Well, I rushed from Casualty to see what was happening in the other department at Holby City. The chaos just continued really didn't it? Oh heck Iain nearly fluffed it and it wasn't looking great for Sacha. Connie and Jac decided to fight out their differences and then ended up operating on each other's patients, now there was a crossover to be seen.
Meanwhile in the scanner room Essie collapsed due to her diabetes while looking after Sacha's daughter and Ric made a valiant attempt to scramble through the roof to reach them. Thank goodness for the power coming back on....phew I was pretty exhausted watching this.
It kept me awake though, there was no time to nap here, too much going on. I kind of want Ric and Elle to get together now we know it was he whom she had a one night stand with at the old medical conference. Not sure whether that works for anyone else but maybe that story will continue. My heart went out to Noel when he went to confess that he may have been responsible for opening a dodgy email leading to all this kafuffle. He is so lovely and it ended up that he wasn't and that he was in the clear.
In fact everyone ended up in the clear and alive which was a good result. I've since been to visit Iain back in Casualty last night and although stable now he is still fighting his demons but with his sister for support now.
Hey what a very dramatic week and well done to all involved, it was a great couple of episodes. I was listening to the Executive Producer being interviewed on Radio 2 last week and he was asked whether there would be more crossovers like this. I felt from what he said it was a bit stressful to actually get these two drama's together and it involved a lot of hard work so we may not see them too often but I did enjoy it.
It is nice to get a taste for another programme in this way if you don't watch it already. I suppose if viewing figures do slide a bit it's a good way of pumping them up again but I'm not saying that's why it was done. I like these to dramas as they just continue on and on. There is never a break unless it's for the odd occasion when there is something else on, usually football, a World Cup or something similar. I like that we don't have to wait for another series in a years time so hats off to those who work so hard to put these programmes together.
I'm going to have a lie down now as this medical lark is hard work. I will be back though tomorrow for Music Monday so join me then but for now, take care everyone!!
Oh wow how exciting was Casualty last night? I was so gripped I felt an enormous bout of disappointment when the credits rolled. It was like an action packed blockbuster movie, I could have carried on watching it for at least another hour and that's not like me. I'm usually ready to nod off as I relax on my sofa but no, how could anyone have nodded off in the middle of this chaos.
Just as I thought one problem had settled there was another cropping up. Oh heck I don't envy any of the staff at Holby, they have got their work cut out here. If you are not a Holby City Hospital follower then you are probably wondering 'what the blinking heck are you on about Sue from the Brew?'
Well this week sees a crossover between Casualty and Holby City which always makes sense to me as these are two programmes involving the same hospital so I tend to get a bit excited when the two come together. Saying that though I am a big Casualty watcher but not so much a Holby viewer so I'm thinking will I know what's going on when I crossover to Holby City on Tuesday evening?
Now this is where me and Mum from the Brew make a good team as she is an avid Holby City watcher but not so much Casualty so we can swap notes here. It's great, it is genuinely like me and my mum work in different departments in the hospital, no don't tell me I'm taking it too seriously, let me just pretend.
So lots of things going off in this hospital, basically there is a virus of the techno kind which has got into the computer system and the whole hospital is experiencing problems with monitors, equipment, lights and lifts. Yes we now have Connie Beauchamp and crew stuck in a lift with poor Iain the paramedic who is in a serious life threatening situation.
We also have a car crash involving some of the Holby lot and Sacha's daughter is in a bad way, right mum? I think the people behind the scenes of both drama's will take into account that some people follow one programme and not the other but it is a good way of teasing you into watching the other option. I'm now left thinking whether I should be watching Holby City, mmm yes very clever.
Basically it's all kicking off and I'm just wondering when someone is going to suggest that some patients may need to go to another hospital but then that's probably not possible. Also was that car really going fast enough to do all that spinning over and over? Great action shot though, me feels that they maybe going for a BAFTA here.
The clash of the titans has started with these two (pictured), Connie and Jac Naylor going head to head. I think this is one of the best parts of the crossover. I am familiar with both of these ladies history and my goodness they are so good together. This is not just a crossover but a clash of two of the biggest personalities in Holby history. Let the bitch fest begin!
Well I will be crossing over to Holby City on Tuesday night and continuing the action there. Let me know.....do you like the crossover of these two drama's? Do you prefer one to the other? Go on be a bit devilish and enjoy the other side of the hospital, you may enjoy it.
I can't wait for the next week of tv.....you take care and have a great week too. I will be back tomorrow for Music Monday, join me then.
Pass the Remote
Every Sunday I will review the TV for the week.
