Young ex-soldier David Foster (Matthew Needham) is admitted to St Matthew’s Hospital with a blood clot in his brain after a fall under the influence. Against his initial judgement and to everyone’s surprise, Monroe (James Nesbitt) decides not to operate on the young man and instead waits and sees if the clot dissolves naturally.
Dr Bremner’s patient this week is an elderly lady, Judith Wardin (Bridget Turner), whose daughter is very attached to her and wants her to be around for her grand-daughter’s upcoming wedding. Despite some misgivings about the uncertain outcome of the surgery, Dr Bremner (Sarah Parish) and her team operate on Judith.
Mullery (Andrew Gower) tries to impress Dr Bremner and outshine fellow trainee surgeon Sarah Whitney (Christina Chong). His clumsy attempts, however, are easily seen through by Dr Bremner, who voices her disappointment in him. Dr Monroe enjoys taunting Daniel Springer (Luke Allen-Gale), who has temporarily “misplaced” one of his patients.
