That’s our joke name for the two BBC programmes Casualty and Holby City.

Today I had a mad idea. (I get a lot of those.) I got the Bear to ring the home phone on his mobile and we spoke in different rooms. We had some limited chit-chat as if we were rehearsing the kind of stilted conversation in Chapter 1 of any language course in the world. Next I took control of the conversation – Ch 2!! – and asked: “What’s the weather like today?” The answer, as expected, was: “It’s raining.”

“What are we going to watch tonight?”


Yes!!! I could hear that “b“!
