Ethan struggles to bury his feelings for Alicia, as she and Cal become increasingly intimate. In an effort to get over his unrequited crush, Ethan invites another girl to the Christmas party, but the gesture doesn't stop him fixating on Alicia once he arrives on the scene. Meanwhile, Charlie and Duffy take advantage of the festivities to announce their relationship, but things turn sour when Ryan, Duffy's husband, turns up.
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.
