Holby City Controversy

I don't watch Holby City, but it seems that a current story about organ donation has generated some bad publicity, after breaching several guidelines, including a donation proceeding after the withdrawal of consent. According to this BBC article, "This is an ongoing story and in the weeks to come viewers will see the main character Mo face up to the fallout of her actions".

Given that relatives of donors often report some comfort (from knowing good came out of their personal tragedy), while those who refuse consent often report regret, I hope viewers see some of this in the later storyline.
