Sam's rash decision to man the ED himself during the staff strike comes back to haunt him when Roy Ellison's wife and son turn up at the hospital, and discover what has happened to him. The Ellisons quickly prove that unhappy behaviour runs in the family, and when their actions on the ward become unacceptable, events begin to spiral out of control. Meanwhile, Iain and Jez find Lily unconscious in the car park, after Gem accidentally hit her while driving erratically. Racked with guilt, Gem decides to hand herself in, but Lily's prospects remain grim
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.
