Yet another missed opportunity.
This time a medical drama, Holby City. Shot in the head and we are seeing miraculous recovery.
I do understand that each and every recovery is different, but these really stretch the boundaries of believability.
And in my opinion it gives false expectations.
Really, a couple of coughs and the breathing tube is out and trying, and managing to communicate.
My husband and I were astounded and saddened, I tell you what if he’s back as a surgeon, which I’m sure he will be, Nik Griffins brain tumour never stopped him!, I wouldn’t want him anywhere near me!!!
I even wrote to POV after the dramatic programme aired saying I hoped they wouldn’t show unrealistic recoveries, I suppose the scripts had already been written, performances maybe even filmed.
Ah well, if only life were really like that.
It must be me but I even find 24 hours in A&E a little bit too edited, I like to see realistic life that prepares you for the real thing. Fiction is for escapism.
