Due to having worked excessive hours, Lily falls asleep on her moped while driving home. In a blur, she crashes into a schoolgirl. When she is later interrogated by the schoolgirl's father she admits she was overtired, so the father angrily blames Connie and Lily. However, Lily is in the clear, as the schoolgirl later admits that she deliberately stepped out in front of Lily's moped to stop her father from going on a business trip abroad. Rita decides that enough is enough and tells the nurses to work to rule by doing only what is in their job descriptions instead of letting senior staff make them do porter's work and suchlike. A mother and baby are admitted, and when amphetamines are found in their blood the staff become concerned, but it is later found that a man was making methamphetamine in the flat below and letting drug vapour rise upstairs. He is later admitted to the hospital after his meth lab explodes.
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.
