A wedding ends in disaster when the floor collapses, and as Robyn and Ethan assist the paramedics, it seems the only way of freeing the trapped bride is to amputate her leg. Back at the hospital, Max struggles to win over a teenage girl who has been brought in with severe abdominal pains, while Lofty grows suspicious when a woman treated for minor injuries later returns with bad facial wounds. Is she a victim of domestic abuse?
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.
