The Hands that Rock the Cradle, Part 2

Episode 2 of 55

When Archie dies unexpectedly, Vanessa suspects foul play, dismissing Connie, Ric and Faye from Holby to allow for a full police inquiry.

Lauren sees Faye change Archie's saline bag. When Archie dies nobody can find a reason, so Joseph worries Faye will come under suspicion. He persuades Connie and Ric to say they gave permission for the bag change. But Vanessa doesn't believe any of them so Faye is suspended and Connie and Ric are sent on leave while an investigation takes place.

Michael thinks robotics must be easy, but the equipment seizes up when he has a go. After winding Michael up, Connie gets her own back when she carries out a faultless robotics procedure in front of the press.

Mark helps Maria get justice for Maddy by persuading Chantelle to confess to Maddy's murder.
