A strong-willed 77-year old, Annie Hackett, coerces Ric Griffin into doing an operation to remove part of her colon, against his advice. Simon Shaughnessy gets very drunk while still on duty, and has to be escorted off the premises by his family. Kath Shaughnessy's suspicions about Chrissie Williams and Alistair Taylor are as good as confirmed. Alex arranges to spend the evening with Samantha Kennedy, and she surreptitiously plies him with more drinks than he was wanting. He leaves temporarily to finish discussions with Sophie, but is then pressured into attending a road traffic accident. While driving back to rejoin Samantha, a child runs out in front of his car too late for him to avoid. He is then given a routine breathalyser on the spot.

    In the maternity ward, two couples are involved in a surrogate baby case that starts to unravel, partly due to Lisa Fox acting against instructions. Marija has to make the agonising choice between Danny Shaughnessy and her original husband, Goran Ovcar. But Danny's pain of rejection is short lived when he finds his mother's black eye. Alex Adams's tribunal hearing on suspension pending his drink-driving trial goes well, and Samantha Kennedy confesses to Chrissie Williams that she was responsible for getting him drunk. Alex then inappropriately advises the single father of a child heart patient, causing him to cross swords with Alistair Taylor who is in charge of the case. The situation gets even worse when Alex asks Anton Meyer to do a very risky operation on the child against Alistair's professional judgment. Things go from bad to worse for Alistair, as Anton provokes him to resign, and Janice overhears one too many conversations about his affair, setting the seal on her decision to separate from him. The rain drenched car-park is the scene for Danny's violent confrontation with his father, and the birth of a baby to a woman who had wanted a relaxed, natural childbirth in a birthing pool with candles and music.

    At a party of her boyfriend Sean's, Sandy Harper is the victim of the 'date rape' drug, administered by Sean for an associate of his to take advantage of her. Lisa Fox and Kath Shaughnessy Fox are starting to cope with Terry's death. Lisa doesn't handle well a couple and their Caesarian-born daughter, who has a minor condition. Tom Campbell-Gore has been chosen to perform some pioneering surgery on a heart patient using a new robotic system. But the strain of having another of his patients die just before hand, and having to do the operation while being watched by a party of dignitaries, proves too much, and he resorts to the vodka bottle(s). Ed Keating discovers this and is put in an awkward situation of having to cover up again, but afterwards gives Tom an ultimatum.

    Owen Davis is becoming desperate to find a best man for his wedding with Chrissie Williams, which they set for two weeks' time, and gets Ed Keating to agree. Despite Ed's efforts, Tom Campbell-Gore is continuing to drink, and when he is suddenly called into theater to help with some difficult surgery, he collapses with heavy intestinal bleeding. He subsequently finds his life and career in Ric Griffin's hands, when Ric discovers the state of his liver. Kath Fox confesses to her son Danny Shaughnessy that she helped Terry to die, and is horrified to find out that she will be the main beneficiary of his intestacy. At Terry's funeral later that day the claws come out, as his ex-wife gets drunk and gives voice to her resentment. Lisa feels hurt that she didn't have a chance to say goodbye to her father, and that Kath seems to have taken over all aspects of her relationship with him. A sixteen-year-old comes into Maternity in labor, denying she is even pregnant; her step-sister and controlling mother have a battle of wills over what she should do with the baby.

    Everyone is looking forward to letting their hair down at Chrissie Williams's hen night and Owen Davis's stag night, on the night before their wedding. Chrissie leaves Sandy Harper in charge on the ward, where she has to deal with an emergency with heart patient Andy Kilner, who has a complex family history for his condition, and the revelation that new admission Johnny Slater, the man she suspects date-raped her, is positive for Hepatitis C, a sexually-transmitted disease. She finds out from Slater's wife what he and Sandy's boyfriend Sean are like, and then has a show-down with Sean. Chrissie has to have a check-up with Mubbs Hussein, during which she is forced to tell him about her uncertainty as to the father of her baby. He puts two and two together with Ed Keating's earlier semi-drunken confessions that he had recently got someone pregnant. Lisa Fox is becoming increasingly suspicious about what happened in her father's last hours, and decides to contact the police.

    Chrissie Williams confesses her true feelings to Ed Keating, just as she is about to marry Owen Davis. Owen's daughter Katie is poisonously against the marriage, seemingly having been primed by her mother. Lisa Fox and Ed manage to ensure that things eventually go to plan on the big day. At the hospital, the police start asking questions about Terry Fox's death, causing Kath Fox to become increasingly worried. The police decide the only way to resolve the matter is to ask for the exhumation of his body. In Maternity, there is a love triangle with a paternity question, when a woman with an infertile husband comes in with pelvic pain that is shown to be a complication of pregnancy. On the wards, a mother and son are admitted after a road accident: her relationship with her husband is tested when she admits what really happened in the run-up to the accident.

    Lisa Fox begins to doubt if she's done the right thing when the police exhume her father's body for a post-mortem. The police start asking awkward questions of Kath Fox and Ric Griffin, about the syringe and the diamorphine. In Maternity, a lesbian couple are having a baby, but when tragedy strikes, the mother's mother is very posessive over her grandchild. A single mum is also giving birth, but her birth partner Tony Vincent has his eye on Ben Saunders. The police interview Kath formally, and then charge her with the murder of Terry Fox.

    Ben Saunders goes on a home delivery visit, but before Lisa Fox can arrive to take charge, the mother starts a potentially dangerous labor, and Ben has to supervise the delivery in an ambulance. This will be enough to earn him his full midwifery qualification, so he stands a round of drinks after work. Kath Fox makes her first court appearance, to plead not guilty to the lesser charge of assisting a suicide. Lisa is still bitter at Kath, and makes scenes at the hospital and at Ben's drinks. In Maternity, Mubbs Hussein fights to save a mother's life, and has to call on Ric Griffin when a power vut traps the consultant in the lift. Ric was in the middle of a partial colectomy on a woman in the late stages of HIV, who decided on DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) for the operation despite the wishes of her husband, and has to leave Diane Lloyd in charge. After recovering, the woman's outlook on life seems to improve, and when she suffers a cardiac arrest, the staff have to make a difficult decision on whether to resuscitate her.

