Duffy pushes Charlie into attending a 50-year school reunion, where he bumps into old crush Gloria, and former bully Allan, who just happens to be Gloria's husband - and does not seem to have changed his brutish ways. As Allan's playground antics get the better of Charlie, a scrap ensues, leaving the old ruffian with more than just a bruised ego. Meanwhile, a very public argument between David and his ex-wife Rosa prompts their troubled son to act out in a very dangerous way, and Alicia tries to take her mind off her drunken antics with Ethan by helping a frail - but wily - elderly patient with a cat-based dilemma.
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.
