Doctor Doctor–Season 1, Episode 4 (I Need Another Drink)

This episode for me was a definite improvement from last week, I’m hoping this rollercoaster ride of great and mediocre episodes stops at some point and some consistency comes along. In my review of last week’s episode, I said I could sum up the episodes in one word, this episode I can sum up in three–melodramatic and mundane.

I thought it was an interesting choice to have Hugh in even more trouble, albeit a different kind. The question of how the patient managed to record him in a sterile OR for nine hours was never answered, but I also liked the choice to make Hugh the sympathetic one out of the two in this situation. However there is no such thing as a small detail with writing, so an unlikeable character is not unlikeable for no reason. The revelation of the patient living in a dodgy flat and having to look after his mother was needed and the final outcome of Hugh giving the patient his apartment was the best one for this situation. While it was obvious that Hugh wouldn’t be done for, it was an outcome that I didn’t see coming.
