From the mirror
It's like watching Junior Doctors: Your Life in Their Hands tonight as a new F1 arrives on Darwin ward. Holby City Chinese doctor Tara Lo (Jing Lusi), who arrives just in time to get in the way as an RTA puts the hospital on majax status. For those of you not fluent in cool hospital jargon, that’s a pile-up on a dual carriageway resulting in a major accident.
How thrilled Oliver Valentine must be to have a newbie to look down on who’s even more incompetent than he is. And Tara doesn’t disappoint, as she nearly kills the same patient twice. Not bad going for your first day.

Does Holby City put Chinese doctors in a bad light, or is it yet another opportunity to promote the hypersexualised Chinese female stereotype?
