On Zara, I liked the way she talked to the baby today, especially in the way she called him "little man". I think that will work well for her as he grows up, will probably be a good way of keeping him sweet but on the straight and narrow too as long as he isn't spoilt too much.

I thought the bits in todays episode with Zara and baby Joe and her panic were really good and realistic - and it was nice to see more of Marina being a warm supportive Health Visitor, which makes her a more complex person and her problems with her temper more interesting. For example, does she always stay warm and calm when she's in a professional context and only 'snap' when she's at home?

I do feel we've had more than enough of Jack and his Law Degree (thank goodness he's a 3rd year and it's nearly over!). It is really not anything to do with the Mill.

Kevin looked genuinely surprised when confronted by Julia - I'm not sure if that's because he was unaware that he's been failing to do referrals, or because he's not a very good actor?

Where getting through these threads quite quickly aren't we?

I managed to catch the names I think, of the babies that are "playing" the part of baby Joe, Emily and Lewis Whitehouse I think the names where.

With regards to Jack, he is much better when he has a proper storyline to get into, like the one with Harrison. He just seems to be drifting a bit at the moment. Doesn't bring out the best in him.

Looking at tomorrow's preview, it seems Kevin has a soft spot for Freya after all! I said last week I didn't think we'd seen the last of those two together. Shame really, I think her and Mandy are a good match!

I don't remember missing an episode, but where has Akono gone?

Thought Jack looked quite haggard today, maybe that's why he has lost his way!!
So pleased Julia gave Kevin a mouthful today, it was long overdue. It think he has a high opinion of himself and needs bringing down a peg or two.

I'm surprised Zara is being visited by a health visitor, rather than a midwife. It always used to be midwives that visited in the first couple of weeks. Have things changed, or is it just Doctors being Doctors again?

Maybe because it's 10 days since she gave birth and has been checked out at the hospital.

Yeah, wonder if it was intentionally a hint that in the future he may drop out of law?

My favourite of the Hollins family is Rob - he seems the diamond in the rough compared to the rest of his family!

Maybe the writers want to show the softer/nicer side to Marina. Does does need help in that area!!!

I agree with that his is rock solid in that family. I felt for him in the Immie storyline as he played it so well.

I agree. Marina's storylines when she's being professional are quite good (may just be because I'm a mother with a young son and am involved with health visitors). But still, it is extremely interesting that she has managed (so far) to be as calm as a cucumber when in professional circumstances. Her homelife is horrific by comparison, but I suppose that's often the case with most abusive types.

I keep thinking that at some point Jack is going to drop the Law thing and follow Rob's footsteps in law enforcement. Maybe after he finishes Uni and finds that life in law actually involves a bit more, uh, WORK than he's used to. A big ole roll of his eyes when he was whinging about how everything always came so easily to him...and that's why he has no passion (??). Aweee, poor thing.

Kevin's dismissal cannot come fast enough! C'mon Julia.

A premature baby would be checked by a midwife, though, I think.

I dont know I seem to recall the midwife being more interested in how my stitches were the health visitor was the one who did the baby stuff but I also think that time scales on Doctors are variable and while we think 2 weeks has gone by its actual a month in doctors time and other times we think a month has gone and its only been two doctor days , i think you just have to go with the flow and accept its got its own special doctors calendar

Lets hope that yesterdays episode with Kevin and his lack of patient care was the begining of the end for the character. Hurry up and get rid Julia because I just can't take to him.

I had twins at 34 weeks (6 weeks early) they were in special care for 3 weeks, then when we brought them home we were seen by HV not midwife.
My own midwife came to the hospital once to see us and see how we were doing. Then I never saw her again (until this pregnancy)
No midwife came to my house....

Perhaps things are different in different parts of the country

Has anyone ever seen a health visitor on doctors? Mine was great when I had my daughter, very kind and knowledgable. It would be good to see a health visitor on Doctors. It would make it more believeable somehow.

I was really scared for Hesten in the last scene, I honestly thought she was gonna throw the water over him, Why doesn't he just get shot of her

I would really like Freyer to be with Keven, yer he is growing on me a bit, I think he has a heart deep down

After today's episode my opinion of Kevin has gone down even more notches (as if that were possible). am beginning to feel sorry for Marina, but she needs real help, not Heston's good intentions and Elaine is useless. Odd story lines today, though, that's two or three wierd 'patient' episodes running...
