Series 18 Episode 12
Well it’s series 18 and we’re back on Baz
watch! Josh and Nikki receive a call that takes them to the airport. They attend
a man who has collapsed. His name is Kenneth and he is anxious about a plane he
is supposed to be meeting and a present that lies in his car. When Kenneth
arrives at the hospital he reveals his name is Kenneth Samuels. Meanwhile
Charlie is about to leave for the airport himself. On departure he notices
Kenneth in the corridor and they compare the presents they have brought for
Louis. Charlie introduces Kenneth as his father in law – Baz’s Dad. Charlie
expresses his concern over Kenneth’s ill appearance to Lara, who in turn tells
him that Kenneth has lung cancer. What’s more he has known for a few months and
has kept his illness from Charlie and Baz.
Charlie talks to Kenneth and tells him that he has to tell Baz about the cancer.
However Kenneth is reluctant and reveals to Charlie that he has a maximum of 6
months to live. During treatment to aid his breathing, Kenneth says he wanted to
be at the airport to help with Baz’s bags. But he is sure Dan will be there to
help her. Unsure of who Dan is Charlie questions Kenneth who tells him that Baz
has remarried. Charlie is gutted, to say the least and Kenneth tells him he
promised Baz he wouldn’t tell him.
Whilst in reception, Charlie is pounced on by Louis. As he turns around he sees
Baz. He greets her with a kiss and takes her to one side. She reveals she was
shocked when the airport announcement asked ‘Mrs Fairhead’ to go to Holby City
Hospital. Charlie soon comments on the fact that she is no longer Mrs Fairhead
and tells her he is shocked that she didn’t tell him she had remarried. Baz says
she thought about calling him to tell him but wanted to tell him face to face.
They end the conversation when Baz says she wants to see her father.
As Baz asks Charlie what is wrong with her father they are interrupted by Josh.
He is pleased to see her and tells her how well she looks. Always one with the
words Josh comments on how good looking Louis is and says he sees some of
Charlie in him! As Josh leaves them they retire to Charlie’s office where Baz
once again asks Charlie what is wrong with her Dad.
Baz comments on her weird day, which began when she heard her name on the PA.
She asks Charlie not to be bitter about her marriage for Louis’s sake. She tells
him Dan will be joining her soon and is sure that in other circumstances Charlie
and Dan would be friends. Charlie tells Baz her Dad has lung cancer and has
little than 6 months to live. As Baz breaks down in tears, Louis interrupts
them! Interruptions in Charlie’s office? Yep, Baz is back!
Baz and Kenneth plan to spend their last Christmas together and they refer to
past Christmas’s. In their conversation it is revealed that Baz’s mother has
also passed away. Kenneth asks Baz not to tell Louis about him dying as it may
As Kenneth is taken to a ward, Dan arrives and Louis runs towards him.
Screeching Dan as he approaches him, Charlie is concerned that Louis may have
called him Dad. But Baz assures him it was just ‘Dan’. Dan introduces himself
and says he recognises him from Baz’s trunk full of photographs. He also reveals
that he and Baz have had sleepless nights over what to tell Charlie – Charlie is
delighted to hear that of course!
As Baz prepares to leave Charlie tells her he would like to take Louis away for
a while. He tells her that he has planned a weekend away at an ecology seminar.
Who said Charlie wasn’t exciting eh? Well it turns out that Dan loves ecology
too (Baz sure does pick them!) and she asks if Dan can join him. She explains
that Dan is a big part of she and Louis’s life and says that she doesn’t want
Louis torn between them. Baz tells Charlie he’s a great Dad and says Louis is
lucky to have him. With that she pecks him on the cheek and walks out of the
department arm in arm with Dan. Charlie can only look on as he sees another man
with his family. Then the music plays, the credits roll and you know that Baz
and Charlie are back in town!