    Despite his initial uncertainties and Mubbs Hussein's ribbings, things start looking serious for Ben Saunders's love life, as Tony Vincent keeps hanging around Maternity. He helps Ben deal with a new mother, Karen Higgins, who is afraid of her fiancé, Adrian Lambert, who were brought in together after 'a road accident'. Jess Griffin gets into trouble while being assessed by Steve Waring, for letting Lambert out of the ward before he's fit to go, and for losing her temper with an irritating patient, Paul Whittard. On Darwin, a double transplant is set to be performed, when a set of heart and lungs is helicoptered in with Alex Adams, who is to assist Mr. Loftwood in performing their transplant into Michael Pointer and then with the transplant of Pointer's heart into Ros Bell. Problems arise and Alex is forced to perform the transplant himself, into another patient, causing deep disappointment for the Bell family. Sean Hunt comes to visit Sandy Harper at work to demand money from her, and extract it any way he can, stealing from sources on the ward. Mr. Loftwood offers Alex a locum position at Holby, which he hesitatingly accepts.

    On the first day of his return, Alex Adams is called upon to be in two places at once, when a heart patient is readmitted and requires emergency surgery, while Ed Keating has got another patient ready for him to perform an open heart operation. Maternity handles two births, one of which is that of the wife of the emergency heart operation patient, the other that of a woman who runs even her love-life her by signed contracts. Sandy Harper continues stealing from the patients, despite the installation of a CCTV system. When Mubbs Hussein performs Chrissie Owen's ultrasound scan, it shows up a worrying potential first sign of Down Syndrome. John Philips reappears to complicate Ben Saunders's life. Mubbs stands up Lisa Fox to meet up with Jess Griffin, and after he helps her retrieve her letter of resignation, they kiss passionately in an office.

The Maternity team have a heart-breaking day when patient Josie Wallis loses her baby at 20 weeks. Lisa Fox confides in Chrissie Williams that she thinks that her relationship with Mubbs Hussein is finally getting serious, until she sees one of the security videotapes of what Mubbs and Jess Griffin got up to. Ben Saunders continues to be pestered by John Philips, who doesn't want to let go of the possibility of a relationship with him. Sean Hunt steps up the pressure even further on Sandy Harper to obtain money for him by any means possible, and finally tells her that she means nothing to him.

    John Philips interrupts Ben Saunders & Tony Vincent's evening with a revelation that leads to a fight that results in Tony losing his kidneys in an emergency operation. Lisa Fox secretly gives the security video of Mubbs Hussein & Jess Griffin to Ric Griffin, while continually making snide remarks to Mubbs. Mike Cassidy, the husband of a woman who dies in theatre, finds it hard to come to terms with her death, until Tom Campbell-Gore realises he's an alcoholic too. Sandy Harper is still trying to get her hands on more money, by hook or by crook. She can't believe her luck with one terminally-ill elderly patient, Charlie Peters, who gives her the remainder of his life savings. In Maternity, Coral Garrett's birth does not go according to her meticulous plan, increasing the friction between Mubbs & Lisa, causing Owen Davis to call them into his office for a dressing-down. When he suggests Mubbs resigns, Mubbs taunts him about his wife Chrissie's past, and her recent relationship with Ed Keating.

    A long night shift turns into day for several of the Holby staff. Painful memories are recalled for Diane Lloyd when she is asked to examine Lorna McKay, a suspected victim of an attempted rape.

Alex Adams starts taking propanolol to control his increasing hand tremors. Tom Campbell-Gore becomes increasingly attracted to the hospital psychiatrist, Dr. Anita Forbes. The tension between Chrissie Davis and Ed Keating increases as they are caught up in the secret homosexual affair of a married patient, Mitch Roper.

    Kath Fox's trial continues, with unflattering revelations about her and son Danny Shaughnessy's pasts, though Chrissie Davis gives a good character reference.

    Events are dominated by the aftermath of the joy ride that ended in tragedy. Robbie Waring emerges unscathed from the stolen car, and runs off, leaving Alan Bridger trapped in the driver's seat. In the other car, both Ben Saunders and Steve Waring are trapped and seriously injured. When the paramedics arrive, they extract Alan, but for the other car they have to call out an emergency surgical team, which falls to Ric Griffin and Diane Lloyd; Lisa Fox arrives later. Ric realises that Steve's leg is too seriously damaged to save, and they can only get Ben out if they remove Steve first, so Ric performs an amputation. When they remove Ben, he is so badly injured that he dies at the scene. Meanwhile, in Maternity, Julie Redding, a fellow midwifery student of Lisa Fox's is having her baby, accompanied by the three potential fathers. Diane has persuaded Alex Adams to have his hand tremor seen by a specialist, Ethan Hope. While Alan is in AAU, being attended by an unsympathetic Jess Griffin, he has a cardiac emergency, and has to be operated, with Alex getting Ed Keating to do most of the surgery.

