A brand new series of Casualty and what an episode it was! An absolutely stellar instalment with terrific performances from all concerned and ‘heart in your mouth’ scenes. Here are some highlight while I catch my breath!
Dylan ~ Reluctant hero of the hour, Dylan is at the centre of the action as some of the team help out in a French refugee camp. He’s ‘befriended’ by a young lad and can’t walk away when a situation has him torn. The episode is an opportunity to show another dimension to the character and of course, Will Beck embraces that and brings the right amount of heart to the role when it’s needed.
Alicia ~ Alicia seems ill-equipped to deal with the dire situation before her and cracks open the booze – a decision which sees her side-lined when she needs to be at the hub. Not the wisest move there, Doctor!
David ~ David seems to be firing on all cylinders again after last series saw him plunge to the depths of despair, his mental health in tatters. He’s forging quite the formidable double act with Dylan.
Connie ~ Connie had been making great strides in her relationship with Grace, but it’s cut short when Sam absconds with their recuperating daughter. It seems he’s fed Grace a line that her mother is in on the plan and the youngster couldn’t be happier. Whereas Connie…. interestingly she drops the ball with a patient, and I expect that’s only the start.
Ethan ~ From Ethan’s behaviour, I’d say he is not going to find it easy to hide his secret. The fact that it’s eating away at him is clear and ultimately he does have too much integrity. I anticipate an implosion!
