgrave fans!
29 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Erica Noughton is played by the fabulously talented Vanessa Redgrave who believe it or not turned down Damehood in 1999. She should have been made a Dame years ago but that's another story. Here she is sexy, sensual, and believe it or not is extremely beautiful at her age far more than women half her age. Anyway, she plays child psychologist and is Julia's mother (what a coup in casting?) because she is Joely's real life mother. The scene in the gym between mother and daughter is quite interesting. I love Vanessa Redgrave and I think she is one of the most talented and gifted actresses of our generation. She makes it look so easy. Of course, this episode was the first for me watching Nip/Tuck and I left the show with mixed feelings. Then I returned and realized it's brilliance and have never left it. The scene between her and Christian is unforgettable. You forget that she's old enough to be his mother too.