    It's Kath Fox's first day back at work after the trial, and Ric Griffin puts her in charge of the care of Steve Waring, who is blaming himself for the way Robbie has turned out and Ben's death. Lisa Fox has arranged to take off her last days on Maternity, and comes in just before she is due to fly to Scotland for Ben Saunders's funeral, but is cajoled into doing a shift. Lisa and Mubbs Hussein have a case of a patient with cerebral palsy, Molly Jarratt, who they find is carrying quads, following IVF, and have to counsel her on selective termination. Owen Davis gives her her leaving presents of a doll baby, and a camera. Dr. Ethan Hope suspects Alex Adams's hand tremor is the first sign of early onset Parkinson's, and prescribes medication to test whether it is. Despite the tremor, Alex operates on Andy Bowen, a man with a heart condition, who has a daughter keen to use his recuperation to get her separated parents back together. A beautiful Romanian, Irina Grosna, is in for a heart operation, but Ed Keating thinks she is not well enough, which means that she will have to return home, and stay on medication for life.

    Lisa Fox's first day in her new job in the Acute Assessment Unit (AAU) is a dramatic one: an elderly patient, Reg Vaughan, is brought in with multiple injuries following an assault, and is then stabbed by an intruder. Lisa apprehends the assailant until Security arrive, while Jess Griffin organises emergency medical attention for the man. When the police arrive, it turns out that the man is a suspected pedophile, who has been attacked by vigilante members of his community; but Lisa suspects he may actually be harmless. Chrissie Davis is finding living with her mother too much to bear, and decides to move out. A woman is brought in to one of the main wards with a genetic heart condition, which may affect her daughters, one of whom was given for adoption at birth and is just re-establishing contact with her. Sally O'Toole is brought in with abdominal pains, which are diagnosed as Crohn's disease, requiring an operation that will prevent her joining her boyfriend, Cameron Andrews, in their new job at an Outward Bound center. Steve Waring is very depressed about his condition, but after Jess Grffin takes him round the hospital and Ric Griffin asks Dr. Anita Forbes to visit him, he starts to recover. Forbes bumps into Tom Campbell-Gore on her way out, with the meeting being very awkward. Steve suddenly collapses with a pulmonary embolism, and the team are unable to bring him round.

    New midwife Rosie Sattar starts work, and gets over-involved in the case of Sarah Cullen, a first-time mother who finds it all too much when her partner walks out. Tensions between Chrissie and Owen Davis rise when her pregnancy runs into difficulties, and she has to be kept in for observations for 24 hr. Danny Shaugnessy returns from Australia, saying that he wants to go back on an indefinite working trip. Sandy Harper takes his suggestion that she'd love it there too literally, and starts planning to join him. After a shaky start, professional relations between Jess Grifin and Lisa Fox in AAU settle down. On Keller Ward, a young police officer Lee Walmsley, brought in for assault injuries, is found to have testicular cancer, which overshadows the major professional differences with his police partner and his father.

    Diane Lloyd's suspicions that she is pregnant with Steve Waring's child is confirmed by Mubbs Hussein, and she immediately asks him to perform a termination that afternoon. Events conspire to make her day particularly difficult, and she is left to hold the fort while Ric Griffin goes to perform his first private operation for Marcus Denby at the Hadlington Clinic. Ric promises part of his earnings to his daughter Jess so she can pay Lisa Fox some rent. In AAU, Lisa and Jess have to cope with the distant attitude of the day's agency nurse, Dawn Smyth, who does little to help with the case of Ashley Haines, a young man brought in with multiple rib fractures, caused, he says, when he rescued a woman from a violent burglar, but his grandfather disbelieves him, and it is not until after Ash dies that the truth is confirmed to his grandfather. Two estranged brothers and their wives are in Holby at the same time: one to give birth to their first baby; and the other with their chronically sick child, who needs a bone-marrow transplant, but can't find a matching donor.

When Alex has to perform a keyhole procedure on her with an audience, his assistant Ed Keating is called away, and Tom Campbell-Gore steps into the breach. Diane Lloyd is back at work very soon after the termination, and has an emotionally overwhelming day with Alex, Chrissie Davis and a demanding patient, Declan Callaghan, who case she becomes very involved with. Through the day Chrissie has increasing pains and bleeding, and goes to see Mubbs Hussein, who calls in Owen Davis to do an emergency Caesarian section. They have difficulty keeping Chrissie alive, and the baby girl is too weak to survive. Owen has to break the news to her in ITU, and Chrissie chooses to see the baby as its life support is switched off.

Chrissie has asked her mother to make the funeral arrangements, but then tells her that she doesn't want her or Owen to come, though they do. A young man, Nigel Kimber, is in for a dual live-donor lung transplant, from the women he thinks are his mother and aunt, though in reality their relationships are aunt and mother. The 'aunt' has a stomach condition she doesn't mention, which causes a contingency in the operating theatre, in which Alex Adams questions Tom Campbell-Gore's clinical judgment. Alex is still taking the L-dopa medication for his possible Parkinson's, even though it's causing him severe nausea. A young woman, Holly Singleton, is admitted to AAU with an asthma attack, but it is soon realised she is going into premature labor, even though she hasn't told her overbearing mother that she is pregnant.

    The shy, new health care assistant, Nic Yorke, sparks off a scramble between the female nurses for his attentions at work and at Lisa Fox & Jess Griffin's flat-warming party, but he seems to fancy Sandy Harper most, and gets them to offer their spare room to her instead of to him. Having not seen each other for years, Lisa's first love, David Jones, is admitted to AAU, and they have some emotionally painful catching-up to do. Ric Griffin has to perform two operations on Perry Green, a young man whose parents are going through a messy break-up. Having been precipitated into it by Ed Keating, and against his better judgment, Alex Adams operates on Kim Taylor, a lung-cancer patient who has only days to live, despite battling his increasingly severe symptoms of Parkinson's. He persuades Diane Lloyd to obtain some of the drugs to counter the condition. She is invited on a second date by Tom Campbell-Gore, but he is called back from it by the need to take over from Alex, whose symptoms suddenly worsen in mid-operation. Campbell-Gore is furious with Alex that he has continued to operate and covered up the condition, and also with Diane because she knew about it.

