David is suspended
Nurse David Hide’s world comes crashing down when boss and friend Charlie Fairhead reports him for assault!
During a heated argument last week David pushed Charlie away from him, causing the senior medic to fall to the ground. This week Charlie tells apologetic David to forget about the incident before reporting him to director of nursing Adrian ‘Fletch’ Fletcher!
Fletch (Holby City’s Alex Walkinshaw) immediately launches an investigation and suspends devastated David from nursing duties. Has Charlie ruthlessly set David up to protect wife Duffy’s dementia secret?
As a broken-hearted and confused David packs up his locker, believing he’s lost the job he loves, Robyn attempts to fight his corner. Meanwhile, Duffy is shocked when Charlie reveals David’s time at the ED could be over…
Connie’s attacker revealed?
Away from the ED clinical lead Connie Beauchamp is crippled with anxiety at home, unable to sleep and jumping at every night noise. Back at work, however, it’s business as usual when Maureen McLeod (guest star Melanie Kilburn) is admitted to the ED following an altercation with boyfriend Bill Danes (Detectorists star David Sterne) about his deceased wife.
During treatment Maureen behaves strangely around Connie while Bill’s openly aggressive towards the clinical lead. Disturbed, Connie digs around with receptionist Noel’s help and discovers Bill was married to former patient, Naomi Danes – played by EastEnders Anita Dobson in 2017 – who sadly died in the ED.
Are Bill and Maureen connected to the unsolved brutal assault on Connie? Or is exhaustion catching up on the traumatised clinical lead?
Dani stalks Ruby
Viewers may remember Dani recently doing something to Ruby’s phone when the young paramedic’s back was turned. This week it’s revealed that Dani installed a tracking device and is following unsuspecting Ruby’s every move.
Alarm bells start to ring for Ruby when Dani begins turning up at the scenes of accidents and repeatedly tries to spend time with her. Disturbed by Dani’s obsessive behaviour, will baffled Ruby put two and two together?
Also this week
Elle is concerned about Connie’s state of mind when she insists she knows who her attacker is.
Duffy has a big decision to make regarding her future at the ED.
Will is convinced he can help a disturbed young patient, but Robyn and Archie disagree with his methods. Is his competitiveness clouding his judgement about what’s best for a vulnerable patient?
And Holby City crossover guest Fletch is curious about Charlie’s motives for reporting David.
