(introduces himself to Malick in bar) Dominic, new F1. Had my induction on Kellar this morning.
Parents, Carol and Barry.
Ambitious Dominic is a troubled young doctor, who likes to glamorize his life to try and fit in. He’s intelligent and quick-witted but can also be manipulative and a schemer to get what he wants. Being quite sensitive, sometimes he believes himself to be the victim so as to justify his actions as self-defence.
Dominic was born to parents, Carol and Barry, who christened him ‘Darren’. Embarrased by his mother and his father, who we later learn is homophobic, he comes to Holby claiming his mother is dead.
Dom’s first run is with Malick. Despite Malick being in a relationship, he cheats on Nathan with Dom who later seeks out revenge which leads to Malick facing a Coroner’s inquest. When he returns to Holby the following series, it’s under a cloud as he is forced to re-take his first year. Digby is initially cautious of him, as he knew what happened with Malick and the pair don’t get on, however Zosia is intrigued by Dom’s psyche and invites him to live with them. Despite being enemies, the pair go on to forge a close friendship and Digby was the best friend that he had been searching for so it hit Dominic hard when Digby got terminal cancer and died.
Dom’s love life has been far from successful, after a fling with Malick and a brief liaison with Kyle that was ruined by Dom’s deceit, he went on to date patient Lee. But their relationship faltered after Lee stole from him and lied about being married. After being confronted, Lee sets out to attack Dom but in self defence, Dom stabs him with a knife which he is later cleared of. To ruin Dom’s confidence futher, his next relationship is with doctor Isaac Mayfield. Their relationship is toxic and ends in domestic abuse. After one too many beatings, Isaac leaves Holby.
With the arrival of Lofty in Spring 2017, there are hints of a potential romance. Could he be the one to give Dom the romantic happiness that he so craves?
