Finally, Sah (Arin Smethurst) is confronted by an old bully, and David’s (Jason Durr) son Olly’s (Harry Collett) struggles with social isolation and depression lead to devastating consequences. So there's a lot going on...

Speaking about all the upcoming stories, Loretta Preece, Series Producer says: "It’s going to be a roller coaster ride in Holby hospital this spring.  There are difficult choices for Robyn and Teddy, harsh consequences for Stevie and Faith, and a hard-hitting, action-packed, and very poignant story for Iain.
