Heart To Heart

Heart To Heart - Episode 1

Liddy (Fern Deacon) wakes up after heart surgery, woozy from anaesthetic and hallucinating. Her doctor is there to deliver devastating news to her and her overanxious mum: her heart is in even worse condition than previously thought and, without a transplant, she could die any day. Upon hearing this, Liddy also hears another voice, shouting that she's going to die a ‘pathetic virgin’. Apparently this is her heart, Lump (David Tennant), and he’s not about to sit around, waiting for her to die without ever seeing a boob: he wants to get her laid. And nurse Kim (Siena Kelly) is the perfect candidate for the plan. But first, Liddy will have to find the courage to at least say hello to her...
