Casualty: The one where Charlie quits

Casualty - Series 34 - EP29(Series 34, ep. 29 by Hilary Frankland 28.3.20) As usual, you can find a full and frank review over at Metro. But before you go…

– It always amuses me that when people leave their jobs on TV programmes they always take a box of stuff with them. Never a carrier bag – it’s always a box. There’s usually a plant in it as well, but Charlie didn’t have a plant. I bet he had a picture of Duffy so he’ll probably have to go and get the box back out of the bin when nobody’s looking.

– Will he be back, though? I mean properly? Casualty without Charlie feels like the end of days, as if we didn’t have enough apocalyptic stuff to worry about already. The ravens will be leaving the Tower of London next.

– It also always amuses me when they have ‘famous’ people on Casualty and Holby. I don’t mean Sharon Gless-type real famous people. I mean pretend ones like Cameron the graffiti artist, AKA Brian Brain or whatever it was. Everyone had heard of him. There used to be a man in my area who would paint tiny pictures on lumps of squashed and dried chewing gum on the pavement (seriously. They were quite good) but his arrival at the local hospital would not have caused anything like the Brian Brain level of excitement.

– And anything at all that happens, gets videoed and put on the internet is always seen within 5 minutes by a staff member (usually Jade) at the hospital. Does this really happen? I’m somewhat old and therefore not quite as glued to my electronics as some, but still…

– I hope we get to see Noel dressed as an elephant on an exercise bike. Though I can’t help thinking there may be trunk/handlebar entanglement issues.

  1. I don’t think it will be the end of Charlie. He would have a bigger and better send off than that! x
