Ever since his wife Natalie died earlier this year, AAU ward manager Adrian ‘Fletch’ Fletcher has been desperately struggling to provide for his family. And, this week, Fletch and his children are in crisis when they’re evicted from their home!
The only person aware of Fletch’s financial woes is hospital porter Clifford, who’s been trying to persuade Fletch to help him steal pharmaceutical drugs from a delivery van for cash. So when Fletch arrives late for work with his belongings stuffed into plastic bags, dodgy Clifford reminds him that the theft could solve all his problems.
With nowhere else to go, however, Fletch is forced to camp out with his family in the hospital basement. As his children sleep in their makeshift beds, a sobbing Fletch hits rock bottom and makes a call – will he agree to be Clifford’s partner in crime?
Meanwhile, Dominic’s determined that his mother won’t be staying long at Holby but it seems she has other plans and Dom’s stunned when he discovers she’s got a job at the hospital. Can Dominic find the courage to ask her to leave?
Elsewhere, Elliot is concerned that Oliver is not engaging with life. Oliver dismisses his concerns – but it seems he’s not going to be able to dismiss Zosia as easily…
Also, Arthur’s anxiety spirals out of control.
