Last night (August 8) viewers saw the departure of Consultant General Surgeon & Trauma Surgeon, Berenice ‘Bernie’ Wolfe played by Jemma Redgrave.
Jemma was originally suppose to be appearing in Holby City for six months, from early 2016, Jemma has stayed on for an extra year.
Bernie first appeared as a patient on Darwin, before settling professionally on Keller, she later became the co-clinical lead alongside Serena (Catherine Russell) on AAU.
Viewers saw last night that the Trauma Unit on AAU was closed down by new medical director Nina Karnik, Bernie left the wards after a patient forces her to reconsider what she really wants out of life. She left Holby to visit Serena in France before rejoining the army.
It has not yet been confirmed whether or not Jemma will be reprising her role as Bernie.
The spoiler is under the cut…
Bernie tasks Donna with keeping an eye on Morven during her first day back at work. Morven throws herself into the diagnosis and treatment of her patient, but can she accept the life-and-death nature of her job after all she has been through?
