(Series 34, ep. 15 by Mark Catley and Colin Bytheway 7.12.19) You’ll be wanting to click over to Metro to read my full review of this episode. But before you go…
– I didn’t think there could be anything sadder than Duffy hallucinating her dead cat, but there is. It’s Duffy all ready for work, uniform spotless and gearing up for a day of world class caring and compassion, and not realising that she’s now the person being cared for rather than the person doing the caring.
– And also Charlie sobbing like a baby on the floor in the ED. Even though David’s comment about people mistaking him for an NHS art installation was very funny. You should see some of the weirdness they have standing around at my local hospital (not the patients. The art).
– Mason made brownies! Well done for steering away from cupcakes, which are the usual impress-your-colleagues baked goods.
– It’s always lovely to see Max Farnham from Brookside.
– I very much enjoy the start of Casualty when you have to try to work out who the casualty is going to be. Well done in this one for making it a three out of three.
– Though sometimes I’m less interested in the patients’ emotional traumas once they get into the ED because you know that in most cases you’ll never see them again so it’s hard to get invested. This one was quite interesting, though. That golf instructor man was entirely creepy.
– I guessed the golf instructor’s problem would be to do with the coffee – it was mentioned far too often for it to be an innocently by-standing beverage – but I didn’t guess that Max Farnham had been tampering with it.
