Spence's Choice - Part 1

Holby City, Series 15 Episode 17 of 52

When a child with unexplained injuries presents on AAU, Michael and Chrissie can't help but suspect the parents of abuse, whilst Gemma and Sacha are more sympathetic. It's Michael's case and he gets the final say - will he pull the family apart by calling social services, or give the parents the benefit of the doubt?

Ollie's sick of splitting his life between two homes and suggests he move in with Tara. Worried that his constant presence will get in the way of her research and studying, she refuses. He decides to show her that he can do things her way, which ends with them facing the wrath of Elliot. Has Ollie completely spoiled any chance he had of moving in with Tara, or will she have second thoughts?

Arthur's people skills are tested when he deals with a tricky patient. Working with Chantelle, he learns a few tricks and successfully deals with the patient. But when the time comes to acknowledge her help, he inadvertently insults her instead.
