Exciting times for the young surgeons at St Matthew’s: their training is over and it is time for their assessment. All of them are eager to please their supervisors and secure their place at the hospital. Mullery (Andrew Gower) is also a “cute embarrassment” to girlfriend and fellow surgeon Sally Fortune (Manjinder Virk) who is still in recovery after her brain and heart surgery.
Anaesthetist Lawrence Shepherd (Tom Riley) surprises his friend Monroe (James Nesbitt) with the announcement that it is time for him to move on and find work elsewhere. During nightshift, Monroe is called to an emergency: a thirteen year old girl is admitted with brain damage after a car accident and it brings back some painful memories to Monroe.
Shepherd and Dr Bremner (Sarah Parish) have a long and honest conversation that holds some surprising revelations while Monroe receives a visit from his wife where they open up about their shared grief over their daughter’s death. Despite everything, life goes on at St Matthew’s Hospital after all.
