Holby City viewers have criticised the BBC for not showing a trigger warning ahead of a distressing scene last night (May 4). On Tuesday’s instalment of the medical drama, Henrik Hanssen was seen self-harming following abuser Reyhan’s death.
Reyhan suddenly passed just hours after being admitted to hospital, raising suspicions over how he died. At the end of the episode, viewers watched on as Henrik began to self-harm.
The BBC did issue a brief message on Twitter over the scene but some believed that wasn’t enough.
Alongside a link to a support website, the show tweeted: “If you need help and support with issues around abuse and self-harm, please visit our website.”
