Ethan's efforts to avoid Alicia prove futile when the pair are dispatched to rescue a professor and her son after they fell into a cave while out jogging. As the pair descend into the fissure by winch, debris begins to fall, and sparks fly as Ethan tries to reassure a claustrophobia Alicia. Meanwhile, Louise is disheartened when the trust denies her funds for a new relatives' room, so Noel helps her to seek donations from the public, and one of Holby's cleaners takes a tumble while trying to leave the hospital with a set of suspiciously full bags.
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.
