Casualty: A harmonious exit for Ruby

Casualty - Series 34 - EP31(Series 34 ep. 31 by Michelle Lipton 18.4.20) Hop aboard your wee camper van and head over to Metro for this week’s review. But before you do…

– I’m very sad to see Ruby go. I’d stopped watching Casualty for a while at one point and the episode that marked my return to watching it regularly was the first one that Maddy Hill was in. I instantly liked Ruby’s kind, quirky character and I’ve enjoyed seeing how she’s grown in confidence and skill as a paramedic and how she’s formed close bonds with her workmates (particularly Iain and Jan) despite being so withdrawn at the beginning.

– It was a nice way for her to depart and I suppose leaves the door open for her to return, which is a lovely thing. But what a way to start a life of being responsible and stable – by giving up your home and your job (without any notice if you please) and going to Scotland in a camper van. For months.

– Though we know with 100% certainty that she’ll be a better carer for the baby than that Lavender creature, who seemed only too glad to dump Harmony on Ruby at the airport.

– Luckily all of Harmony’s stuff was still on the trolley and hadn’t been checked in yet.

– Amputating an arm with basically meat scissors! Oh my lord.

– Line of the week: (Jan’s pep talk to Ruby) “Don’t underestimate how strong you are, how resilient. If you were my daughter I’d be bloody proud of you.”

– Connie is really lucky that Nicola didn’t make a formal complaint against her. Her attitude to Howie was absolutely terrible. Rash should have had a bit more backbone as well.

– Dylan and Faith is dragging along a bit. Come on, we all know it’s going to happen.

  1. I will miss Ruby. Maybe she will return to Mick and L (EastEnders)?!. I would like a vehicle like her campervan. She drove it into the ambulance station, and then when she left, she drove straight out again – forward, without turning!
