Sky Living - 9pm
Who's in it?
Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey are back on call as the unfeasibly attractive medics up to their necks in blood, guts and romantic melodrama that would make a Mills & Boon author cringe. In a good way.
In a nutshell
So, it's season ELEVEN of the medical soap (don't call it a drama – this is a soap with white coats). And, unlike many of the patients who find themselves caught in between the doctors' various rivalries and flirtations, Grey's Anatomy seems to be in rude health. Indeed, the latest season opener features a guest appearance from none other than Hollywood veteran Geena Davis, playing a strong-willed surgeon.
Of course, all eyes will be on the regulars as we catch up with Meredith mulling over her best mate Cristina's departure, and also finding time to mope about McDreamy's imminent move to Washington DC. Say it ain't so, Patrick Dempsey! It's not all silent suffering, though, as Meredith is also set to clash with new doctor Maggie – with whom she has more in common than she realises. Elsewhere, Bailey and Alex come into conflict over the seat Cristina left vacant on the board, and some chap is found close to death in the desert. Now there's a storyline you'd never get on Casualty.
What's the verdict?
Cheesier than a four cheeses pizza from the Cheesy Pizza Company, but Grey's Anatomy is also every bit as easy to devour as the aforementioned snack. Sit back and chow down.
