There’s an emergency on AAU this week when a patient, Dean, is brought into Holby with an unexploded rocket flare embedded in his chest. It’s no surprise that maverick doctor Harry Tressler (Jules Knight) wants in on the case, especially as Ric thinks he’s not focusing enough on his medical work.

Can Holby avoid a full-scale disaster?
