That last thread filled up quickly! Here's a new one for us.

As a PP said, I can't quite forget how vile Dom was to Malik in the early days, so his rehabilitation has never made me warm to him. It looks as though his troubles aren't over, though. Carol to the rescue?

What was he buying??? 🙄 🙄 🙄

I wish Madani would grow his stubble back.... 💙 💙 💙

I think absence makes the heart grow fonder. I enjoyed last night's episode more than any I have for a long time.
Except for Max. She's so dull in her superior snarling I just switch off and check Facebook when she comes on.

Ah, but Cam doesn't know that, Sleeping, and if Donna tells him she restored it but doesn't say what it said it'll send him into a panic, won't it? Then all we have to do is wonder whether it'll all end on the roof or in the Basement of Doom. grin

Ffs, nothing in the god damn voicemail.

Optimist1 Tue 02-Jun-20 21:19:56

Ooh, Jac and Medani finally got it on! It was nice to see them equally enthusiastic.

God knows what legal and ethical lines Max was overstepping when she allowed Guy in the operating theatre with her. What will HH make of Selfie's return?

Donna's grief was very well acted IMO.

(I'm not going to say anything about Essie and her entourage, as they just irritate me too much.)

About bloody time!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

What happened to waiting lists? They just walked into HC and get given a bed! 🤔 🤔 🤔

Elderflower14 Tue 02-Jun-20 17:49:22

Looking forward to watching.. Let's hope there's lots of Madani to lust over... 💙 💙 💙 💙

Holby is back on tonight and had dropped off my planner for anyone who doesn't realise!!

It’s back on 2 June!

@Elderflower14, we watched Phantom of the Opera yesterday evening and I had NO idea it was Madani playing the Phantom until I saw it on Wiki when I was looking up something else about the performance - proper jaw on the floor moment, he really was good!
DH's first thought was what on earth is a performer like that doing in Holby?! grin

I'm still in shock about Xav, I can't believe they actually killed him off

THis is so weird - I am watching an old episode of the bill with Fletch and Jac - but she has a huge gap between her front teeth! In fact, pretty much everyone in the Bill is or has been in a soap or long running TV drama.

Elderflower14 Fri 17-Apr-20 12:52:40

Interview with Ramin in The Guardian... 💙 💙

SweetestThing Fri 17-Apr-20 11:38:36

I watched the bit where Xav gets knocked down again and he is definitely still speaking into his phone when the bike hits him.

Please let Cam get his come-uppance. Xav deserves this.

Gatehouse77 Fri 17-Apr-20 11:11:36

I can’t believe they killed off Xav😱
DD and I have never liked Cam - a huge wet blanket with his pathetic puppy dog eyes - and we’re really pissed off when he came back.

SleepingStandingUp Fri 17-Apr-20 09:12:55

I'm hoping something will come of it. The Police would surely interview the cyclist so I'm hoping it'll be mentioned.
Donna will realise he's missing the bag and the Police will say someone stole it. Shl listen to the voicemail and hear the voice. She won't recognise it until one day she's alone with Cam and it'll click...

Tbf to the cyclist, she'd just been knocked off her bike and would have been in shock. Totally reasonable she wouldn't have clocked Cams clothes and caking his name wouldn't have meant anything either. She wouldn't necessarily have clocked who shouted until someone actually her his name.
Maybe Donna will track her to ask about Xav s final minutes and then she'll mentuon they're was someone else there, she thought he'd knew him but he ran off and then she'll listen to the voice mail...

I'd just like for the "villain" level to be set at the Max or Selfie level

DominaShantotto Fri 17-Apr-20 09:01:59

The worst bit about lockdown to be honest - all the good TV is stopping!

SoupDragon Fri 17-Apr-20 08:51:43

surely the cyclist would have said that a man in scrubs called out to Xav, calling him by name, then grabbed his bag and legged it?

Yes. That was just daft.

Optimist1 Fri 17-Apr-20 08:13:46

I did read that Holby City had real, working ventilators as part of their props, and they'e handed them over to the NHS to be put to more use.

Yes it did seem odd they didn't talk about Covid although why would they, in a fictional hospital before we went into lockdown!

So that's it til after lockdown and then some I guess? Presumably after lockdown they will start to film again and we will have a few weeks wait before they start showing the new episodes?

LuxuryWoman2020 Thu 16-Apr-20 20:54:56

Xav was lovely and very attractive so I'm very upset about this episode and bored of these killer doctor storylines. I actually quite like Guy Self and I'd like to see the relationship between him and Max
I've found it hard to watch though through Covid even though I know the filming is months ago. It seems strange to see a hospital carrying on as usual (well, killer doctors, same day recruitment/resignation , unofficial adoptions notwithstanding)
