Holby City review with spoilers: Sinister Cameron’s most shocking actions yet?

(Picture: BBC/Metro.co.uk)Any ideas that Xavier’s death might have shocked Cameron (Nic Jackman) into changing his ways were properly dashed in tonight’s Holby City, as he carried out one of his worst crimes yet.
It was the day of his performance review, and his early confidence was dashed when he caught sight of the report Ange (Dawn Steele) had written about him, and then had it confirmed by Ange herself.
He didn’t have the right temperament to be a surgeon, she said. Plus he was economical with the truth. This made him sulk, but Ange agreed to give him some time to try to turn things around. ‘Time for action, not sulking,’ she advised.
Cameron’s patient, Harry (Ed Coleman) was an unpleasant character – grumpy and misogynistic. Even so, he didn’t deserve what Cameron did next.
As Harry complained that ‘girls’ got an easy ride while men did all the work, Cameron was having a look at the stitches that had been placed in Harry’s abdomen after Ange had operated on him.
And, taking a sharp pair of scissors, he made a few little snips and quietly replaced the dressing. By the time Louis (Tyler Luke Cunningham) and Donna (Jaye Jacobs) discovered the damage, Harry was bleeding all over the place and screaming his head off.

Useless Tracey is in debt again (Picture: BBC)Once again, Cameron got away with it. He took control of things with one of those ‘no theatre available so we’ll have to do it here’ situations. Ange was quite impressed, but she wants to see if this was just a one off before she puts in a glowing performance review. ‘More of the same?’ said Cameron. ‘I can do that.’ The worrying thing is – he most probably can.
Nicky (Belinda Owusu) also had a performance review, and by Jac (Rosie Marcel)’s standards the review she gave was glowing: ‘Competent, diligent, talented.’ What would Cameron give for praise like that?
Nicky almost managed to derail herself though, when Jac found out that Nicky had been telling patient Auntie Brenda (Lynn Hunter) that the life saving surgery Jac proposed was too risky. This all got smoothed over and Nicky managed to persuade Auntie Brenda to have the operation after all. Jac even let her assist, and the operation was a success.
Sadly, Brenda later died – but Nicky was at Albie’s with Louis and Jac decided not to tell her until the next day. Nicky has also signed up for more drugs trials, as not only has she promised to help her mother, Useless Tracey (Cathy Murphy), with her debts, but Donna has also asked for the money that Zav loaned Nicky too.

Devastating news for Essie (Picture: BBC)It was an even worse day for Essie (Kaye Wragg), as she had an appointment with her consultant in which she was told that her chemo isn’t working and the tumour has grown. Baby Isla was ill with suspected chickenpox, plus Evie Fletcher (Phoebe French) was at the hospital supporting her dad as he recovers from his operation, so Essie had a lot of time to reflect on the heartbreaking idea that Isla could soon lose her, like Evie lost her own mum.
She did tell Sacha (Bob Barrett) what the consultant had said, but he had to look after Isla as they didn’t want Essie to catch her chickenpox, so Essie was very much on her own for most of the episode, dealing with her fears by herself.
Things are looking better for Fletch (Alex Walkinshaw), though there was a dicey moment early on when he had to be rushed back to surgery. With the efforts of Sacha and Dominic (David Ames) he was soon back in his bed and talking to Evie again.
And in an episode where there was so much going on, Max McGerry (Jo Martin) had to decide whether to resign or not.
‘Your days at the top are numbered,’ growled Selfie (John Michie), who was cross because the value of his Kestrel shares had tumbled as fast as Cameron’s morals after the world was alerted to their shoddy practices.

Max isn’t a quitter, though, and told an assembled group of staff that she wasn’t going to take the easy route and fall on her sword. So she’s going to try to earn their respect. She could start by keeping an eye on certain rogue elements in AAU…
