Facing a disciplinary hearing for assault, Xavier 'Zav' Duval hunts for vital evidence to bring his nemesis Cameron down…

Following his suspension from the hospital, registrar Xavier ‘Zav’ Duval steps up his one-man vendetta to expose junior medic Cameron Dunn as a fraud, this week, leading to a dramatic showdown.

After assaulting Cameron (Nic Jackman) in theatre, Zav now faces a disciplinary hearing to determine his future at Holby. To strengthen his case, Zav secretly digs for dirt on his rival…

Convinced Cameron knows how Chloe’s rapist husband Evan Crowhurst really died, Zav hacks into Evan’s patient records, which make for interesting reading. Zav then asks a pal in security to download footage from ITU from the day Evan died – and he’s stunned by what it reveals…
