Hospitals fascinate me.

Are you being serious?


When I visit hospitals,

I get excited.

I feel like I can make

a contribution.

Perhaps I can show you around.

I would adore that.

I don't know

how to contact you.

Well, I'm like most people.

I've got a mobile.

Actually, I'm not like most people.

I have 4.

One number would do.

And 11.00 an audience with His Grace,

The Archbishop of Canterbury.

- 13.00...

- Paul!

Lunch with Clyde James.

15.00 briefing here at KP

with doctors from Broadmol.

On patient therapy.

Thank you, Paul.

And one last thing, ma'am.

There's been a rumor,

you've done an interview with BBC.

Yes, don't worry about that,


Everything will be alright.

This is the Reginald Wilson Ward,

retains private rooms.

The NHS is on this side.

Basically we're about 50/50.

Is your father a doctor?

No, he runs the family business.

He plants bottles.

But I do have an uncle

who's a heart surgeon.

So you followed him.

I follow no one.

But yes, I admit.

My uncle did help

to set me on my path.

Family can be useful.

And bloody irritating.

Perhaps I've been luckier with

my family than you have.

I don't know.

I've got two families.

How lucky is that?

This is pretty much

state of the art.

How long a heart operation

go on?

Sometimes 8 to 9 hours.

God, how do you keep going?

You reach a place inside youself

where time has no meaning.

You don't perform the operation...

The operation performs you.

I'd love to feel that.

And when it's over...

Reality is a bit flat.

And you're very tired.

I bet.

This is the on-call accommodation.

You just crash here?

What do you eat?

There's a canteen on the

ground floor, but it's not open late.

You can always pop around the

corner for supper with me.

I'm serious.
