In the aftermath of Reyhan's death, Fletch has cause to believe he died in suspicious circumstances. Will a post-mortem confirm his worst fears?

There were shocks aplenty as Henrik Hanssen's evil abuser, Sahira’s father Reyhan Shah, died at the end of last Tuesday's Holby. This week, as medics Kian and Chloe assess the deceased man’s condition, he doesn’t appear to have died of natural causes, and the pair are forced to raise the alarm with Fletch.

Tensions had certainly been running high. Reyhan had been goading Hanssen about how no one would believe his allegations in court. Then Sahira, who hadn’t believed Hanssen’s claims, then discovered her father HAD been abused her own son, Abs! Both had motive… but could either of them be capable of murder?
