Two frantic parents have lost their children and fears that they have left the hospital while visiting their sick great-grandfather. They have been captured on CCTV outside the hospital, but haven't been seen since. A stricken rape victim is brought in, tied with copper wire. Dad knocks on the flats around their home, and comes across a convicted pedophile, who looks shifty. Meanwhile, police have found a bloodied hood, belonging to the girl.
Casualty is the world's longest running and most successful medical drama series on television. It depicts the private and working lives of the patients, doctors, nurses and all others attending a small but frantically busy accident and emergency department of the large Holby General hospital. By mixing episodic plots with longer, character-based stories it ensures that we get to know the characters as people with lives, not just doctors or nurses. With consistently superb storylines and great acting, Casualty is compulsive viewing. The show began in 1986 and since then only one character remains; the one and only Charlie Fairhead played by Derek Thompson.
