Max is reunited with James, and old friend from medical school, who enters the ED with his fiancee Aisha after she falls victim to a seemingly spontaneous acid attack. The encounter also gives him cause to re-evaluate his relationship with his estranged wife Zoe, who has arrived at the hospital seeking a reconciliation. Meanwhile, Elle reveals she wants to tell Blake that Jacob is his father, and when the lad is admitted to the department with a compass stuck through his hand, now seems as good a time as any
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.
