Christmas is supposed to be the season of goodwill but it stirs up painful memories for Fletch (Alex Walkinshaw). And it doesn’t look like this year’s going to be any better, when his estranged dad Stephen (Jesse Birdsall) returns to Holby and a shock family secret is exposed!
Can Fletch put the past behind him and have the best Christmas ever?
Meanwhile, Christmas doesn’t hold great memories for Xavier either. Can an unlikely source convince him that, with Donna, he can now make happy ones? Also, after a turbulent 2018, can Hanssen be persuaded to return to the role of Holby CEO?
It’s not all doom and gloom at Holby this Christmas, though. Mo’s time at Holby covering for Jac has come to an end and she marks the occasion with a drink at Albie’s… and a festive sing-song with her nearest and dearest Mr T! Least someone at Holby looks set to have a Merry Christmas!
And a mysterious Santa walks the corridors of Holby – but who is it?
