The formidable surgeon causes a stir as she arrives on Darwin this week. But what's the real reason for her return?

Brace yourselves… formidable Holby surgeon Jac Naylor is back this week! And no one is more surprised to see her than director of nursing Adrian ‘Fletch’ Fletcher.

Jac took extended leave from Holby as she battled with severe pain following the life-saving surgery she underwent after being shot last year. And the reason why Jac’s really back at Holby is soon revealed… she wants Professor Gaskell to operate on her.

Jac thinks she’s the perfect candidate to be the next patient in Gaskell’s pioneering stem cell trial. Fletch (Alex Walkinshaw) advises against it – but this woman’s not for turning…

After much convincing from Jac, Gaskell (Paul McGann) reluctantly agrees to perform Jac’s surgery. Later, Jac’s vulnerable side emerges as she confides in Fletch about her future. Does it lie in Gaskell’s hands?

Meanwhile, loved-up Lofty is anxious not to crush Dominic’s weekend plans, so when Lofty catches Sheilagh behaving recklessly, he risks fracturing both relationships.

Also, on a high with patient success in Morocco, Gaskell’s sceptical reaction to a new trial candidate leads to a disagreement with Roxanna.
