Holby City viewers are unimpressed with Jac's absence

Newcomer Ange isn't enough to distract them

Over the past couple of weeks, Holby City has followed the story of teenager Holly who has been suffering medical complications... and difficulties within her family.

Last night's episode focused a lot on the arrival of Holly's father Michael and the conflict between him and his ex.

Ange and her daughter Chloe were both working on Holly's case, however the pair had very different opinions on the girl's condition.

Chloe thought Ange wasn't being honest with Holly's parents saying there is a small chance she could get better when Chloe doesn't believe she will.

Ange subsequently removed her daughter from Chloe's case feeling that she was too involved.

Meanwhile, Cameron pitched the idea of doing a risky procedure on a patient, but he told Chloe this idea was also Nicky's meaning if the procedure went wrong he wouldn't be the only one in trouble.

Many viewers were not impressed with the latest episode, branding it as "boring".

One tweeted: "#holbycity Been watching Holby City since the beginning. Dropped out a few years ago as it was becoming dire. Took it back up about 5 years ago but, really, I'm done again now. Boring is an understatement." [sic]

There have been a lot of new characters joining the show, while some favourites have departed... perhaps viewers just need to get to know them a little better to feel invested.

The good news is that old fave Zosia will be back next week... with a huge secret. This should definitely liven things up!

Holby City airs on Tuesday nights on BBC One at 8pm.
