Storyline

News spreads around the hospital about Diane's car being hit by a freight train and her being killed instantly. Ric takes it the hardest leading to Thandie breaking off their engagement and to top it all the freight train driver is also brought to Holby with injuries which Ric has to treat. Chrissie is none too happy with Sutherland and his staffing shortages and on talking to Mark she decides that she is working to rule. Meanwhile, Lola returns to Holby and clashes with Abra initially but they put their differences aside over the treatment of an elderly actress. Elsewhere, Jac is getting the cold shoulder from just about everyone following the revelations about her affair with Lord Byrne. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[Donna, Maria, Lola, Chrissie, Abra and Mark are staring at an abstract sculpture that is being erected in the grounds]

Donna Jackson: It's obvious, isn't it? It's an escargot.

Lola Griffin: If I'd have known that, I'd have given out easels ...

Loathe Holby, Love Sian!
22 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

I do not make a practice of watching Holby (aka Holby City). It is a highly propagandistic and ridiculously unrealistic hospital soap, and on the few occasions I have seen it I have been astonished at its rose-coloured view of the NHS.

However, a very good friend advised me that this particular episode included a certain Welsh actress called Sian Phillips. As Sian is my GODDESS, I had no alternative: watch it I must!

It should be noted that the generous 7 out of 10 I have awarded for this episode is entirely due to the presence of the exquisite one; it could easily have been 10 out of 10, had there been a scene in which Sian had been required to remove all of her clothing and be examined in detail by a handsome young doctor.
