Jordan introduces a new rule which says that all patients should be in and out of the ED within two hours as he tries to turn the department around. The team aren't happy with the new rule though. Pupil Taz is rushed into the ED after falling from a school building and Zoe thinks he has taken LSD. After more pupils are reported with the same symptoms, head teacher Mrs Haines realises she has a serious problem on her hands. When Simone is brought back into the ED after falling down a flight of stairs, Kirsty believes that she could have deeper psychological issues. Her mother isn't happy with the diagnosis though and complains to Jordan about it.
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.
