"Max" redirects here. For the consultant, see Max Gallagher.

Max Lindsay Gerald Walker[1] is a porter who currently works in the emergency department of Holby City Hospital. He started working at the ED in November 2013 after Robyn made him apply for the job.[2] He married senior consultant in emergency medicine Zoe Hanna in August 2015.[3] Although they initially separated, the pair got back together in January 2018, with Zoe returning to the US and Max accompyining her.[4]

Max is the department’s charming and cheeky porter - always on-hand with a witty comment or a bad joke. Being a porter fulfils a lot of his needs; a good social life and engagement with lots of different people. Max may appear lazy, but he’s actually got a sharp intelligence that matches that of Dylan’s at times – he just chooses when to use it. Beneath all the charm, however, he’s actually a sensitive soul, and is easily hurt.

Since uni Max has had many jobs, but he doesn’t stick at much for long – it distracts from his real passion, making music. He came to Holby to be closer to his band and got in touch with step-sister Robyn when he needed a place to crash. He’s also a sponge for information, but he just doesn’t know how to harness it all yet; he’s too busy dreaming of having an extraordinary life to engage with his real one.
