Ambiguously Bi: When Dr. Oxford begins to flirt with her, Pippa doesn't seem to notice, even when asked if she fancies a hot tub party. She double-takes at first when she is told she won't be needing a costume, but later on she is seen leaving the hospital with her to said hot tub.
Broken Tears:When she is informed on the phone that her research is definitely not going to be funded, she starts to choke up.
She Cleans Up Nicely: After being called out in the middle of the night, when she is still wearing her dress and makeup from a fancy date. This is repeated after after she has separated from her husband.
Surrounded by Idiots: Her interns don't seem the brightest bunch, and on one occasion she has to take one outside to explain that he is highly unlikely to pass his exams.
The Woobie: She may seem cold and somewhat callous, but everything seems to go wrong for her at some point, whilst it becomes increasingly obvious that her marriage is rapidly dissolving.
Played by: Ricky Grover
Ambiguous Disorder: He has difficulty with people and has to resort to numerous coping strategies when he is stressed.
Ambiguously Gay: He doesn't seem sure of his sexuality, despite having a sexual relationship with Den he takes extreme offence at the use of a homosexual slur (which prompts even the hospital official to ask whether this is because he is gay or just offended by the term.) Den later takes him to a gay bar, after they agree to stay Just Friends.
Fat Bastard: Probably the most unpleasant character in the show.
Gender-Blender Name: His name has become more associated with females by the 21st century. Plus, despite his gender, he's still the matron of the ward, due to the nature of the British nursing system.
