Has anybody else noticed that Harry doesn't actually appear to have any male friends? :( :lol:

He was friends with Josh wasn't he? They went for a drink together, I suppose they are all friends really, dont you think?

I think they are all friends, he certainly has that relationship with Guppy.
Perhaps that relationship is more based on father-son, never the less there is also friendship involved.
But being the head of the ED, he also must take some distance between his employees. Otherwise it will always be difficult to supervise objectively.
I'm just rambling, I really don't know.

I'll offer my time and take him to the boozer if he's struggling for some company.

He does seem to get on well with Charlie but I suppose someone in Harry's high profile managerial position can't be too friendly with staff members, there has to be a dividing line.

Kerri's gonna hate me for saying this, but the last friend Harry had was Jim. No one else has even come close to the relationship they had because they were equals, Josh is closer to Harry than Charlie has ever been even tho he works more with Charlie. I've seen a few times Josh and Harry talking about personal things but with Charlie and Harry it's always about work, Charlie always seems to take the defensive postion too, he's quite often against Harry in situations and always thinks he's right.

Jim seemed to bring out a side of Harry we hadn't seen before nor since, we see bit of it with Guppy but the age (father/son) thing makes the differnce noticable, Harry will always be Guppy's mentor first the a father figure then a friend. There was one time Jim asked Harry to come bowling with them, and Jim took the mick out of him for some reason and Harry just wacked him a few times (playfully) with the folder, I never seen Harry act like that with any other male character. Ok he hit Guppy on the butt with I file once but it wasn't the same it was just to get his attention (funny tho, Guppy's face)

I recall Jim asking for Harry's opinion on whether he should ask Nicki to marry him, this possibly indicates a respectful friendship. What was the state of their friendship outwith Holby E.D?

For me, Nathan is the only person Harry DOESN'T get on with. With his other colleagues, there's a standard level of communication and understanding.

I think that was the point being made, he has professional colleages but no real 'buddies' Jim is the only person I can think of several times they had personal converstions that didn't revolve around work the one about Nikki a good example, discussing if Josh's living arrangements (harry said if he didn't have the kids he would have offered) is another. I'm also talking male friends because we all know how well he gets on with the ladies (he's such a flirt our Harry :wink: )

I mean you quite often see the lads out (Abs, Guppy, Sam) and you used to see Harry there too even after Beth died you just don't see that now the last lads night we saw with the 'older guys' was early s20 when Harry took Josh out for a drink, I like to see that relaxed side more often

Maybe he's just the type of guy to keep his personal and professional lives separate with regards to buddies. In my work, there is a saying along the lines of "I work with you, it doesn't mean I have to like or socialise with you."

He could very well be a ladies man and not a man's man. There possibly isn't a common social issue between Harry and the other male staff.

Any out of hours time shown with regards to Harry seems to be with the females like Lara, Ellen and Selena. It would be a nice touch right enough for him to have a male confidant at Holby, especially on his return. He might want an independent male angle on the whole Selena issue.
