(Series 33, ep. 22 by Rachel Paterson 2.2.19) There’s a proper Casualty review over at Metro, but one or two extra ponderings before you go.
– I really like the way Jan says Iain’s name in her Welsh accent, especially when she’s a bit cross with him. She did turn on him rather quickly, though, didn’t she? I suppose she was blinkered by maternal love for Nasty Ross. Charlie wasn’t fooled, though. Not only is he an excellent judge of staff, but he’s also been-there-done-that with waste of skin son Louis, so he knows a wrong ’un when he sees one.
– Michael Stevenson has been doing excellent work with what must have been a rather gruelling storyline. Iain’s speech to the DC about the drug victims he’d had to pick up in his job was really powerful.
– I think Ethan deleting Alicia’s number was just meant to be symbolic. As someone on Twitter pointed out, the next time she rings him her number will reappear on his phone again so it hasn’t gone forever, unless she never rings him again of course.
– I’m looking forward to Louise fighting the powers-that-be to protect her nurses. I love Louise when she’s having a good old righteous scowl at people.