Elizabeth Woods is brought back into Holby after an alleged mugging, with her husband keeping a close watch on her. He intimidates her into accusing Zubin Khan of rape in front of Tom Campbell-Gore, so he has to suspend Khan and call in the police, who arrest Khan when his story fails to match some important facts that they uncover independently.

Alex Adams faces the toughest decision of his life, on whether to undergo Charles Merrick's new brain surgery to cure his Parkinson's. Dave Ross, a recent ex-con, is in for a heart operation with Campbell-Gore & Ed Keating; he is attended by his girlfriend, Penny Rook, whose father is still inside and who recognises Ed from the visiting room there.

Ric Griffin is devastated when his son Leo is admitted to the hospital with suspected pneumonia, but with traces of heroin in his blood. A life-and-death operation on him is then required, where Alex Adams makes a frightening discovery, just as he's about to get back into the operating theater for the first time since his brain operation. Jack Swan is brought in having suffered accidental injuries when he blacked out, which is traced to the painkillers he had been taking, which have also had a more insidious affect.

    Ric Griffin is formally appointed the new Clinical Director, and one of his first tasks is to smooth over the nurses' ill-feeling over Diane Lloyd's remarks about their incompetence in the recent death of patient Sara Palmer. Life is further complicated by the team conducting a formal inspection of the hospital reaching Keller & Darwin. Lisa Fox decides to undertake the task of RCN representative. Mubbs Hussein's parents set him up on a blind date with a distant cousin, Nat, but he rejects the idea of settling down any time soon. Owen Davis and Tricia Williams go back to the flat she now shares with her daughter Chrissie for an afternoon of love, but Chrissie's day goes from bad to worse, and she decides to go home early.

    The recent unexplained death of the patient Sara Palmer puts Ric Griffin & Zubin Khan under mounting pressure, when it is found that the morphine pump used was not faulty. Owen Davis tells Tricia Williams he wants to put some distance between them, so she applies to become Ric's PA. Three RTA victims are brought in: Len Betchley, the driver who had been drinking, with lung damage; Sonia Shaw, his pregnant fiancée; and Val Brennon, the pedestrian who was hit by the vehicle, with a ruptured spleen. Zubin is hard-pressed to stay professionally detatched, since his wife was killed by a drunk driver five years previously. The trauma induces an early labor, which the baby doesn't survive. The victim turns out to have an even more serious injury.

    The pressure piles up on Kath Fox relentlessly during the day: a cantankerous old patient who won't take her medication, continual snide remarks from Lisa Fox, criticisms from Kelly Yorke, and a gruelling interview with a panel lead by Helen Grant, in which she makes insinuations about the number of patients who have recently died under Kath's care. Kath eventually tells Ric Griffin that she's quitting. Rosie & Sami Sattar take Mubbs Hussein on a blind date with their friend Uma Karim, but things don't go smoothly when Mubbs suggests taking her to a lap-dancing club.

Chloe Palmer is brought in with a severe abcess, needing surgery. She is the daughter of Sara Palmer, whose recent death is the subject of a continuing investigation. Ric Griffin persuades Kath Fox to return to work, but then changes his mind and asks her to take some holiday, when Palmer and her relatives discover that she has been put in the same room where her mother died, despite Kath's best efforts to find an alternative. At the same time on Keller is Amir Irani, a man with appendicitis that Ric discovers on the operating table also has terminal abdominal cancer. Irani's desire to know before he dies whether his daughter is really his causes deep ructions with her. Mubbs Hussein throws caution to the winds when he has to save the life of an HIV-positive patient, Ginny Osbourne. Rosie Sattar suspects that it was because he wanted to impress Rubinda Shah, who is observing in Maternity for the day.

    In the wake of a major rail crash, the wards are full, and the staff overloaded, especially Ric Griffin. Mubbs Hussein's date lets him down at the last minute, so he persuades Rosie Sattar to pretend to be his date, to meet his parents. One of the crash victims, Jason Rees, appears to be in total shock after the death of his wife, hardly acknowledging the severe injuries he received, and refusing to come to terms with being a father, the baby having been delivered at the scene as the mother was dying. Zubin Khan treats a patient, Caroline Dewer, who is a professional escort, for whom he has been a client. She is pregnant, possibly by Zubin, and the pregnancy will be jeopardised by the operation she needs. Unfortunately, she has Bernie 'The Butcher' Farraday to perform it, and when he botches things, Zubin complains to him and to Ric. In Maternity, Nina Hargreaves starts giving birth prematurely, while attending an ante-natal class. While in labor, she springs another surprise on her husband.

    Owen Davis & Tricia Williams return from their holiday together, and deliberately enter the Holby premises separately. Kath Fox returns from her enforced leave to find an overly competent Kelly Yorke seemingly after her job. When Ed Keating sees them, Tricia's holiday snaps threaten to make public her relationship with Owen. Beth Oliver has severe abdominal bleeding, and on the operating table is found to have shrunken kidneys. During the surgery, surgeon Richard Smedley increasingly annoys Diane Lloyd. Ric Griffin eventually finds out what drugs Beth has been on and why, and puts her on an alternative, but shortly after, she dies from cardiac arrest - another death on Kath Shaughnessy's ward. In Maternity, Jodie Lewis, a woman with a weak heart, has her baby by Cesarian, followed by a cardiac arrest, which substantially worsens her already poor state of health. She is keen for her husband to get together with her sister Louise, to give the baby a mother and father after she dies. In the evening, after work, several of the surgeons attend a charity ball, at which Ric Griffin successfully bids £3000 he doesn't have on a TV for his daughter's birthday present, and Zubin Khan comes to the rescue of Caroline Dewer, who is there professionally accompanying Smedley.

