Drama Holby City 8.00pm BBC1
Post-Christmas and Holby City Hospital is brimming over with joy and goodwill to all men. Yeah, right. In fact, most of the staff have got the hump: Maria's so busy moping over Sam she manages to lose a patient with dementia and "turbo slippers"; Mark is spitting blood about the number of staff who are absent; and Ric is not only struggling to treat a man who's picked up something in the Balkans (sounds painful), but also has to decide what to do when the mother of his grandson asks for his help.
Only Linden has reason to be happy because his coma patient miraculously wakes up. Even so, by the time the credits roll to the sound of Elton John's Sacrifice, you may feel decidedly joyless yourself. Jane Rackham
