    "I write my own!" Only the lovely Henrik could say that

    Poor Dom, hopefully, between Zosia & Noel, he will come out of it relatively unscathed. Who knows, maybe even the patient will come to his rescue and grass his bully up, I think that Henrik will be upset that a) he misjudged Isaac & b) that he didn't see that Dom wasn't strong enough to stand up not only to Isaac but to follow his own instincts as a doctor.

    Oh, and of course Olly phoning at 3am to advise Hanson were number 1 in the 90's with MBop! That was a laugh out loud moment )))))))))))

    Henrik was brilliant. Junior doctors hide and seek.��

    Dom was all set to leave but did he actually go through with it? To me the ending was ambiguous.

    Good to see Noel crossing over, makes it more realistic. That Isaac needs Mo on his case; she'd sort him out!

    For the first time, I felt sorry for Morven. And a little bit for jasmine. She's floundering from one disaster to another.

    Phew, Casualty last night! I was torn between scorn for its unlikely development and bring impressed with Jason Durr's acting!

    Why the hell didn't Robyn give birth in the car, under cover? A new born prem baby in torrential rain - oh, great idea!

    Yup, pretty much sums up my feelings too. The shot of her sitting on the grave after giving birth, apparently dying could only have been worse if the episode had gone out on Halloween.

    And why did Duffy, the midwife, call an ambulance while Charlie ran to Robin, surely the other way round would have been more likely?

    I'm also impressed with Max's eyesight, spotting the phone on the road in driving rain from a moving car. And how lucky it hadn't been run over by anyone else!

    But then there seems to be some unwritten Law of TV that mental illness storylines have to have a stereotype quota of above 90% and end with a huge overblown totally unbelievable crisis.

    I do feel sorry for Jason Durr though. A nice, stable job with a challenging role anda leading storyline... then that script lands.

    I did like Dylan getting David to voluntarily go with the mental health team. Also did any one else think that David's surname being Hide is a reference to Jekyll and Hide!

    Big surprise with Zosia last night! I didn't think she'd abhort the baby. Poor Ollie!

    Isaac has managed to get even worse, but the Parker story is ludicrous.

    I was confused. I don't think I've missed an episode but although I remember her being pregnant I missed the abortion bit completely yet Isaac and Mo seemed to know. Maybe I fell asleep last week at a crucial point.


    I, too, am fed up with the Essie/Parker nonsense. She'd be on my list of characters to lose but Isaac must go to the top of the list.

    I wasn't sure how Zosia would go due to her bipolar. Isaac has to have his comeuppance coming, hopefully sooner rather than later. Serena looks as if she is going to "adopt" Evie as a surrogate daughter.

    No you haven't missed an episode. We only knew about the abortion from Issac looking in her bag and seeing the after care leaflet.

    I do think the Parker story has gone on long enough.

    Zosia must have been in early pregnancy and abhorted the foetus with tablets.

    Why did they feel the need for Serena Campbell to discover a patient had her daughters heart only for her to proceed and die - seriously Holby - WHY ??

    What a strange episode tonight. As soon as it was known about the heart transplant it was obvious where the story was going. Not sure why Serena was allowed near the patient and I am sure one of the first questions would have been about when the transplant took place.

    Hope the Dom story doesn't drag on.

    I suppose it was better than Serena stalking the patient for ever after.

    I agree that they need to move quickly on with the Dom storyline. They always advertise the helpline afterwards and it would be best for those who suffer abuse in RL to see it dealt with properly. Hope Zosia isn't too loved up to help him.

    Bit of a strange one last night. Will be interesting to see how the Hanssen/Dom relationship pans out, as Dom has clearly shown his ability.

    I suppose we all, quite rightly, feel uncomfortable about the Isaac/Dom relationship, but the dragging out of the storyline does actually reflect real life. On average a partner is a victim of 35 assaults by their partner before the victim actually seeks help as the abuser has such control.

    Ellie's heart, ridiculous storyline, but on the plus side, Jason is back I think he is great.

    Unfortunately abuse often persists and the abusers wields consider power. It will be more realistic to let it run a while. The abuse is both domestic and professional. Poor Dom.

    Agree about the heart: a coincidence too far.
