Episode 1 of 52

Medical drama series. Connie clashes with Hanssen, the new joint Director of Surgery. Determined not to share the position, she attempts to establish herself as top dog.

Connie feels on top of her game, but when the stranger in her office turns out to be the new joint Director of Surgery, Hanssen, Connie is defiant - she doesn't job share. Setting out to make sure Hanssen knows who is top dog, she outlines her visionary presentation to the Board. But when Hanssen publically dismisses her plans, Connie is humiliated. When Connie watches from the wings as Hanssen gathers the hospital together, telling them that there will be tough times to come, she realises a new King of Holby has been born.

Joseph can't help but feel compassion for the grieving, pregnant Faye, and dismisses Jac's cynical view of her. But Joseph can't ignore Faye's capacity for manipulation, and is shocked when she tells him Linden is the father of her child. Reeling from this lie, Joseph knows he can not trust Faye, and decides to treat her with kid gloves.

Social pariah Michael finds it hard to keep his spirits up when the Spence charm doesn't work on Hanssen. Vowing not to be beaten, Michael sets his sights on selling himself as the saviour of the hospital via Holby Care. But Hanssen has a different plan for him.
