Goodbye Dr. Burke

Dr. Burke of Greys Anatomy

It’s official. The words out that the character Dr. Preston Burke, portrayed by Isaiah Washington , of Grey’s Anatomy fame will not be returning for Season 4 of the series. If you’re not familiar with the series Grey’s Anatomy – may I ask what stone have you been under all this time?

Well for the uninitiated, Grey’s Anatomy, is the award winning television series that portray a drama centered on the personal and professional lives of five surgical interns and their supervisors. And they have such a nice tagline that goes by ” Operations. Relations. Complications.” Both simple and in the same time complex, yet realistic.

It is sad news indeed when you hear that one of your favorite characters will not be making an appearance in the series you love. For me, the character of Dr. Burke has always represented what a tried and true medical doctor would seem in the real world. His ‘its-not-all-fun-and-games’ attitude bring a refreshing presence in the series where, even though its fun, tends to somewhat blow out of proportion the amount of sexual and relationship tension.

Hey I get it that medical doctors and housemen are human beings too, but what is it with everyone either sleeping with someone else or looking to get into the pants of some other character or rather. Understandably though is that all this happens in an equally engaging storyline – and that’s what keep me hooked to the series.

Now that we are going to lose the great Dr. Preston Burke, I can’t help but wonder who will be the one to step in and so to say, fill in his shoes.

So I wish Isaiah a fond farewell, and good sailing where ever the winds take him. Thanks you for a splendidly good time while it lasted.
