What's on TV - - Tv Week -

Zsa Zsa Harper-Jenk­in­son turns up at Holby this week, de­ter­mined to stop doc­tor Dy­lan Keogh from drink­ing him­self to death!

Nurse David Hide has been try­ing to find Dy­lan since Dy­lan’s ex, Ciara Cas­sidy, lost their un­born baby. Run­ning out of op­tions, he phones the one per­son Dy­lan will lis­ten to – his for­mer men­tor, Zsa Zsa…

‘When Zsa Zsa gets David’s call she can tell some­thing is wrong,’ ex­plains Sharon Gless, who first played Zsa Zsa last year. ‘The first time you see her, she’s flown in to Holby and is pound­ing on Con­nie’s door!’

Dra­matic en­trance

Zsa Zsa’s feet hardly touch the ground be­fore she’s em­broiled in a jaw-drop­ping show­down with Con­nie (Amanda Meal­ing) and re­cruits timid David (Ja­son Durr) to help her lo­cate Dy­lan.

‘Zsa Zsa doesn’t wait for an an­swer, she goes in to Con­nie’s of­fice and they have their first un­pleas­ant meet­ing,’ says Cag­ney & Lacey star Sharon.

Mean­while, Dy­lan’s knock­ing drinks back with his al­co­holic dad, Brian (Matthew Marsh), in a karaoke bar. Soon Dy­lan and his dad be­come in­volved in a drunken brawl that leaves Brian fight­ing for his life… Can Zsa Zsa use her brain surgery skills to save him?

‘The surgery is a lit­tle out of con­trol be­cause it isn’t in a theatre but Zsa Zsa’s very in­ven­tive,’ says Sharon. ‘The fake blood didn’t bother me but the med­i­cal di­a­logue was so lengthy that I had to plas­ter it on a wall! Zsa Zsa is both funny and se­ri­ous. I hope Ca­su­alty in­vite me back!’
