O blimey is it Tuesday already?

SleepingStandingUp Tue 02-Jan-18 19:56:49

Thank god for autorecord

caoraich Tue 02-Jan-18 20:11:05

Oooh thanks. I only realised it was on when I heard the River City music come on while I was in the kitchen and dashed through to flick to BBC not-Scotland grin

Not liking these prison scenes. Poor ric

Optimist1 Tue 02-Jan-18 20:50:31

Ric - gloomy. sad
Ollie - gloomy. sad

Mrsmadevans Tue 02-Jan-18 21:19:26

I don't like the Ric in prison but I don't really like his character. I love Dom and Lofty and laughed out loud at their flutter tongue flirting it was brilliant.

PaddingtonBearHardStare Tue 02-Jan-18 21:46:09

Well this is cheery hmm

frazzled3ds Tue 02-Jan-18 21:46:20

Well it's looking like Ric is going to have an interesting time .... personally wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of him though.

As for Ollie, I wonder how long this story will run for? I can't see how he can ever return to being a surgeon unless there some miracle recovery!

Hating this. I want to watch Holby not a prison.

Shakey15000 Tue 02-Jan-18 22:53:17

Poor Ric sad

LineysRumBaba Tue 02-Jan-18 22:56:08

I like prison dramas. But not this, because it's going to be about drugs. Sigh.

I am sick to death of Oliver Valentine. Years and years of it.

Voice0fReason Tue 02-Jan-18 23:09:20

There didn't appear to be any patients being treated in this episode (I'm not counting Ric and Ollie)

Don't like the prison scenes, don't like where they are taking that storyline.

I'm expecting a miraculous recovery from Ollie

MyOtherProfile Tue 02-Jan-18 23:24:45

He already made remarkable progress in the space of one episode!

I hate prison dramas because they are too gritty. That's why I don't watch them. So I'm not going to watch those bits of Holby.

LineysRumBaba Tue 02-Jan-18 23:30:48

I loved the Shawshank Redemption, Green Mile, Prisoner Cell Block H.

Ric however will just be Fighty Fighty Tramadol Nights and about as tedious as Oliver Valentine's dialogue with his mother.

calzone Tue 02-Jan-18 23:31:47

I might quit Holby

It’s dire.

MyOtherProfile Tue 02-Jan-18 23:37:15

That's how I feel calzone. Feels like this week is the final straw. Only the hope of the trailer is making me want to hang on there.

Emily7708 Wed 03-Jan-18 00:23:19

That was the worst episode ever. I’ve been watching Holby forever but think it’s run its course for me now. Shame.

caoraich Wed 03-Jan-18 00:33:19

I think so too Calzone. I actually paused it 15 minutes in so that I could then fast forward through the prisony bits.

I'll give it a chance to redeem itself next week and if no joy I'll find something to Netflix at 8pm on a Tuesday instead!

TheDrsDocMartens Wed 03-Jan-18 03:40:38

Place marking not watched yet.

SleepingStandingUp Wed 03-Jan-18 09:31:07

I'm hoping doing prison vidoes means he'll be put soon

Hesperatum Wed 03-Jan-18 10:08:42

Holby has lost its way. Need Mr Hanssen, Jac, Serena and Mr Hope. So bored by Dom and Lofty.

Emily7708 Wed 03-Jan-18 11:38:42

God yes - the Dom and Lofty thing is beyond dull. I’ve had enough of Ollie now - too many ridiculous storylines over too many years so he needs to leave. I’d like Mr T back (but not Mo!), and used to enjoy the Jac and Johnny partnership. And when Chrissie Williams and Harry Tressler were in it.

Will give it another week and then give up, I think.

That was a pretty depressing episode, I have to say.
