Ruth has an interview to determine whether she will be fully reinstated as a doctor, but despite appearing confident, she buckles under the pressure when a stroke victim is brought into the ED. A hung-over Linda clashes with Tess over management styles, and a run-in with a grieving patient prompts her to reassess her attitude.

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.