    Ric Griffin is worried because the cheque for the TV has bounced, meaning he can't afford to get his daughter Jess a decent present for her 21st birthday. Jess and the other nurses spend the day preparing for her party, inviting all the eligible men they can find. Owen Davis takes Tricia Williams, but when Chrissie (who is now his ex-wife, as their divorce has just completed) arrives, he spends more time with her, and they end up getting passionate in one of the bedrooms. Ric is in another bedroom smoking dope on top of his champagne consumption, when Kelly Yorke comes in. He bemoans the terrible day he's had, and when she can't cheer him up, starts kissing him, at which point Lisa Fox stumbles in. Shortly after, he's called back to Holby to be given the results of the post-mortem on Beth Oliver, which shows that she had been given a large amount of insulin in her intravenous drip. On Darwin Ward, Billy Harvey is being admitted following a severe angina attack, when he spots his estranged daughter Rachel on her way into Maternity. She is there for a pregnancy test, wanting an immediate termination. When she still doesn't want to talk to him, it exacerbates his condition: he tries walking down to see her to apologise for his part in the death of her first child. Dean Shepherd is brought in to Keller Ward with abdominal pain, which is soon found to be from a hole in the bowel associated with a large tumor. Ric Griffin and Diane Lloyd have a hard task persuading him to consent to an operation, and only succeed because his ex-girlfriend, Karen Edwards, promises to stay until he comes round afterwards, though after he goes into theater, she changes her mind.

Mubbs Hussein cools his burgeoning relationship with Rosie Sattar, because he thinks she is getting back together with her husband, but when she tells him her marriage is definitely over, he agrees to go out with her again. On Keller Ward, Ross Gilmore is brought in with severe gunshot wounds, his wife with a crushed hand, and his son with abdominal bruising; it takes Kelly Yorke and Diane Lloyd some time to get to the bottom of what happened, and get everyone treated appropriately. In Maternity, mother-to-be Pippa Barratt consults Mubbs about whether her baby has inherited Huntington's disease from the father who is as yet untested. Kelly is increasingly desperate to tell her brother Nic what she has been doing, and when she does, and tells him that they have to leave and make a new life elsewhere, he is devastated and refuses to go with her.

    An hour can be a long time at Holby. Kelly Yorke decides to leave Holby and start a completely new life somewhere far away, and persuades brother Nic to come with her. Out in the country, they have a heart-to-heart about why she has done what she has, and she tells him for the first time how their father abused her as a child, and why she drowned him in the bath. He talks her into returning to Holby, and after leaving him at the hospital for a date with Jess Griffin, she goes to visit their mother from whom they have been estranged for years. Meanwhile, at the hospital a family are brought in after a road traffic accident, with at least two of them severely injured, needing immediate life-saving surgery. At that moment, Tom Campbell-Gore walks in through the door, having broken off his relationship with Anita Forbes in New York, and returned to a new ost at Holby. He takes charge of the major surgeries required, in Ric Griffin's absence, but doesn't get the warm welcome he might have expected.

    gs: Andrew Lewis [ Paul Rose (anesthetist) ], Ellie Haddington [ Nina Yorke ], Phillippa Wilson [ Vicky Johnston ], Mark Adams [ Derek Johnston ], Adam Paul Harvey [ Scott Johnston ], Karen Shenaz David [ Eve Hatton ], Doug Rao [ Graham Hatton ]

    Eve Hatton, a former model, is in Maternity for a check-up, but Rosie Sattar thinks she and the baby are underweight, and birth has to be induced that day, which is overseen by the woman's husband who repeatedly berates her for not eating enough during the pregnancy. Mubbs Hussein takes his coming date with Rosie too seriously for her, but they end up at her house with a take-away Chinese meal, which gets left on the table as their passion carries them away. Jess Griffin lends her father £20, but is then incensed when he gambles with it, even though he wins. Vicky Johnston, a woman with severe Peripheral Vascular Disease being looked after by her overstressed son, undergoes surgery to remove a blood clot in her leg. Meanwhile, an unknown woman is brought into the hospital with near-fatal stab wounds, having been left for dead in a street. Tom Campbell-Gore and Diane Lloyd save her life in theater, but Tom later complains to Ric Griffin about Diane's attitude. When the patient is brought onto the ward to recover, Nic Yorke recognises her as his mother, and immediately realises that Kelly must be responsible. He confronts Kelly, and she says she will confess all to the police, but shortly after interferes with her mother's life-support equipment. Kath Fox interrupts her, but too late to save the patient's life, and follows her as she flees through the hospital, confronting her alone in an empty room, where Kelly stabs her to make a get-away.

    Zubin Khan finds Kath Fox bleeding badly in an empty room at the hospital. Nic Yorke keeps a vigil by his mother's bedside till she regains consciousness, and she confirms Kelly's story of her leaving them to the predations of their father. Tom Campbell-Gore thinks Ric Griffin and Zubin are ganging up on him when he flexes his muscles and is put in his place by the big guns. Tricia Williams returns to complete a nursing refresher course and is stuck with her daughter Chrissie, with whom her manner causes friction. Nic goes round to see Kelly at her flat, to find her in the living room with the gas on. When he switches the light on, it ignites, and he is badly injured.

    Nic and Kelly Yorke are brought in to Holby City, fighting for their lives: Nic is the more severely injured, and is put in the Intensive Treatment Unit; Kelly is in a side-room of Darwin, with a police guard on the door. Their mother has recovered sufficiently to visit them both. Kath Fox continues her recovery, but still manages to oversee activities on the ward from her sickbed. Ric Griffin has to meet with his bankruptcy administrator, and Zubin Khan goes along to provide moral support, but is astounded to learn that Ric's debts total £150,000. Tom Campbell-Gore hosts a party at which Tricia Williams disgraces herself, getting very drunk. In Maternity, a homeless mother-to-be, Millie Strachan, is befriended by Joe West, who has just lost his father to cancer at the hospital.

