I only do watch because dh is still hanging on in there with it. I've def watched it for too long though. I mean really! Chrissie must have seduced the entire hospital three times over by now. She never seems to be more than three feet away from at least two current conquests. What is it with Chrissie and men falling at her feet?confused And then there's the roof!! Is there a queue to jump off the roof? Most hosiptals or commercial buildings, it would be very difficult to get to the roof. Not on Holby. And people leaving. Off they go in a taxi or a bus. Loads and loads of them. No-one works out their notice. No-one seems even slightly perturbed about the implications financially of just literally walking out of a perfectly good job to go 'travelling'. I think they must really be going to the roof because they suddenly realise how crap it all is. Gah the whole thing is so ridiculous. And everyone collapses in the corridor or the toilets. Please bring back Connie. I liked Connie. I liked Hansson before he went all weird and started keeping a bird in his desk. It's just terrible nowadays. Jac's the only one I like and they've set her up with an unbelievable storyline. No way would she and that nurse chap have got together.

Actually there're not blush

Dr Digby is Rob Ostlere and 'Mikey' from my family is Gabriel Thompson.

Must be getting old a bit short sighted.

(But they do look similar )

Guy is Zosia estranged father. I think her mother is meant to be his dead Polish wife.

Louise Delamare who plays the new nurse manger also played a nurse in C4 "No Angels" in the early 2000s.

Ah that's where I've seen her.

OodKingWenceslas Wed 18-Dec-13 20:53:33

2 more Doctors down !

Wasn't Zoe in Casualty in No Angels as a nurse too? With Tanya from Eastenders.

TheReturnoftheSmartArse Fri 20-Dec-13 11:10:12

Yes, that's it, Halle! Loved No Angels.

HalleLouja Fri 20-Dec-13 11:49:05

I never watched it but looked good.

NYE and the arsey dark haired Dr is thinking he's a vet hmm

Like the time Mallick went into Call The Midwife mode and delivered a baby in the Reception area.

<<Not Real >>

<<sigh>>

Halle also in No Angels was Zoe from Casualty as a HCA and Jeff the paramedic was a consultant.

Just seen a 2014 Casualty spoiler and wow!

GobbySadcase Tue 31-Dec-13 20:53:47

I don't watch Casualty but the hair confused

Just caught up on NYE one.

OodlesofOods Wed 08-Jan-14 20:16:50

Catching up. What's the party Ric is at & why did he take thingy with him?

Jaynebxl Wed 08-Jan-14 23:25:34

Uni reunion I think.

Can anyone tell me what is actually wrong with Jac's baby?

MereMortal Thu 09-Jan-14 15:45:34

Jac's baby has a diaphragmatic hernia, so the risk was she would be born with lungs too squashed to be able to breathe.

She'll need medical intervention to repair it, so here'll be plenty of opportunities for Jac & Johnny to share long, lingering looks over their daughters incubator.

Jaynebxl Thu 09-Jan-14 16:11:07

Thanks MM. If the babiea survive birth and the medical procedure works well do they go on to lead normal lives?

TheReturnoftheSmartArse Thu 09-Jan-14 16:17:17

Cherie Lunghi didn't waste much time dying, did she? One moment she was having a lovely evening, the next, gone.

Strange episode, that one.

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

OodlesofOods Thu 09-Jan-14 18:15:01

I didn't get most of the story blush

RhondaJean Thu 09-Jan-14 18:24:10

I wept buckets though. Odd as it was.

lostinteaching47 Sat 11-Jan-14 17:21:51

I really liked Jac in this episode, i found myself almost believing she WAS having a baby (puzzled face) strange that! I can't stand Jonnys girlfriend she was Gary's girlfriend in Miranda and I hated her in that too!
The actual person is probably lovely tho :>)
I do like Serena too, I like the way they are showing her softer side and I've always liked Ric, he isn't in it enough.

OodlesofOods Sun 19-Jan-14 14:20:43

Ah that's what she's from. Does my head in too

Campaspe Sun 19-Jan-14 19:04:49

Holby is in the doldrums a bit at the moment. It definitely needs a bit more romance and sexual tension to spice things up. More Jac and Johnny, and someone nice for Sasha. And Spence to come back and fall for someone HARD. Mmmmm.

Tonights episode (I dip into Holby every now and then)

The Jac/ Bonnie/Johnny triangle. The way Jac is so blisteringly unprofessional in front of Bonnie

The pain in the bum rude grand-daughter with the Nursing Home Grandad

And I can't abide the new bloke (Scottish guy who roared at one of the other Doctors for his recuss when he started - a few weeks back now)

The only ones I like at the moment is Serena, Rick and Zosia.

scampadoodle Fri 14-Mar-14 16:26:32

Yeah, the new Scottish doctor is really annoying. Right chippy, know-it-all smug git. (However, WHO ON EARTH books a flight leaving that same afternoon when they haven't cleared their leave with the boss?? But I forget, it's HolbyWorld!)

And although Jac is a cow, I think Bonnie & Jonny (aargh! even their names rhyme!) were incredibly insensitive to her feelings after the baby was born. Just because she wasn't visibly emoting all over the place. One of my babies was in NICU and how you cope with it is very personal, and you can be scared to bond too much. I would like to think the SW had this in mind but we're probably supposed to side with B&J against Jac?
