She has since got married and is expecting a child. However, Holly has now left her husband and has returned to the hospital as a paediatrics registrar. She also tried to get back into a relationship with Mac by lying about her abortion, claiming that she never had it. She also tells Mac that they now have a son, Mackenzie, who is four years old and has the same kind of hair as Mac. This was later discovered to be false, as Mackenzie was not Mac's son, and Holly had dyed Mackenzie's naturally dark hair blond. Mac is noted for his kindness - he is always willing to help anyone out of a tight spot.
If there is a fight, he will always be the one to break it up. If someone is upset, he will try to cheer them up.

If someone is being victimised, he will stand up for them. He often has to stand up for junior doctor Martin Dear , who is often bullied by his half-brother Guy Secretan , one incident even resulting in Mac chasing Guy throughout the hospital and hitting his head against a locker in order for him to apologize. He is also very professional, and does not like his team - Guy and the new surgical registrar Caroline Todd - being disturbed.
He has shoulder-length, strawberry blonde hair that one member of staff, Sue White , calls the "Lion's mane". Guy often mocks it, saying that the reason he has it long is to "hide his large ears. Others include Caroline and Emmy, a physiotherapist working in the hospital.
Mac is also noted for his dry sense of humour, a contrast against Guy's outrageous, crude and immature persona. He has a quick wit and is known for his comebacks, namely towards Guy, Caroline and Alan, who clearly does not approve of his sarcasm. Fluent in French, Mac enjoys intimidating Guy by explaining the history of specific terms including cassoulette and sabot.
In series one, Mac is offered a position as a consultant in Sheffield and was intending to move up there with Emmy; however Caroline manages to win him over. Later that same night however, Mac tries to stop an intoxicated Guy who joyrides an ambulance and eventually crashes it over a cliff, putting Mac into a coma that lasts over two months. When he finally awakens he has completely forgotten the 24 hours before the incident and has no memory of the feelings he had for Caroline. During the coma, Sue White lies to the hospital in Sheffield and tells them that Mac has died, taking away Mac's precious job opportunity.
She also "experiments" and takes some of Mac's semen during his coma and impregnates herself with it through injection, later claiming to be pregnant with Mac's child she announces this by sawing her way through a table in an Indian restaurant where some of the hospital staff are having dinner. However, the baby turns out to be a lion, probably due to the Lion's mane. In his spare time, Mac likes to ride his Ducati SuperSport DS motorbike which he apparently keeps in a hospital lift after placing an "Out of Order" sign on the Call button , but he does have the odd habit of riding it around naked.
He also collects Evel Knievel memorabilia. He is a big fan of The Kinks.

Another habit he has is making bets with Guy, and constantly proving that he is better than him. He is also known to like Goths , saying what he likes about them is the fact that "they try to pretend to be ugly on purpose.
Mac has also been best man at seven weddings. His parking space is A3, right next to the hospital, but he does not use it. This angers Alan who only has a reserve parking space away from the hospital, despite his rank as consultant, but nothing he says or does can change this. Mac is apparently entitled to the parking space because he is a surgeon, even though he does not use it. He fills it with sand and has a beach barbecue there with Guy and two bikini-clad women, much to Alan's chagrin.
He was told at the end of the second series he was dying the name of the cause was later revealed to have an A and an E in it. He was given a month's leave, and when he returned he learned of Caroline and Guy's engagement.
How we made Green Wing
However, Guy then allowed Mac to marry Caroline before he died. At the wedding, everyone coughed when Mac's real name was mentioned during the vows, much to Martin's disappointment. His favourite character was called Red, because both characters had similar coloured hair. When Mac first meets Caroline, they fail to get on. Mac thinks her a neurotic and Caroline thinks of him as rude. However, the more they work together, the more they start to like each other.
When Caroline is sick at her housewarming party, Mac helps her, and eventually kisses her, after she has been sick. After her afternoon out with Guy, Caroline decides that it is Mac that she truly loves. However, by the time she asks him out, Mac is already going out with Emmy the physiotherapist, and he is planning to move to Sheffield. Their relationship takes a bad turn however after the cliff-hanging ambulance accident.
Caroline constantly visits Mac while he is in a coma, talking, reading and playing music to him. When Mac wakes up, not only does he headbutt Caroline, but he has amnesia and has totally forgotten their relationship. Caroline tries to make him remember, but is not helped by Guy, who tries to interfere. But when Boyce tells Mac what happened before, they make up. The relationship between Mac and Caroline is strained when Holly arrives at the hospital. Although Holly claims that she is no longer interested in Mac she secretly is - the reason she took the job at the hospital was to win Mac back , she lies to Mac about having a son.
The revelation leads to Caroline thinking it would be best for him and Holly to raise Mackenzie on their own, and she starts going out with Jake. Soon, Mac tries to propose marriage to Caroline, by initially asking her if she could swap shifts, then asking if she would move in with him. Caroline later gets a message, seemingly from him, by model train that he wants to meet her at the train station. However, Mac learns that he is going to die and rides off on his motorbike. However, Guy then offers Caroline the chance to marry Mac before he dies.
Caroline accepts and the two wed. They often argue about who is the most important person during the operation.
Guy often claims his job of keeping the patient asleep is the most important, whereas Mac takes the view that the actual operation, and his work is more central to the operation. They often play silly games together to prove who is the greatest, such as running through a swimming pool, Guyball and, "The Spoon of Destiny", in which they put a spoon in their mouth and try to fill a bowl of sugar as quickly as they can.
Guy even plays Battleships with him when Mac is in coma. Martin performs a mime in memory of the deceased and soon after Mac arrives at the church on his bike. Meanwhile Alan and Joanna are on the run in the camper van after having accidentally murdered Joanna's cousin. How they escaped the cliff hanger situation is unknown. Joanna is clearly once more bored by Alan's company but has no option this time but to put up with it.
The camper van couple soon become deadly hungry and resort to such tactics as stealing from shops to get food.
It isn't long before their hunger really does turn deadly - they accidentally kill a mechanic and then later Alan accidentally kills a shop assistant in a very botched robbery! Back at the hospital Mac discovers Caroline is now engaged to Guy, although it soon transpires she's not actually all that comfortable with the situation as Guy is being very arrogant and is un-romantically treating Caroline as his possession to do what he wants with. Elsewhere in East Hampton's corridors it soon dawns on Boyce how much he misses Alan when the replacement radiologist lecturer refuses to tolerate his euphemisms.
Martin is also feeling a little lonely and rejected as Alan and Joanna had pushed him out of the camper van once they'd escaped the cliff. Sue meanwhile is being her usual mad self.
Some plots and tropes used:
Mac reveals to a drunk Guy that he's dying and it isn't long before Caroline finds out. When she confronts Mac he admits that he didn't pursue the marriage route with her as he thought she'd be better off marrying someone who wasn't dying. Mac is apparently dying of something with an 'A' and an 'E' in it not acne - we never find out what, however it is assumed to be cancer.
In the HR office we discover Karen's fall from the window has helped her gain some confidence and fashion sense although she has lost a hand. It took them some time however the office staff finally twig that now Joanna has gone they're in charge! They begin recruitment for a new male temp and to ensure they pick the right person they include the rather unorthodox question 'can you drop of trousers? They should have hired a cleaner too - the office looks like stationary bomb has hit it!
Sue spots that Joanna's departure could benefit her too and is soon locked in an argument with Charles Robertson the Chief Executive of the hospital trust over why he has not promoted her to the now vacant position of Head of HR.