    With his life hanging in the balance, Nic Yorke makes an emotional request to see his sister before she is moved out to a secure hospital. While speaking with her, his condition deteriorates rapidly, and he dies in theater. Rosie Sattar passes up spending New Year's Eve with Mubbs Hussein in order to be with her children, and the opportunity to tell her separated husband Sami how she feels. So Mubbs sees in the New Year together with Chrissie Williams, instead. Diane Lloyd unthinkingly lends Ric Griffin her credit card and he uses it for an on-line gambling session. A hard drinker, Eddie Franks, is in because of an accident; during examination, Ric finds he has terminal liver disease, which the man's new fiancée, Anne Fryer, can't handle. In Maternity, Ruth Carmichael has a traumatic birth, not helped by trying to shake off the baby's father, her ex-boyfriend Clive Phillips.

    Chrissie Williams and Mubbs Hussein's New Year gets off to a surprising start, when they wake up together after a rather drunken "night before", though it soon turns acrimonious. Ed Keating visits his father in prison, and learns that he will be released on parole in a few weeks. Tom Campbell-Gore is keen to use a heart that is available at Holby on one of Holby's patients, rather than let it go to another hospital, as demanded by the official allocation system. It falls to an unfortunate hospital administrator, Susan Green, to try to keep things done by the book. In Maternity, when some minor surgery is required to assist the birth, the father passes out at the sight of the blood.

    Ellis Morgan is a heart patient with terminal cancer, who wants Ric Griffin to perform a high-risk operation to remove the primary tumor to extend his life. Ric is initially unsure whether to do it, and Diane Lloyd is even more unsure, suspecting that Ric's willingness to be persuaded is financially motivated, as it will be a private operation, the fee for which will get him out of his immediate problems. She confides her fears in Tom Campbell-Gore, who offers to help Ric with his addiction. Ric is angry at her betrayal of confidence, and later admits to Zubin Khan that he took the risk on the operation for kicks. Meanwhile, Tom is called away to operate on the heart of Jimmy Taylor, a man admitted with chest pains, but who left when Tricia Williams told him it was probably indigestion. In Maternity, Mubbs Hussein makes a hasty decision, against Rosie Sattar's cautioning, that ends up costing the life of the premature baby of mysterious mother Emma Bennet.

    Zubin Khan persuades Ric Griffin to see a psychiatrist about his gambling addiction, after Ric takes a risk with the life of a patient by operating on her without a supply of tranfusable blood. Jess Griffin debates about whether to go to Nic Yorke's funeral, despite her father initially warning her against it. A heart becomes available from a road death victim; Tom Campbell-Gore is so keen to sieze on the chance to save a patient of his, Billy, that he is deceitful about the situation on the permission when the donor's mother tries to change her mind. Zubin is angry when he finds himself answerable to the relatives for this trickery.

    It's Nic Yorke's funeral, and Jess Griffin is the only one from the hospital to attend, though there's also his mother, and his sister under guard. On return to the hospital, Jess is upset with the other staff, and then visits Kelly in prison. When she returns, there comes news aout Kelly. There's a tense confrontation between Mubbs Hussein and Sami Sattar, which results in Sami punching Mubbs, and Sami then disappearing with the two children, without telling Rosie where he's taking them. Greg Martin is in the end stage of esophagal cancer, and is brought in by his wife Elaine. After Tom Campbell-Gore operates on him, his wife confesses to him that she has been unfaithful. In Maternity, a single mother, Jane Fisher, goes into labor early, attended by the baby's late father's mother, Anne Walace, who is annoyingly bossy.

    Mubbs Hussein finds it difficult to understand Rosie Sattar's anxiety over the continuing disappearance of her husband with their children. There's friction between Kath Fox and Tricia Williams during the day, so tricia invites Kath and Diane Lloyd for a drink, where they proceed to get legless. In Maternity, a young woman, Gemma Saunders, gives birth to a baby she wants adopted immediately, despite the misgivings of the father, Nathan Lake, who decides to take things into his own hands. Bridget Friar is 32 weeks into a surrogate pregnancy for her daughter Fran Lees, but develops dangerous Deep Vein Thrombosis, which Tom Campbell-Gore has to tackle surgically while Owen Davis performs a Caesarian section. Gay Rugby player David Richards is in after sustaining serious injuries in a ruck, but which turns out to have been more like a mass assault.

    Sami Sattar finally returns the children to Rosie, but says he wants a divorce. Ed Keating's father is released from prison, and takes up his son's offer of a place to stay. Kath Fox is late to work following a domestic problem, which puts her in a bad mood that is only lifted at the end of the day when she meets hospital architect Larry Phillips in the bar after work. Tom Campbell-Gore and Ed Keating perform a risky heart operation on Vince Armstrong, and after he dies, they have a sticky moment over obtaining the next-of-kin's assent for organ donation from his wife Barbara and new-found daughter Gina. Ric Griffin performs a breast cancer lumpectomy on Sarah Foster, a woman with an overly-pessimistic protective grandmother. In Maternity, Jen Hindmarsh has to have a premature Caesarian, despite the clashes between the baby's father and her previous daughter.

    Holby City and especially its AAU are stretched to breaking point with a flood of patients, after a balcony collapses at a night club, and both doctors and nurses have to work deep into the night. Ed Keating brings his father in suferring from chest pains and shortness of breath; the diagnosis and treatment of his condition pushes to the brink the professional relationship between Ed and Tom Campbell-Gore. Kate Lewis is brought in with chest pains which are diagnosed to be Marfan's Syndrome, which requires a risky heart operation. Claudia Marsh is brought in to AAU from the night club with puzzling symptoms. An unknown man, given the provisional name of "John Smith", is brought in, in a bad state; when the team is unable to save his life, Diane Lloyd takes it badly and personally.

