Casualty: End of a short stretch

connie casualty(Series 29, ep.31) Free the Holby One! Who’s going to join me in my campaign to get Connie out of prison? I’ve got the placards, I’ve prepared the online petition…

Oh, hang on. She’s already out. Blimey, that was quick. And we have to thank none other than Charlie Fairhead, the Hercule Poirot of Wyvern. He didn’t even have to look in Rita’s locker to know that the missing pills were there (how thick is Rita to keep them in her locker anyway?). He just knew, because he’s Charlie and he sees into the human soul. “Do you really hate her that much?” he said to Rita, with a shake of that grizzled head, before convincing the police that the pills just happened to turn up.

So Connie is free. She hardly had time to get used to walking in flat shoes and sleeping in low thread-count sheets and she was out again, feeling the green green grass of Holby beneath her Louboutins. 

charlie casualtyCharlie was there to meet her, but they’d only had time to park up at the hospital, have a quick stare off with various staff members who couldn’t believe that Connie was once more among them, and Charlie got a phone call. His waste-of-space son Louis is apparently wasting space in a hospital bed in Bucharest, having been viciously beaten up. So Charlie is off to Romania, and Connie’s going with him because she owes him one. Brace yourselves for a Romania special.

Meanwhile, Max was still cross with Lofty because of the way he treated Robyn last week, but Robyn has already moved on – a glimpse of a leather-clad hunk delivering blood to the hospital left her literally drooling – with chocolate all over her face. We’ve all been there.

  1. Looking forward to the Romania episode, first time Casualty has been filmed abroad. I like the Connie/Charlie friendship, they seem respectful of each other as professional. Amazing how Connie still appeared glamourus in prison pas.

      I think Casualty might have been filmed abroad before (although it could well have been Epping Forest for all I know). I remember Claire Goose heading off the Australia to search for Sean; with the inevitable car breaking down in the outback, and near death rescue. I wasn’t a fan of either of them, and recall wanting a far more grisly ending.

    I agree, the Connie and Charlie friendship is a wonderful addition to Casualty. I look forward to the overseas episode; I think the two of them will be a force to be reckoned with.

    Rita is getting on my last remaining nerve now. She is so sanctimonious and self-righteous. Think she and Selfish Shellfish would get on perfectly!

    In other news; Hari Dhillon turned up in Law & Order: SVU episode season 16, episode 19 – “Granting Immunity” tonight… and his trousers were just as tight!!!

    The one thing that bugged me was how it did not match up in timeline to Holby how we saw Hanssen on Holby as ‘new CEO’ then everyone kept mention Guy Self as CEO on Casulty. Hoping he had some magic cure. They could mentioned Connie’s arrest in passing on Holby. It feels at the moment that the hosptial is on two different time lines and its just confusing and hard work when you watch both.
