Mike is brought into the casualty department after being beaten up by a local gang leader and his father is worried that his Olympic dreams could be over. Jeff is back in action following his reinstatement. Ruth decides to organise a morale-boosting trip to the races, but is disappointed when only one person puts their name down to go.
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.