    George Keating's recovery from surgery does not go according to plan, resulting in enormous friction between his son Ed and Tom Campbell-Gore; he ends up being put on the heart transplant waiting list. Rosie Sattar's gets the bill for the legal aspect of her custody battle, which Mubbs Hussein offers to pay, but first they must convince the authorities that they can look after the two girls. After Kath Fox lets on that she has recently met someone, Diane Lloyd's dating takes a serious turn, as she starts flirting with new doctor Peter Hodges. The two of them have to deal with the case of a middle-aged male patient accompanied by a young girl, aspects of which cause Diane concern. Ed and Tom also deal with a young boxer, Bradley Norris, who is not honest about the medical history of his heart problem. In Maternity, when patient Sylvia Dyson receives the diagnosis of an ovarian cancer, it prompts a debate with her boyfriend Phil Grant over their future, that leads to a parting.

    Now that his father's need for a heart transplant is reaching the point of no return, Ed Keating in desperation suppresses contra-indicating medical evidence, with Tom Campbell-Gore's connivance. But there is another candidate for the transplant, Ron Collins, and when Zubin Khan spots the problem with George Keating, he chooses Collins for the transplant. Mubbs Hussein has to reassure Rosie Sattar about their future, and that of her daughters. Diane Lloyd has another low-key date with new doctor Peter Hodges that leaves her slightly puzzled. Robert Pullman is admitted seriously injured in a car accident, in which his girlfriend was killed; her mother is desperate to know what happened. In Maternity, Carol Hughes is admitted with pre-eclampsia, which causes her to lose the baby, and triggers a split with her husband.

    It's the first day at Holby for two new nurses. Donna Jackson comes in late to Keller Ward after spending the night with Peter Hodges; Diane Lloyd is shocked when she finds out and ends things with him. Kath Fox has two surprises: Ric Griffin suggests she might apply for a desk job as the new Clinical Matron, and Larry Phillips suggests they fly away on a spontaneous holiday. The other new recruit, Mickie Hendrie, in Maternity has a baptism of fire, when she supports the desire of a patient, Keesha Richards, with an impending breach birth to have a normal delivery, rather than the Cesarian recommended by Mubbs Hussein. When she is escorting the patient in the hospital, the patient falls and goes into labor, and Mickie has to do some emergency care before she can be taken into theater. Mubbs blames her for what is nearly a serious outcome. Jess Griffin falls for the charms and attentions of Robert Pullman, the patient recovering from a car accident, and at his request does something professionally unethical. On Keller, Howard Martin is in for a leg blood vessel graft, but his situation is not helped by squabbling between his fiancée and his son.

    Ric Griffin is not happy about his daughter Jess's new boyfriend, the rapidly recovering Robert Pullman, nor with Tom Campbell-Gore's return to Consultant status. Kath Fox has her interview for the Clinical Matron post, but so does Chrissie Williams. Tom takes an unsuccessful risk giving a lung transplant to a young woman, Heather Palfrey, who has a premonition about not survivng, and persuades her twin sister to swap places surreptitiously at the last minute. Jack Fenton is in for investigation, which Ric Griffin finds to be a rare cancer, that he suspects was caused by some now-banned chemical that the patient may have encountered at work. In Maternity, it's Mickie Hendrie's first solo birth, and Owen Davis gives her free rein to deal with a couple who are reluctant to be delivering in a hospital.

    Kath Fox reaches a crossroads in her life as she has doubts about taking the Clinical Matron job, and decides to do something completely different with her life, possibly with Larry Phillips. Donna Jackson instigates a leaving party for her in the bar, where Kath has an emotional parting with Lisa Fox, having told her the truth about her father's death. George Keating finally gets his heart transplant, but only after Ed Keating plays loose with the paperwork for the clinical decision again, with Tom Capbell-Gore colluding. Rosie Sattar and Mubbs Hussein break up, after he loses his temper with her daughters. Jess Griffin has enough of the attentions of Robert Pullman, and breaks up with him. In Maternity, Lilly Morton & Carl Stoves face a difficult decision about whether to have a baby by IVF, fertilised with her late husband's sperm.

    Owen Davis misreads Mickie Hendrie's intentions when she invites him for a drink to discuss some questions she has. Ed Keating doesn't misread Donna Jackson when she invites him for a drink, after he has one of the most stressful days of his professional life. Ed is incensed when a lab technician, Ranklin, tries to blackmail him over the altered test results that allowed the heart transplant operation on Ed's father to proceed; Tom Campbell-Gore then tries to distance himself from what Ed did. Tom and Ed have to handle the case of a young woman, Elinor Morton, who is admitted with mysterious high blood pressure, panicky demeanor and a heart problem that develops before their eyes; they call on Ric Griffin to remove an object from her stomach, which turns out to be a packet of cocaine. When Robert Pullman is readmitted, with what he claims is a bicycle accident injury, Ric is suspicious that it is self-inflicted. In Maternity, a school-girl called Tania Burgess is admitted, accompanied by one of her teachers, Peter Royse, who may have had a role in her pregnancy, which Owen diagnoses promptly.

    Mubbs Hussein has moved out of his flat, and decides to apply for a job elsewhere, but Rosie Sattar persuades him to stay at Holby and return to the flat, when she tells him she loves him, in the car park. Lisa Fox bumps into Owen Davis ordering a drink in the bar after work, and they decide to spend the evening together. Tom Campbell-Gore proposes performing a heart bypass operation using only epidural anesthesia, on a patient not strong enough for general anesthetic, and bamboozles Paul Rose into taking part, without informing Zubin Khan, who is extremely upset when he finds out. The patient, Glen Holiwell, has trouble with two girlfriends. Glen Holiwell is in for thoracic pain, which Ric Griffin diagnoses as damage to the esophagus, but the patient turns out to be bulimic, which is spotted by Donna Jackson. In Maternity, Alison Gray has a miscarriage, which Mubbs realises is caused by a condition which appears similar to the early stages of the multiple sclerosis that she has been diagnosed with, and is able to prescribe the simple treatment, but her relationship with her boyfriend, David Knowles, is not so easy to fix.

