For week’s now, Oliver Valentine has been trying to prove himself as a doctor while enduring flashbacks of the time he was shot in the head. In next week’s Holby City (BBC1, 7.50pm – see our TV Guide for listings), the full extent of Ollie’s post-traumatic stress disorder is dramatically exposed when he takes the lead in theatre and experiences an intense flashback mid-operation. 

Prior to the surgery, locum Maisie Scarborough returns to the hospital and tells Ollie’s mentor Russ Faber about how he once struck out at her in a violent rage. Although Russ is aware of Ollie’s trauma, Maisie believes he’s damaged… unpredictable… dangerous!

Meanwhile, Holby CEO Henrik Hanssen is supervising Ollie in theatre when the troubled doctor re-lives the moment he was shot in the head by Henrik’s son, Frederik. In the grip of the terrifying flashback, Ollie grabs Hanssen, slashing his boss’s arm with his scalpel in the process!
