It’s wonderful to see medic Oliver Valentine back on the wards of Holby City and he’s already proving he’s a force to be reckoned with as he diagnoses patients on AAU. 

Still battling a brain injury after being shot in the head, he hasn’t performed any operations — but that’s all set to change next week.

The drama begins for Ollie when he and Hanssen’s old friend Russ’s 16-year-old daughter Billie is brought into the hospital; she’s got the branch of a tree stuck in her neck. Ollie shows he can more than handle the complicated case and, when Billie’s condition deteriorates and she needs urgent surgery, Hanssen (Guy Henry) encourages Ollie to observe surgeon Ange Godard (Dawn Steele) in theatre.

Initially, everything looks like it’s going well, until new mum Ange has a “personal emergency” that she needs to attend to, and it falls to Ollie to finish the job.