    Diane Lloyd visits an army field hospital during a live-fire exercise, to advise on surgical techniques, but witnesses bullying among the soldiers, which results in one of the soldiers being shot for real, and then there is a substantial accident which calls upon all her surgical skills. In Maternity, Madu Vidyarthi, a woman with a weak heart who has got pregnant again against Owen Davis's advice, is in to give birth. When Mubbs Hussein calls Owen in to assist in the complex case, Lisa Fox comes in too and is obliged to tell him that Owen has been drinking, and is therefore not in a fit state to be operating, so Mubbs has to handle it himself with just advice from Owen. Lisa persuades Mubbs not to report Owen's drunkeness to the authorities.

    At Ric Griffin's bankruptcy court hearing he is given the maximum non-custodial sentence, which he tries to gloss over with his daughter Jess. As Jess goes home to relax after a stressful day, she is greeted by Robert Pullman, who accompanies her home against her instincts. Later he lets himself into her flat with keys that he had stolen from her, and tells her that he deliberately caused the accident that killed his gorlfriend, and strikes her during a heated exchange. When Donna comes home a fight he becomes increasingly violent, and gets pushed through a glass door, causing massive bleeding. He is taken to Holby, where Ric saves his life on the operating table, before he learns exactly what had happened. Ric also has to deal with Chantelle Mills, a young woman night-club singer with severe abdominal pains, which he and Diane Lloyd discover to be Crohn's Disease, a diagnosis that is not welcomed by her pushy mother and manager Mike Drummond. In Maternity there is a day of needling between Mubbs Hussein and Owen Davis, especially over Rosanna Webb, a woman in the early stages of pregnancy, that is diagnosed as ectopic, caused by syphilis which she has caught from her creepy, philandering boyfriend, Phil Locke.

    New registrar Will Curtis arrives on his first day, and acts with a confidence verging on arrogancy. Diane Lloyd asks Owen Davis out, and he accepts. He and Mubbs Hussein reconcile their differences. The diseased heart that George Keating was given requires further surgery, but the treatment for the CMV from his heart donor arouses Zubin Khan's suspicions, which makes things difficult for Ed & Tom Campbell-Gore; Will finds himself caught in the crossfire, and comes to Ed's rescue. In Maternity, Avril Coulter gives birth, but has to come with her needy son Russell being in the hospital too, with some injuries, but who is disturbingly self-centered, to the point of endangering others.

    Faruq Ahmed is a heart patient of Ed Keating's, who has difficulty taking all his medications. Ed is keen for him to have a transplant, but Tom Campbell-Gore recommends waiting and trying other treatments first. Ed's case is not helped by Ahmed having driven into Tom's car in the car park. Ed takes things into his own hands to get Ahmed to the top of the candidate list for a heart that has just become available for transplant, but his method is spotted by Zubin Khan, who complains to Ric Griffin, who has to suspend Ed while an investigation is carried out. Mubbs Hussein's plans to propose to Rosie Sattar are pre-empted by events, and she decides to postpone an answer. Sami Sattar is admitted to AAU with a bleeding ulcer after a night on the town; Rosie rushes up to see him. In Maternity, Cherise Patterson's pregnancy is complicated when Mubbs spots signs of cancer that has started spreading to other organs. During his investigations she starts going into premature labor.

    At Ed Keating's suspension hearing over the case of Faruq Ahmed, Chrissie Williams, with the connivance of Tom Campbell-Gore, refuses to cover up for him, and makes her testimony, even though she knows it conflicts with his and will result in him losing his job. Tom, Ric Griffin & Zubin Khan try to separate the conjoined baby twin daughters of Mick & Georgia Sheldon. When things start going wrong, Tom tries to get their permission to continue. Though he fails to get the father's, he continues anyway. When Ric & Zubin discover this, he is forced to resign, but not before Ed confronts him over his lack of support for him, and punches him soundly on the jaw.

Will Curtis has a formidable cancer patient to deal with: John Dunne, a famous medical speaker and former surgeon, who doesn't want the treatment Will recommends, because it might threaten his career. Because he has to work late, his wife ill-temperedly brings their two children to Holby to say goodnight. In Maternity, Gayle Horton comes in for a checkup, but tells Owen that she wants an abortion; later that day she appears in AAU, having been run down in a road accident.

In the process, Diane reluctantly tells Owen that she was once raped. Owen tries to offer sympathy, and after initially being defensive, she invites him home to share a bottle of wine.

The patient dies on the table, which Connie takes personally. Lisa Fox gives Donna Jackson a career appraisal, and despite identifying weaknesses in her job performance, which Donna tries to address, Lisa still has to reprimand her over her continuing mistakes. On Darwin Ward, Pat Cowdrey is in with a serious heart condition, but is more worried about what will happen to her teenage daughter, Kerri, and so agrees to a very risky operation proposed by Connie, to the deep concern of Will. In Maternity there is a hysterectomy patient, Eileen MacKenzie, with an apparently very cavalier attitude to sex and relationships, which causes Mickie Hendrie to think about her lack of a love life. After their night together, Owen Davis spends the day looking in vain for Diane Lloyd. When Connie visits Ric's office at the end of the day, they get carried away, but she then brings him back to earth with a bump when she tells him that she's been appointed as the new clinical director.

Diane is over-keen to give Anna Jones an operation that will probably only prolong her life by a short time; meanwhile the patient drops a bombshell on her husband about the true identity of her sister.
