Quotes

[Will and Mubbs are carrying out an operation that Connie has specifically ordered them not to carry out]
Will Curtis: We need to get through this as quickly as possible - every minute on the table is putting an extra strain on her heart.
Mubbs Hussein: It's not something I can rush. If I deliver too much fluid or too quickly it may cause the placenta to detach.
Will Curtis: It's Connie detaching my testicles that I'm concerned about.

Hospital drama without the drama
7 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

'Holby City' has to be one of the most boring TV 'dramas' I have ever had the misfortune of watching. The plots are insipid, tedious, and cliched beyond belief. Does it possibly exist as some sort of retirement home for washed-up soap-opera actors ? Save yourself the pain and go and read a good book.
