Jac Naylor battles to save the hospital and herself this week in Holby City (Tuesday 11 January 2022 at 8.20pm on BBC1 - See our TV Guide for listings).

Jac’s brain tumour is causing her to have fits but the formidable surgeon is determined to deliver her presentation to the Clinical Strategy Directorate and get Holby back on track. 

CSD director Regina Marriott, however, delivers some bad news - it’s a foregone conclusion that Holby will be merged with St James.  

Henrik Hanssen (Guy Henry) manages to get a stay of execution at the 11th hour and the hospital is given three months to hit its targets. 

Jac (Rosie Marcel) vows to be at the forefront of turning Holby around, but will an emergency operation to remove her tumour prove to be the miracle cure she’s hoping for?

Meanwhile, grieving Dom Copeland (David Ames) is back at work but clearly not coping following mum Carole’s death. Coloured by his own experiences Dom tells transplant patient Alan - a recovering alcoholic - that he doesn’t deserve his new liver!

Dom later reveals he’s struggling to let go of his late mother, evidenced by the fact he’s brought her ashes into work with him. As Sacha Levy (Bob Barrett) comes up with a solution to his problem, Dom admits his anger at Alan is actually resentment towards his late, abusive stepfather.

Can Sacha help Dom let go of his pain?
